  1. Thank you so much Tamsin, I have been having issues getting the internal origin to work correctly on my files, there must be a step I'm missing, I'll try your suggestion of the circle. Thanks again for the tips on the aligned hardscape!
  2. @Tamsin Slatter Hi Tamsin, I ran into this conversation about hardscape alignments. I'm having trouble with it as well. As you can see I have 2 slabs, and a ramp between them. I'm trying to align the "ramp" to both these slabs, but something seems to not be working, and when prompting the "edit surface modifiers", nothing is visible. Could you point out what I have wrong in this model? Thanks! IBC-CD-MP-P5.vwx
  3. Pat, thank you so much, we managed to rearrange information to present our drawing. We created a custom report and no longer have to show the specific property line segment records for each property line. Thanks anyways.
  4. I managed to create a custom report adding the NAME NUMBER SURFACE AREA fields, but now, I get no info on the segment records.
  5. I'm looking to get maybe individual reports for each property line I have, which would look something like this, these I generated with an AutoCAD plug-in that annotates segments for a specific polygon, and also shows the polygon name + area + segment distance + angle. Please let me know if something like this is possible in Vectorworks.
  6. Follow up: I have tried to place a "preformatted report" on property line segments, and then create a custom report adding the "Name, Number, Surface area" fields and append it to the existing report, but it adds it at the bottom of the report, not as columns to recognize the initial angle, distance that would belong to each property line next to it's name.
  7. Hi, I'm have a vwx file with 109 property lines, since it's an urban planning file. I would like to generate an individual segment report for each of the property lines I have. Could someone help me out with any tips on how to do this? If I select the "preformatted report" for property line segments, I can't tell which data belongs to which property line. All my property lines have a specific Name and Number, these would be the fields I would like to add to the report, to make the data more clear. Thanks!
  8. thank you all for your help, I´ll look into both options!
  9. Hello, I am startin to poke around the new Georeferencing tool in 2020. Overall I'm a newbie in Vectorworks, but have been importing dwg files for a while now, and just selecting the "This file contains georeferenced geometry" checkbox in the import options. Is this all I have to do? I'm still not very familiar with the "internal origin" and "geolocate" options. Is there a quick tutorial on this somewhere I could check? Thanks!!
  10. @Tony Kostreski Thanks! Just a follow up question, should I check the "This file contains georeferenced geometry" when importing my cad site survey, to make sure that when I Set User Origin to math the Georeferencing coordinate system it's correct?
  11. Hello! I have a big development project that has 18 apartment buildings. Since I'm working on a large urban scale, I have placed the buildings as massing models. But when I switch to open GL, weird things happen: 1. some buildings show drawn floors others don't 2. the lines from the buildings look weird and pixelated (edges) 3. same thing happens with my site model, it looks weird with some strange shadows (I don't have a heliodon object in my file) I checked the linotypes and attributes of the massing models, but can't seem to find the issue. Is there a way to smooth the lines in the drawing or something to correct this and make it look cleaner? Thanks!!
  12. @Boh Yeah, I tried that, but the line from the marker keeps crossing the marker, if I figure it out I'll let you know!
  13. @Boh Thanks for your help, I was able to edit the marker from the file in my application library, but now the leader line is on top of my detail text, and that doesn't seem to be able to be edited. Thanks a lot, hopefully someone will let us know if there's a way to change it!
  14. Hello! I'm trying to edit a detail callout marker, but I can't seem to edit it from the attributes panel, and I can't find the marker in my resource manager. Is there a way to edit it? I want to remove the white fill where the detail number is, and change de the line color as well. Thanks!
  15. Thanks Tamsin, but is there a way to use the 2D elevation images as image props, and create a symbol from that image prop to use as a 3D symbol? That's what I'm trying to do, I also tried to choose a 3d symbol directly for the plant but the ""the symbol does not have 3d geometry" message keeps popping up.
  16. Hello! I am having trouble loading a 3d symbol for a palm tree I have on my model. I chose an entourage plant symbol in 2d, got plant data for my schedule from the plant catalogo "cocos nucifera", and the data downloaded correctly. But when trying to copy symbol, an error message pops up saying "the symbol does not have 3d geometry". Can anyone help and point out what I'm missing or what I'm not doing correctly? I'm attaching screenshots of the steps I'm doing. Thanks!!!
  17. @Boh THANK YOU! this sounds very helpful as well! I´ll work with both and see which one better works for us! thanks!
  18. @Tamsin Slatter THANK YOU! Good thing I asked before setting all of my dimensions!
  19. Hello, newbie at Vectorworks and still transitioning from Autocad. I have a street plan drawn on my design layers, and I just created a new sheet layer to print my drawings. This is my plan on design layer: But I have issues with text sizes and dimension sizes. On my design layer I work on a 1:1 scale, so I have to set my text size to almost 2,000 points in order to see them. Is there a way to change this and make it more efficient? Also on my sheet I set my drawing at 1:500 for it to fit on the page, and I can't see my texts or dimensions. Is there something I need to set somewhere to be able to see dimensions? That red line that crosses my street section are the dimensions but I can't see anything. Thank you.
  20. Hello, still new to Vectorworks, and trying to create a SITE MODEL SLOPE ANALYSIS REPORT from the 3d grid colored slopes. I can't seem to get the area for each slope range. I managed to create on from the 2d colored slopes but I think its not grid based, and I get weird areas. How can I get a report like this one, but based on the 3d grid colored slopes? Or what is it that this preformatted report is counting in the "projected area" and why am I getting such big amounts of square meters? This is the site I want a report on. I have the colored slope grid, but how can I add the area depending on the color?
  21. @Andy Broomell thanks! It does remove that white halo that trees usually have!
  22. Ok, so I made the image prop in another file and it worked, then I copied it to my model file, with no problems. I guess my model file must have some sort of bug or something. Thanks anyways!
  23. @Jim Wilson yes, they also show up when rendered, I was able to do one or two tree image props, but suddenly the frame started showing up
