  1. Thanks for your insights. I also discovered the tool "model to floor plan" , which sort of skins walls on 3d volumes and create floor polylines, based on story config. I think that´s cool, because you can sketch 3d volumes, then transition to building elements
  2. Hello everyone: I would like to read some ideas about what would be the VW workflow from the very conceptual phase , to the creation of construction documents. Do you use 3d free modelling, and then use that model as a reference?, is it better to insert a sketch image ? or you just start modeling straight building elements . Or maybe just start creating the idea with the 2D tools, then, transition to 3D. thanks
  3. Tom, I guess not... check this video. They modeling a Niemeyer proyect. From a subdivision surface they magically create walls from those faces.
  4. Hello everyone: I was watching some promo videos of vectorworks architect, (or landscape) . In one of them walls and curtain walls are created from a conceptual model. I haven't found such tool. Is it possible? Thanks in advance
  5. Yes, I was able to model my first (small) residential project in VW using just 2 design layers and a bunch of classes. No stories by now. So far so good. This forum has been a great source of knowledge!
  6. That would be a great addition. Something like applying "Level configuration styles" to each level. Hey Jonathan, I enjoy a lot your videos on youtube. Thanks for sharing.
  7. Thanks a lot for the explanation. It seems that using layers only is the easiest way to organize your model.
  8. Hello everyone, I'm an architect and a begginer VW user. My previous experience is with Revit. I was through a lot of tutorials and gained some basic knowledge. When I started watching the BIM tutorials I was very confused. My question is very simple. What is the "right" or preferred BIM workflow in VW?. Layers or Stories?. Layers can have elevation, wall height, etc. But stories too! And to complicate things even more, stories can create additional layers (levels) . It seems also that walls top and bottom attachments can be controlled in both ways. Coming from Revit(which is a level based software), this can be very confusing. Thanks in advance.
