  1. Hello Marissa,

     

    I am trying to create parametric extruded object. The tutorials I found are way to primative to be useful. I need to be able to take a simple 2d profile (think moulding) and extrude it base on the particular need. I work at a museum and we have simple metal rails of different lengths, but all the same profile.  I link text and records in order to create a schedule of our inventory. 

     

     

  2. Anyone else have this issue? While zooming or panning in a sheet layer, I can see a whole lot of objects from my design layers. It's incredibly distracting.
  3. @Jesse Cogswell Thank you for your help. My problem is not getting columns to subtract each other, but when I SUMmarize subrows and then try to subtract those sums from another cell in a different row. The cells that aren't summarized calculate just fine.
  4. @Pat Stanford Got it. Well, that's a stinker. Kind of seems lame, to me. It dramatically reduces the value of worksheets form me. I don't suppose that was changed in 2021? We're scheduled to get it some day (soon, I hope). Thanks again, Mark
  5. @Pat Stanford Thank you Pat, but I'm afraid I don't see a link to the thread.
  6. @Pat Stanford Would something like this work? Maybe not. My attempt (below) failed.
  7. @Jesse Cogswell It was set to integer. I changed it to number, but it didn't work
  8. @Jesse Cogswell I inserted that formula and it failed.
  9. I am also wondering why, when I try to format the thumbnails to justify to the left, I get this:
  10. @Pat Stanford ='Exhibit Element'.'Quantity–Total Stock' I created a Field in the Record format for what we have as our total stock of these items.
  11. How do I get one column to subtract the summarized count from another column? I can see what is going on, and why I am getting the results I am getting, but not sure how to get Column E to be correct. It is not subtracting the summarized values of D, but each individual item.
  12. @jeff prince I've used it to modify 3D objects using the geometry from another object when I want to make sure the object shares the same geometry/dimensions. It has worked successfully when the original objects have been created in the same drawing, layer and general proximity. Now that I realize there is not a way to stop the underlying shapes from landing in their point of origin, I will be more cautious about when I do that.
  13. This is very challenging, at times, because the only way I can get the polygon back where I want it is to go and actually grab and move it to that location. I can't select it, cut it, and click on the desired location and have it paste there. It always lands somewhere else. So, I know this probably seems self-evident, but it is best practice to have the user origin in the same location as the internal origin align, correct? Additionally, where is the best place to locate the origin in sheet layer? Should it be directly on top of the internal origin on the design layer?
  14. @jeff prince I am pretty sure it has to do with my own misunderstanding of how things work with regards to origin placement, screen layer, layer plane, etc. I just recently discovered that there is an internal origin in addition to a user origin. I guess this all comes with being self-taught. I have been using VWX since it was MiniCAD. Example: If something is extruded, then moved and rotated, etc., if I copy the underlying polygon and paste it directly into the design layer, I assume it will land where it was originally created?
  15. How do I keep certain objects from landing way off in the distance when editing objects? I constantly find myself cutting and pasting things in place, only to find that they are why off from the place I want them to be. Thanks
  16. @grant_PD Thanks for your response. I did look for a moulding plugin, but could not find the one you are referring to. Where would I find it?

  18. @AlanW Maybe they will find a way to enable all annotations of viewports on the same sheet layer to be accessible at the same time.
  19. Wow, that seems like a lot of unnecessary work. It is easy to hide 2D objects in a viewport, but if you want to do a walk-thru that includes hybrids while in the design layer, it's a mess.
  20. There are too many different locations for controlling some things in VW. It's like having a 15-way switch for one lightbulb.
  21. @Joxley Yes. I would also like to know how to do this.
