  1. Were the position Names the same as what the FP names you were attempting to create?
  2. Mark: Thanks for your input, appreciated. Hadn't considered the object name instancing as a possible problem, but (anecdotally, as I'm not near a VW file with that issue at the moment) I don't seem to think that'd be the issue, esp when I'm naming FPs something along the lines of DR, MR, UR, DR1, MR1, UR1, for ex. But that brings up a question: What's the easiest way to create a list of all objects, sorted by name?
  3. I occasionally experience the same issue. Extremely irritating
  4. Thanks for the detail. makes the tablet an appealing notion. Do you feel that it's lessened detrimental physical repercussions of computer work?
  5. Jonathon; any chance you could elaborate on how you use the Wacom with VWX? TiA
  6. Lofting got me as shown in under two minutes: Top and bottom octos, drawn with multi-side tool, Top face sent top proper Z value, nurbs line drawn to connect two vertices as shown, both polys converted to nurbs (ungroup post-nurbing as nec), Loft w/ One Rail Mode (middle Loft choice). Choose ONE poly, doesnt matter which and loft away!
  7. I use this feature heavily, with the nudge set to a grid increment.
  8. Maybe create a VS script which deploys the menu function "Save a Copy…", keeps original name and appends date+time or simple iterative number to filename and pops it into a specified folder?
  9. I'm cheap n nasty too! exactly how I have done this in the past, esp. for those tent end cap walls. Works a charm.
  10. Simpler to duplicate the symbol edit to taste and insert or replace as needed.
  11. Just occurred to me that your experience with people struggling to use the desktop VW, or Skype, or Bluebeam or what have you is likely to cause e a similar result when expecting folks to harvest their own data set from your model, not to mention what's to stop them from harvesting data they should be nowhere near? Talk about a potential security nightmare…
  12. Additionally, it should alert user to catalog update when complete without disturbing workflow in any way.
  13. CMD + S after every major change, at the minimum. W/ re Autosave, I keep the latest 20 or so files, then every week go through and delete half or more of those from the VW backup folder.
  14. One other thing: if the PDF is vector-based, you should be able in the PDF's OIP click "snap to geometry' which can make things much easier.
  15. What @JimW said. Rendering in a viewport/sheet layer has improved my life hugely.
  16. Awesome! Cannot wait to see the fruit of that labor. A catenary is something I need 4x per year at least, and when it's wrong, it's just not right.
  17. Andy and Pat: I am this thread avidly. Messiness, grit, difference, upon request? I say yes please!
  18. An easy-to-use fantastic tool. I don't use it every day, but it works easily quickly flawlessly every time I do. And—it's free
  19. A great informative thread, thanks all
