    Free Texture Images

    I think this may have been posted here already, but just in case it wasn't: https://architizer.com/blog/practice/tools/free-material-textures/

    Good Renderworks settings for "architectural model" look?

    I think these are terrific.

    What Hardware Does What? - Upgrading your Hardware for Vectorworks

    OK thank you, Jim. But in any case, the GPU spec is basically left out of this particular consideration, focusing more on the speed and number of the cores, yes?

    What Hardware Does What? - Upgrading your Hardware for Vectorworks

    Jim, If the chokepoint in my setup right now is Hidden Line Render, then a big investment in a faster CPU(with more cores) would be better than a big investment in a better GPU, am I reading this correctly?

    Laser cut metal panels

    Christiaan, if you have a specific laser-cut pattern you'd like to try, send it along and we'll see about creating a sample texture for it. Dan J.

    OT: professional practice question for UK architects

    I had asked because of foreign clients that were slow in paying, basically. The situation is now resolved (I terminated the contract, with a mutual release). It's actually quite a long story, but boring.
  9. To my UK colleagues, a quick question. When releasing progress drawings to consultants and clients, or when releasing drawings as part of a construction bid package, but prior to obtaining a building permit–is it customary to place a "not for construction" note on the drawings? Here in the U.S. it is often advisable to place a note that says something similar to: "Not For Construction. May Only be Used with Permission from Architect of Record." Is there something similar used in the UK? Thank you, Dan Jansenson

    Camera Match - White Edges

    As a work-around you could put a "white box" in the background, with a doughnut hole cut out in the image area to reveal the black layer background...

    Camera Match - White Edges

    If you're rendering on a sheet layer, try making the sheet layer color (or background) black. Or dark grey. The white outlines may actually be transparent areas.

    Apple ditches Intel

    iMac Pro information

    Jim W. rumors are flying about a possible change to the Mac CPU infrastructure (i.e. a new chip made by Apple) and a transition away from Intel-based designs. Obviously this would require a reworking of the Mac VW version. Any in-house discussions of this that would be interesting to us naifs outside the building?
  15. Some are indeed there, but are older and with few selections. For example, Subaru has only a single exemplar, and an old one. Prius likewise has only a couple, and they're old as well. Many of the selections throughout are above five years old, so presenting contemporary designs might be slightly compromised. Not a complaint, mind you. It's good to have all these selections. But just responding to the opportunity to request new things.
