    VW 2018 sp3 : slow, hanging, crash

    I don’t have any antivirus on my mac and VW slows down significantly after a couple hours of work. It seems to be a memory related “problem”, as i see VW doesn’t really cleans memory efficiently and keeps eating ram until it dies.

    VW 2018 sp3 : slow, hanging, crash

    I miss those good old days when a new VectorWorks release was actually released after it was tested and optimized even if it took more than a year. It's sad that the "dev team" focuses on the "new content" instead of fixing the old ones and implement stuff that is actually needed. (Freeform bendable walls, window and door centerline data...etc.)

    Editing nurbs Path objects inside of an Extrude along path object in ortogonal view with Scale objects command makes the extrude along path command fail. Only works while in top/plan view. Is that a bug or a feature?

    Editing nurbs surfaces extracted from a solid subtraction works fine as wel...NOT.

    The message i got 99% of the time...than with the same item the command just makes the fillet later after a couple hundred tries. Anyways...VW2018 crashes more than any other VW combined together (the RAM is not the problem i have 48gb...or is that still not enough?) Working with pointclouds is a pain in the *** over 40million points... Extrude along path just became so sensitive it just doesn't make anything...and VW doesn't even let me know that after a couple minutes of "rainbowing", calculating the error. Gamer mode walkthrough still doesn't work in Multiple View Panes mode since i reported it to tech staff a couple months ago using the latest SP3. There are still no EU (eastern) standards in VW such as centerline data for windows and doors...etc. Doesn't Nemetschek own VW the same comany that owns Archicad? Please copy paste these "features" from there. By the way is there any way to classify building elements by deafult not by class? (Uniclass or Omniclass...etc?) Thank you. (I know nobody reads these entries here on the forums from VW staff but im so pissed off i had to write them down somewhere.) Oh and please use your own software and try it out on user affordable computers how it works. It is not optimized at all. (I'm using a late 2015 27" 5K CTO iMac i7 though and it struggles...)

    Doesn't work with VW 2016 SP6 latest OSX (10.13.2). Any solution yet?

    How can i automatically add height and width (+sill height) to doors and windows center line as a text / Dimension marker? 2nd and 3rd columns on attached picture. (I know i can add these manually if i convert a symbol from a door or window, but this should be a basic feature...not to mention that this is a standard over here in Europe...)

    Worksheet of PIO Fields

    I'm still looking for the formula to list wall surface areas (with wall IDs and different wall components listed) within one space (when the data is not in the space north,east...etc. wall finishes, because that can't handle that when i have more than 4 walls around a space). It would be nice to list wall component areas that a space boundary touches or contains. I could only list all my wall component areas, but that doesn't tell me which is in which space.

    Can i extract visible wall component areas from spaces somehow? Or is there any way to show the wall finishes in a worksheet shown in each room? I want to have a worksheet with columns named: Room name, Floor, Wall ID, Wall surface name component name, Wall surface (component) area without the doors and windows in the space (not the whole wall, only inside each space one by one) Thanks

    Is it possible to open another Navigation window to have layers and classes visible at the same time?

    Great! Thanks for the info. By the way...is it possible to export a .vrl file from Vectorworks or is there any plug-in, add-on that makes VW capable doing so?

    Yeah, sorry...i was just mentioning Unity as an example (a bad one)... Archiving stuff would be a good reason to use IFC 4 in that case though. Well, we hope the best and still looking for the best solution.

    I'm not sure there is, was just looking for a way what can be standardized (is that a word?:D )...anyways i know that some model elements can be exported by color and transparency, but i was looking for textures. As Mihail wrote IFC 4 is not certified in Vectorworks (still have no idea why is it there as a feature and how Building Smart let Nemetschek to use it)...so we need to look for another solution.

    Neither Solibri or Autodesk online viewer open IFC4 with textures. We are working on making a "standard" for architects to save their projects to IFC 4 and than we can integrate that to a software such as Unity to make VR for customers...but i guess we have to make it the hard way as usual...export OBJ, or FBX and textures and lights and IES...etc...
