Referencing seems like a big complex topic, but referencing can be easy to use, and can be very productive if you understand it. I often use referencing to bring in PDF files from consultants or for large areas of text. In simple terms, referencing is when you link external files to your current Vectorworks file.
Referencing the structural engineer’s drawings is useful when the drawings might change. When you import PDF drawings, you have the option to reference the PDF. Choosing the reference option allows you to quickly update the structural drawings when they are updated.
This month the Vector-workout Subscription will be looking at this topic. I’m in the middle of writing the manual for the subscribers.
