    Data Visualization - mystery pen override

    attached below @Marissa Farrell WallTest.vwx
  2. Playing around with Data Visualization a bit more, for some reason even with boxes unchecked it appears to be overriding pen colors? The two walls shown should have identical pens. One has a 2-HR rating w/ visualisation shown. I have not checked boxes for pen over-rides yet theyve changed from red to black? thanks

    Data VIZ video = wait, how to what?

    @SMannVW, Thanks so much for that. The video I took my screenshot from showed pull-downs for fire & acoustic ratings. Do you know how to achieve that?
  4. Well, this video showed me something I've been dying to do - how to properly tag walls for fire & acoustics!? How oh how pray tell does one specify Fire Rating and STC for walls, doors etc? This is SUPER useful to be so buried. Is there a tutorial for all this I've missed someplace? Thanks
  5. It would be great to specify other than Story Above for stairs. Useful for split level buildings, or stairs from random grade elevations up to story heights.
  6. Thanks - I wound up doing Method 1. Still a lot of cleanup, but it got it done.
  7. Not the only building on the site ūüôā
  8. Hey folks, I'm trying to push a building around to fit within the height envelope on a sloping lot. Select-all and Move somehow fails. It will only move the roof, and delete a few 1st story walls. Not at all the behaviour one would expect. Any suggestions? PS, ive tried grouping and that does other weird stuff...

    Projected copy of Site?

    Folks, Curious what your thoughts are re: matching the diagram below (from my zoning code). I've got the site modeled - is there a reasonable way to make an offset of the grade surface w/out duplicating info?

    Randomly odd fascia

    On an otherwise good roof, this one bit of fascia shows 4.5' below everywhere else. Any thoughts?

    Project Sharing and Dropbox

    We had the same issue, there is a simple workaround (at least with Dropbox). The problem is that VW seems to reference the full file path (unlike ACAD). Dropbox always wants to put the shared folders in your (personal) user folder. That puts your share as part of the path name & that's what breaks the references on the other computers. We've put all our Dropbox folders in the /Shared user folder (a mac default folder) instead. Its identical across all our machines. No reference issues anymore. /Computer/Users/Shared/Dropbox

    Cant keep Workgroup on VW Cloud?

    Intersting, I'll certainly look into it on this end. Thanks!
  15. In the interests of office awesomeness we're trying to keep our VW Workgroup on the VW Cloud (so everyone shares it). It seems that the folders with - in the name do not sync. These folder names are default from VW. This is a problem.
