  1. I've only just come across the AR feature in Nomad, and I'm wondering if is possible to share AR models with 3rd parties that do not have service select subscription i.e. don't have login information for Nomad. I can create a link and it seems I can share the model in orbit or walkthrough mode but I can't figure out how to enable the AR feature. The question is - can it be done and if so how. Many thanks in advance for your comments.
  2. Absolutely. The UX designers must have been asleep when this change was implemented, but at least there is a logical workaround now. Let's hope that it gets changed back to the original workflow in a future update - not holding my breath though.😶
  3. Thanks Juan, That's really helpful and I was able to replicate it. So the key points are: 1) Set up a new "animation" layer, with the working plane set at the required viewer height and activate it. 2) Turn "Layer Option" in the "View" menu to "Show/Snap/Modify Others" 3) While "Animation" layer is still active, select an object to centre the view on. 4) Select "Create Orbit Path" from the "Model" menu 5) In the "Orbit Options" Palette select "Active Layer Plane" as the centre of rotation and un-check the "Orthogonal Projection" so you can preview and edit the animation once it is created. Any chance this might make it's way into the help files or tutorials online, because it seems to be key point that has not been made anywhere else from what I can see? Thanks again.
  4. Yes I did see that - VW help is usually my first port of call - but it doesn't really answer the question. K Exactly. Thanks for boiling it down Kazemester
  5. I'm having the same issue with the new orbit animation tool as Kazemester. It's an absolute mess compared to the 2019 tool. I design furniture and I used to be able to produce an animation using the view of a camera object set at the viewer height looking down at an object (viewer at 1500 mm off floor and looking at at point 600 mm off the floor). I couldn't get CipesDesign's workaround to work either. Are there any VW developers out there that can explain how to achieve the result I'm looking for? I know I can move the orbit path and scale it to make it larger than the one that is randomly created by VW, but why can't I select a "look to point" for the whole animation? It seems the "look to point" has to be manually adjusted for every keyframe (and that's not intuitive either) - why? Not that I'm expecting any real response to my post, but please fix this asap. I also will be keeping the 2019 version to achieve this type of animation with a reasonable workflow. If things that aren't broken keep getting "fixed" I'm questioning why I'm upgrading every year? Attached an orbit animation with keyframes adjusted manually. As there is no way to snap to a look to point, you get vertical bounces. Not very professional! Untitled.mov
  6. Had a call back from the service select team and it turns out I was using a legacy "Create Animation" tool. When updating annually I kept the same workspace environment, which I had changed to the way I like to work, so the old tool was moved along. It was a question of editing the workspace, deleting the old one and dragging across the new tool. Problem solved for me
  7. To add some further info - The dimension line is shown as "sketched" when the preview button is pressed but then does not get applied when the OK button is pressed.Short video attached. Un-Sketched Dimesion line.mov
  8. Hi, I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed that sketch styles are no longer being signed to dimension lines in viewports. I have viewport with "Open GL" Background render setting and a "hidden line" foreground render setting with the "sketch hidden line" option ticked in the "foreground render settings" tab. It seemed to be working fine last week before I upgraded to SP2.2 😕 Aren't they supposed to fix bugs not create them?
  9. Hello, "Save Movie" or "preview" seems not to be working when trying to create an animation in VW 2020 SP2.2 I came across an issue yesterday and have opened a ticked with support but haven't heard back. Anyone else seeing this issue. It's not a function I use often so can't say whether it's since the recent SP update. Everything works as expected when I exporting the same file to 2019 and open it there, so don't think it's the file itself, but could it be preferences? Attached is a test file I sent to support. It's contains only a cube. Look forward to suggestions. Knut Test.vwx
  10. Hi Jim, To clarify - I didn't have this issue since 2016 - but the post you referenced in your message in this thread flagged the problem in 2016. I was trying to re-iterate a point in another post to this thread that issues seem not to be addressed in consecutive releases in favour of adding bells and whistles in the newest version.
  11. Same issue here in 2019. Everything worked fine in 2018. @Jim Wilson - please bump this to the top of someones list to resolve, cause restarting software many times a day is not a workaround especially since it's been around since 2016
  12. Many Thanks for the reply. That has sorted my problem. Knut
  13. Hi I'm having the following issues with the attributes pallet since updating to 2018: 1) It no longer docks with other pallets. 2) Auto-hide floating pallets option does not affect it Is this deliberate in the new version or is there something I'm missing?
  14. Hi, I'm having a problem creating viewports on a sheet layer that appears intermittently. On the sheet layer I create a bounding box around the objects I want to show (top plan view) and hit "create Viewport" in the View drop down menu. The normal dialog appears and when I hit OK without changing anything I get a message saying " That viewport is already being used by another object. Please use a different name". Starting again and changing the name in the Create Viewport pane brings up the same error message. I can create the same viewport, without changing the name in the dialogue box, on a different sheet layer and then send it to my required sheet layer without any problems. Not a big problem but it messes up the workflow. Any thoughts would be appreciated Regards Knut
  15. Having a small issue with the 3d view preferences I think I have set them to change to open GL render mode and the projection as "narrow perspective" in the Vectorworks preferences menu, but this seems to have no effect on the drawing. I tend to work in plan view and then use the flyover tool to rotate the model to get a sense of the what's going on. I was under the impression that these settings in the preferences would be automatically applied. Am I missing something? Still using VW 2015 on Macbook Pro with OSX 10.7.5 Regards Knut
