  1. @DanT thanks DanT. We have vectorworks 2020 landmark edition in the office.  I investigated it's SCI function yesterday and it looks like it hasn't progressed any since you looked at it. 

    The SCI fun croon seems to be just a simple vectorscript which inserted a light source at a nominated height. For some reason, when I placed it on a test terrain, it also shone "through" the terrain to hit other facing terrain planes...!?!

    This isn't something substantial enough to add to a report and be able to quantify effects in any meaningful way. 


    I appreciate that you got back to me and wish you all the best.

    I'm looking to migrate towards Vectorworks and having this capability could be the deal maker. 


    Can anyone share their experiences of using ZVI/ZTV Viewshed analysis within Vectorworks. What are the strengths/weaknesses etc.


    I'm from the UK and I'm hoping I can use governement aerial LiDAR data which natively comes in a .asc format. Is vectorworks capable of reading this directly, or should I be looking to add a conversion step in there via QGIS or something?



    I don't suppose you ever got a response to this?  I'm currently investigating same.


  3. I'm trying to export a file to dwg format and get an error message advising that there is an ODA Platform error and a dwg is not produced.


    We are just switching over to VectorWorks from AutoCAD so the original drawing was generated in CAD then imported into VectorWorks.  Now I have to export as DWG again so as to share it with other consultants.


    I tried exporting as older DWG files and including referenced files as separate layers instead of separate files.  I still get the same error message.


    Any solves would be appreciated.
