    45 degree isometric

    @jeff prince You completely right. Maybe the term I am using is wrong. Yes it is the military oblique I am after @zoomer Thats so true that this projection looks awful practically. But I suppose the educational courses go for 90/45/45 look because it is easiest to draw by hand and the idea is to teach how to go about drawing these projections by hand. So, have you nailed this projection in VW (i mean 90/45/45)? How do you go about it? I have tried my best and looks quite close but still not perfect. Thanks both
  2. Hi, Till sometime VW plant database was working fine, but suddenly it has stopped updating plant records and showing an error. Screenshot attached. How can I resolve the issue? Thanks for helping
  3. @Dave Donley so, for eg if you zoom the edge of the wall on sheet layer, Wireframe shows crisp black edges but openGL is showing blurred gray edges. Pls find file attached. Thanks for helping open gl edges.vwx

    45 degree isometric

    @jeff prince basically I need scaled orthogonal drawing that has ground line of wall & floor @ 90 degrees and ground line of floor and wall height @ 45 degrees. So for eg in the file lets say red is the wall & green is the ground. I have tried to make Wall floor line and floor ground line as 90 degree, but the the angle betweeen wall ht & floor line is almost 70 degree. axo 45.vwx
  5. Hi, I am trying to show part of drawing on sheet layer in wireframe rendering appearence by clip cube, openGL rendering (without textures & colours), But by doing so the line edges are turning gray. It is usually black for openGL without clip cube. Is there any way to change this ? Thanks
  6. Hi, Is there a way to make 45 degree axonometric projection of a drawing? Predefined right & left isometric drawings are 120 degree. Thanks

    Data tag

    Hi, I created a custom data tag that mainly had fields with dynamic text. I finished all my work and had about 20 such data tags with different dynamic text. When I reopened the file, all the dynamic text has disappeared and just the original data tag layout is left with no dynamic text. Such a waste of time
  8. As in the clip cube view disappears in hidden rendering on a sheet layer
  9. Even hidden rendering doesn't get supported in sheet layer.
  10. Hi, I am trying to do wireframe rendering on a sheet layer for a viewport created by clipped cube design layer. But as soon as I apply wireframe rendering on viewport, I loos the clip cube view. Is there any way around this? Basically I want to create a scaled elevation in Vectorworks and then hand render it, so I dont want any colours on the view, not even grays like you get in B&W rendering or Open GL options of omitting colour. Thanks

    Viewport scaling

    @Art V So, is there a way to show real world distances ruler on sheet layer? Thanks

    Viewport scaling

    Hi, I have created a cube on design layer. Now suppose I zoom on that cube and create viewport of this view on a sheet layer, although the scale of design & sheet layer is same, the drawing on design layer & sheet layer has different dimensions. Why is this happening and how can I correct it? Also the ruler value on design layer & sheet layer shows different numbers. Whay does that happen? Thanks test.vwx
  14. @Art V thanks, that works.
  15. Hi, I created a custom title block border in design layer and saved it as a plug-in object. Now I am trying to use this TBB on the sheet layers, but the layout and dimension of TBB goes completely haywire on sheet layers. Cant understand whats happening, although dimension of design layer & sheet layer is same. Also, the ruler under tool dialogue box in design layer is showing different then sheet layer's. Dont know why.. Thanks for help.
