Modelling with VECC loaded Materials

Recommended Posts

Hi All, I am trying to implement VECC in architectural projects to assess the embodied carbon of the project.


I have opened the user guide and downloaded the file to acesss the live worksheet and all the pre set materials in the resource manager in Vectorworks . However what I am having trouble with is actually selecting the materials in the resource manager to model with. 


In the resource manager under VECC I can see all the materials, however when drawing a wall I can't actually select the desired material. Am I missing something? 


I am wanting to be able to model walls and select/assign the preloaded compound material that has all the info loaded to sync with the live sheet. 


If I model a standard 90 stud wall and want to change that to one of the materials from VECC how can I DO that iF it won't come up in my resource manager? 


Thank you so much for anyone who can help!
