    Vectorworks to Revit Export

    What is the most up to date recommended workflow to export BIM objects from Vectorworks to Revit while keeping their properties intact?
  4. Hi, I have come across this problem with one of my Vectorworks file. When I try to open the file it gives me this error "Unexpected end of file encountered during file read operation" and when I hit ok, it goes into recovery mode and recovers only a few layers out of all. I am trying to find out a way to recover this file completely. Please if anybody who had a similar experience and successfully recovers the file can guide me through the process. Thanks!

    Guard rail for ramps

    Hi Everyone, I have noticed ramps has its own rail but there are not many setting available to customize it. Is there a way to use normal railing for ramps or change railing for ramps to be more flexible. What I am trying to achieve is to match ramp guard rail to match with my other railing-See attached Thank you!

    Perspective/Orthogonal view issue

    Hello Everyone, I may have changed some setting for renderworks camera or something else happened but now all the orthogonal views in one of my files appear to have a cutting plane that does show the whole model. It may be a tiny bit of setting but its really annoying. Please guide anyone who has the same experience. See attached a screenshot. Thanks

    Perspective/Orthogonal view issue

    @Andy Broomell Geometry is around 1500' away from 0,0 in the document and it also happens with the renderwork camera.

    Perspective/Orthogonal view issue

    @Wes Gardner Restarting Vectorworks didn't help. @Boh it is not being clipped on viewport but the design layer 3d view. I have noticed it is only happening in narrow and normal perspective and not in orthogonal view of that specific file.

    RFA file import issue

    I am trying to import a Revit *.rfa file for a product, VW is giving me this error "This version of Revit file is not supported". Does anybody have a solution to this? Thanks
  10. @Matt Panzer How long does it take usually for Vectorworks to fix such issues?
  11. Yes, it is the same bug. @Matt Panzer File size is 300 kb
  12. I believe I have placed them correctly. I am using Architect 2018 SP3. Interestingly this forum is giving me an error when I am trying to upload a file with skylights but I am able to upload a VW file without it.

    Project file is not being updated

    Hi All, I am having continuous trouble while saving and checking out layers in Vectorworks 2018. I have been using dropbox for quite a while and never encountered such long delays for project file to update even when I was alone working in it. Attached see image showing the message I get every time I try to check out layers. It would be huge help if anybody has any insight on this topic.

    I am having issue exporting web view in Vectorworks 2018. I am wondering if someone has anymore info on this. Thanks! H
  15. I am thinking to use subdivision tool for modeling a character. Has anybody have any experience with it. I have used Autodesk Maya and Blender earlier for similar purposes. I would really appreciate suggestions and comments!
  16. Hi Everyone, We are having difficulties with sometimes work is not being saved even after saving and committing in a project sharing file since we updated to 2018. We tried making a new project file after making previous project file into normal Vectorworks file. I am wondering if someone is having the same issue or know anything about it. Thank you!

    Work is not being saved in project sharing file

    For me checking out each layers from project sharing through drop down menu works rather then checking out objects while making changes. Sp1 definitely resolve few issues specially graphics glitches but still it is far from being perfect.
  18. Can please somebody tell me the overall difference between Sectional viewport tool and Interior Elevational viewport tool? I have been using Sectional viewport tool for interior elevations and started to use Interior elevational tool for elevation for super small spaces due to its small marker on plan. For me they both work in same manner but if anyone has a better understanding about the difference between these two tools.
  19. Is there a way to remove the line shows up in Interior elevation viewport?Please see attached images
  20. Hi Everybody, I am using some bitmap images in my project model. These Images are the murals that we are using on the wall. When I create a sectional viewport on to sheets in hidden rendering , it does not show up but I can see them when I try to edit the sectional viewport within section in-place or in design layer. Is there a way to use these images (in whatever format) so it can be visible in sectional viewports. Thank you!
  21. I am having trouble with a project sharing file. It automatically checkout layers and more importantly it shows me as person who checkout the layer. I can not release or checkout again. Please see an image showing the message I get, in this case I am the owner (hassan Raza) it won't let me do anything. Thanks
  22. Does anybody have issue with creating a sectional viewport of U shape stair on to sheet? Please see attached image It looks good in 3d perspective or in plan but when a sectional viewport is created is starting to mess up .

    Problem with U Shape stair section

    Thanks for the reply. Does this problem occurs with general stair tool or specifically with U shape stair?
  24. Is it possible to switch on same classes as shown in viewport while editing design layers within viewport without controlling it manually? i hope I make sense here. When you try to edit a design layer within a viewport it always shows you those classes which were switch on before you were working directly working on design layers. For example; I am working on one of the design layers I have. I tend to switch between my floor plans on the sheets and design layers though double clicking on the viewport. It always take me to the classes that were on when I was working on the design layer rather then showing me the same classes that are visible in the viewport on to the sheets. Is there a way to find the same classes turned on while editing viewports.
