  1. @Jim Wilson I think it's gone. I haven't seen it since SP2. Thanks!
  2. Think so. It's been a while. I had a quick look inside the wrapper and it looks like this: Feed the values in according to the node description. You may have to string several of these together.
  3. Use a function perhaps, like x*x*50 or something similar?
  4. @Nuno Antunessee my reply to this thread, it has an object attached with some texture manipulation that should answer all your questions:
  5. @Nuno Antunescheck out my Box objects. I am resizing the texture to fit to the lid for example. Does this help? Box.vwx
  6. I can only comment on the auto-cutout for countertop wish: That is entirely possible with the full version of interiorcad. You can group a routing contour with a sink symbol and have it behave like a window in a wall: Cutout.mp4
  7. Is this the "Custom Cabinet" you are referring to? You can click inside a segment and adjust its size as shown in the screen shot.There are more advanced options in the full-blown version of interiorcad. Some videos here.
  8. Try this. It's not far off, just needs some refinement. Vortex Box.vwx
  9. @Palle You need to supply a list of values to the rect and, subsequently, extrude node. That will take care of everything. The ordered list is not necessary for this kind of thing.
  10. The Books have been converted to run with VWX 2019 and I fixed an error where the 'Hardcover' library needed a shelf depth and height of 2m to produce any books.
  11. Yes but what I am proposing are changes pertaining to the functioning of the UI. That's UX. What I was trying to say was, let's not confuse VWX functions ("How do I change the crop of a viewport") with UI functions ("How do I access the side pane widget while the RM is in a docked state").
  12. Interesting poll about colour in the Archicad UI after it was made all white. Yeah, one needs to be careful, users are fickle... 🙂
  13. Jim, with the Resource Manager, users were not given a choice though. They *had* to use it. And while it's better than before, the UI does still not allow for the RM to be used in a docked state. I do tech support once a week (because I want to) and whenever I Teamviewer into customers' screens, I see the RM floating and collapsed. Why? Because its options are not visible in a docked and hence narrow state. This is a pure UX thing and I think it needs to be addressed. I have detailed how it could be addressed in my prototype. I am not proposing that my graphics be used (I think they are just next year's old UI and some young, talented designers will do a better job, no doubt) but the way it *behaves* isn't right. It's a usability bug if nothing else.
  14. All good and well but please let's not create the standard excuse for not caring about the aesthetics of the UI here. This thread is and has been about how VWX *looks*. Perhaps also a little bit about how it *feels*. But not about how it *functions*. A modern appearance is completely separate from functionality and what this thread is about is mostly aesthetics. Improving on features has never been a weak part of VWX, in fact I think we must admit that huge progress has been made over the past years. This all has happened while maintaining a dated and clunky UI. That is what this thread is about so please let's not muddy the message by such comments (although I'm sure it is a valid comment in a different thread).
  15. Sending and receiving values from any node is a good idea and other node-based apps have it, too (screen shot from Origami). Any output should be able to be fed into a sender node and received anywhere for input. That would be a welcome new feature for Marionette.
  16. Confirmed. The Resource Manager previews also show the black backgrounds. Once edited on a different machine, they return to normal.
  17. Today everything is back to what it was before. So, again, the user folder must be reset to fix the black renders. I wonder what brings this about. Is there anything the customer might be doing, that provokes this behaviour?
  18. Thank you @David Sand @Bas Vellekoop. Bas' suggestion solved the problem so thanks for saving my day! Yes, deleting the user folder is kind of brute force and should be done with care. I have restored the customer's workspace and everything seems fine now.
  19. Here are two viewports rendered with OpenGL (top) and Renderworks (bottom) on a client machine (left) and the same viewports rendered on my computer (right). The client is quite desperate because he is getting these black backgrounds in both OpenGL and Renderworks intermittently. He is also seeing white (RGB 255,255,255) areas in rendered images turning black on his computers but nobody is able to reproduce the behaviour anywhere else. Any ideas? Thanks!
  20. Check out this mockup and while you're there: please upvote the topic 🙂 Thanks!
  21. Tabs would definitely have to be more dynamic. Developers should be able to decide which tabs, besides the stock ones, they want to add. Also, why is the Attribute Palette not part of the OIP? There are some really nice opportunities there. Just think class attributes and the like. I still keep thinking I'm overlooking something though and there are some logical clashes there....
  22. I made another little video. There were some comments and suggestions about the OIP earlier in this thread which I thought about. (There's more to come. I have been thinking about why the Attributes Palette is not part of the OIP and I think I must be overlooking something...) and I received some personal messages about how some of the things I proposed did not come across in an understandable way. Goes to show that everyone, including myself, struggles with that elusive chasm between sender and receiver. As always, here my little disclaimer: I haven't the slightest clue if any of what I am proposing makes any sense to anyone else or if it is even possible to implement in Vectorworks. Still, please upvote this if you haven't already (the little green triangle, right at the top...) 🙂 PS - there's a little bonus extra at the end. Wait for it... OIP.mp4
