Vectorworks 2019 Courses Now Available

010

I am pleased to announce that I have completely updated and expanded courses for Vectorworks 2019:

Foundation Course

The purpose of this course is to teach you the basic concepts of Vectorworks. It is tempting to try to avoid these basic concepts, but these are the ones that make you truly effective in Vectorworks. It is tempting to try to avoid this course, but going to a more advanced one would be a mistake. This is the course you need if you really want to use Vectorworks well. It is important to work through each movie and exercise. You might not understand why you are learning a specific technique—but trust me—to maximize the potential of Vectorworks you will need to learn each one. I know that you want to progress as quickly as possible—we all want that! I have taught thousands of people Vectorworks by using the manual that this course is based on. They have become skilled at using Vectorworks by working through these exercises.

Video run time: over 8 hrs of video

Vectorworks Building Information Modeling (Architect) 2019

Many people talk about BIM these days—it is a powerful way to create drawings. This course is an introduction to using Building Information Modeling with Vectorworks Architect. It is designed to teach you BIM concepts and how to use Vectorworks Architect so that you can be more productive. All of this has been brought together in a concise course.

Through the course, you will complete a simple two-story project that will teach you the basics of BIM. We will start with first principles and then construct a Building Model step by step so that we can create plans, sections, and elevations. We will progress through modeling the site, generating solar studies, rendering 3D views, creating internal room elevations, and constructing details.

Video run time: over 11 hrs of video

 

Vectorworks Building Information Modeling (Landmark) 2018

We are pleased to announce that the new landmark course for Vectorworks 2018 is finally complete. I know this has taken longer than most people expected. The course has been completely redesigned from the ground up and it now follows the structure of the two-day Landmark BIM because that has been so successful in New Zealand.

The course has completely new movies and exercises. The total running time of the videos is just over six hours and 43 minutes, which should take you about a week to complete.

Introduction to BIM for Landscape Course

It has been a while, but I have decided to start face-to-face courses. I used to have these courses on a regular basis in Auckland NZ. I am starting with the first course late March 2017. It’s already sold out, so don’t worry about the short notice, but I am planning on running these courses every three months. Use this contact page if you would like to book for this course.

There is a lot of talk about Building Information Modelling (BIM) in relation to architecture, but not in relation to landscape design. The principles behind BIM can be used to speed up the a production of your landscape projects and drawings. This course is an introduction to using BIM with Vectorworks Landmark and it has been designed to teach you the concepts of BIM and how to use the Vectorworks Landmark in the most productive way. It has all been brought together in a concise face to face course.

Repetition is Important When Learning Vectorworks

Prior to running my Vectorworks courses online, I used to run them in a classroom. At the time it seemed like the best thing that I could do. I was aware at the time that repetition was important, and the way the courses were structured, it allowed time for the attendees to practice, while I would circulate the room, helping any users that were struggling.
