  1. What our world needs now is an International Online University Architectural Program featuring VectorWorks, et. al. .
  2. Very excellent ... and constructive. Please consider adding the appropriate Column and Elevation Markers to clarify the presentation.
  3. Indeed ... better late than never... as they say. Hope he takes a good look at the long wish list on this topic : )
  4. perhaps a new reference > Drawing file, then a new reference >Viewport. In other words.. since the ReferenceFilePath was changed by renaming of the " Drawing File", it is mandatory to reestablish the primary FilePathReference prior to utilizing any secondary ViewPortReferences to it.
  5. Consider this workflow : 1) A&E drawings + details for approvals & permits. 2) Shopdrawings from suppliers & fabricators ( based on approved planset ) with revisions to planset noted. 3) Revised A&E planset with new plans ( if req'd ), elev, sections, details ... and 3D modeling ( for interferences ) based on Shopdrawings. Steps 2-3 are electronic... DXF/DWG/PDF documents via servers. Actually, VW is proficient at this.
  6. Try the old standby to halt those unnecessary FQRW rendering operations > cmd '.'
  7. Try searching these forums. There are numerous tutorials , expositions, and examples posted.
  8. Precisely ... right ! StairTool works well for settling in the design parameters... then .. nothing beats good ol' 3D Modeling and ViewPorts. Good job ... Tightly wrapped ...
  9. When the TEME take over Earth ( we are the MEME ) ... this may be their architectural style !

That smell of energy is more intense... I had my super magnifier with me this time so I did a close up on one of the structures and found more of the strange generators at nano level... It seems the whole place is constructed of these things. You can see three of them, a little bit different in shpe. I have too little time to document everything down here, have to go up to my safeplace.. I Will be back!
  10. Explanation with images & links to provocative galleries: What is a Mandelbox, by Tom Lowe [img:left]http://www.fractalforums.com/gallery/1/1127_04_03_10_11_45_06.jpeg[/img]
  11. You can utilize the Loft Tool : Create Rectangle Profile>ConvertToNURBSCurve>rotate Z=30?>move>Z=6", repeat. See example:
  12. This fly-through within the Mandelbox-Menger is especially provocative... kool sound track, too ! http://www.hd-fractals.com/mandelbox-pixel-blender-render/
  13. Have you checked the XYZ+angle coordinates of the Camera ?
  14. Perhaps Sean was referring to vectorial geometry as compared with raster image. Of course, theres AcrobatPro Extended : http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobatproextended/
  15. There's an explosion of incredible 3D fractals on the net these days: 3D Mandelbox Stunning Mandelbox flight of fantasy Links to Fractal software
  16. Wes .. your work is unique & provocative ... you have the ' Gift' ... nodoubtaboutit ! Your image is somewhat similar in style to one of the famous PovRay Award Winners. The Wet Bird [img:left]http://www.oyonale.com/image.php?code=464[/img]
  17. or use a vector program like Adobe Illustrator or the wonderfully free Inkscape to convert those profiles to vectors and then export as DXF or EPS prior to import into Vw12.5.
  18. One other option to explore: If the files are posted to your server with a secure User certificate required for downloading, then you can assign privileges and track processes. If legal recourse is require, then your server logs will provide the necessary verification that said User accessed your file system via password authentication on said date, and then downloaded said files prior to selling them on eBay.
  19. Are you seeing an Open Document... in other words is there a white sheet on your desktop ?
  20. Link to > Vectorscript file >Geo_Syn_1132.01D_LCD.text.zip Download the Geodesic Tutorial File Decompress >Import>Vectorscript This tutorial has the 31 Great Circle Arcs of the Primary Polyhedra. Manipulate the ObjectClasses to view the various configurations as described in Synergetics Vol.2/1132.01D This should help all those who are interested in Geodesics. Method#1=Tetra rotations method#2=Pentagonal rotations of the LowestCommonDenominator LCD Tetrahedra Spheric = 120 LCD Includes brief notations describing the duplications-reflections-rotations This is about as simple as I can make : )
  21. Here's the image showing the 120 Tetra LCD Spheric
  22. See this post for a Geodesic tutorial: http://techboard.nemetschek.net/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=141920#Post141920

  24. Martiijn-It appears you want to create a basic geodesic strut wall with glass panels. It's actually fairly easy to do with Vw as long as you follow a few basic rules of spheric-trig. 1) Decide on the primary propagator: tetra,cube,penta,octa ( combination ) 2) Then decide on the rotation : vertex, strut , or face 3) Chose the required frequency of subdivision 4) Chose the geodesic Type 1 or Type 2 , depending on the edge subdivision Then : Beginning creating each triangle as a symbol and rotating it into position.
