Good day! When trying to transfer a project from vectorworks 2022 to L8 using MVR, the geometry of some elements is transferred with errors. For example, a TV set made using TV Tool is transferred normally, but if you add a stand to it, then only the screen texture and stand are transferred from the TV, the TV itself is not visible in the document. But if we remove the stand, then the TV is exported normally, with the body and textures.

If we try to import the MVR file back into VectorWorks, we will get the same result, only the TV screen will be visible. Unfortunately there will be no body.

Please advise how to fix this problem.

It looks like it's a problem with the importer in both Vectorworks and L8.

I did a quick test and the geometry for the TV is being exported as a symbol in the MVR.

The import into Vectorworks creates the symbol but it is not placed in the document.


I'm not sure how L8 handles nested symbols.


We will investigate the issue in Vectorworks.
