Register for our upcoming 4-part Vectorworks Landmark training course, Feb 15 - Mar 8 2022.
LANDMARK PART 1
Start your project by familiarising yourself with your file organisation and importing your survey.Learn how to draw out existing buildings with the Building Shell tools and neighbouring buildings with Massing Model. From your know point learn various setting out methods to mark out survey points for existing features.OBJECTIVES
File Organisation (Recap) DWG Import Use the Building Shell tools to create a building Use triangulation to mark our points Use the Arc tool as a compass Learn various ways to mark out points from a tape LANDMARK PART 2
Complete the survey by adding in a simple ground, existing trees, and fences. Once you have your existing survey, perform a shadow analysis to determine the best planting locations in your design. Then it's time for the star of the show - the Vectorworks Plant tool!OBJECTIVES
Create a simple ground Add Existing Trees Use the Railing Fence tool Use the Heliodon tool for shadow analysis Placing Plants with the Plant tool modes Locating the existing Plant libraries Edit and Create your own Plants Create your own 2D and 3D Plant graphics LANDMARK PART 3
Use your favourite plants to create plant mixes with the Landscape area tool and drape them across your site models. Create a paving paradise with Hardscapes for your hard landscaping. Automatically align your hardscapes in complex paving situations. These two tools use components to help with detailing, reporting, and cut and fill calculations.Find and place Site Furniture from the Vectorworks Libraries as well as learn how to create your own custom objects!OBJECTIVES
Create a Landscape Area Define your own plant mix with a Landscape Area style Create a Hardscape Define your own paving construction with a Hardscape Style Report and tag your Landscape Areas and Hardscapes Locate Objects in the Resource Manager Create your own custom object LANDMARK PART 4
Present your designs with Sheet layers and viewports. Create Section viewports to slice through your model anywhere and Detail viewports to focus on areas of your design. Add mood boards and annotate your designs at any scale. You'll also have somewhere to put all those lovely plant reports for printing out!OBJECTIVES
Create a Sheet Layer Create Plan, Elevation and Perspective viewports Create a Section viewport Create a Detail viewport Annotate your viewports Add Images Place Reports Tag Objects Register

    

Architects need to produce drawings that are both graphically accurate and full of information, which means that everyday documentation processes need to be adjusted to meet these requirements while saving time and money. In this presentation, you’ll learn how rendering tools and feature sets can be used to enhance the graphic quality of your designs, letting you not only impress your client, but also more accurately communicate your design intent with contractors and project stakeholders. Attendees will explore these rendering best practices through sample workflows that showcase cutting-edge technologies in the architecture industry.
Learning Objectives:
Define basic rendering techniques for creating typical architectural views (i.e. plans, sections, elevations). Evaluate the uses of surface hatches as material textures applied to external building surfaces with hidden line renders in everyday workflows. Examine the applications of foreground renders versus background renders in viewports. Explore the additional features available in rendering software (i.e. gradients, transparencies, Image Effect, etc.). Register

Description:
BIM for landscape is possible thanks to powerful software being utilized in the landscape design industry today. In Norway, policies have come a long way in ensuring a standard for IFC as we know it today. In this presentation, we’ll cover how BIM for landscape has evolved and shaped our way of site design for the last 15+ years, the standardization of open BIM and IFC for landscape, and explore this information in project examples – all the while evaluating design software’s place throughout current workflows.
Learning Objectives:
Explore projects that have utilized BIM for landscape since 2005 while analyzing successes and flaws. Learn how national standards for BIM for landscape are continuing to develop, providing more support and guidance for practitioners being required to include BIM in their product delivery. Investigate design software that delivers open BIM to landscape professionals. Register
