    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...

    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

    Exporting to DWG/DXF

    Hi Justin, I used VW2018 Fundamentals to export to DWG your posted file and there were no problems. I used these settings: I attached the result of export in a zip, so that you can use it if you wish. 757 STATUTORY DRAWINGS 2-dwg.zip Best regards, Vasko
  4. Hi Sam, As Tamsin said this was made on purpose, because of Saved Sets. But you can use "<<" button as on the attached image to clear the publish list. Best regards, Vasko

    Import Revit File - Version Not supported

    Hi @ptoner , Thanks for sending me your file! It is saved with 2D active view (Sheet) which causes problems to Revit Import sometimes. The best approach for Revit Import is to save Revit file in Default 3D View ( for example: {3D} View ) and to use default import options. If you want, I can save and send it back to you, your file in 3D View, so that you can use it. And we will add more information to our error messages. Best Regards, Vasko

    Import Revit File - Version Not supported

    Hi John Meunier, The files that you try to import in Vectorworks are Revit version 2010, but Vectorworks Revit Import supports files created in versions 2011 through 2018. When I opened these files in Revit 2018 I get this message: I converted all files from the zip so that you can use them in Vectorworks. 3d_MTR_Column_2018.zip Best Regards, Vasko
  10. Yes, you always will get folders for DWGs on Publish, because The option "Create Folder for Each File Type" creates or removes file type folder such as DWG_DXF, PDF, DWF, Image. Folders for the documents are not controlled by this option. Best Regards, Vasil
  11. On Export to DWG (File->Export->Export DXF/DWG...) or on Publish to DWG ?
  12. Plus if you uncheck "Export Complex Line Types as Blocks" you will create .shx files for the line types which will require creating folder. This option must be set to On if you do not want folders on Export DWG (not Publish - Publish explanation is above). Please, look at the image attached by Bertf.
  13. Hi Christiaan, On export or Publish to DWGs Vectorworks creates folders for each DWG file, because except the DWGs Vectorworks also creates accompanying files for hatches, referenced viewports, images, line types, plot styles. And in most cases these files have same names, so if there are no folders for each DWG, all these files will be overwritten and the result might not look good. That is why these folders are created. When DWG export options are set to (as on the image): not create referenced viewports in separate files; not create hatch pattern files; not create images and image files; not create real line types; not create plot style files, then automatically on export to DWG folders will not be created. On Publish you will have only a folder for the document (folder, named after the VW document name). This additional folder is used to separate the sheet layers or saved views with same names from the different documents (and as a matter of fact, in case sheet layer names are same for two published document, currently PDFs and Image files will be overwritten, which is not correct, so we should actually add a folder for the different documents for the PDFs and Image files too). Kind Regards Vasko
  14. As from Vectorworks 2018 SP2 Revit Import will import revit files version 2018. By now it imports revit files from version 2011 to 2017. Regards

    Vectorworks 2018 Revit Import

    Hi All, The best way to import revit files is when the file is saved in 3D View ( for example: {3D} View ) and then use default import options like on the image:. If it is impossible revit file to be saved in 3D View or we do not know for sure that it is saved in 3D View than it is best to use "3D Model View" option: When revit file is big (more than 100 MB ) the import may take several hours. If with these options you still have problem with importing the files please submit bugs. Best Regards
