    Renderworks & Spotlight - Stumped.

    My book https://www.routledgetextbooks.com/textbooks/9780415726139/ will take you through the process all within VWX. That said, having VWX Vision in your arsenal might help

    Hanging scenery

    I would make the scenery a symbol and attach a data record with weight.

    Trying to simulate a laser beam

    So a VWX spotlight object with a really super narrow and hard beam with fog doesn't do what you want? Alternately, a custom Spotlight lighting device with a custom gobo?
  8. Well, I would save the original DTM, and you'll need a spare copy of the foundation, I would assume.

    Tool Finder Needed / Tool Search

    or just look at the alphabetical list of all tools in the workspace editor?
  13. I've seen this happen. I also wish I could readily open and edit the database. I had, for some time, and XML file and a TXT file

    how to create a knife bevel

    It's complex modeling, but I would use Sub-Division. You might able to do it with a series of Solid Subtractions, but it would be a challenge.
  15. Hi Kevin, it looks like you agree, do you mind voting for the idea on the top left?
