  1. The Vectorworks University is a good place to start. Here is an 11-part course on interiorcad. Before you start with it, I urge you to complete the basic training for Vectorworks first though. https://university.vectorworks.net/course/index.php?search=interiorcad-basic-workflow-2021
  2. Vectorworks basic knowledge is a good foundation to becoming a successful interiorcad user. Get in touch with Vectorworks UK to get info on who can teach you. Once you have the basics under your belt, give me a shout and I'll teach you what you need to know for interiorcad. A word of advice: as tempting as it might appear - avoid going down the easy path. Sketchup is great software but it is not for what you want. We did not choose Vectorworks randomly as a foundation for interiorcad 😉
  3. Hi @sol117 interiorcad is perfectly suited to bespoke cabinetry because it combines the flexibility of Vectorworks with a state of the art parametric cabinet and powerful 3D custom parts. In fact the top UK bespoke kitchen designers and manufacturers are already switching to interiorcad because of its unrivalled combination of presentation/visualisation, costing/material takeoffs and CNC interface. With most modern CNC workcentres, you won't even need an additional middleware. You can output your 3D designs straight to your machines. Don't worry too much about the learning curve. As you are correctly pointing out, interiorcad is used by the vast majority of companies in Germany now and we are only getting started in the rest of the world, with the UK being our first international stepping stone - with some happy customers. You will master any software if it is suited to your job and interiorcad is, 100%. If you want me to put you in touch with some active users (there are now considerably more than the ones whose testimonials we are using on our web site), PM me. Also happy to answer all your questions in a Zoom call/demo. Thanks!
  4. Yes there is. You can download it on https://extragroup.com
  5. Just SVG import would be nice. Never mind EPS. Not sure about what you mean by lack of accuracy. SVG is quite accurate in my experience.
  6. It's likely a sorting issue. Have you tried changing the sorting order of the numbers column? That should fix it.
  7. Sorry if we missed something, @Ride. Whom did you approach? As @Woodychips said: it's out. https://en.extragroup.de/buy/
  8. You can adjust the door width by increasing the gap, then attach a free custom part. Or you could draw the opening triangles and put them in the same class. many options...
  9. Hi Dave, We have a FAQ article on managing the material database. https://en.extragroup.de/faq/ search for "material". Let me know if questions remain. Thanks!
  10. Hi Dave, You mean horizontal bifolds? We do not currently support those from within the cabinet object. We have recently added support for vertical bifolds. You can still make them quite easily by adjusting the door width and adding an extra panel. We will add horizontal bifolds to the cabinet as well. No timeline yet.
  11. Hi Martina, can you check the origins of this file please? Vectorworks won't open it, as it tells me the file was once edited with an illegal version. Not necessarily your bad, but you may want to check licensing. I cannot get this to open at my end. Here's more info: https://piracy.vectorworks.net/IllegalFile.php
  12. Yes that should work. Please always attach a document, not just a screenshot. I'll have a look. Thanks!
  13. Here is a Datatag which uses the tagged geometry's object data to draw a hexagonal label around the text. I made this to get the label to adjust to the text without distortion. You might be able to adapt this. Tag Door-IT4.vwx
  14. Hi Ed, That shape is not supported (yet). You will need to use individual custom parts to create something like this.
  15. No, we don't allow it. We will need to make some changes to this as users have been quite unhappy about it but this change will have a lot of side effects and is a big project.
  16. You need Vectorwop, our CNC interface. It outputs CIX, directly to BiesseWorks.
  17. @MarcelP102 someone else has caught this one and I have since updated the eyedropper. I think it will be in one of the upcoming SPs. FYI: Cannot use the bucket because it is already being used for the boundary mode of the same tool! Great thread. Always good someone is keeping an eye out for these things!
  18. Hi @jasvars do you have the full version of interiorcad with Vectorwop? Have you had your initial setup? Please get in touch any time here: https://en.extragroup.de/submit-ticket/ and I'll have a look! Thanks!
  19. I just checked and the sample screw appears to have two drillings. I have dragged them away from the centre to show them. Maybe you deleted one of the drillings previously?
  20. Ok, I don't mind having a look at your library files but you need to upload them please: Thanks!
  21. Just a quick update on the situation: we are aware of the insertion bug with messed-up drillings and are working on a fix. @napwszzm I cannot tell from looking at the document what is going on, I need your custom drawer library for that. I assume you wnet through interiorcad -> fittings -> Edit / Adapt Fittings Library and then chose Drawer Boxes, Drawer Profiles etc.? I need those files from your user folder under /Libraries/Defaults/Custom Part/. One of the most common mistakes users make is to mess up the groups in the custom fittings, or they delete record formats. Record formats that are attached to groups will also be deleted if that group is ungrouped. We provide a sample geometry with each library document that can be used as a guide how to set up your custom fittings. It is advisable to use this sample geometry as a starting point.
  22. Hi @Shawn please buy here: https://en.extragroup.de/buy/ Runs best on Vectorworks Architect but can be used with Fundamentals as well. Let me know if you have any further questions!
