  1. Thanks Scott, I appreciate the recommendations. I completely forgot to check their offerings.
  2. Thanks for the quick response. I'm using a text field as a work around but that obviously opens itself up to human error. Hopefully that expanded capability will become an option in the near future. I can see type of resource working well for a number of situations in the entertainment field.
  3. I'd like to create a custom tag which has a field that tells me the total length of a connected truss system. Is this possible? I'm having trouble finding the field for "total length" in the options. Better yet, is there a way for a data tag to breakdown the quantity and length of the individual trusses in that connected truss system?
  4. Check out the VideoScreen 4 PIO from Landru Design. Andy's tools are indispensable for our industry.
  5. I just started having this issue on my last two projects. One of the symbols was supplied by a vendor and the other symbol I created from a simple extrude. I noticed the problem in sheet layer viewports that were created using the renderworks camera. If I make a similar view with manually and using a viewport crop, then it renders properly...until I update the view created by the RWC. Then it all goes wonky again. SB
  6. Thank you for the tip. I love Dropbox. Here's my new challenge. I'm using 2010 and my associate is using 2008. It seems there is no easy way to export the main project file to 2008 and have the referenced linked files automatically export out as well. Or is there? The batch convert dialog seems to only work the other direction.
  7. I read the help files and searched the forums, but I've had little luck with this topic. How do I email a coworker a project file to include my design layer viewport reference files? Do I send all the files together or can VW do that automatically in a package of some sort? If I'm to send the files, will my coworker need to recreate the reference links since the file locations will be different from the original setup?
  8. Well this is odd. I added a vertex to the legs and support and when I render I get 1 leg only.
  9. I had the wrong info on my previous signature
  10. Recently I've started having an issue with a chair model displaying correctly when using hidden-line mode. The model is very simple (the legs are just 3d polygon lines) as I sometimes need 16,000 or more of them in my drawings. When I render the legs and the back supports disappear. I started playing with the smoothing angle setting and if I set it to zero, the problem goes away. The issue with this setting is my curved trusses take on a faceted look which requires a smoothing angle of 10 or more. Any ideas or suggestions? Steve B.
  11. When I create a piece of curved truss, 3 of the 4 chords become very segmented. I've tried using different resolution settings to no avail. This did not happen with earlier versions of VW, so maybe this has something to do with Solidworks? The first image shows the resolution set to very high under Vectorworks/Preferences/3D/3d conversion res. The second is set to low. Any thoughts?
