  1. I've never used the loft surface command, but I'll read up on it. And SKFURN, the entire table is solid...see attached PDF.
  2. I'm trying to model a table of solid wood. The table top is an oval 14"x18", but the base is round with a diameter of 9 inches. I'm not sure how to go about modelling this. As far as I can tell, standard extrudes won't work (sweep, multiple, EAP, taper). I'm not at all versed in the use of NURBS, but maybe that's the only option? Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks
  3. Is this true. VW can't do it? I assumed it was my own ignorance of the tools, although I did spend time trying - just thought I missed something small that would allow me to do this. I'm sure this topic has been discussed at length, but this is just basic functionality needed here.
  4. I need to make a window and door arrangement like the attached PDF. I can't seem to find enough flexibility in the door dialogue boxes to make this work. I can get close, but how do you define a half-height sidelight? I haven't invested a lot of time in the window and door dialogue boxes, but what little I have has been frustrating.....
  5. Thanks Benson. I was missing the step to convert to nurbs. It worked perfectly!
  6. Hi All. I'm building a bulkhead over a bar that is radiused and angled. I need to laminate the bottom face, but I'm curious if I can unfold the sheathing in order to layout the cutting of the laminate. See attached file. I've drawn the stud framing, and the 1/4" mdf sheathing. I would like to unfold the 1/4" MDF so that in top/plan I can start to layout my laminate joints. I've tried a bunch of times with no luck. I've never done this before so excuse me if this is a simple problem, or if I'm missing something simple. Thanks
  7. Thanks for your reply. And thanks to the guys at Resolve - it turns out the set perspective setting was way off. I set it back to normal perspective and all is well. Thank you
  8. On occasion when I use the walkthrough tool I get a really skewed view of the model....where all the axis look like they're stretched somehow. Other times I get a proper perspective of the model. What setting is wrong? Sometimes - the walkthrough tools works fine, then all of a sudden it changes to this skewed view, and I can't get it back to normal. What am I missing? Thanks!
  9. Orso....your recommendation that using keys for zooming is 'more efficient' is a matter of opinion only. In MY opinion - the scroll wheel is by far the most efficient way to navigate a drawing. And it worked perfectly for a long time. But since 2008 it doesn't work as well.
  10. I think in some cases users have a file-specific problem....and it would be great if these could be posted for trouble-shooting. In other cases - particularly with the regen speed, it's ALL files. It's the 1/2 to a full second delay in regenerating the screen when zooming with the mouse wheel. There's no point in posting any files because a) they all do it, and b) "this is a feature" - NM has already acknowledged that the program exhibits this behaviour and says it's working as designed. For users posting about this problem we just want NM to know that this behaviour is not desirable...and is really annoying. If we keep posting maybe they'll fix it.
  11. Yes...please keep us posted on the screen re-draw issue. If it's fixed I'd be inclined to upgrade from 2010.
  12. For the price of interiorCAD XS....I can't imagine why anyone would stick to the Vectorworks libraries. I used the VW cabinets until I purchased interiorCAD....there's no comparison. Given speed, efficiency and flexibility of InteriorCAD XS it would probably pay for itself on the first project. Just my opinion having used both.
  13. Even that would be an improvement....at least there would be some acknowledgement of the problem......
  14. I'm not using 2011 yet, but I always regretted upgrading to 2010 as soon as it was released. I've decided that I will stay a year behind on upgrades so there's time for some of the bugs to be worked out. I don't think annual upgrades are feasible. I would much prefer to wait 2-3 yrs between upgrades if it meant the new changes were robust, well thought-out, and productive.
  15. On the topic of NC code, is one machine's software better for integration to interiorCAD than the other? Currently I'm considering either and SCM Pratix N12 (Xilog Plus) or the Biesse Skill GFT (Biesseworks). Will InteriorCAD work with both of these equally well? Our work...at least to start will mainly deal with typical casework. VW2010 SP4 architect, InteriorCAD MacBook Pro 2.4 4GB, 256MB video
  16. Make it the size you want....then command+R to toggle it on and off. Might be easier.
  17. C'mon. NO ONE likes it this way. We all just put up with it as we've all invested so much time becoming proficient with the software. SURELY there's a way to fix this.
  18. jrhartley's commets are spot on. I too went through a lot of trouble with VW when 2009 came out and was slow to regen. They told me a similar thing....working as designed. I thought they were crazy. "Yes....I like to get headaches after drawing for a short time as my eyes keep trying to focus on things that aren't in focus..."
  19. Just wondering.....why is interiorCAD not listed in the Nemetschek home site? I know it's an add-on for VW, but a fairly substantial one. It's not listed anywhere on the support forum either. Is Nemetschek not serious about InteriorCAD I wonder?
  20. Agreed. This problem started with VW 2009 I believe. I thought for the longest time that my computer was at fault (and that's what tech support said as well....video card issue). I went as far as buying a new macbook pro with a better video card, and installed another 2gb ram only to find that nothing changed. It's definitely the software. Should this issue be posted elsewhere? I realize this shouldn't be a wishlist....but I do wish it would be fixed.

  21. I've had this problem too. And haven't figured out a fix. It's happened with other VP's as well....namely when I make a change to cabinets in InteriorCAD. If I copy+paste a cabinet front another file, all the VP's move up or down. They all move the same amount though. VW 2010 SP4 Architect/InteriorCAD Macbook Pro 2.4, 3GB, 256MB video
  22. I use interiorCAD as well. Great program, but takes a while to get the hang of it. On another note, has anyone looked at Softplan? i used this program about 12 yrs ago, so not too sure where it's at now, but just thought I'd throw it out there....
  23. I have the same problem. It's very frustrating. Also, I occasionally see when zoomed back out that certain lines are not straight but appear jagged, but then zooming in, or checking the properties in the OIP it actually IS straight. I wonder if it's a video card issue. I have a 256MB card, which I thought would be enough for VW..... VW2010 SP3 Architect/InteriorCAD Macbook Pro 2.4 Ghz, OSX 10.6.4 3GB Ram, 256MB GeForce Video
  24. C'mon NNA....it's time to fix this bug. Or start refunding money. This is ridiculous.
  25. Sorry. OS is 10.6.3. The latest as far as I know. It only happens in viewports (but then, that's the only time I'm placing drawings labels....)
