1. ## important question

Ok, i will simplify my question: one can have plans, elevations, sections(!?) put on the sheet and have them 'connected' to 3D model? (drawings update after change to 3D model)? I opened NW_House in demo version of VectorWorks i have, it has all drawings on 'sheets', i can draw on top of them, but there's no 3D model? What about coordination between drawings (plans, elevations), like i said for example 15-story building? T.K.

Well i need to ask again... Give me example on how you typically design a house. Say i make approximate 3D model. Now i need a plan(s) - so do i need to measure a model and draw them separately? What if i have 15-story house and need 15 plans and keep them coordinated? Well, sections can be drawn separately, but if it aplies to plans and elevations, thats no fun.. Tom

Thanks.

Thanks.
9. ## important question

thinking of starting using VectorWorks for my architectural work. One thing is unclear to me - is it model-centric software, like in other software - you first design 3D model, from which you get plans, sections, elevations. Or in VW you work separately on 2D and 3D. Is there advantages using VW, compared to high-end 2D program for 2D, and 3D modeler/ renderer for 3D? Thanks for your reply.. Tom
