  1. One procedure that I saw in a webinar is to create 3d loci or stakes with the heights of the contours and then distribute those elements in the lines that you imported using the "Duplicate along path" (https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2018/eng/VW2018_Guide/Objects_edit1/Duplicating_Objects_Along_a_Path.htm). In that way you reduce the vertex number to be included in the new site model, making it much more lighter to work with. With the Existing Site Model created, you'll include the Site Modifiers to get to the final grading that you desire and you'll get the values.
  2. Yes, just changed the height of the wall with 1900m to 3,048m and the result is like this:
  3. @sbarrett thanks for your reply. Indeed we have several months without rain, so almost certainly the error is overthere. Thank you and I'll follow your contributes closely.
  4. Hi guys, Excellent resource, already on my drawing standarts!! Just one situation to report: the precipitation chart doesn't work for my location. I attach the file so you can see if it is something from my location (absense of data?) or not. Thank you very much and keep up the good work!! PrecipitationChart_180523_v2020.vwx
  5. Hi guys, I've been using Vectoworks Landmark since 2017 and, at this moment, I use it as my exclusive software. Each project that I develop with Vectorworks I try to enhance the BIM capabilities of the software (IFC import, water budget, plant schedule, etc.). After seeing the webinar with Eric Berg, I saw that I have a long path to walk... The questions that I would like present are: Do you reccomend a specific online course? Last year I did one about Sustainable Site Design / Analysis and helped me a lot. Do get to a "smart design", I saw a lot of custom spreadsheets. Are they done with the normal spreadsheets or are you using other resources? Can you give your feedback to "step up the game" and use all the resources that VW offers? Thanks!!
  6. This is something that I had already struggled and still didn't had a solution. How do I do several copies from an original object without knowing the number of copies? What I would like to do is to copy an object giving a base point and then just click where I want my copied object layed out. Can someone help me?
  7. I contacted the VW support team a month or so ago about this. The website is down due to some legal problem but they should come back. I'm willing to buy the whole package as well... If someone gets some feedback from other source, please share it!
  8. Hi guys, I'm struggling with a custom folding measures. I'm trying to prepare my layout with the following folding measurements: I place the measures but I never get that specific layout. I attach a sample file so you can take a look and possibly sort this question. Best regards, João Rodrigues TEST_FOLD.vwx
  9. Hi Jonathan. True, I forgot to tell to use site modifiers (pad or contours) on the top and base of the stairs (creating a steeper slope in the exact area of the stairs in order to be seen). If you don´t do it the stairs will be hidden by the site model. Thanks
  10. They can touch, you might have a struggle if you have a side wall, it will tend to make a corner on the first or last tread. But it's a matter of trial and error.
  11. Hi, What I usually do is to work either with Pads (Site Modifiers - Pad) or Hardscapes and draw the plan. I attach an example so you can take a closer look both of the commands (just an example, just to demonstrate the tools). Good luck!! TEST_v2015.vwx
  12. Draw the Line -> Right click on the line -> Create Objects from Shapes -> Wall
  13. Hi guys. Another way to do it is to use the wall tool: each tread is a different wall and you change the width according your drawing. The height is manipulated by the levels of each wall. Hope it helps you!!
  14. Hi guys, quick question: Does anyone knows what is hapening with the Rendermall website (http://vwx.rendermall.com/)? It is unavailable at least in the last two days... I would like to buy some 3D plants but is getting hard to do it... Regards,
  15. Hi guys, I'm starting a new landscape architecture project and I'm having some issues concerning top/plan representation of an IFC file. From what I understood, when I import an IFC model to VW, the elements are recognized as an "IFC Entity", but, entering in edition mode, are just Extrudes, creating a problem in the top/plan representation. Any suggestions to correct this problem? Any IFC import procedure should be done? Create 2d Poly's of the faces of the Extrude Objects? Just attach some print screens of the situation (the site models were already created by me). Thanks!!
