  1. Yes, the laser cutter is actually a 'printer', so we print the file to the UCP driver in order to select material settings, etc. from within the software.
  2. Hi Gunther, Thanks for getting back to me, wasn't able to answer any sooner... We use the software UCP provided by our supplier, Universal Laser Systems. As they told us, it is not possible to have a more 'friendly' rounding in the laser thickness, due to machine settings. Hope you can help!
  3. @inikolova wasn’t there at some point in the early Nomad days a ‘how to use this app’ intro when opening the app?
  4. Hi Peter, if you’d like to share designs with clients you can send them the QR code you can generate when exporting as webview (vgx). The client only needs to download the Nomad app on their device to scan your QR code. No need for them to create an account within the app. This method is exactly how I review my students interior designs. Ahwait, I have an account myself. I mean: exactly how my colleagues would be able to review the designs… 😇 HTH! Cheers, JB
  5. Was mainly the browser being used by their clients. Changing to Chrome had the models navigate smoother compared to other browsers. The QR link with exporting to webview also helped in presenting with Nomad. Question: where did the shadow option go when using 2022 for exporting webiews? I couldn’t find it. Maybe somewhere in the Settings, Legacy Options?
  6. @Johan de Groot • LYVR is it okay if I give you a ring tomorrow (dus op donderdag 21/7) to discuss this? Same timezone & language might help (not affiliated to VW, just a happy customer & Nomad user 🤓🤙) #nerdalert Cheers, JB
  7. Hi, where do you save the file? Is it opened on a cloud, desktop, server…?
  8. Wouldn’t it be awesome to actually 3d-scan the room/building/object from within Nomad & then upload (import) it into your drawing… Nomads most recent version has seperate options for uploading photos to generate a 3d polygon out of it, as well as an option for making a lidar pointcloud. Sooo… why not combine them all & merge them into an option to create a 3d-scan. Using nothing more than your phone with a lidar sensor 🤪 *types request on wishlist for Nomad 12*
  9. Hi @Kazemester, what is the procedure you follow when using a pointcloud for an interior design? Do you add 3d polys to the walls of the room, or do you leave the area as is?
  10. Hello, if I want the line thickness value set to 0,025mm in VW2022 SP3 (actually: in any version...) it jumps back to 0,03mm. I need that specific line weight in order to be able to send output to our laser cutting machines. Any thoughts on finding the right setting to have more than 2 decimals in line thickness? Spoiler, it's not in: Attributes Palette > Pen > Set Thickness (only rounding to 2 decimals) Document Settings > Document Preferences > Dimensions (i can only change thickness for the slash), Document Settings > Units (that for dims, not thickness), Tools > Options > Preferred Line Thickness (only rouding to 2 decimals) Tools > Organization > Classes > Edit > Graphic Attributes > Pen Thickness And I do not want to use Illustrator for it (as is our regular workflow for now). The less applications our students need to master, the better it is for their creative energy... 😉 Hope you can help me out here!
  11. Hi Dave, your tagline got me curious (Renderworks starting guides are always needed, hehe) but I think the link has changed? It returned a 404 on my side... Cheers, JB
  12. Hello, is it possible to run a video on a screen WITHIN a AR/VR/pano presentation? And if so, how do I achieve that? Regards, JB
  13. Hi there, just noticed the other day in VW2002-NLedu that in the 'gumbal' the green and blue are 'flipped' compared to the colors in the XYZ, see screen shot below. Does anybody know why this is?
  14. As hardware improves dramatically (M1 on both phone, tablet and desktop very soon) I see awesome apps that can do crazy stuff — just take a look at PhotoCatch. They upload extremely detailed scans to platforms like Sketchfab without all the 50k hardware others need to get the same results, hehe… 😇 I know of course we can ex/import them via obj and all, but why not raise the bar & have SketchFab as a (premium?) library in your Resource Manager? Cheers, JB
  15. Hi Marcel, thanks voor het compliment. 😎 This tiny house was built as graduation project within the study programme for Wood work enigineering (badly translated, but you can contact me via DM so I can explain more in detail I actually mean ‘Houttechniek’ by that). Groet, JB
  16. Going from Augmented Reality to Real Reality. Built by students as their graduation project. It will be used as a promotion tool on trade shows, etc. Other departments will create the tailor made furniture, upholstery and interior designs. The roof will have solar panels for small machinery like a 3D printer which will be used for making scale models of furniture and interior designs. Thought you might like this. IMG_5371.MP4
  17. Segments in OpenGL renders have to do with its prefs and segmentation quality, right? It’s not the source object that converts it to a 64 segments circle. If you select it rendered, that orange line will show the original object.
  18. Thanks, that’s what we do already: red 255/0/0 is cutting through, green 0/255/0 is rasterizing and blue 0/0/255 is engraving. But all lines need to be 0,025mm exactly. I tried what you suggested & entered 0,025 which was rounded to 0,03. Still the laser won’t accept it…
  19. Hi all, the discussion here is mostly dimensions being (too) accurate, but what if I want to have a @line-weight (pun intended) with more than 2 decimals? We have laser cutters here that DEMAND us to provide line thicknesses of EXACTLY 0,025mm. If I try this in VW it always ends up in 0,03mm - which is no good for the machine. Of course I can go back to using autocad or illustrator, but hey... Hope there is some hidden feature to automagically add that third digit to lines! Regards, JB HMC_LAB laser 600x300mm.vwx
  20. Can we please have the option to use the USDZ format to import 3D object scans? iOS is able to use lidar for the scanning of objects. Using apps like Photocatch gives my students in the very near future (as of iOS 15 & macOS 12) a lot of flexibility in importing objects they can’t find online. As an addition to importing USDZ, directly exporting files to the AR-standard USDZ will save time as well, since we now have to use Simlab et al for it…
  21. Not sure about your standards for ‘robust’ and ‘consistent’ yet, but you could take a look at their Cloud Services, web view export and the Nomad app for AR and VR projection here: https://cloud.vectorworks.net/products/
  22. In Preferences you can set the quality of presentations. Dont know the exact wording, but somewhere in the View tab you can change it from Best Quality to a setting with Good quality and more compatibility. Had good result when changing this setting with more complex drawings.
  23. Sorry, wrong wording, translated it from Dutch… I meant where you change Snap to Grid, Snap to Object, etc. I think I should have mentioned it as Constraints Palet…?
