Hi All, This is hopefully a very quick question with an obvious answer I'm overlooking.. Autosave options in Vectorworks are pretty straightforwards. I have it set to update every 15 minutes to 'a backup folder in the same place as the original file'. Great; it creates a folder called 'VW Backup' and I can see all the autosaved .vwx files in there. But what are the '.bak. files which seem to be littering the folder where the main .vwx files are saved? Do I need to keep these? Should I keep deleting them? I've never really understood what they are. Thanks!
Hi, I have come across this problem with one of my Vectorworks file. When I try to open the file it gives me this error "Unexpected end of file encountered during file read operation" and when I hit ok, it goes into recovery mode and recovers only a few layers out of all. I am trying to find out a way to recover this file completely. Please if anybody who had a similar experience and successfully recovers the file can guide me through the process. 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
