  1. could someone help me with the flyover tool please im trying to rotate around my view with the flyover tool and also while it is in open GL sometimes i am able to rotate while retaining the model but the majority of the time it is always re-rendering the model everytime i move the thing when i happen to get it right and it works it is always by chance and i am not sure what i am clicking to make it work . this is most frustrating . thought id worked it out last night at home on my pc by switching to the working plane each time before i moved it around but when i got to work this morning on the mac no such luck . for a bout 5 minutes this morning it worked but i have no idea what i did to get it that way.... please help
  2. hi could someone please help me with a problem. i have some symbols that need editing and i can get into the symbol to edit it but the problem is that the symbol was made from an extrude then chamfered then i added a texture.if i want to change the height of the door frame i have to ungroup it which takes me from a chamfer to an extrude . i then change the height but then have to apply the chamfer all over again then the texture. the doors that i am doin are made of several parts like this and it is just as quick to start again from scratch. is there a way of speeding up this process by accessing the extrude without removing the chamfer and texture like in programs like solidworks or am i up a dirty creek without something to create motion alan
  3. the door symbols are made up of 3 extrudes, a frame,3 rails and 10 center panels then grouped together im working in fundamentals so i also have to add a 2d symbol to it as well. i have several doors all are different widths and heights, so i have created 1 symbol and am trying to create the others from this one the frame if i try to resize it it seems to affect the width of the frame, ie it is 75mm all round when i try to say make it go from 3000mm to 2600mm with the resize tool it makes the sides of the frame go down to 68mm leaving the head of the frame at 75mm therefore i have to break it down into lines so i can shorten the width then build it back up by extruding it again im obviously doin something wrong (like fundamentally)
  4. hi could someone please tell me the quickest and less brain taxing method of editing 3d symbols please . i have many several to do (and i mean many) and quite frankly they are doin my head in i seem to be doin lots of converting to lines but then having to eventually pick out the lines and separate them because there seem to be so many layers of lines once ive done this its easy just compose the lines and extrude again but surely theres an easier way i have so many different size doors and windows to do that eventually im just goin to scream
  5. could somebody please tell me how to create a 3d door symbol for my model creating a window was no problem but when i try to do a door its a different story altogether by the way im using fundamentals thank you
  6. thanks petri im new to the programme so just trying to see whats best for the job, but you did make me laugh thanks
  7. hi thanks for that. just got to work out how to position the window in the wall now. everytime i put the window in half of it is through the floor
  8. hi travis im using fundamentals because its what they use here at work. ive only been here 6 weeks and am trying to get my boss to use architect. thanks for your input though, it is much appreciated
  9. could someone possibly tell me the best way to create 3d walls in fundamentals. the wall tool or extrudes or nurbs curves. having problems putting in doors and windows with the wall tool as i have to subtract solids and then that part of the wall looses its properties with the extrude im always continually having to adjust everything oh so many ?s

  11. hi there everyone ive just started using vectorworks and i am new to the programme. i was trained in autocad so i know what i want the programme to do. ive started to draw a model of a hotel conference centre and i cannot get the working plane to work in the model .. at all !! i can get it to work in another drawing and i can also cut and paste parts of the model into another drawing and the working plane works fine there and i can then put it back into the original model .... but i dont think this is the way it is supposed to be done could anyone help me with this problem as i am to far into the model to start again
