Topic:&nbsp:In this presentation you will see the overall scope of the Reshaper Plug-in presented by Ray Mullin, followed by a more in-depth dive into some of Reshaper's unique strengths.
Format:

• A quick overview of Reshaper's 30 dialogues showing the 2D &amp: 3D objects that can be edited, and the standard controls that are present in every dialogue.&nbsp:
• A closer look at 9 dialogues that offer more control than the stock Vectorworks user interface.
• Look at 2 pseudo objects, Regular Polygon and 3D Line, that Reshaper manages in ways Vectorworks does not.
• Examine a method used by Andy Dunning to quickly estimate LED tile usage, and/or truss sizes needed, for curved or cylindrical LED Walls, using Reshaper's Regular Polygon dialogue.
• Explore some examples using Reshaper to edit 3D objects to control the exact position, rotation and scale of Solids, Extrudes, Sweeps, Meshes, Symbols and PIOs using controls not available in the Object Info Palette (OIP).
• Q &amp: A as time permits

Presenter Bio:&nbsp:Ray Mullin is an electrical engineer who specializes in Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Design, and more recently, Advanced Integrated Circuit Packaging Design. Since 1990, Vectorworks, then MiniCAD, has been his CAD software of choice. Having the ability to script complicated tools to drive his design work is the glue that made it all possible.

“Green infrastructure” can be a broad term. But when applied to stormwater, it represents a way to get closer to your net zero landscape goals. Rain gardens, conservation landscapes, and tree plantings of appropriate species can be paired with designing for the water that’s present in your site. Water harvesting can also be added for a source of supplemental water, and green roofs can be your first line of defense when it comes to achieving net-zero water on your site.
This course is approved for one LA CES HSW PDH and APLD CEU.

Attendees will:
Learn how to define net-zero water landscapes.
Understand how to use rain gardens along with other green infrastructure concepts to reduce energy-dependent water use on sites. Understand historical solutions such as water harvesting and cool benches as tools to utilize to get net-zero water usage. Register
