    Cable Ramp Symbol

    Actually these are installed in the normal libraries. /Libraries/Objects - Ent Stage/Cable Protectors.vwx You can always do a search in the RM. Cheers, Peter

    hatch pattern with alternating fill colour

    Hatches can have a background colour but it is only one. As TKA says Tiles are the way to go. Cheers, Peter

    Thank you Sarah for making this metric capable. I'm sure your swift work will be appreciated by many more users around the world! Cheers, Peter

    Scissor Lift

    A really well made scissor lift that interactively goes to whatever height required in the drawing. An amazing example of the power of Marionette and what a great community there is in the Vectorworks Forum. Cheers, Peter

    Scissor Lift

    This is amazing but it does not accept units other than Imperial. So users can not put in '7m' but have to work out what it is in feet and inches (22' 11.59" ie 23'). It is only the USA, Liberia and Myanmar that use the outdated Imperial system. Please can these wonderful free marionette shares take into account units that the "The Rest of the World" are using please?! Thanks, Peter

    Service Select Portal Speed

    Yes we're on fibre optic at work and our internet connection speeds are blazingly fast. Yet the VSS portal is noticeably the slowest website I regularly go to. I bet lots of users never bother going there because it is so tedious... Cheers, Peter

    Braceworks Frustration

    Yes I have reported this as a bug on 29th Nov. I think we'll have to wait for the next service pack. The missing fields are: Low Hook to load trim Speed Voltage Total Chain length Hoist Weight Chain Weight Hoist wt with Chain You can still access the fields via a worksheet which I enclose. Cheers, Peter Hoist missing OIP SP2 worksheet.vwx

    Bug Report - The future is here!

    The problem is, how do you define what is 'Technical Support' versus 'Training'? How would it be policed? I don't think you'd be able to, and the tech support (tech training) teams would end up being huge. Peter

    Honeycomb Dome

    Matty, This is my poor attempt in between phone calls at work today. I think if the true 'quarter' was worked out correctly this will work. As it was, I made one quarter and did a circular array and you can see that they don't match but could however...maybe with a bit more head scratching. I made a vertical wall of several rows and turned into a solid and used the Deform/Bend tool in plan and elevation. In elevation you have to make sure the protractor is in the middle of the solid of course. Good luck! Cheers, Peter Honeycomb_dome_attempt_.vwx

    Replace w/ Stock Symbols VS Insert Truss & Connections

    The 'Insert Truss' tool is like the 'Lighting Instrument' tool. Any symbol, even a chair, inserted by those tools become Truss objects or Lighting devices respectively. Likewise the two commands: Convert to Truss and Convert to Instrument - same thing. A 'Truss' is a higher level object than a symbol just like a Lighting Device. Think of it as a 'Truss Device'! Cheers, Peter

    Replace w/ Stock Symbols VS Insert Truss & Connections

    Dear Wesley, Works for me: Using the Straight Truss tool, place one 12m long on the page. Make connection interval 3m. Import a 3m horizontal truss. Select Straight Truss and go Spotlight>Object Conversion>Replace with Stock Symbol. In the dialogue choose the 3m truss symbol in the pull down. The symbols will then replace the Straight truss. Select one of them and go Braceworks>Convert to Truss. Say yes to all instances. These are now all one truss system. Check in the OIP 'Select System objects" to confirm. Cheers, Peter

    Landmark 2018 Plant Database

    Hello, To remove a workgroup folder you need to go to the Vectorworks Preferences>User Folder and select the workgroup folder there and 'remove'. I don't have any problems unchecked the tick box next to the 'Update Plant DB...' so not sure why you're having that problem. Maybe remove the w folders first and see how it goes? Cheers, Peter
