  1. Wes, do you have this VW2019 Architect format? Also, what Data Tag Type did you use?
  2. Do you have this for VW 2019 Archotect? I know, I am behind here.
  3. Try Hidden Line Rendering. Wireframe shows all
  4. Depending on what you are trying to do, you might try Create Wall Projection and Create Wall Recess. If using VW Architect, located under AEC Menu approx. 1/2 way down. You are able to select which wall component texture to apply.
  5. Beginner Tip! Lets say you have imported a .dwg or .pdf file. We want to trace where the exterior walls will be using the polyline tool from the Basic Tool Set. If it is simple rectangle, use the rectangle tool from the Basic Tool Set. Select the trace, make sure it is selected. I have a reference line to verify wall is tracing to the correct face or wal component edge. Select Building Shell Tool Set Left click on Wall Select wall style you want to use. Go to AEC Menu, select Create Objects From Shapes This window will pop up We will leave the Delete Source Shapes unchecked for now as we want to do some other tests. If you check this box your trace, rectangle, polyline, etc.. will be deleted. Make sure your wall trace is how you want it. Keeping the source trace is good in case you make a mistake, or the results of the wallt trace did not come out as you expected. You can always delete it later. In this example we will use the Custom Offset option I have preselected a 2x4 framed wall with components 1" thick siding 1/2" thick OSB 3-1/2" Stud 1/2" thick gypsum wall board (drywall) If we add all the components we get 5-1/2". Half of that is 2-3/4" which is the center of the wall. Custom offset is based on center of total wall thickness. In our example, we want to have the wall auto trace to the outside face of the OSB. This means 5-1/2 / 2 =2-3/4" (Half the total wall thickness) - 1" (Siding)= 1-3/4". You will notice it says -1.75. That is because we want the wall to move inwards. If we wanted to use the inside face of the stud we would have used 2.25. 2-3/4" - 1/2" (gwb) = 2-1/4" Click OK Thsi is the result. This is faster than selecting a wall and tracing the drawing. By having the reference line, you are able to verify that the Custom Offest traced the walls where we wanted. You are able to delete the reference line also. Have Fun!
  6. Ron, Got me thinking. I just created (2) new classes for now. 2D Siding_GWB 2D INT GWB Assign the respective wall components EX: Exterior wood framed walls. Siding and GWB to 2D Siding_GWB Make invisible in 2D, make visible in 3D Being a number 1st in the class name, always at top of list Interior partition walls with gwb, assign the gwb to the 2D INT GWB Class and do the same. Works great.
  7. Ron, Good idea. Appreciate the input.
  8. There is always https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2021/eng/VW2021_Guide/Worksheets/Worksheet_functions.htm
  9. Check your computer system settings I was having random windows restarts, thought it was VW2019. VW 2019 was not the issue. See if this helps. Open File Manager Left click on Yellow Folder on Task Bar at Bottom Right Click on This PC Click on properties In the window that opens, to the right under related settings click on Advanced system settings System Properties windows opens Startup & Recovery - Settings Midway down under System Failure - Uncheck Automatically restart Click OK, OK
  10. Open File Manager Right Click on This PC Click on properties In the window that opens, to the right under related settings click on Advanced system settings System Properties windows opens Startup & Recovery - Settings Midway down under System Failure - Uncheck Automatically restart Click OK, OK
  11. Open File Manager Right Click on This PC Click on properties In the window that opens, to the right under related settings click on Advanced system settings System Properties windows opens Startup & Recovery - Settings Midway down under System Failure - Uncheck Automatically restart Click OK, OK
  12. I have discovered, that on my Windows machine it would randomly restart the computer, regardless of software I was running. I changed the setting and no more random shutdowns. I use Windows because I have other software that has no MAC equivalent. FYI: Architect 2019 Will upgrade to 2022 by years end.
