  1. I'm a bit confused by some calculations for cut and fill that Vectorworks is giving me - this could of course be my own ignorance on the subject!

     

    In the attached going from the bottom up, the first site model slopes steeply and I want to level it out. The second is the site model with a spoil pile modifier at elevation 480 on the left of the model and it gives me a cut volume of 0 and fill volume of 28.03m3. In the 3rd image, I've used a pad modifier over the whole site at an elevation of 480 and it gives a cut volume of 13.477m3 and fill of 12.582m3 with .895m3 left over (26.954 m3 total). The top image is the 2d model. Why the discrepancy? Which modifier should I be using to work out how much to spread and how much to remove as this has obvious cost implications and I want to get it right.

  2. I'm running VWX 2023 on Mac. In shaded, circles are jagged. I created the circle myself and created a hardscape to represent a drain cover. In shaded options I have it set to Very High. In Vectorworks preferences I have 3D set to Very high. Attached is the design layer in shaded and it also shows as a jagged circle in Viewport when set to final quality, high detail at 370dpi. I didn't have this problem in VWX 22. Any advice?

  3. I am using the hedgerow tool in 2023 and I'm having problems with rendering a curved shape. If I create a straight hedge it's fine. I've tried by class or direct texture and it makes no difference and I've also tried changing the mapping types in the OIP and still no change.  Where am I going wrong?

  4. I’m running Vectorworks 2021 on Mac Book Pro under Monterey 12.0.1 OS. The Mac is connected directly to the BlackMagic box via Thunderbolt 3 cable supplied with the box. I don’t have any external monitors connected. I’ve checked the software to ‘ Prefer external GPU. The Mac can ‘see’ the box as its on the activity monitor and on the menu bar. Absolutely nothing happens in Vectorworks. When rendering a drawing it is only using the internal Intel graphics card.

     

    Is there anything else I can do to resolve this? I’m really disappointed as I thought it was going to make things much faster.
