Vision Orientation Issue

Recommended Posts

Hello All,


I hope you can help me with an issue.


I have 12 x GLP X4 bar 20's in my plot 6 x 2 as per the first screen shot from VW. when I export in ESC or MVR the bars are as screenshot 2 & 3.

when I rotate on the Y or the Z they rotate as screen shot 4. this image has 6 bars with the Y at 90 degree and 6 with the Z at 90 Degree.

Any idea how I can rotate them so they face forward?


Thank you all in advance for whatever help you can give.

Go to the edit menu and use the rotate 3D command (, note the Y axis is vertical in Vision).

Both the rotate and move in 3D commands will work with group selected fixtures

Can we add this to the list of people that have issues with the orientation of fixtures in Vectorworks, compared to how they show up in Vision?
