    I recently updated from 2022 to Vectorworks 2023 SP6. And now I can not open the Asset Library from the Enscape Tool Set.

    I can open it within the Enscape Renderer tool though.

    I uninstalled Enscape and removed all references in my user folder. Still can not open it. Doesn anyone how to solve this?

    So I have semi solution now for this problem thanks to our supplier.

    When choosing a texture for rounded objects make sure NOT to choose the default Surface UV as this will render the object faceted. Surface UV is the default setting even when you are not using any textures, so a texture needs to be chosen first before you can switch that setting off.

    A semi solution, because if using textures on a cilinder that way: it will of course not show the same way on the side and top.


    Another solution I was working on to avoid this was instead of extruding surfaces, making use of the sweep tool. The default setting for textures these objects is Plane, so it does not show as faceted volumes right away.

    Has this issue been resolved for 2023 release? Demian Gutberlet

    I also need a solution for this issue.

    I originally got a solution from the Vectorworks supplier (Shaded settings), but it seems I can not reproduce that same object in a new drawing anymore.

    As you can see the white banner is faceted and the gold ring is nicely curved (copied from earlier drawing). I can even enlarge this ring to the same size as the banner without getting faceted. All objects are drawn in the same manner: extruded polylines, so what is happening here?
