  1. Hello people, I just edit because I found this way. import vs import os Vendor = 'ACME' Price = 123.45 Tax = 1.07 fileName = 'Classes.txt' def Example(): vs.GetFile(fileName) if not vs.DidCancel(): vs.Rewrite(Vendor, 0) #vs.WriteBin(Vendor) #vs.WriteMac(Vendor) #vs.WriteLnMAC(Vendor) #vs.Write(Vendor) vs.Close(fileName) Example() But, the next attributes get this message: "AttributeError: module 'vs' has no attribute 'WriteBin'. " -vs.Write -vs.WriteLnMac -vs.WriteBin -vs.WriteMac With write I don't get error, but also no result. -vs.Rewrite
  2. Hi, Newbie here; I am currently trying to export a render of my work as an image file - however whenever I choose the settings and then save, it works for a little while (with the timer counting for a while) and then Vectorworks goes into 'not responding' mode. This has happened every time that I've tried to export. At the risk of losing work I have just left it, and after about 5 hours it unfreezes and the image saves; but surely this is not necessary!! I am exporting at around a 4000x2000 px size, and have tried down to 75dpi (where it has still frozen.) Is there a way to fix this? Thanks
  3. Hi All, I am trying to export some 3D massing models (pitched roofed house models for context to a site model) to rhino but I cannot get any consistent results. I have tried most of the 3D export options, but VW either flattens the 3D down to the 2D plane, or tears the 3D model into individual planes and then centres them on the origin. The only conversion that gives me approximate 3D house style shapes is the 3DS export option, but all the geometry goes a bit wonky. Does anyone know a workflow I can use to export 'massing models' into usable 3D geometry I can import into another program. Thank you. Nicholas McLeod

    Dwg Export incorrect scale 350%

    Hi All, Having a problem exporting from a vectorworks 2018 model file sheet layer, where the resulting dwg seems to be scaled to 350% (exactly). I'm hoping this is something obvious we've overlooked our end, any suggestions?? Thanks, A

  6. Hi all, I've been trying to troubleshoot a file that a friend sent over. The task is to export a lighting plot which has been drawn in Vectorworks into DWG with all the 3D Spotlight objects in its proper 3D space when being opened in AutoCAD. The lighting plot includes lighting trusses that are at an angle, so Design Layer Viewports have been used to properly display the angled trusses in 3D. I have discovered that once hybrid symbols are being sent into DLVP I am unable to export the 3D objects to DWG properly. The DLVP objects that are exported are in its angled orientation but only with the 2D elements exported and not the 3D elements. The lighting truss and lighting fixtures that are not sent into DLVP - i.e. those that are in its "normal" horizontal orientation remains exported as expected. To demonstrate, I have created a VWX test file with Spotlight 3D objects and exported it to DWG. Attached is the 3D test VWX file, another VWX file with the DWG reimported back in, as well as a couple of snapshots with the export settings. In the snapshots, the truss with its angled orientation is on the left, while the right is the truss with its normal orientation. Possible (serious) bug, or am I doing something wrong?

    IFC Export Data Wall Types

    Hi All, Having a bit of a nightmare at the moment exporting an IFC file for our QS on a BIM project from 3D Vectorworks Model. I have been using various wall types, which are largely generic at this stage. Currently 5 core types, 3 of which are generic walls (3 different thicknesses but no buildup shown), 2 of which are curtain walling types. The QS is trying to break down the building into different wall types to put costs against them. They have told us that the IFC Data they would expect to see in the model (which they would use to read these varying wall types) is not appearing when they open our IFC file. Looking at the model in Solbri, I can see that a lot of fields I would expect to be filled in are blank, and the walls are not searchable/sub-dividable by type. Has anyone successfully used wall types in IFC exports? Have I missed a key step where IFC data is added to each wall type? i.e. 'Wall type code', allowing all wall types to be differentiated in the model. Can anyone explain the 'IFC' menu under 'Data' in each wall type? Where on the below screenshot should we be inputting information? The 'global' vs 'single instance' toggle buttons in the IFC data panel don't work how I would expect them to. I would expect this to allow you to set, say, all instances of the wall type in question to have the same 'type' or 'name'. However clicking on the toggle appears to make data disapear, and clear the field. (I can't explain this very well - please try it yourself if you are reading this and hopefully what I'm saying will make sense!) Any advice much appreciated. Thanks, A
  8. so I need to export a dwg - but I only want the export to include the elements you can see in the sheet - how is. this done?! help! thanks

    Vectorworks to Revit Export

    What is the most up to date recommended workflow to export BIM objects from Vectorworks to Revit while keeping their properties intact?

    Cinema 4D to Vectorworks

    I know it's a backwards workflow, but I may have a new client soon who does concept/visualization in C4D, and I'd like to import their models into Vectorworks. They currently have this workflow: C4D --> SketchUp --> AutoCAD. Ultimately they should go: Vectorworks -->C4D, but I may or may not convince them to change their workflow. Meanwhile, can anyone tell me whether there's an export path from C4D to Vectorworks that preserves C4D NURBS? Their current workflow does not, obviously, and that's a headache for them.
  12. Background info: An architect client uses Revit. They usually export to DWG and that works okay, but it seems to be somewhat of a hassle for them. Not sure why. They have shared some Revit files, but the import feature in VW 2017 and 2018 does not produce a usable VW file. I asked them to try an export to IFC. The didn't know how to do that... So, I'm looking for a best practice guide to give to them for exporting Revit to IFC. Request To Vectorworks: PLEASE publish a straightforward step by step process for a Revit user to export an IFC file which will be usable for VW. If this exists, I couldn't find it. A VW webpage dedicated to a Revit to IFC Workflow would be very helpful for VW users. We can send our Revit clients to it. This would also be a great marketing opportunity to Revit users who may be interesting in switching to VW. Thanks!

    IFC EXPORT MISSING GEOMETRY

    I’m carrying out a pre-issue check of the vwx to ifc file in Solibri and have come across the error shown below. Exported geometries on a number of objects (not restricted to stairs) are exporting incorrectly. This hasn't happened in any previous ifc exports of this file and I’m at a loss as to why it should start now. VWX's ridiculous ifc export times isn't helping matters. Has anyone experienced this? Thanks

    Export 3D PDF - Layers Order

    Is it possible to influence the order of Layers and classes when exporting 3D PDF? I have an order of Layers 01, 02, 03, etc... and I want them to be exported in that order as a 3D PDF and stay in that order when opening my PDF viewer. Is this possible? Right now they stay in a disorganised order. Thank you!
  15. Hello, When I Export a File from Vectorworks as .DWG, certain curves lines (arcs) and polylines change to line segments that are not curved anymore and the shapes change from round shapes to shapes with angles (squared). If I import back that same file to Vectorworks, some longer lines become fragmented in smaller lines. Is there any options to avoid this situations or at least make it smaller? Increasing the document DPI did not helped. In general I find several problems with Export .dwg and Import .dwg Thank you.
  16. Dear VW lovers, would anyone know if it is possible to export Renderworks Style Settings into a worksheet or excel spread sheet? I have multiple Renderworks Styles and currently I am creating screenshots and copy paste them into a file for comparison. This is a huge effort and I would love to have a faster and more convenient work around for this. Any input is much appreciated. Cheers, Grethe
  17. Hi all, Trying to export a DWG and getting the enclosed error about a Teigha library? Any ideas? Thank you E_
  18. Hi, I'm using the Send to Cinema 4d command and the fist time I did the export everything worked perfectly. Now I have updated my project in Vectorworks and have wanted to Send to Cinema 4D once again. The result is terrible. The main problem is that many Instances of Vectorworks symbols are now broken and some symbols export with no texture tags. It's not possible to work this way. One needs to be able to update the Vectorworks model and send it to Cinema 4D.

    IFC exporting issues

    Hi, I am currently working towards PAS1192:2-2013 mandate and I am having some issues with the IFC import and the way we create windows. As we work on large housing schemes we work with window types, a method Vectorworks have previously advised to do it. So we create windows and then turn into symbols, so when placed within a wall they appear as a 'symbol in the wall'. However when exporting to IFC and either re-importing into VW to test or into Solibre Model Checker, the IFC format does not acknowledge the relationship between the wall and the window. I therefore tried exploding the symbol to test if it was this and when it is a 'window in wall' it views fine. I was wondering if anyone has had a similar issue and a work around. One way i was going to try was using symbol geometry in the window settings. therefore if you change the original source component then this will still change. However this will result in manual window changes to each window for height width etc. I have attached a solider model checker screenshot showing the if import result of a door in a wall as a 'symbol in a wall'. This also applies to doors. Thank you. Gavin
  20. Having issues exporting an ifc file. Everything converts and exports as it should, yet it takes 45mins plus for it to process and complete. File size, after purging is 370mb approx. Stories all set up correctly, for each of the 16 stories. Set in plan/top view when exporting, 3D conversion is "low" and most settings are as per the Vectorworks "Sharing your model with IFC" Document. Really is poor, as it means that no drawing work can be done until after the export. ArchiCAD users in the office export larger buildings than this in under a min in work. Any further tips? or is this standard for VW? You can see from the attached image, there is not a lot of detail in the model. Also attached is my computer specs. Its a top of the range iMac
  21. Hello, it would be very helpful to have the opportunity to export a Vectorworks 3D model into a Sketch up file. Allplan, Archicad and soem others are already able to do that... Thank you in advance! Nik
  22. Hi all, Wondering if there's any way to export the XYZ coordinates of Vectorworks Focus Points and then map them into Lightwright focus points? There's a export "Focus" function in the spotlight export pop up dialogue (See screenshot) but only the focus names turn up. Thoughts? Gabriel

    Export to DWG Issue

    Hi All, I have been having trouble exporting sheets to DWG where the viewport has render works as its background render and hidden line as its foreground render. I can only get the background render (and annotations) to export no matter which export options I select. Has anyone got any ideas on what I could be doing wrong here? My current workaround is to change all the viewports to hidden line for the background render to export and then changing them back which is a very time consuming process. Thanks!
  24. I wish the DWG Export had an option to convert all Extrudes to Generic Solids before exporting. Currently all my Extrudes, a Geometry Type I really like, inside VW, get exported as lose DWG Polyfaces. (Even only when "Triangulate to preserve Fills "activated, otherwise just un-filled Polylines) Currently, to avoid that, I would need to : - "save as" File Ccopy for export - check and set Layers/Classes visibilities - Select Similar > Extrudes - Convert to Generic Solids - Export - Close Export File - re-open VW File Same wish for FBX Export.
  25. Hey there, is there any way to to overwrite or disable additional characters (ü, ä, ö, ?, /, ",% ...) temporarily (without renaming) for the dwg/dxf or other exports? Cheers
