  1. @Christiaan Bloody clip cube! cheers for this, I was just choosing which window the PC was about to go out!
  2. Hi @Wes Gardner, that works well when creating the ceiling from and extrusion. I could use the cut extrusion, to create a polygon the correct size. Create a slab from that, giving me a correct slab for the ceiling. But I suppose is there any benefit at that point to using the slab for a ceiling over a simple extrusion? thanks, Josh
  3. Hi, Anyone able to point me to a tutorial on creating a ceiling in an attic space? I can fudge it and get it sort of the right size but it's a b it of a faff. There must be an easier way! It's probably something simple I am over looking? The roof is made up of roof faces and the ceiling a slab. Ideally I would be able to get the slab to intersect with the soffit of the roof. TIA, Josh
  4. Thanks for the suggestion. I had a look at their products and downloaded one of their doors. They do have vectorworks formats but they aren't quite as friendly as vectorworks own doors. They are more just 3D extrudes put into a symbol. Still, better than starting from scratch!
  5. I quite like how the stories work. Really handy when sketching out designs and fiddling with levels. That said, they probably are less beneficial for two storey development. I'm new to vectorworks (and architecture!) this year after working as an SE Tech using AutoCAD and Revit. I swear, if you could smash Revit and Vectorworks into each other hard enough, you would have some great software!
  6. Yes, likewise, I have to delete the wall peaks to reset it and get FWtO to work. I've started changing how I create my upper floor walls also. Previously, I used stories and walls would go "top of slab" to top of slab over". for this I would create a "top of slab" level on the upper most story, or a false story. Now on my upper floors I tend to set walls as from "top of slab" and the upper to wall height. Then use FWtO to get the correct elevation for the roof height. This seems to make FWtO much more consistent.
  7. @Wes Gardner @David S Thank you for the comments and sorry for the slow reply. I'm struggling to upload a file to this at the moment - I have tried increasing the overhang to see if it resolves it but it still is happening. I've worked around it with negative embedment depths. I'll come back to this when I next come across it!
  8. So I'm struggling with this at present. We tend to use a lot of 3-5 leaf bifold doors around here. I have looked through a few posts and came to the conclusion Windoor is the way to go, except "WinDoor is now only available as an upgrade to existing WinDoor users residing outside Australia and New Zealand. New licenses are no longer available". Is there now a solution with 2019? Is it possible to import it as a symbol if I was to create the bifold in alternative software such as Revit, sketch-up (or even microsoft paint!)?
  9. Hi! I'm having a right mare trying to get my walls to fit to my roof faces. I'm not sure if it's my workflow or a plug-in style for either the roof face or wall. Here is the settings of another example: and when I click ok: Any ideas? Cheers, Josh
  10. Sorry I should have updated this. I discovered that when I purged the drawing or some other process, it deleted the bit where the layer is associated to the story. I had to go back through each later and link it back to the story. I can elaborate more tomorrow when I have vectorworks open at work if you are still stuck!
  11. Somewhere along the line of adding the site, I lost the 1st floor walls. Then when trying to get them back I lost the ground floor too. Everything is on solid that I can see (they were a copy and paste of the ground floor and were working fine!) The walls are supposed to go from 300 below structure to the top of structure on the story above. This is the general set up I have used on the last couple of projects and seems to have worked fine. Can anyone see where I am going wrong? Hopefully, I am doing something stupid and this will be a quick fix! thanks in advance, Josh
  12. That's the one! No idea when or how that got turned off! Thanks for your help. atb, Josh
  13. @ASagatovVW Oh that sounds promising. I'm home now so i will try this in the morning. Thank you. @zoomer This is the folder tree I have. and this is what I am hoping to find: I'll try the "Tools > Options > Vectorworks Preferences > Session Tab > Make sure "Enable Online Content" option and report back. thanks, Josh
  14. Sorry, the picture is misleading and maybe my question. Their should be more folders and many more trees listed. The only tree's showing are ones I downloaded on another project. I've tried refreshing also. It's like the resource browser is not seeing the vectorworks online library? For example, if you right click the file the download option is not there.
