  1. Hi all, I was wondering if it's just me and my computer that has huge issues with the Railing/Fence tool performance, so when i want to create a new railing/fence i set up all the required settings without any issues, but when i get to the classes designation it goes so slow to change anything that it seems vectorworks just crashed. Another thing is i have a class (ex: Material-Aluminium) with the texture and all the correct settings and when i change let's say the 3D Post class to that and in the texture setting i go to by Class, usually doesn't pick up the texture in the class and i have to set it up manually and when i press the TEXTURE option, the VW goes super slow and takes ages to show the menu to choose the texture i want. Is there anything i can do to fix this? I'm using VW 2020 (latest update) Ryzen 7 2700x with a nvidia 1060 6gb ram and 32gb memory ram. EDIT: i've posted here and deleted the one in troubleshooting as i might have wrongly categorized it.

  3. @Boh That was SPOT ON! Thanks for the help! It seems some of the hatches are page and others world based, with the world based ones when i change the scale of the viewport the hatch remains the same, but when they're page base it goes completely of course. So again many thanks for the help!
  4. Hi all, I would like to know if there is another way of fixing and using the hatch scale. When i draw a rectangle and i assign a hatch with a specific pattern (squares for example) in the design layer, when i create a viewport and assign a specific scale that pattern goes completely off course and doesn't show with the same effect as it does on the design layer. What i have been doing is changing the scale of the pattern in the hatch properties figure by figure until i find the one that approximately matches what i'm looking for, but i think there must be a better way of doing this, i hope! Anyone knows?
  5. @cberg Many thanks for this, i wasn't even thinking that the FIT TO OBJECTS command would work that properly in the Curtain Wall... @bcd Thanks for the input, although i was looking for something more like Cberg demonstrated!
  6. Hi all, How can you make the top of the curtain wall arched as if it was a window, but in my case the whole wall is a curtain wall and has a door in the middle but i wanted to have the top of it as an arch, i can't seem to find the way of doing it as a curtain wall... The only way i'm thinking on doing this is by using the 3D modeling and create it as a symbol, but then i would not be able to edit the door properties and so on, would i ??
  7. @Jim S. I've created that exact same window to a house design and i've used the window tool, (custom design) and then on the second floor i've added a door opening (opening only) to create the space in the wall. WIth the custom tool you can select which panels you want to be openable don't forget is to make sure the width and the height are correct for the whole window before you go into custom so then you can design the panels with 3 columns and 4 rows (example) and then make sure you have the right sizes for the panels and design through there.
  8. @bcd Thanks for the reply, that might be useful for some 3D visualization indeed but the 2D side has it been forgotten? For walls is there some hints you might know ?
  9. Hi all, I cannot find the way to edit the viewing Level Details (if you can call it like that) for certain symbols, like Doors, windows and wall styles, i know when you're creating a symbol you can choose what to see in LOW, MEDIUM and HIGH detail that you can then setup in the viewport but on 2020 i cannot find that option for windows doors and walls, (on how to edit the detail level not how to choose it in the viewport as you can change it easily on the OIP) I've attached the window tool example of what i'm addressing if i wasn't clear on the question. Window Tool preview you can see the differences and for the viewport example where i choose the detail level i want to show, the wall goes from a complete gray to detailed version, i wanted to change this let's say the low and medium settings for the wall i wanted it to be Gray and in the High setting i wanted to see the detailed version of the wall for example, how can you change this either for wall, door and window tool??
  10. @Pat Stanford Many thanks for that, i was adding it in the ADDITIONAL INFO and not in the FORMULA and it wasn't being recognized as a formula. Although I've changed it from /10.76 to *10.7639 as this is now giving me the right conversion as per the google conversion tool
  11. Hi all, How can i add dual dimensions sqm and sqft in the same space tag ?? Example attached - i wanted the area to show sqm and then where the "not specified" to show sqft I've found a very old post where it suggests to add a formula to calculate acres and i've tried to change it to calculate the sqft -- the suggested formula =#Gross Area#*.0.40468564 :: i've changed it to =#Net Area#*10.7639 (google converter 1sqm = 10.7639) When i do this instead of doing the calculation what it does is showing the Net area sqm value * 10.7639 instead of the calculation. Any ideas ? The dual dimensions system only shows on the linear dimensions and not on the space tool. Link to post -
  12. I've managed to fix it... Lesson learned... The light fixture had a "glass" covering that wasn't as a Glass texture so it wasn't allowing the light to go through the fixture, then the light was a bit too high in the ceiling also not allowing the light to come through... all fixed!
  13. Hi all, I'm trying to make a evening scene to show the lighting options to the client, but when i'm doing this i have the following difficulties, - OPENGL - Lights on the left work (with the option NO SHADOWS not selected, if i select it the lights turn off) - FINAL WORKS RENDER - The light on the right directed to the door, will light up and work just as intended and the settings on the OIP are the exact same as the other ones. Examples: Light.jpg - Final Renderworks Light 1 - OpenGL with NO Shadows Light 2 - OpenGL with WITH Shadows What am i doing wrong here any good settings i should be looking at in the RW settings, or OpenGL settings ? The objective is when i do the render all the lights work
  14. Hi all, I'm having similar issues with printing from Vectorworks but mine are i send the file from vectorworks and it seems vectorworks when sends it to the plotter shrinks the drawing. What am i doing wrong? Sheet screen shot is how it shows and how i've created the sheet to be, which are two A1's landscaped on top of each other. (as the plotter has a roll in it) What options should i choose or do to make this thing work as of now i only get prints like the photo and this is literally killing my head around.
  15. Hi all, Every time i try to use the roof tool with this shape it comes that the roof is too complex to be generated, i've tried doing this by converting the curves into straight lines but makes the roof top look funny and not having the same height, in practice this should be easier to build as it uses the same size joists in a circumference isn't the roof tool able to deal with this ? does anyone have a better idea on how to build this shape into a roof ?
