  1. Thank you so much @Matt Overton and @Matt Panzer !
  2. Hi All, I am attempting to create a camera match for a residential renovation project. The intention is to superimpose the model onto an existing photograph to show how the addition/renovation affects the street view. The issue is that the site is very steep and the building is bit complicated. In the model, Level 1 is set at 0'-0" and the photo was taken from a road below (about 35' below Level 1). I figured out how to set a head height and target eye height when setting up a camera view but could not find that option in camera match. In the screen shots below you can see the camera match image it taken from too high (I'm seeing too much roof and the windows appear way to low). I've also tried fine tuning the view but it just gets too distorted. If anyone has any tips or could point me to a tutorial that would be so appreciated!
  3. @CipesDesign I'm attempting to create countertops with the slab tool (I assume this is the same as the floor tool) but am struggling to make them appear correctly in plan. I created a slab style that is 1.5" thick and have been classifying them in the same class as my base cabinets and on my "level 1" design level and setting the Z-off to 36". Do you have any suggestions for visibility settings or do you typically go over everything with 2-D lines and fills to make it read correctly? Below is a screenshot of my kitchen plan (L-shaped counter and island with bar seats). The purple filled boxes are my base and wall cabinets with my counters (slabs) showing in black. Ideally I'd like the counter to read as filled with dashed and dotted lines denoting the cabinets. Thank you!
  4. Thank you @ColinW and @Wes Gardner !!! This is very helpful!
  5. Hi All, I recently switched from Revit to Vectorworks and am trying to learn best practices and workflow. My biggest issue is deciding when to use 3D modeling tools versus BIM tools and downloadable objects (aka Families in Revit). I'm working on a small residential project and would like to add basic casework. In Revit, I would typically use a combination of parametric cabinet families and resize them to fit or model something from scratch as a "model in place component" using extrusions similar to Vectorworks. I've attempted to bring in some 3D objects from the Resources Library but they do not seem very editable. If anyone could explain their workflow or point me in the direction of some tutorials that would be wonderful. I've been scouring this site as well as youtube and am having trouble finding anything that answers this specific question. Below is a screenshot of my current kitchen model where you can see I'm attempting to use appliance and plumbing components and model and cabinets and it's a bit of a mess. Thank you!
  6. Hi All, Is there anyway in import or place a DWG onto an elevation view (front, back etc.)? I'm working in the Architecture plugin but I believe this is a more general issue. My main objective is too overlay an AutoCAD elevation drawing onto my front, back, left and right views so I can double check the window sizes and roof pitches. Every time I bring in the CAD drawing it defaults to the X-plane/my slab work plane. Thank you!
