We strongly recommend that participants complete our Core Concepts class prior to taking the Spotlight Virtual Training course.
VECTORWORKS SPOTLIGHT VIRTUAL TRAINING
Virtual training offers the convenience of attending a class led by an industry expert from your own home or office. The content of this virtual, live class will be delivered in a lecture format.
The Vectorworks Spotlight Virtual Training class explores the workflow of creating a small corporate event. Starting with a blank file, the course covers best practices for organizing a document and creating the venue. It also includes instruction on how to incorporate seating layouts, video screens, speakers, light positions, lighting devices, and focus points, create presentation views, and extract data from objects into worksheets. If you choose to follow along on your own computer, progression files will be provided, so you can track the instructor’s keystrokes throughout the seminar.
OVERALL LEARNING GOALS
Create a small corporate event while learning about Layer and Class organization, importing DWG files, referencing data from other Vectorworks documents, drawing faster and more accurately, and utilizing the built-in, industry-specific tools and commands.
Attendees must have completed the Core Concepts Training Class or have an intermediate to advanced knowledge of 3D workflows. They should also understand the listed tools, palettes, and workspace environment in Vectorworks software. This includes 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). :
