    firstly, many thanks for this, great tool πŸ‘. I am new to Marionettes, very interesting. What I'm trying to do is use this for flooring layouts, mapping carpet tile finishes, follow this link to other forum chat . So adding different colours/finishes to the tiles, I edited one of the symbols as a test, added different colour fills in the attributes panel, it seems to only part work, or am I doing something wrong ? screenshot attached, tia
  1. @Boh had a play, really interesting, there's some clever people out there πŸ˜ƒ came across an issue, or maybe its me, not sure, I changed the colour/fill of one of the symbol patterns, it seems to only part work πŸ€”, any ideas ? (screenshot attached)
  2. @Boh thanks, I have no idea how to use a Marionette, is it difficult ?
  3. @Wes Gardner I wouldn't know where to start with Marionette definitions, 🀣, yes have played around a bit, definitely no quick solutions, suppose after you've done a few the workflow will quicken up a bit, cheers for chipping in πŸ‘
  4. @Kevin Allen yeh have been playing around, was hoping there was a nice efficient workflow that someone might know πŸ€” did find this browsing around, not for carpet or woven tiles, more ceramic/hard flooring tiles, interesting plugin https://www.mosa.com/en/services/online-tools/pattern-generator
  5. Working on some flooring options, carpet tiles, different colours, shapes etc etc, looking for the best way to approach this and an efficient workflow within VW to achieve this. Does anyone have any tips or advice ? tia (sample images attached)
  6. @sergiocdet hth New Folder With Items.zip
  7. @rDesign cheers, I'll take a look πŸ‘
  8. hello Forum, what is the best method to create interior glazed walls like what you see in modern office spaces, are there any tools in VW what will achieve these (VW 2020 Architect), images attached of the kind of thing I'm after, tia
  9. @Josh Loy Josh, I like the way you manage customer expectations 🀣, I look forward to the fix πŸ‘
  10. @Josh Loy hi Josh, I haven't got a clue what 32bit floats & 64bits floats are 🀣, but I believe you 😊 and hopefully you guys can find some kind of fix in the next SP release πŸ‘
  11. @Geoff McBeath hi Geoff, thanks for chipping in, how do you explain if I create a cube, of a reasonable size, 300 x 400 x 500mm , then zoom in and the tearing still happens ? Yet if you switch to an orthogonal perspective the problem goes away ? Either way hopefully the software engineers can fix πŸ‘
  12. @PeterYip I think i may have just solved the tilt & spin issue, in the configure window I just had the default Vectorworks set, I added VW 2020 from applications, and it now seems to work, still not as slick as in Rhino, but it works, cheers for the assistance πŸ‘
  13. @digitalcarbon this is how i want my Space Mouse to work, can't even get my 3D Connexion Space Mouse to work fully in VW
  14. @PeterYip no spin here, anything at the bottom of the list in green just doesn't work
  15. @PeterYip thanks for chipping in, think my settings are pretty much the same, i just can't get the tilt or spin to work, kind of defeats the object of having a space mouse, works beautiful in Rhino, its a dream to use, but in Vectorworks it sucks yet they have it as supported software πŸ™„πŸ€”
  16. Trying to set up my 3D Connexion wireless space mouse on my MBP using VW2020. The pan tools are fine, right, left, up down, zoom in/out are working ok. Its the spin & tilt when in a 3d perspective view that just don't work at all ?? Any ideas πŸ€” I have the same device set up to work fantastic in Rhino 3d Screenshot attached, its the Green icons which are just not working, tia
  17. @zoomer that's it, that's the problem, I always use 3d perspectives in 'normal', if I switch to 'orthagonal' the tearing doesn't happen when I zoom in. @JuanP is that a display bug ?
  18. @zoomer pretty sure my template tolerances are set to 1mm, I can draw a rectangle 1mm x 1mm, I have just created a cube, approx 300 x 400 x 400mm, the same happens if I zoom into that, it starts to tear away as you get really close , hopefully @JuanP may have discovered what the issue is
  19. @JuanP @zoomer yes I never checked the scale , here is another test file, the chair in this file is a stock chair from within the VW library, if I zoom into the feet or any other part of the model the geometry starts tearing away when you get very close ??πŸ€” Chair Zoom Test 2.vwx
  20. @EAlexander yeh still same issue πŸ€”, @JuanP I'm getting a similar issue when I use a chair from the stock VW library within the software, its not as bad, but still clips the 3d geometry if I zoom right in
  21. @JuanP yes same happens in 2019, Juan the object is a stool/chair in SketchUp format, imported into VW (files attached) Chair Test.vwx SWOOSH WIRE SKETCHUP.skp
  22. As described, when I'm zooming in my models are starting to disappear as if they are being cut by a clipping plane or clip cube, this has never happened before, running VW 2020 Architect on a 2014 MBP screenshot attached of issue, Open GL on design layer, any thoughts ? tia ,
  23. Simple numbered Data Tags Add the BOQ record to your objects or symbols, add your names, sizes finishes, place BOQ Table on your drawing, add Data Tags with or without leader, simple but effective way to create a BOM/BOQ with everything named, quantities etc, and easily identified on your drawing, hth someone πŸ‘ Data Tags BOM Worksheet.vwx
  24. @Tanner Shelton i would recommend having a play with Twinmotion, it's still free to download but that will change sometime in 2020 I guess, you will be surprised at what you can achieve, lengthy discussion can be found here- There are also some good Twinmotion tutorials on YouTube, here & here
