  1. Hello,

    If you select more than one Truss System in order to change the height via the 'Change Trim Height of System' in the OIP,  you can't as the option is then greyed out. However I just discovered a way to do it easily and thought I'd share. 

    Just select all trusses and motors with the selection tool and choose the Move 3D command from the Modify menu. In any view, enter the number in the Z field and the trusses move accordingly with the motors staying put.

    Very quick movie no sound attached.

     

    Cheers,

    Peter

  2. Dear Sam,

    To be clear I'm highlighting the (new to v2020) Live Data Visualisation rather than viewport Data Visualisation. For example being able to instantly check Type versus Universe such in the enclosed screenshots without leaving the design layer.

     

    Cheers,

    Then I copied and pasted-in-place each layer, one at a time, from the converted 2019 file to the new 2020 file. Thankfully, I had only 7 active layers.

     

    Hello,

    Use the Layer Import option next time - no need to copy and paste in place!

     

    Cheers,

  4. 3D Loci like the 2D ones are reference points and can not be resized and do not print. Not sure what you mean about 3 lines but that sounds like you need to update your GPU driver of try changing your Vectorworks Preferences>Display>Navigation Graphics>change to Good Performance and Compatibility. Either way the process is a step in order to create a Vectorworks intelligent Digital Terrain Model (Site Model) from a Point Cloud.

     

    Cheers,

    To access this page simply open the Truss Properties window and choose "Change Cross Section".

     

    Thanks Justin for this information and that diagram is very useful. I'm sure the button for 'Change Cross Section' used to be in the OIP but I can only get to this now by right clicking the Truss object and finding it in the contextual menu. Is that the only way to access 'Change Cross Section'?

     

    Thanks,

    Peter

  6. Hello,

    I agree with the comments here. In my beginners class for professionals, within the first 90 minutes, I get them to change the selection colour to a light blue and the pre-selection to a light green with a delay timer of a few seconds. Jeremy's use of the thicker width to overlap the preselection colour is a good idea without a delay. However having a timer delay mostly avoids the issue. I find working for a long time that the blue and green are easier on the eyes than the orange.

     

    Cheers,

    Peter

  7. I know it’s not what you want to hear, but another advantage of Dropbox is the LAN Sync preference. This means that for those in the office, interaction with the Project File will occur across the local network, so syncing is much faster. Only those working remotely will be actually using the cloud.

     

    Cheers,
