SST_1104 – Productivity

Productivity is about producing more in the same time. When we talk about productivity in Vectorworks, that might be drawing quicker, and it might also be learning a new technique.

I believe that if you make sure you are using these techniques, you can save a lot of time. If you are not using these techniques you are loosing over thirty minutes every day (over two hours a week, a day a month…).
