Is it possible to import an AutoCad Architecture model and have the wall/door/window styles come and the objects these styles create (doors, walls and windows) come thru as smart 3D objects? So far every effort results in 3D objects becoming 2D "groups", no intelligent/parametric features and to use the resulting geometry (the "groups") as the basis of the VW model requires the groups to be converted further into simple lines. I've tried a number of different settings in the "Advanced" menu of the DXF/DWG Import Options including converting 2D objects to 3D. Thank you. Tom
We are having difficulty editing a dwg. imported from CAD into Vectorworks 2017 See screengrab image highlighting the problem. In the OIP the file is shown as DWG - Referenced. This I think is preventing us from editing the content (although we can see all of the plan drawings). If I try and import the dwg. without checking the "Reference" option we can only view the first drawing in the dwg. file. If I import and check the "Reference" option we can view all plan drawings but can't edit. The layer is set to "Design Layer". What are we doing wrong? Thanks!
