    Joining a pillar to a roof face

    Hi, I've created a pillar (post) and would like to join it to the roof face. I've extruded a surface from the underside of the roof and have selected both the surface and the pillar and then used the section solids tool to 'break' the pillar at the newly created roof surface however I continue to get an error message saying the geometry i've chosen is incorrect....or something along those lines. Help?
  2. Hi, I've created a stair object and would like to generate a materials report to submit to my builder. Any advice on how to achieve this? Thanks, Stephanie

    Editing Symbol/Plug-in objects

    Ok, thanks for the info! I'll work with adding my own geometry to the fence after it's creation.

    Editing Symbol/Plug-in objects

    Yes, I added 3 additional lines to the symbol. Is there no way to convert the new version of the symbol back into a plug in? Thanks, Stephanie

    Editing Symbol/Plug-in objects

    Hi, I am designing a custom exterior deer fence. I've used the Railing/Fence tool to build the basic structure but am wanting to add additional guy wires and other details that aren't options in the railing/fence tool. To work around this, I've edited my design through the resource manager by editing the 3D component . After editing it, the new fence is no longer available as a Plug-in through the railing/fence tool. When I hover over the new fence in the resource browser it is still described as a Symbol/Plug-in, but when I filter to only display Plug-in items its no longer available. Also, when I right click and use click the 'Edit the Symbol Options' dialogue, I do not have the option to 'Convert to Plug-in Object' but am limited to 'Convert to Group' option. Is there a way to convert this symbol back to a Plug-in so I can use it to plot out my fence? Thanks! VW2019

    VW 2019 crashes when viewing worksheets

    I am also having an issue in switching from Sheet Layer to Design Layer....VW keeps crashing. This is a new problem and I'm up to date with my software.

    VW 2109 snapping not working

    Hi, I've upgraded to Mojave and am working in VW 2019 and have downloaded the most recent patch to address incompatibility issues and am still unable to snap to angles and enter pre designated dimensions for drawing rectangles, squares, lines, etc. Any thoughts on how to address this issue
  8. I am having the same issue. I cannot import a SketchUp file saved as any of the versions. The file sits directly on my desktop.
  9. A red 'X' is populating my Top/Plan view and is attached the hardscape area in my plan. How can I turn off the visibility for this?
  10. I am having issues with the resource manager palette whereas if I attempt to attach it to the side of my window it populates the entire space. When I attempt to grab the top bar to pull it off I default grabbing the project window and the resource manager palette become faded out and unmanageable. Feels like a bug. I've restarted VW but was required to save before I booted to not lose my work. The program now starts up with a dysfunctional resource manager palette stuck in the main window. Stephanie

    Hardscape rendering white in opengl

    What I ended up doing is changing the 3D Type from 'Slab' to 'None' and now I can see the pattern in both Top/Plan view and a rendered version. I have removed the sloping site due to it not being entirely necessary for this project and my lack of familiarity with the software. Thanks for the tips! Stephanie

    Hardscape rendering white in opengl

    Hi all, I am new to VW and navigating my way through a landscape plan. I have a site model, slightly sloping but level where the house is and where the hardscape elements will be. Question #1 I have drawn my hardscape with polylines and used the hardscape tool to create the pathways and patios surrounding the house. I have the harscape 3D type as pad modifier, top of slab with a 3" thickness. In top/plan the joint pattern tole (cambridge) and the main texture (stone limestone) are visible but when I spin to a ISO view and render to Open GL the hardscape turns to white. Question #2: in my sloping site I am attempting to indicate existing vegetation that begins at the bottom of the slope and ends at the foundation level of the house. I have placed a landscape area illustrating in top/plan as a green space and 3D plants in a rendered Open GL. The are located at a 0 Z axis. Is there any way to manipulate the 3D plants to shape against the slope? Currently I have them oversized so the plants closer to the house (top of the slope) are still visible. Thanks for any and all advice! Stephanie

    Vectorworks keeps crashing

    My issue has been remedied by saving the file as another name.

    Vectorworks keeps crashing

    Ok, thanks! I've actually tried save as to a different location and file name so we'll see if that helps. I'll contact them if the problem persists
