  1. You got it Kevin. That 2-step process is my plan - going to try the viewport over a viewport! LOL! E
  2. Not sure why I had it working great - then replaced a profile trying to get it working better now apps not seeing the 3dware profiles ?
  3. Ok - I had it working perfectly .. but now my 3dXware no longer links to my apps have a message into 3dConnextion support
  4. Hi - Before I go into "research mode" (Trial & Error!) I want to create an IMAG viewport. Figuring I can - Create a Viewport from a rendtrworks camera - Copy that viewport to a sheet layer with a screen distort / adjust that camera viewport to match the skew of the new viewport? Anyone have a better idea? Thanks! Ethan
  5. Thank you so much Jim ! Will give it a go! (FYI - the old K-base was working better now then it did on last firmware). Appreciate all. best Ethan
  6. I'm watching as well - and am incredibly appreciative. Made it to Philly last year, but not Chicago this Was going to as for the 3dConnnexion info as well! LOL I'll try the settings located above; i've tried before without your success with that k-base article. If you find yourself with an extra moment - could you export your settings and post? I always read the "Attached to the bottom of this article you will find an exported configuration in case you would like to try exactly the settings we use here, they can be added via the Configure > Import Configuration menu option." and wish it was there !! thank you
  7. The Rosebrand integration is amazing. I have worked with Peter, Bob and the gang for years (Funny aside - My wife designed and I programmed their first commerce site years ago!!) I'm loving the #3. Create archway for egress idea above. Combined with the X for where curtains end. What would be great for me - is to be able to mark where I NEED a split in the drape - and then have it create one. Often we will have a long run - but need to add in a split for an emergency exit, catering access or some other "Behind the Scenes" need. So it is not necessarily a "Archway" - but it is a point where we need to note an egress split in the drape. As of now - I usually just draw a thick red line where I need it - but that does not show up on a report Exciting times! Ethan
  8. that is part of my "Being Crazy" ... LOL As a workaround - I'm reserving the view over the old one. 1) Click Saved View 2) Redefine View 3) Save view with same name works enough
  9. That is what I am talking about - If I edit - it does not redefine the actual "View" - only the saved properties (Layers / Classes / etc ...) ... there used to be a "redefine" button (I think?) that would only change the actual VIEW (the what you were looking at) ???
  10. Am I crazy - or is my option to "redefine" a saved view missing now in 2016 sp2 Mac ?? Thanks
  11. Am I being a bit slow this morning - I can't seem to find the "Redefine" option anymore ???? on 2016 sp2 Mac ... ????
  12. HI I actually have the exact set-up you have depicted When I try to get the SpaceNavigator to emulate what you show on the youtube - everything is pinned to the origin - so I can't make the 3d translations ;( some other SpaceNavigator setting ? ie. dominant? You're set-up seems to work perfectly. Would you be so kind as to export it from the 3d Connection Pref pane and post here? I feel that I must be missing something. Maybe there is a VectorWorks a tool that must be active? thanks Ethan
  13. Thank you Have you tried the CadMouse ?
  14. Hello all .. I see now that the 3dConnection CadMouse has support for OS X. Wondering if anyone is using it successfully with 2016? I have the SpaceNavigator as well - which is hit & miss. I'm still trying to get a good configuration (If anyone has one - love to import it!) thanks Ethan
  15. sorry Tim - just re-read my response - and it reads like it came from a guy tired at the end of the week! Thank you for taking the time to answer best Ethan
  16. yeah - I saw this .. but this has nothing to do with Theatrical / Events. Looking for something that is a little more pertinent to the industry?
  17. Hey Everyone .. So realizing my sheet #'s are just sort of Random. I use the A-1, A-2, for major Groundplans R-1, R-2 for Renderings then it gets foggy L-1 could be "L"obby or "L"unch ! Does anyone have a good system? Would be great if we all used the same! thanks
  18. Have no idea why this is happening. in OpenGL - they look great in RenderWorks - they look bloated and aliased ??? Help please (pics enclosed)
  19. Duh - in VectorWorks service select library of downloads
  20. I think the 2 part plan - windows and then symbol for the wire rope supports is a good plan - will give it a try Thank you all
  21. Hello all - Doing a job at the new Whitney Museum and am trying to recreate their curtain wall. I'm pretty new to curtain walls - and have not found a good visual guide to the parameters. Enclosed is a photo. If anyone would be so kind as to point me towards the correct settings - it would be much appreciated. Thank you Ethan
  22. I'm having the same issue in 2015 SP3 ??
  23. Found a great calculator here: http://rechneronline.de/sehwinkel/angular-diameter.php
