In this session, we looked at creating a small, outdoor pergola seating area and its drawing details. This means that we had to look at how the footings were created, how the posts would be connected to the footings in detail, and how we would construct the posts, beams, and trusses in detail.
In this session, we looked at creating a tapered extrude for a table leg, creating quicker viewports from objects, creating a custom sketch style for a drawing, using the Fillet tool, and creating a Queen Anne style table leg.
In this session we looked at auto hybrid objects which lead us onto looking at creating downpipes (downspouts) for a project.
Because Vectorworks remembers the original path and the original profile for your extruded along path, you can edit this object and you can completely change the profile, without changing the path. This allows you to start creating your objects before you have all the information you need, because you can go back later and edit the profile as you have more information.
