Recommended Posts

Is it possible to make a double door with one leave bigger then the other in VW2010?

I think you'll find only developers of dedicated building modellers?such as ArchiCAD and Revit?think of this kind of thing for their users. Vectorworks is very flexible though, you can spend fifty times the amount of time modelling your own hybrid symbol or symbol geometry instead.

What rubbish

Yeah sure ? that is why with ArchiCAD as an example relies on this third party developer

...or you can spend your money adding on what should be core functionality.

Just like ArchiCAD

Do you have a copy of ArchiCAD Ozzie? Admittedly their interface is a bit rubbish and you have to dig a little deep but you don't need an addon for uneven double doors.

It needs to be fixed in VW. Shouldn't be too hard - windows can handle various sash width why not door panel widths? Even Complex doors are constrained to equal widths!

In the meantime, it's possible to solve the issue by ungrouping the door and adjusting the panel widths to suit.

I think it needs more than that. If NNA are serious about people using VW for production information in 3D it needs for us not to have to ask for these sorts of things.

Or the add-on comes with the program... ;).

Perhaps that's the problem for NNA, Windoor is an excellent plug-in, if they improve their own tool, Ozcad takes the ....however leave out a door/window tool, nobody buys your program.....perhaps NNA should get a contract with Ozcad, add 100 bucks to VW price and include it in the package = everybody happy!

No, there's no addon required for uneven doors in ArchiCAD (if that's what you mean).

...sorry, I mean I think it actually is a plug-in developed by a 3rd party, but is included as an integral part of the program when you buy ArchiCAD.....
