    Certainly the easiest, and probably super expensive.

    Ingredients for a single cupcake shouldn't be excessive. And IIRC Vectorworks now has photogrammetric visual scanning. I haven't tried it but it's not a bad idea!

    Except, maybe the blue/green left/right ACAD Marquee Selection is

    a but more comfortable than holding ALT key in VW.

     I wonder about that. VWX objects are most often filled. Wouldn't those get dragged if the selection marquee was started on top of one?

    That's one reason to abandon Autocad. How very inefficient that must be. What happens if you make changes to your project? Vectorworks has sophisticated fills and transparencies almost like a graphic program. In fact Vectorworks' tile fill is much more elegant than the fills options even in Illustrator. And it's more powerful than Autocad in 3D as well! (I only use the 3D part of VWX because 2D workflows are too inefficient to get work done!)  I have converted hundreds of users from Autocad to Vectorworks over the past 20 years and not a single one has wanted to go back. Autocad users always tell me "we don't work in 3D. It's too complicated. We only do 2D". Truth be told, Autocad doesn't even have proper 2D. it's all flattened 3D really.

    I could go on for hours! 

    @Vectorworks Novice give VWX a chance, you will *not* regret it!

    The Fillet tool randomly not working on some edges is more of a problem since I use that a lot when modeling furniture (think of the rounded edges of a Barco lounge chair)


    I suspect (forgive me if I am wrong!) that you are lumping together several issues. If the Fillet Tool fails, it is usually because some of the conditions it is meant to work on are not right (edges tapering into nothing or meeting at impossible angles). It can be frustrating but it is explainable. The title of this thread is still about objects not hiding and I know that there are issues there. I know they are being worked on as I have files bugs. However, these issues are very unlikely to be related to the fillet tool not working.

  5. @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?

  6. 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
