  1. Hello all,

     

    I have a project that requires me to show how space use changes over time.

    I'm new to space planning and having a bit of a bear of this.  

     

    example:

    • Space 1
      • Month 1: Build-Out
      • Month 2: Retail Use 1
      • Month 2: Retail Use 2
      • Month 7: Buildout
      • Month 8: Exhibition
      • Month 14: Tear-Down
      • Month 15: Vacant
    • Space 2
      • Month 1: Build-Out
      • Month 2: Multi-Purpose Event Space
      • Month 6: Buildout
      • Month 8:  Exhbitoin

    etc ..

    This could also be reorganized by time

     

    • Month 1
      • Space 1: Build-Out
      • Space 2: Build Out
    • Month 2
      • Space 1: Retail 1
      • Space 2: Multi-Purpose Event Space

     

    As a final product

    I would like a series of color coded plans showing Usage per Time Period

     

    It would great to be able to generate a worksheet from the same data to allow easier manipulation.

     

    Thank you

    Ethan


  2. @Pat Stanford Thank you

     

    Reading this; I'm thinking that it is probably faster to simply bash this out on 15 Sheet Layers!  🤣

     

    I'll give it a go and see how we do!

    For reporting - maybe copy past into excel?


  3. Thanks Pat

     

    I have a unit with about 9 "Spaces" or "Areas"

     

    I think what you say is correct

     Probably the best way would be to create a custom record format with a field for each scenario (or month) and fill that in for each space. You can then use that data to either generate lists or to use Data Visualization to change the display attributes of the spaces.

     

    Over the course of time, the spaces will change use

    example:

    • Space 1
      • Month 1: Build-Out
      • Month 2: Retail Use 1
      • Month 2: Retail Use 2
      • Month 7: Buildout
      • Month 8: Exhibition
      • Month 14: Tear-Down
      • Month 15: Vacant
    • Space 2
      • Month 1: Build-Out
      • Month 2: Multi-Purpose Event Space
      • Month 6: Buildout
      • Month 8:  Exhbitoin
    • etc ..

    This could also be reorganized by time

     

    1. Month 1
      1. Space 1: Build-Out
      2. Space 2: Build Out
    2. Month 2
      1. Space 1: Retail 1
      2. Space 2: Multi-Purpose Event Space

  4. I need to define space use over time.

    ie. month 1 -> usage scenario A

    month 3 -> usage Scenario B

     

    is spaces the right tool for this?

    Can someone help me with a good tutorial?

     

    Thank you

  5. 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?

  6. 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!

  7. 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 ?


  8. 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
