  1. 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?

    VBVisual Plant Website

    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!

    Page Folding

    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

    Workflow for creating wonky stairs?

    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

    Workflow for creating wonky stairs?

    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.

    Creating different levels and slopes within a garden design.

    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

    Draw the Line -> Right click on the line -> Create Objects from Shapes -> Wall

    Workflow for creating wonky stairs?

    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!!

    Rendermall unavailable

    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,

    IFC Import

    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!!

    Site Model Crop | Error on Surface

    Hi guys, good afternoon, I attach to this post the VW file. The project relates to a road rehabilitation (creation of a walkable course, parking area, etc.). I added the stakes of the topographic survey, created the surface and then added the intervention limit. To that point on, the surface started having 3d errors. I tried to simplify the limit, but the errors kept going. Any suggestions? How to you usually faced this problems? Best regards, João Rodrigues 2017_03_02_ACESSO_MARINHA.vwx

    Pc vs Mac for VW?

    I started using Vw Landmark around 6 months with my pc with Windows 10. But from the begining I heart about the optimization of Vw for the Mac plataform. As I’m going throught increansingly complex projects, I would like to know your opinion: is there really a difference between plataforms or is it just “fan talk”? What is the “best suite for the Vw 2018? Thank you very much!!! ps: I tried to search the theme on the forum and didnt found any discussion.

    Site Model Alteration

    Thanks for the reply Eric. Just two questions on this procedure that you presented: Do you convert the imported 3d polys into some kind of smart object? How do you the referred operation to assign those 3d polys to site modifiers (layer control)? Thank you very much for helping!!

    Site Model Alteration

    Not sure if I'm doing it correctly, but the change in the source data doesn't appear as a proposal in the site model, but changes the existing situation. Can I do something different to bring 3d polys (the redrawn contours) as site modifiers inside an existing site model?

    Site Model Alteration

    Good night guys, I'm working a new project over a topographic survey and I want to change it based on a completely new design for its contours. As I'm working with another cad software, what I was thinking to do was to edit the site model by double-clicking on it, editing the "Proposed Site Model Contours" and pasting the imported 3D polys with elevation. Unfortunately, this way isn't working. Can you give me any advice on the best way to do this change: just create a new site model based on the new design of the contours (is there a way to "merge" site models?), edit the contours individually? I'm open to suggestions. Best regards!!!
