  1. Hi Juan, Thanks for the info, the file was made for the company, they don't have access to navisworks and neither do I unfortunately. I'll keep digging and see if there is another version somewhere! Thanks, Jazz
  2. Hi all, I'm working on a project and I've been sent a navisworks .nwd file. Is there a way of importing this directly into VW20? I'm not too familiar with all this so any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Jazz
  3. Morning/afternoon/evening world! Wondering if anyone can help me, I'm trying to apply textures to doors in walls. I'm going to the render tab in object info and chaging it to an appropriate texture but it doesn't seem to be applying it in the opengl of the model. Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong...... again..... Thanks, Jazz
  4. @Aspect_Design Yeah, I'm digging the movements, going to make everything so much easier! Looking forward to getting used to it!! I'm really hoping the buttons wil make my life so much easier, particularly with the toolsets and also the radial menu is so cool! @herbieherb Yeah, I love how smooth it is between all the programs, so quick! It does mean you have to be aware of what you have open so you don't get confused! it's the shortcut configuration area that is confusing me, the Vectoworks folder is there but it isn't populated with many shortcuts that I can see, particularly compared to what I've seen when researching online. I cam across a post on a forum where a user had mentioned that they had the 'default vectorworks' profile loaded and when they loaded the 'VW 2020' profile it was far better. Just no clue what this was about!
  5. Hello everyone! Wondering if anyone can help me, I'm a bit confused. Not an unusual occurence to be fair! I received my lovely spacemouse and cadmouse wireless kit today to use with Vectorworks 2020 and I'm just trying to get my head around the customisation. I've looked around on various websites to find out how to customise the buttons and so forth, but in the customisation fields I can only see some basic commands, whereas on many of the videos there appear to be a huge list of commands to choose from. Are these ones people have done themselves or am I missing something? I'm on the latest drivers... :o( I'm using this on a windows laptop. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Jazz
  6. Wow, would have thought VW would have made the wheelchair library files on general release!
  7. Hey, I did a bit of trial and error on it, got it to work in essence! Thanks for the assist! Jazz
  8. Hey, Still having a headache trying to get the nurbs curves, particularly at the back, in a way to get the sweep of the hull. Does anyone have any pointers?? I've attached a pic of the model. Slowly going insane!! Thanks in advance! Jazz
  9. Ah, yeah! It did keep coming up with an error when I tried that function. Can you explain what you mean by change the direct? Thanks! Jazz
  10. Hi all, I'm still attempting to model the hull of a steam paddler, and whilst I am intending on using nurbs curvs and lofts for most of the hull, there are a few sections that are difficult to do that way due to not having and frame details for the hull. I'm trying an extrude along path method, but it is proving difficult. I can't get the 2d poly to extrude correctly. Does anyone have any ideas. I've attached some pictures, th e first shows the 2d shape and the path, the next shows what happens with no lock profile plane or fixed profile then the last shows the extrude with the lock profile plane option. The path is the exact curve of back of the boat structure, but the extrude isn't following this? I'm close to a meltdown.... another cup of tea is required! Thanks in advance Jazz
  11. Ah, perfect. I will look at the tutorials now!! Thanks for the pointer!
  12. Hi everyone! Hope you are all staying safe. So I'm currently modelling a steam paddler ship for a project and I'm wondering if anyone has any tips on how to model all the sweeps of the hull? I'm new to 3D modelling and trying to figure out the best way to do this. It doesn't have to be perfect, I don't have the frame structure, just side elevation and plan views. It's bursting my head a little! Thanks in advance! Jazz
  13. Yeah, I followed that. Well, as much as I could. Clearly I've done something daft somewhere with my drawing settings. Will continue to plod on. Thansk for all the help! Jazz
  14. Hey, Yep, tried that. It seems to make no difference whatsoever. Boring!
