  1. Hi Is it possible for anyone to convert the exercise files found in "Getting Started with Vectorworks Architect 2009" to files compatible for Vectorworks ver:12.5 please?
  2. Hi have another problem Every time I try to fillet the edge of my model (highlighted red) Im presented with the pictured Error Box of Vectorworks freezes. I created the object Im trying to fillet by creating the shape in 2D Polygon Tool and then extruding it. Any help with this would be great
  3. My thread has been hijacked lol. Im still unsure if archoncad's books are worth the price especially if Im working with architect. I have money here Im just wondering if I can find answers to questions for free? So ive worked out it will cost me ?42 with manual itself; how much will shipping be? archoncad you have a potential buyer here
  4. Thank you Damon Design Could you also help with this one: How do you creat a fill for handrail 1. like handrail 2.? EDIT: Sorry its not a Handrail its a Guardrail lol
  5. I still cant get the hang of it. The only place I have been able to change the materials of mullions is under the Render Tab. But the glazing always seems to stay the same.
  6. Thank you so much for all of your help much appreciated. One last question I was just wondering whether if the answers to my questions can be found in any of the http://archoncad.com/hardcopy-manuals.html ?
  7. Thank you Mike but what does OIP stand for? Also is it possible to create a curved double line to represent a curved wall in a 2d Plan that can be filled with a colour with out using the wall tool which will automatically create a 3d object. Thanks for you help again & best regards, Portmanteau
  8. Im just wondering when using the "Window Wall tool(Straight)". Are the mullions always made of glass as they appear to be in my picture: or can they be edited with another material?
  9. Hi CipesDesign Im getting there, Ive almost done it.
  10. Also why cant this be edited (highlighted RED) its making things really diffulcult.
  11. Thanks CipesDesign I would really appreciate it if you could - that would be brilliant!!!
  12. Hi I'm trying to build a set of stairs using the defaults from the stairs symbol folder, but I'm having trouble configuring it to match my drawing below.
  13. I dont mean to sound rude but why is it still on the website? I am looking for tutorial manuals for Vectorworks 12/12.5 which can be bought here in the UK and have metric measurments - any help with this? Ive found on the whole the support and training that has been available in the form of manuals very poor compared to the abundance of tutorials for AutoCAD products
  14. Hi Ive been trying to get hold of this manual Step by Step with Vectorworks Architectfrom here in the UK but there doesnt seem to be any resellers here. Would you know how to get hold of it and do any of the Vectorworks manuals come in Metric measurements? Kind Regards, Portmanteau
  15. Hi Monkey, gmm18 Thanks for the advice but I started the project again and everything seems to be working fine now. I do have one more question regarding circles. I have uploaded two screen dumps regarding my question. Picture 1 shows the radius of the circle Ive created (measurement sh0wn in BLUE) & the measurement of the line that the radius was created from (red). PICTURE 1: However when I zoom right into the end of the line and the edge of the circle they don't meet - picture 2 PICTURE 2 Sorry about the quality of the screen dumps thats MS paint for you lol.
  16. Hi & thanks for the fast reply. In tools >organization > classes there is tick next to none with the dimension class above it. When I put a tick next to the Dimension class I can see the measurements but not the drawing. This hasn't been a problem before with my other drawings. Ive just high lighted all the parts of my drawing and set the class to Dimension in the object info palette. I then went back in to tools >organization > classes and put a tick next to dimension under the class name. I can now see both drawings and measurements. In my other drawing I had class set to none and I was still able to take and see the measurements using the Constrained-line dimensioning tool. I'm confused :confused:
  17. Hi I'm working on a particular file and every time I try to use the constrained-line dimensioning tool it doesn't give me a measurements or and data. I used this tool on another file and it works fine just not with this one????? Any help please? Kind Regards, Portmanteau
  18. Hi Im using vertorworks ver:12 - how comes I can't set my snap grid to 0.0? Kind Regards, Portmanteau
  19. Thank You Mike, much appreciated. Kind Regards, Portmanteau
