  1. Door swing notation also takes into account the type of room and/or the side of the door that is locked. So you need to also denote left or right hand reverse if applicable. In Canada, the hinge lines point toward the hinges.
  2. Thanks, Pat. I like the suggestion about a template file. The only benefit of the script was just to save time. The only problem with the template file is I move my laptop between home and work and the saved views are different between my monitors. But I'll create the template and try it out. Thanks
  3. A question for the scripting gurus. I use saved views a lot in my workflow to export patterns to DXF for import into my CNC software. Every design layer has a rectangle to represent a sheet of MDF or plywood, in the same position on every layer (0,0). I save a view of each layer (named cnc 1, cnc 2, cnc 3 and so on). I can have quite a view layers and saved views by the time I'm done processing a project onto the panels. See attached screenshot of a typical view. What I would like is a script that would allow me to save the saved views automatically - not to have to flip to every layer and save the view individually. I would like to select the layers, and the view, and make a saved view for each one, if that makes sense. Is this possible? mid-2015 MacBook Pro, Mojave VW2021, SP4 InteriorCAD
  4. I can't get the migration manager to stop crashing, and I'd like my 2020 workspace back. I see I can export the workspace, but I can't seem to do a manual import. Is this possible? And if not, what could be crashing the migration manager? I've attached some report screenshots. It seems no matter what I select to migrate, it either crashes, or fails to import anything. It looks like ConnectCAD is failing. I don't even know what that is. Thanks VW2021Sp4, mid-2015 MacBook pro, Mojave.
  5. Steep learning curve? Yes and no. Placing and customizing cabinets using the cabinetmaker tool is fairly intuitive and straightforward. Customizing things after with the suite of InteriorCAD tools is less intuitive. I always found that the videos made it look so easy, but doing in reality was more difficult. Either way, I've had good support from the InteriorCAD staff, so you're never too far from help. InteriorCAD's @Stephan Moenninghoff is quite active on the forum and responds quickly.
  6. InteriorCAD. The tools you're using are basic teasers to the full version of that. If you draw cabinets with any regularity, it's a no-brainer.
  7. Well I couldn't hear anything on the front dimension videos, but I didn't need to. This is GREAT news. Finally we can specify the front sizes! What a time saver this will be.
  8. Are these problems widespread? I just purchased a SpaceMouse Compact wireless, but haven't received it yet. Wondering if I should try to cancel the order....
  9. Ok, yeah I think it was my saved view that was giving me the problem. I'll play with this some more.
  10. Ok, I'll try that.
  11. I do. But my saved view is a top/plan view, and it doesn't save the clip cube bounding box. That is only saved if I'm saving a 3D view. Maybe this is by design? If I go to my top/plan saved view, and then changed to a 3D view, I have to reset the clip cube box all over again. It doesn't stay activated.
  12. Are there settings for the clip cube somewhere? I feel like I'm doing something wrong. It seems to have no memory of the last settings. It would be nice if, when going to a sheet layer and then going back to the design layer that the clip cube would retain the bounding box size. Every time I move away from the design layer I have to reset the clip cube again. What's the trick? VW 2020 SP6, architect, interiorCAD Macbook Pro, mid-2015
  13. If after the first click the bezier is initiated, then hitting delete doesn't take you back to starting with a straight line, it keeps the bezier mode enabled. So you need to start again. Not a big deal, but better if I don't have to do that at all. Either way, I will try to embrace this thing, or swap my 5 and 8 shortcuts to get around it.
  14. Yes, I have. And I've tried to get in the habit of using that instead of the poly line tool. I'm getting old and old habits die hard. I've been using '5' for drawing a polyline for 12 years now. I'm going to try swapping the shortcuts in my workspace. See if that helps.
  15. It's not the helper line that's the problem, but when using the poly line tool, there is a function that if you click on a point quickly and move away at an angle, it switches to bezier vertex mode all of a sudden. Which sucks when you're just trying to draw some straight lines.
  16. Thanks for responding. Yes, I do click "quickly" when I get going on drawing, which activates this feature all - the - time. It seems to be way more eager to activate in later versions of VW. And this 'feature' really slows things down. And my question is why is it there at all? It seems like one of those things that might look good for the sales brochure, but useless in reality. Or, I'm in the minority and other users love it. Either way, it's certainly is a killer in my workflow. Wish I could deactivate it. Maybe it should be a preference option.
  17. I don't understand. Why is the implied bezier curve with the poly line tool is so eager to activate?? And why is this a feature at all? There are options for different curves in the mode bar, if I wanted something other than a straight line, I would select a different mode. This "feature" drives me crazy. Sometimes the software needs to get out of the way so you can get some work done.
  18. Why does the split tool not work? Seems to work fine for me.
  19. It looks lie ghost lines that aren't actually there, a graphical bug. Did you try shutting down VW and re-starting?
  20. I'm wondering how others are showing wood grain direction, specifically for millwork shop drawings? In rare instances, I will render in openGL. But what I really want is a more basic graphic representation of woodgrain that is part of the model, and will update automatically. Sometimes I will use the little grain arrows, but that can make an elevation look really busy when there are stiles and rails. Also, it doesn't give a good idea of the look of the installed millwork, which is needed sometimes to help homeowners visualize the end product. I have attached an elevation for reference. The grain is shown with rectangles with a hatch, and no pen thickness for the outside of the rectangle. But is slow and cumbersome, and doesn't update with the model. Surely there is a better way that I'm missing? I have InteriorCAD, and use both interiorCAD cabinets, as well as basic 3D shapes to create the millwork units.

  21. Following along here. A quick question about interfaces. How well does InteriorCAD interface with Biesseworks?
  22. Ok, I'll give that a go. Thanks.
  23. Thanks, Stephan. I have been working through the University videos, very helpful. But back to the contour for the gable notching, why do I see the width of the contour in my viewport? What does the width of the contour refer to, and how to I view just the cutout, not the width of the contour as well?
  24. @Stephan Moenninghoff - can you tell me how to notch this partition? I have a sink going here and want to show the cutout. Also - how is the InteriorCAD manual coming along? I asked some time ago and I think you said it was not far away. There is a lot of functionality within InteriorCAD that I know I'm not using - a manual would be ideal. Or a lot of tutorial videos. I see the marketing videos, and they look great, but they don't show anything in enough detail to be useful. Thanks VW2020SP6 Macbook Pro, Mid-2015 Mojave
