  1. Materials Default Worksheet.vwx Attaching a simple file of materials with area of '0'. Interestingly, when when I leave the material as the default material, it does report an area but not a volume. If I change the material, it then reports a volume but no area (Shown in attached file) Clarification on how these reports works would be appreciated.
  2. I looked at "Materials by landscape object" and "Materials Take-off -Spreadsheet" (which has a few typos in the table formatting BYW).
  3. I've found this a source of frustration as well. I often change the z elevation to something above 0 then back to 0 (or send to surface) and then the plant sits were it should. Unfortunately, it seems you have to do this one plant at a time as 'select all' hasn't seemed to work.
  4. Looking at some of the pre-formatted reports for materials. Wondering why the 'materialsurfacearea' reports as '0'? I can get the area by changing the function 'area' but would like to understand the difference between the two. 'materialvolume' works as expected. Thanks in advance.
  5. Cool animation Luis. Maybe you could do a “how-to” / tips and tricks video on that?
  6. Could someone tell me why my slope worksheet has no colors? I just dragged the preformatted 'Site Slope Analysis' worksheet onto my drawing and it doesn't seem to be working. Do I need to edit the worksheet (shown below). Can't seem to find any specifics on using this worksheet. Please direct me to them if they exist. Thanks in advance.
  7. Could someone tell me the best way to convert a google earth kml file to a shape file for vectorworks landmark? Also would appreciate any video tutorials that cover this topic. Thanks in advance.
  8. Asking a question here as it is related site modifiers. I have a model which has several site modifier conflicts according to the object info palette however no yellow error triangles are showing on the model. Why would this be? Is there a certain setting I need to have checked?
  9. Yes, my settings under components for the landscape areas where not set correctly. Still getting used to using that field. Thanks a bunch.
  10. Can someone tell me what all the red triangulation lines are on my texture beds in the attached image? How do I get rid of them? Thanks in advance.
  11. I am trying to export a 33,750KB VW2021 file to DXF/DWG. I am ending up with a 231KB dwg file and 4, 1kb GIMP patterns in a folder. I am using the default export settings and am getting no error messages but how can that be possible? Shouldn't the file size be much larger? Can anyone offer links/suggestions to help me get this export done properly? Thanks in advance.
  12. Attached is a simple file showing the issue Data Tag sample.vwx
  13. Just switched up to VW2021and suddenly my data tags for landscape areas no longer show the areas with the definition as defined above. ...#AREA#.#AREA## sq ft_0_1# Any idea what's changed? Was hoping the default area parameter would have been fixed so it didn't show areas with 7 decimals places.
  14. Thanks rDesign. I used the framing member tool instead of the symbol option to make my log and then followed the above. I was not able to use the window itself to subtract solids with for some reason. I had to make a cutout sized to the window and use that. Also was not able to group a stack of logs and use the subtract solids tool. Wondering if either of these things is a glitch in my system or a flaw in my steps. Either way, I did get something to work though more time consuming than I'd hoped for.
