  1. thanks for the reply , I thought it was a class problem but I'm embarassed to say it was simpler than that It seem I drew the basement stub walls on the same layer and they were on top of

    the 1st floor walls

    thanks Mike

  2. a bit more info on this one , the default reflectivity shader for pine is matte if i change this to anything else and back the other color changes will take efect and all seems to normal again .

    anybody have any idea whats going on ??

  3. I have ,from the oip /render/edit texture in drawing , selected the shader in the case pine and changed the wood color ,click ok and thecolor swatch changes in the edit dialog box click ok again and back to the drawing and no change in the texture , the thum nails that apear in the object browser also remain unchanged even when changed to wht the texture remains un changed . I can crate a new texture but can not change its color once created either . other parameters such as grain size do change and update in the texture properly

    what am i doing wrong I know I have done this in the past without a problem any ideas out there ??

    just updated to sp2 and vwa 11.1


  4. Hi

    sorry about not responding sooner been out of the loop for a few days

    yes after changing view angles ( in perspective ) and lighting (moving or changing light settings ) it will happen again I havn't figured out if it the view or lights yet



  5. HI

    I am having trouble printing to an hp 1220c , a just compleated drawing, rendered in final quality renderworks with several textures none of which is stock but all have been used previously ,printer set for normal the printed result is just a rectangle that looks to be the size of the print area bounding box ?? the drawing will print in wireframe with no difuculty and if I copy to a newly opened drawing set up with the same template it will print rendered untill I start changing views and or lighting . this is the first time this has happened and it repeated 3 times on the same drawing yesterday ..

    anyone have any ideas (print driver is up to date )



  6. HI

    I have created a wide shed dormer (cape style)in a gable roof and have 2 problems with it 1 is i cant't figure out how to add a second window or change the location of the first without ungrouping the whole roof and second the normal selection handle for the dormer and the center handle for the roof disapear when the dormer is centered on the roof and flush with the wall below so I can't select either am i doing something wrong here ??



  7. I have a problem with the gable dormers inserted in a roof object , I have added a clapboard texture to the sides which looks just as it should on the outside but the texture has been applied to the inside as well is there a way to texture the inside individualy ???



  8. thanks for the reply BaRa ,that does it. seems similar to duplicate along path . By any chance do you know where it is in the users guide , been through it twice and its bugging me that i can't find it

    thanks again


  9. hi

    duplicate along path is usefull in the same way as duplicate array. balusters, posts ,colums,etc but it alows for much more flexability in the placement of the duplicates as they will follow a path object which doesn't have to be a streight line or circle

    hope that helps


  10. Hi JNR

    have had the same problem with the mini image in the upper left on both hp 722 and 1220 wide format printers but I can't get it to reproduce the problem on demand I posted on this a while back but it is so intermitant I can't get a handle on it it only happens when printing a rendered layer link in a rotated view so far it hasn't happened in a plain front or side view I have not seen any other reports of this problem maybe it is a pc thing
