    (section)viewports not rendering 2d items

    Thanks for the file, Frank! I exported the file back to VW 2018 and tested from there to 2020. The viewports displayed on 2018 SP6 and 2019 SP5 correctly. However, I did find another file showing issues in 2019 SP5 as well. I do see the problem with your file in 2020. A bug has already been submitted on this (VB-160845). I attached your file with some notes that may help in getting this fixed sooner. Sorry I don't have an immediate solution for you but hopefully this will get addressed soon. Best, Matt
  3. Hello @Amorphous - Julian, I tried following your steps from the video and was not able to reproduce the crash. Do you happen to have a crash log from it? Best Regards, Nikolay Zhelyazkov

    Site Model Display Units

    Ahhh, yes at this time if you are working in MM you would have to then change to Meters for the correct units. I will add this as an enhancement!

    Timber Cladding

    @fabrica Thanks for this! although im not 100% how to set this up as a new texture. Is there a guide?
  7. And I also need to source the Braceworks add-on. If we go down the NEW route, can anyone recommend a re-seller, have had a good experience/deal with a particular company? thanks!

    you can use textures from somewhere like cgtextures? link https://www.textures.com/download/3dscans0446/133740 might be easier than than modelling each board!

    VW 2019 SP5.2 Install crashing

    @Steve Riddle Uninstall Vectorworks and then reinstall using any of the following links: https://release.vectorworks.net/latest/Vectorworks/2019-NNA-eng-win https://release.vectorworks.net/latest/Vectorworks/2019-NNA-eng-mac then if the problem persists contact your local technical support.

    Landmark and site modeling

    Hi Andy 1. No, not normal to have to Force Select, but if your modifiers are on the same layer as your site model, the cursor can have a hard time deciding what it is that you want to select. For that reason, I always put my modifiers on different design layers and ensure that my model is set to be updated by either visible layers only, or a set of specific layers (in site model settings). 2. Yes - try Pad with Retaining Edge. Then use Send to Surface to send the retaining edge to the existing surface. 3. Nice idea.

    VW 2019 SP5.2 Install crashing

    While updating from SP4 to SP 5.2 the installer stops midway through the process, it says and unknown error has occurred and contact technical support. How do I get this to update as having bugs with SP4 in Catalina ?

    Bridle tool problem

    Hopefully a fix soon. There is a similar manifestation of this problem I think in the below. I am trying to draw a 2 point bridle from two structural members to be in line with the truss. The bridle always draws at a slight angle: Maybe this is something I am doing wrong?

    Bridle tool problem

    This issue has been passed onto the Braceworks team and is being worked on.

    Extrude VW2019 vs. VW 2020

    I've just gone ahead and done a fresh download of SP1 Build 512839 from my service select- and yes, this line/extrude issue is in there for sure. So it looks like there's a regression from previous versions that worked ok. Let's hope we see the next SP very very soon.

    Timber Cladding

    What is the best way to achieve a timber cladding finish? it seems you cant get a prominent plank bump and a wood texture at the same time i might have to manually cladding the building in 3D rectangles!

    Extrude VW2019 vs. VW 2020

    hope they will get released soon! We use that kind of extrude a lot!

    Extrude VW2019 vs. VW 2020

    I've just checked it across a few different builds of VW, and it is a problem on some of the older versions.... Greyed out Fill, only an outline. So keep an eye out for latest SP, or download the next one as soon as you can.
  19. Hello, I have a problem that has bothered me for several years now and I wanted to know if you had a solution for me. I use two screens with a Nvidia Quadro card. One for drawing, the other for tool palettes, resource managers and layers explorer. At each standby of the screens, the palettes of the secondary screen are found on the main screen and I have to put them back on the second screen. In the long run it's really boring and it takes time every time. If you have the solution, I'm interested. Looking forward to your return. Cordially. Edgar RAMEL

    Landmark and site modeling

    @Tamsin Slatter Hey, Coupla questions... Is it normal that i need to "force select" anything related to my site model? eg roads, site modifiers (all types) etc..? Is there a simple way to cut pad into a slope with vertical cut faces without disturbing the surrounding gradients? as is commonly required for footings and basements. So far I have experimented with two very clunky work around's. use a two pads, one above and one below the cut face (slightly offset). use a pad with minimally offset grade limiter Why not have an option to use a wall or slab to control a site model? this would be intuitive to use, reflecting real world construction and smooth out workflow when making edits? Appreciate your thoughts Cheers, Andy

    Extrude VW2019 vs. VW 2020

    @RussU : That looks incredible,- I'm doing exactly the same steps in VW2020 Spotlight and as soon as the line is extruded the fill button in the attributes palette gets deactivated. This only with extrudes from lines, - polygons and rectangles work as usual. So VW2020 Designer is not affected with this bug ????

    Bridle tool problem

    It is pretty common tor bridle off a beam or house points parallel to a truss if say you need to distribute your load or avoid HVAC/lower steel work. This would seem to be a pretty big over-site. And if the house points tool doesn't do parallel two leg bridles and you cannot attach a single hoist to it in a striaght drop then what on earth is it for?

    Hi RussU, I guess it's a problem of installation at this point... are you using the 2020 version? thx M

    Notes Manager VW2020

    @leecalisti Hello, If you tried to add only a Section it will disappear. You need to add at least one note to this section. Please record a short video with steps to reproduce. What VW version do you use?

    (section)viewports not rendering 2d items

    Hello Matt (and others), attached a test with a 'clean' VW2020 file: same results: 2d elements don't display properly in section-viewports. I also include the VW2020 file; maybe I'm just doing something very obvious wrong. (I hope...) Frank test 2020.vwx
