    Edit STL Files

    Hello everyone, I apologize if this has already been asked. I have downloaded an STL file from Thingverse and I want to be able to edit the file and manipulate it. Is there a procedure to do this in VW? Do I need to convert the file to something first?

    Title Blocks - VW 2020

    Ok, I thought I did do a refresh, but will check. I am not sure about the TBB styles, I will have to look up to see if they are indeed that symbol type or even how to specify them as that. When I get home from work this evening I will post the sample file.
  3. I apologize if this has been addressed before. However, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to have my title blocks show up as an option when setting up my files. I have tried saving the title block files in the Default Libraries folder/Title Blocks folder and I have also tried putting them in the Object Styles/Title Blocks folder and they just don't show up. I have even tried placing on of the title blocks into one of the supplied Simple Title Blocks file and it doesn't show up either. I literally been having to import and edit the title blocks each time to get mine imported. Can someone please help me and shed some light on what I am doing wrong. Thank you in advance for any help/advice.

    OpenGL Viewport has Black Background

    Never mind, I figured it out. When you click on the viewport and then click Advanced Options, there is an option for Non fill uses Alpha Transparency. Unchecking that option gets rid of the black background in the viewport.
  5. Hello everyone. I recently upgraded to VW 2019 and I am having a problem with any viewports that I create and use a OpenGL rendering mode, the background is black. I want it to be white. I can set the viewports to any other rendering method and the backgrounds are white. Where can I change this?

    Callout Tool Problem

    Well I went back into the file last night and it started working fine again. Not sure what is going on. However, I will try to reproduce the glitch and if I do I will send the file. This is very strange.

    Callout Tool Problem

    Hello Everyone, So I am all of a sudden having a problem with the callout tool. If you look at the screenshot that is attached you will see one callout that reads “Foam Insulation” and then above that one that reads “2X (PER Plan) @ 16” O.C.” The problem I am having is if I go in and alter the top one the leader and arrow disappear and it ends up looking like the bottom one. What is causing this and how do I fix it? It does this on all new documents as well now. I don’t know what has changed.

    Window Trim Style

    My bad. I just upgraded to 2018 and had no idea I could control that. Have never had to. Thank you!!

    Best PC to run Vectorworks 18 on

    I ended up just custom building my own system, and now have no complaints. It takes a bit of planning but I feel you will get exactly what you are looking for.

    Window Trim Style

    Is there a way to control the exterior window trim? What I am trying to achieve is where I have no exterior trim except for at the top, see attachment. However, I would want to change the trim profile. I know I can achieve this look by physically modeling it, but wasn't sure if there was another way to achieve this.

    Wall Component Problem

    I agree, I had to go back and redo every exterior corner connection which was a lot of wasted time I could have been doing other things with the design.

    Wall Component Problem

    Using the Remove Wall Breaks tool and then rejoining worked. Thank you, RGyori. However, why doesn't this just automatically work?
