Hello forum, I'm a complete newbie with VW Architect 2019. I'm trying to use the furn/fixtures tools, base cabinets, custom cabinets etc. I'm not quite getting the customisation I need. In the base cabinets tool I'd like to eliminate the stile around the perimeter, screenshot attached, red circled is VW base unit, blue circled is cabinet I have drawn up. How customisable are the cabinets ? Is there any online support/tutorial showing how to fully customise these objects ? Second question is, if we have to create our own cabinets, can we make our own library which is in the VW resource files ? ps, I'm aware of InteriorCad for cabinets, our budget has been totally spent recently, 3 new workstations, 3 VW Architect 2019 licenses and various other accessories ☺️,
In Blind corner base cabinets the are 2 uncoordinated representations between the 2D (Top Plan) and 3D; 1. End finish still shows a line in 2D even if set to none. 2. Countertop overhang extends further then setting in 3D (ie: it should be only above the door and butt into adjacent perpendicular cabinets countertop.) See attached file Oh! and the Bug Submit page is giving me Error 500, Internal Server Error on Google Chrome Windows 10 BLIND_BASE_CABINET.vwx
OK, so I was told that this issue was resolved with the latest version (2018), but it has not been. Here's the deal: The Base Cabinet tool has some bugs. Whatever height you set the cabinet to it will be short by 1/2". For instance, a 35" tall cabinet will measure 34.5" tall. Also, when selecting the 3 drawer cabinet the top and second drawer overlap unless you set the mid spacing to greater than 5/8" which makes creating a modern drawer cabinet with slab doors impossible. Does anyone else still have these issues? I've attached a file so you can see the issue. Thanks. Cabinets Still Funky.vwx
Some of us who've drafted cabinet elevations for, say 40 years, have a difficult time finding the efficiency in modeling cabinets to create interior elevations. At the moment, VW has several cabinet-model tools (not unlike the several stair tools) which can be confusing at best. Each has a different approach with inherent advantages/limits. Most offices either draw "realistic" cabinetry, or "schematic" cabinetry, which might offer some direction in choosing which VW tool to use. However all the VW tools offer far too much lifework for the "schematic" (one--line) documentation of cabinetry. Bottom line: if I can still draw it 2D much faster than modeling it 3D, what's the point of 3D cabinetry? Most projects for us have only minor interior elevation changes. So the up-front time to model Cabinets does not return time dividends. The new Custom Cabinet tool holds promise, but needs several tweaks to be useful. - More control over position and orientation of pills - door swing lines for Hidden Line render mode - adding a shelf (shorter depth) or a clothes Rod
