    Rendering White

    http://techboard.vectorworks.net/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=64291#Post64291 Tedious, but it works.

    Simple Beam Calculator

    I use this, it's better than a pencil: http://www.franklins.btinternet.co.uk/calcmate.html

    Color to Line Weight

    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.

    Color to Line Weight

    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.

    Mike is right.

    Window PIO: tilt n turn

    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.

    RenderWorks 2009

    They've missed the boat again. No LWA support. No RPC support.
  11. Thanks Christiaan. Much appreciated.

    Upgrade to 2009?

    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.
  13. Excellent! Don't suppose you have an mcd file for those of us still living in the dark ages?

    2D symbols of sanitary fittings

    Christiaan, go here and get dxf files: http://www.thebluebook.co.uk/dynamic/cad_index.asp We use them all the time.
  15. I've come across this before. The dwg has classes called "window" and "door" I'll wager. Try renaming them. Works for me.

    stair arrow direction convention

    Same here. The arrow should always point to the higher level. So it works fine for us.

    Shadow Catcher

    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.

    object-in-viewport selection - ever to be?

    Probably something like being able to select objects in the VP but still see the annotations? Similar to ACAD?

    Door Glazing

    I third that.

    Window Walls/doors

    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.

    creating bay windows

    I use Windoor, and recommend it most highly. Does away with all the faffing about.

    Importing textures from Lightworks

    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.

    Storefront plus door integration

    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

    Shadow Catcher

    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.
