Vectorworks 2010

Recommended Posts

Why then advertise that it will be implemented in vw2010?

I am feeling the same, but understand the why at this time. To much to implement at one time with the resources at hand.

Lots of things in vw seem to be broken. After showing me this, just adds to that list.

Extrude a circle. Duplicate array it 100 times vertically & horizontally. Now add those 10000 extrusions to make a solid. Track your task manager. Tell me how many cores are being used?

Hopefully someone from NNA can weigh in here but from what I can tell, on the Mac, Vectorworks is not 64bit under Snow Leopard or uses Multiprocessors except for Renderworks operations. The only other processor being used besides one of the cores is the Graphic Chip to aid with Screen draws and the highlighting.

....The integration of Landmark and Architect is really cool. ....

So Architect and Landmark now come as one package? or is this just saying that some of the landmark features now are part of Architect?

Architect and Landmark are still separate packages. I think Barrie was referring to the integration within each of the two products. Landmark does have one notable addition from Architect though with Walls Styles being included in it.

If Landmark can have wallstyles, why can't those of us with Architect have the ability to import shapefiles in VW2010? C'mon.

Dash styles are greatly improved:

  • Dash style naming.
  • Provision for up to 128 dash styles.
  • Imported dash styles are now added to the dash style list. They no longer overwrite the existing dash styles.

Has the sloping sill issue been sorted out? Does it cut out walls as they should and then, do they reflect properly in the Live Section?

Speaking of Live Sections, can we now edit objects in Live Sections (or elevation viewports for that matter) eg. moving windows and doors around as we would on plan view? (just like ArchiCAD)

Thanks,

Yes, and No.

I don't know what you're talking about but the window sills have still not been repaired in vw2010. This is one pathetic release.

Vectorworks 2010 has been shipping in the UK for some time, just not the upgrades which are mostly still marked as 'due soon'.

I've had my upgrade from 09 -10 for a few weeks now

Is there a way to insert letters in the dash styles, ie. "w" for water "san" for sewer, "G" for gas, etc.. this would be a real improvement.

That's lucky as all 2010 upgrade products are listed as being out of stock.

Hi Jonathan,

I was in Napier a few years back. Wonderful Art Deco town. I was in New Zealand- designed news for TV3 and the first set for Campbell Live. But I'm off topic.

Did use VW, though.

Jonathan,

I am not familar with this tool, being several versions behind.

Perhaps you can demonstrate its use when our CT users group has a live hook-up with you later this month, not sure of the date.

Cheers,

Fred

I've watched the video on texture mapping improvements for Renderworks... Anybody know if mapping on curved surfaces has been improved? I find that mapping an image on a curved banner is a nightmare... just curious if this was an improvement?

In regards to 3D Dimensioning - with the new Unified 2d/3d view, would I be able to dimension an object in elevation, and then have the dimension stay correctly positioned as I dimension the plan, then viewing as an Isometric, thus giving basically the 3d dimensioning? Basically, do the measurements stay in Plan only plane, or do they work with the new unified views?

Also, anyone have a grasp on what the "actual" multi core capabilities are? VW2009 says it's multi core, but it's never used more than one core for me... even renderworks... Just wondered if VW2010 actually uses multi cores for anything.

I don't know about the mapping. I just use C4D.

3D Dimensions are not possible. Maybe it will come out with 2011 (but don't hold your breathe) and then NNA with market 2011 like it is some sort of ground breaking technology when in fact AutoCAD had it since the beginning.

NNA lies. No way is vw multi-core. Period. 'Parts' of renderworks maybe multi-core though.

HTH,
