  1. Does anyone know if it's possible for a curtain wall to have the framing and panels on only one side, and the other side just be a full panel with no segments?
  2. Does anyone know if you can texture a particular panel separately from the others in a curtain wall? Thanks, Scott
  3. I am looking for help from my architectural friends. I am trying to redraw an existing building. It is warehouse that looks to be tilt wall. It has concrete pilasters every 24 feet. Usually, when I draw a pilaster, I always make them Architectural Only with Half Break which allows me to attach the pilaster to the interior edge of the wall and set the width and depth as needed. For the sake of just trying to properly learn how to use this tool, I am trying to figure out how to use them with Structural and Architectural settings. Maybe I am not understanding the proper way to use them, but I'm struggling with the fact that the structural part of the pilaster doesn't allow me to attach to an edge. They seem to have loci that are offset from the center, and determine the alignment of the pilaster. Please see my attached images to see what I am talking about. I am trying to achieve a 12 in wide X 12 inch deep structural concrete pilaster to the wall so that the exterior of the wall is unaffected, and the pilaster protrudes out from the interior of the wall 12 inches. Then, some of them would have a 2inch wider architectural exterior of the pilaster to match the wall style they are attached to. None of the tutorials I've found about pilasters, do not really talk about all the settings and various ways to place them. Thanks.
  4. When I use the Radius Selection Mode of the sculpting tool to push and pull the site model surface, is there a way to anchor the 2D boundary so that the boundary edge stays at zero?
  5. What is the node I should use to make input be based on the 3D object I have selected?
  6. @sbarrettyour post says "see video". Should we see a video attached? I'm not seeing a link or anything.
  7. What about just making the recessed wall a symbol and dropping into the actual wall? You could still make a new Wall Style for the recessed wall to help the Top/Plan view. I was a little lazy in this example. The inserted wall should be thinner so as to flush on the back part of the wall. The nice thing here is you can still adjust the height in OIP, and/or edit the symbol if needed.
  8. Try this. It worked for me. forum.vectorworks.net/index.php?/topic/46576-vision-2017-issues-after-installing-sp2-mac-only
  9. Upon creating a new Project, I notice that the username for the initial administrator is grayed out and not editable. Where is the username coming from? My PC username? Windows? Vectorworks install? I'm asking because, for whatever reason, the name is spelled wrong.
  10. There is a known issue with manually selected Vision symbols in the Fixture Mode field not holding. There is a workaround, but keep in mind, it could affect other things, like Lightwright. Currently, Fixture Mode field references the Instrument Type field. Fixture Mode should automatically be assigned based on the Instrument Type, but the problem is that the symbol names must match exactly. If the Instrument Type reads: VL3500 Wash, but the Vision Symbol reads: Vari*Lite 3500 Wash, it will leave the Fixture Mode blank. If, before you plot the symbol, you edit the Instrument Type name of the symbol to read exactly the same as the Vision Symbol, then Vectorworks will automatically fill the Fixture Mode with the matching Vision Symbol. You should even see multiple mode choices in the drop-down menu of the Fixture Mode. Once again, changing the Instrument Type name could cause issues with Lightwright, since that program references the same field.
  11. When in doubt, use the search bar. It will locate whatever symbol you are for quicker than you could browse yourself.
  12. An updated manual for Vision (They dropped the ESP) is being worked on. Vision Symbol selection is no longer in the Edit Vision Data menu. This is only for editing things like Gobo Wheels and Color Wheels and such. The Fixture Mode field is the place to choose Vision symbols for your selected symbols.
