The clip cube is a fantastic technique for filtering your model in 3D. The clip cube will allow you to filter out the parts of your model that you do not want to see. The easiest way to create your clip cube is to select an object before activating it. You can see from the image how it takes away all the information that you don’t require. The clip cube can be adjusted after you activate it using the selection tool.
Vectorworks 2015 allows you to create blocks of text with variable spacing for the tab settings. This is new. In the past, all of the tab settings were the same width. Now you can create blocks of text with different width settings with the tabs.
3D Polygon Tool – Vectorworks has some really cool 3D tools, and it’s tempting to always look at these instead of some of the basic 3D tools that Vectorworks Has. The 3D polygon tool can be used to draw a polygon between 3D objects. You don’t need to use automatic working planes, you don’t need to set working planes, you just need to draw the 3D object and snap to the 3D geometry you already have.
It doesn’t matter if you are creating architecture, landscaping, set design, or modelling, drawing walls is important. The purpose of this manual is to cover all of the major techniques of drawing, editing, and managing walls. You might think that drawing walls requires nothing more than a couple of clicks. While you can certainly draw walls with a couple of clicks, there are a lot more to walls than that. These workshops looked in depth at how to draw, edit and manage walls.
This tool is so useful for creating complex curving shapes. There are three modes, No Rail mode, One Rail mode, and Birail Sweep. Each mode has a use, and they have very different results. Watch the movie to find out more. In the fist mode you use series of cross sections to create the object, in the second mode you use a profile and a single rail, in the third mode you use two rails and a profile.
Dimensions – Notes with Dimensions. In Vectorworks 2015 they have added the ability to attach notes to your dimensions. The dimension note will always appear on the opposite side to the dimension. It will also seem to the note on the dimension, which means when you move the dimension text relative to the dimension line, your will move as well.
In this session we looked at Keeping accurate time for a job whilst working in Vectorworks, the new site modeling features in version 2015, creating the banks of a pond that have a constant slope, and how to create underwater steps for the pond.
Vectorworks 2015 has several new site modeling improvements. The three main improvements of the changes to the visual appearance of errors in your site modeling and 2 new road tools. The changes to the visual appearance of errors in your site model are such a timesaver, several clients have pointed out how much time the small edition has saved them. The two new roads of very powerful and will certainly speed up your site modeling. The new Roadway (Custom Kerb) is really powerful, and allows you to make roads of various shapes. I recently use this tool to create a car park where each side of the car park sloped to a drain.
In the session we focused on site modifies and site modeling in Vectorworks 2015. There have been some important changes in Vectorworks 2015. One of the most important is the ability to see errors in your site model visually. This may not sound like much in improvement, but everybody who sees it comments on how important this change is. We also looked at two of the new road objects, one of which we used to build a car park.
I’ve recently been having trouble with my Macintosh and I spent a couple of hours today online with Apple support. During the phone call they asked me to do several things when restarting my computer, things like checking diagnostics, safe booting, Internet recovery, and reinstalling the operating system. A lot of these are covered by keyboard shortcuts you restart your computer.
