  1. we have all noted this for years.

    The new model of 'annual release' to justify subscription packages is the culprit.

    This - i belive - is  a practise started by apple wit the iPhones and has come to dominate the industry.


    Gone are the days when software could refine itself over years.  The push for new features now outways basic functionality; and we are all dealing with bloated software.

    Anyone wonder why Acrobat is over 1GB of code?

  2. Apologies if this has been asked and answered ...

    When checking layers in/out we are asked to make notes - which is great!


    Is there a way to see a running list of those check in/out notes?

    - Perhaps even linked to a design space object on each layer that shows notes relevant to that layer?


    That way one could track changes between updates (as long as there is good note taking).


    On that _note_ is there a way to simply show changes since your last sync?


    Thank you!


  3. Yes - that is the file you have in the slack 🙂

    It comes in as Meshes however; which is a drag.


    Blender -> OBJ  <-- VectorWorks

    an .fbx file import would be much better.

    does c4d take .FBX ?

  4. Hi all,

    I have a buildilng model that was made in Blender and I'm trying to import into VectorWorks.

    Is there a workflow that works?

    Any outside software needed as a magic box?

    ie. Blender -> 3DStudio -> VectorWorks


    thank you

  5. Hi all,

    I"m sure this is an easy thing - only I can't find a thread.


    I have a complex model I imported - that I want to convert to 2D Polygons; however I want to take it about 1/2 way 'up' the z-axis.


    If I clip cube (clipcube) it I can see what I want.


    How do a get this to be usable in 2D ?
