  1. Hi dear community,


    With the attached drawing I can't seem to create a report on symbolname. I do what I usually do and add symbolname and count to the fields and then press okay. But I don't get a count with this one, and I fail to see why. Any ideas ???


    thanks already,



  2. Hi Hans Olav,


    thanks for the reply. So it's not possible to put the two different view options in a symbol? Because the build plans are also in 3D (top just 2D topview). I've attached a piece of truss in the colour I want it. So with data visibilities you could change how it looks in a viewport, that might be an option then. Is that new for 2020, or is it also possible in 2019?

  3. Hi everyone,


    I'm struggling to do something that I'm not sure is possible. I'm assigning a colour in the attributes of a symbol to help identify it's type for building drawing purpose. But I would also like to use those symbols in a presentation with, let's say, an aluminium texture, not showing the colour peviously selected. Is it possible to have this in the symbol's values, so I can have it look different in for instance openGL en final quality renderworks??


    thanks for any help,



  4. Hi,


    I'm trying to export a sheet layer to pdf, but the pdf I get from that makes some symbols a blurry grey. I've tried a higher dpi number, in both the export as the sheet layer, that did not solve it. I'm out of ideas and hoping someone sees what I'm overlooking.


    thanks a lot,





  5. I'm trying to insert a 3D tapped hole in metric. I've read the instructions from vectorworks, but can only find a 2D imperial tapped hole. Do I need to update something, or am I doing it all wrong?

  6. Hi everyone,


    hopefully an easy question this time. I've made a "net" from multiple cylinders and turned that into a symbol for a specific need. But now I want to use that net in various sizes. Is there a way to change the dimensions of this symbol but keep the grid size (the individual squares) the same size? In other words, change the outside measurements, but keep the interior the same size.


    thanks a lot for helping,

  7. I have the rotated link already, but obviously that one also comes without snap points. Are you saying to make the loci before extruding? Because I know I can put loci on it to create snap points, but it's kind of hard to put them on the exact spot without any snap points.

  8. Hi everyone, I made a chain link by composing two arcs and two straight 3d poly lines. And then I extruded alond path to give a diameter. But the result appears not to have any snap points. Am I doing it wrong/unhandy, or is there a way to create or find snap points so I can link several chain links??

  9. extrude along path sounds promising, I have some issues though. I draw the poly line, then I draw the circle, but I can't select extrude along path. I've never used this, so I'm probably doing something simple wrong.

  10. basically what I'm looking for is to select two points, and that it then draws my cylinder from the first to the second point. Or draw a cylinder (I know the height), and then have the top center and the bottom center go to my points of choice.
