  1. I was working from a file saved in the cloud and it has crashed twice so I've saved to the desktop and working from there - is it not recommended to work from a file on the cloud or is this just a glitch today?
  2. Ps. Clip cube is something I'll have a look at next as not sure I've used this yet...!
  3. Thank you Gadzooks and David for your helpful responses. Gadzooks, is the term 'class action' a thing? I'm still learning a few things and have been teaching myself so there could be some gaps in my Vectorworks knowledge. David S, I can never seem to get the camera to take the perfect shot without backing out of the room and seeing the backs of walls, which is how I ended up putting the wall which was in the way on a different design layer, only to be turned on in other viewports. I like your new Ikea mirror though ūüėä understand you have to have lights on to get a reflection? But still if there's nothing to reflect it won't look so mirror like.... Thanks again both
  4. So I'm drawing a small bathroom and to get a good perspective of 2 walls and floor I've removed the wall to the left. BUT there is a mirror on one of the walls and it would, inreality reflect the wall opposite which I have removed - then you would see a heated towel rail on the removed wall and the texture of that wall. It would be a great way to show the full design. But of course because I had to remove that wall to be able to see into the room, these features are not there. I was thinking that it would be brilliant if you could select in the mirror texture which classes should be turned on - so I could put wall and towel rail on classes which are turned off in the main view but not in the mirror. Does anyone know if there is already a way to do this, or has anyone had a similar issue which they have overcome in another way? Thanks in advance for all responses!

    Full Wall Mirror Texture

    I know this is an old discussion, but wanted to add a request for something which would be amazing! Or maybe there is a way to do this already which I don't know, which would be even more amazing! So I'm drawing a small bathroom and to get a good perspective of 2 walls and floor I've removed the wall to the left. BUT there is a mirror on one of the walls and it would, inreality reflect the wall opposite which I have removed - then you would see a heated towel rail on the removed wall and the texture of that wall.

    Best Laptop for full Renderworks capability

    Thank you JimW this is incredibly helpful!
  7. Hi, I currently own a Dell XPS 9560 (about 4or5 years old) and it's been really good for 2D work on Vectorworks but gets very slow after importing 3D Sketchup files, so slow it's really unworkable. I saw a post on here suggesting waiting for i9chips is best and found that Dell are bringing out a new XPS with i9core in the next couple of weeks. But also noticed on the same thread that someone said XPS is underpowered. I'm not particularly tech-minded so I'm not sure, does this mean the new version will still struggle with 3D & Sketchup imports to VWX? Am I better off getting a Macbook Pro, as most Vectorworks users still seem to use Macs, but it also seems PCs are better 'gaming' computers which lend themselves to rendering capabilities much better. I must admit I'm confused! Also the graphics card recommendation from Vectorworks is that it should be less than 3 years' old. Is there any way of upgrading the laptop I currently own? Thanks in advance for any advice.
