    rendering while printing

    A little glitch but quite frustrating: I have set 3-4 viewports to render. They will take about 5 mins each. I have another file open and set about printing. I click the 'save to pdf' option and save the file. After clicking 'save' the Print dialogue box freezes on the screen locking out VW. Nothing in VW will work until the renders are finished. 20mins later...............put the kettle on. As I said its rare that i would be doing this but hopefully something to look into at HQ. best Paul

    page setup issue

    I realised this was happening in all my applications so it was an Apple issue not VW. I Chatted to someone at Apple and we eventually found it was due to the epson printer drivers. There is a new Epson software update available, released 20th Nov 2017. (yesterday!!!) This didn't get downloaded automatically from apple with the High Sierra update. I would recommend anyone with Epson printers download the update. Thanks for you help in any case paul

    page setup issue

    Hi all I am having an issue with the page set up since upgrading to the latest Mac OS , High Sierra. I have a sheet set up as A3 in landscape. I click print and press okay. VW then automatically jumps back to a portrait orientation and print also comes out as portrait. Same issue if I create a new blank file. Using VW18 SP1. Any ideas. Paul Ps. Does the same in VW17 SP4 pps. even does it when printing to PDF or preview pdf. This is a major problem!! I cannot issue any drawings
  5. Hi I am busy updating our title block in VW18. Our title block has a revision number next to the drawing number. Rather than update this manually each time I would like it to be update along the actual revision data. Problem is the number keeps mounting upwards. We could limit the visible revision data to 1 but then we cannot show a record of the revisions. Is there a way to have a separate revision number update automatically but not move location/ duplicate itself upwards? Make sense? Many thanks Paul
  6. Hi All I am in the initial stages of putting the Structural engineers details into my BIM model. I am trying to add a BSI universal column using the Framing member tool but it doesn't appear as an option. If I create it using the 'Column' tool the BSI UC option appears as a structural shape. Is this an error? should it appear in the framing member tool too? Further, are there benefits in using the 'framing members' tool over the 'column' tool for columns. thanks in advance Paul
  7. I had the same problem and ended up having to build the existing in one file first then duplicate the file and edit it for proposed. Would be good to fix this in the future. paul

    Framing members and BIM and IFC

    Thanks Zoomer. I can't see why this shouldn't export. It will be a pretty useless tool if we can't exchange information with other consultants. Paul

    crashing VW17 SP4

    Since updating to SP4, VW is crashing at least twice a day. SP3 had no issues what so ever. Anyone else having issues? Paul
  10. Hi all Problems have arisen with the framing member. I have create an equal angle and placed it in the model. When exported to IFC and opened in Solibri we find that the framing member has revered side! Please see photos. Other than reversing the member in VW and then exporting does anyone one know why this might be happening? Many thanks Paul Using the latest service packs on VW17 and solibri viewer v9.5

    Black line appearing in final render in viewport

    I think you can set the site modifier pad class to invisible and still have the effect of the site modifier visible. paul

    Rendered perspective plan?

    I am trying to create a rendered cut section viewport but in 'plan' orientation. Is this possible? My model is in one layer, its a small pavilion and I want to try placing the section cut at different heights, in order to pick up different features. Any tips would be gratefully received. Paul
