Welcome.


This topic http://forum.cad.info.pl/topic/815-co-warto-udoskonali%C4%87-w-zwcad-architecture/

in polish language "How improve ZWCAD ARCHITECTURE+" is written in posts ("blog form"), where I show problems (errors), proposals of new functions. Some graphics are in english from cloud server copy.com.

This topic shows architectural rules in POLAND (EU) and how to use ZWCAD ARCHITECTURE+
to draw according to this rules.

To watch pictures need registering in http://forum.cad.info.pl/

Is possible new funcionality called: UNIVERSAL_3D_BIM_PROFILE ?


Types of shapes according to materials: metal, reinfocement, wood

hi Martin_S, nice to meet you. Our technical support engineer Eric have talked with you about ZWCAD Architecture in Poland. You gave us many valuable suggestions. Thank you very much. ZWCAD Architecture is new to the market, we need user's feedback from local region.
For the time being, we focus on improving current functions and local language version. But our product manager will consider your advice in future version, don't hesitate to post your suggestions, they are useful for us.

One good news, ZWCAD Architecture 2014 Beta (English) will be released soon, it base on ZWCAD+ 2014.

During creating Rounded Tubes or Steel Shapes as BIM Columns SLAB and SPECIAL-SHAPED COLUMN cause errors rounded objects.

Standard Column dont dispalys properly rounded shapes. Rounded shape is Square in 3D View. Rounded shape is correct in 2D view.

Example for Steel-Concrete Composite Column:

Is possible to include to the next version 2015+ generator of the 3D steel profiles
(localization free in space (beam, column, cross bracing ) with similar interface like there:



to generate f.e. these objects:

Align Wall to Roof generates error of top surface of wall which is not parallel to bottom surface of Roof,
some tips/trick allow avoid this CAD problem.

New future functionality
3 types of ending of Roof should depend for User choice. It depends on slope angle of Roof.

For test Thickness is constans = 200mm (wood beam), Slab Thickness = 200mm/cos(Slope)

Propositions endings for ZWCAD Architecture 2015+???

Angle 25deg.

Angle 45deg.

Angle 70deg.

Conclusions: Actual automatic type of ending of Roof nr1 looks bad for angle 70deg.

2D CONFLICT between 2D command (f.e.COPY/MOOVE...) with
2D BIM OBJECTS of ZWCAD ARCH. 2012+ in ZWCAD PRO 2014+


I will try show problem and how to solve it, but final effect for User of ZWCAD PRO 2014+
is bad, because All 2D BIM data are lost.
Only users of ZWCAD ARCH.+ are satisfied, all 2D BIM data are always saved.

Please implement new macro for

MULTI-LAYER WALLS
,
which may be similar to mechanism CAD for Wall EXTERIOR.


In medium/cold climat Architects need sometimes MULTI-LAYER WALLS example:

Silica Bric 250mm + Insulation 120mm + Air Ventilation 40mm + Silica Bric_120mm/Clinker Bric_120mm

graphic example:
_WALL_3LAYERS_002.jpg

By loooooooong way by 2014+ beta I have made 3-layer wall

SUGGESTION for

NEW FUNCTIONALITY


New option for Layers called f.e. View Control Layer.


This procedure allows create one composite CAD block independent for 2D and 3D Views.
Function will allow to make individual Library of 2D/3D objects.

Please implement WOOD material

for structures


Now We have 4 options:

(0) No material
(1) Reinforced concrete
(2) Brick
(3) Metal


Why There is not WOOD (4) !!!

If We use for traditional structure of building
Bricks, reinforcement and Wood ....We may use steel by changing
steel pattern to wood pattern

step by step:

command Align Wall to Roof doesn't work properly,
Align_Wall_to_Roof_command_fot01.jpg
2013-10-7 08:21


my Example shows step by step properly displayed final effect of Aligned Wall to Roof.

Example. We draw rectangle exterior Walls 250mm with insulation 150mm, Hight = 3000mm
We draw Double Slope Roof 30deg. set with parameter Elevation = 3000mm, too.

1. Moove inside 2 Gable Walls 500mm.
2. Use command Align Wall to Roof
3. Moove outside 2 Gable Walls 500mm.

Top surfaces of Gable Walls are parallel to bottom surfaces of Roof


4. Some correction of point No.3 ..down

For ZWCAD ARCHITECTURE 2014+ and ZWCAD Pro 2014+
ZWSOFT & Lightworks Artisan have prepared Trial version ARTISAN.


ARTISAN works for me only in RIBBON settings.

Don't set Plugin as Add to startup suite, ZWCAD may be unstable. Only set: Load option

The first thing is installing of ARTISAN.
My problems during tests:
- it is stable in RIBBON settings
- unstable ZWCad when We Add to startup suite, only setting on: Load is stable.
- Artisan icons disapear, Every time We should Load Application with *.zrx file

my way example using stable Trial version of Artisan

1. Open ZWCAD 2014+
2. Load plugin by Load Application with option Load only (Add to Startup suite is unstable)
3. Press icon ARTISAN
4. Set dimensions [m] or [cm] or [mm] ... according 3D imported model (*dwg)
5. Artisan ON ..loading programme in Trial
6. Making Rendering Operations with Artisan Window
7. The End..Close Artisan Window
8. Unload Artisan by Remove File ArtisanForZWCad.zrx file from Load Application
9. Close ZWCAD Pro 2014+
10.Go to point No. 1

15 October 2013 - Correction


Procedures from 1 to 10 are very stable for cooperation
between ZWCAD pro 2014+ and Artisan

After work, I did positive tests with
ZWCAD ARCHITECTURE 2014+ with ARTISAN


according instruction:


1. Open ZWCAD ARCHITECTURE 2014+
2. Load plugin by Load Application with option Load only (Add to Startup suite is unstable, don't do it !!!)
3. Press icon ARTISAN

4. Set dimensions [m] or [cm] or [mm] ... according 3D imported model (*dwg)
5. Artisan ON ..loading programme in Trial
6. Making Rendering Operations with Artisan Window
7. The End..Close Artisan Window
8. Remove File ArtisanForZWCad.zrx file from Load Application
9. Close ZWCAD ARCHITECTURE 2014+
