Quick Conceptual Modeling
with Vectorworks 2011
Recorded on Apr 13, 2011
There are some users that use other programs to create a conceptual model, and they only use Vectorworks later. Vectorworks guru Jonathan Pickup
believes that you can do all your work in Vectorworks, and it will be quicker if you do. In this webinar we will look at quick ways to make a 3D site model, create 3D recession planes for the site, and sketch in the adjoining buildings. This will make it easy for use to see the 3D volume we can build in, and the effects of the neighbouring buildings. That way, as we develop our concept, we can test it on the site, as well as checking the sun and shading. Vectorworks has quick ways to create our conceptual model, and we will look at a couple of different options.
The webinar is free and lasts about one hour, including the Q&A session.
