1. ## Line Plane Intersection Node

Version 1.0.0

Description This node calculates where a line (not a line segment!) and a plane intersect. Input / output The plane is defined by its normal vector and a point on the plane. The line is defined by two points. The output point is where the line and plane intersect. Example Usage The example in the file combines the node with the Get Distance node to check if a three dimensional line intersects with a NURBS surface. This network can be used to create several simulations that can answer questions like: Do sunrays reach a balcony? Is the church tower visible from a window? Etc. Script is based on: https://rosettacode.org/wiki/Find_the_intersection_of_a_line_with_a_plane#Python The node uses numpy. Thanks to DomC for creating a numpy importer node. Niels Timmer March 2020
2. ## surface hatch not rendering

as shown in the attachment, the vertical hatch is not rendering out completely leaving a blank white space. I tried changing the wall style and surface hatch components but nothing is working. is there anyway to correct this?
3. ## Site Model Crop | Error on Surface

Hi guys, good afternoon, I attach to this post the VW file. The project relates to a road rehabilitation (creation of a walkable course, parking area, etc.). I added the stakes of the topographic survey, created the surface and then added the intervention limit. To that point on, the surface started having 3d errors. I tried to simplify the limit, but the errors kept going. Any suggestions? How to you usually faced this problems? Best regards, João Rodrigues 2017_03_02_ACESSO_MARINHA.vwx
4. ## Add support for Surface Dial

Hi, can we please add official support for the Microsoft Surface Dial? especially on the Surface Book 2 and Studio where you can place it on the screen to get more features and options?! Being able to use it as a symbol selection tool would be amazing! with it showing the symbols...
5. ## Send Objects to Surface...works sometimes, but not always

We often work with site models to visualize projects and there has always been an issue with sending items to the surface. Sometimes it works and other times, no matter what I try, it doesn't Curious if anyone has determined best practices for this or experienced the same issue and have a work around?
6. ## How to create 3D rocks

I'm Trying to create rocks and I'm using the draped surface method which creates the desired look, however, it take FOREVER to adjust it to have a rock outline from the square it starts as. I have tons of custom rocks I have to do this to and I was wondering if there is a faster way to create a 3D rock with the desired outer shape already present so I don't have to spend so much time reshaping the edge of the draped surface.
7. ## Surface Area of a 3D Solid

Is there a way to determine the surface area of a 3D solid? I have a multifaceted solid with about 50 different faces. (essentially a single component solid of a modeled building) How can i find the total area without clicking on each surface and viewing the properties? Thanks!
8. ## Calculate surface per class?

I have a model with mass models and a landscape. For the mass model I've made an entire worksheet that gives me a lot of information instantly. Now I'm trying to find a way to do kind of the same thing for the landscape. I have made several classes ( private green, public green, water, hard surface,...) all in the same layer (landscape). I was wondering of it's possible to make a worksheet that gives me in one column the name of the class and in the other column the entire surface of all the polygons in that class? Thanks in advance!
9. ## Curvature and Surface Analysis like in Rhino

Hi Vectorworks. Are there any curvature and surface analysist tools like in Rhino planned for the future? They would be very useful/needed for CAM tasks with organic shapes/solids. This is what Rhino provides: http://docs.mcneel.com/rhino/5/usersguide/en-us/html/ch-09_curveandsurfaceanalysis.htm Thanks in advance for any answer. Markus
