  1. I believe you are looking for what are now called "Schematic Views"
  2. Looking for a solution when in Top/Plan view. I would like to be able to have different 2D geometry for a fixture that is yoke down vs yoke or a batten that is horizontal vs vertical. Right now I do this with separate symbols for each 2D orientation. Obviously 3D is simple because I can just rotate the fixture. I was hoping to accomplish this using Low, Medium, and High Level of detail in the Component Edit dialog while editing a symbol. Just make each level of detail a different orientation. This idea works except the only place I can choose which detail to see is in Sheet Layers. I would like to be able to choose this in my Design Layer as well. Is that an option at all? I may be missing something. Open to other ideas if anybody has a nifty way of solving this. Thanks!
  3. Is there a way in my Criteria Formula to choose the array of rows that get returned? For instance if I have 100 rows of data and I want to make 4x different worksheets. WS1) 1-25 WS2) 26-50 WS3)51-75 WS4) 76-100 It would be a nice way to breakup long worksheets compared to placing them in viewports and cropping them. Thanks!
  4. I feel like I'm missing something easy. I am trying to create an object that when you run it, let's you select a symbol, and then inserts that symbol directly below my Marionette Wrapper. So far I can only figure out how to give it coordinates which will always be different. Is there a way to retrieve the Wrapper XY and give it an offset to insert the symbol? SelectorDIST.vwx
  5. Like Scott said, Design Layer Viewports, Plot and Model View, or the new VWX 2020 Schematic View are all ways to achieve this. Also in VWX 2020 I believe you can rotate any Hybrid Object right in a Design Layer. As for the lights appearing in OpenGL, VWX is not a visualizer. It's a CAD software for paperwork, schematics, and technical drawings. I would concur that Vision is currently not even comparable to other visualizers. Many people's workflow, including my own is VWX for drawing and then send it over to Cinema4D or GrandMA 3D for some quick OpenGL style renders.
  6. I think it's got potential. But once they are generate you can rotate them around much faster than DLVP's just because it's only 2D information. My biggest problem with it is the time it takes to generate...To generate (30' truss w/ 12x fixtures = 2-4 minutes) however that may just be my machine. But it's driving me nuts.
  7. Searched the forum but couldn't quite find the answer. I am using Data Tags to easily drop onto a rectangle and show the Width x Height of the rectangle. That is pretty easy with "#ΔX# x #ΔY#". However that uses the bounding box and when I rotate a rectangle it won't keep the WxH from the OIP. Is there any way to grab the OIP dimensions in Data Tags? I have tried "HHeight" and a few other suggestions from the forum but nothing seems to be working.
  8. Ah, guess I should have been able to figure that out. Thanks!
  9. I figured the 'TotalWeight' was in KG but even that number has the decimal in the wrong place. 500lbs = 226.796 KG However on the worksheet shows 226,796.185 KG. Any ideas on that?
  10. I am trying to get the total weight of a distributed load in a worksheet. It shows 500 lbs in my OIP but when I use: ='BrxDistributedWeight'.'TotalWeight' and ='BrxDistributedWeight'.'DistWeight' I get some odd figures that are not close to 500 lbs. Am I missing something? File attached. Thanks! Total Weight.vwx
  11. I had the same problem with the Scale Bar, and I recently discovered the Dimension Tape. Way more sleek looking,
  12. Looking forward to it Scott, thanks!
