  1. @techdef, first I'd work on getting those joins to work better. Here's a bit on wall joining. Does this simulate it close enough? If you can't get it to go, post the file and we'll see if someone can help get it done. Wes Wall Joins.docx My Wall Joins v2019.vwx
  2. @John Vancouver in building demonstration files, etc here at the mother ship, a trick we've used when walls misbehave is to just go into the wall style and change something, then change it right back thus causing a "reset" or "bump" which can solve some odd issues... Wes
  3. @John Vancouveradditionally, I updated and rendered one of your elevation viewports...it looks fine...cool little building BTW! Wes
  4. @John Vancouver, when I opened your file and checked the classes, the component classes for the walls were OFF. Also no texture was assigned to the exterior cladding component of the wall. Once squared away, it seems OK? Wes
  5. @Christian Fekete, for some reason, your door doesn't seem to respond to "Leaf Type"...if you blow it away and set another, do you get the same? Wes
  6. @Christian Fekete can you post a file? Wes
  7. @John Vancouvercan you post a sample file so we can see what's up...the first thing of course is make sure ALL classes are on Wes
  8. @Andy Broomell It's the ONLY way I know or the "real" sill takes on the poche/hatch/fill of the jamb...it's the way the "factory" builds its windows. Sorry, it's a limitation of the current window. You could style up a couple of windows that work with "all the popular wall thickness" ūüôā Wes
  9. @Andy Broomell, here's the file...and your file too Window Jamb.vwx WindowQuestion_v2020 wg2.vwx
  10. @Andy Broomell...let me work on that...this gets pretty close Wes
  11. @Andy Broomellmaybe this... Wes WindowQuestion_v2020 wg.vwx
  12. @jcrock, I created a class called [Fat Line Class] and pointed the wall style (Bearing Wall 200mm) at it so it will use that attribute. Is this what you wanted? In this "simple" wall style that doesn't have components, you need to use the "Make All Attributes by Class" button as you've described but in the "Edit Wall Style" pane under the Insertion Options tab, you have to assign it TO A CLASS. For more complex wall styles that have multiple components, the Class in the Edit Wall Style pane (Insertion Options tab) becomes the CONTAINER CLASS and the attributes for the container class are assigned in the Wall Attributes pane (use the "Make All Attributes by Class" button.) You can then assign different attributes to your various components in the Component Edit pane (I've attached a screen shot that shows a wall style with multiple components) I've included your file with the adjustment Wes Villa No.2 wg.vwx
  13. @Boh...just FYI, when I first opened the site file, there was something "out in left field". I created a new file and referenced the Floor Plan file into it and it seemed to work just fine. I tried cropping out half the building and it still seemed to work fine..I DID NOT find the offending element "out in left field" Keep in mind, I'm on 2020. Wes
  14. @Boh, I'm trying to make this happen and can't get it to, I'm on 2020. I'll keep testing. Can you create a couple of simple files and post them? Wes
  15. @Frances, if I recall correctly, the best course of action is to go back to the Source file and move the objects there and then go to the target and update the reference. Wes
  16. @taoistlook at "No Stories, No Problem" to see if that works for you. Wes
  17. @e_calabrese. maybe post the file or a portion of the file? I tried wit ha simple square room and added a curved wall to one side and couldn't get it to fail? Wes
  18. @Frances, yep I think you're right...I've not seen that warning...perhaps in the designer series you don't get the warning. Your viewports should be unaffected. Try the reference sequence and see what you get... you can just set up a couple of "dummy" files for practice. The source file would need to have a a couple of layers such that the target file could "see" them. Let me know if you have issues and we'll find a solution that works for you. Wes
  19. @Frances, the Reference tab in the Organization Palette lets you select what kind of reference when you choose the "Settings" button. It's been awhile since I've seen Fundamentals so I'm not sure what the limitations are. In the image it's set up for Layer Import...you won't have the "Design layer viewport" option. Then select the "New" button in the lower left and navigate to the source file that you want to reference layers from. You'll then get a screen (see below) where you can select the layers in the source file. They will appear italicized in the target file Wes
  20. @vassen, after reading the other thread that's referred to here, you'll probably come to the conclusion that the most efficient way to create these objects and then be able to create drawings is to model what you can in order to get the form correct and then finish it up in 2D to get the graphics correct.

  21. Here's a bit on wall joining... Wall Joins.docx
  22. Hi All, Several folks occasionally get confused as to what controls what in our plug-in objects (PIOs) - BTW, I hate that name, PIO...we should just call them parametric objects and be done...anyway, here's a window as an example with alot of stuff classed. Turn 'em on, turn 'em off, see what they do. BTW, this model uses the "old skool" method for tagging. Now days I'd use the Data Tag tool to accomplish the same thing. Wes Window Explorer v2020.vwx
  23. @Bruce Kieffer Oops forgot to include a file...here's a window with, I believe, all the classes that you can get to (there are some hidden bits) broken out. It uses the "old skool" method of tagging...now days I'd use the Data Tag tool Wes Window Explorer v2020.vwx
