HIDDEN TREASURES IN VECTORWORKS
When learning to use Vectorworks, or any software for that matter, we are likely to focus on learning how to use just what we need to complete a project. Over time, we may believe we know how to use the application to its fullest extent but have only scratched the surface of what is possible. In this session, the Vectorworks training team will guide you through finding those gems (tools/commands) that will make your design process more efficient. They will also change your perspective on how and when to use certain Vectorworks features that you may already use regularly.
BEST SUITED FOR:
All Industries
Skill Level: Basic/Intermediate

&nbsp: VECTORWORKS INTERMEDIATE CONCEPTS TRAINING
Thursday, June 6 - Friday, June 7

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.
View the list of topics covered.
&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
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. 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:

Topic:&nbsp:Vectorworks Tips, Tricks, and Time Savers

Vectorworks is a rich and robust 3D/3D CAD/BIM platform, and many times there are multiple methods for achieving a desired drawing or modeling result. Indeed, flexibility is one of Vectorworks' key traits, and the reason many of us use it. New features are constantly being introduced and old ones refined, and it's challenging to stay&nbsp:au courrant. Add to that, many of us are self-taught: so it's easy for any user to get stuck in a rut, doing tasks the same old way even when there's a faster method. This month, we'll look at a variety of time saving tools, commands, tips and tricks—some new, some old. Because after all,&nbsp:time is money.
