    window sill and glazing bar glitches

    Hmm, odd.The sill appears on the brick side same but if you pull it out of the wall the sill flips, the Settings screenshot also shows this.

    All 2D and 3D Curved edges are jagged.

    Hello Louis, Try this: Go to Tools > Options > Vectorworks Preferences > 3D and check the quality of the 3D conversion resolution Also, try to review your graphics card settings there's a thread where you can find the best settings for Nvidia graphics cards.

    I will give it a shot! Thanks Joseph for your time!

    @designosaur the other users only need to install Vectorworks, using the serial# provided by our UK office.

    window sill and glazing bar glitches

    @Cadplan Architecture, typically in the States, casements and awnings open out, hoppers open in. In my sketch above, the sill is on the brick side of the wall, the casements are opening out. Wes

    The sill is not quite right on that Wes as the lip appears to be on the opposite side of the opening casements. Could it be the case that US windows open into the building?

    Curtain Wall Tool

    @Wes Gardner I was thinking of making two separate curtain walls running parallel next to each other, I think that's gonna get me where I want to be. I understand why there is no such "make horizontals continuous" checkbox as that is not the type of thing you'd model in a typical curtain wall, but I'd certainly be an appreciated option! Thanks for you answer 🙂

    Curtain Wall Tool

    @Phileas, yep that's the way the Curtain Wall tool was programmed - to simulate how curtain walls are typically built (with the verticals running continuous and the horizontals broken by the verts...) no way I know to change that (although I have asked for a "Make Horizontals Continuous" button" Dunno if you'll get any joy from the Railing/Fence Tool?? As a workaround, you may be able to do just verticals with the Curtain Wall tool and then go back and "place" horizontally modeled objects on the wall. Wes

    window sill and glazing bar glitches

    @Cadplan Architecture, there's a file called "Window Sill test.vwx" in the post regarding sills. Hope that helps. Dunno if this is part of it but I DID set up the sill first BEFORE defining the custom sash's attributes. Wes

    @Brent.A Is is possible to post a video so I can see what you are experiencing? You can DM me if you wish.

    All 2D and 3D Curved edges are jagged.

    Hi All, i was hoping someone could help me in regards to a problem with drawing a simple circle or arc and the edge of the arc is seriously jagged. I don't think i have ever had this problem but has come to my attention in the last couple of days. When i'm in Top/plan view its fine but moving into 3d Top view or any other view the radius will go jagged, is this just normal in vectorworks? i think all my settings are correct Open GL - detail set to Very high Use Anti - Aliasing checked Navigation graphics - Good performance and compatibility 2d conversion resolution - Very high 3d conversion resolution - Very high I've also made sure my graphics card is up to date and i have Service pack 3 but it just seems weird that a simple circle in a blank document is so jagged? ive attached a screen shot of the circle and if anyone could shine some light that would be much appreciated. Thanks Louis

  16. Hi Again, I've begun taking the VW stock instruments that we use the most often and adding a lens to them for the realistic appearance of light in the fixture. That has all gone great. What's happening is that once I've created the final symbol and Converted to Instrument on the Spotlight dropdown, the data fields appear on the Shape tab, while the original stock instrument has the data on the Data tab. This in itself isn't much of a problem, but next I want to copy the data from the originals to the modified ones using either the Lighting Symbol Maintenance report, or, find a way to copy the Light Info Record from one to another (rather than typing everything out individually). My new, converted instruments are not present on this report, and I can't find a way to copy the Info Record from one to another. I've attached a VW project file to illustrate. Ideas? Thanks, Steve.

    Solar Access

    You can demonstrate it by running a Solar Animation from the Helidon object. Place the Heidon with the correct geographical location & rotation with respect to the model. Be sure you've modeled all the obstructions. View>Rendering>Open GL Options>Use Shadows View your model in 3d so you can see the relevant elevation of the apartment Select the Helidon, in the OIP run Solar Animation You can outupt a movie file and take clips from this to demonstrate

    Vectorworks very slow

    Experiencing this now with VW 19 extremely slow when using workgroup library on the server. like it is refreshing every 2 minutes. Why? i dont know. I would like my workgroup refreshed when used but not when using local files

    Curtain Wall Tool

    I'm trying to create this type of basement separation walls for a model: I thought that this was a job for the curtain wall tool, so I tried to create a wall style for this, but I have a problem I can't solve: either the horizontal or the vertical wooden planks aren't continuous. they always get interrupted by the ones going in the opposite direction. Is there a fix for this? I can't find the option for it. Do I have to make two separate curtain walls?

    Site-Protection Server

    JuanP - Yes! I am now and running with 2019. Thanks so much. The Site protection server is running on my machine, but we have some other users who will be installing and running VectorWorks on a site license. How does this work with other users, do they each install this software on their macs?

    Imported DWG files very slow in vw

    Those elements that you talk about are classes (interior architecture design) that are above the 2d symbol which is the building construction: that's how they look when I turn off the 2d symbol: And when I open the edit symbol window, the drawing gets bigger:

    Fixed Data Fields in Record Formats

    Hi Pat, How do you make records invisible? That could work although still has the issue that the data cant be updated in a central library. I have used the data attached to an object inside the smbol as a worksaround before, it works well for scheduling, it is just that the new data tag tool, (which is great and had so many uses BTW) then can't access this data as far as I can tell? I have tested out ifc too - when you change ifc data for a symbol in the resource manager it updates all instances of the symbol in the file where the symbol is located, unfortunately it doesn't push that across to symbols in referenced files as far as I can tell.

    macOS Mojave (10.14) Compatibility

    Just a reminder (to me included) that this thread is about Mojave compatibility....
  25. A full version of Twinmotion is now free to download (and keep forever). Vectorworks should definitely have a plugin/livesync for Twinmotion. A plugin is already available for Lumion, but Lumion Pro set you back 3300 $ or 1600 $ for the standard edition which includes far less content than Twinmotion. https://www.unrealengine.com/en-US/twinmotion

    Pad Modifiers disappearing

    @Mike Lamb - Glad to hear you've improved the site modeling in VW 2019. However, I don't have the possibility to upgrade (despite really wanting to), because this is the computer of the Office I'm currently working in, and my boss refuses to get the upgrade. Guess I'll have to redraw all the modifiers by hand 😞 Or, did you manage to "repair" them by opening the file in VW2019? If that's the case, could you share the repaire file so I can try and see if I can get them back?

    macOS Mojave (10.14) Compatibility

    Jeremy, You are right. I have done the same thing - made the same mistakes. So, I try to keep that in mind as I draw. For example, I start with small fillets and if they take, I increase them up to what I want. But when one side will take fillets and the other identical side won’t, I don’t know what the cause is. When Push/Pull won't work, but will when I simply change the view, there is something screwy going on. Many times joined edges are not flush when they were drawn flush. I guess an accuracy problem. PP may or may not fix it, but I have been able to use PP to pull the surface way out, and then it will properly make them flush. However, I have used PP to pull a surface out, then it quits working - wont go in or out. Over the years I have learned a number of work arounds and things to try, but it is still very frustrating to waste hours on things that should work.
