archoncad holds two types of monthly webinars:
Both types of webinars are recorded and available to Archoncad subscribers after they occur. However, the best way to learn Vectorworks and have your questions answered is to attend the live sessions.
INTERACTIVE WORKSHOPS explore a specific predetermined topic (i.e. Outdoor Lighting). Each month’s topic is set prior to the webinar and an online manual is available to guide the session. Each topic will start out assuming that you know nothing about the topic, so the basic concepts will be covered. The workshop will then move into the move advanced parts of the topic.
SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS are about an aspect of Vectorworks (i.e. 3D modeling) that is important to your profession. The actual items discussed are proposed by the attendees. If you have questions you would like answered on this aspect, this is the place to bring them. If you want your topics covered, you must attend. Except for the Getting Started group, you should expect to see intermediate and advanced topics being covered. If you are new to Vectorworks then you should be attending the Getting Started sessions until you are more proficient.
What you need to know about attending the online workshops:
First, you have to register for an online session. Scroll down the page to find all the sessions and click on a link to Book for a Session.
When you register for a session, use the link: Show in my Time Zone. This will change the registration page and all subsequent emails to your time zone. The reminder emails have a link to add the session to your calendar, these will also be in your time zone.
What do you need to join a session?
- High-Speed Internet. We use GoToWebinar (a small bit of software that you will have to download, it’s free) to run these sessions over the Internet. So, you will need a high-speed Internet connection and a high-speed computer network. I have noticed that clients on a wireless network have a lesser experience, so try connecting directly to your computer network.
- Mic and Headset Because we talk to each other, a head set with a microphone is important. Try to find an easy to use USB headset and mic, this will make it better for you and others (you will create less feedback, echos and background noise). Here is the headset I use…
All sessions will be recorded and posted on this website. Registering for these sessions confirms your agreement to be recorded.
