    Revit Import Not Working

    Hi @Sky, Thank you for the files, this will help us to improve Revit Import. Actually there are sheet layers with 2D View drawings as you can see from the attached images: Yes, we have some problem with importing 3D views together with 2D views which we are currently investigating, but as you write using 3D Model View is working - you can use this too. If you choose to use "Current file" as Destination, yes there would be nothing drawn on the design layer, but the imported objects are added as separate resources (textures, symbol definitions and so on): if you choose "New files in folder" as Destination, for every revit file you will have .vwx file in the selected folder. Each .vwx file contains resources (textures, symbol definitions, and so on), and objects are created in the drawing. See the image of the created .vwx files: I'm attaching a quick reference for using Import Revit (Batch): Please, let me know if you have questions? Best regards, Vasko

    Trying to convert RTE revit library files

    Hi @Samuel Derenboim, If you change file extension from .rte to .rvt Vectorworks will import the file :-). Best regards, Vasko

    Export to DWG from VW

    Hi @VW_Harry, I used Default settings on DWG Export and the result is perfect. I'm using Vectorworks 2019 SP4 (build 490894). I'm attaching the result DWG file plus some screenshots. With yours DWG Export options I get perfest result too.(see cad_test_LayersAsLayers.dwg) Best regards, Vasko cad_test.dwg cad_test_LayersAsLayers.dwg Export Options: DWG Result opened in AutoCAD:

    Wall 'jumps' when exporting 3D to dwg/dxf

    Hi @markymarc, The exported DWG file is Ok. I opened it in AutoCAD and it looks Ok. It appears that this is a Mac only(on Windows it works Ok) drawing issue that I'll report to the guys that work on drawing. You can avoid the issue by saving as .vwx the imported file immediately after the end of DWG import process (do not change view) and close the saved file. Than open it and everything will look as expected. Best regards, Vasko

    Revit Import

    Revit import is not a standard import; it is more like IFC import. The goal is to have parametric object at the end, which is currently limited by the present ODA Platform implementation. We add to the created on import Revit Entities all available parameters and also the necessary IFC records so that entity could be properly exported to IFC. But if you wish, you could ungroup the entities. This issue is something that we are currently working on. This again is caused by ODA library limitations.

    Can't export a a useful dwg file from Landmark

    Hi Rodolfo, I made some more tests and it appears that AutoCAD is having problems working with Gradient fills. I found that layer Vegetacion is the one that causes the problem for AutoCAD. You can use this options to avoid the issue: Best regards, Vasko

    Can't export a a useful dwg file from Landmark

    Hi Rodolfo, Just uncheck (set to OFF) "Export Images and Image Files" setting from DWG Export Options dialog and the exported dwg file will be much more workable in AutoCAD. Best regards, Vasko

    Hi @Amorphous, Could you please send to me the .vwx file and a screenshot of the settings you used for DWG Export, so that we can find the best settings for the result that you want to achieve. Best regards, Vasko

    LAPTOP

    I know it's not the best solution, but for small price you can try it and you if you do not use this laptop for rendering, but for small projects with no texture rendering...

    LAPTOP

    Hi @Lisar , Think about upgrade of the memory of your laptop to 16 GB and replace the 750GB HDD with 1 TB(or 500GB) SSD and you can keep using it. Best regards, Vasko
