  1. @Urstanner you cannot use interiorcad custom parts to create a parametric cabinet. It may be possible in a future version but as for now, it isn't. That's what we have the cabinet PIO for. Hundreds of thousands of hours have gone into its development. It is not a trivial task to create a PIO as complex as the cabinet. Would you like to explain what you are trying to achieve so we can consider it and perhaps implement it as part of the cabinet PIO?

  2. I explained to you on the German forum that VWX doesn't have the same 3D constraints manager as TopSolid. The answer is still the same. You can do this construction with ease using interiorcad - plus, you will get the complete CNC code from the fittings and millings you assign to the parts or their connections. You need to stop expecting things we do not do and start to embrace the possibilities interiorcad is offering. For example, I know from talking to quite a few customers who have converted from TopSolid that although they cannot achieve a fully parametric construction, the modelling process is much faster in VWX. So, some you lose, some you gain.

    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

  4. 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.
