  1. I recently used graphic legends developing a kitchen project... worked very well for what I was looking for, the layout took a bit of fiddling

    and it's hard to eliminate unnecessary white space as seen below the vertical size of each cell is keyed to the cabinet that's' tallest...

    and the layout for the others isn't ideal. Does anyone know a workaround?

    But I'm really liking the convenience..Screenshot2023-11-16at10_25_07AM.thumb.png.cb96576c0afad83220121da33ded01ed.png

    @dtheory looking through your website you'll probably be happiest heading into twinmotion/lumion/enscape.  They are all fast gpu style renderers and pretty easy to get used to.  I would think the complexity of C4D or some other 3d modeling program+renderer will be too overwhelming for what you produce.  

    Thanks for the feedback, I was a user of C4D in the past, and yes, it's really not justifiable for what I'm doing now. I'm currently exploring TwinMotion.

  3. Pardon me if this has been covered.. seems like the subject is in flux.

    Anyone want to chime in with recommendations for a supplemental renderer for VW Designer.. anything from free on upward..

    I'm a solo operation, so probably biased toward low cost and speedy renders.. (pick two.. cheap good or fast!).


    Thanks all..

    If you're actually building cabinets, you might want to check out



    I'm familiar with Interiorcad.. I've been an owner, but can't really justify the purchase since they've raised prices..  I do design build, and cabinets are a part of what I do, but not the main thing, hence the need for estimating..

  5. Thanks for the input and sample files, some good stuff to try, though, by way of a comment, seems like area of doors and drawer fronts, in categories by material would be a good ones to be available in the basic built-in criteria..

  6. Hi All,


    Is anyone aware of a worksheet criteria that would allow the extraction of square footage (or square inches, whatever) of cabinet doors and/or drawer fronts?

    I can ballpark this with cabinet width and height, however, on this project, I have a significant number of "two sided" cabinets, and it would be convenient to extract the 

    square footage of those parts for estimating purposes, also possibly extract numbers for different door materials such as solid slab, shaker, or glassfront..



  7. Hi.. I've been a user for ages, and I have a number of old installer disc sets.. is there anything that can be done with these:

    donate, give away etc, that would adhere to the licensing agreements?

    Apologies if this has been asked before...


  8. @Jesse CogswellThank you for making this available to our community! 

    This is a great tool.. definitely should be core functionality of VW out of the box. Completely non-modal would be even better,

    but I don't think that could be done with scripting, unless I'm mistaken..  but I digress..

    I'm using it in my document context right click, and I've found that when I'm in a viewport annotation

    it'll appear only if an annotation element is selected.. not when simply right clicking in an otherwise "empty" part of the viewport.

    Is this expected behavior?

    Now... how about restoring the snapping tools to a palette.. is that a possible customizaton?

  9. I (probably) agree with you.. but I can't help but hope that the rumor mills are on to something..

    An M1 Max Mini would be a super hot seller.. so there's that..

     Unfortunately that probably won't ever happen as it would severly undercut Apple's high-end price points on the new M1Pro/Max Macbook Pros while also pushing the Mini in the wrong direction (from Apple's perspective) toward the performance tier(s) of forthcoming MX-powered Mac Pros.
