  1. 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

  3. Hi everybody, after some trial and error id like to show everyone what i think is the best method to convert to DWG for when sending out to conultants if anyone has any info that could make this better please share! we can all help eachother so go to your model layer and make sure its on top/plan.. for example the layer with your first floor then go to FILE>Export>ExportDXF/DWG you get the pop up of options follow these settings File Format Format: DWG Version: 2013/2014/2015/2016/2017 Class / Layer Conversions Export as DXF/DWG Layers : Classes Invisible Classes are: Not Exported leave the box for "export single layer for classes with same name" unchecked leave the box for "export layers as seperate files" unchecked Sheets to include Export: Design Layers Only References leave the box for "export design layer viewports as seperate files" unchecked Objects: the only box that should be checked should be the "export as flattened 2d graphics" text and dimensions the only box that should be checked is "preserve SIA dimensions text appearance " 2d fills and files only check these boxes, "export hatches" "export hatch pattern files" "export hatches and 2d fills into seperate dxf/dwg layers" 3d both boxes should be checked no boxes should be checked in symbols and groups or line types line weights and colors only check the box for "use dxf/dwg indexed colors" you will have to do this for each floor seperatley once the file is in CAD you will need to do few cleans up listed below -explode everything as much as you can (because when a consultant copies your plan to there file an unexploded plan will not work) -clean up hatches (because we are doing hatches in sepereate layers you can easily just freeze it) do a final review of your lines and such and then thats it you are done
  4. Hi, I am looking for a laptop (to work from home) that can handle vectorworks architect as I use it for rendering and 3D modelling. Can anyone suggest any laptops that have a suitable specification to do the job which are under £1000? Thanks in advance, Sam

  6. Hi everybody I would like to export images (PSD, TIFF) with layers from Vectorworks to import it in Photoshop / Procreate. Is there a way to do that? Thanks Francesco
  7. 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
  8. Hi I want to sell my 2019 designer edition Price is 1500 USD... This is a international Version with serial numbers, that work on WIN and MAC.

Transactions via PayPal. If you are interested or for details, send me a message. Regards JK
  9. Hello, Does anyone know where to find UK/London companies that recruit interior designers with VW skills? I just qualified as an interior designer and looking for work but I see that 95% of jobs (if not more) advertised on job boards etc come with AutoCad skills. I am looking for interior designer roles with VW skills so it seems I need to laser target specific companies that use the software. Any idea?

  14. In conjunction with Earth Day 2020, global design and BIM software provider, Vectorworks, Inc. celebrates their latest award. The Howard County Department of Public Works’ Bureau of Environmental Services, Recycling Division selected Vectorworks as the winner of the 2020 Business Recycling and Waste Reduction Award. This accolade recognizes local businesses for their recycling and waste reduction efforts during the 2019 calendar year. The winning submission, “Greenworks,” is an environmentally-based project presented at the company’s regular innovation discussions and focuses on methods to create a sustainable work environment. Employees from various teams and departments collaborated on the project that went into full effect a few months later. The project outlined implementing proper traditional recycling techniques and adding a new system to include recycling plastic bags and film packaging, which ultimately becomes Trex decking. Additionally, other initiatives involved purchasing utensils instead of plastic cutlery and replacing water bottles with a water filtering system. “One might expect an innovation project from a global design software company to be a technology-focused project; however, we chose to focus on sustainable ways to improve our environment,” said Janet Coppage, operations coordinator at Vectorworks and one of the employees behind the Greenworks project. “Not only are we pleased to see this initiative have a significant impact on our nearly 200 employees at our Columbia headquarters, but we also see this as an opportunity to educate families and surrounding communities for a greater reach and positive impact in our environment.” Learn more about the award-winning company, by visiting vectorworks.net.
  15. Hi i'm having some trouble matching colors in Vectorworks. Attached you can find an image that explains my problem. I imported a reference image made on https://colourco.de/ and imported the JPG image in VW. Than I gave at each circle the right color code reported on the reference. Despite the matching code, the color don't match. If I do the same thing in a software like Affinity Designer it works perfectly. Do anyone knows why? Thanks Francesco

  17. Hello, I need to add a skylight to a roof face as I'm creating an atrium and I'm having trouble on how to make flat, glass roofs. I have created a 3d symbol of a skylight and I'm now having trouble positioning the skylight to the correct place. There seems to be a gap between the dormer cut out and the symbol itself. I have tried clicking edit skylight and this also left a triangular hole on the roof. 😁
  18. Hi, I'm having trouble figuring out how to add panels of glass on a roof face. Can someone please give me step by step instructions? 🙂

  21. We are a Mac based office using vectorworks woth project sharing across the majority of our architectural projects as we have multiple users on each, and it’s been working fine. we are now looking at setting up some teams with pc’s instead (so they can also run revit), and we were wondering how the project sharing works across pc and Mac, and if anyone have had any problems with this? in effect some teams might have to do crossover work between Mac saved and pc saved vectorworks files via project sharing. any thoughts and suggestions would be helpful. many thanks kind regards anton
  22. I’m trying to connect the roof and wall components but it doesn’t seem to be working. As you can see from the image attached, the gabled roof sort of works as it is understanding where to offset the joists, sheathing and insulation (in relation to the wall) but the other roofs are not working. I’ve associated the walls to the roofs. I’ve tried manually offsetting components but this doesn’t seem efficient when there are many walls. Maybe I’m missing something but it’d be great to get some opinions. I essentially want the cladding, wall insulation and sheathing to run up to the roof finish. 19.07.31 PLAN TEST.vwx
  23. Wondering if anyone has a lead on any decent Vectorworks specific podcasts out there. So far I've only found the Novedge Podcast. I've got a long show with some headphone time coming up. Bonus points if it's Spotlight specific!
  24. Hi all! Working on a small interior project and for the first time only worked with Renderworks. Would like to share the results so far
  25. Since starting to use this program I have been having problems with the purge command. I currently am refining a .dwg I have imported into VW and having put the objects I want to keep into the correct classes, deleted the unused lines, I am now trying to purge the old classes that came in with the .dwg from the file. The file was 280Mb when I saved it just prior to purging. I started the purge command at 10.30 this morning and it is now 2.30pm. So 4 hours + is what VW thinks is appropriate to recognise the handful of unused classes etc. Before everyone says, "upload the file"; this is NOT a file related problem. This is absolutely a vectorworks problem as it has followed me through 3 full versions of VW, probably 9 Service packs, 3 New template files and every single file over 10Mb I have used. However, I know I am the only person to experience this as I only get condescending comments from tech support and there is nothing discussing purge slowness in the forums. Help?
