    I think the '3 lines' The Hamma is referring to are the 3 axes of the 3D locus itself (see image attached), rather than a display error.

     

    There are workarounds for sure, but it would be an excellent feature if the displayed point size could be adjusted. At present it appears to be fixed at 1 pixel per point regardless of the zoom. If a free program like CouldCompare can implement point size adjustment, then I'd assume it's well within the capability of Vectorworks programmers to introduce something similar. If we get enough support for it on this thread perhaps it will make the shortlist for VW 2021!

    You are correct and well said!


  2. Often times I run a command and vectorworks takes an exorbitant amount of time to compute. This time I was trying to convert an exterior elevation to lines.   It has been running for about an hour now with no progress.

    There needs to be a way to quit commands without loosing your work.  Or just fix vectorworks so it doesn't take so long.  I am sure if it used 100% of the CPU's it would be much quicker. 

     


  3. 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);


  4. 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

    @The Hamma ,

     

    It looks like most of the objects in the 3D Component are set to display along with the 2D components. This is causing the objects to be rendered in hidden line behind the displayed 2d component. Try editing the 3D component of the symbol, select all of the objects, click on the "Display with 2D Components" button in the Object Info platte and uncheck all of the options. Once you do that, it should render much faster.

    Thanks that was the issue.

  6. 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);
