  1. The programmer of the CAM solution solved the problem instantly by implementing subfolder browsing to the Import Plugin. Anyway i think it would be nice to have the option to disable creating the folder if possible ( i.e. if no hatches, fills etc. are exported)
  2. Hello, Is there a way to prevent VW (2016) from creating a new folder for each DXF Export? If i export without fills or hatches i dont see a reason to create a new folder for each file. My CAM programs "Quick File import" doesnt search into sub- folders, so i always have to dive into the subdirectories manually- thats a little annoing. I hope there is a solution- if not please add this to the wish list smile. Thank you and Kind Regards, Hannes _________________________ Hannes Lackner Joinery++Tyrol/Austria

  5. hello, You can use the "edit" command to enter the extrude's profilegroup ( or the Path, of course) and move the profile(s) to the correct position. HTH, Hannes
  6. quote: This would be great for 3D piping, 3D handrails and other such things. I think what is really needed for that is a 3-D pipe plug-in. The plug-in would have a 3-D path, created from a (degree 1) nurbs curve, and a radius and diameter value. The plug-in would generate a pipe of the given diameter corresponding with the provided path, putting in curved pieces at the corners.. I made a Plugin for such purposes, unfortunately it has one small bug. If the bug is eliminated maybe i will consider to make the tool availlable to others.

  7. Hi, no dumb question. Most PIOs in VW 9 are code protected so you can't edit them. What you can do is to copy a PIO from VW 8 into VW 9. Note that some code will not work without editing.HTH, Hannes [ 08-14-2002: Message edited by: Hannes ]
  8. Kathie, Andrew, he talks about the extruded rectangle tool, not a extruded rectangle;-) Jono, the extruded rectangle tool creates a mesh, not a extrudet rectangle. It's not a good name for this tool...Best in my opinion is to draw a rectangle and extrude it, then you can edit just as Kathie mentioned. HTH, Hannes [ 06-12-2002: Message edited by: Hannes ]

  11. Yes, a great thing! Thanks for the good work you've done! -Hannes [ 04-10-2002: Message edited by: Hannes ]

  14. quote: Originally posted by maxxhdrm: Another new user question. Thanks in advance for the patience. I added an object "Simple Door 2" into a room layout drawing, but needed to resize it to fit the scale. Couldn't figure out a way to make it the right size. Tried the resize/fixed point tool, but that didn't work.Is there a way to do this?Thanks again! The simple door2 is a Pluginobject, which means that you can change size, style etc. by changing the parameter in the Objectinfo palette. HTH,Hannes
  15. Thetagroup releases a new english version ofMC closet, now called 'interiorWorks'.Take a look at this link: http://vectorworks-l@peach.ease.lsoft.com/scripts/wa.exe?A2=ind0203d&L=vectorworks-l&F=&S=&P=18755
  16. quote: Originally posted by Pat A Montalbano: Hannes thanks for that link but in case you didn't look at the link I included we are both looking at the same software package. That addon is a reason I'm considering vector works. but to the other responses it seems that you recommend I go with the architect version opposed to the basic vectorworks 9.5 i think it is thanks pat hello Pat, Yes we are talking about the same add on. I also use VW for cabinet design and don't think that the architektural version will bring you much advantage compared to the basic version. HTH, Hannes
  17. search about circular stair;-) -Hannes
  18. Are you aware about the 'Height'field in the objectinfo? Select your door and type in the value you want. Also if the door is a symbol you can edit the symbol and move the door up. In this case all inserted instances of the symbol in the drawing will change it's z- position. HTH,Hannes
  19. Or you use the edit command to edit the extrusion,then you can cut the original 2d object, exit the extrusion and paste the 2d object. -Hannes
  20. I also noticed this strange behaviour sometimes, i think its depending on the plain transparency shader or the glass reflectivity shader, or a combination of both... I am not able to reproduce this exactly, sometimes it works, sometimes not ( the same file). -Hannes
  21. Take a look at WWW.Vectordepot.com It's a great source for Scripts, Symbols, etc..
  22. quote: Originally posted by mike46: Hi I've had the same situation with garage doors. where the door passes through the bottom of the wall and below the top of the foundation there is a line through the door when the model is rendered. Mike In VW 9 You can also reshape the bottom of the wall. Use the 3d reshape tool and add a peak to each bottom corner of your garage door.Makes sense?
  23. On PC hold down the Esc key until the rendering terminates.I noticed that VW 8 needs longer to abort therendering than VW 9. It depends on file size tooi think and it can last a few seconds. [ 02-15-2002: Message edited by: Hannes ]
  24. i'll take a look into the code. My email Adress: Hanneslackner@aon.at
