  1. Hello All, Every time I select a single wall object, I get eternal rainbow wheel / application not responding and I have to force quit. If I marquee-select two or more walls, it's fine. Or if I marquee-select one wall and any other object, it's fine. But click-selecting one individual wall crashes me every time, no matter the file (even the extremely simple file uploaded below). -Yesterday I un-installed and re-installed VWX 2019 (so Vectorworks is up to date, with all service packs installed) -Mojave is up to date (osx 10.14.2, see attached system info) I understand that most of the bugs are Apple bugs and not VWX bugs. But even after this upgrade yesterday, I'm still having the same problem. And I'm not seeing any threads on here discussing it. Any ideas? Thanks, Brandon VWX test file.vwx iMac - B.

  2. Hi, Would be great if the Pillar tool could accept left and right textures. I think the Pillar tool is a superior tool when compared to the wall projection tool. The projection tool always causes issues when the projection reaches the ends of walls. The Pillar tool works great always. You can join walls from everywhere and it works. Maybe even rename the Pillar tool to Irregular Wall or something like that because thats the way it works best.

    Wall clipping to roof not working

    Working on a 1 1/2 storey house - some walls clipped to the underside of the roof and others will not, no matter what I seem to try. there are the main peaked roofs with gable ends and windows, which I created as walls with windows, and there are peaked and shed dormers as well, which I also did the same way. (mainly because I am not that proficient). The upper corners of the walls stick out past the roof, and in the gables there is a gap above the wall to the top underside of the peak. I can't even fake a presentation with 2D annotations, without a ton of work. I have a feeling it's in the wall or roof settings but ??? I work with layer wall heights and layer elevations, etc and not stories. any help would be greatly appreciated thanks. roof wall clipping problem.pdf
  4. Hi there, in Vectorworks fundamentals 2019 architecture objects like walls, roofs... are not included anymore. I wonder how vectorscripts will behave that contain architectural procedures. Will such scripts run with a fundamentals version anymore? If yes, will such scripts run in the future? Thanks so far
  5. Hi All, It would be useful if it was much clearer which side of a wall is inside/outside/left/right. Whenever replacing a wall with a new wall style for instance, I've been adopting the trial an error approach. I know the wall when selected shows a tiny arrow on one end, but often this is obscured or out of view. Also (more importantly), this is not displayed if you have more than one piece of wall selected. So the typical workflow of selecting a bunch of walls to update/replace, guess a side to align, get it wrong, undo, redo, select opposite side align. Whilst I'm on it, a marker showing 'inside' and 'outside' of window objects when selected would also be handy.
  6. Hello everyone, I'm just trying to set a cup of wall/roof details. I have 2 questions 1) between roof and wall components VW allows us to set the connection between a specified roof component and a part of a wall. But sometimes I need to set a roof component between a specified wall component not detectable with the wall style components options. In fact, if I have more than 3 wall components (internal, main component, external) I can't select a specific option. 2) if I need to decide the visualization order of component inside a wall or a roof, how can I do this? Thank you and a good work Z Componenti_tetto.vwx

    Slab Line Visibility Issue

    Hey Guys, I'm having issues with my section viewport where a line from the a slab object is showing through a wall. In the attached images, I've circled the three instances where a line appears where it should not. I have tried moving the slab far beyond the wall, but the line still displays. The line disappears when I delete the slab object and update the viewport. The strange thing is, when I pull the clip cube away from the building for an elevation, the lines disappear. Let me know what you guys think the issue is. Thanks, Raymond
  8. Specifically in Italy and in rest of Europe is a very import issue to have thickness wall control. Every architect that comes from 2D draw and need to improvement the workflow switching to BIM ask us: "how can I create a variable thickness wall?". How about add this improvement to next vectorworks versions? Thanks

    Multiple fills

    Hi, I have this single layer wall (100 mm). The wall has its color, fill etc. attributes from a class. In this class, I have drawn my own tile, as I use as the fill. This works great when I do a section view in the wall and looking from the front. So far so good. But now I want to have a section view looking from the top, and in this section I dont want the same fill in the wall. Is there a way to have 2 different fills for a wall, maybe controlled by two different classes or maybe something else.
  10. Hi, Is it possible to give a wall different colors/textures on the same component? I have a 10 meter long wall, that i like to give 3 different colors. the first 2 meter in red, 2 m eter in green and 6 m in blue. Is this possible on the same wall?
  11. Hi, I have a question regarding wall stacking. (I am new to vectorworks, so maybe is it stupid) I have this two walls on top of eat other. The walls has two different wall styles and are on two different layers. The top layer has a elevation, that matches the height of the lower wall. The question is, when i edit the value of the top wall length, it changes to the correct length. But if I drag in the wall to get it longer, it removes the lower wall? So I can change the upper walls length by value, but not by dragging. How can this be, and what can I do to avoid this? See my attached test file Test_.vwx
  12. Would be great if one could also see the wall start mark when looking at a wall in axonometric or perspective views, not only in TOP/PLAN view. Look at the images attached, you can only see the wall start mark in the TOP/PLAN view... Hope this gets implemented soon!
  13. I use a 4" high outer component to a wall as a base which I show in 3D but not in 2D using class visibility. When I turn on the "hide details" toggle in 2D the wall does not respect the width of the wall with the base class turned off. I suspect this is by design as the graphic is likely for the entire wall but it is not expected.

  15. It would be nice that when one uses Fit Walls to Objects beneath a staircase the wall properly follows the bottom of the staircase. The only way to model this properly is to create a wall recess or wall projection. You can see better what I mean in the screenshot. The wall "fits" with it's center but the top of the wall does not fit parallel to the bottom of the staircase.
  16. Please, Vectorworks, how this option is still missing, when you use the Exterior Wall detail option in the windows It just works in Top/Plan view But when you switch to Perspective we have this, why?

    Tiles

    Hi there, What is the best way to apply tiles on wall? Make a renderworks texture and apply it on the wall? I mean if I do that, then tiles will be all over wall (and I would like to have tiles only in bathroom). Or should I make a plane, extrude it, and then apply it ( attached print screen ). I would appreciate your help. And if you had any good links to tutorials, please share with me. Thanks a lot for help, good guys! Alice
  18. It may very useful to be able to handle the thickness and inclination of the walls and its component freely. We European users feel very much the need to have more freedom in the drawing of the walls.
  19. Hello everyone, if i need to project correctly a wood house, actually i can't.. off course i would like to see all the components, in 3 dimension etc. Could be enough if it were possibile to set every single component of the wall like a frame or a panel. We could have 3 choices: standard wall, courtain wall and.. Superwall! In a superwall every component can be set like a frame or panel, and so the user can create correctly a complete house structure all made in wood. Sounds it good? Bye!

    Windows depth within recessed wall

    I am using series of windows in a recessed wall. I was hoping it to show adjust depth of windows after achieving wall recessed. In plan I still see previous depth of the windows that was showing before wall recessed . Does somebody know how to adjust window depths according to new recessed wall? Thanks!

    Curtain Walling Hinger Marker

    Hi there, Does anyone know if there is a way of making hinger markers for curtain walling to show up in an elevation viewport without having to draw them on in annotations? Thanks!
  22. Hi all, When two identical symbols with the same record format are inserted in a wall, this record format can´t be edited, but if the symbols are not in a wall then the record format can be edited. I´m on Win10 and VW 2017SP3 Cheers, Juan
  23. Hi all, Using tiles inside the walls give the wrong result when exported to Autocad. Here is how it looks in VW 2017: How it looks in ACAD: Here is the VW 2017 file: TilesToAcad.vwx Cheers, Juan
  24. As we use complex Styled Walls with multiple Components and individual Top/Bottom Height Level assignments per Components, by Story Levels beside an overall Wall Insertion height we most times (98%) really want to activate "Replace Height" Adjustments for "ALL" Styled Walls after changing their Style. (Especially if your Components assignments are set to have manual distances from Levels) However in rare cases we need just a few or only one Wall of that same Wall Type in a different environment with a different Height setting. In that case you either have too : - care each time and never activate height adaption after changing your Style again - create another additional Wall Style Duplicate just because of a different height setting. So I wish that : 1. the "Replace Height" check box disappears from the Style change confirmation dialog completely (always activated) 2. There will be a "Lock Custom Height Changes" checkbox in OIP, for Stylized Walls, above the Height Editing Options, that will prevent from losing any of that Custom Height Settings of that Wall on Object Level in any case (Which is the "overall" Wall Height only) 3. While keeping the ability to adapt to changes of the individual Component Level Height settings of the Style. That would save me from tons of redundant extra Wall Style Duplicates AND from recurrently, accidentally and unnoticeably destroying my few Special Walls

    Wave/Ondulated wall. Which tools?

    Hello! I need to do a "waved" wall for a garden (45cm height and 45cm width. The wave goes right and left and ALSO up and down at specific points. The shape is almost a 4 leaf clover. With the wall tool it is easy to do the Right and Left waves, but when I do Up and Down the waves are not round and have Edges. I attach a screenshot of an attempt with NURBS. Very messy. Im out of ideas about how to do this wall round and clean. Thank you in advance!!
