  1. Hi Everyone. I've been keen to get into using the structural member tool, and so far I've picked up a couple of issues, but I might be wrong of course! Firstly, I'm in the UK and although we have a big list of Universal beams, I can't find any UK universal columns. Have a look at Tata Blue book, http://tsbluebook.steel-sci.org/EN/Browsers/Main.htm Go to, advance sections, Advance UKC on the left, and perhaps click axial compression to see the standard steel sizes.... Can't find them in VW2017 (I've got the designer edition) I also use a lot of custom profiles, such as Metsec and Kingspan purlins and side rails and would like to input these custom shapes... In the preview teaser video the gent mentioned that you could put in custom profile details, but I can't find that anywhere! Is there a csv text file or something where I can add my own custom profiles in? and are the UK Universal columns going to be added, just like the Universal Beams are? It's a bit useless without the ability to use the most important steel shapes Cheers
  2. Hello, I have a mayor problem which I just discovered in the Spotlight module. When I select a random lighting instrument and select "Edit" and perform a random edit, VW crashes immediately. This happens on all the Mac's we use VW on. Also we discovered an issue with Inserting Lighting Positions, this feature is not working properly anymore. I would appreciate a quick reaction on these issues !!

  3. 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.
  4. Hi, has someone already updated to macOS Sierra? How does Sierra work with VW 2016 / 2017 yet, any dramatic problems so far?
  5. Has anyone had success creating a viewport with data visualizations based on a custom record format? I can only get it to work with "Special Records" (Spaces, etc...). Also, is there a way to combine record field values to change attributes based on If/And statements? I guess what I'm looking for is something similar to the custom selection feature. Thanks in advance for any help or comments! This seems like it has the potential to be a powerful tool! -Chris
