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.

The Site Modelling course is suitable for architects, landscape architects and garden designers.
Sites are rarely flat and you may need to be able to access the impact of a design on a real representation of the terrain. The site modelling tools within Vectorworks Architect and Vectorworks Landmark are extremely powerful and will help you understand how a proposed landscape design of building will sit within the landscape. It will also enable you to gain cut and fill estimates based on your design proposals.&nbsp:
AGENDA
Learn how to use your own survey data, or data from a surveyor to create a model of the existing terrain Use the site analysis tools to gain a better understanding of the land before making initial design decisions Use the Site Modifier and Grade tools to create new flat areas, insert new spot heights and reshape contours Create roadways, paths, paved areas, retaining walls and accommodate steps Align design features to the surface of the model, including plants, buildings, and simple roads Report accurate spot levels on the model Create sections of the model Access cut and fill requirements for the whole model or specific areas COURSE PRE-REQUISITES
It is essential that you already have an understanding of the 3D environment within Vectorworks, and an understanding of 2D/3D hybrid tools within Vectorworks Landmark or Vectorworks Architect. This knowledge can be gained from the following courses:

Description:Climate change and sustainable design are at the forefront of today's conversation. When doing sustainable and energy-efficient design, integrated design tools can help you be more efficient and make quicker decisions during design phases. In this webinar, attendees will learn how to assess the energy performance of a building very early on in an integrated design process — this gives architects the power to make informed design decisions, as well as the ability to back those decisions up.&nbsp:
Learning objectives: Discover the benefits of integrating energy performance evaluation into architectural design workflows. Explore how a building's form and shape affect its energy performance. Learn how various shading percentages and different types of shading can guide your design decision based on expected building performance. Evaluate energy performance changes based on building elements, boundary conditions, and U-values. Register

    

This two day course is ideal for interior and retail designers, regardless of whether you are using Vectorworks Architect, or Vectorworks Spotlight. The course will look at how to start with an initial survey, to creating a simple interior scene with 2D and 3D views.
AGENDA
Import an external file from an architect or client, and ensure it's the correct scale/size. Model architectural features, such as, walls, doors, windows and stairs. Create kitchen and bathroom layouts with the Vectorworks cabinetry tool and symbol libraries. Create lighting and circuiting plans using specialist Vectorworks tools. Use built in data within the model to produce door, window, and room finish schedules. Use simple 3D modelling techniques to create bespoke objects and props, such as, items of furniture. Create basic lighting and rendering. COURSE PRE-REQUISITES
