From 2D Drawing to BIM with Vectorworks
Recorded on Aug 18, 2016
Many users have a 2-D only philosophy to drawing in Vectorworks Architect 2018
. This is a slow way to draw and it is also prone to errors. Using them principles means drawing in 3D which can seem to take a long time at first, but after the first project you will find this method is faster and it avoids the errors that the 2D only workflow has. There is no doubt in my mind that using a Building Information Modelling workflow is by far the most productive way of creating drawings. As you will learn form this webinar, there are several speed advantages in building the 3D model. Initially, you might find that it is slightly slower as you learn to use walls, doors, windows, slabs, and other BIM objects, but as you use these more often, you will speed up to the point that it is just as quick to draw these objects as it was to draw them previously.
setting up a project for 3D working
setting up building elements
using the model to create drawings
in this webinar you will learn:
why modelling is more efficient and has fewer errors
how to set up your projects for modeling
how to set up drawings using the model
The webinar is free and lasts about one hour, including the Q&A session.
Who is Presenting the Webinar
is an architect trained in New Zealand and in the UK, with more than 30 years of experience.
