  1. @markdd Thanks for the response! That's a good idea. Also thanks for mentioning the mirror opposite 2d view, I'd seen that but haven't really made use of it yet, maybe I'll check that out more.
  2. Hello all, I have been working on creating some Heat Recovery Ventilation (HRV) 2d/3d symbols for projects, and I think I have generally got the workflow down well enough but there is one aspect that is a bit annoying in terms of time/steps it takes. To make these HRV symbols, I model the whole thing - ducts included - in 3d, and then use the "Generate 2d from 3d Components" command to create the 2d views of the HRV symbol for plans/sections. My issue is that as far as I can tell, I have to individually switch to each different 2d view and then "Generate" the 2d symbol for each separate view. This is a bit frustrating when I have 5 different views (top, left, right, front, and back) that I want to update anytime after I make alterations to the 3d symbol. Maybe this is a minor complaint, but it would be really nice if there was a way to generate all 2d views from the 3d model with one command/click instead of having to do each one individually. I'm sure this is something Vectorworks could easily handle as it shouldn't be much/any extra work for the program, and it would save the user time and effort. Is there any way to do something like this already that I am missing or haven't discovered yet? And if not, it would be really nice to have that functionality added. Again, maybe this is something of a niche issue, but I'm sure there are others out there who would benefit from something like this. I suppose there might be a way to do this via scripts? It might be relatively straightforward but I don't have any experience creating or even using scripts, so I have no idea how that would be done. Any thoughts? Thank you very much.
  3. Hi, I am trying to use Energos to test design options for a small house and while I have been able to set it up correctly (I think), I have not been able to figure out how to have multiple different Energos labels for different design iterations in the same file. I have not been able to find anything online about this, is it possible? To further explain, I want to run 3 separate analyses, one for the existing, one for new v1, and one for new v2. I would like to have a sheet for each version and have the correct Energos label for that version on the sheet layer. I can place a label for any one of the iterations, but when I go back into Energos to switch it to another iteration, the old label updates as well, when I don't want it to change. Is there any way to have multiple different Energos analyses in the same document? It seems like it's only set up to handle one design at a time which is unfortunate. I'd like to avoid having to create multiple files for each different design iteration if possible. Thank you very much!
