  1. Sadly, Vectorworks has neglected those areas for Architects and Landscape Designers, so no luck over there....
  2. 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"
  3. 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....
  4. 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
  5. This is great! Awesome work!!!
  6. Well, the stacked walls have been requested many times over the years, yet nothing... big surprise
  7. If they are Roof Faces, use the Connect/Combine tool to connect Roof Faces
  8. Dont use the old Custom Stair in recent Vectorworks versions, will corrupt your file, usit only as reference and then ungroup it
  9. Check if the classes of the components are turned on in 3D
  10. Maybe as some of them suggested you should explode the object, lose all the attributes, and texture it
  11. 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.
  12. Yes, the section line instances only works in Plan Views, the tool is still half baked, you will have to put it manually
  13. 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
  14. 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...
  15. That's correct, they keep pushing new features leaving the ones that matter shelved, take the horizontal section Viewport, is still half baked, the stair tool, no stacking walls, and so on and now the susbscription only scheme.
  16. Well, yes, unless Autodesk bite the bullet and release a Mac version of Revit, and then that's all for the rest 😂
  17. Seems Vectorworks is pushing the faithful users to Archicad, that's the only one with perpetual licenses and a MEP solution for small firms... thank you Vectorworks.
  18. So the texturing is still so bad you had yo destroy your plug-in objects to be able to texture them? What a waste!
  19. You can try the WinDoor plug in, is free now, it has a ton of configuration for doors and windows, put our native window and door tool to shame
  20. You can use the ancient Wall Framer command, but if you are looking for a parametric way to do it, like in any other software out there, you are out of luck, you will need to do it by hand, and remodel it every time the desing changes, wasting a lot of time in the process. Even sketchup has a great tool for wall framing
  21. There is another stair the Stair tool can't model (mild shock), I'll have to model it by hand and waste a ton of time... sigh We really need a more parametric Stair tool..
  22. The www.vectordepot.com page don't load anymore.... Has anyone have the plugin now?
  23. Sadly, the website don't load anymore, other platforms have tools for this situation, in Vectorworks we still have nothing
  24. Another year has passed and our wall tool in Vectorworks stil don't to this basic function, all the other BIM apps out there are are doing that for years now... lets hope someday in the future, maybe in the 2030 version?
  25. The HVAV tools are very poorly implemented and negleted in Vectorworks, you should try to model it yourself
