  1. I'm working on an irrigation plan and decided to make a new symbol to use for an irrigation Outlet because I wanted the graphic to have a different color. It seemed to work at first, but when I rotate the direction of the spray, the symbol doesn't rotate with it like it does with my other irrigation outlet objects. All I did was duplicate one of the existing outlet symbols I had in the Resource Manager, changed the color, and gave it a different name.... but it just won't rotate! I also have "Toward Coverage" selected where it says "Symbol Rotation" in the Object Info Palette on all the outlets. Attached are a couple images for clarity. It's a little cluttered, but you can see that the burgundy, black, and dark blue symbols point in the same direction as the coverage, whereas the light blue symbols do not rotate with the coverage direction. Am I doing something wrong? Or is this a bug in the program?
  2. When doing a large irrigation system (I'm working on several with over 70 stations), the connection time is incredibly cumbersome and slow. The file I am currently working on takes up to 15 seconds to make one connection. Additionally, we have already turned off the Auto Calculation Update feature, so that is just processing time. Some simple math to show you how cumbersome this actually is... 830 outlets of just one type (over 2000 total in the project) = 830 connections 830 connections at 15 seconds each = 12,450 seconds = 207.5 minutes = approximately 3.5 hours of drafting to make the connections. When compared to our traditional methods, we could do this drafting in approximately 1 hour or less. So for 2.5 extra hours, what do I get? Some data attached to the pipe network? That would be great, except half the time there is at least 1 error for every 20 outlets, which has to be found, diagnosed, and corrected, adding at least another hour to the mix. I get that we are supposed to be moving into the "smarter, not harder" category, but this is only coming at it from the "smarter" perspective while making it a whole lot harder to meet your targets. Expand your horizons Landmark and start thinking bigger than a single, lot residential project. We need BIG applications here that scale easily!
  3. Is there a way to turn off the automatic irrigation network update that occurs at every pipe connection? The disruption to workflow with having to wait 5-10 seconds after every single lateral pipe placement is getting to be quite tedious on larger irrigation plans. I cannot find any setting to disable this feature. I would much prefer to lay out the lateral lines of a zone and calculate the pipes after I have everything laid out. I do not know if this is an issue with my personal workflow, which is as follows (short version): 1. POC Setup 2. Mainline Run 3. Design Zones 3. Head Placement 4. Lateral Line Placement 5. Valve Cluster Placement Should I be approaching my irrigation drafting in a different order? Can I just turn off calculations until I am ready for them? Thank you.
  4. I find the Hydrozone tool to be very useful for MWELO calcs and for irrigation plans. However, I sometimes find the tool cumbersome to use. One request is how Hydrozones graphically display when there is a hole or negative space in the center of the polygon (or path object). The area seems to calculate properly, but I don't like how it looks like the hydrozone areas overlap in places it's not supposed to. Here are screenshots so you can see what I mean.
  5. I use landmark and use additional plant records to include information about landscape areas such as seed mixes which then input into my schedules (worksheets). As these detailed soft and hard landscape drawings can get very heavy on larger sites (very painful for my work flow), I would like to split up the drawings into seperate files (eg. soft, hard, specific designed spaces) which I then reference as viewports into a drawing with the sheet layers and worksheets. This helps for a number of people to work on the project at once by splitting up the drawings in this way. This works well until I come to schedule the drawings and the records are not imported although landscape areas and plants are. Currently I have to combine my colleagues drawings before scheduling which is very time consuming and usually crashes. It seems sensible that all data is available from referenced viewports.
  6. Hi, I would love to be able to place a plant and it automatically assigns to a class, regardless of the current class setting.
  7. I've created a hardscape by boundary, due to varying width and form - though the hardscape is essentially intended to be a path, and I need to treat it as such in terms of levels. I know using the roadway / pathway settings you can edit each point on the path to set the level and crossfall... is there a way to do this with a boundary hardscape? Essentially I want to be able to input the edge levels along the route in 3D, and then potentially make this a modifier for my site model. Is the workflow for this to edit a base site model, placing stakes at the required chainages, and then set the hardscape as a texture bed only? I'd ideally like to set the levels within the hardscape itself, and keen to use the slab settings within the hardscape to allow detail sections. Any help much appreciated.
  8. In VW2019 and now in VW2020, after the new creation of Plant Styles, there is a problem with the way the Plant Tool operates... Upon picking a precisely defined Plant Style to use with the Plant Tool, the tool does not have the ability to place the plants using the Style Definition for Spread, Height, or Spacing. This means that when plants are placed using the tool, they automatically are placed using a custom Spread, Height, or Spacing. This may or may not match the Style Definition, but that is a mere coincidence. The only way to make a plant placement respond to the Style Definition for Spread, Height and Spacing is by first placing plants and then by going into the Advanced Plant Settings, Size Tab, and switching from Custom Spread, Custom Height, and Custom Spacing to Use Plant Style. This is a SEVERE regression and a problem with current workflows. Instead please allow for the ability in the Plant Tool Preferences to utilize the Plant Definitions Spread, Height, and Spacing as a DEFAULT. @Bryan G.@Tony Kostreski @Eric Gilbey, PLA @Vladislav Stanev
  9. Q: How can the 'Tag Bottom' = Latin Name show up in italics on my plan? Is there a way to assign a Text Style to 'Tag Bottom'? Plant labels on my plan - the result is Thanks in advance for your help! ~ Lara
  10. Hi guys, I've been using Vectoworks Landmark since 2017 and, at this moment, I use it as my exclusive software. Each project that I develop with Vectorworks I try to enhance the BIM capabilities of the software (IFC import, water budget, plant schedule, etc.). After seeing the webinar with Eric Berg, I saw that I have a long path to walk... The questions that I would like present are: Do you reccomend a specific online course? Last year I did one about Sustainable Site Design / Analysis and helped me a lot. Do get to a "smart design", I saw a lot of custom spreadsheets. Are they done with the normal spreadsheets or are you using other resources? Can you give your feedback to "step up the game" and use all the resources that VW offers? Thanks!!
  11. Hello Site Design forum members. Have you been implementing any workflows which integrate with GIS data, imagery and/or geometry? If so, please reach out to us at landmark@vectorworks.net . As many of you know, we have recently joined Esri's partnership program as a Silver Tier Partner. Through this, we have several opportunities to reach other design professionals like you who are looking to improve their site analysis and planning workflows, but less aware of how GIS and related geospatial resources enable them to do that within Vectorworks. We believe that sharing your workflow examples could inspire them to do just that. The recent release of Vectorworks Landmark, Architect and Designer 2020 introduced new GIS integration features, such as Geolocate and Geoimage, which can save a great amount of time in providing georeferencing to a file, or in adding visual context for the planning work you are including as part of your project deliverables. Prior to this year's release, and still certainly available, is the ability to import georeferenced shapefile (SHP) data and georeferenced image files, such as GeoTIFF, TFW, JGW, BPW, etc.. Designers using Vectorworks could not only import those files, but they could modify them in 2D visualizations and in 3D models, allowing them to quickly add context into the projects which they are designing. So, whether you have some examples to share from the workflows we have offered before the 2020 release, or perhaps you have already been putting the 2020 new features to use, please let us know by emailing us by this Friday, October 18, and we will follow up with some communication about the potential of showing off your expertise and improved workflows. Thank you for your time in considering this opportunity. We look forward to hearing from you soon. Best regards, Eric Eric Gilbey, PLA Product Marketing Manager

  13. One annoying thing I've notice with drip outlets is that Vectorworks doesn't calculate the total drip line lengths when you specify that you want a branching configuration. It seems to be accurate and give a total amount when you specify a snaking configuration, but you end up with "estimated average line length" instead of total line length on branching configurations. This doesn't seem very helpful. Would it be possible to get the total drip line length on branching areas (excluding headers and footers)?
  14. I find right-clicking a regular symbol and then using the "Locate Symbol in Resource Manager" tool to be very helpful. But I wish you could also do this with a Plant Symbol in Landmark.
  15. I am trying to show the visual effects of a proposed carpark and visitor facility. I have imported a textured .obj survey file in the form of a mesh (see attached file) and I need to insert the site model for the new carpark into this while keeping the terrain and textures of the surrounding area intact. I find when I try to edit/cut a hole in the mesh to create a space for the new carpark, the texture disappears. Is there a way to 'bake' the texture onto the 3d polygons within the mesh? or can the mesh be converted into another form that allows me to do this? Thanks, Steve
  16. Working on building a worksheet where clients and users will see the composition of the slab styles that will be used in Hardscapes. I've managed to create in the attached just such a thing but have run into a little difficulty. When using a function to get the thickness of a component it is adding all of the components regardless of which slab they are a part. The attached file has our slabs and the worksheet with the cells in question. My vulnerability is Worksheets and I'm learning more every day but I really could use some help on this one. Your time and effort is greatly appreciated! Have a great weekend! Slab Styles.vwx
  17. My client has an office in China and evidently use a different project or at least one offset from WGS-84. Would it be possible to get some guidance or an update that will add China to the list under Plate Carree, Ellipsoid GCJ-02 coordinate system?
  18. Hi is there a decent way to use walls on slopes . The wall should folllow a parallel height to the ground . fixed height on starting and ending point. but should follow down a hill.. if I send my wall to the surface to my model, it follows perfectly on the bottom the slope.but not on the top.. is there any way not to correct it manually ? thanx in advance

    This file is most useful for Landmark users but could be adapted to other plugin objects (PIOs). The purpose of these scripts are to take surveys of existing trees that consist of "dumb" data - pieces of geometry and text to label trees on a survey - and convert it into Existing Trees with the relevant text data associated. The first network, "Test Proximity," runs a check to make sure that each piece of text is closest to its associated piece of geometry. This is necessary to make sure that the second script will work properly. The second network takes the center of each piece of geometry and places an Existing Tree there. It will use the saved red symbol in the Resource Manager as a template, so if you use particular default settings for your Existing Trees, you can edit the red symbol. (Some day maybe there will be an Existing Tree Style!) The network will also transfer the text data to your chosen field of the Existing Tree PIO. In this network, it is set to transfer to the Tree No data field. This network could be adapted to other PIOs if needed.
  20. One of our users runs into this issue from time to time where after placing an existing tree and editing several of them the tool locks up as shown below. In the tool itself all options are missing. and the object info palette is missing other things. The only way out of this to close the file and exit VW. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
  21. Need Landmark year since 2016. Spanish, English or German language. Make me an offer. My mail: konradanja@gmail.com. Thanks
  22. I'm wondering if I'm missing something in terms of the control we have over site modelling in Vectorworks. I've attached a screengrab of a site model I have created. Blue lines are the 3D polyline contours I have drawn and set to 0.5m height intervals, the green lines are the contour lines generated by the site model calculation by Vectorworks, using my blue lines as input data. I have two big issues with this output, namely: I want the model to EVENLY interpolate between the contour lines - for example on the hill to the bottom of the screen grab, I want the mounding to extend evenly to the left, I don't want flat platforms between each level. I want the contours to actually follow the curves I have drawn, and not truncate my contours in large angular lines!! (As seen in the middle of the screengrab.) Is there anything I can do, aside from draw contours at really tight intervals to reduce the visibility of the problem? Is this just how the site modelling algorithm works? I understand the need for a mathematical algorithm, but this results in a fundamentally incorrect site model I can't really use for anything in terms of BIM or production information, as it isn't giving me smooth grades. I'm sure I could fudge it for visualisation purposes, but I need an accurate technical model I can issue in IFC form to provide information for collaboration and also construction. I've turned on mesh smoothing in document properties, which makes the rendered model appear slightly less angular, and also turned on contour smoothing display, but I need an accurate model in terms of BIM compliance and I'm not sure I have this control outwith doing an excessive amount of contour drawing. Is Vectorworks the wrong software for this, or am I missing something? Any ideas or advice would be much appreciated. Lisa

  24. Hi, Can someone please help me? Pretty basic I would imagine however I can'y work it out!! How do I get a 3D image of a whole Landscape plan? I can get 3D images on separate Design Layers however can't get an image of the whole project as one 3D image. Please help, its doing my head in!! Cheers Prish
