    Renderworks Image Export Issue

    can you send me the file? Class should have a solid, usually white fill.

    Renderworks Image Export Issue

    they might have a class assigned to them, and the class might have a solid gray fill.

    Renderworks Image Export Issue

    did you check to see if they have a solid fill in either a class assignment, or the attributes palette?

    Renderworks Image Export Issue

    are you exporting for the design layer? If so, try creating a sheet layer viewport and rendering/exporting for the sheet layer, Also, do those image props have a solid gray fill?

    That's a big quoin. The sale answer is yes, start with a 3D model, and view in perspective. What are you trying to draw?

    I use a DTM from the Architect and Landscape products for this kind of work.

    Does the sidewalk have a solid fill in it's attributes? Is it stacked below the terrain? In general, textures do not show in 2D, you can add a hatch to a texture and see that in 2D if you view the 2D in a hidden line view, not wireframe.

    Sample VWX File

    I try to lay out a plan to grow from in my book, including simple files https://www.routledgetextbooks.com/textbooks/9780415726139/

    Renderworks or Artlantis Advice

    I don't know Artlantis, but Renderworks does nice, well, work. There is also an augmented reality feature in the VWX cloud, which can put furnishings in rooms.

    editing the purpose of a lighting fixture

    or Lightwright?

    Repeating different sized exterior finish

    This seems like an option could/should be added to the tiles procedurals. Adding the image option only available with bricks, and irregular verticals, with some specified parameters.

    Not seeing reflection/shadow in glass

    Try making the mirror substantially less. Looks like it is reflecting a white or no background.

    Not seeing reflection/shadow in glass

    What's the base color? What is you use Mirror and not glass reflectivity?

    Not seeing reflection/shadow in glass

    I would suggest making the center color closer to white, and making sure the dark is not true black.

    Importing IFC data from symbols in another drawing

    hat if you insert an instance of the symbol directly from the library?
  16. OK, where to begin. The work isn't mine, so I have some speculation here. The work was by a client. I believe he used a stock title block from 2019. I did a Save-As and the file name now fits in the boundaries. I did have to 'edit' the title block for the TB to find the change. That seems like a bug, It should know. In any event, the title block has not moved. I was just able to edit the title block Layout and move the title block. That fixed the problem. I had tried that previously, but the move did not work. In 2019, the placement of the title block geometry no longer as it did before, with he lower right point attaching to the border object? I can understand using one Locus, see above, if I want the TB to float away from the border, but I'm not sure why two would be required.

    3D modelling

    Backdrops are among the few places I might extrude a line.

    Animation for VW ?

    You might look into modeling your own lighting devices, adding a lens and a VWX spotlight object to the same symbol.
  19. hmmm, last I looked, if you zoomed in on the lower right hand corner where the title black and border should be aligned, the title block was offset slightly. In the symbol definition, the title block geometry is properly located.

    MVR questions

    As I understand it, MVR is not yet supported. It will be interesting to see if some of this is just the point in time, or if some of these are bugs
  21. @Nikolay Zhelyazkov Hope this can help. As I recall, this is a stock title block, all else in the file has been deleted. Acropolis_Lighting_Light Plot_SH 3kla.vwx

    Arc Dimensioning

    I did a similar thing with the Witness lines Perpendicular to the tangent mode.
  23. It sounds like a PITA, but someone smarter than me might be able to write a script. Is there a scenic department template file? Can you develop a policy where everything scenic is in class like "scenic-" and the same with layers. That might simplify things somewhat on your end.
  24. Can you fix one and use the eyedropper and paint bucket?
