    Conclusion – There is no doubt in my mind that using a Building Information Modelling workflow is by far the most productive way of creating drawings. As you can see from this manual, there are several speed advantages in building the 3D model. Initially, you might find that it is slightly…

    Creating A Detail – Vectorworks has the ability to link viewports to detail references. This will allow you to create a detail reference in one location and link it to a viewport in a different location. When you update the 3D model the section will update, and the detail will also…

    Creating A Section – It is now time to complete the drawings. If you are used to a 2D only workflow, you may not be used to using viewports and sheet layers to create your drawings. We have already set up one sheet layer and created several viewports but these might…

    Creating A Title Block – Now that we have arranged the viewports on a sheet layer, we can add a title block. There are two tools that we can use for this: Sheet Border or VAA Title Block. If you are using the NZ/Aust version of Vectorworks, use the VAA Title…

    Creating A Perspective View – You can use your 3D model to create as many plans, sections, elevations, and perspectives views that you require. To create a Perspective view it is easier if you use the Renderworks Camera tool to do it.

    Creating Drawings – Now that we have some of the information, we can create drawings using viewports and sheet layers to show the live elevation from our model. You do not have to wait until the model is complete before you create your drawings. Viewports let you take a view of…
