Hidden Line crashing VW?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Ever since I added the RW module to my vectorworks I haven't been able to render in hidden line. I just get the beach ball and nothing happens, until I force quit and re-open. I've been doing Artistic RW as a workaround, but it's not quite the same.

When you added Renderworks, did they have you perform a full install and reinstall with the new serial number? This is what I recommend doing.

It is possible to simply add the new serial number, but I find a reinstall to be much more reliable.

In the past I had lots of problems with hidden line renders, but hardly with other types of renders. The models where I tried to use it were relatively large with quite a few objects covering each other so that did contribute to it, but I just couldn't get it to work beyond really simple 3D models at the time.

It is better in 2016 though, assuming you have that version.

Is your model a relatively simple one or a complex one?
