In this session we tested several methods to see if it was possible to use a subdivision surface for site modifying (it was).
In this session we looked at adding special characters to text, creating sloping walls, techniques with viewports and batch rendering.
In this session we looked at what information should be stored in a tempalte file and what should be stored in Default Content.
In this session we looked at detail viewports, linked viewports, the callout objects that control these viewports, sheet borders, using worksheets to report objects, and using the worksheets to control the objects.
In this session we looked at clerestory windows, the eyedropper tool, windoor and camera match.
In this session we looked at creating an accessible toilet using symbols, creating internal room elevations, the heliodon, and what things should be included in a template file.
in this session we looked at options for exporting a model for a client (using cloud services and 3D PDF), how to line up a mode with the site plan, creating a site model snapshot, and site model errors.

In this session we looked at site modelling again. In particular, we looked at a special case where we wanted to create site modifiers above the site model (it’s actually a construction pad above the level of the site model for drainage). This is probably the first time that we have looked at the concept of site modelling, how it actually works and I’ve drawn an example to show exactly how Vectorworks calculates the contours.
In this session we started by looking at wall styles. The question was about using wall styles to draw an existing project. One of the problems with using wall styles is the challenge when you come to draw an existing plan and the wall widths are not consistent. This could involve you having several different wall styles to cover the different widths, which is made worse if you need to show some of the walls is being demolished (which effectively doubles the number of wall styles needed).
