We often have to work with other consultants and with other file formats. In these cases, we have to import this information, or we have to export it for others. There are many choices. In these sessions, we looked at the most useful formats for the users.
There is more information on the knowledgebase here…
There are times to draw the annotations on the design layer and times to draw them in the viewport. In this session, we talked about getting organized in Vectorworks, using classes, the annotation window, the Data Tag tool and IFC data records to your advantage.
In this session, we covered placing comments on drawings, working with interior elevations, including the extents beyond and before the cut plane, using object styles instead of symbols for creating door and window elevation drawings, and placing tags with the Data Tag tool.
In this session, we discussed how to go about modeling various objects in 3D, making the simplest shapes with extrusions and proceeding to increasingly more complicated shapes made from multiple extrusions, sweeps, Extrude Along Path, NURBS curves, and subdivision modeling.
In this session, we talked about what information to put in a viewport annotation window, showed how to use the Detail-Callout Marker tool, how to create a roof and work with intersecting roofs, and how to use Vectorworks from a SketchUp point of view, and demonstrated drawing from one Multiple View Pane to another.
In this session, we talked about the lack of detail on Vectorworks doors, demonstrated how to create a workgroup reference file, discussed the zooming in and out issue, covered using Multiple View Panes, as well as the Section-Elevation Marker tool and the Data Tag tool, and discussed some Stair tool oddities.
In this session, we discussed about moving from AutoCAD to Vectorworks, looking at Vectorworks facilitates moving from 2D objects to 3D constructions. We modified a Landscape Area, a low garden wall, and plant objects to demonstrate this concept.
In this session, we covered how to create the 2D and 3D parts of a plant object and discussed how Vectorworks 2019 allows you to import data from your plant supplier and attach that information to your created plant objects.
In this session, we discussed creating trusses, using the class visibility options, getting an object that spans two floors to show up on both floor plans, using the new Tag tool, and using the Reference Marker and Section-Elevation Marker tools instead of the Tag tool in some situations.
In this session, we explored a problem that someone was having with the Create Interior Elevation Viewport command and then covered several new features in Vectorworks 2019: filters, the Extends Before Cut Plane setting for sections, the option to turn a Clip Cube view into a section viewport, the horizontal section, the Data Tag tool, and textures from the mtextur website.
In this session, we talked about some things that are new in Vectorworks 2019, including how to filter the class list, how to control every 2D view of a symbol (not only the top view), and how to turn a Clip Cube view into a viewport.
3D Modeling Special Interest Group October 2018
In this session, we demonstrated creating hybrid objects, creating footings for a building slab by using the Extrude Along Path command, and changing Title Block styles.
