    Structural & Non Structural Groups

    Hi Alan I believe it is the "Merge with Structural Objects in sections" Check box that controls this

Thanks for the link @Anne Here's an update from me half a year later (-: We still use a Mac mini for file sharing and homepage hosting but has moved all other services off the server. email / contacts / calendars / is office365 document sharing to clients and contractors - sharepoint / one drive Wiki is moved to sharepoint and was quite easy to learn and is not far from the wiki on our old apple server. Backup is Crashplan

    Check Out And Release

    Hi I guess you have had a crash and some items was checked out, or you have been connected with another computer without releasing the file. You could go to "tools/custom release" to release other users like the other you. Hope this helps

    Twinmotion Plugin + Sync

    @twk it is! Selected a few different rocks and painted out on the surface. The model got quite heavy with the added geometry and I learned that I should have finished the buildings first and done the rocks later (-:

    Twinmotion Plugin + Sync

    During the process i had to reimport the buildings several times to reflect changes, and apply textures again. A plugin between VW and TM would be super and save a lot of time in presentations like this

    Twinmotion Plugin + Sync

    We did a competition proposal in January with VW and Twinmotion. It was a quick proposal with a DTM and some apartments building consisting of a few symbols repeated. It was fascinating how easy TM was to learn and to use, and how quickly one could make decent views with an nice atmosphere and weather effects. The whole process was well inside the free demo phase offered by TM. We did not get the project (-; Here is a link to a video:

    Project Sharing - Does this really work in the wild?

    We are using a Macmini as a server with an extarnal raidbox with ssd disks for the files. We don't have much trouble with this setup.

    Project Sharing - Does this really work in the wild?

    We are using Project sharing all day in every project needing more than one person. Usually the model file is shared and layer referencing to plot files for each phase of the project. Sections and elevations is mad in the plot files from the model file. Once in a while there seems to be some connectivity problems and it is usually solved with saving a copy of the newest working file to the serves as a regular vwx file, then changing the new file to a project file.
  13. @Jim Wilson Just curious, where can you see the signature? How do we make signatures?
