Hello Everyone, I am hoping someone can help me solve this issue. I work on with VWX 2020 on MAC. I tried to export a dwg/dxf and got this error: ODA Platform Error. Does anyone know what this is and how to solve it? I would appreciate any help. Thanks!!
Hi All, We are currently in the process of constructing a complex 3D vectorworks model with the end goal of exporting from Vectorworks to rhino, in order to render in V-ray. Any ideas as how to best construct and export so that the file is as clean as possible, with all appropriate layers, when imported into rhino? KM VW 2016 SP3
For the production (CNC-milling and waterjet cutting) of several parts I need DWG and DFX-files I have a problem with the exported lines. The exported lines from VW should be (to work properly with the different machines) 'polylines', but sometimes they are 'splines' (see image underneath and the difference between how the curves are drawn). If I convert the splines in Autocad to polylines they get hundreds of extra control points and the different milling/cutting machines aren't able to use those (and the line gets faceted). My workflow: - Draw the model in 3D - extract planar object - change the objects to screen plane - export the selected object to DWG or DFX version 2010 or earlier The odd things is that from different object, but the same file, I get different types of lines in Autocad. Anybody experience with this? Anybody knows how I can export them so i get clean polylines? Attached the different files, if anybody could have a look i would be very happy!
