  1. Thanks Andrew, I'll give that a shot.
  2. I have been working on a 3D model of an interior space, with only the adjacent exterior walls in the drawing. I'm not sure of the total number of objects offhand that are in the drawing, but the entire file is just over 100MB. The problem I'm having is that when when trying to render within VW (I'm not to the point in the project to do final renderings yet), it's been taking as long as 10-15 minutes to render a simple hidden line rendering, when it actually completes the rendering process. About half the time I get the error message ne or more operations aborted do to lack of memory". Hardware/software specs are: VW 9.0.1 Mac G4/450 384 MB RAM (256 allocated to VW) AGP graphics card/ Open GL I've just ordered another 512MB RAM card hoping that it will help. Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks, Eric Chiarelli
  3. quote: Originally posted by mikeconner: If I read this correctly, you drawing should fit on one 11x17 page but you are getting extra blank pages when you print. If so, what do the page guides look like on screen, do you see four gray boxes showing page edges or just one? Are you sure you print area is set to just one page? Mike- Thanks for replying and sorry it's taken me 5 months to answer your question, but I was just dealing with it and had forgotten I posted a listing. To answer you question, the page setup shown on the screen shows one box for the page with grey lines sectioning off a narrow piece of the drawing page at the bottom and right edges of the page. The print preview dialog box (on the printer itself) lists pages 2,3 and 4 but shows nothing on them. I have to select only page 1 to be printed or it will spit out 3 blank pages following the print. Thanks, Eric Mike Conner
  4. When printing 11x17 sheets, VW generates 4 pages for each sheet drawn. Pages 2-4 are always blank, but show up in the print dialog box and print (blank) anyway. I can disable ppg. 2-4 in the print preview box, but it would be easier if I didn't have to. FYI - the hardware/software I am using is VW 8.5.2 on a G4/450 with an Epson Stylus 1160 printer. Thanks.
