When projects move from concept drawings to construction documents, details have to be drawn to show how components relate to each other. It is tempting to use the 3D model to create all the details. This works for sections, not for details. Details need to show the components separated or exploded so that they are readable. Line weights and notes are critical. In this session, we will learn the best ways to create details and incorporate them into a drawing set with Vectorworks Architect

Designers that want to: learn how to draw details in Vectorworks; learn how to keep water out of a building; import manufacturer's pdf or dxf/dwg drawings do not know how to place detail references and link them to detail viewports.
