This session was the first of many that we have planned to cover how to get started in Landscape 3D. There will be several sessions that will follow on from this, this session is just the start.
Following on from tip 303, the next step to getting started with Vectorworks ( if you are using Vectorworks Architect) is to work your way through the Vectorworks Architect Tutorial Manual. This manual has designed to show you the workflow when using Vectorworks Architect. In this manual you start with a blank document and you gradually worked through all the steps from drawing the site plan, creating the site model through to creating the developed design drawings using BIM techniques.
If you’re transitioning from another CAD program to Vectorworks you want to know how to get started quickly, Tip 300 tells you to work through my Essentials Tutorial Manual. This really is the best way to get started. But where do you start and how do youuse this manual? Some users like to skim through the manual and cherry pick the parts they want. The best way to use this manual start at the beginning and complete every exercise and watch the movies. I know that might sound like hard work, but every exercises designed to teach you a specific part of Vectorworks. If you’re familiar with another CAD programs you will find the movies contain a wealth of tips and tricks.
