  1. The curtain wall doesn´t render as expected in Open GL. Glazing panels and Caps do not use the Class Textures that I assign to them. Hidden line rendering and "Polygon-Final Shaded" also fail. The curtain wall renders correctly in all other modes. Am I missing some settings or is this something that nees to be fixed in the next update? Exporting to Lumion also fails to include the glass texture. I run VW 2019 SP 3 for Windows. test curtainwall.vwx
  2. Hello everyone, So I've drawn a curtain wall and now I'm trying to insert a door into it. After reading some other questions about this topic in the forums and watching some Tutorials I haven't made much progress. I've gotten to the point, where I edited the curtain wall with the "curtain wall edit" tool selected a panel and inserted a door. The problem I'm having now is that I seem to not be able to edit this door to my preferences. I would like to have a leaf made out of glass and the doorframe to be white for now. I would appreciate it if someone could give me some tips. ( Vectorworks Pro 2017/ Studentversion) Many Thanks! Dany
  3. Having a problem with Curtain Wall objects exporting to IFC currently. Problem arose after exporting a curtain wall to IFC, then opening to view in Solibri. The glazed panels did not display with a transparency. After a maddening process of trial and error, I still can't seem to resolve this. It seems that no matter what curtain wall style options or class settings are used, either the glazed portions of curtain walling are not exported, or are exported with a solid fill. Somebody please tell me I'm missing something obvious! On another note, the curtain walling tool could really do with an overhaul. This should be a simple process.
  4. Greetings all, Does anyone know how to get glazing areas from a curtain wall object? And a harder question, how would we query only the glazing (minus the spandrel area)? Possible/Not Possible?
  5. Hello All Is there a way to adjust my frames in a curtain wall to a fraction of an inch? So far when i try to adjust a frame to 2.75" it will round up to 3" and won't allow me to go below 2". Does anyone have any insights on this? Thank you
  6. Hi All I am using the curtain wall tool and trying to edit the parameters to reflect a vertical butt joint glass with top and bottom frames. When I draw the wall it shows the bottom frame segmented but I want this to show continuous. Is there an edit I'm missing ? Thank you!
  7. So I'm designing a curtain wall that spans 2 floors and each have windows in them on 2 separate floors. Is it ok to design the symbol as one plug in object as if it were a window spanning two floors or am I building this wrong altogether. It seemed easier to just design it as one piece rather than design 2 separate systems that are slightly different one from the other. Will I run into problems down the line when making my window schedule? When I used to draw it in 2D, the whole curtain wall system would be under a single "window type" that would be considered as one curtain wall with casements where indicated. Maybe I'm overthinking this but I would love to get some feedback as to how some of you would handle designing a simple two story "storefront" system". Thanks
  8. I wish for the Curtain Wall Tool : 1. an option to always fix the horizontal CW Grid to VW Origin, independent from any Wall start or end point. (As I start my building grid from there and usually want my facade grid according to that only) 2. an option to edit horizontal CW grid only when in Top Plan View, without the risk to accidentally edit the vertical CW grid accidentally as it is now. Which even can't be seen or controlled in any way, in any kind of Top Views. Same for moving single Frames in Top Plan View. 3. an option to a) show a CW Grid by a line graphic and b) a lock to only pick those grid lines and not any sides or corners from frames, which are far from Grid and do not help to align that Grid to something at all . 4. an option to also allow to snap to blue VW Grid Lines as a target when in CW Grid Edit Mode and to Grids of any other CWs. 5. an option to Reset/Clear any former Frame or Panel Edits from a CW, as these prevent any useful later synchronization of the Wall Style's Grid settings anyway. Without the need to replace CW Wall Style by a standard Wall Stile and back again. 6. an option to insert Windows and Doors into CWs without deactivating their Jambs, as these Jambs will be there and needed in reality too. 7. an option to enter absolute values to vertical CW "Grid" (Or better use Story levels) like : 3rd Frame at 2,82 m 2nd Frame at 2,10 m 1st Frame at 0,90 m
  9. I have recently started using Vectorworks BIM capabilities. I am working on this project , it has this sloped window which turns into skylight. I am struggling to model this part as I am not sure which way to go. I would really appreciate If someone can lead me out of this darkness. Please see attached picture of the actual window. Thank you
  10. Hi, I need to edit a curtain wall that is already in my model. I need to select certain panels to add a spandrel texture. I can not see the the "Edit Curtain Wall" button in the Tool Set. When I select the curtain wall and right-click, I have the option to "Edit Using Curtain Wall Tool" but if I select that option, nothing happens. I don't get any of the editing mode options to select certain panels, frames or any other option. How can I get my Edit Curtain Wall to work? Thanks.
  11. Hi, I'm having a problem accurately positioning vertical frames in a curtain wall. Rather the frames are simply disappearing because of their position or caused by something else. The issue I'm having is when I move my vertical frame next to the starting frame the vertical one disappears. How can I avoid this from happening?
