  1. 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 ?
  2. 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
  3. copy - thank you ! LMB failure is what I have.
  4. Hi all, My CadMouse is dying - has anyone tried the new wireless version? What else is on the hot spot these days in terms of mice that play nice with VectorWorks ? thanks! E
  5. reviving this thread for 2019 ! My CadMouse has a left button issue that I think is goign to send it to the grave! Would love a new mouse recommendation ! e
  6. Tried that and it crashed out my system; creating too many polygons 😞
  7. 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 ? Thanks E
  8. I'm still hoping for a decent library of humans to use.
  9. Does it effect an import? If I'm bringing in a sketchup for example - will that reduce polygon count ?
  10. The convert to mesh crashed my computer. I'm working on a collaborative event so do not have much choice as to importing. ty
  11. I'm coming back to this thread. I have a file that is crawling - and I found a symbol embedded in and embedded symbol. it was 100,000+ 3D Pollygons. This is the kind of thing I'm looking for a tool to help find. It was quite hidden!
  12. I remember that ESC should also cancel a Render in progress? I can't stop a render with ESC ESC or Contro-. frustrating
  13. 2019 and I'm still hunting down decent human figures. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks! Ethan
  14. Oh - i'm on 2019 -> Haven't updated that since 2016 ! LOL! Got t working in 2018. Its a great start. As I said - I think VectorWorks should take it and turn it into somethign like the "Wall" tool. - inlcude Jacks (type, size, interval, etc ..); but probably not worth their time? I dig it 🙂 Ethan
  15. HOLY CRAP - ABOUT TO DROP ALL MY WORK TO TRY THIS 🙂 IMO - this should be grabbed up by VectorWorks and integrated into 2020. Such a basic tool that can be expanded on and used everyday! Thank you for even attempting it 🙂 Ethan @Brendan Gray @Charlie Winter
  16. As cloud services picks up the file from dropbox -> Is it whatever view happens to be active on the file when the process begins on the cloud server? That seems a bit random. It also stops me from working on the file during the wait time & Process time 😞
  17. I'm sure this is covered somewhere, but I cannot find the right search terms. When I use Cloud Services to publish the 3D model - how do I set the initial "home" view? Thank you
  18. I gave the Repeat Along Path tool a try. it is seems more a glorified Duplicate along path then a true PIO tool. I would not consider it a replacement, though it can be useful.
  19. Has anyone seen the instagram ad? That is pretty slick! Have no idea how to do that in VectorWorks !!
  20. This is more along the lines of what I was thinking. Model on a PIO like the Rope & Stanchion Tool. That will allow editing of paths and output to a report. Thank you Kevin for creating the Request !!!
  21. @Kevin - lol - odd workaround - works for a bit- then if I re-open VectorWorks (mostly due to crashing) it has to be done again.
  22. I wish we Could do this on the Info Pallet - drag left so that there is more room Or if the drop-down right justified so you could see the full names.
  23. That's what I'm doing now. Would be great if it was more like the Rope&Stanchion - so I could edit the polyline and have it auto adjust. Also - adjust if I change barricade styles - aka from 8' Bike Rack to 10' wooden police or 3' MOJO 🙂
