    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!!

    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!!!

    Crash Edit Site Model

    Hello guys, Just starting to use VW Landmark 2018 with SP1 (PC Windows 10). Every time I edit the contours for the proposed site model (double-click in the site model - "Proposed Site Model Contours") I make the alterations and, when I exit the yellow window, VW just crashes, no error log, it goes straight for the Windows Error window. Same applies even if I don't do any alterations to the model. Anyone with the same error? Suggestions about what to do? Thanks, João Rodrigues
