&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.

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
Windows machines preloaded with Vectorworks 2018 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:

Creating models or prototypes is not a novel concept in the building design world, but technological advances have taken this idea to new levels and created a surge of potential new opportunities. Influenced by other industries, such as automotive and machinery design, architects now engage in the process of rapid prototyping in their designs. By using a digital model as a basis for creating a physical model, either scaled or full size, these physical models can be made using a variety of materials. In this webinar, attendees will look at the link between digital and physical prototyping by exploring specific examples of architects who are using both to achieve their goals.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES:&nbsp:
Discover the ways that prototyping can be applied to architecture, engineering, and construction for structural, and space analysis.&nbsp: Identify the benefits of creating digital and actual prototypes throughout the design process, including those related to building safety and code compliance.&nbsp: Recognize how digital and actual prototypes can aid with land-use and site analysis, integration of building systems, and sustainability.&nbsp: Explore how algorithmic modeling can create rapid prototypes that can help increase design efficiency.&nbsp: Register
