    you could probably use the stair tool and subtract the taper og cut with the knife.

    Lookup from worksheets in text objects?

    Thats right, I meant when you make the room only. I guess if you have classed the walls systematically, you could theoretically turn off interior walls and click once for the apartment. We draw the apartments manually DomC has made some marionette scripts to make the process more automatic :

    @taavilooke If you use the bucket mode you can click inside walls and the space is created automatically

    Lookup from worksheets in text objects?

    @taavilooke I would use space objects to show area of apartments. We usually have three sets of spaces classed in three different classes, Net room, gross apartment and total floor area.

    Best Bang for the buck Imac vs Imac Pro

    Jeff We have bought two I mac pros last years 3.0/10 core and 3.2/8 core both with the vega 64 16 gb vram. I have used both and I don't find much difference in day to day VW and twinmotion work. ( We are replacing Mac pros from 2010, 3.3/6 core some are still in use) I like that we have more options now for Vectorworks, maxed out iMac´s, Imac pros and soon Mac pros.

    Twinmotion Plugin + Sync

    Hi @grant_PD It depends on the work you are doing but i think it is easier to add the light in TM, at least for architectural renderings. Not sure if lights will export from VW via FBX, maybe @JRA-Vectorworks-CAD knows?

    Curtain Wall Tool

    You can set the 2d appearance as you like. Here is the file as 2018. This question is how detailed do you need it to be? If the drawings has the right information for the building workers to build it wouldn't it be enough? Kind regards Hans-Olav H-3000 v2018.vwx

    Curtain Wall Tool

    What about using a regular wall and making a texture with transparency for the space between the wooden parts? It could be precise in plan, give a realistic appearance in sections and elevations, efficient for quantity takeoff. Could even have a symbol for the metal parts if you need to place them precisely. Just my 2 ISK 8-:

    Scale issues

    Hi Karen @Karen Violet and George You could import again and choose meters instead of millimeter or choose modify / scale and check entire drawing Kind regards Hans-Olav
  13. @TomKen use the youtube help
  14. @zoomer @Taproot The missing geometry that sometimes happen to VW PIO's like slabs, roofs and others, is cased by flipped face normals and are easy fixed in TM. You can use the material picker to select the texture and under "more..." you can make it double-sided. In fact you can select all material in the imported file and make them all double sided in one click.
  15. I have been using Twinmotion for a while. ( bought it at full prize (-: ) Its really intuitive and gets good result after just a few hour work. To get really good renderings and a certain mood you need to fiddle with the lighting settings. Still its quite nice straight out of the box and the fast rendering makes it easy to experiment
