  1. Do you know when this is going to come out?
  2. Good to know it's being worked on. Thanks .
  3. Hey Online! I was wondering why I was having issues with lining up a simple stick of truss to a generated floor when you change the hanging angle by 90 degrees? The center point of the truss seems to be the starting point of the drawn truss. In one pic from the 2D planview you can see it clearly not placed on the floor. In the other in the 3D view you see it lined up. Is there a way of having the rotating truss to take the centerpoint of the truss while vertical instead of the starting point?
  4. I'll check it out. They seem pretty handy. I've seen them being used for macro/executer triggers in MA2 onPC as well.
  5. I'm learning from the "Creating a basic lighting plot" PDF and it mentions the function "Convert to light position". ( Modify>convert> ?) It doesn't seem to exist. I'm going to go ahead and assume that I believe is no longer relevant with the recent software updates?
  6. Thanks for the reply! I'm attempting to assign the keys to a radial menu option with a 3D mouse to make it easier.
  7. Has anyone else had issues with trying to assign "Alt + Shift + 'letter' " to a shortcut? For example: I want to assign "Alt+shift+x" to the function of "Hanging position". If I assign this combination in the Workspace editor it will only trigger as if you programmed it as "Alt + X" which will tab you into the "Text" menu. Same with "Alt+shift+V" it will only act as "Alt + V" which is the View menu. I'm creating functions this complex to work with the 3D connexion radial menus. Thoughts?
  8. I was wondering if anyone here has made a template for a printable sticker sheet for the shortcuts in the program? I'm trying to learn faster and I was thinking that this may help?
  9. Through the video tutorials they mention how to make a NURBS curve but not a surface. I've attempted to create one with the push/pull tool? I keep getting the same error.
  10. Hi Vectorworks hivemind, I'm attempting to follow the Creating Surface Array video verbatim (making sure that I'm using 2D locus with 2D objects and 3D locus points with 3D objects this time) and I'm running into the "illegal extrude or sweep issue". I've created a dome 3D object and an extruded 2D object = no go. I've created a 2D sweep object for a surface with an extruded 2D object = no go. It mentions that solids, sweeps, extrudes, meshes 3D polys and 2D objects are all considered viable array objects but I keep getting an error?
  11. perfect. Thanks Kevin! I'm sure this won't be the last time I'll be here.
  12. I'm having trouble adding a locus point to the rotation axis of a 2D object. I've followed the video instructions to "add a locus point" and have both the 2D object created with both nurbs curves and simple shapes and the the point and I keep getting: "There were objects selected that were illegal in extrudes and sweeps. They have been deselected" And it deselects the locus point? Something I'm missing?
