  1. Hi Ray Updated my signature. Hopefully that helps?
  2. Hi All. Until a month ago I have been happily using VW2009 (fundamentals), now , I've installed VW2011, and we just haven't bonded! It seems to have issues with both hybrid symbols (regularly crashes) and viewports on complex building drawings (very very slow re-draw). Everything grinds to a halt, when it used to work fine in VW2009. Anyone else experienced similar problems? Is there a cure?! I have installed the service pack 2, but no change.
  3. Im a VW2008 Fundamentals user, trying to create line-art images of our products for catalogue. I am after a simple outline image of the product, but using the "hidden line" render option sometimes shows edges of visible surfaces that I dont want. I have discovered that whether or not these lines are visible depends on how the 3D object was first created. For example, take two identical rounded rectangles, if one is extruded, it will show multiple unwanted lines within the shape. If the other is extruded along a path, these lines are not shown when rendered as a "hidden line". Many components in my product symbols library have been drawn using the simple extrude command. Redrawing all of these is a real time consuming last resort! Does anyone know of a way round this? Does any of the VW add-on software such as Renderworks have a facility to achieve the desired effect?
  4. I frequently import DWG's into VW12 with no problems at all. Now all of a sudden, every time I try an import, it crashes the programme. This doesn't happen with older DWG's, only more recent files with Sheet Layers attached. It's a new gremlin that I've only noticed today. Even if I try importing DWG's that i've worked on with no problems in the last few weeks, (which are almost identical - eg: from the same architect and also have sheet layer attached) and these crash the programme aswell. Any suggestions, other than it being 'one of those days'?
  5. Thanks I had a feeling that might be the answer. Having not yet got into writing Vectorscripts, I thought I'd check (in vain hope!) that there wasn't an easier way.
  6. Please can someone help me with this probably very simple question. Using Vectorworks Fundamentals 12.0.1, I wish to set up a title box template to automatically appear in all sheet layers ready for print, without having to copy and paste the symbol into each sheet, one by one. I am adding furniture layouts into architects drawings (imported into VW as a DWG) which have upwards of 200 sheet layers, so any tips on how to speed up the process would be greatly appeciated!
