  1. Thanks Eric! The reason I was wondering is because this behaviour is not what I thought I was used to seeing... Apparently it's either my mind or my eyes playing tricks on me... or wishful thinking taking over
  2. Hi Last few months the 3D Display option Cut and Fill of the Site Model is acting erratic. Instead of the usual 3D model it shows a flat surface. OR am I becoming erratic? Or is there something else going on? Thanks! Carol Issue DTM.vwx
  3. Hi Julia "About the Fence/Rail tool is there a way to only add lengths that are multiple of the length of one unit. For example, the unit is 2,5m long, to only do fence lines that have a length multiple of 2,5m that doesn't cut units of fences or barriers?" I believe what you are looking for you can find in the Railing/Fence Settings. In the Post window under Arrangement you can opt for Fixed Distance. Nevertheless you will need to keep in mind that you draw your fence with lines being a multiple of 2,5m as the tool doesn't force the fixed distance while drawing. So maybe another tool/workflow would better suit your needs. Maybe create a symbol and use Duplicate Along Path with a fixed distance of 2,5m, Tangent to path - you can than count the symbols. Still will need some finetuning the positioning... or Tom' suggestion...
  4. Hi Is it right to assume that the colors in the xml file are coded using the decimal CMYK format? After experimented trying to make a custom color palette by just working within the xml file, it seemed at first that adding HEX data into the xml got 'translated' properly within Vectorworks - until... some HEX codes did not get interpreted correctly. What would be the fastest way in your opinion to create a color palette based on HEX data? Thanks Carol
  5. Thank you Michael for putting your time into this useful feedback! I had indeed made a post (as a unique symbol) and thought I would be able to count the symbols. Not 🙂 The suggestion to put them in a separate class is something I had not considered. Thanks again!@michaelk
  6. Hi Is it possible to create a Report which counts the amount of Posts used in a Railing/Fence object. I have tried to create a report that counts the Symbol (in the case a custom symbol is used for Post) - with no luck. I also tried to see if there were records related to Post Postion - as the window that allows you to edit the posts does reproduce the amount of posts used... Also no such luck 🙂 What also would be nice is a way to reproduce the name of the type of Railing/Fence used - the Symbolname used as can be found via Settings > General > General configuration Thanks! Kind regards Carol
  7. Hi Any prospects on when or if there will be a release where the GIS tool supports Web Feature Service (WFS)? Thanks! Carol
  8. Hi We are looking for a way to calculate and visualize the Cut and Fill for each separate stage within the site modification process - this from an ARCHITECT's viewpoint. The theoretical approach is: Step 1 - Removal of the existing landscape As the existing site consists of hardscapes and softscapes these areas need to be removed first. a) Calculation: Based on a 2D plan one can calculate in the worksheet the amount of soil/debris that needs to be removed by multiplying the area by the depth. b) Visualization: In the 2D plan of the existing landscape the polygons can be converted to 3D polys with their Z-height set according to the depth as estimated in step 1-a. (Before converting to 3D polys the polygons are offset by a distance of fe. 10 cm) This results in a Site Model which can be used as a base to start the actual Cutting and Filling. Step 2 - 'Cutting' the site according to the proposed design - Draw the Grade limit for each hole/trench - Draw the Pad per hole/trench. Name the Pad in the OIP. => for calculation: each Pad can be separately listed by name in the worksheet showing Cut volume - in the case of more than 1 layer subsoil type one can draw a second pad within the boundaries of the first pad - name this Pad appropriately and add this in the calculation for differentiation Step 3 - Forming/pouring footings and foundations Within the Architect module the option to use a wall as a site modifier is not available. Footings and foundations are drawn using the Wall tool. These can be added to the calculation sheet if needed. The question 🤨 Step 4 - 'Filling' the holes/trenches around the foundations What would be an convenient way to draw the fills? 3D Modelling tools? Which properties of the 'fill objects' can then be used to add to the calculation worksheet? By updating the worksheet subsequently it could be the 'tool' to check what will result as spoil etc. Thanks for reading this through! Thanks for any thoughts or pointing me on mistakes in reasoning - for anything helping me forward... Carol Site cut and fill.vwx
