Our projectfile is by default accessible as "project" for new users. The file is located on our server, accessed either over VPN or on our LAN. Unfortunately one new user gets the message that "the project file is in read-only state and is not writeable". The user is otherwise able to access and write on the server. We have un- and reinstalled once – with no luck. Any ideas as to where the problem lies and how to solve it? Computer, network and server are all mac and updated. Thanks Lars Larsen
John Whyte posted a topic in General DiscussionWe are running VWX 2014 Architect between a few users in a team. We share all our drawings over a shared dropbox folder. We name our files as follows for different parts of the project which are all referenced to each other using referenced design layers : PROJECT NAME - LIGHTING PROJECT NAME - FURNITURE SETTING OUT etc.. Sometimes we've noticed file names changing from ALL CAPS as above, to all lower case - Any idea why this could be happening ? I dont think its a dropbox issue as i havnt noticed it happening with any other non VWX files shared in dropbox.
I am still having issues with a design client who wants to share exhibition design files with me (I provide the lighting design for their exhibitions). They usually want to send me a single project file, which contains all of the drawings, and usually requires several referenced drawings (the building walls, base build information and so forth). As they are designing 3D exhibitions, then scans or .jpegs of the objects or artworks are included. The upshot is the file sizes can often reach 800-900MB. For me, only adding a layer of lighting information to each drawing, this makes the files unwieldy & slow to use. At present, the simplest work around for the designers is to export the relevant drawings to me in .dwg format, which I then convert back to .vwx to use. This is clearly silly, and we are now beginning to wonder why we don't just all convert to using Autocad to cut out the middleman. Is there a way the designers could export the drawings that I need in a simple manner without all of the detail that they want to keep? The process of stripping this detail out for them is deeply tedious, so they just send me .dwgs. Why can't Vectorworks offer such a similar feature that reduces the file size, without us needing to invoke a third-party process?
Just found a nice and easy way to present web view links rather than sending the long email link web view generates to clients... if you create an image (say, a still from your 3d model), paste it into an email and then add a hyperlink to the image. I guess pretty obvious in hindsight, but I'm pretty pleased with the result so felt the urge to share!
