As I incompletely understand it, you cannot run 32 bit virtual software or emulate 32 bit software on a 64 bit operating system.
I don't think that's the case since I'm running PowerCadd in a VM on a 64 bit Intel Mac Mini…

Re: Mojave VM on an M1 Mac

FYI…
If you have a VM application like VMWare Fusion it looks like the VM's you use must have ARM versions of host OS's…tried it on my M1 mac…

Running PowerCadd in an M1 VM looks like a non-starter…

I bought Vectorworks
Had it for a week
Went through almost 3 of their courses so far
I’m glad I got it
I think it’s going to be really good for generating a set of plans
The program is impressive
Which version did you get?

Re: Life after/beyond PowerCadd?

You can go from formZ‘s modeling into formZ’s layout and then export as DXF Then you could import that DXF into the CAD program of your choice Below is a DXF that I exported out of the layout in formZ and then imported into HighDesign Those dimensions were added in HighDesign So you’re able to brin...

Re: Life after/beyond PowerCadd?

Frankly if I was able to do it all over again, knowing that PC would be going into the dumpster before the end of my career I'd have stuck with MiniCad, which is now Vector works. I'll say again, and I know that the effort has been made by Alfred, that if FZ would figure out how to get the wild too...

Re: Life after/beyond PowerCadd?

Directly below is the dialog box that pops up after I make a change to the model, when I click on the layout Yeah I get the same dialog. When I click OK nothing happens some of the time. Right now the current Layout/model combo is unresponsive… Maybe it's because I imported a Sketchup model (via dw...

Re: Life after/beyond PowerCadd?

What exactly is it that you’re trying to do with formZ Draft? Maybe I can help I'm considering learning to use it alongside Sketchup, which I've been using for nearly 20 years Not comfortable with the direction Trimble seems to be going I watched the YouTube video on using Draft but I have intermit...
