  1. Hi @LarryO, you have multiple options. The easiest way (even if you work with simple 2D shapes) to create a Record in the Resource manager, name it as you wish, add the desired fields with values than you can attach the record to an object. (See attached screenshots 1-3.) The other way if you need more specific classification is to create 3D objects, than classify them by attaching IFC. You can than specify the object type in IFC 2x3 or IFC4, than fill out the "material" field of the IFC. You can create (and rename) deafult materials for different object types in the Data Manager located under the "Tools" menü by deafult. (See attached screenshots 4-5.) After that you only need to create Reports under Tools/Reports/Create report..., set the desired criterias and you can export the worksheet (from the worksheet's file menü) either in excel or csv...or some other formats.
  2. @zbone How i would do: Create the drawing with all the details, place down all elements. Place all the different equipment (symbols) on different classes Create a viewport of the floorplan with all needed classes turned on On the sheet layer click on the viewport and in the Object info window select classes and turn off all classes except the one which needs to be separated (symbol class for water tank for example) Double click on the viewport and select "Annotations" and delete the deafult drawing label, than exit. Now you only see the equipments (water tanks) on the floor plan viewport - Select "Clip tool" with "Split mode" and rectangle split all the equipment needed onto separate viewports Select all - turn on needed classes in Object info/classes (walls, windows...etc.) Arange the viewports as needed onto separate sheets or pages Cheers.
  3. VW 2022 27.0.3 (SP3.1) solved this issue.🥳
  4. This is how VW shows every extrude elements with polys. I guess its not how it supposed to be. SP3 VW2022 on M1 Pro. weird.mov
  5. Well that gives me hope! 😄
  6. I don't think it's a good feature as i just simply can not see where to snap a group for example in shaded mode other than wireframe mode... I don't understand why does Nemetschek think that if something works they need to touch that to "improve" on something...Usually it does not work. 😞
  7. So...is this a bug or a feature?
  8. Nah...the scan resolution is ok. The higher the dpi the smaller the points are...
  9. I ask this for a long time now...when will this happen? 😄 (I gave up on render passes though...) Please add perspective correction to camera settings. Pretty please.
  10. Yes i know, i wanted to render it on shaded now...but as you said it is a dpi thing. Thanks! The "sheet layer pointcloud section render bug" is resolved in SP3, but the pointcloud is still problematic as i just can't see it nicely above 72 dpi. (It is almost invisible in webview too...) If i turn the sheet layer's dpi down to 72 or lower the pointcloud is more visible, but than the drawing is pixelated. I know the workaround (save the low res pic, than import it back again and render it in 300dpi...etc.), but simply adding more options for pointcloud would be the absolute win as i don't have to do it over and over again as i change something in the pointcloud. I mean just to add a "set point size" setting that could solve the dpi problem. The blue background pics are just examples of setting the point size of the same pointcloud. ps.:or maybe a better top/plan view...similar to Faro's overview map. (see bw attached pic)
  11. Yeah i sometimes use that when i shoot with a drone but i like to have more adjustments and settings. On the ground i use lidar...i though it comes through with the screenshots. Those images i attached are made from a 3D scans. Like this one:
  12. Hi! I've mailed you the link to the file. Thanks for the advices. You mean to use the lidar data to "reproduce" the interior? If that is the question, i just simply create sections in the Leica's own software (Cyclone) and than i just add the scaled .pngs to Vectorworks. I attached png example that i used last time for facade reconstruction and the same applies to floor plans as well...just the cutting plane is horizontal instead of vertical. (2nd pic) Than i just use walls to recreate the interior.
  13. I'm having an issue since SP or 2...but it's still there in SP3. Moving a group ends up displaying a huge bounding box...which actually gives me a hard time placing and snapping groups to the right position. Does anyone know about this or am i the only one struggeling with this issue? It's on my M1 pro mac. Screen Recording 2022-03-17 at 23.22.03.mov
  14. @zeno SP3 still did not fix this. It's a bit better, but still...
  15. Yeah...sadly it's just a "workaround"...it has its downsides. I wish new VW releases would take more than a year development like back in the "old days".
  16. I bought a 3Dconnexion SpaceMouse Compact and i use it to move the camera smoothly around. Simply i just create a shaded render and i record the video with quicktime - screen recording. 😄
  17. @Anders BlombergI just use the standard version of metashape. It depends what you want to achive. I mean if you need to cover bigger areas from a higher altitude or you need preplanned flights to be executed...etc. you might need to go for a bigger bird. For having the "learning curve" i recommend using the Mini 1-2 and see what it does. It still holds a pretty nice value on the market even if its used so don't worry loosing much money buying one. Actually...if you're already a VSS subscriber you have the opportunity to create photogrammetry right away inside of Cloud Services for Vectorworks. Simply you just need to upload your photos (they don't need to be shot by a drone) and click on 'photos to 3D model". You will get the results shown in the list above on the screeshot I've attached.
  18. https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2017/eng/VW2017_Guide/Export/Exporting_in_Shapefile_Format.htm If that doesn't work, i'd just export it to DXF and open it in QGIS for example. Than you can export shapefile from there.
  19. Oh...and the strange thing is that i can not even color the pointcloud to black as you did...mine is just white and shows the whole thing...
  20. @Tom W. yup...that's what i have too. It used to work in VW2021, now it doesn't. Pic from 2021 on my other computer. I bet it is a "bug" of some sort...
  21. I'd just go and buy a Mini 1 or a Mini 2. The resolution is of course dependent on the picture quality itself, but also the number of images taken. I use a Mini 1, but it is way enough for my work...small buildings, sites and facades. I basically use Metashape for photogrammetry, but you can use the integrated photogrammetry for VSS users in VW cloud. You don't need RTK if you don't need to do high (lower than 5cm) precision results. Here are some examples of my Mini 1 and using metashape's photogrammetry: ps.: oh...and don't forget if you just try to learn how to fly a drone, i'd recommend you to fly a cheap one so when you (hopfully never) crash it you just go and buy another one. (Or buy "dji care" for the drone so you get another one if you crash it for cheap.) And after you get familiar with the controls and prehaps master it, you can move forward to a bigger bird.
  22. Hi, is it possible to create a section viewport of a pointcloud somehow on a sheet layer? Whatever i do, the RGB colored pointcloud is only visible in white. It does not show up in hidden line render and i need a background set up to actually see something on a white background. This is the original rgb colored one on a design layer: And this is the hidden line render version:
  23. Hi, i've made two videos on two issues...i didn't want to open two different topics for this. First, when i try to extract a surface of an object sometimes it makes the surface in the selected object's class. (1st video) The other thing is just a UI thing...the Navigation window's columns input fields are shifted slightly on the left for every column. (2nd video) Class on creation.mov Nagivation columns input field shifted.mov
  24. It started flickering for me again...I had a pretty big site, using latest vw 2022 sp and an M1 pro macbook pro. VW restart actually solved the issue...for now...
  25. Reviving the topic! Will this be in the English version any time soon?!
