Architect Special Interest Group August 2016 (am)

The main topic for this session was detailing, using detail viewports and linked viewports. A lot time on an Architectural project is spent coordinating detail references with the details, but Vectorworks has a way to automate that.

Topics Covered:

  • 02:52    using the Building Code PDF to create details
  • 05:01    what scale should the detail layer be?
  • 05:30    unified view options
  • 06:30    ungrouping a PDF file to edit the source.
  • 08:05    editing the detail by adding symbols from a library
