Hi All- We're a small Landscape Architecture firm seeking to replace a long term employee who primarily served as a draftsperson and design assistant. We do a lot of local National Park work as well as residential design. We are looking for someone with experience in VW CAD drafting for concept drawings, assembling drawing sets for permit/bid and technical coordination with other consultants (mainly coordinating CAD backgrounds). We work mainly in 2D, but occcasionally require some site or other 3D modeling (but that 3D work is fairly rare). While we would prefer someone with training in a Landscape Architecture office, we can likely work well with a contract draftsperson who has experience with other types of design firms looking for a change. We have a good setup for CAD standards and templates and we're happy to talk with anyone who feels they can work well with us, remote is fine via cloud, but if you're local, we have an extra station and license as well in our office. The job listing is here on our website.
Hi, at our office we are using civil to make grading plans today. Although our plan was to start using VW landmark to do this. When we have been trialing this there are quite a few tools that we miss in VW which are our most important when we are putting out elevations and grades on our plans. For example in Civil, we can draw a line which at every vertex has an elevation. Every vertex we then can set a new height to, and the line and site will change. Further we can pick a group of these vertex and give them a slope, for example a "constant grade" along this line. See screen shot below to understand how it looks like in Civil. Another great tool is to be able to hover the cursor over an area and it then show us the elevation in one point immediately, as well as hover over a sloping area and it will tell you towards where and how much it slopes. Next thing id like to see in VW is to be able to have an area (such as a pad/hardscape/or just 3D lines) that in every corner can have different elevation values which you can edit. I understand that this is not desirable on floors in a building, but when planning landscapes the ground is hardly ever completely flat. I'd like to see a greater flexibility here. I've seen that aligned hardscapes has this modify surface tool, but for now it is not good enough. For example this is too hard to use because first you need to go inside the object to edit, secondly when putting out grades or stakes on it, the elevation resets to + 00.00 because then the object you are modifying is the 0. This is very annoying and difficult to understand unfortunately. Would it be possible to integrate these tools into vectorworks? Why haven't you already? Thanks alot! Elin
