  1. Almost everything gets modeled in 3d these days. Associative Dimensioning is only possible with 2d geometry in Vectorworks. Is wish it was possible on 3d geometry as well. The following tools should be able to recognize 3d geometry in models and work associative on sheet layers and design layers: - Unconstrained Linear Dimensioning - Constrained Linear Dimensioning - Dual Dimensioning - Radial Dimensioning - Marking Object Centers - Angular Dimensioning - Arc Length Dimensioning Vectorworks should be able to recognize radial dimensions and curves on shelled nurbs surfaces and perfect round extruded polygons. Attached I have a file I wish VW could dimension associative and would be able to recognize al the different dimensions. Pleas pitch in for enhancements on this wish. Associative Dimensioning.vwx

    dimensions

    Hi Everytime I make a linear dimension, its default attribute will always be Solid, even if I change in the attribute palette to be None. What am I missing? thanks Joey Vectorworks 2019
  3. Why do I get this when changing Dimension Std.? Whats wrong? Object creation failed due to invalid parameter(s). Please use different parameter(s).

    "Automatic" dimension

    Hi, Sometimes when I create a dimension in annotations on my viewport, I get these small grenn dots. So when the object is moved on my design layer, the dimension follow on the sheet layer. But this is only sometimes. Why does this only happens sometimes, and what is the magic way to make this happen?
  5. Hello, helpful crew, I'm drawing dimensions within a group on a class set to be visable, appearence settings for fill and line are black 0.13 pen weight. Class settings similar. The dimensions 'should' appear as they are drawn, like any other entity. Why aren't they appearing? Regards, Dan

    Measurments and units

    Hello!! Please help me figure this out! I have spent many hours trying to fix this problem but was not able to. Basically, my measurement changed but I did not resize anything or change the settings and all my drawings are on a scale of 1:1. In the images below my measurements used to be 500mm and 200 mm. now it adds so many zeros and the number changes and drawing size wasn't touched or changed. how to I fix it? I also added an attached an image of my unit settings.
  7. From the worldcadaccess blog on the new B-thingy version " The new dimension-style families feature consists of a parent style with one or more child styles. This is a handy way for you to make subtle modifications to just parts of dimension styles. For instance, child styles let you make linear and angular dimensions look different from one another" This would be a nice feature for Vectorworks to have as well. For example I sometimes need to adjust dimensions in tight spaces where the regular dimension style would not fit, e.g. slightly smaller text and arrows compared to the standard style. Instead of having to create new styles having a child style where the similar parts update together with the parent style if that gets updated (e.g. text style change)
  8. I am new to using Viewports. I have modeled an object on a design layer and have now begun building viewports on sheet layers. When i attempt to dimension objects in the viewports (after first double clicking the viewport to edit annotations) i encounter the following problems; 1. If i want to show the angle of something, i find i first have to draw two lines over the objects and then use the angle tool to get the angle of those 2 lines. 2. Similarly, if i want to use the radius tool on a curved piece of geometry, i have to find it's center, and draw a circle out to it, use the radius tool on the circle, disassociate the dimension from the circle and delete the cir cle so that it doesn't show up in my drafting. 3. anything curved seems to be a real problem for viewports, displaying it properly, (increasing the 3d conversion resolution in Vectorworks preferences) and as i said above dimension-ing it, finding it's center. So is this the way these things are supposed to work? or am i really missing something? I've been using V-Works for about 9 years now, having started with V-Works10 / moving up to 2009 / 2011 and now a big jump to 2016. I work in the entertainment industry, drafting scenery for movies and TV, not alot of standard doors or windows, lots of curvy sci-fi things, typically i am building the objects myself, but now I have to draft them for others, love the idea of viewports, but feel i am missing something as relates to dimesioning and displaying them efficiently. Thanks for reading this. Paul
  9. The ability to set a Custom Class for the 'Create Dimensions in dimensions class' option on the Document Preferences tab. For example, I use a modified AIA CAD Layer Standards so I put my dimensions in an 'ANNO-DIMS' class. The ability to automatically put all of my dimensions in this class (instead of the 'Dimensions' class) would be welcome.
  10. Dimension object with Leader and Note text (which goes below the text line). Problem is that the Note text doesn't stay below the line, it'll go the opposite direction of wherever you drag the dimension text. The Dimension Note text should always stay below the line of Dimension text.
