Hi guys! I'm just learning vectorworks, and I don't undestand how to use the tool for the lift/elevator. I mean I have an eight-storey building and I'd like access to the cabin repeated level by level. I can't find enough tutorials on the subject to figure it out. I hope I've made myself clear and thank you in advance if someone can help me.

Hi Angelica, all you can do with the lift/elevator tool is to 1) place and set your elevator on one floor (inserting it into a wall) 2) create an elevator style, if needed (VW2020 only) 3) copy-paste it on each floor.


Besides creating an opening when inserted in a wall, there is no other smart behavior (e.g. slab modifiers, top and bottom, etc) using the the elevator tool, which is basically a 2d/3d parametric symbol.
