• Vectorworks Baseboard Plug-in

    I was sent information about this new plug-in for Vectorworks. It creates baseboards (or skirtings) for Vectorworks. This is the same guy that created the Foliage tool, which is now part of Vectorworks. It looks like its highly editable, and you can use a symbol for the profile. This means…

  • 3D Modeling Special Interest Group – June 2017

    In this session, we looked at how to control objects with different working planes by using the Align Plane Tool, different methods for constructing countertops, and how to align callouts by using the Align/Distribute Leader Lines command.

  • 3D Modeling Special Interest Group – April 2017

    In this session, we wanted to look at how we could create a 3D model for the Tizio lamp, a classic table lamp designed by Richard Sapper in 1972. Creating a model from a known object will allow us to look at how we can start with a complex shape…

  • Landscape Special Interest Group February (pm) 2017

    In this session we looked at the curtain wall tool and 3D modelling. The problem that we looked at was how to create the timber framing of a small building.

  • 3D Modeling Special Interest Group – February 2017

    In this session the attendees wanted to look at how to create a helical ramp for a car park building. This might sound complex, but using reasonably simple Vectorworks 3D modelling techniques it was quick to create. The users then wanted to make it more complex by adding handrails and…

  • 3D Modeling Special Interest Group – January 2017

    This session is not a beginner session on 3D modelling, it is an intermediate/advanced session. We covered the concept of meshes, modelling history, generic solids, and a small amount of basic 3D modelling. The users wanted to look at how we could use the history of the 3D modelling to…

  • Getting Started Special Interest Group December 2016

    In this session we looked at quick and simple ways to create 3D objects, how you can use these to create more complex objects, how to find more complex 3D objects online, how to import them, and how to use the imported models.

  • Landscape Special Interest Group November (pm) 2016

    This entire session was devoted to solving the problem of how to create a landscape feature that was designed to be a series of different sized umbrellas. In order to achieve this we used a subdivision surface for the shape of the umbrella, simply extrusions for some parts of the…

  • SST_1611 – Interior Design (It’s Not Just Kitchen Design)

    In this manual we looked at interior design, and while we are the kitchen as the basis of our design, this manual is about more than just kitchen design. It is tempting to think that if we covered the design of the kitchen, that would be enough. But also like…

  • Architect Special Interest Group September 2016 (pm)

    In this session we looked at creating a greenhouse using extrude along the path to create the frames of the greenhouse, but the path had to be a specific size which was a combination of straight sections and a curved roof.
