  1. Has anyone determined what the option "delete source poly" does to the hardscape object? Does it maintain the original polyline in order to create dimensions perhaps?
  2. Petri: Please read my original post. Draw a series of poly lines and arcs and convert it to a hardscape object. The hardscape object apparently loses all associations to arcs in that they cannot be dimensioned with the dimension tool in the radius mode. I tend to agree with landscapes down under in that you must create a copy of the hardscape object using only arcs, lines, polylines, etc. in order to dimension the radius points because they are eliminated by the hardscape conversion.
  3. I have been a registered landscape architect since 1974 (you do the math) and I have always dimensioned arcs and circles from radius point locations along with the radius of the object. I specialize in high-end residential design and the contractors expect the radius point locations along with the radius to be dimensioned. When you are trying to scribe an eight foot radius on the site you do not use a laser device. Let's get real! Back to my original question: Does the "delete source poly" option at the beginning of hardscape creation allow a work-around for this obvious oversight of the program? Why create a hardscape object in a CAD program used to provide information for construction when you cannot dimension that object and convey that information to the field personnel? It is great for presentation purposes to the client but it isn't worth a dime when you are trying to create construction documents!
  4. How does one dimension hardscape objects? I use the "compose" feature to group lines, etc. and then use the convert to polylines to create a hardscape object. When I attempt to dimension hardscapes with the radial dimension tool on arcs, circles, etc., it does not work.
  5. I am a new user to Vector Works. I am using Vector Works 12 with Landmark and Render Works. My question...Do hardscapes render in isometric and perspective views? When changing views to isometric I only get an outline of the pad but no textures. Walls and trees render as designated but the view looks pretty sorry without the hardscapes rendered. After all, I am a landscape architect and this is a very important aspect of the overall design.
  6. Islandmon, Being new to Vector Works, I do not know how to access the OIP class settings nor can I find any info in the manuals, on-line help, etc. How about a hint?
