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 2019 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.

VECTORWORKS SPOTLIGHT VIRTUAL TRAINING
Virtual training offers the convenience of attending a class led by an industry expert from your own home or office. The content of this virtual, live class will be delivered in a lecture format.
We strongly recommend that participants complete our Core Concepts class prior to taking the Spotlight Virtual Training course.
COURSE DESCRIPTION
The Vectorworks Spotlight Virtual Training class explores the workflow of creating a small corporate event. Starting with a blank file, the course covers best practices for organizing a document and creating the venue. It also includes instruction on how to incorporate seating layouts, video screens, speakers, light positions, lighting devices, and focus points, create presentation views, and extract data from objects into worksheets. If you choose to follow along on your own computer, progression files will be provided, so you can track the instructor’s keystrokes throughout the seminar.

OVERALL LEARNING GOALS
Create a small corporate event while learning about Layer and Class organization, importing DWG files, referencing data from other Vectorworks documents, drawing faster and more accurately, and utilizing the built-in, industry-specific tools and commands.

PREREQUISITES
Attendees must have completed the Core Concepts Training Class or have an intermediate to advanced knowledge of 3D workflows. They should also understand the listed tools, palettes, and workspace environment in Vectorworks software. This includes 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).

Description:&nbsp:
GIS and CAD workflows have taken place in parallel realms for many years, with the functionalities rarely overlapping. Until recently, exchanging these files for maximum benefits would have been limited to overlaying exported GIS images in design files, or manually digitizing shapes into the drawing file. This course will discuss how site design software solutions not only could help import and export GIS files, but also to manage data rich files and use them for file development —&nbsp:from conceptualization through design development to construction drawings.&nbsp:

Learning Objectives:&nbsp:
• Learn how GIS files can be utilized in creating base files within CAD workflows and continue to be useful in each stage of site design.&nbsp:
• Discover how imported GIS file geometry can be modified, either by referencing its data, producing studies, or including 3D models for further analysis and presentations.&nbsp:
• Understand that the planning work produced within site design software can be exported as shapefiles or georeferenced images to be incorporated into GIS workflows.

There is an increasing need for a structure, display, enclosure, or interactive space that can be temporary, flexible, and adaptable for different people, uses, or times. This temporary architecture, sometimes referred to as "pop up" architecture, allows for great creativity and potential time and cost savings during the construction process. This webinar will look at some ways pop-up architecture has been developed, used, and admired around the world.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
Discover the history and motivation behind creating temporary architecture for habitable and non-habitable spaces.&nbsp: Explore the design challenges of innovative approaches to material usage, experimentation, and progressive design solutions.&nbsp: Recognize the positive environmental implications of temporary architecture, including disassembling, reuse, and recycling.&nbsp: Identify the ways pop-up architecture concepts are being integrated into permanent and semipermanent structures in code-compliant manners.&nbsp: Sponsored by Architectural Record&nbsp:
