Grid Entry Method – A common way to survey a site is to use a grid. With this method, set up a regular grid for northings and eastings. It is important that the grid is consistent as Vectorworks assumes that you have regular spacings. It is also important to understand that the grid in Vectorworks is orthogonal on the screen. If you want the grid to follow one of the boundaries, use the Rotate Plan tool first.
