  1. Thanks guys, you were both right on and I got it working the way I want. Thanks for the offer Peter. I will keep that in mind if I have too much trouble. Arbor
  2. Thanks mike. It's not perfectly symmetrical, so I will just model the individual roof faces like you said. Then I'll need to add in the gable walls - can I use real walls for this, or do I have to just model solid shapes for them too? Thanks
  3. Hi, I am not too good with VW, especially Architect. I am trying to create a roof for a rectangular building that is 33'x31'. The roof needs to be a 6:12 slope, with a dormer on each side that is the full width of it's side. I have tried creating a hip roof, and then adding dormers of the dimensions I want, and can't get it to work out. What is the right way to do this? BTW I am using old-school Vectorworks 12 (not 2012). I googled and found a picture of what I want: Thanks, Arbor

    Wall joining

    As for the counter top, I am using a 3D "Counter Top In Wall", so how can a regular rectangle work?

    Wall joining

    This should work for me... I pulled the upper and left walls back, then joined the exterior ones (bottom and right), then used the L-join to join the interior walls back in.

    Yes, I tried that, still doesn't work very well. Another question: I am trying to put in a counter top with a laundry sink, and when I try to give it a sink it says the hole isn't cut. What's wrong?
  7. I can't seem to figure out the wall joining thing very well. Here are some pictures of what happens in one of my problem spots: I've tried the X-join, T-join, and L-join modes, but whatever I do, it seems one of the others goes wrong. I'm sure it's just something I'm missing. Thanks, Arbor
  8. Yes, I did try using colors, and that does work...I just was wondering if there was a way to give it a RW texture...no big deal though.
  9. Hi, I'm trying to render a house, and I created a roof from the walls. I want to have the top of the roof render differently from the sides, but when I try to change it, nothing happens. It is still the grayish color on the sides. I am using 12.5.1 on a Mac. Thanks, Arbor
  10. OK, thanks, it doesn't appear to be any of those...but I downloaded 12.5.1 last night, and it works fine now, whether it will stay that way I don't know. Issue solved for now though.
  11. Nope. Neither one of those.
  12. Hi, Now it's doing it again...and restarting VW doesn't help. I can't select more than one layer, even when it's on Show/snap/modify others. Any ideas? I am on a Mac by the way. Arbor
  13. Thanks, I did try that before, and it didn't work...I knew that's what I wanted, but it didn't work. Now it works fine. I guess I should have restarted VW before posting...Thanks anyway.
  14. Hi, I am using VW 12.0.0 Design Series. I recently started trying house designs, and found that I can't seem to select different layers at the same time. I need to go to the layer that the object I want to select is in, and If I want to do something to more than one layer at once, it's impossible. Any ideas? Thanks, Arbor
  15. Oh...I'm pretty good at making Flash animations...I wont do a slide show, I'll make a movie with the exported things. Didn't even think about that. Thanks! By the way, I just made that thing for learning purposes anyway...and ya, good thing it doesn't have old growth! Arbor
