  1. Hi All,


    Here's what I've got regarding the wall framer.  I can get it to frame the studs in the stud "gallery" as you've described using the "Core" function in the wall style (this should ALWAYS be used or slabs won't respond correctly).  However, IF the trim function is used, the framer will frame to the OUTER extent of the trim (which is NOT what you want). Just turning the class off doesn't seem to do anything, you must turn the trim off in the OIP to get the framing tight around the window frame as it should be...

    Keep in mind the Wall Framer is quite an old tool

  2. @ CraigC,


    OK, go for it!  Your choices in Vectorworks are Unstyled walls, Layer bound walls or Level bound walls...

    There's also a Getting Started webinar offered monthly that may serrve to clarify some of this...

  3. @ Phileas,


    Cool!  yeah, the whole thing (pun intended) is a bit nervous...I don't really like to show it but sometimes it can work, particularly for things like reveals when they are important to a design. The cool thing is the whole wall hole thing can be made to go around a corner which is something other approaches can't do.


    Good luck!

  4. @ line weight,


    That's going to be a tough one....the lower wall will have to decide whether to join to the vertical or horizontal wall...dunno if it's possible to get the correct representation...it might be that you have to go with two walls for the lower one that are split down the middle???



  5. @ Tim,


    I used a slab as the element to tag and then used Slab > Height.  I could only get millimeters (the "native" unit in Vectorworks) perhaps there's a way to convert to feet/inches or another metric unit?  Maybe via a script?


    I'll submit an Enhancement Request and see where it goes...would be cool...(and useful)

  6. Hi Victor,

    I assume you first drew this in Top/Plan view...now you need to change the view and rotate the object...

    If it's 2D or an extrude from 2D, you can simply go to a side view and use the Rotate command to "stand it up"


    Slabs and floors CANNOT be rotated.


    However, you CAN slope a slab using the Slab Drainage tool
