  1. 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
  2. Wow - Super impressed !! Could do something similar for NivoFlex adjustable stages ?!?
  3. 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.
  4. I had to go to preferences - disable and then re-enable the "adjust flipped text" in the Document Settings.
  5. There is a thread regarding setting up an excel via ODBC here. Not sure if it will work - but its a start
  6. Thanks - I figure also in the next 6 months the External GPU will hit more mainstream. We're starting to see the first with the Razer Core 2 !
  7. Looking at a laptop running with the MX150 mobile gfx card. Has anyone had any experience with it ? I do enough 3D work to worry thanks ethan
  8. I set the one of the SpaceNavigator buttons to "Switch Navigation" and the other to "Switch Projection" This is allowing me to experiment with all the different permutations quickly. All sorts of new modes ! LOL! The switching from Ortho to Perspective seems to be key in getting the 3d to work happily?
  9. Found it. 1 - Set Perspective to "Normal" .. THEN choose your view modes. You get a whole new set: Camera Target Camera 2d Ojbect HELICOPTER
  10. Surpisingly there is not a good single-man lift there.
  11. I have the wired CadMouse and really like it - good for large hands and easy buttons.
  12. To tack onto this - I'm trying to use a worksheet to edit TitleBlock data from a central location. I'm having issues with the data being updated from the Worksheet -> Titleblock. The only record that will update the title block is the "Drawing Description" - and that only once I click into edit mode of the titleblcok and cancel out (It needs to bring up the dialogue box). All the rest of the reports only have 1 way correspondence - from the Titleblock OIP -> Worksheet. Has anyone tried this successfully?
  13. Thank you! I have 14k on my job
  14. HI all, Trying to find a decent 2d/3d symbol for a 19' Scissor lift and a single manliest - anyone have an assist Thanks Ethan
  15. Hi Claes, Which program are you using that has this option? Is it sketch-up ? TY Ethan
  16. Thank you Andy ! LOL! I have no idea where I found those either the first time - but I like them
  17. I once had a great library of 2D Top view people - was great with men / woman and superhero (Hulk and Clark!) Wondering if any one remembers where that was? I wish VectorWorks had a better library of figures. This is one are I feel that is lagging for VectorWorks all around. One of these days I hope that one of us gets it together and creates a repository !
  18. Ok - Played with this a bit more - and it seems quite effective. Initially there is a bunch of processing time to create the Hybrid Object - but once created, it reacts well. Enclosed is my new 2d Model + the settings I used to reduce the number of faces. I was able to convert to a Hybrid Symbol as well ! Thank you! Ethan
  19. HMm - the "Create Auto Hybrid" is a tool I did not know about - interesting. It seems to help a bit in the simplification process - will explore - thank you !
  20. Ok- so this would be a great addition to VectorWorks - considering the derth of existing .vwx models on the 'interwebs' - this is what I go through as well - annoying stuff. thanks! Ethan
  21. Hi all, 3dwarehouse is a goto spot for lots of symbols. I'm able to import great 3D Meshes - but I want to create flat 2D versions for hybrid symbols. I try all the "convert" commands - but nothing is quick. Does anyone have a good workflow for this? Thanks! Ethan
  22. I also found this video on YouTube - starting with the right photo is 1/2 the battle !!! Ethan
