Description:
Join Director Ricardo Ares and Landscape Architect Sam Bailey of Ares Landscape Architects Ltd for a webinar on migrating a medium-sized design practice from AutoCAD to Vectorworks Landmark. Ares and Bailey will focus on the significant benefits of making the move from general CAD workflows to landscape BIM workflows, and how the transition outweighs challenges. A case study example will be used throughout the presentation to demonstrate why Vectorworks is an invaluable tool for landscape architects.


Learning Objectives:
Understand why firms are increasingly being required by jurisdiction and clients to design more informedly, integrating BIM workflows for final product delivery. Learn how migrating to BIM workflows enables stronger collaboration between firms and other BIM clients, especially when using available model viewing and checking applications. Realize how integrated 2D/3D design with landscape-specific BIM tools can ensure better project design development. Recognize how integrated 3D design speeds up production in project documentation.

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, February 1. 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.
