In this session, we looked at the function of stories and levels compared with design layers, as well as how to easily create elevations.
In this session, we looked at how to set up design layers and stories for a project with a complex building design.
In this session, we showed the flexibility and importance of using object styles in projects, reviewed how to create a slab for a complex set of walls—including adding slab drainage—and discussed setting up interior elevations.
In this session, we covered how to quickly add drainage to a parking area, combine two roofs together, add dormer windows or skylights, and use the various stair tools in Vectorworks, as well as discussing the advantages of using Vectorworks Cloud Services.
In this session, we went through an overview of the new Title Block Border Tool in Vectorworks 2018.
In this session, we discussed the new upgrade to Vectorworks 2018—should you upgrade right away or shouldn’t you?—and opened up an old project file in VW 2018 to see how it behaved. We also covered some tricks for working with dimensions, the new feature in VW2018 that allows you to work in multiple drawing views, and the updated Detail Callout Marker Tool.
In this session, we covered how to set the graphic style of various labels—such as Drawing Labels, Scale Bars, and Detail Callout Markers—and how to use the Curtain Wall tool to powerfully control curtain walls, which can be used for objects such as shop fronts, bay windows, and bookshelves.
In this session, we looked at the Resource Manager in more detail and covered what things can be stored in a personal library file and what things should be saved in a template file.
In this session, we covered how to transfer Vectorworks resources from one computer to another, clarified several points from last month regarding the Callout Tool, discussed how settings work together to create complicated objects in WinDoor, and answered numerous questions regarding windows.
In this session, we looked at bringing customized dimensions into a project from another file and at how to work with wall heights, including how to modify or remove wall peaks.
In this session, we looked at creating keynotes and legends with the Callout Tool, working with details, and how best to modify the shapes of simple details.
In this session, we looked at three main topics. We looked at how to create a car park area that slopes in two directions, we looked at creating a building project that does not use stories, and we looked at how to control the graphics of wall components.
In this session, we looked at slabs, and we looked at counting special parts, particularly objects where you might need to create a record format in order to count them.
In this session, we looked at capping the end of a wall, and we looked at roading on a site model. We spent most of the time looking at roading, how to set the road in relation to a site model and how to make changes to the end of a Roadway object so that it matches the opening of a garage.
In this session, we looked at three main topics. We looked at different types of symbols, how to control the graphic style of symbols, and how to create a section viewport that uses two-point perspective.
In this session we looked at the resource manager. An introduction to movie hemi talk about other topics that we were hoping to cover but we did not have time to cover all these topics. In terms of resource manager we looked at using tools, object styles, and textures.
In this session we wanted to look at creating an addition to a wall. We looked at different ways of creating a small area of wall that could have a different texture or a projection away from the face of the wall.
In this session we looked at site modifies on a particular we looked at site modify conflicts. There are different reasons why site modifies might conflict with each other and we created examples where we could look at these problems and what the result was on the site model. In general terms if you have a site modify conflict you will not get an accurate site model. While this might not look too bad, it may cause errors in your cut and fill calculations.
In this session we wanted to look at scheduling and worksheets and how they could be connected to spaces to create a report. The report might want to list the areas and room names, but it could also be more sophisticated and report other requirements such as occupancy loading, number of power socket, etc.
In this session the users wanted to look at the Resource Manager. In the past we have discussed Default Content. In this session we looked at default content from the point of view of only having one single library file.
