  1. Tx for the replies. At the office they are now using Lumion with VW and it looks fantastic. I think livelinking VW to Lumion is at the moment the best option for VW. If you have the budget it will save you tons of time compared to any other option.
  2. I was wondering why my favorite program VW has noneof the great render plugins like Corona, Redshift, Octane or you name it. Or why does it not have plugins for easy export to Blender or Unreal Engine for instance. It has for C4D and that works fine. But you end up getting a list of extra subscriptons on top of VW. All other CAD apps like 3dsMax, Archicad, Revit, Sketchup, Blender, C4D and so have a wealth of add-ons. VW stands alone with an old outdated render engine. There is Lumion off course which is great but you wonder why there is no such thing for others.
  3. Hi, is it possible to assign a renderworks texture to project a texture on a group of objects or on a group of extruded rectangulars ? Just like a material to project on a group in C4D. I am trying to texture an elevation of wooden boards in one go. But all I get is each board showing the same texture which looks very repetative. I can convert the extruded set of rectangulars to one mesh and set the texture to the mesh. That works but not all that controlable. Any idea's anyone. Vectorworks really needs to upgrade texturing. Its way to basic for most architects in 2020. Also much to complex to manage.
  4. Tx Larry. I changed my settings. As I understand now rotating plans can greatly effect precision. As I experienced in the past a well. Imagine plans are rotated along tilded axis all the time during a worksession files get completely messed up. I always thought it was just a screen/pixel related rotation.
  5. It was a file of 1.2 GB. But now in a 20 Mb file I also experience small but annoying off sets in the precision of geometry. 71 mm become 71.4 mm. After a few plan rotations...in a 12 Mb file.
  6. Found the problem. The label takes the textsize defined in the class regardless the settings in the labels Object Info. My labels ended up in de class dimension.. A bit confusing at times when the class setting is dominant over de object info plugin settings. They should be grayed out in case they are overruled.
  7. Hi, In a new file I can change the text size of a drawing label but in a working file with labels already present I can no longer change the text size for drawing labels. Although I can push all the right buttons the text size won't change anymore. So going to do some viewports at a larger scale the drawing labels are miniture labels without any change of enlarging them. The max. text size of 36 is a in some cases also a bit small especialle when I am making a few 1:1 details. Any idea what is happening ?
  8. Did not see a response yet. Anyhow, I did a rotate plan in a rather large file and after it could no longer use the eyedropper tool. Had ro copy paste everything in a new file. Does anyone else has these kind of experriences ?
  9. Hi, maybe a question for a VW staff expert: Here at our office we have for years now forbidden to use the tool "rotate plan" in 2D drawings on design layers. In the past we noticed you can have serious problems with precision and dimensions in your drawings. Things seems to change after a rotate plan and turning back to zero again. Is this still a problem or has it been addressed or has it never been reported by others ? In other words, does a rotate plan changes the coordinates of objects in a file, even ever so slightly ?
  10. This is a screenshot of a drawing I am working on. I have the current issue date in the TBB. Not being able to list current issue dates is a bit odd.
  11. that was it , tx Nikolay But maybe VW can provide a current issue date record field for the next SP.
  12. Tx Nikolay. So VW can not produce a list of current issue dates....2020.. To Pat, pasted this here below without luck, any idea why ? =IF(('Title Block Issue Data-1'.'Date')<>'', ('Title Block Issue Data-1'.'Date'), IF(('Title Block Issue Data- 2'.'Date')<>'', ('Title Block Issue Data-2'.'Date'), IF(('Title Block Issue Data-3'.'Date')<>'', ('Title Block Issue Data-3'.'Date'), '')))
  13. and I see I am still a Vectorworks apprentice although I go back to the days of MiniCad from the 80's :-) ....
  14. Hi Pat, tx a lot. ='Title Block Border'.'Current Issue Number' worked perfectly. Also for Revision Number. I tried ='Title Block Border'.'Current Issue Date" but that did not work. Any idea ?
  15. I will refrase: is it possible to have a worksheet listing all curent title block sheet numbers and their corresponding most recent issue-number and issue-date in 3 columns ? Any help is very appreciated. Cheers Francois
