  1. To my knowledge, nothing has improved since then, and any improvements seem unlikely, I ponder sometimes if the focus of Vectorworks is architecture...
  2. Sadly, Vectorworks has neglected those areas for Architects and Landscape Designers, so no luck over there....
  3. Sorry, but that's a very lame way to respond to consumer requeriments, -"I want a simple thing on a Wall" -"Sorry no can do, try an half baked solution to fake the result" -"But all other BIM apps do it!" -"Sorry about that, but Vectorworks can't do, too complex"
  4. I totally agree with you, all of the major BIM apps have this option for, like forever, sometimes I wonder if Vectorworks is even trying to compete with them, even in the videos Vectorworks shows the benefits of Vectorwoks agains Autocad, a CAD software! or with Sketchup! Seems to be embarrased to do one showing off against any real BIM software! Stacking walls in Vectorwoks: Keep dreaming! Change control in Vectorworks: Not a chance! MEP in Vectorworks: Who does it ? Pivot doors in Vectorworks: What's that? Real projections of objects in Vectorworks. Ha! And I can keep going....
  5. Sadly, Vectorworks is mostly use for solo practitioners or very small firms, in the US is very rare to find large firms using Vectorworks, even in New Zealand, once Vectorworks was widely used, now most firms use Archicad, even long-time Vectorworks evangelist Jonathan Pickup is teaching Archicad and moving away from Vectorworks
  6. This is great! Awesome work!!!
  7. Well, the stacked walls have been requested many times over the years, yet nothing... big surprise
  8. If they are Roof Faces, use the Connect/Combine tool to connect Roof Faces
  9. Dont use the old Custom Stair in recent Vectorworks versions, will corrupt your file, usit only as reference and then ungroup it
  10. Check if the classes of the components are turned on in 3D
  11. Maybe as some of them suggested you should explode the object, lose all the attributes, and texture it
  12. The new Beam tool started with a lot of promises, but under delivered and let it to rot, you can even get a proper quantity take of from them, and the texturing is lame.
  13. Yes, the section line instances only works in Plan Views, the tool is still half baked, you will have to put it manually
  14. Photoshop has a bigger user base, Vectorworks use is dwinling in my country, so I don't see how things are going to be from now on
  15. So in sake of time is better to explode every "parametric" object to texture it properly? like the textures on hardscapes or in slabs? so is better to ungroup the geometries and texture them for the sake of time ? so Vectorworks is another Sketchup? I'm glad I don't do my renderings in Vectorworks...
