  1. Hi, So, a couple of thoughts: 1. If I combine all walls, slabs, pillars and stuff to one piece of combined solid, will this make a lighter file? 2. If so, how do I do this? I want to make one piece of solid made out of all the walls and slabs I've created. 3. Is this even a good idea? I'm making an arena, so there's gonna be a lot of stuff in the final file, so it needs to be lightweight and easy to understand. Thanks!

    wall caps

    I am having issues with wall end caps, I tried adjusting with allotting I know and I can't figure out what is wrong. I have included image of what is happening, I can connect wall without a problem. The image shows 3 images of the same wall type with exactly the same settings. I color coded different layers of the wall to better see what is happening. Additionally it looks like there are some inconsistencies for no reason - I used end cap tool exactly the same way on all of them. The blue and red are outer and inner finishes, the line thickness is set to thin, but shows as thick, I solved the problem by setting line thickness to NONE, but why is this happening?
  3. I am setting up more elaborate wall types. Similar to Batt insulation I am using tiles for various items, one thing I unable to control is the scaling, for example if I have a stud 2x4 and I have a tile set with actual stud dimensions it shows scaled in the wall, it seems like 6" width fills the wall regardless of the wall thickness anything else is off. Is there a way to control that?
  4. Can someone remind me of the quick command to make a hole in a wall in 3D instead of using Subtract Solids. I have the answer for anyone who needs to know. Ensure the AUTOMATIC PLANE is on. Push/pull and use hold down ALT, click enter. Thanks,
  5. HI, I can't seem to apply a class (image) to a wall. I have no issue applying a solid colour but for some reason If I need to apply an image this does not work and defaults back to a colour. The wall is classed but I have no idea where the yellow comes from. I can render a wall with whatever image but when I apply class texture this does not work, even though the class is set (as it works with any color fills but not image fills). Photo attached. Anyone has any idea as this must be a simple thing which I did not grasp! Thank you,
  6. Hi all. This viewport is rendered background=unshaded polygon. Has anyone experienced the unwanted diagonal lines, indicated in green, attched? Seem to be associated with a re-shaped wall....any comments welcome. Rendering in opengl solves the problem. (I used unshaded polygon because it renders two extrudes semi-transparent, the ones showing existing gables of this extended house.) 200511 GA Tech 1.pdf
  7. Can you put symbols or PIO's in just one (or specified) components of a wall? e.g. in the attached image, I'd like to insert a column into the CMU blockwork component in the middle of the wall - like column 'C' which is not actually inserted, but 'on top' of the wall in 2D. The only insert options I find are in the Object Info palette : 'Centre line' (column A) and 'Left edge' or 'Right Edge' (Column B), both of which are inserted / offset relative to the entire wall, and not the preferred wall component, and create a hole in all the wall components... Am I missing something? Thanks, hope all are keeping well in these strange times, and best wishes to you and your families. S
  8. Hi All, Is anyone aware of a quick, clear and easy way to display wall orientation on drawings? We have a set of about 20 GA plans, walls drawn using the wall tool and correctly set up with wall styles. The Contractor has asked us to show clearly on our plans which orientation the walls are in (for instance; a wall which looks in plan identical on both sides, but one side is moisture resistant plasterboard and the other is not). Any tips or workarounds also appreciated, anything that saves us going around and manually drawing a mark on the side of ever wall.. Thanks! A
  9. Does anyone know of any good tutorials for creating a wall sconces or pendant light fixtures that renders properly? Thank you.
  10. Hi, I'm trying to create some simple massing models with gable ends. I have created a custom roof by editing the massing model. With the 'fit walls to roof' command unavailable, I have chosen the option to show the gable wall in the roof in the roof design preferences. This seems to have a set back from the wall and create a ledge. There doesn't't appear to be a way of setting the massing model wall thickness and when changing the gable wall thickness, it only sets the wall further back into the roof leaving the ledge. When looking straight on at the model, there also seems to be a physical gap between the top of the massing model wall and the gable wall. If anyone can shed any light on this, it would be much appreciated. James
  11. Hi, I attach a wall that has a wall feature attached to it. The wall has two components, one of the components (the brick cladding), has an offset relative to the wall of - 50 cm I'd like the wrapping of the feature component be done by the brick cladding but at the correct height. Is this possible? I tag @Alan Woodwell and @Matt Panzer as you both seem to know very well the wall tools. I would appreciate very much a hand!! Wall Projection and Component Wrap.vwx
  12. Hi, I've been trying to solve this for a while now but i can't. Maybe someone can give me a hand. When I activate the caps of my wall, it caps both components with black. I'd Like the grey component to be also capped with grey. Thanks in advance
  13. The Wall Data Cost Index System and Cost Index Code are mapped to ifc fields Classification.Name and Classification.Item Reference respectively. They don't import into Solibri - at least I can't find them in Solibri info palette Classification tab where I would expect to find them. Am I missing something here?
  14. 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.

  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. 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?
  24. 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
  25. 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!
