This was the second session for the May BIM Special Interest Group. There was only one attendee, so he was able to guide the direction of the session. We look at worksheets and creating a window schedule.
- where are worksheets stored?
- Placing worksheets on a design layer to keep them all together
- what kind of objects can you report in a worksheet
- examples of symbols that report their information on a worksheet
- symbols that have editable text are created using link text to record
- using the standard Vectorworks window to create a symbol
- resizing a window symbol does not keep the locked sashes
- Editing a window using custom sash options
- duplicate in window symbols to create the next window
- window symbols can be used on several projects
- importing window symbols from a library
