  2. Not sure where else to make such a request about Vw University training sessions, I thought I would start a thread of a call for topics to be covered in future Service Select ‘Coffee Break’ online training sessions. The first one I would like to see is: Elevation Benchmark tool introduced in 2023: I would like to see covered how to modify existing EBM styles (make a left-hand aligned one to be a right-hand aligned EBM), how to add criteria, how to use in a 3D design layer, how to add them to a SLVP through the OIP and Manually, etc. Perhaps others will have suggestions for topics they would like to see covered in future sessions.
  3. I've been using Vectorworks Landmark for a long time but really only for 2D purposes and I'm now really trying to get a grasp on the 3D capabilities and some of the features that I feel like Vectorworks is really pushing. I work in high end residential landscape architecture and many of our sites are sloping and complex. We use a lot of irregular materials and custom items so I often get frustrated with some of the tutorials that over simplify the process by using a completely flat site and pretty standard materials. At the risk of being too long winded, I'm wondering if there are any definitive training guides on the 3D modeling and a good workflow process to get started with this. I've played around and made a few site models but I'm having a hard time understanding when I should be using hardscapes or site modifiers etc... etc... I feel like I could post a million questions on here and maybe they've already been answered so I'll snoop around but I feel like it's all very overwhelming. Thanks!
  4. Hi All, I've just discovered the VW has posted the Braceworks presentation I did at the Design Summit back in 2018. It's a follow along type thing so there are questions and answers being done live. The working files for the session are also posted. 90% of the stuff shown can be done without the Braceworks add-on. Braceworks from 2018 Summit You'll need to log in to see the course. Some items are a little out of date as I did the session using VW 2019 and there have been improvements in 2020. I'm looking forward to see what fixes await in 2021. Best, Scott
  5. Reading through the Vw2020 Help File about New Features, I came across the following description under the section about ‘Architectural template and styles updates as a result of improved workflows’: http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/VW2020_Guide/Structure/Workflow_Model_setup_with_stories.htm#XREF_78064_Model_setup_with Since this is a departure from the recommended workflow in previous Vw versions, I think a video tutorial explaining the changes to the recommended workflow is warranted. Thanks. [EDIT: As a side note- the hand-drawn sketch of the Levels / Stories diagram on that Help page is pretty low-resolution quality and looks like it was taken by a hand-held camera. As an architectural floor construction sketch, it doesn’t make any sense: What is the part at the lower left? Where are the foundations for the part on the right? Why are the two parts offset and separated? This sketch is more confusing than helpful. A better quality, more legible sketch would be welcome. In addition to a video tutorial. Thanks.]
  6. I am pleased to announce that I have completely updated and expanded these courses for 2019: Foundation Course BIM (Building Information Model) Foundation Course The purpose of this course is to teach you the basic concepts of Vectorworks. It is always tempting to try to avoid these basic concepts, but these are the ones that make you truly effective at Vectorworks. It is tempting to try and avoid this course and go to a more advanced one, but that is a mistake. This is the course you need if you really want to use Vectorworks effectively. It is important therefore to work through all the movies and exercises. You may not understand why you are learning a specific technique – but trust me – to use Vectorworks effectively you will need to learn that technique. I know that you want to make progress as soon as possible – I want that too! I have taught thousands of people to use Vectorworks effectively using the manual that this course is based upon. They have become very effective at using Vectorworks because they worked through all the exercises. Over 8 hours of video. Vectorworks Building Information Modeling (Architect) 2019 Many people talk about BIM these days, it is an important way to create drawings. This course is an introduction to using Building Information Modeling with Vectorworks Architect and it has been designed to teach you the concepts of BIM and how to use the Vectorworks Architect in the most productive way. It has all been brought together in a concise course. In this course, you will draw a simple two-story project that will teach you the basics of BIM. We will start with first principles and work through creating a Building Model that will allow us to create plans, sections, and elevations. We will progress through site modeling, solar studies, rendering 3D views, internal room elevations, and details. Over 11 hours of video.

  10. Hello Renderings aficionados. Last week we participated on a new AIA webinar, this time we focused on taking a BIM model, tailored it and created several renderings from it. Here we explained the process and the recommended steps to achieve decent presentations. Check it out when you can, I guarantee you'll learn a trick or two. Plus you may be eligible for a one AIA learning education point. Here is the link: http://www.vectorworks.net/inspiration/industry-webinars/see-it-to-believe-it-next-level-rendering-techniques
  11. I've used Vectorworks since it was known as MiniCad. However, 90% of what I do in Vectorworks is 2D. I've actually started using Chief Architect for residential BIM since it seemed to fit residential more directly - using Vectorworks primarily for concept work and graphic presentations. Id love to learn more about residential BIM inside Vectorworks. Are there any good sources for this? Thanks in advance.
  12. there is a free webinar coming up this week about the Resource Manager. you can find more details here... https://novedge.com/webinar/232
  13. This year I have create a new series of courses for Vectorworks 2017: Vectorworks Fundamentals Vectorworks Architect Vectorworks Landmark Vectorworks 3D Modeling In the past I have heard complaints about The Vectorworks manuals being too slow to be released, requiring a lot of reading, and the cost of international shipping. I believe that these new courses will solve this. In the past my manuals have helped thousands of people to learn and use Vectorworks effectively. These new courses are the next step. You can read more about these courses on the attached PDF. archoncad_Vectorworks_2017_Courses.pdf
  14. Marionette was introduced with the intention that non-programmers could learn to use it without having any previous programming knowledge. Personally, I have not found that to be the case. This may be partially because Marionette is still very new and not fully documented, but even if it were, it seems like Marionette's current implementation requires quite a bit of programming knowledge as evidenced by many of the threads in this Marionette forum. It is not in any way user-friendly or intuitive for the 'programming newbie'. Watching any of the thousands of tutorial videos on Grasshopper or Dynamo won't get you very far with Marionette. The written content and presentation on the Vw Dev Wiki has always been intended for a target audience of developers and programmers. It requires a good working knowledge of VS and Python to understand any part of it, and probably most Vw users have no need to ever visit it. In addition to being very 'code heavy', the Dev Wiki is also very 'text heavy', without many pictures or diagrams. Graphically, it is the exact opposite of what the training material for a graphical scripting language like Marionette should look like. Just providing a single-page listing the name and simple description of each node is not enough (especially since it's the same info that you get by clicking on the Node's OIP 'Description' button). We need to have examples of how to use each node including what are its accepted inputs and its expected outputs. The Marionette - Implement a Node page, which I believe is intended to be 'Introductory 101' level, is very heavy into required programming with lots of Python code. Personally, I did not find that page to be very intuitive or helpful; I became lost before I even started. The six Introductory video tutorials posted here are a good start - and certainly more of these videos will be welcome, but... What I think is needed is a separate, dedicated 'Marionette Primer' website along the lines of the Dynamo Primer. Simply putting more info on the Dev Wiki is not the best way to further expand knowledge about Marionette.
