• 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…

  • Architect Special Interest Group June 2016 (am)

    In this session we looked at detail viewports, linked viewports, the callout objects that control these viewports, sheet borders, using worksheets to report objects, and using the worksheets to control the objects.

  • Vectorworks Tip 392 – Copy Linked Viewports

    After you have created your linked viewports with the detail callout and with the detail reference, you can then copy and paste these objects onto other sections or elevations, and the links to the viewport will remain. This allows you to link several detail references or detail callouts to the same…

  • Vectorworks Tip 387 – How to Create a Linked Viewport With a Detail Callout

    This is almost the same as the detail reference, but you start with the Detail Callout object. With this object you have to draw the shape of the outline before you can link the viewport. If you set your preferences (by using the preference button on the Tool bar) before…

  • Vectorworks Tip 382 – How to Create a Linked Viewport With a Detail Reference

    You can create a linked viewport by using a detail reference object. On the Object Info palette, choose the viewport that you want to link to. Then, the viewport will be permanently linked to the reference. If you move the viewport from one sheet to another, or change the number…

  • Vectorworks Tip 377 – Linked Viewports – Concept

    The concept is that you can create a reference object in your plans, sections, or elevations, and link this object to a viewport (maybe a detail) on a different sheet layer. When you update the number of the detail or move the detail from one sheet to another the drawing…

  • Vectorworks Tip 372 – Viewports – Where should I Put The Annotations?

    I try to make sure that I use a consistent system for annotations. My preference is to keep as much work as possible on the design layers but this is not possible for some viewports. Elevations, sections, and detail viewports do not allow you to put this information on the…

  • Vectorworks Tip 355 – Copy Viewport Attibutes

    If you choose the appropriate settings with the eyedropper tool, you can copy the viewport attributes from one viewport to another. This includes copying layer and class visibility is, render settings, et cetera.
