  1. You can also "take a section of a section" and thus, control the height of the "cutting plane. First create a VIEWPORT (not a Section Viewport) and place it on a Sheet Layer. Select FRONT view. Now cut a SECTION VIEWPORT looking DOWN at any height and Voila!
  2. Hi taoist, If you're interested in interiorCAD, get in touch with Tom Pearce. Tom is an old friend to VW as well as a talented woodworker. Here's Tom's email - Tom@Coronal.net Wes
  3. Hi, The plug-in door and window objects have flat square-edged trim with both thickness and width parameters. Other profiles can be created using Extrude Along Path. This holds true for any casing as well as crown and base.
  4. Can you attach a small file with one of the offending doors included? Also, it is most helpful if you include your computer specs and VW version in you signature.
  5. Dimensions are typically "auto-classed" into the "Dimension" class - make sure this is ON in the Class Over rides of the VIEWPORT.
  6. Have you inadvertently turned OFF "Show Lineweights" so that you are in essence fooling yourself with what you see on the screen vs. what prints? Maybe update the printer driver? Have you changed/upgraded any other hardware?
  7. I believe the "Send to..." option requires Renderworks...
  8. Nope, there's not...at least not that I know of...use Peter's methods...they work.
  9. Is the "SUM" feature what you're looking for? To use, drop the sum icon onto the DATABASE HEADER row...
  10. Hi Pat, Assuming you're using 2011, check out this screen shot...if you run a report and ask for "Spaces", one of the fields is "Ceiling Height" - the formula for that particular field is as shown in the screen shot. Hope this helps Wes
  11. Don't forget, not only must the poly be "closed", it must also have a FILL otherwise it will appear sort of in wireframe...
  12. The simplest way to add the area (or other data), EDIT the Symbol and just duplicate the number surrounded by the pound signs, then renumber it a discreet number. In the SETTINGS of the OIP you?ll find your new number where you can assign it a value in the ?Format Field? pull-down. I?ve included a file for testing?
  13. I believe I would NOT use the "auto-dormer" feature as its flexibility is a bit limited...it wants things to be symmetrical among other things...build your dormer from walls, windows and roof faces, then you'll be able to show it as required on the various plan views.
  14. Make sure the two Advanced properties panels are set-up as indicated...
  15. You are correct, 2D and 3D are much more inter-related in 2011. For instance, notice that in 2011 there is only one Selection Tool.
  16. Here's your roof plan back, try the roof face that I clipped then end off. Apparently, if you zoom way in, on your outboard corners, there's a bit of a chamfered edge...the tool doesn't like that...
  17. Hey Christiaan, The first Canadian one doesn't do much for me - doesn't seem to be much (if any) of an improvement - great big thermal bridge! The second one IS interesting... It DOES appear to provide a positive thermal break...I'm guessing that angle is stainless steel or something that won't rust ??
  18. In the states you might see rigid insulation against the outer wythe of brick below grade....then "in theory" the temperature that the footing (and the wall bearing on that footing) "sees" (assuming it's far enough below grade) is about 10 C. BTW, nice detail Christiaan
  19. Here are three easy steps to create a curved roof... First draw on arc in FRONT VIEW. Switch to Left Isometric so you can see and then EXTRUDE the arc the depth you need Now SHELL the surface to whatever thickness you need
  20. Is this what you mean? "Use Part Line Styles"
  21. Using Peter's methodology, these are simple extrudes...
  22. If you use openGL, make sure that "Use Planar Attributes" in the openGL rendering settings is checked...the default is OFF
