  1. I was wondering is it possible to convert rendered simplified horizontal section viewport view into 2d component of a symbol? I want to create 2d/3d symbol form downloaded 3d model. When downloading 3d models from ex. 3d warehouse, It's a quite dense mesh, but if I make a horizontal section cut to the viewport I receive clear 2d simplified sketch. Is there any way to transform this viewport image into 2d polylines for future use as 2d symbol component? I have tried to fill the spaces with the polygon fill bucket but it's not working...
  2. Hi I am having some challenges with these...on frequent occasions I have set one up and the viewport does not cover the full area of what I intended. To resolve the issue I would expect to find a horizontal section marker line that i could adjust to ensure the section covered is what I am looking, however it seems these are not visible unless they created in another viewport. Is this case? and if it is the case why doesn't the Viewport OIP allow you to manage instances of it, as it does standard Section VPs? Now I have a file in which the viewport "lost" the area of view after I moved its location on the sheet ( and this was the second attempt to create the viewport over the relevant area.... how could that just happen? Anyone point out what i am missing here? TIA viewport position on the sheet view port clip object....note area of view/interest not showing in spite of correct layer/class set ups. Thanks Bob S VW Architect 2019 on a Win10 pc
  3. All surface hatches of slab objects are gone in horizontal sections viewport (only orthogonal projection) in latest update. Across all files...very very bad. Anybody experiencing this issue? Any known fix? Thanks.
  4. Hello, I am experiencing since version 2020 (If I remember correctly) that from time to time section viewport (horizontal section) change randomly to regular viewport creating viewport with orthogonal view: custom view resulting in some kind of mix of previous floor plan and added elevation(upside down) after viewport update...see attachment screenshot. Anybody seeing this issue too?
  5. I am aiming to present vertical/horizontal sections through building in a simple and clean way. Ideally I want to have merged all cross sections into solid fills. (using Advanced Properties) As you can see now it is one big mess! Only the regular Section viewport with orthogonal and oblique view (never mind dormer details - not fully finished yet) is working fine. Perspective view loses most of fills (walls/slab/roof...) while in horizontal section VP windows/doors openings are not always recognised and cut out...Section fill through the stair is all over the place! Is there some deadline from vectorworks that this inconsistency will be fixed and cleaned out and that I as a user can count on with this software functionality? While I see lot of progress and effort in 3D area of software ( I definitely acknowledge that) but there is still LOT LOT of places that needs to be FIXED. And if something is not fully working it would be fair to give us some notice and warning... Intentionally I wanted to use 3d features on very simple house and go from there to much larger ones... I HOPE that this software one day will work greatly without hitting new small/big issues every single day and without hours of investigating what is going on wrong. HOPE this will be very very soon. Come on Vectorworks, I dont have my working time for writing post and searching forums, I need HIGH quality tool that is capable of simplifying my work and at the same time save me my dear time.
  6. Hi, I'd like to know if it's possible to show instances of sections in horizontal section viewports. I've tried but the VW only shows me viewport which are top/plan and not horizontal section viewports. Thanks in advance.
