• Interactive Workshops March 2018 – Back to Basics – Worksheets

    Worksheets are like simple spreadsheets. They allow you to calculate and report information in your Vectorworks files. This is a powerful technique. It has been available in Vectorworks for many years. You can use worksheets to find objects, report them, and do calculations on them. Worksheets are a very helpful part…

  • Landscape Special Interest Group June 2017 pm

    In this session, we looked at creating your own reports for counting planting, landscaping, and hardscaping in order to set up a materials and costs list. We found that some problems could only be solved by creating and attaching a Record Format to objects.

  • SST_1703 – Creating Record Formats

    When you create objects in Vectorworks they can be 2D, 3D or a combination of both. Many objects also have information attached to them. If you think of a door for example, the door has a plan view, you can view it in 3D, and you can report the information…

  • Interactive Workshops March 2017 – Creating Record Formats

    In these sessions we looked at why we would want to create Record Formats, what we can use them for, and how to report them once we have used them. We looked at some intermediate topics like linking the record format to a symbol and linking the record format to…

  • Architect Special Interest Group February 2017 (am)

    In this session we wanted to look at scheduling and  worksheets and how they could be connected to spaces to create a report. The report might want to list the areas and room names, but it could also be more sophisticated and report other requirements such as occupancy loading, number…

  • Interactive Workshops February 2016 (1602) – Building Takeoff

    In these sessions we looked at creating a building takeoff report. In order to do that we covered the basics of creating worksheets (which is the technique we need to use to create a report). We also looked at designing a building takeoff, because while Vectorworks has the ability to report…

  • Landmark_SIG_076 Special Interest Group July (am) 2015

    In this session we looked at the report from the earlier landscape session, but the users pointed out that the previous report only look for flat objects which is not much use on a sloping site. So the session took the report from the early session in tried to update…

  • Landmark_SIG_075 Special Interest Group July (pm) 2015

    In this session we wanted to look at the ability to create reports. In particular, the user wanted to look at how to create a report with areas of hardscapes along with volumes of hardscapes.

  • SST_1401 – Introduction to BIM with Vectorworks

    Introduction to BIM – BIM (Building Information Modeling) is not just about drawings, it is about the way you create your design. BIM is not so much about the model as it is about the activity of Building Information Modeling (creating the 3D, creating information and making that information available to…
