  1. So Jim W, VW Guru replied (below) that increase of VRAM is key to faster rendering Regular RAM is important but maxes out at 32GB Zoomer has the correct review of It appears you can add an 8GB Vegas graphic card as an external component at $800 US, but I have not seen a 16GB card as mentioned below except as an upgrade to the new iMac Pro but the cost of $5,600 US- BTW the base iMac Pro has a 8GB Vegas graphic card at $5,000 US Good Luck The following thread was from Mac Recommendations thread in the General Discussion area: Jim W replies that's the way i'd go That's the way I'd go!
  2. Thank you, CipesDesign, I appreciate the quick response I am able to add a hatch or tile to a hardscape, but the hatch or tile does not appear when viewing a 3D view. I then added a polygon with the hatch or tile on top of the hardscape and it appears when in 3D views, shadows on these polygons show inconsistently.
  3. Happy Holidays to All I am hoping to add joint patterns to hardscape in 3D views. Hatches do not work and I am not happy with the results converting hatches to textures. What is the best way to add joint patterns to 3D ? I have searched the forum without luck- there is probably a tutorial but I cannot find it- Thank you
  4. You can review the class attributes of the plant symbols and adjust them as needed- use the graphics of the plants as a study and improve them as desired. Think of them as inspiration and make them better....... You can add graphics to these plant symbols and tie the new graphics to classes so you can adjust the planting when in schematic, design development or permit/construction drawings- also consider the 3D graphics of each plant symbol.
  5. michaelk The issue fixed itself ?? It is not recurring thank you for your interest BC
  6. I have included published drawing with the random resizing of the drawing labels 349 Manuella *.pdf
  7. I am using drawing labels in symbols, imported from a VW2017 file. When publishing sheet layers that have viewports of the symbols, the drawing labels are resizing to an unreadable size. After several resizing the drawing labels in the symbols and getting the same results, I fixed the issue BUT I had to ungroup the drawing label in the symbol. I would like to have the drawing labels remain in the symbols. AM I using drawing labels incorrectly ? Publishing incorrectly ? Any help is appreciated
  8. I am using a worksheet from an upgraded 2017 file to 2018 version, and when I ask for edit criteria of a database line, VW crashes
  9. A worksheet in 2017 that functions in version 2017, crashes Vectorworks when I convert it to 2018 and then try to edit criteria of a database in version 2018
  10. We are using VW 2018 The resource browser shows a Workgroup folder but does not show the contents of the folder we have linked using vectorwork preferences. The link is to a dropbox folder that the office uses. Any help is appreciated Bob C
  11. It would be great to have a loop main feature for irrigation systems. We use loop mains all the time and appreciate VW considering the adjustment to the main line. There is a pressure savings when a loop main which provides better water distribution. thank you
  12. Benson- Thank you for the vimeo tutorial for adjusting the bridging issue. Fantastic use of VW tools to fix the bridging. Once you get accustomed to the keyboard shortcuts for the 3dLoci, objects along path and 3d polygon, it should go quick
  13. I would like the service select component of vectorworks to render sheet layers while I work on a local copy of the file. Is this possible ?? a workflow ?? should I frequently send a copy of the file to the service select ??
  14. It would be great to have plant images from the plant database in a cell on a plant list worksheet. Alternatively, the ability to create a worksheet with plant images from the plant database using plants on a design layer.
  15. I just placed a plant list on a sheet layer, selected the worksheet and selected classes and the worksheet reflected the classes. Now we need the ability to place images from the plant database into a worksheet so clients can review the plant palette-
  16. thank you for clarifying Are you giving all the seminars ? We will be signing up for the February classes
  17. Can anyone share their review of the landmark seminar by Eric Gilbey We are considering the February seminar and would like feedback of the just completed program Thank you
  18. The Disto 800 by Leica, a handheld measuring device, is a possibilty It records 3D info and has storage of recorded info and pictures of points selected Downsides: red laser may be difficult to see in bright sunlight and objects needing selection may be obscured by elements (plants etc) in between
  19. Alan W- thank you for the link to Changing Minds, this is an incredible resource The forums here are priceless Bob C
  20. J. Wallace, thank you for the quick easy guide We have many of the same issues with 3D loci showing up in renderings Bob C
  21. The help guide says to add a hydrozone record format to a landscape area you select data in object info palette and then it appears in the resource manager. I do not have the record format for hydrozones available. Am I looking in the wrong place ?? thank you
  22. The access to the plant info and the real time plan adjustments and plant info updating is wonderful- let me know how to set up the program accordingly Thank you
  23. Canon plotter IPF710 We removed the existing printer in the printer system preference and then reloaded it and the plotter works. To add the the canon printer use the setup app found in the canon utilities folder in the applications folder.
  24. Peter- I will be aware of the issues in Publish, thank you Benson- If I get the workflow, I will share it
