I was wondering if there is a way to add Sizes or Series to the Structural Shapes tools already present in the Detailing toolset within vectorworks. Our issue is that the Angle shapes don't include many of the smaller sizes that are common. It only goes down to 1.5x188.8.131.52 and we would love to be able to use it to quickly model shapes as small as 0.5X0.5X0.125. The chart of standard ASTM A36 steel angle sizes below shows where VW standard sizes start and what we are missing on the small size end.
I would like to know how I can insert new standards in the Structural Member category. How do I enter new usages / Member Types / New Shapes? I can not locate in the root of the software where I can put this new information, neither the own settings that comes with VectorWorks. I’m using Vectorworks 2017 SP3
Hello! I'm in trouble with wall style and wall framer. I did set a style of my wall (ParetePlatformFrame) and I'm unable to match the interior component (PlatformFrame) to a frame generated by Wall framer. The control offset is ok... It seems that the Wall framer start to the middle axes instead of the control line, as shown by the dashed red line... You could try by yourself, deleting my wall and drawing a new. Is there a way to do that? Here's the file... Thank you L. PS Of course, I could set a Wall, with a proper offset, just for structure, but it's not what I do expect in 2017... :-)) PlatformFrame.vwx
Hello! I think I need a complete tutorial about the news structural member tool, because there are things that seems doesn't works. I do place four columns, then I try to draw the beams, but it draw them at the bottoms of columns instead of the head. I do set the proper elevation in the dialog box, but it's the same... So, the build has some problems to fix (OXS - 327801) (to let auto join works, I have to deselect and then select it again - just for example) or I do somethings wrong and then I need some tutorial. Thank you L.
