  1. I've seen a great looking plugin for downpipes (or downspouts) published by A|F Design - Andrea Facchinello andrea.fno@gmail.com The publishers instructions are " Copy the files into your plug-ins folder: /Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/VectorWorks/[version]/Plug-Ins " On my MacBookPro that path doesn't end in a file named plugins but rather three files named Gobos, Library and Textures. /Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/VectorWorks2019/ Gobos or Library or textures. I've never installed a plugin before and have NO IDEA what I am doing. Any help is appreciated.
  2. Vasil, Thanks for the offer of help. How do I send you a private message?
  3. Vasil, Can I please do the same so that you can, perhaps, diagnose what the problem is. That would be greatly appreciated. DO you have an email I can send to rather than a post on this forum as due to UK/EU data protection laws I need to control personal data included on the original files.
  4. Is it really that bad. I agree this should be a simple process. The software costs a lot and should have this functionality without having to work around, going from 3d to a 2d export. I'm going to try your suggested route. Thanks for the advice.
  5. I have the same problem. I have just begun using Vectorworks 2019 (recently upgraded from many years use from Minicad all the way to VW 12). I now model all buildings in 3d environment. I have exported to dwf/dwg as usual (this has worked well for years for 2d files) to issue drawings to other consultants, however, other consultants cannot open useful drawings. I've tested the files I produce by reimporting the same files back into VW2019 and the result is not very good - lots of information missing. I am now regretting moving to 3d. Is there any advice on how to successfully export from a 3d model based project so other consultants can open useful drawings. Many thanks. Paul
