With more technology available to interior and architectural designers, the traditional approach to developing commercial projects is moving to exciting levels.
Your workflow is no longer just about providing 2D drawings and details; great visualizations and smart take-offs can all be a part of your design process. BIM for interiors is a more thoughtful way to design, organize, and face today’s challenges in the industry.
In this presentation — inspired by an elegant retail interiors project located in Tokyo by designers Mana & Takashi Kobayashi, IMA Inc. — Luis M. Ruiz, Int. Assoc. AIA, will discuss how you can increase your efficiency and win more work with an integrated data-driven 3D modeling process.

Learning Objectives:
• Discover how data-driven workflows can impact the project’s bottom line by integrating a more effective design process.
• Understand the use and benefits of interior-specific parametric tools that you need to optimize the creation of your design presentations and project documentation. 
• Learn how to effectively set up and organize a project file to streamline the adoption of a 3D workflow. 
• Explore the differences between 2D and 3D approaches for your design process, and learn how you can better implement a 3D workflow for your firm.

In this webinar, Wajda will share why he switched to Vectorworks, the value of his onboarding process, and a walkthrough of some of his recent projects.
Learning Objectives:
The importance of Vectorworks’ onboarding process.
The value of 3D modeling and rendering.
The importance of drawing with detail-rich objects.

Description:
Join us as we take a look at the Plant Tool.We will look at the tools of various plant placement modes along with plant styles in the Vectorworks libraries and how we can create our own plant.
Learning Objectives:

Go through the plant placement modes of the plant tool. Explore the Vectorworks plant libraries. Create your own plant including the 2D graphics and add an image prop to represent the 3D graphics.

Description:
Visualizations are an integral facet of landscape design. Everyone has a different approach, from continuing to embrace the more time-intensive hand-drawn methods, while others utilize CAD paired with 3D modeling and image-editing technology. Although each of these are successful to some degree - revisions are inevitable, and the time it takes to reconstruct these illustrations in multiple software’s can be greatly reduced by fine-tuning the design in a single application.Join us to witness the power and efficiencies gained by 3D modeling in Vectorworks Landmark and gain an understanding of how to build various features found on a proposed site while using a combination of landscape-specific tools and commonly used 3D modeling processes. Communication is essential for the success of any project, and the mention of “revisions” shouldn’t cause fear of going over budget.
Learning Objectives:
Understand the benefits of using landscape-specific tools during your 3D modeling workflow. Learn and master commonly used 3D modeling processes to create custom objects. Explore how designers communicate with clients and contractors in a more immersive way using virtual reality with the Vectorworks Nomad application and/or Web View. Recognize the main benefit of reducing the revision challenges by working in a single file through modeling and rendering. Register

Modern design software is a tool for remote collaboration, intuitive visualization, and efficient coordination. With projects around the world, Flansburgh has developed a BIM- centric workflow to work remotely with clients, consultants, and contractors. Vectorworks, our primary architectural authoring software, is the centerpiece of this process. This session will explore VR prototyping with The Wild, 3D visualization with Twinmotion, and coordination with Revizto.

Learning Objective

- Discuss how routine file exchange enables a seamless workflow between multiple design tools.
- Experience VR prototyping to explore design concepts intuitively with remote stakeholders.
- Experience how 3D visualization and VR provide visual feedback for a compelling interactive experience.
- Discover the power of cloud-based issue tracker which allows for real-time project coordination.Register

The Vectorworks Embodied Carbon Calculator provides you with the ability to assess embodied carbon emissions through a project’s lifecycle. The analysis looks at individual materials, a project’s lifecycle stages, and benchmarks for set targets. During the webinar, attendees will hear of standards, guidance, and legislation that drive the embodied carbon to the front of the sustainable construction conversation. Stefanovic will demonstrate assessing the carbon footprint of a design with built-in tools that enable regular evaluations during the design process. With the Vectorworks Embodied Carbon Calculator, you’ll have the power to gather metrics and make informed decisions as you look to achieve carbon-reducing targets.
Learning Objectives:
• Explain the concept of embodied carbon and whole life cycle carbon assessment.
• List the project lifecycle stages.
