• cadmovie1503_02 – BIM for Landscape – Part 2

    Site Modeling – A site model shows 3D data (spot levels or contours) in a way that allows you to see complex 3D models and 2D representations. Vectorworks uses the 3D information to create the models based on the data to help you understand the 2D and 3D nature of…

  • cadmovie1503_01 – BIM for Landscape – Part 1

    Basic Principles  – The basic concept of BIM is that you are not creating basic 2D information, you are creating 3D objects that have information attached to them.

  • Landmark_SIG_071 Special Interest Group April (pm) 2015

    In this session we looked at the Existing Tree tool, how to add species data to the tool, how you can use the VW Plants database to create a tree list that you can use with the Existing Tree tool, the Tag and Number options and how to schedule the…

  • Landmark_SIG_070 Special Interest Group April (pm) 2015

    This session looked at Libraries (any type of library), their basic concepts, how to access, create, edit and where to store them (as since version 2015 there have been changes / improvements). It also showed how to add and edit categories in the Plant Database and how to create your…

  • Landmark_SIG_069 Special Interest Group March (pm) 2015

    This session looked at 3D modelling, creating a tent sail & posts & deck steps using NURBS modelling, Loft Surface tool, Project tool, 3D Polygon tool, Convert to NURBS command, Extrude Along Path (Uniform & Exponential) commands, Offset tool, Create Objects from Shapes (into Floor and Hardscape) command. It also…

  • Landmark_SIG_068 Special Interest Group March (am) 2015

    This session looked at the differences between using a Massing Model and creating a simple house with standard Wall and Roof tools. As demonstrated there are more benefits when using the latter, e.g. can add windows and doors. It also highlighted the Heliodon tool to generate solar studies. It demonstrated…

  • Landmark_SIG_067 Special Interest Group February (pm) 2015

    This session looked at the challenges (bugs) encountered when counting plants in a worksheet, especially in regard of their height, spread and quantity. It also covered in detail how to create your own report (worksheet, schedule), how to edit an existing report (with its many record formats), showed the quickest…

  • Vectorworks Tip 267 – Hardscape – 3D Settings

    Intermediate Tip – The 3D settings on the hardscape object allow you to create the 3D part of the hardscape where you can choose to create a slab, site modifier or texture bed.

  • Landmark_SIG_066 Special Interest Group February (am) 2015

    This session looked at the best tool to use when creating planted or landscaped areas: Plant tool, Landscape Area tool, Hardscape tool, or Texture Bed tool and how to edit them (e.g. content, plant types, spacing, as well as visually). Both the Plant and the Landscape Area tool enable plants…
