  1. I wish that there was an option to make some objects that are hidden behind other objects to appear in rendered images even if the object it is behind is not transparent. See the attached image. PARTIAL FRAMING MODEL.pdf

    Cabinet and Countertop Scripts

    Could the "BeginFloor" command be replaced with a simple extrude? If you ungroup the floor, it becomes a floor and a rectangle. At this time the floor can be rendered by setting the correct attributes.

    Cabinet and Countertop Scripts

    Love the script but I do have a question. Do you know why the countertop does not have the correct texture in VW 2019

    Script Error

    I have attached a file with two scripts in progress. It is a script that I was developing to replace circles with hexagons. The first version doesn't work as expected. It creates the hexagons but they are 1/25.40157 sized and location from the origin. I modified the script to multiply the X,Y coordinates by 24.40157 and the size. This places the hexagons in their proper location and size. It seems that the script is converting the units to mm from inches. If I set the drawing units to mm the first script works Script Error.vwx

    Script Error

    This modification corrects the issue but it seems to me that if the points are read from HCenter as inches then they should be passed to RegularPolygon as inches. HCenter(h,Px,Py); RegularPolygon((Px*25.4),(Py*25.4),(9*25.4),6,1);

    Script Error

    Yes, I did try adding the unit to the script but that does not work either. The size and the location of the created polygon are still 1/25.4 scaled.

    VWX 2019 Significantly Slower

    Oh, how much joy it is to see that your file was backed up just before Vectorworks begins to not respond and you can just kill VectorWorks instead of waiting for the 20-30 minutes for it to come back to life.

    VWX 2019 Significantly Slower

    Not responding all of the time. I will not be sending Vectorworks any more money if they do not get this fixed soon.

    New Baseboard plugin from Andrea Facchinello

    Have these been tested with VW 2019?
  10. I have created a test file (attached). It seems to me that it is rather slow to update the viewport when all that is being shown is a 2d component of the symbol. Am I doing something wrong? Test.vwx

    VW 2018 slow start up time

    The 2018 version is just slow all around!! zooming in and out as well as rendering and rotating renderings. editing PIO's. etc.
  13. I wish that in addition to being able to turn viewport layers On/Off/Grey there was also an option to turn them "ON Dashed" or "Grey Dashed". I know I could do this if all my line types were attached to class options but this is not always feasible but it would be nice to make an entire viewport dashed lines.

    Anomaly: slow "save" on Window Server 2003

    Did you ever solve this issue, I have the same.

    FUNCTION SetDashStyleName

    Does anyone know how to use this (FUNCTION SetDashStyleName)function? I would like to make a vectorscript that can change a dash style of a selected object to a predetermined dash style by name.
  16. I would like a way to explode complex line types and also I would like a toggle option to be able to snap to objects in the complex line type.
  17. I wish there was a command to explode complex dash lines to a group.
  18. Anyone know why this script runs from the script Palette but not if I add it to the menu. When added to the menu it runs but nothing happens. PROCEDURE ClassStyle; PROCEDURE changedoors(h :HANDLE); BEGIN SETRFIELD(h, 'door', 'IDLabelClass', 'Marks'); ResetObject(h); END; BEGIN ForEachObject(changedoors, (INSYMBOL & INVIEWPORT & (PON='door'))); END; Run(ClassStyle);

    Copy point to point script

    Below is a script by Peter Vandewalle and it work fine as a command or from the script palette but if I run it as a tool the angle constraints don't kick in to the second object duplication. Does any one know why and how to fix it. I like this script vs the move by point tool because it makes a duplicate object at every point that I click. and I don't have to keep switching the move by point from retain objects to not retaining objects. Procedure CopyPt; {Peter Vandewalle, 14-03-2003} LABEL 99; VAR ObjHdle,NewHandle:HANDLE; xi,yi,xm,ym,xp,yp,X,Y:REAL; YesNo:BOOLEAN; SelNum:LONGINT; Procedure do_error(s:STRING;v:REAL); BEGIN AlrtDialog(Concat(S,' = ',Num2Str(5,V))); END; BEGIN Absolute; SelNum:=NumSObj(ActLayer); IF (SelNum=0) THEN BEGIN Message('Select object to copy:'); GetPt(X,Y); SetSelect(PickObject(X,Y)); END; Message('Click reference point'); GetPt(xi,yi); YesNo:=false; xp:=xi; yp:=yi; REPEAT Message('Click endpoint, double-click to exit'); GetPtl(xi,yi,xm,ym); IF ((xp=xm) AND (yp=ym)) THEN GOTO 99;{Check 4 double-click} Duplicate(xm-xp,ym-yp); xp:=xm; yp:=ym; UNTIL YesNo; 99:ClrMessage; DSelectAll; RedrawAll; ClrMessage; END; Run(CopyPt);
  20. Is there anyway to call the "Move by Points" command from a vector script and set the parameters.

    Convert 3D Poly to 2D poly in layer plane

    Thanks Kevin, your the man!
  22. I would like to know if there is a way to convert a 3d poly to a 2d poly in the layer plane so it moves in 3d the same way that a 3d poly does, not converted to the screen layer as a hidden line rendering of the 3d poly. If there is not a way I put out this challenge for some one to write a script that would do so.
  23. Ok correction the resetObject does not work the class does change but the objects are not reset.

    Move doors with Reshape tool

    I used to be able to move doors in walls parallel with the reshape tool in VW 2009 and now with 2012 I cannot. Is there a work around for this. See images
