  1. I do not think VectorDepot exists anymore.
  2. Anyone have a good suggestion on how to make tapered or pitched open web roof trusses easily? It doesn't look like the Framing Member PIO can do it. Thanks!
  3. Sorry - I didn't realize I still have a signature. I can't figure out where that is located to change it. I am running VW2022 SP3 on a 14-inch MacBook Pro M1 Max.
  4. I think I may have done a clean install of VW to resolve the problem. It was obvious that others weren't having this issue, so there was a specific problem with mine. I believe I first made a new user and did a clean install to test it. It's definitely some kind of corruption in your set up because this type of memory leak is not typical for most users. I haven't had the problem come up since then and my projects have only gotten bigger with more complex renderings since then.
  5. I have the same problem. Mine won't go past 1%. I'm on a MacBook Pro M1 Max.
  6. I went back and found that my memory leak problems (exactly like yours) started in VW2017 SP4 and it seemed to continue through VW 2019. I actually don't know how it resolved itself because I didn't post a solution in that thread. But it was suggested to reset VW preferences.
  7. @Archistyles I’ve been on VW2022 and macOS Monterey since I got my MacBook Pro M1 Max as soon as it was released, and I personally don’t have any issues. But every set up is different…
  8. @line-weight I used to have to do that with VW2020 and maybe VW2021 but I don’t exactly recall when that problem went away for me. I just looked at the Activity Monitor while rendering in VW2022 on my MacBook Pro M1 Max, and it looks like after each rendering is done, it releases the memory so I don’t run out. I’m sorry I don’t have any advice for you, but I’m glad that problem went away for me.
  9. The Apple Studio Display is 5K in a 27" package. Does that mean the VW UI elements would get smaller? Or are those dynamically resized depending on the monitor?
  10. I am unable to actually test these anymore. I download many, but not all, of the Content Library. And I was able to download an individual resource today without a problem (two actually!). So it is resolved and I'm not sure what the problem was. Thank you for your help @Jeremy Best!
  11. Just got off the phone with Service Select Priority Support. She said I needed to go to Help > Download Content and then install the Library that I want to use. It seems idiotic that I have to download the entire library to use it. I used to be able to just download a single symbol from the Resource Manager. It such an incredible waste of resources on my laptop.
  12. I missed that last one. I was really hoping that would work. My permission was already set to Read & Write and I highlighted it and choose Apply to Enclosed Items. But still stuck at the download pop up. Sometimes I get an error message but it is rare. Usually I need to force quit.
  13. Thank you @Jeremy Best for the advice. 1. MacOS Firewall is off. 2. I don't have anti virus software. 3. I have a T-Mobile 5G Home Internet router. I've had it for almost 9 months so I don't think that is the problem unless T-Mobile made a change to it remotely. The app for managing it does not contain any information pertaining to firewall configurations. 4. I work from home so there is no corporate network firewall or configurations. I still can not download any online resources. At a loss for what to do...
  14. Also tried to download a Kohler faucet and it would give me the unending spinning rainbow ball.
  15. When I try to download symbols from Advance Tabco, the download progress bar appears, but doesn't move. I eventually (if I'm lucky) get an error message "Vectorworks was unable to download the online resources from (packages.vectorworks.net/2022/NNA/eng/resourcemanager/release/Objects - Building Equip_Appliances/Advance Tabco Faucets and Acc.vwx). Please check your internet connection." Without the error message, I can't cancel and the spinning rainbow ball doesn't stop. My internet connection is fine. Any idea what could be causing this issue? Can anyone else replicate this issue? I'm using VW2022 on a M1 Max MacBook Pro.

  17. What you are reading here may be skewed towards people having problems, as people who are not having issues, don't go to the forums. I have a new 14" MacBook M1 Max and I use it with one external display simultaneously with the notebook display. I am fortunate and not seeing the issues other people are. It's going to really depend on your setup and comfort level with upgrading. Those who play it the safest wait a year before upgrading (when macOS 13 comes out, you upgrade to macOS 12).
  18. I'm using VW2022 on a 14" MacBook Pro M1 Max with an external monitor and haven't had any issued since I transitioned 10 days ago. Others may have different experiences. The largest project I am working on is a 3-story community center (17,000sf) with an almost 700 mb file size.
  19. I had a Mac Pro (Late-2013) 6 core with 64 gb ram. Yesterday, I got a MacBook Pro (14-inch, 2021) M1 Max with 32 GPU and 64 gb ram and wasted no time in setting it up. I ran the same rendering on the Mac Pro and the MacBook Pro. It rendered 2.7x faster. Amazing to see such speed from a notebook computer. Now you don't have to choose between power and mobility. One computer can do it all!
  20. @Dave Donley Here you go. Wellington.vwx
  21. Does no one else have this issue?
  22. I have a class for existing walls where the fill is set to white and a separate class for new walls where the fill is set to grey. In both Shading and RW, the new walls are rendering darker than existing walls. All walls are set to render By Object and Overall set to the texture Paint-White (with all faces set to From Overall). Wall type is the same for both walls. Is this a bug or is there something else I should be looking at?
  23. There will definitely be a high end Mac mini to replace the high end Intel Mac mini which is still for sale. But I would expect a high end iMac to appear first. You may be waiting until next summer to see it... And if that is the case, it might just be an M2 and not an M1 Pro or Max.
  24. @jwp You can check out this comparison for GPU performance. https://appleinsider.com/articles/21/10/19/m1-pro-and-m1-max-gpu-performance-versus-nvidia-and-amd I included the table for quick reference.
