  1. @Victoria Rachel Interiors a question to add to Dendecko's very nice explanation...do you have experience modeling in other programs such as Rhino? Also the point of cutting the chair (or any object for that matter) in half and then mirroring the modeled geometry to complete the object is definitely the strategy! Good luck and have some fun! Wes
  2. @Chris Rogers, for version 2022, OpenGl has been discontinued and has been replaced by "Shaded." It should perform exactly like OpenGL did. I believe the reason is a "behind the scenes" switch on Apple's behalf away from the older technology towards "Metal" technology... Wes
  3. @Abigail_ , I think Jeff Prince offers some very good suggestions. Consider the use of templates as well as styled elements. You might also read "Model Set-Up" that's pinned to the top of the Architecture section here on the forum...you can then compare that with "No Stories, No Problem" to help you gain an understanding of how and why you may consider using or not using these elements. Keep in mind that CLASSES are all about the attributes of an object - be it 2D or 3D - line weight, color, texture, hatch. And please, don't be afraid to post up here if something isn't working out for you - there are some very bright folks who can help clarify concepts. Welcome to the community! Wes
  4. @Anders Blomberg - at the moment, the Data Tag only "knows" the elevation of the bounding box so it really can't tell an elevation except at the top and bottom... Wes
  5. @liam.h.b.shaffer how about trying a viewport...use the Create Viewport command and place the plan on a sheet layer, then use the rotate tool and rotate the viewport 15 degrees, then print Wes
  6. @Tom W. , could you post a small sample file where this occurs? I'm not sure I have an answer but might stumble onto something??? Wes
  7. Like this...it uses the GetSpaceNameforObj and GetSpaceNumforObj BTW, this file, Gallery 196 is posted on Vectorworks University if you'd like to see it "in action." https://university.vectorworks.net/mod/page/view.php?id=674
  8. Here's a 24 x 36 sheet rendered at 600 dpi....it's pretty clear... Wes
  9. I get pretty good renderings but they do take a while...even so, if you zoom in, it will pixelate...
  10. To do any investigative work, I'd need an actual vwx file
  11. @Rcox, You can post up a sample here and someone can have a go at it. Wes
  12. You might want to look at Vectorworks University for workflows.
  13. @Mi&D, Hi there...yes, if they are inclined that will happen - Vectorworks cannot produce canted walls. Your best bet is to either model them from extrudes or try a roof face. If you can't get the 3D polys to behave, you may be able to edit the 3D poly and get to the 2D poly that made it (or trace a 2D poly)? If so, I would then try either roof faces of extrudes. Wes
  14. @willofmaine...not sure that you can other than placing the tag "inside" the symbol...I think I'd use STYLED windows Wes
  15. @Cammareri Landscapes - maybe a Vectorworks Preferences thing - General-Background-3D Views - in the attched image, mine is set to white... Wes
