Creating a Drawing from a Joinery Unit in Vectorworks

I’m well into my notes for this month’s CPD Manual for my subscribers. We are looking at drawing a commercial joinery unit form scratch, and using the model to create drawings.

The aim of the manuals is to show how fast it can be to create a 3D model for the display unit. After all, it is made out of sheet material, so it will be quick to draw and extrude. With Vectorworks 2011, there are really fast ways to model the unit, using working planes and the Push/Pull tool.

After playing with the model, we can use viewports to create the drawings. If we edit the model, the viewports are easy to update.

We will be drawing this and discussing the best methods for creating the model online.
