  1. Im basically just trying to be able to work cross platform to achieve the best results. Some functions are fare smoother in VW, and vice versa in ArchiCAD. Between the two programs, just about anything is possible very easily. For instance, general modeling of forms is much easier in VW, but since there is not yet an updated modeling plugin for ArchiCAD, complex 3d modeling is near impossible (at least for me, a fairly new user). But, ArchiCAD handles material assignments and rendering on the fly FARRR better than VW. As I said, each program has its highs and lows, and if there were some way to achieve intermingling between the two then the results would be amazing in half the time of either program alone. Maybe I'm just imagining a dream world...but it shure would be nice...
  2. What is the best way to export from V12 to ArchiCAD while still retainig parametric objects. When I tried a dwg export, it converted EVERYTHING to individual lines.
  3. straight walls, curved rafters
  4. What is the best way to do curved roof? I tried drawing the curve in an elevation then extruding it but that didnt work too well...
  5. I know this is elementary, but I have no idea how to render windows and other things with both glass and another material. How do I do this?
  6. Is there any way to fix the bug that doesn't allow you to import sketchup files on mac when you are looged on as admin?
  7. Ok I got it...thanks for the help
  8. Well...I just tried that and it still won't create a roof face. It just closes the roof face dialogue box and the rectangle remains a rectangle
  9. I am a new user and have 2 questions: 1) How do you make a 3D rectangle solid into a roof (for a single sloping roof)? 2)How do you fit window walls to a roof? Thanks
  10. Is there any way to fix that? Thats the only account I have
  11. Hi, Whenever I try to import, nothing happens...I click import sketchup and it just goes back to the normal screen w/o bringing up the dialogue box. Anyone else with this problem?
