  1. We really need a webinar concerning the new site modifiers. The changes are significant and we find some errors/bugs on it. On our studio, we paused the migration for the 2023 for the time being.
  2. Hi, We've been (trying) to use the new site modifiers from VW 2023. It's a work in progress... It's a new approach, it takes time. In this process, we think that we are facing a bug/error regarding the site modifier transversal profiles. When we add it, it just goes a small portion of the path profile. If someone can take a look at the file attached and verify if there is some error from our part (site model creation, site modifier etc) or if we in fact have a bug, we would be thankful. Regards, SITE_MODIFIER_TRANSVERSE_PROFILE.vwx
  3. "Win" some time with Land Kit and its different parts (plants, pavements and earthworks....
  4. About this matter, I would say: Revit + Plugin: $2,675 + the plugin (at least one...), every year... The cost is substantial. Revit is the standard but Autodesk doesn't look at Landscape Architecture at all and having to use plugins is a heavy cost to support altogether. Rhino: I see something here, the parametric design is much stronger with Grasshopper than Marionette... Vectorworks should look carefully to this or it can loose marker. Blender: No experience with the software.
  5. Really hoping to get improvements for the site model / site modifiers / grades. That would be a real update.
  6. I know it's a lot to ask... But would you be willing to share the file from the image that your shared? Really interesting to see how you assembled those objects. Hoping to count with your good will!!
  7. Hi, good morning, A little help: I'm preparing a worksheet of Landscape Areas: Can we "hide" the zeros (with a pace or "---"? I tried some If/Then functions, but it isn't (definitely) my area.... Can anyone give a help? Attached the file with an example and the worksheet. Thanks!! LANDSCAPE_AREA_WORKSHEET.vwx
  8. Hi Guys, Quick question: how can we dim an arc in a regular poly without the need of drawing over the poly the arc/circles? Send and example file of a shape that I want to dim. Thanks, JR FORUM_DIM_QUESTION.vwx
  9. Can you make a printscreen of the DWG export window with the setup that you use? I always strugle with this procedure. Thanks and regards,
  10. If it isn't too much to ask, What is the software that you use to do it? :)
  11. I identified that approach in the initial post. For free-form modeling is fine, but you loose some precision...
  12. That's precisely it!! What a job!! Congrats. Regarding the Site Modifiers / Grades, as they are now, Version 2021, they are redundant... The difference is that grades only allow lines, working as a network, and Site Modifiers can include curves or complex polylines but work as isolated elements. The creation of a single tool that can receive different shapes and working as a network would be the perfect. In the roadmap the talk about improvements in this area in the 2022 version, but lets wait and see...
  13. Thanks Tony, To evolve in the 3d / BIM / parametric design, we need use the best feature from each software. And the more versatile Vectorworks becomes to receive these "inputs", the more important it becomes at the end of the day (as the main software in the work pipeline). Thanks for your continuous support. JR
  14. Hi Guys, Quick update: doing everything in Rhino, I can import evertything correctly to Vectoworks. Within VW, I wasn't able to deal with it.
  15. Long story short, this is a parametric element done with Grasshopper. What I can do is try different solutions with the import / export from rhino. For example, try to convert the objects in a mesh in rhino and see if vectorworks recognize them... I'll make some tries and post the results here. Thanks!!!
  16. This is my problem: I just made a small sample in the file. In the project, the fence has thousands of geometries. Converting individually all of them is a nightmare. Is there a way to make a "bulk conversion"?
  17. Understood your idea and I got to the same point that I had with the mesh object: individually it works; in a group of objects, in assumes the mid point of the "group" and it doesn't get an individual behavior:
  18. With the Symbol, I'm able to adjust the Z, but that value doesn't add up with the Site Model. The Mesh solution works individually: when I do to all the objects, at the same time, it creates an unique Mesh and loses the possibility of an individual adjustment. Any other workaround?
  19. Hi Guys, Question (with file showing the problem): I have a set of CSG Solids objects and I want to simply "Send to Surface". But the command just doesn't work... Anyone can help out? Thanks!! DOUBT.vwx
  20. Try using a site modifier inside of the "holes", not forgetting to include a grade limit to the site model. Give it a try
  21. I've been thinking about tihs matter. Until the last version, I used Hardscapes as a Texture Modifier but with VW 2021, I really think that the Landscape Area ends up being the best tool to get pavements with thickness... I send an example file. I usually like to work my Site Models with Site Modifiers and then get my hardscapes. With that pipeline, the new Landcape Area allows works the different layers and then adapt to the site model, without parallel modelling. Am I missing some point? TEST.vwx
