    Vectorworks Library Disappeared

    Thank you. I have checked and the VW preferences are ticked so unfortunately this has not resolved the issue.

    Memory Matters

    Good to have the feedback. I went with VW recommendations and have 32 GB on my new pc to avoid crashes but VW still crashes frequently even on the simplest tasks and not just updating viewports.

    Vectorworks Library Disappeared

    After updating to SP 3 Vectorworks Library Disappeared! I have run repair tool and that did not help. Guess my only option is reinstall VW and content library and hope it comes back.

    pure white background

    I have been using vw to design my company logo - mjwarchitects. It was easy and resourceful for changing and playing around with the typefaces. For instance rotating W to make M. Cropping and converting into an image. Then added as footers to letters and emails. However, I have found the background is not pure white and this shows up when pasted on white back grounds. I have pasted the logo here. Perhaps it is not as noticeable here but it does show up as a slightly off white grey in emails. Maybe this because the background in vectorworks is off white? Is there a way of making the background in vw pure white?

    3D Wheelchair

    Justin, that would be great. I suggest you have a seated figure that could be added showing a person siting on the wheelchair.

    3D Wheelchair

    Thanks Mike but I was looking for free downloads. In fact these downloads are quite expensive and certainly my disabled client would not wish to pay extra especially when able bodied clients don't have to.

    3D Wheelchair

    Thanks for your help. Unfortunately not much luck so far. Importing from 3D warehouse sketch ups 2018 files are either damaged or corrupted. 2017 versions import but crashed vectorworks 2019 several times. Eventually have imported by not crashing but can only be seen in plan view in design layer but can be seen 3D in viewport. However model is not solid and is made of mesh lines only. Tried importing under different settings without much success. Trying Grab Cad but can not find a sketchup or vectorworks format. I will keep trying. Disappointed that vectorworks do not have a simple 3D or even 2D of a wheelchair in architectural objects - a discrimination!

    3D Wheelchair

    Any suggestions where to look and download a 3D wheelchair? I have checked vw's libraries and disappointing to find vw has not provided a 3D of a wheelchair. Or a person in a wheelchair. Or a person with a walking stick. Pretty essential as to satisfy regulations in the UK all buildings have to be designed for disabled use.

    Interior Design Symbols

    Did a wheelchair search and found this thread. Any progress? Any suggestions where to look and download? I have checked vw's libraries and disappointing to find that still after 3 years vw has not provided a 3D of a wheelchair. Or a person in a wheelchair. Or a person with a walking stick. Pretty essential as to satisfy regulations in the UK all buildings have to be designed for disabled use.

    to renew or not to renew (that is the question)

    Same here but our projects are smaller with files sizes typically 80,000 kb to 150,000 kb. A rendered vp similar to your drawing would take 4 to 6 minutes to render and update in medium detail in final quality renderworks with foreground hidden line with a sheet layer dpi 900. Frequently 'not responding' would appear and the quite often a crash. This is on a high spec pc. Nice drawing by the way.

    to renew or not to renew (that is the question)

    As a matter on interest, what are your typical file sizes? Generally do they contain 3D viewports? and renders? Are you mac or pc?
