Interactive Workshops May 2013 – Intermediate 3D Modeling

We often talk about Building Information Modeling and the assumption is that we will be building a 3D version of our building. However, there are several objects that you might want to model independently because the standard Vectorworks tools will not create exactly what you require.

Education_SIG_004 Education Special Interest Group April 2013

This session looked at the Education Resources and how to find them on the web site. We also looked at the image on the web site that shows the parts and how the parts relate to each other, and teaching Vectorworks as a whole. I think the road map is really useful to see how the parts relate, and it makes it easy to plan teaching Vectorworks.

Education_SIG_003 Education Special Interest Group March 2013

In this session we looked at the resources that have been created this month on the Educations Resources page. Each month more resources are being added, so it is a good idea to see how the resources are being added and if the order of the resources need amending.

Education_m_004 – Extrusions

Extrusions are the main object in 3D modeling, so here are some rules for Extrusions. Extrude To create an extrusion start with a solid 2D element, for example a rectangle, a circle, etc. If you want to render the object it has to be a solid object before you extrude it. It can be a line, rectangle, polygon. It can be any 2D shape.
