I am a new user with the 2017 student version of Vectorworks. I went through the getting started and several other Youtube videos and my startup has been pretty fast. I never expected to get this far so fast. I am, however, running into an issue. I am working on a retail space that is composed of several parts that need to be detailed individually. I started by modeling the entire display in 3d and then made viewports of the individual components and placed them on sheet layers.
I have a design layer that contains the entire modeled space in 3d. I have a sheet layer for the viewport of the floor plan from the model, and I have sheet layers that contain viewports of the individual cabinets. I created a top, front and side viewport drawings using three different viewports. When I add the dimensions I get ALL the dimensions of the whole space. I worked around this by making individual classes for each cabinets dimensions, but when I add the cabinet's dimension class, I still get all the dimensions for that cabinet and not just the ones for the view I am working on.
Am I doing this wrong? It seems there must be an easier way.
