I see nothing about incorporating Julian’s Windoor objects? You guys forget that part?

@Kevin KYou will be able to add WinDoor via Install Partners Product command under the Help menu ( available for all Vectorworks 2022 Design Series products). 

You can also find a learning path in the University https://www.vectorworks.net/windoor-tutorial

Andrew, how goes it? 🙂

Well…..since you asked.  I am a little put off at the moment, for several reasons.

First off, that I would need to “ have a conversation” with someone at the company before I could download the trial version. I read that and my jaw hit the floor. As you may recall I did not upgrade to 2021 because of all the existing items in the program that needed some attention and fixing, which did not get that attention. Especially, among other things, my all time favorite complaint, that they cannot ever seem to address the issue where a wood grain texture around door and window trim can ludicrously go in one direction only….which would only happen on Earth 2. For a guy like me who does a lot of photo realistic rendering, that is the death knell.

Also, based upon what Juan P mentioned to me about the Windoor items only being available in the Design Series, and apparently not offered to anyone who just wants VW architect….seems like a really bad decision. I really am not affected, as I already have and use Windoor exclusively. I  never bother using the native VW door and window tools…..ever.

 

So…..I have an intuitive feeling that there will exist the same old issues of not fixing things that are still ‘broken’. But, I cannot qualify that because I need to “have that conversation” with a rep before I can download the trial version to have a little test drive.  
I am only one tiny voice…..why would they listen or care about my opinions.  🙂

So…..aren’t you glad you asked, Andrew 🙂

I believe that Vw Architect is one of the Design Series products (along with Spotlight and Landmark) — so Windoor would be available to anyone with one of those 2022 Vw products (or the Design Suite which has all of the Design Series packages). Design Series -vs- Design Suite.

I can confirm. Windoor is available to be installed through the partner browser for users of Vectorworks Architect, Vectorworks Landmark, Vectorworks Spotlight or Vectorworks Design Suite (formerly Vectorworks Designer).

Hi,

 

thnx for the new VW 2022.

 

I have to wait until end of october, before we, here in Germany get the new localized version.

 

I have one question, maybe someone could investigate for me.

 

In VW 2022 we got a enhanced wall tool with new wrappings.

Got we also formulas (area, length, volume, material, separatable into horizontal an vertical wrappings

because often the horizontal wrapping on the bottom inside/outside is made of different material)

to calculate the data of the wrappings in tablesheets?

 

I mean, are the wrappings only for a better visual representation, or is it more of a whole bim package?

 

Greeting and thnx in advance!

Tobi from Germany

I'm excited to have Windoor as it does so much more but boy it's a little harder to get my head around some of the details.  Not too intuitive I find.


Searching ‘windoor’ on the Vw University does not bring up any results  — but this link posted by @JuanP is of a training course for WinDoor:

https://university.vectorworks.net/local/programview/index.php?id=17

 

Additionally, OzCAD (WinDoor’s deveopler) still has an extensive bunch of older WinDoor training videos on their website and YouTube channel.

I just searched ‘windoor’ on the Vw University and there are no videos, so until Vw starts posting some of their own training videos for WinDoor, OzCAD (WinDoor’s deveopler) still has an extensive bunch of WinDoor training videos on their website and YouTube channel.

There is this on the University:

Not that I've looked at it yet. I imagine it's the OzCAD videos repackaged

 

This is from @JuanP post above

Can anyone test if VW2022 has the possibility to paint a part of a face by splitting it with a line for example? Or do we have to push/pull before VW recognize it as a separate paintable face? Would make adding details to a mass model easier.

Not currently possible, as far as I'm aware.

 

[Edit: clarification - it's not possible if you're looking for the two parts to remain co-planar, as Vectorworks will just re-merge them. But aside from that, you definitely CAN push/pull a face that's been split with a line/polyline, either immediately after drawing the line, or by using the third mode of the push/pull tool, and then texture them separately]
