  1. would you consider the wall tool for an edge or border, such as metal or wood headers ? you can get lengths to the edging in a worksheet - putting the border on a separate class allows you to control the graphic appearance and easily manage its visibility - this sounds like a lot of extra work, but provides control and management -
  2. @Matt Panzer Your creativity and knowledge of VW is needed to assist with a workflow using the fence tool - 1. reduce the current multiple fence symbols to allow for post and stringer/panel offsets 2. smooth the layout in 3D 3. having a gate feature
  3. Thank you all for the great feedback: A quick update - I received a CSV file and was able to separate various elements (like road, deck, building) so making a simple file of just topo was easy - The CSV info imported easily and created a site model - now adding additional info such as roads, buildings etc is next -
  4. thank you, I had a feeling it was something like that -
  5. I do not have a clue to the next steps to convert this file to a site model - any assistance is appreciated - versions 2021 and 2020 enclosed - Is there a conversion for the lines or polygon info into stake or locus ? sam test 2021-06-01 v2020.vwx sam test 2021-06-01.vwx
  6. Weird Al Yankovic (who went to Cal Poly SLO for architecture) has nothing on Jeff P
  7. and a backup by Benson who always comes through is a bonus
  8. can we nominate this thread for the VW hall of fame ?? Mixing real world sound (DEVO) and graphics (VW) deserves a prize
  9. Can you move to top/plan view (possibly the view does not matter) and then move the insertion point to a corner of the landscape area or a location of your choosing ? I assume it has to do with textures or hatches
  10. you may have wireframe rendering in plan view - open gl should show fills
  11. I tried to have record formats in a symbol provide a total in a data tag without luck - Vectorworks hopefully is aware of this need -
  12. Thank you Pat, I assume I can add a record format to count ? but hoped there was already a quantity/count function in the existing data tag options
  13. Can data tags be used to count symbols instances (such as light fixtures) on a design layer I tried customizing an existing data tag and cannot find a 'quantity' or 'count' function
  14. Great resource links to get you started and inspired : Danilo Maffei: https://university.vectorworks.net/mod/scorm/player.php?a=61&currentorg=articulate_rise&scoid=122 Jonathan Reeves:
