    VW to Inventor

    Is there any way to import Inventor files into VW?

    Straight Truss Tool not working since SP1

    Doesn't work for me either. Any solutions yet?
  3. It seems to randomly break the symbols down completely. I am working with a complex 3d file and this is killing me!
  4. I have been using VW for 20 years (going back to MiniCAD) on a mac. With VW2017 designer, when I "convert copy to lines" on a group, it ungroups the original 3d objects. It converts all the symbols within the group and ungroups them also so that whatever I started with becomes a total mess. Help
  5. Is there any way to open a MiniCad 5 file (from 1995!) on a mac running VectorWorks 2008?

    12.5.1 Issue CRASH CRASH CRASH

    I am on a mac. Well, since I came in today (a day after the crashing) and have restarted my computer, it seems to be working now. Strange behavior!
  8. Well, I just upgraded to 12.5.1 and now I cannot do a 'convert to hidden lines' without crashing (the file worked fine before the upgrade)...bummer. I am now going to downgrade back to 12.5.

    Can a SAVED VIEW be copied?

    Copying RenderWorks cameras is definitely the way to go. Thank you both for your AWESOME advice --- very helpful.

    Can a SAVED VIEW be copied?

    Although I own RenderWorks, I have not actually used it in years....tried it when it first came out. Never really used though.

    Can a SAVED VIEW be copied?

    When I say 'copying views', I am specifically talking about 3d views.

    Can a SAVED VIEW be copied?

    I am laying out a trade show booth. My client manufactures helicopters. I have five different ones in this floor plan - they were originally 3ds models. In addition to the models and my structure, there is also electrical information, spatial dimensioning and a saved hidden line perspective view. This stuff all adds up. I am working on another job where I received IGES files from my client. The file for this job is around 130mb and totally unmanageable. I am in the process of re-drawing items and deleting as much as possible. I have it down to 80mb so far. I have been using VectorWorks for 10 years now and have often wondered about copying views from one document to another...thanks for your help anyway.

    Can a SAVED VIEW be copied?

    Unfortunately, my client makes tons of revisions and the file size is already around 80mb. Combining plans would make the file unmanageable. Usually, I start out by saving all the views I like in the document and then re-save different versions. Unfortunately, if I decide that I want a different view, I can't transfer that new view to the other revisions.
