InteriorCAD - notching a part

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

@Stephan Moenninghoff - can you tell me how to notch this partition? I have a sink going here and want to show the cutout.

 

Also - how is the InteriorCAD manual coming along? I asked some time ago and I think you said it was not far away. There is a lot of functionality within InteriorCAD that I know I'm not using - a manual would be ideal. Or a lot of tutorial videos. I see the marketing videos, and they look great, but they don't show anything in enough detail to be useful.

 

Thanks

Of course I can tell you: use a Contour 3D object. Please make sure you have ticked the "3D Details" checkbox in the Object Info Palette of the cabinet object. The notch will not show up otherwise.

You can skip the "convert to polygons"-part if you're not bothered about CNC output. I do that to get rid of the extra side. It is not required.

Yes, the tutorial on the Vectorworks University. Glad you mention it. It is done: https://university.vectorworks.net/course/index.php?search=interiorcad-basic-workflow-2021. Enjoy!

We have also updated the interiorcad manual: https://conf.extragroup.de:8443/im/latest

Thanks, Stephan. I have been working through the University videos, very helpful. But back to the contour for the gable notching, why do I see the width of the contour in my viewport? What does the width of the contour refer to, and how to I view just the cutout, not the width of the contour as well?

Ok, you need to turn off the contour class in the viewport. We can hide the contour in openGL and wireframe (we have assigned it a zero line thickness and a texture with 100% transparency so it does not show up but you can still select it) but not in hidden line.
