  1. I can see what you are doing there. You are trying to assign a one-off material. That's perfectly fine when you want one individual piece to have a different material than what has been assigned to that type of part in general. Try this: go to the "Construction" tab and assign a material to the shelf (or fixed shelf, I cannot really see which one it is). That should give you what you need.
  2. Final release is scheduled for next week (week of Dec 7).
  3. I see the problem. The label for the material is actually a link that can be clicked on. Enabled links will be shown in blue. You have selected a part that does not (yet) exist in your cabinet model. Click on side/stile and the labels should turn blue and become clickable.
  4. @Habitat43 so you have two questions: 1.) How to change the thickness of a material? You seem to have found the master data. Any material you have defined in the master data can be used anywhere in the cabinet and also in a standalone part. Assign the material to the parts (last page in the cabinet object's dialog) and you should be all set. 2.) You want framed fronts. This will be possible in the upcoming version of interiorcad (2021) which we will release very shortly. You will also be able to use profiles for stiles and rails and for the panel.
  5. BTW the object arrays are all done via Marionette. Each green box has a Marionette of just a single symbol which is scaled, rotated and displaced with controlled random values. It's the next best thing to a real gravity and collision control function which Vectorworks does not have.
  6. I found a source for 3d-scanned objects: https://sketchfab.com/. Stumbled upon these guys while looking for vegetable symbols. As always, quality varies but generally very good. Some free objects, some paid for. This is a rendered viewport.
  7. There is more than just framed fronts though. You can probably guess what this means:
  8. Hi Kevin, you will need Vectorworks 2021 for interior xs 2021 to run. 2021 actually makes a few things a lot snappier, especially redraw and OpenGL so don't hold back!
  9. I have downloaded some very good objects from https://archive3d.net. The vegetables and cookie jar and even the roast turkey was from there IIRC. You need to try them out though. Some are good, others aren't.
  10. Sorry, I forgot that part. Yes, of course you need a none fill and then you set it to filled after the extrusion.
  11. Extruding an arc gives you a pie, which you then need to shell to get rid of the sides.
  12. That's possible with the full version of interiorcad and yes, it's an extra plugin. There is an entry-level version, interior xs, which has full capabilities but does not do fittings, parts lists and costing. The 2021 version of interiorcad/interior xs will also feature framed fronts, face frames, openable fronts, awning doors, notched toe kicks and a slew of other features made for users outside of Germany/Austria/Switzerland.
  13. @Travis.Designer Here is the help page for creating custom hinges: https://conf.extragroup.de:8443/im/latest/creating-custom-libraries However, for that type of hinge this will not work 100%. I will post a link to a Youtube video here shortly which I have just finished, explaining how to create custom fittings.
  14. As for the file format: you can simply choose "Vectorworks interiorcad" from the list and then copy and paste into your document. This is a Java applet and is slightly temperamental so if it does not work as expected, just choose STEP and download. Then, drag and drop into your document. I will make a short film to explain how to proceed with the hinge from there on. (As soon as I get a chance).
  15. Ah, you mean the rogue object? Replace the 0 in the 'First Rectangle Width' node with 50. You are creating a dead object so the count for the rotation values is one more than that for objects. You can see it if you go to debug mode:
