  1. Hi Jim, That is what I thought - but some of the libraries (like the ETC Power Library or SquareLED) were not there - I had to go to the Service Select Portal and download them. Is this correct - or is something not connecting on my side? Thanks
  2. Question - aren't the subscription libraires supposed to be available via the Resource browser>VectorWorks Libraries ? Do you actually have to download them?
  3. If I have a large 3D Model of a venue in my drawing. Are you saying it Is better to ex-ref the 3D Model? Lower file size and faster performance? E
  4. Question on webview. When I create the webview via the cloud services - it generates a sharable link. Is there a way to get that link anytime afterwards? Or is this the one and only opportunity? E
  5. -- Update -- I realize that as I continue to work on my file and navigate around- the view-port is obviously knocked out of the correct rotation. So I have to go back to a "Saved View" Prior to exporting each time? Is that the workaround? To confirm that I'm always in the correct orientation for my design layer / sheet layer viewports to pick up the correct view? (Sorry - tired , I'm not sure if that made any sense!"
  6. Thank you - this method is a great workaround. I agree - simply turning the clip cube into a view-port would cut out many of these steps. I guess it would require 'instances' of clip cube - similar to view-port cameras? Seems a great tool though
  7. Thanks M_ Trying these out. I'd like to see an 'official' version for 2018. It seems this should be something updated since 2014? Thank you Ethan
  8. Man- it really feels as if .VWX is being left behind on many fronts Thank you
  9. Hello all Is there a 'definitive' recommended settings for nVidia GeForce Graphics Cards? I'm back to the PC and have not found any good answer. I"m having a decent amount of performance issues that I don't believe I should be having; as my new PC is epically superior to my 2012 MBP - yet my performance has not significantly improved; and in many cases has regressed. Help please! Ethan
  10. Seems this should be stock somewhere in vwx !
  11. I see that Maxwell works with ArchiCAD and Cinema4D - does it allay with VectorWorks? What would be the workflow ?
  12. I'm on a Gigabyte Aero15x - decent enough - they are coming out with a new model in the next months that will probably be way better Current has the 1070 Max-Q But the new ones will have the new chips and probably fix a keyboard issue that is annoying.
  13. Very cool render view. I've been doing the OpenGL without color to get quick white renders. E My screen grabs are a little ye
  14. Hi Jim, It is a bit better - once the file is drawn and loaded. Also - my screen flashes to black sometimes while it is redrawing? Is this normal? Ii sent you the file in a private chat. Could you open it and check it on your machine? Yes, There are a lot of tables and chairs - but its not a skyscraper or anything extra complicated Thanks Ethan
  15. OMG - I feel this will be life changing !!!! Running out - will do this evening! thanks!
  16. Hi Jim Sending to you. I have a USB 2nd Monitor running right now. But the slow down is wiith or without it. Thanks Ethan I
  17. I'm having similar issues. I'm on a new PC with a 1070 Max-Q card -- It seems as if the card is not being used at all? 2D or 3D - Wireframe or Open GL ?? Is there something I need to do to force VWX to use the fancy dancy GPU card ??
  18. Hmm - this did not seem to stop the auto-Re-render in design layers? Was it supposed to? (has alerted me to things I forgot about though
  19. Is there anyway to stop it from Auto-Rendering on any action? I do some things that should have no impact on the render - and it auto-starts rendering again - wasting another 6-8 min of my life !
  20. Can anyone actually cancel a rendering in progress? I use the escape and/or the CNTRL-Period and neither seems to work? Is there a new tool combo? thanks S_
  21. I can't seem to find a straight forward tutorial on how too use the cloud rendering? Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thank you Ethan
  22. I'm working with a section viiewport now - and my machine is crawling. I think I have to delete them if I'm going to keep working with the file. Not sure as to the cause. Will keep an eye out.
  23. so i'm able to get into the section edit as shown .. Is there a way to just keep this as the actual render setting when I exit the view? This white model is really all that I want. The sections are really stalling my system
  24. Wow - Super impressed !! Could do something similar for NivoFlex adjustable stages ?!?
  25. I found my culprit. There is the Document Preferences -> Adjust Flipped Text. Which I think adjust text in Design Layers / Sheet Layers Then there is the Viewport - > Advance Properties -> Adjust Flipped Text. Which is the toggle for the Viewport. The two seem separate.
