    Creating Roof Framing – We have a tool that will allow us to create roof framing, it’s called the Framing Member. If you are using the Fundamentals workspace change back to your professional workspace where you will find the Framing Member Tool on the Detailing toolset. Not only will this tool…

    Creating The Columns – There is a tool that is specifically designed for drawing columns. This tool creates a 2D and a 3D portion of a column. Like the wall tool, it makes it quick to create these objects if you set the preferences correctly.

    Creating The Walls – Many of our projects need walls. This is obvious for architects but many landscape projects also use walls as well. If we use the walls correctly we can get the 2D view of the project that we require, and we can also get the 3D part of the…

     Setting Up The Layers – As we are going to create a 3D drawing it will be substantially easier if we create and set up our layers correctly for this project. This is one area where some users think that Vectorworks is too complex. If you find this area complex, then…

  • cadmovie_1607-01 – From 2D To BIM – Part 1

    Introduction – I have taught many Vectorworks users who think that 2D is the easy part of Vectorworks and 3D only comes into play as an added luxury: “I want to get 2D under my belt first, then look at 3D.” This is a complete misunderstanding of the way that Vectorworks…

  • Interactive Workshops July 2016 (1607) – From 2D Drawing To BIM

    Just lately, I have been teaching several users who want to move from using a workflow to using Building Information Modelling (3D workflow). In the past, I had several users who would say “I want to get to the under my belt first then look at 3D.” This suggests that…

  • Symbols and BIM

    Symbols are excellent for using with Building Information Modeling. They can be created so that they have the 2D part, the 3D part, and the information that you require. You can use classes to control the 2D and 3D portions of the symbol, so that the symbol can appear differently…

  • Tools That Speed you from 2D to 3D – The Wall Tool

    The Wall Tool is one of the most important tools to speed up your drawing from 2D to 3D, regardless of your profession. If you set up design layers correctly, the wall tool will give 3D for free. But that is only the start of what you can do with…
