  1. Hi guys I'm using Fence /Railing tool quite often but I'm having problems since the beginning with custom models in Italian release I can save my models in the predefined file, but can't use them unless I import them in the active file If I double click the resource from another file, I get the following message If I try to manage it form the OIP, the change is ignored if the custom model comes from another file Custom models in Italian release are stored in the following nested directories with the same name Is it correct? Does occur the same in Int version? Has anyone else experienced that?
  2. To me eyedropper tool works improperly with Fence /Railing tool, dropping only some parameters Did you set the tool correctly?
  3. Thank you Matt for your kind answer As you say, I've seen CM cannot do magics on irrealistic images, so I gave it up What I've done, to solve that, is placing a flat transparent image in Vectorworks, orienting the model as better as possible on that, then adjust in Photoshop Not so easy and fast as CM, but works
  4. Hi all, I'm using CM occasionally since Vectorworks 2010 for architecture purpose Now I'm asked to place large models in big areas far from me So customers usually take pictures made by smartphones with bad quality and big distortion These areas have no certain references and I've often to create panoramas merging pictures, adding even more distortion Sometimes I also have to use Street Views snapshots Is it possible to correct these kind of distortion? Fortunately a big precision is not requested Having a reasonable margin, I've tried the following trick but unsuccessfully First I place the Ref Point, then the vert. lines and after the left and right lines, as better as possible Try to see if the calculated horizontal line matches the picture one I trace a new reference line where I think the horizontal line has to be and put the two vanishing points on it, moving green and red lines Then I slide the vanishing points right and left on the HL to match the perspective The problem is that at a certain point green and red lines misalign with the correspondent ref point. axes and the preview box goes out of perspective, getting me crazy This has nothing to do with the picture distortion What's wrong about that? Does the error refers to blu vertical lines alignment? PS: the picture is just an example of street view photo Prove Camera Match 2.vwx
  5. Thank you JMR I've tried that, but my goal (and I think the goal of a lot of people) is to export also AutoCAD paper space for most compatibility
  6. Personally I get best results by exporting in IGES/SAT but I think the problem is exporting in AutoCAD
  7. Copy and convert in lines the model and then export from a new blank file?
  8. I'm using Vectorworks 2019 IT on 2 monitors both on a mac and win Palettes are in the 2nd monitor as ojardnas On mac docking palettes is really unstable with unpredictable results each time I stretch one of them or quit vw In the picture Info and Navigation Tab became grey and was no longer possible modify them Besides that palettes can't remember the position on the second monitor and come back to 1st one It drived me crazy and had to finally undock them Monitors have different size and pixels
  9. Really? This seems interesting, even if I can't understand the reason
  10. Tried to avoid exporting groups as anonymous blocks? This normally increases file size
  11. Yes Zoomer, I had to explain it better "Copy/Paste with insertion point" is intended to be a command apart not instead of the normal copy paste I'm attaching an AutoCAD contextual menu screenshot to show what I mean
  12. T Thank you Zoomer (sorry for late answer - problem with mail) I knew that What I'd like is a handle FROM which copy and paste, as you write "you have no control where your origin to place from is" It should work as Move by Point tool Believe me, when you have it, you use it
  13. Thank you Jeremy I apologise for late answer, but didn't receive notification of reply Have to control why I know what you mean, but for me it's not the answer for best compatibility from and to AutoCAD I simply have to create just one viewport for sheet layer Not so smart but works
  14. Hi JMR, sorry for late answer: unused symbols, nested symbols in there?The link I posted treats well the argument
  15. Hi guys, there are only few AutoCAD features that I'd like Vectorworks should have, one of them being "Copy with Insertion Point" When you copy some objects with Cmd/Ctrl-Shift +C, you activate the possibility to copy and paste from a desired point, instead of pasting from the center of them
