Quickstart to Vectorworks Architect Part 2 - Drawings
April 27, 2022
What it's About
In part one we looked at Vectorworks Architect and how we can use the tools and techniques of Architects to quickly create a 3-D model of the building. In this webinar we will take that building and create drawings from it. In order to create the drawings, we will use layers, classes, viewports, and sheet layers. We will also learn some powerful techniques to change the graphic style of objects once we've created the viewport. We will also look at the fundamental concept of using the three-dimensional model to create the drawings. We will create floor plans, foundation plans, elevations, and sections. We will edit the title block to add our logo. We will learn how to control the graphics and these drawings and we will create 3D views of the building for the cover sheet.
The webinar is free and lasts about one hour, including the Q&A session.
