3D Modeling Special Interest Group – October 2016

3dmodel_030_oct_16

In this session we looked at what’s new in Vectorworks 2017. In particular we looked at subdivision and the two new tools (mirror mode and bridge mode) and we looked at Slab drainage.

Topics covered:

  • 00:22    what is new in subdivision modelling
  • 00:35    the new modes on the toolbar
  • 01:04    subdivision modelling – mirror mode
  • 04:00    subdivision modelling – split mode
  • 04:09    subdivision modelling – transform mode
  • 04:50    subdivision modelling – extrude face mode (transform plus alt key)
  • 06:36    subdivision modelling – using extruded face on multiple faces
  • 08:00    what is the effect of turning off the mirror mode
  • 09:01    using split tool on a subdivision object
  • 11:28    convert to subdivision object (new in 2017)
  • 12:19    using crease all edges from the contextual menu
  • 13:49    file info dialog to see the size of the existing file
  • 15:49    convert to generic solid
  • 17:26    convert to symbol
  • 18:26    setting up a project to use bridge mode for subdivision modelling
  • 19:39    compose subdivision objects
  • 20:15    mirror objects
  • 20:20    using bridge mode  for subdivision modelling
  • 21:17    starting a subdivision chair project with simple extrusions
  • 23:05    creating a base of the chair object
  • 24:26    Slab drainage
