VW 2020 Suggestions

Question

As a Residential House Designer & Estimator,  having the tools listed below would greatly improve productivity.

 

Feel free to add to the list.

 

Wall Definitions

1. Option for corner boards, quoins, etc..  Currently we must create these.

2. Wall components with vertical and horizontal offsets

 

Roofs / Rafters

1. Options for shadow board(s)

2. Options for Gable end returns, Hip, Full Hip with ability to set length and roof pitch.  Currently we must create these

 

Openings

1. Header options; size, material, vertical location, placement in relation to wall depth.

Jack studs, sill plate(s). Currently no option in settings.

2. Moulding profiles library to change trim on the fly and update.

Great for client presentations.

 

Stair Rails

1. Library of rail profiles to choose from and have the railing update.

Currently need to create extrude along  path, profile, then do the operation.

 

Cabinets

1. Auto countertop cutout for sinks.

Maybe has been corrected as I just upgraded to VW 2019.

 

Worksheets

1. Should already have "templates" for takeoff purposes.

Think Wall Framer tool worksheets.  I am customizing for my needs.

I'm going to add a request for Gambrel Roof. This has to be modelled and generally can't be produced satisfactorily with either the Roof tool or with a Roof Face.

Make sure these go in as separate wishlist requests in the future. Pile-on/large lists like this as single posts become large talking points on the forum but do not translate well into the wishlist tracker.
