Welcome to Archoncad

This is what you get when you join our website.

When you join this web site you get access to all the movies, manuals, online sessions, and library files. There are over 2500 movies, divided into groups to suit Architects, Landscape designers, Educators and 3D modellers. Each month you get a new short manual, and you each month you can attend online interactive sessions about the manual. You also have access to a range of interactive Special Interest Groups. These work like an online user group where you can bring your issues for discussion and resolution.

This web site has the greatest range of Vectorworks training available, but it is not just the resources that make it valuable - it is the online sessions and the way that it is presented. Jonathan Pickup has been using and training Vectorworks for over 20 years. The aim of his training as always been to de-mystify the software. Instead of finding lots of complex jargon, you will find plain english, plain explanations and simple examples. To get an idea of the way that he presents abstract concepts, check out the Tips that he posts almost every day.

You should join because this web site provides the best range of resources and online sessions to learn Vectorworks. We don't expect you to be an expert before we help you - We want to help you from getting started to being an experienced and productive user.

Getting Started

When you’re learning Vectorworks it’s important for you to understand the basic concepts. These resources have been structured to provide a logical training system to help you get started with Vectorworks.

Manuals

Each month I write a short manual (usually 40-60 pages). The topics range from beginner topics (Graphics, Worksheets, etc.) through to advanced topics (Lighting, Rendering, etc). There are over 100 manuals to choose from.

Interactive Workshops

Each month you can attend sessions related to the monthly manuals. These sessions are recorded. There are over 100 sessions that you can watch.

Videos to Learn Techniques

Each monthly manual has links to movies. This area has all the movies from these manuals. There are over 1100 movies available for you to watch.


These are also available when you join our website.
