&nbsp: VECTORWORKS INTERMEDIATE CONCEPTS TRAINING
Wednesday, July 31 - Thursday, August 1

&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, August 2. 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:

Description:&nbsp:
Building information modeling (BIM) is commonly considered to be about efficiency—but to what end? Rather than just designing more quickly, design more: design more deeply, design more thoughtfully, design more courageously. This webinar is intended to help architects toward alternative design possibilities, new opportunities beyond just executing designs whose conclusions are already baked in. Instead of “faster, better CAD,” BIM can support design processes where technique and methodology are in the service of better architecture. Through a series of case-study vignettes, BIM is shown to be far more than an improved documentation and sharing environment. The webinar concludes with an outline roadmap for practices transitioning to BIM.


Please note this is a sponsored webinar with Architectural Record.&nbsp:


Learning Objectives:
Describe the quantitative design opportunities that BIM offers and the value of applying them to the design process. Understand how building design information can be a powerful basis for architectural formal exploration. Identify the applicability of a BIM workflow to climate- and performance-oriented projects. Discuss specific cases demonstrating BIM's applicability to the optimized design of high-performance buildings. Register

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

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:
Site design professionals participating in this presentation will: 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. Register
