  1. You are lucky ūüôā This was already fixed for SP2.
  2. Thank you for the report, @Matt Hagen This delay appears to be due to the export of a worksheet data object with lots of elements, which for some reason is not visible in the drawing. We will work to optimize the process of export. Until you have the fix, you might create a copy of the document, remove the WinDoor/VWI-Door/Window Schedule-All Layers worksheet from the Resource Manager, which is anyway not visible on the drawing (see attached image) and export to DWG. Thanks, Nina
  3. Hello @Victor S, Exporting the attached to your post document as it is results in creation of the Slab objects only in the IFC file - because Slabs have their own IFC data already attached to them. For all of the rest custom objects which you add in the document - like the extrudes in this example - you have to set the appropriate IFC data. You might want to read http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/index.htm#t=VW2020_Guide%2FIFC%2FIFC_format_interoperability.htm and more specifically http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/index.htm#t=VW2020_Guide%2FIFC%2FAssigning_IFC_data_to_objects.htm Hope this helps, Nina
  4. @michael john williams, this is what the regular AutoCAD 2020 gives to me when I try to open the DWG there: I do not know what AutoCAD version is using the surveyor, but there are some custom objects in the DWG. That is why we show the dialog in the beginning of the import too. For this exact DWG I did not see any graphics differences whatever option I chose from the above dialog - to not show proxy graphics, to show it or to show bounding boxes. Imported in Vectorworks graphics is identical to the graphics inside AutoCAD too.
  5. In this case you could just ignore the message. We use some data to recognize whether the DWG is saved by a Civil 3D, but filtering might need some tuning. Can we, please, have the DWG file to check why we show the message?
  6. There is no DWG import fault - we just want to inform you, that DWG files, directly saved by Civil 3D, may contain pure Civil 3D objects, like our plugin objects, which a regular DWG reader might not be able to present properly - i.e. we will receive as info only the object bounding boxes and will create them instead of the real graphics. This will be a correct import, but may not be what you expect to see. From inside the Civil 3D there is a possibility to export the drawing as DWG - and when this command is used instead of the direct save as, complex Civil 3D objects will be saved with their full graphics and we will import it. Of course, if there are no such objects, import will be absolutely identical in both cases.
  7. Please, check your import options - you might have chosen to import the DWG as a reference.
  8. Thank you for sharing the document, Matt! I can confirm the delay when working with the document. From what I see there, you have either imported the DWG in an already existing Vectorworks document, or have updated it later adding more staff. Or you might have imported multiple DWG files - probably 267 according to the number of Design layers? The rest of the things, which I found: - The document contains nearly 4 735 000 objects, screen plane; - Created symbols are 97623; There are also lots of groups; - Imported hatches are actually groups with lines - Vectorworks imports hatches as hatches, does not decompose them - so probably this is how the DWG file has been exported by ArchiCAD; - Seems that dimensions are also presented as groups of lines and text - by default we import dimensions as dimensions, except if the linear scale parameter is different than 1.0 or you have explicitly chosen to import them as groups; - There are 350-400 classes and 71 sheet layers; I will create a performance issue and will attach this document there so that our engineers could look at it and work on improvements. Thank you, Nina

    Export PDF

    Please, try with changed Update options. Does it help?
  10. @NeedHelp, Publish to PDF is not allowed in Fundamentals. I am attaching a link to the Publish functionality help page: http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/index.htm#t=VW2020_Guide%2FPrintPublish%2FBatch_publishing.htm%23CSH_6
  11. Try "This scale" from the Advanced DWG/DXF Import options and set the scale to 1:500. DWG import always creates a new design layer with a calculated scale ("Fit to Page", default choice) or the specified scale ("This Scale" option).
  12. After Compose, especially for arcs and circle-like objects, you could use Poly Smoothing --> Arc Smoothing or Radius Smoothing; In the other cases you could also try Drafting Aids --> Simplify Polys...
  13. Hello, This is a known Windows only problem. Our engineers are already working to fix it. Thank you for reporting!
  14. Hello @OliviaD, Unfortunately the attached DWG file is not a valid file, it can not be opened or recovered in AutoCAD too. Do you know how the file has been created? Thank you, Nina
