Details vs. Viewports

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I have used Vectorworks for a while, however i still can't seem to wrap my head around a few Vworks functions. Is there a way to create a design layer viewport and convert it to polygons like the section viewport? The reason why i want to use design layer viewports is that because i don't use 3d capabilities of vectorworks, instead I draw out whole building sections in 2d and just reference the connections or required details via the main section cut through design layer viewports which i then annotate differently. That way if i need to change something all i need to change is one detail section. Now I have a problem - I need to export to autocad and when my design layer viewports export as to dwg the details do not remain, only the main section cut does. Is there a way i would be able to go around this problem?
