  1. Hey, Yea not CAD files. For example its a set drawing that has been made which I want to get into vision. Im pretty sure its made in Rhino. Would IFC or DWG be better than OBJ and 3DS? I might see if I can get it either of those and try them. 🙂
  2. Hey Everyone, Just wondering what everyones preferred file format for importing Complex 3D files into Vectorworks is. I have tired 3DS and OBJ but with both Vectorworks seems to struggle with a bit. My Machine is AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT 64gb RAM 1gb Samsung SSD 970 EVO GeForce RTX 2080TI The main slow part is importing. Takes hours and when I check the performance of what the PC is doing nothing is stressing out so that makes me think that Vectorworks its self is struggling with it. Thanks for the help 🙂
  3. Thanks, I will have a look at what you have done and learn somethings 🙂
  4. Here You go, Just thinking do I need to put a 3d Loci for the snapbag? s60 Tilt.vwx
  5. Hey Peeps, I have a Skypanel s60 fixture and I have made a Snapbag accessory which attaches to the front of the light. It attaches fine and everything but when I try to focus it the centre point from where it tilts changes and the body comes off the yoke as it tilts. When I delete the sandbag it goes back to normal. Is there anyway to fix this? Im using VW2021. Thanks in advanced 🙂 Jonny
  6. Hey Peeps, Just wondering if someone could help me im trying to change the viewing angle of the basic camera in Vectorworks. Not trying to change the render works camera just the normal Front/left view camera. Cant for the life of me find any settings that would change it anyway. Keep safe Jonny 🙂
  7. Hey Everyone, Just wondering if someone could help me. I have made some soft boxes which I have turned into hanging positions so I can attach lights to the inside of them. Im wanting to be able to include these boxes into the Instrument summary so people don't have to count how many are on the plan. When I try to add these to the summary they are blue and I just get a 0 in the count. Is there anyway to make this work? Thanks Jonny 🙂
  8. Hello, Just jumping in on this. Im using the insert straight truss tool and then making it a flat truss (Ladder Truss as I call it) I then adjust the roll so the truss is hanging to the two chords are hanging above and below from each other. Is there a way to then make the 2d symbol look the same, so it just looks like a single pipe? It seems to always want to show itself sitting flat with the chords to the left and right of each other. Im using 2020, Thanks 🙂 Jonny
  9. SP5 won't install using my Serial number.. is it possible it isn't released in my location (New Zealand). Could explain why it doesn't come up saying there is an update available when it does its update check?
  10. Hey I am running SP4.. Is there SP5? When it checks for updates its saying there are no more updates. I haven't update to 2019 yet.. so want to keep using 2018 for a while.
  11. Hello, So have del the user folder and restarted Vectorworks and the freezing still happens. Vectorworks doesn't seem to crash as such but goes extremely slow and have the rainbow spinning wheel of death when in Vectorworks (laptop still runs fine) Once you have typed something it takes roughly between 30/60 sec per character typed and then once it has completed what you have typed it continues to lag and be unresponsive but doesn't crash to the point that Vectorworks closes. Have sat waiting for about 5min for it to stop lagging and still nothing so forced to use force quit to get out of the program. Once done that have gone back to the user folder but there is no error log as I'm guessing since I used force quit to exit it never made a log. reload Vectorworks and it runs fine until trying to put text in and then it all just repeats its self. Thanks Jonny
  12. Hello, The same this is happening to me. I'm running Mac OS 10.14. Where is the user folder located?
