    Grade tool information missing when viewport moved

    Hi Helen I would advise using the Grade tool on the Design Layer as it needs to interact with the site model, unless you are using it purely as a 2D graphic.

    Site Model 2D Cut & Fill Display Not Working in VW 2018

    I just tested this in SP3, and it is working fine for me. You do need to set the 3D Style to Cut and Fill. The Cut and Fill display is a 3D option, not a 2D option.

    VW 2012 to 2018. Excellent!

    It's our pleasure!

    No need for shame David. You produce some beautiful models.

    Vectorworks UK team

    Hi all Thanks for your kind comments Barkest and David S. We are very excited to be part of the Vectorworks family and are looking forward to working with you all in the UK. Just to clarify, the conference on 3rd October 2017 was originally being organised by Exertis, but following the transition, is now being run by the new Vectorworks office in the UK. If you would like to join us, please register here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/bim-and-digital-practices-tickets-36396951261 We are also running events at our Newbury office on 5th October 2017: Architects and Interior Designers: http://bit.ly/2gDsxcS Landscape Designers: http://bit.ly/2eJTIWK As David S mentioned, Vectorworks Inc has acquired one of its former resellers (Design Software Solutions Ltd), to form its first office outside the US. Vectorworks UK Ltd is a wholly owned subsidiary of Vectorworks, Inc and is now providing Vectorworks Service Select in the UK. Customers in the UK can continue to deal with their current chosen reseller.

    Parametric Books

    Thanks for this amazing tool Stephan. A huge timesaver for interior scenes and will work really nicely for all Vectorworks users, but especially Interiorcad users. I love the Penguin classic covers too.

    Create Site Model from Mesh

    Hi Sarah What an excellent resource this is! Thank you so much for putting it together. It's something we're often asked for, and our customers will really appreciate this tool. Users just need to bear in mind that this will create a rectangular grid of points from the top left of the mesh's bounding box, to the bottom right. So, you may end up with points you don't need, and will have to remove those before creating the site model.

    Export Site model to IFC

    Hi Laura I have had a look at both files. The reason your site model will not export to ifc is because the design layer that contains it has been mapped to the wrong story on the IFC export dialog. To resolve the problem, choose File > Export IFC Project. Click Layer Mapping. Move Design Layer-1 to the story named Site. It will not export if it is mapped to any other story. Hope that helps. Good luck. Tamsin

    My journey thru Marionette

    Thanks for this great resource Luis! Can't wait to get stuck in. Me and my team are fascinated by the possibilities of Marionette. It's great to see the ideas dawning on our customers' faces too when we show it to them.

    DTM modifer calculating as CUT instead of FILL volume

    Are they enclosed within a Grade Limit object?
  12. You're welcome?I'm glad you got it sorted. But you should not need to to Project Screen Objects if the Viewport is set to Top/Plan... Is it possible your Viewport was in a Top view instead of a Top/Plan view? Top view is a 3D view from the top, and therefore would not display the 2D part of the stake. If you change it to Top/Plan, you should see the 2D part of the stakes and also the 2D settings that you have chosen for your Site Model.
  13. Hi Neil Stake Objects are hybrid, so they have a 2D display and a 3D element. Click Stake Tool Preferences on the tool bar. Change the mode of the stake to Site Modifier, and set it to change the Proposed model. Choose also what you would like displayed in the Label. Click OK, then place your stakes. Use the Z value to set the desired elevation. In Top/Plan, this is what you'll see displayed by the Stake. No need to duplicate them. Hope that helps.

    Place Plant tool and get totals query in worksheet?

    Use Tools > Reports > Choose Schedule. Then select Plant List Simple (for example). This will give you a list of all the plant objects present in the drawing. For more information on creating plant schedules, we have a couple of videos on this page that you might find useful: http://www.vectorworks-training.co.uk/buy-vectorworks/training-for-design-vectorworks-training-gifts/
