  1. Hi Vincent, Good luck with your decision. It appears to me that the most of the bashing comments in this thread comes from users experienced mostly if not ONLY with one of the platforms. I have been with MS since the MS-DOS / 80286 days and also spent enough time with OS/2 and Linux. I never truly tried Apple until the beta release of Boot Camp. At that time I needed to replace my Dell laptop and the MacBook Pro / Boot Camp combination seemed a perfect solution to my dependency on the MS platform at the time. My only regret is that I did not do it sooner. It took only few months and I was booting into OS X most of the time. I don't know if I would appreciate OS X as much without my MS experience. In my MS days I build many PC for friends and many of them never used computers before. Now I know that they would have been much better off if I set them up with Macs. As far as converting from Windows to OS X, my biggest problem for me was trying to do things the Windows' way. I think that starting with OS X would have been easier if I did not use Windows for all those years before. Statistically I am sure it is not true, but I feel that most of my time in Windows environment is spent on troubleshooting and maintenance. I know for sure that besides doing backups, most of my time in OS X is spent on what I need/want to do. Best of luck.
  2. Any new developments in this area? What daylighting tools are available in VW 2009 ?
  3. Hi Kate, Thank you very much for your reply. I purchased Chief Architect instead. Kind Regards, Radek
  4. Thank you very much for your reply Miguel.
  5. I am very impressed with some of the renderings displayed in the The NNA VW Gallery. However, the gallery does not provide any info about the objects used in the samples. I would like to know more about the 3d Object library shipped with VW Architect. The evaluation pack does not include the full 3D libraries or objects and I am not able to find much information about the libraries on the NNA website. Where can I see examples of some 3d work that was created in VW Architect without the help of a 3rd party software or 3d objects purchased elsewhere? I would appreciate your comments. Kind regards, Radek

  8. All 3 objects in the screen-shot have the same texture selected. However for some reason I can't get them to show up for the Base Cabinet or the Table and Chairs objects. The Desk object seems to be fine. What am I doing wrong? I appreciate any comments. Cheers, Radek
  9. Thank you for your reply David. I am not sure I understand your suggestion. I thought Jonathan is independent from NNA. Why would he be interested in helping me with the evaluation of NNA's product? Is this not NNA's job to make a sale? I am sure Jonathan is busy enough with his paying customers. Not million miles, only 790k Cheers, Radek
  10. Are there any sink-base cabinets included with VW Architect? I am using the demo and can't find any. I would appreciate any comments on this subject. Kind regards, Radek
  11. I just installed the Evaluation Edition of VW 2008. My first impression is that VW is very powerful. I am just having hard time figuring out how to do things. What are the limitations of the demo versus the licensed product? I am trying to do a simple kitchen layout and have hard time to even figure out what objects are available in VW Architect. How do I get to the library? There are few things under the Furn/Fixtures tools set, but it seem pretty limited at the first glance. Is this a limitation of the demo? This is what I get when I choose a Base Cabinet, Style="Sink Front". Where is the sink? How can I make it look any better? How can I make the textures display in the 3d view? I am not interested in InteriorCAD as I don't need to design cabinets I just want to include kitchen layouts in my projects that look presentable. Any suggestions where to find some introductory how-to's or tutorials so I can evaluate the software? Cheers
