  1. Vectorworks 2021 is different. The debug menu commands and the dialog builder are now installed via the Help>Install Partner Products... menu. Once the dialog opens select Vectorworks Developer on the left and you will see 2 items on the right, Dialog Builder and Debug Menu. Select one and it will be installed and added to your current workspace.
  2. These files have always been extra. We made a change to make it easier to add more providers and not Vision is trying to use these extra files as DMX providers.
  3. It looks like the latest Vision Windows installer is adding some additional unnecessary files to the DmxProviders folder. We will work on getting the problem corrected but till then. Navigate to the DmxProviders folder in the install directory, typically C:\Program Files\Vision 2021\DmxProviders. DELETE Artnet.exp Aetnet.lib Multiinput.exp Multiinput.lib sACN.exp sACN.lib The DmxProviders should ONLY contain 32 app_updater Artnet.dll grandMA.dll Hog3.dll HogPC.dll Multiinput.dll sACN.dll

  5. Check the texture applied to the floor, it should be set to cast (and receive) shadows. Check the light object and make sure it is set to cast shadows.
  6. OK. I tested with just a single light and could not reproduce the issue. The way the schematic view object is designed it should not be possible to send the lights you represented there to Lightwright.
  7. Please make sure you are using Vectorworks 2021 SP2, there were several fixes made to address the Lightwright data exchange issues in SP2. If you continue to have issues please report the issue here and be sure to supply your file and a detailed description of the exact problem.
  8. If you have customized the OIP in Spotlight Preferences try reverting the the default set and see if that solves the issue. If you continue to have the issue please submit a bug report with the Vectorworks 2017 file so that we can investigate the problem. https://www.vectorworks.net/support/bugsubmit
  9. These features and symbols are part of Architect and Designer only.
  10. @DeJaVu With Vectorworks 2021 importing speakers is no longer necessary and you can use detailed symbol geometry if you need to show all the details of the speaker.
  11. Check the values we have in our symbols. We assume a certain lamp type when we create the symbol and use the data that is available when we created the fixture. I know that some specifications have changed over the years and manufacturers have correct/updated their specification. We have verified that that calculations we report are correct based on the methods in Robert C. Mumm's Photometrics Handbook 2nd Edition. The manufacturer's report probably uses actually measurements so they will always be more accurate.
  12. Make sure the data you are supplying the Vectorworks symbol is in candle power or peak candella, not Lux, Lumen or some other value. (It does NOT use the value from the VW light emitter.) With that said Vectorworks uses a very simple cosine squared falloff calculation based on the distance from the source. It does not take into account dimmer value, color, shadows, reflections or any other objects in the drawing.
  13. You can contact support but I think we only support 1 or 2 version back for the educational version. ETC will have to update the plug-in to be compatable with the current version.
  14. Set the profile to Square (or Hexagon). When the profile is round there are about 32(?) faces of the circle that you can snap to, when it's Square there are 4 faces, Hexagon will give you 6 faces. Tick marks are just for marks along the length of the pipe.
  15. Try starting with a blank file rather than from the template file.
