    Data Tags - Hanging Position Z value

    Hello, This also might be of use to you. I posted this some months ago on the entertainment forum. Data tags that dynamically report the weights of Hanging Positions. Cheers, Peter Hanging positions and weight.vwx

    About Attribute mapping tool?

    Thanks and yes definitely - the Cloud Services are really worth using and exploring. Saves doing it all on your machine. Cheers, Peter

    About Attribute mapping tool?

    Hello, Sorry to hijack this thread but I couldn't resist using your image as a glow texture. This was rendered pretty quickly using the Vectorworks Cloud Services - much faster than my new highly spec'd MBP. Cheers, Peter Glow floor 2.vwx

    Stage Deck Fill

    Dear Dave, I think the Floor command is the easiest way to create hybrid objects (Spotlight>Architectural>Floor). Less complex than slabs and really useful - and not just for floors they can be used for anything. Unless you need to do a symbol count I use the floor command for the whole stage. Just give it a 'thickness' and an elevation if need be. You can clip or add or reshape at your heart's content and it remains hybrid (as does a slab). Cheers, Peter

    Stop Camera From Moving?

    Dear Bruce, Whenever you activate a camera and you get to it's view, if you then want to move around and don't want the camera to move with you, click the 'Deactivate' button in the OIP first. Then as suggested by michaelk above, choose the walkthrough tool but I suggest the second option the 'Look Around mode' to rotate as if on a tripod. Cheers, Peter

  9. Hello, In the enclosed file is it possible to extract the curved facing surface of the Subdivision object and create one NURBS Surface? No matter what I try I only get to the point of 25 NURBS surfaces which can't 'Compose' or 'Add Solids' in order to extract the one surface for extraction. I was hoping to have one NURBS Surface to use the Surface Array command. Thanks for any help. Peter Sub.vwx

    Aha it was Luis M Ruiz on this thread that's just come up again in the forum: His render is much better than my copy! Cheers, Peter

    Revisiting the Hunt and Peck

    The Help which is really very good these days does show the path to where commands lie. Cheers, Peter
  13. Yes I agree that it is incongruous to the normal expected workflow. It should at least be available the first time the Object Properties comes up. I fourth this request! Cheers, Peter

    Change label color with light

    It works in 2019 and I think was fixed earlier - at least if this is what you're after. File enc. Cheers, Peter Spotlight colour test.vwx

    3D plants

    Hello BJR, These are difficult to come by as the market is so small. The two that I know of are these: http://www.envirographic.com (NZ company) http://xfrog.com/category/libraries.html (US based. Scroll down to Oceania for Australian ones) These are not 3D models but rather images you can use to create image props from. The best format to use is PNG (they generally come with a number of different formats). Always use the low resolution versions unless you intend to use the plant really close up. If they lowered their prices I'm sure Vectorworks, Inc. could incorporate them into the local libraries. Cheers, Peter PS as you must know there are already quite a few Oz Image props in the library.
