  1. Since the update 2, when i start vectorworks, there is by minimum once a day the message appearing, that the resource manager library is out of date. Also appears on windows machines in our office. Not a big issue, but does anyone else have this behaviour?
  2. We finally have begun to use project sharing with one of our projects. Our server is a Synology nas, fresh out of the box for 6 weeks. The project that we started with, is converted from a vwx 2022 version. The project was setup yesterday and in the afternoon the first message appeared, that the metadata size is to large and should be cleaned. The count was 99379 entities. We followed the instructions to clear the metadata and after that 2 users got the message that the working file is no longer valid to work with the project file. We generated new working files and copy-pasted the data from the old working file to the new one. So far. This afternoon the message about the increase of the metadata appeared again! This time the count is 59959 entities. The size of the project file is 150mb. Actually only 3 people are accessing this file. Two have administrative priviliges, the other one is set to project level. Vectorworks version 2024.2 Accessing machines are 2 windows pc´s with win10pro and my mcbook as in the signature. Connection to the server is set to smb only. Anything we might have done wrong or any suggestions why this happens in such short time? screenshots from yesterday screenshot from this afternoon
  3. I was playing with lighting, trying to simulate led stripe similar lights. I used a small area light and saw in an elevation, that the light distribution is unequal compared to the geometry. The aera light was generated from a rectangle, 2000mm by 10mm. I compared this to a line light, which has an equal light ditribution. Maybe a very specific case, but not as expected. See the screenshots below. Upper images rendered in vwx. Lower ones "tuned" in ps to show the lightdistribution.
  4. Playing around with the new door functionality in Vw2024, and it seems that the new Interactive Handing functionality was intended primarily for use in 2D Top / Plan mode. 1) In a 3D view, with the Door tool selected, after you click on a Wall to insert the door, the only hint you have that you have to do something else to insert the door is the hint in the bottom left corner of the screen saying 'Standard Insertion Mode. Set Flip'. 2) The onscreen preview of the door in the wall does not change as you move the cursor around the door opening. 3) The little triangle at the bottom of the door - showing what I presume is the door orientation - doesn't change with respect to moving the mouse around. So it seems that if you insert doors in 3d, then you'll need to go to 2D Top / Plan view to correctly set the door handing. vw2024 door 3d.mov It's a similar situation when inserting a Window; it's waiting for you to set the Flip, but you only get the subtle hint in the bottom left corner.
