    Remote QR-Code blank and Start Server Crash

    Hello, What could be the reason for the Remote QR-Code not appearing (blank) and when clicking on "Start Server" VW crashing? Broken Plug-in? Firewall blocking? ...something else? Thank you!

    Is it possible to create a Section-Viewport in Wireframe? 

    Yes. That will do for something specific that I need. Thank you very much. Well thought!

    Anyone, please?
  4. Is it possible to create a Section-Viewport in Wireframe? I want my model to be represented in Wireframe, but after I create a Section of it, I do not find an option that lets me keep it as Wireframe in the Section-Viewport. Closest I find in the list is "Hidden Line". Thank you!

    Export 3D PDF - Layers Order

    Is it possible to influence the order of Layers and classes when exporting 3D PDF? I have an order of Layers 01, 02, 03, etc... and I want them to be exported in that order as a 3D PDF and stay in that order when opening my PDF viewer. Is this possible? Right now they stay in a disorganised order. Thank you!

    Export Import DWG Problems - General questions

    It worked. Youre great! Thank you so much! I am happy that such a simple command solves the situation and above all that is not a problem from Vectorworks! Thank you!!
  7. Hello, When I Export a File from Vectorworks as .DWG, certain curves lines (arcs) and polylines change to line segments that are not curved anymore and the shapes change from round shapes to shapes with angles (squared). If I import back that same file to Vectorworks, some longer lines become fragmented in smaller lines. Is there any options to avoid this situations or at least make it smaller? Increasing the document DPI did not helped. In general I find several problems with Export .dwg and Import .dwg Thank you.
  8. Yesterday I watched the Webinar "Irrigation design in vectorworks landmark" until the end, but during the Q&A the time was already about 10 minutes past the determined 1 hour length, hence making me late for another appointment. So I had to close it. I still got a questionnaire about my satisfaction but this morning I noticed that I didn't received the usual mail stating that I was there plus the Email with the Certificate. This means I've to let the Webinar run until the its last second, even though the time is far more than what was previous determined so I can get it done? Whats going on? This also means that 1 hour length can be way more than that, making me stuck to this way longer than what was previously programmed, never being sure when it will end. I take time seriously and 1 hour is 1 hour. Not plus 15 or 20 minutes. I made a big effort to open this one hour in my schedule and watch this Webinar and had another important appointment right after that couldn't wait. If I close the program during Q&A I should still be able to get the Certification, I watched the full Webinar for the full 1 hour of duration that in reality was even more.
  9. I have a Polyline 2D area that is my "Path" and I have a NURBS that I want to Extrude Along Path. Question: Can I convert that NURBS into a polyline so I can make the Extrude Along Path? When I try to convert the Copy does not stay in the same place. It just rotates around when I rotate like its floating in space. Or can I just do it with a NURBS? Thanks!

    Webinars, What are this Credits? What I do with them?

    @Pat Stanfordthank you very much for your answer! It was really clarifiying. I watch the Webinars because I want to learn and I enjoy them. Just wanted to know if I was missing something, since I didn't understood the meaning of those Credits. I live in Germany and we don't need to do such.

    Can I create a 3D object from a CAD drawing in Vectorworks?

    Play with the tools that Wes Gardner posted and when more specific questions appear... I'm sure you will find help in this forum. I know I did when I started learning. There are a few tutorials in youtube. For example this playlist:

    Can I create a 3D object from a CAD drawing in Vectorworks?

    This drawing is 2D? You can import the file to Vectorworks and create a 3D object from it. Be it a .jpg .pdf .dwg etc... 3D warehouse you mean SketchUp, right? SketchUp files can be used with Vectorworks and edited. Side tip: I don't know if this changes with language versions, but in the German version Vectorworks 2018 can't read files form SketchUp 2018, so the SketchUp file must be saved as a SketchUp 2017 or below file version.

    3D - From SketchUp to Vectorworks (newbie)

    Can you specify what kind of 3D / Projects you want to do? For example I work with the Landscape Architecture Tools (Landmark) can do pretty much next to everything that Vectorworks allows for this field. But, for example, my Architecture knowledge isn't much more than the basic tutorial about how to set up walls, windows, doors, etc. The 3D tools, free form, NURBS, subdivision, etc... are great for any details and/or object that you want to create from scratch. There are plenty of tutorials about those on Youtube. Vectorworks learning curve is a bit higher than SketchUp (which is extremely easy to learn), but Vectorworks is much more rewarding in longer term and the learning curve is not even deep. I use both as my work tools currently and for some time already. You can also model/create an object with SketchUp and import it into Vectorworks or vice versa.
  14. Last week I registered myself to a Webinar and watched it Live. Afterwards I got an email with a "Certificate of Completion" also telling me that I earned 1 AIA LU credit. This week already register myself for another Webinar that is happening next Thursday. 1. What are this Credits (AIA LU, LA CES PDH...)? What do I do with them? I intend to watch more Webinars in the future. Do this credits have any use or are just personal tokens for us to save in our email box (or print the certificate)? 2. Should I be logged in with an account when I register to this Seminars over and over to keep some track / historical of what I've watched and how many Credits I collected? Until now I've been just filling the register questionnaire with my Info. Name, Company, email, Location, etc. Thank you! edit: typos

    Street Lamp - Light Off and Day Time. How?

    My Lamps are 3D objects on the design Layer. I never did a Viewport for 3D. All I do is Render, Export Image and then import that Image into my Layout. The Window > Palette > Visuatization worked for me to have the Street Lamps off. That is what I needed. Now I just need to find a way to make the sun come back while those lights stay off. Edit: Im reading about "Heliodon" as its the first time I see that. Im not sure if in German the word will be the same. But Im going to find it out.
