  1. There is an option to save viewport cache but it only saves viewports on sheets. Please add another option to save Design Layer Viewports Cache.
  2. Novabench. My 3090 FE performace gets a lower score than the 3080 TI on the fastest machine because the processor and chipset is faster on the faster machine, and the 3080 TI on the last machine score is the lowest of them all. Also, The only thing that takes a long time to process in Vectorworks is renderings which affects publishing speed as well. simply moving throught the drawing on any of the machines is rather quick but the redering and publishing time is twice as fast on the fastest machine as compared to the next and four times slower on the last machine. Vectorworks list the time to render after processing a render.
  3. Upgrade you CPU and Motherboard if you can. I have three computers with three different processors and two different graphic cards and the fastest CPU wins in all cases. The graphics card performance is greatly affected by the CPU performance. The three Windows 10 builds Fastest running Vectorworks Intel Core i9-12900KF Desktop Processor 16 (8P+8E) Cores up to 5.2 GHz Nvidia 3080 TI FE 32 Gigs Ram DDR4 2400 samsung pro 980 2tb Next Intel(R) Core i9-10900K Desktop Processor 10 Cores @ 3.70GHz Nvidia 3090 FE 64 Gigs Ram DDR4 2400 samsung pro 980 2tb Last Intel Core i7-7700K Quad-Core 4.2 GHz Nvidia 3080 TI FE 32 Gigs Ram DDR4 2400 samsung pro 980 2tb
  4. Please add the option to the Class-Based Objects to use a class prefix as a filter rather than the full name of the class. So instead of having to add every class that has 1_Exist, 2_Demo, 3_New as a prefix I could just define the prefix and it would add every prefixed class.
  5. Yes Yes this was my work around for the time being. LOL And no we don't use by class exclusively enough to use the class overrides to make this work.
  6. I need a way to overide all lineweights in a viewport to one lineweight. The veiwport advanced settings only let you scale lineweight which is good but there are many times that I would like to export a simple line drawing without different lineweights. Data Visualization should work great for this but it missing the switch to modify linewieghts if you retain original pen. If there was an option here I could retain linetypes but change lineweights.
  7. Everytime I approch 24 gigs of ram usage in Vectorworks it slows down. Is there a limit? I have 64 gigs of ram specifically for Vectorworks but I am unable to utilize it?
  8. Thought about it LOL! I don't think it would have many less lines of code.
  9. Awesome thanks. I added a few lines to the script to create the record in the file if it does not exist. Procedure MarkOverriddenDims; {May 27, 2022} {©2022 Patrick Stanford pat@coviana.com} {Licensed under the GNU Lesser General Public License} {No Warranty Expressed of Implied. Use at your own risk.} {Object Variable 6 indicates if a Dimension has the Show Dim Value} {Check box checked. If true it means that the dim value is showing} {False means it is not showing.} {This script runs looks at every Dim in the document and deletes a Record} {from those that have Show Dim Value checked and adds the Record} {to those that have it unchecked.} {If you don't ResetObject on each Dim, a Data Visualization} {will not see the correct Record attached/detached value.} Procedure Execute(Hd1:Handle); BEGIN If GetObjectVariableBoolean(Hd1,6) Then DelRecord(Hd1,'OverriddenDim') Else Record(Hd1,'OverriddenDim'); ResetObject(Hd1); End; BEGIN if GetObject('OverriddenDim') = NIL THEN; BEGIN NewField('OverriddenDim', 'Overridden', 'TRUE', 4, 0); END; ForEachObject(Execute, (INSYMBOL & INOBJECT & INVIEWPORT & (T=DIMENSION))); End; Run(MarkOverriddenDims);
  10. I think this would work best for my needs then I could either select items with the record or display them with Data Visualization. Which script command gives you the status of the Show Dim Value Checkbox?
  11. In Revit you can draw a 3D object with constraints. This model then becomes a dynamic model (symbol) that can change based on the parameters given in the OIP. Very similar to what we can do with PIO but much simpler to make and control.
  12. Thanks, I was able to resize the message dialog manualy but only after I commented out the "ClrMessage" command at the end. Made a quick script to fix, LOL. message('Move and Resize this dialog box as desired. Close when done.');
  13. Does anyone know how to change the size of a script message. I am unable to edit it while the script is running and it is taking up to much area. It covers a quarter of the drawing.
  14. Is you door in symbol or a group?
  15. When I add a filter color to a image texture and export to lumion the color does export. I would like to have the option to apply the filter color to the image when exporting to Lumion
  16. Hear is a texture I created for PEMB insulation. PEMB Inulation.vwx
  17. When I export the standard architect workspace there are 911 lines of menu commands. I added 128 additional lines and the last command I added does not work. I did delete some of the default commands.
  18. I too was using a script similar to this to hide classes. I’ve added so many Scripts that I’ve actually hit the limit of Scripts that a workspace can handle and I’ve had to pair down and delete Scripts from my workspace so they would all work. It would be nice if there wasn’t a limit to the workspace because I did like having the script rather than using the visibility tool.
  19. Matt: Neat idea. I downloaded the file and the wierd thing is that it works but when I open it in my Windows version of VW and the classes show they are overwritten but doesn't show how they are overwritten. See below. In the second window it should have the shadow catcher texture.
  20. Not the master but getting better all the time. Here are my scripts and workflow
  21. Would anyone have made a Marionette for a PEMB (Pre-Engineered Metal Building) Bent. I have attached a drawing with a symbol that I would love to have as a Marionette so that I can adjust the span, height and roof pitch as well as the base size. BENT.vwx
  22. Adding this to your script will display the time it took to run. import time startTime = time.time() #your code here executionTime = (time.time() - startTime) vs.AlrtDialog('Execution time in seconds: ' + str(executionTime)) Use this to use a list to elimimate options from another list OmitList =['name1','name2','name3', 'name4','name5'] #replace name# with names of items to skip for List2 in reversed(range(1,List2+1)): #List2 is the list of items you wish to process. Remove Reversed() to step through list in order. if any(item == vs.GetName(List2) for item in OmitList): #if name of List2 item matches name in OmitList it will result in True continue #skip rest of script for this item and continue to next item in List2 #Insert script to execute if name is not in OmitList.
  23. Yes it does need this exactly as described Just tested it and all that is need is the "NotesManagerDataFile" text at the top This is created by Vectorworks if the file is edited.
