    Isn't the problem that the plug-in is currently obsolete, either with regard to VW 2019-2020 or to the fact that it is not current with Velux models?

    So I did email Jerry directly and here is his reply. He either didn't get the thrust of this or it doesn't concern him. He merely states what is and not what may or may not be intended : Currently, the only Vectorworks files we offer at VELUX America, are for our VMS VELUX Modular Skylights. https://www.veluxusa.com/professional/products/modular-skylights/cad-bim With kind regards, Jerry Haynes Skylight – Global Product Management Phone: 864-941-5016 .

    So I contacted Velux and this is what I got back: Hi Bradley, I reached out to a colleague and this was the response I received: As I understand, Vector Works has an “Add/Import Dxf/Dwg” function that would allow use of our .dxf and .dwg CAD files. We have skylight models, as Revit .rfa family files, but I do not know if they can be imported into Vector Works’ BIM program. If you have additional questions and would like to email him, please send those inquiries to: jerry.haynes@velux.com With kind regards, VELUX America LLC Business Services www.veluxusa.com Sounds like they have abandoned our format, indeed.
  4. There are legacy commands I use occasionally: Cut 2D Section Cut 3D Section They can be found by going to TOOLS>WORKSPACE EDITOR>EDIT CURRENT WORKSPACE and adding the two menu commands to your View menu. With these commands you can cut sections that will reside on Design Layers where you can draft over them. Play with these a bit and see if either of these helps. bc

    Nice work BCD! Thank you! I will be taking this approach. NIce and simple. And nice try Peter, thanks for trying it out and offering your method. Way further than I got. bc
  6. See the attached shot of a door with sidelights. Notice the frame and muntins are seemingly multi-surfaced as if there are two surfaces fighting for recognition by the OpenGL render mode. How do I get rid of this? Thanks bc edit: I notice that if I turn off Include Muntins, they go away and I am left with just the sidelight frame. so apparently when muntins are applied VW also reapplies the frame and hence the conflict. Why would the frame be re-added? You are specifying muntins.
  7. I think I found the issue. Go to Settings in the OIP In the 3d Visualization dialog under the bottom 3D Detail Levels, uncheck all the ones that are adjacent to "Show leaf as solid".
  8. Wes, it seems to be posted above.

    Site Modelling

    Try going to Site Model Settings in the OIP. In the 3d Display dialog uncheck Show Skirt.
  10. FWIW, today one can fit to objects on the same layer.

    Cutting in roof

    Nice work Pat!
  12. Perhaps your rail and style widths need specifying. Go to Settings in the OIP and in the Leaf dialog, size the appropriate members.

    Window trim visibility

    Christiaan. That did it! Thanks a lot. Sheesh. You'd think it would be simpler than this.

    Window trim visibility

    Thanks Pat but no, the active class is None. I should add that in Plan it will disappear when classed off. In Top Plan, it remains visible. Maybe something to do with wireframe vs OpenGL? And yes the trim does disappear in 3D. And I can't class them off in viewports set to top plan
