    Building Information Modeling (BIM) and new BIM-solutions and -applications will change the building industry and similar branches explicitly.
    BIM World presents user-related solutions around building information modeling: from the 28th and 29th November, more than 120 exhibitors and over 80 speakers showcased the chances and options BIM has as a standard and driver of technologies to the more than 3000 people visiting the event at the ICM Munich.
    Building Information Modeling represents the digitalization and process optimizations of the whole building industry. BIM and digital models have become the main driving force behind innovation and performance in the construction industry, urban planning and regional development. BIM World MUNICH brings together the entire BIM ecosystem and is the gathering for all engaged sector players.

    VECTORWORKS CORE CONCEPTS TRAINING
    Monday, November 26 - Tuesday, November 27

    COURSE DESCRIPTION
    This is the best hands-on training option to learn how to utilize tools, menu commands, and drawing organization found in Vectorworks software. Core Concepts starts from the ground up, teaching you all of the necessary basics needed to become a Vectorworks pro. Make use of 2D and 3D modeling techniques from the start and learn the entry points and correct workflows to help master the Vectorworks platform.
    &nbsp:
    OVERALL LEARNING GOALS

    Drawing fast, keeping accurate, incorporating easy-to-use drawing structures, employing modern Vectorworks techniques and concepts.
    &nbsp:
    PREREQUISITES&nbsp:
    Those considering classroom training must understand basic drafting concepts, such as plan and elevation projections, scale and actual size, and drawing units. Attendees must also be comfortable with operating either a Macintosh or Windows computer system, as well as understand basic mouse operations such as single click, double click, click and drag, scroll wheel, right click, and two click operations. Attendees would also need to know basic keyboarding, including use of the Spacebar, Tab, Control, Alt, Shift, Delete, Command (Mac), and Option (Mac) keys.

    &nbsp: VECTORWORKS INTERMEDIATE CONCEPTS TRAINING
    Wednesday, November 28 - Thursday, November 29

    &nbsp:
    COURSE DESCRIPTION
    Take your Vectorworks knowledge to the next level! The Intermediate Concepts course is the best hand-on training option to help you become proficient with information modeling and integrating 2D drafting skills with 3D modeling. Learn how to extract data from any object and list the information automatically in a worksheet. Improve your workflow and graphic output of your construction documents and presentation renderings. Also, learn more about layer and class organization, as well as advanced techniques with viewports and section viewports.
    &nbsp:
    OVERALL LEARNING GOALS
    To employ Vectorworks conventions and concepts to incorporate the next level of information modeling into each phase of your design workflow.
    &nbsp:
    PREREQUISITES

    To qualify for Intermediate Concepts classroom training, candidates must have completed the Core Concepts class within the last two years or understand all of the following topics listed below. If you feel that you do not understand one or more of the topics, we strongly recommend that you take the Core Concepts training class first, as time will not be available to cover these Core Concepts in the Intermediate class.
    Attendees must know basic 2D and 3D drawing navigation (e.g., panning, standard views, 3D Flyover tool, and zooming in and out), selecting, moving and resizing objects, as well as standard tool behavior (e.g., single click, two click, three click, and continuous clicking tools). Additionally, this training requires understanding, creating, and editing surface objects, as well as editing container objects such as symbols, plug-in objects, and viewport annotations.
    Intermediate students must also be familiar with basic CAD layout methods such as layer scale, smart cursor cues, duplicate array, mirroring, offset and aligning objects, conventions of snaps, and X, Y and Z coordinates. Also required is a knowledge of drawing organization structures such as layers, classes, sheet layers and viewports, along with understanding the purpose of the following Vectorworks software palettes: Object Info palette, Basic palette, Attributes palette, Resource Browser, View bar, and the use of the heads-up display (i.e., floating data display bar).

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
    **Be sure to take advantage of the "Bonus" Day of training on Friday, November 30. This is an informal training day intended for participants to ask questions and further explore Vectorworks.
    Computers preloaded with current Vectorworks software will be provided for each classroom training attendee. Workshop participants who would like to work on their own machine are required to bring their own laptop or desktop computer with the software installed. The software may either be your own registered license, or you may obtain and install a functional 30-day evaluation copy prior to arriving for the course. We will not issue refunds due to malfunctions of software installed on personal laptops. The course instructor is not available or responsible to troubleshoot or service personal laptops, nor is the trainer responsible for technical problems experienced during the course due to personal computer hardware or software malfunctions. Detailed information on how to download the software will be emailed to you and can be found in your registration confirmation.&nbsp:
