  1. As I posted in an earlier topic regarding my import problem.... 'I recently upgraded my PC to a newer heavier duty system. I have VW 12.5 installed on Windows Vista AMD 64 X2 5000 system with 4gb ram. I've run the 12.5 update on my original VW 12.1, which would not run at all on this system. I was happy to see that 12.5 fixed that problem, at least I could open drawings etc. Unfortunately I need to open a DWG file, which when I try importing I get a message that 'I have insufficient memory. At least 25893k must be available to import this file', ..the file is around 600k !!!!!!!!!! ???? Is this a setting error somewhere, or am I doing something wrong? Any help would be appreciated.
  2. Looks like we are experiencing similar problems. I have a similar message coming up for importing DWG, posted elewhere on this forum. I'll watch the posts here too with interest as once I manage to import, I will obviously at some point need to export!

  4. Thanks guys, I now feel like a table tennis fan who has been shown Wimbledon for the first time.... Its all on a grander scale.
  5. thanks for the input on this problem. I think I've managed to get the immediate problem out of the way, though for the drawings I have already created for this client I need to now review every layout, change the scaling to 1:1, allocate items in the drawing into the different classes that suit their layer structure. I have exported out on the dwg option for 2004-5-6 and seen the classes converted back into layers that read on Autocad 2005. So in essence, using your comments I'm now a happy bunny! I have tried to create a 1:1 template with all the relevant items I use daily already represented, i.e 'shelving' drawn in 'green' penline with 'shopfittings' as a class, but what seems to happen when I import the original drawing at 1:1 into the new template at 1:1 is that the scale occassionally wanders, which I have yet to sort out properly. Thats possibly my next posting if I cant ratify the problem with the scale wander! thanks Steve
  6. Hi guys , great forum. I have been using VW 12 and before that VW 10 in an environment where we created our drawings in 1 layer, often in 3d and then rendered for presentation (in the shopfitting industry). Easy stuff from most peoples experiences here and no importing or exporting was required. I'm now in a quandry as my knowledge base is not adequate for the new situation I'm in, which is.... Client sends me an Autocad drawing, in several layers, which classify line colours for different parts of the project, i.e, Ceiling detail,display fittings,shopfitters notes, supplier stands etc. I at present prefer using Vectorworks as its what I know, so I import the single dwg file, work on it as I need to, then, when complete, export back to dwg. Client at the other end does not get back a file he is happy with as the various layers do not export back and the file size increases to around 4mb from the original 570k. Could someone here advise me on how to best import the Autocad file, then work on the relevant layers individually, so that when I export back out the file size is not so large and opens in the same way as the Autocad guy expects? Or do I need to learn autocad and spend more money on software? thanks in advance for your assistance on this guys.!!!
  7. I've looked through the manual but cannot seem to see the answer to what I know must be a simple setting change. Every time I group a set of objects in 2d they change from Container class to A-plan class. When I go to 3d view the item is missing until I change the object properties again. Can someone help? Point me in the right direction. Using VW 12. thanks
