  1. @Rob Books Is there a way yet to connect vertical or angled pipe to a truss system? The Insert Connection tool only allows top or bottom connections. I'm looking for a trick to side mount pipe to a truss system. VE?
  2. I believe this forum channel was created a few years ago, when SubD modeling was first introduced. I'm not completely sure, but my feeling is most Vectorworks users(especially those who are not familiar with other 3D modeling programs) are not comfortable with SubD modeling yet. It can be a little overwhelming, but it is extremely versatile. It will only get better as more improvements are made to it.
  3. Yep, and I now know how to extrude more than one at a time. Select the edges or faces and then hold Alt while dragging a coordinate handle.
  4. Yes, I am referring to Extrude Mode in Subdivision modeling. You can extrude faces and edges. I was just wondering if there was any trick to extruding multiple edges at once. Apparently there is not...yet. Scott
  5. Is it possible to extrude more than one edge at the same time? If I select more than one edge, the moment I choose the Extrude tool, they deselect.
  6. 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?
  7. Does anyone know if you can texture a particular panel separately from the others in a curtain wall? Thanks, Scott
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. What is the node I should use to make input be based on the 3D object I have selected?
  11. @sbarrettyour post says "see video". Should we see a video attached? I'm not seeing a link or anything.
  12. 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.
