Is it possible to display window & door IDs in elevations?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know whether it's possible to display window & door ID tags, using either the native VW PIOs or WinDoor objects (preferably the the latter, actually), in elevation views? I haven't been able to find a way to do this, but for us it would be a huge benefit in generating our permit and construction drawings! Thanks,

Cheers,

Markus

Not that I know of, but I agree it would be great. I have been wishlisting this for a long time.

Up until now we'd been drawing our projects in 2D, but I'd assumed that this functionality was a given -- after all, the data is there, attached to the PIOs, and coordination between plan views and elevation views is one of the key ways in which BIM functionality would really make the chore of constructing a 3D model worthwhile... is it truly not implemented yet? Seems kinda pathetic.

Don't think so but if you are prepared to pay for it WinDoor by Ozcad does.......

It's been said many times before, but this omission again appears to show that NV don't have enough practising architects on their staff or in their beta programme. You can't put a window in an elevation without a reference so how come we have to tell NV this in 2012?

But when you render it in Hidden line (my elevations) all i get is the circle around the window ID and not the text itself.

Unless there is a setting that i am missing?

Ian, that is a bug...

Guess i would need to upgrade to 2012 for that to be fixed.

Or 2013 which is just around the corner.

Not on Section Viewports it doesn't. Because Section Viewports in v2012 don't support planar objects. Joke.

It costs 100 Aussie dollars....it ships with the Aussie version but needs to be bought separately for international users and I seem to recall someone stating it is not possible for US user to purchase it?!

There are mainly only positive things to say about WinDoor including excellent support, and instantaneous bug fixing and wish list implementation (within limits), (remember though there is a time-zone lag :) ).

The only thing that is slightly worse than the native tool are the lack of many settings in the OIP, meaning quick editing of numerous objects simultaneously is not so good, (there are however other ways of changing settings on multiple objects).

WINDOOR can most definitely be purchased in the US. I have my own older version and I am even in the wilds of Montana.

It is not possible for VW US version licence holders residing in Australia to purchase Windoor.

What sense does that make?

What is the rationale there?

Not wanting to deny the boys at Ozcad a living, but it seems that I'm cornered in regard to Windoor. Which is why I'm probably going to ditch VW.

Ozcad, care to comment on this?

Kizza, if you have the Australian version of Designer then you will have Windoor so how are you cornered?

So they refuse to let people buy their product?

I don't think not selling to US users in Australia is what they meant.

I don't have an Aussie version, I have a US version.

OK, so you have a US version.

You call up Ozcad and say, "I want to buy your product."

And they says, "no thanks, we don't want to sell to you because you live here?"

Doesn't anyone else think this is weird business?

I would need to upgrade to the Australian version of VW to get Windoor, is the official word.

Question is, What if I don't want to upgrade to 2013? What if I can't afford to do so? So based purely on my geographical location, I am presently unable to expand on VW's window and door capability by purchasing WinDoor.
