    Welcome fellow Vectorworks Users, This month we will discuss :Rendered Panoramas During our January meeting we will be discussing the new capability in Vectorworks 2018 of Rendered Panoramas. We will walk through steps to creating interactive 360 degree views of your design models. Are you looking to immerse your clients in your design proposal? Do you have a new social media initiative for your business this year? Let's explore together how to create some interactive and immersive renderings for your portfolio and how to place them in your favorite social media feeds. Future meeting topics are TBD and guided by popular demand. :Make your topic suggestions for future meetings during registration. Meeting details and topic summaries will be shared with registered attendees and group members prior to the meeting. Interested in sharing with the group? Opportunities for :Guest Presenter- Volunteers :are also welcomed at registration. Simply select this Registration type instead of Participant. Guest Presenter roles closed for this month? Volunteer at registration for a future date to show your interest. We look forward to sharing with you! SincerelyJacob Dale :Founder at Tangably.com &: your VWX User Group Leader :Register

    Topic:&nbsp:Vectorworks Tips, Tricks, and Time Savers Vectorworks is a rich and robust 3D/3D CAD/BIM platform, and many times there are multiple methods for achieving a desired drawing or modeling result. Indeed, flexibility is one of Vectorworks' key traits, and the reason many of us use it. New features are constantly being introduced and old ones refined, and it's challenging to stay&nbsp:au courrant. Add to that, many of us are self-taught: so it's easy for any user to get stuck in a rut, doing tasks the same old way even when there's a faster method. This month, we'll look at a variety of time saving tools, commands, tips and tricks—some new, some old. Because after all,&nbsp:time is money. Register

    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. BEST SUITED FOR: All Industries Skill Level: Basic/Intermediate Register
