  1. Best way I find to resolve this is to open a new VW file and then import the DWG file. Save that file Then on your working file use Create Viewport, on a design layer, then select source and create the dwg as reference file. You can then control what you see through the VP dialogue box.

    VW 2010 & Lion compatibility?

    I have created a backup drive, using Super Duper and updated it to Lion. I have exported from 2010 to Artlantis Studio & a created a QTVR By default it opened in QT7, when I tried to open in QT10 it said to use QT7!! The file runs fine.

    Drawing A Line

    Hi Jeffrey, A problem that someone has reported to me, using Xp & 2008 SP3 is that the data bar refuses any additional entries after the first one, ie you can tab the length, and tab again for angle, nothing happens. Have you seen this problem before? Thanks in advance

    Rotating curved truss

    Kevin, Thanks for that, I had tried that check box, but I did not look for the right changes. That would be useful to have for all Hybrid objects, especially 2d/3d symbols Mike

    Rotating curved truss

    Must me missing something, how do you rotate a curved truss in the vertical plane, ie to create a curved proscenium arch? As soon as it is ungrouped and then grouped it can be rotated, but loses all the truss parametrics.

    Trilite Truss

    You can set the truss tool to 150mm to correspond with the square, ladder or triangular trilite

    "random" window fading/dimming

    If you go to VW Preferences>Interactive>Highlighting and uncheck animation or burst that might cure your problem

    Importing igs files

    The file was created in Pro-Engineer I believe. What is strange is that 2008 will cope with it but not 2009.

    VW signaling a strategy change?

    I think you will benefit from some on-site 1 to 1 training and you will find you will not have to recover many more bundles of $2250

    Do you get the same figure after a restart? Is it the same figure with all files? If so submit a bug to NNA

    Although Steve Jobs other board position at Disney, through the sale of Pixar, means 3D animation is close to his heart. I heard a couple of years back of Apple's interest in the 3d market sector, but it seems this has not been developed as far as their own software branding.

    Purchase decision

    Who has informed you that you need to pay to switch platforms, VW2008 is not platform dependent. You should be able to install on either platform. This is certainly the case in Europe.

    SP2/2009 won't install

    Looking on the website it seems that the instruction to update is done from the updater, rather than via the programme. http://www.nemetschek.net/downloads/fundamentals/2009/2009SP2.php I wonder if Nemetschek can shed any light on this??

    SP2/2009 won't install

    Are you running either Educational version or another E series?

    11.5 on Leopard

    One solution is to buy VMWare and run 10.4.11 on that then you can run 11.5 on the old style interface. But really the benefit of upgrading to 2009 will far outweigh what you can produce on 11.5
  23. Not yet, as there is an E-series warning, it will be available in a few days. Also if you check through the software, there is no update available.

    Local/Regional Training

    This would be a good time for Nemetschek to validate trainers, so that there is a recognised certification process. It would also make it easier for users to brush up on their skills. There must be some ISO accreditation that could be achieved which is good for users and their clients.
