  1. @Josh-gsy...that could work...you may have some issues at the edges...try a couple of simple ones and see which results produce the best objects for your design.
  2. Hi All, At this point, Data Vis does not support INOBJECT which is what would be needed to look inside the hanging position for the truss object. Wes
  3. In fact, we recommend doing your rendering in viewports...and as fabrica points out, you can change the DPI of the sheet layer...I usually go to 300 for anything rendered. Yes, it takes a little longer for the rendering...
  4. @Josh-gsy...maybe use the Split tool in the second mode and use the underside of the roof face as your guide to split the "ceiling". In this case, the ceiling is a simple extrude
  5. @nakedeye...if you can, post a sample file so we can see what's up... Wes
  6. @milezee...since it's not really a bug, the best way is to use the "Wishlist" function here on the Board. Wes
  7. @milezee...sounds like an opportunity for an Enhancement request...I think I'll file one ūüôā
  8. What I would like to see is the import of Rhino's layer structure...similar to how we import a .dwg
  9. @nakedeye.....I'm not in entertainment but I know a bit about the Data Viz tool...maybe you need to set your criteria to "Hanging Position" so that the data viz set can "see" it??? Wes
  10. Not really a preference but...Apple V = Paste In Place - because that's the way I am... I leave "Paste" as a drop-down so that I know that I'm intentionally NOT pasting in place In the "old days", did the number of Undos have a memory usage component? Just as an aside...I do alot of demonstrations, training, etc. where I need to represent "what ships" so my workspace is "stock" - no smoke and mirrors...I also run the "shipping build"... Wes
  11. @Inspectorjack, are you really on V2012? If so, there have been a few changes in the Window/Door PIOs (plug-in objects)...maybe post a window in a file... Wes
  12. @Inspectorjack...try mine...get into the Class dialog and under Window-Shutter, get into the Texture chooser and choose another one and see what happens Shutter Test.vwx
  13. @RussU...I believe we are certified for IFC 2x3...You can find out more from buildingsmart.org Wes
  14. In addition to dimensioning, I think you'll find with the introduction of the Data Tag tool that TAGS, wall tags, room names, door tags, window tags, etc, etc. should be placed in the Annotation space of the viewport. BTW, I DO draw with "control dimensions" on design layers with the intent of "publish dimensions" in Annotation space.
  15. Hi Bruce, There isn't really a menu...but there is a history list...double-clicking on the objects "steps" you back through its history...you can then modify the surface/edge for that operation. Tamsin beat me to it...Enjoy! Wes
  16. @Kai1...Saved Views are your friend! They can toggle classes and layers as well as both the layer and class controls (like Show Snap or Active Only), they can return you to the exact view with the appropriate render style, they can jump you from design layers to sheet layers etc. etc....very powerful feature not to be overlooked! I've attached a screen shot of some saved views that help me quickly navigate my file(s) Wes
  17. @MaltbyDesign, a quick way might be to use the Extract Surface command to get a surface from the underside of the roof, then Extrude that. Now you have two solids whereupon you can use Subtract Solids keeping the original shelled object. I believe the "Fit Walls..." command ONLY works when clipping walls, however you CAN use objects like extrudes to do the clipping
  18. @Josh-gsy...if you can post the file (or a portion that has the issue(s)), I'm sure we can get you squared away....just by looking at the lower image, it looks as if you have a "leak" where the roof object doesn't quite cover the walls that are resulting in those spikes. Wes
  19. @Keito64..some folks have found using the "old stair" which you'd need to get from the Workspace Editor, "explodes" better into what some consider more usable extruded elements.
  20. @mgebel, the username that Project Sharing uses is the computer name. I would use all the same version and run it all over one sharing service - I believe we recommend DropBox. Here are some other recommendations: Turn off project file backup when using dropbox Project file must be in a folder and the folder must be shared not the project file. Set the sharing permission at the folder level Wes
  21. @drelARCH...not a great option but just overdraw the skylight in plan-view on your sheet layers to get the graphics you want. At the moment, you can't really "get to" skylights as they are embedded in the roof as you've probably found...sorry Wes
  22. @drelARCH, I have filed a bug on this, thank you Wes
  23. @Kane you can also use DropBox for Project Sharing if you have remote offices, etc... Wes
