  1. I'm having the same problem. VW Tech says it works on thieir's . Did you find a fix?
  2. 2015 and still no fully functional Swept Path Analysis Tool? What's the hold up?
  3. Does anyone know if/how to group hatches or symbols into folders in the Resource Browser or anywhere else for that matter? I frequently get DWG files from architects and engineers with hundreds of hatches and symbols that I hate to continually scroll through and just want to stick them in a folder.
  4. Jim W. Any updates or hope you can offer on a Swept Path Analysis tool?
  5. Its not working for me or is it..... It seems to export ok (.3ds file size 692bytes) but when I try to import .3ds into a new VW file (either as 3d mesh or groups as 3d polygons) I get what is shown in the second image after rendering. Shouldn't it import back into VW ok? I cant seem to attach the .3ds file but it is there and the VW jpg texture and mask are there too.
  6. Thanks barkest I'll give it a go.
  7. is there anyway to export a 3D object to SketchUp (say a 3D plant symbol or any 3D object)?
  8. problem solved. This tool is quite primitive and would not work for displaying a swept path of a particular vehicle in a formal drawing. Maybe somewhat useful in the design though.
  9. It would be really nice to select all my parking spaces and have them total. I could class them as to ACC, or compact or standard and quickly add them up by selecting all of one class.
  10. We really need a fully functional swept path analysis plug-in that allows you to select from a list for vehicles (or create your) and plot a path through a parking area or community. It needs to allow for and plot backing maneuvers, etc. For my own purposes it does not need to animate the movement or plot at speed but others have mentioned this. Please help. I would gladly pay a reasonable amount $250 for a added componetn if that's what it took. Thank you.
  11. I'm not able to get the vehicle or swept path to display with this tool...just the path centerline. Any secrets?
  12. Bricsturn, Simtra, Autoturn and Siteops all have good examples, For our purposes, basically we need to be able to create a path of compound and reverse curves through a parking lot or neighborhood of streets, using a selected vehicle (e.g. WB50, etc.). If the selection of vehicles is not comprehensive we need to be able to create custom ones. We need to then display the swept path limits and display/plot in 2D that "swept path" along with the vehicle at select positions. After that its all bells and whistles. Backing maneuvers are definitely a plus. Animation, well now that would be the best but non-essential. Any help is much appreciated. I would happily contribute to a 3rd party effort but can't justify a second CAD program. Accuracy, say 1' +/-
