Auto Hybrid – This was introduced for Vectorworks 2013. It greatly speeds up the creation of hybrid objects. Prior to this you had to create a symbol with a 2D component and a 3D component in order to create a hybrid object.
The auto hybrid object allows you to choose the height at which the plan view is cut, effectively allowing you to choose the look of the plan part of the auto hybrid.There is some great protected information here that is only available to paying subscribers.
