    After 20 odd years of using autocad software I am now starting to use vectorworks fundamentals 2019.

    I have used the connect/combine tool but used the sub command of "dual object combine mode" instead of "dual object connect mode"

    Is there a command that can un combine lines?

    Thanks, Glen

  2. You are trying to set a viewport's opacity. That's interesting. A VP cannot have direct opacity. You can give the VP a fill colour and put it into a class and set that class to an opacity. I don't think you can give the whole VP an opacity that will pass that opacity on to everything that is contained within.

    This formula calculates the total of all the interior angles of a polygon -


    total angle = (n-2)(180)

    where n is the number of sides.


    Since all the individual interior angles will be the same in these examples, you can calculate a single interior angle using -


    individual angle = total angle/n

    where n is again the number of sides.




    Yep, that's the same. (n-2)(180)/n.

    Hi Guys,


    thanks so much for the help ! Think I never got the solution alone. I need to do this with different side lengths so 1200 and 750 are only an example. So  the reproduceable method is to calculate the "double angle" Edges / (Edges/2 -1) / 360 and split it up by the proportion of the side lenghts. Two parallel lines for each side cross the angle at the desired radius.


    I will check that for other length combinations.


    It works with any number of edges, as long as there are always two of each. I'll make you a quick Marionette. After my supper.

    I know how to isolate points, what i ment is imagine a big pointcloud and you just want to hide some points in the middle. There are always other points in your way from your pov but using clipcube could solve this problem...or at least i thought it does. But when i isolated those points the other points were isolated as well outside the clipcube (which were not visible  outside the clipcube).

    Yes, I get it. The clip cube is a visibility thing. That's sometimes counter-intuitive as you would expect objects that are hidden to behave like they are hidden and not be affected by selection. I cannot imagine dealing with point clouds without the clip cube but I share your view on how it should behave.

  6. @STA check your network again. I had a quick look - when I alt-drag your Marionette to make a copy, the new object gets corrupted. I'm not saying there is not a bug also (I had a similar thing happening with the "Set 2D Vertex" node in wrapped objects) but I would first try and fix the network.

    Hmm, I don't know Stephan, but I will check. But I am very excited to see a new version of your Books tool!

    Hi Tamsin, I have now posted a DropBox link. Upload is terminated with unknown error (-200). I have included some lever arch files in the embedded library of symbols.

    Jim Wilson has once ago meant that the limit was 2 MB. No idea if this limit from 2015 is still valid.


    I don't think this was ever true for the Marionette section. Books 2.2 have 331.1MB, Books 2.3 have 337.8MB. My guess is something broke somewhere on the way.
