    Rendering White

    http://techboard.vectorworks.net/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=64291#Post64291 Tedious, but it works.
  2. I use this, it's better than a pencil: http://www.franklins.btinternet.co.uk/calcmate.html
  3. Odd. Must have been different for the UK? (Just checked my old Rapidographs to be sure, and my old Staedtlers are the same) Or maybe the colours changed - I haven't bought any pens since about 1986.
  4. Most offices make up their own colour tables, but I've found that many started out by using the Rotring pen colours back in the 80s and have stuck with it (me included), so 0.18 = red, 0.25 = white/black and so on.
  5. With RPC auto rotate and crossed planes become irrelevant. Which answers your wish.
  6. http://www.archvision.com/ Lightworks is RPC enabled but for some reason NNA choose not to include it in Renderworks.
  7. RPC support would be better, but NNA deny us this capability.
  8. I've always used dashed lines, with additional annotation if a window opens in, which is rare for us. For fixed panes we use "F" and "T" for toughened.
  9. They've missed the boat again. No LWA support. No RPC support.
  10. An odd thing has happened. We're being offered Allplan for less than VWA2009. What are Nemetschek up to? Bob, Revit had built in Accurender pretty much from day 1.
  11. Excellent! Don't suppose you have an mcd file for those of us still living in the dark ages?
  12. Christiaan, go here and get dxf files: http://www.thebluebook.co.uk/dynamic/cad_index.asp We use them all the time.
  13. I've come across this before. The dwg has classes called "window" and "door" I'll wager. Try renaming them. Works for me.
  14. Same here. The arrow should always point to the higher level. So it works fine for us.
  15. There's a lot of stuff in Lightworks that isn't in Renderworks. For no apparent reason. I see what you mean now by shadow catcher. Excellent idea.

    Revit and VW? Chalk and cheese. If I had the cash I'd probably use Revit again. But I don't so I use VW. And that's how they compare.
  17. Probably something like being able to select objects in the VP but still see the annotations? Similar to ACAD?
  18. Yep. Drives me up the wall having to do that. After all, this is supposed to be an architectural program. It is possible to produce what you need with Windoor, but even that's no substitute for a properly functional tool.
  19. I use Windoor, and recommend it most highly. Does away with all the faffing about.
  20. Just one of life's little mysteries, I'm afraid. The answer is, you can't. Neither can you import RPCs, which Lightworks also supports. If the answer is cost, I wouldn't mind paying a little more for this capability.
  21. Curtain wall. It's not much use. Windoor is essential if you want to create anything approaching a curtain wall. This was wishlisted not long ago. http://techboard.nemetschek.net/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=96238&page=1#Post96238
  22. Shaun, do you mean you want an invisible object that still casts shadows, as you can in 3D studio? I don't understand how you can cast shadows on to an invisible object.
