• 3D Modeling Special Interest Group – December 2018

    In this session, we discussed how to go about modeling various objects in 3D, making the simplest shapes with extrusions and proceeding to increasingly more complicated shapes made from multiple extrusions, sweeps, Extrude Along Path, NURBS curves, and subdivision modeling.

  • Getting Started Special Interest Group March 2018

    In this session, we looked at the basic concepts of 3D modeling, including working planes, the floating datum, 3D viewing, the extrude, the multiple extrude, the tapered extrude, the sweep, and simple solid modeling.

  • 3D Modeling Special Interest Group – March 2018

    In this session, we used various methods—the Extrude Along Path command, the Foliage tool, and the Create Surface Array command—to create a vertical garden, as well as discussing how to create a transparent color mask and how to use the Chain Extrude tool.

  • 3D Modeling Special Interest Group – January 2018

    In this session, we discussed a bit about using textures versus making a 3D model, covered how turning the Callout tool into a symbol can add functionality to it, constructed a room with various moldings and panels, created a texture, and demonstrated aspects of using the Create Interior Elevation Viewport…

  • 3D Modeling Special Interest Group – December 2017

      In this session, we discussed the process for modeling a specific type of chair—a modern industrial X chair—and went through the construction step by step.

  • 3D Modeling Special Interest Group – November 2017

    In this session, we covered importing a SketchUp chair into a Vectorworks file, discussed some of the changes to the Subdivision Modeling modes in Vectorworks 2018, and highlighted some stair tricks and tips, such as making a simple stair into a site modifier and quickly creating a custom stair.

  • 3D Modeling Special Interest Group – September 2017

    In this session, we went through the steps needed for making a scroll object. Along the way, we touched on how to use the Extrude Along Path command, the Loft Surface Tool, and Working Planes.

  • 3D Modeling Special Interest Group – August 2017

    In this session, we first looked at the Automatic Working Plane and how to take advantage of instant push/pull features when constructing objects in a 3D view; then, we applied these techniques in building a pool.

  • Landscape Special Interest Group May 2017 pm

    In this session, we looked at creating a small, outdoor pergola seating area and its drawing details. This means that we had to look at how the footings were created, how the posts would be connected to the footings in detail, and how we would construct the posts, beams, and trusses…
