• Interactive Workshops July 2020 – Space Objects

    Space objects are a powerful part of Vectorworks and they are an important conceptual model of BIM (Building Information Modeling). The space objects are not just a 2D or 3D object, they also carry information about the room name, the required area, the volume, finishing information, etc. Spaces in Vectorworks…

  • Interactive Workshops May 2020 – Railing and Fences

    There are a couple of tools that can be used for railing and fencing, so we will look at the differences in the tools and look at the strategies for using them. Check out the knowledgebase article that goes with this session…

  • Interactive Workshops January 2020

    There are several techniques that I use to control and manage my drawings. In this article we will be covering saved views (including a brief look at layers and classes), controlling classes and layers in viewports, controlling visibilities on drawings, and multiple view panes.

  • Vectorworks Tips 454 – Workflows – Create Objects From Shapes

    Your workflow is the way that you work, the way that you use a tool/technique and then move onto the next tool/technique. As Vectorworks changes and updates every year you need to keep an eye on your workflows to ensure that you are using the latest and most efficient methods….

  • Vectorworks Tips 453 – Workflows – Creating Symbols For Efficiency

    Most users are able to create symbols, and all users should be able to use symbols. Symbols are relatively small repeatable objects, and most Vectorworks users use symbols to speed up the drawing process. There are two workflows for using symbols: a quick workflow versus an inefficient workflow. Some users…
