VW 2011 - Huge 3D issues

Recommended Posts

Does anyone else have issues when modeling in 3D? For me objects seem to have a mind of there own. Moving in planes that do not direct them in (i.e moving an object in plan by click and dragging. When I change my view the object has also moved in other planes!)

The only way I can stop this is by nudging the object but this takes forever! This has never happened to me and I've used every version of Vectorworks from v9.

My experience with 2011 has be awful to date that his issue is costing me so much valuable time on projects.

VW 2011 has a layer plane mode and a screen plane mode.

If you want to move an object in plan view (X & Y) make sure that screen plane is selected from the drop down menu at the top of the screen.

You can move things in an isometric view and snap to 3D points by using the Layer Plane mode.
