  1. thanks for that - I just tried "unfold surface" on one of my objects, but didn't work as it was a compound curve ...but "tool tip" says it would work on a surface modified in one dimension, such as the surface of a cylinder. would be better if I could start with a flat shape and move it around without distorting, but you are correct - there would be so stretching for sure...I would have to approximate, and the fabricator would need to factor that in. I would like to do a model that is "build-able" and not one that is misleading. Its a conundrum.
  2. zoomer- is it possible to not distort the size/shape/volume/area of the nurbs surface when moving it around? How do I "lock" the shape? I want to be able to start with a flat material so I can draft it later for the fabricator.
  3. Help please! I would like to model flat sails, possibly with slight curves cut into the sides, and want to be able to have that as a flat pattern for the fabricator. I also want manipulate the sails in 3D without distorting it, so I can see what it would do if twisted or bowed etc. Some of the sails may need to be more than 3 or 4 sides... How do I accomplish this in VW? .... The reverse would be to model something I like, then flatten or unfold the sails to get the patterns, but don't that is possible in VW? any tips? thanks in advance- JC
  4. Curtain Wall tool drives me crazy. In the past whenever I would try to edit one horizontal up or down, the rest of the horizontals revert to some default, and I would have to re-do everything. More recently I stopped using it and create them with extrudes.
  5. Andy are you coming the the VW use group meeting 2PM on Saturday at the ADG? Hope to see you there.
  6. did you try increasing the resolution (DPI) in the sheet layer? Also try increasing the CAMERA resolution/dpi in OIP...
  7. @Maho555 you may have to change preferences again if it happens again... which it did for me. I have not updated to Mojave either... holding off til the coast is clear!
  8. The same "ghosting mirrors" thing was happening on my iMac Pro when I would scroll- zoom in or out...I would have to restart. I was able to fix it by changing preferences for navigation graphics to "Best Compatibility" .
  9. I am using 2019 with Mac OS high Sierra... .I have had trouble with panning and zooming in viewports. It was creating ghost images. Pat Stanford suggested I change my graphics preferences which I did. That seems to have solved the problem. I will heed the warning NOT to upgrade to MOJAVE just yet.
  10. Great- Thanks!! Is that an add-on or plugin? How do I get that?
  11. How do I get a 4" wide sash around the perimeter of of window opening using the custom sash options? When I try to add it, I get 4" sash between every muntin. I made the muntins 4" wide to simulate the sash pattern in between and thats not right either. Also when I try making the jamb 4" wide, to simulate a 4" sash all around, it does not sit in the 12" thick wall properly. This is an existing location with a wood sash pattern, but should I just simulate it with the CURTAIN WALL TOOL instead? Thanks Judy d
  12. Is there a way to set a default style for a viewport label? Specifically for Font Style, line weight, bubble scale factor, Drawing # size, and Title Text size?
