  1. Thanks, @Marcel Ostendorf for chipping in! Here's the direct link to the FAQ: https://en.extragroup.de/question/why-do-some-of-my-own-custom-screws-change-position-when-a-cabinet-is-reshaped/
  2. Hi Zeno, they are. As for all machinings that we model in interiorcad, you need to hide the class in 3D. See this FAQ: https://en.extragroup.de/question/why-are-my-millings-visible-in-hidden-line/
  3. Go to View -> Class Options. It should be Show/Snap/Modify Others. Is it?
  4. Hi Zeno! We do not show the profile currently in the part layout. We'll need to add that. Argh, yuck, we messed up the texture mapping badly for the profile. I'll need to get someone from engineering to look into that.
  5. It does. We supply CIX. We also interface with the more modern BSolid, also by Biesse.
  6. Not sure why they come up metric. When you first installed interiorcad you were asked to choose. Did you choose imperial then as well? Can you shoot me a document where you are getting metric units?
  7. Sure you want a barcode? I think QR codes are the preferred choice now but up to you. Both are no problem. Make sure you get "Cut Rite" for panel optimising. It should be supplied with your machine anyway if it's capable of nesting. We have an export for it so you get all your edgebanding information across as well. Cut Rite will create the graphic code from the information you get from interiorcad.
  8. Homag uses Woodwop as their machine software. We have been interfacing with Woodwop for 20+ years. No worries there. Will you be looking at a nesting-based or a point-to-point setup?
  9. That's kind of the point of interiorcad 🙂. It's very easy to do. You can use mm/inches or percentages or ratios even and you can define variable cells that will stretch and shrink. Have you done the tutorial in the Vectorworks University? It explains how it's done. Let me know if you have questions. https://university.vectorworks.net/course/index.php?search=interiorcad-basic-workflow-2021
  10. Ok, you need to turn off the contour class in the viewport. We can hide the contour in openGL and wireframe (we have assigned it a zero line thickness and a texture with 100% transparency so it does not show up but you can still select it) but not in hidden line.
  11. Of course I can tell you: use a Contour 3D object. Please make sure you have ticked the "3D Details" checkbox in the Object Info Palette of the cabinet object. The notch will not show up otherwise. You can skip the "convert to polygons"-part if you're not bothered about CNC output. I do that to get rid of the extra side. It is not required. Notch.mp4 Yes, the tutorial on the Vectorworks University. Glad you mention it. It is done: https://university.vectorworks.net/course/index.php?search=interiorcad-basic-workflow-2021. Enjoy! We have also updated the interiorcad manual: https://conf.extragroup.de:8443/im/latest
  12. You cannot use a hash placeholder when you use proportional division. It is not logical. Which proportion of the total height should the hash occupy? You have ratios of divisions so if you have a total of four boxes, you can input 1:2:2.4:3 but you cannot use a hash. You can use a hash if you use percentages: 30%;30%;10%;# will work for example.
  13. Happy to have a look what might be happening. As with all support questions, you can dramatically expedite the whole process by including a document or messaging me directly with it.
  14. Hi Zeno, here's the original file. Hope this helps. Recessed Handle.vwx
  15. Marionette placement appears to be broken in the 2021 cabinet. Thanks for the report, I have filed a bug.
  16. You need to check "Ridimensiona oggetto" and then make it stretch. You don't need to use a Marionette any more for this, did you know? You can use two rod bearings (as blue symbols) and an extrude (also a blue symbol) and interiorcad will reshape the extrude to fit the width. No clothes and no clothes hangers (yet), obviously...
  17. This works for me. Did you have "Convert to Group" checked on creation by any chance?
  18. Can you show us what you have in mind? Maybe we can integrate it or maybe you can already do it.
  19. @Daisy Y I have just finished a 11-part tutorial to get you up to speed with exactly how these things are done. It will soon appear on a screen near you. Stay tuned until mid-March for more news on this.
  20. That's interesting. I don't think converting drawers into symbols is a good idea, they need to live inside the main symbol as groups/plugin objects. You can attach the file here if you like and I will have someone take a look.
  21. Hi Daisy, it's easily possible with interiorcad's built-in "Edit / Adapt Fitting Libraries" command. Go to interiorcad and then Fittings: From the next dialog, you choose feet and mounting plates (and, if required, accessories and / or glides). When you choose each command for the first time, interiorcad will create a new document with a sample fitting. When you save it, it will be placed in your user folder ( /Users/<your user name>/Library/Application Support/Vectorworks/2021/Libraries/Defaults/Custom Part/Leg Feet/Leg Feet - Custom.vwx) or, if you're on Windows in C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\Nemetschek\Vectorworks\2021\Libraries\Defaults\Custom Part\Leg Feet\Leg Feet - Custom.vwx (or Leg Mounting Plates). Edit the sample fitting geometry and replace the sample geometry with your own geometry. Add drillings if required. make sure you don't ungroup anything. Work inside the groups because there are Vectorworks Record Formats attached to the enclosing groups. If you do it like that you'll be fine. If it does not work, which is to be expected, because it never works the first time around, 😁 , upload what you tried here (the documents from your user folder) and I will have a look.
  22. I have uploaded four new videos to our Youtube channel. I hope interiorcad users will find these useful.
  23. Only if you use the dialog (in the full version), right? I have found that using the spreadsheet it can be duplicated. Anyway, best to play it safe and not have a duplicate combination there. What I meant to say was: You can put anything in there. That column is not used for the current system any more. it is a legacy field.
