This exercise is to show you how to use the horizontal and vertical divisions to create an outcome such as, in this case, a wine rack.
The cabinet 3D object is often referred to as the Custom Cabinet. It uses a similar principle to the classic cabinet, but, instead of calling the divisions horizontal and vertical, they are known as boxes (horizontal) and columns (vertical).
InteriorCAD is a powerful addition to Vectorworks; but, if you do not understand the basic concepts, you could find the dialog boxes confusing.
In order to tell InteriorCAD where to put drawers and doors, you need to divide up the cabinet into what are called divisions. With the classic cabinet there are horizontal and vertical divisions, which you control by selecting an icon in the dialog box.
It is tempting to think that if we covered the design of the kitchen, that would be enough. But also like to show you how you can use Vectorworks for creating more of an interior design that showed details of the kitchen, how the kitchen connects to other rooms, demolition, and furniture. We would also like to use the three-dimensional models of our furniture to create the drawings.
We will be using Building Information Modelling principles. So as well is drawing the plan will also be drawing the three-dimensional parts of our design. This is what will allow us to create the drawings from the 3D model.
We will be looking at many aspects of Vectorworks, from simple concepts through to some of the new techniques in Vectorworks 2017.
