  1. @zoomer I am looking at a 17inch laptop I need for VW2021 architects. I do 2d/3D and renderworks. So need a laptop that can perform well. I checked https://www.vectorworks.net/support/quality-tested-hardware and had my eye on the Lenovo Thinkpad 17. Unfortunately in the Netherlands is not available right now. In the 'same' price range I can get i.e. Acer ConceptD CN517-71P 72TO Intel core i7 9750H Hexa Core (12MB Cache, 2.6GHz) RAM 32GB NVIDIA Quadro RTX 3000 - Dedicated 6 GB 1000GB SSD NVMe, PCIe HDMI separate number keyboard or DELL XPS 17 9700, Intel® 10th gen. Core™ i7 Intel Core i7-10750H Hexa Core (12MB Cache, 2.6GHz) RAM16GB DDR4-SD 512GB SSD Intel UHD Graphics,NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti (4GB GDDR6) Intel core™-processoren, NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2060 NVIDIA ® GeForce® GTX 1650 Ti no HDMI no number keyboard ;( They both are not listed on the VW website Quality-Tested Hardware. Can you please advise?
  2. In the Vectorworks (2021)> Preferences I set the Smart Options Display to View/Draw - Building Shell - Previous Tools - 3D Modeling (clockwise) I am using a wacom tablet, so instead of using 'show with spacebar' and or 'middle mouse button' in Workspace Editor> Keys I set the a hotkey to 'Trigger Smart Options Display'. Now I noticed a bug: after leaving my computer alone for an hour or so the icons change (well flux me ∿∿ is this even possible?). It's not a big deal, cause while the icons are gone bonkers the functions are still in tact. Just wondering of any of you noticed this bug too? And maybe for Vectorworks something to look at?
  3. That's the idea. Working on a kitchen design for a bungalow. Do you mind I am using one of yours? ☕
  4. @Kevin K I managed to get this far in vectorworks, see rendered image. I'll send you the files.
  5. @Kevin K @Claes Lundstrom @zoomer I imported a *.obj. 'nespresso machine'. Along with the model I got the images of buttons, logo and also a bump file which I all imported in resource manager to apply. Doing this by hand since it doesn't come by importing the object. Also the model is one big mesh group containing lots of 3D polygons. So it's quite a lot of work to go into the group and select the 3D polygons that need to have the same texture (i.e. milk, transparent containers, shiny chrome parts etc). Is this normal way of handling an object file? Or is there a better approach?
  6. @Tom W. this is not standard but has nothing to do with local/ international version. You can program this in Tools> Workspaces> 'Edit current workspace' To find out how: Go to second page of Threat 'Isolate Object Command' (October 25, 2020). Hope you like it.
  7. You are right that's not a solution (just I noticed). I do use 'hide selected' in interior models to reach behind certain objects, which I find very useful.
  8. Here I have a model with walls, slabs, windows and no issue in perspective mode. I use same technique to model out elements in a second file using copy + paste in place as well. That works quicker 👍
  9. Hi, I just happen to see this post. I experience something similar. When certain classes are turned off (i.e. walls) it still is in the way using push/pull tool or even a 2D line or polygon tool to reach a surface. My way around it (although not a perfect solution) is to set 'Class Options' in Navigation Palette to 'Show others'. Then the tool will not snap to the hidden class.
  10. @Mark Aceto unfortunately I don't think it's possible to program alt-spacebar as zoom function (see image). Or do you know any other possibility?
  11. @Mark Aceto You have to make sure to press the spacebar before the control + click ones the second mode in the upper toolbar to set as default.

    Many Thanks @line-weight, that it! I set the Hole Cut > 'Square' in 'Object Info' palette of the Roof Face and it worked.

    Sorry for the confusion (I meant Oval instead of Cylinder) & Yes that's the thing I am not so happy with... I did Clip a 2D Oval Shape from the Roof Face so it stays a Roof Face indeed... But: @Kevin K A Leak or Gap is formed anyhow by punching an Oval through the angled Roof Face. Because the oval punches straight down and not perpendicular is the relationship to the Roof Face. And then as @Tom W. rightfully says Subtracting a Cylinder through a Roof Face will change the Roof Face into a Solid Subtraction.
