Introduction to Building Information Modeling

Introduction to BIM (Building Information Modeling) for Architects. As well as creating 2D drawings for plans, sections, and elevations, you can extract non-graphic information from the model like a finish schedule, door and window schedule, and other information like wall areas and glass areas. BIM is not just a new catch phrase, it is also a more efficient way of creating drawings in Vectorworks.


Guide to Residential Concept Design

Many of my clients want to use Vectorworks just for conceptual design, they want a quick way of modeling the building, a way to see the building on the site, and they want to be able to check the building with a solar study.
