Thanks for you help,

What are you looking for exactly? Parametric 3D-modeling, freeform modeling (NURBS-based), architecture, product design, ...?

Cheers,

I'm interested in tutorials as well. Nemetschek's documentation for 3d powerpack is meager to say the least. interested in product,display, exhibit design

Hi Peter,

Judging by your name you're either Flemish or Dutch. In that case you might be using a Benelux version of the software, including specialized (loalized) functions, which will speed up the process considerably. If that's the case, you can drop me an email at bart@designexpress.be and I'll see what I can do to explain.

Kind regards,

(of met vriendelijke groeten, zoals je wil)

Dag Peter,

You have two ways of creating 3D buildings in VectorWorks: either you use the layer system to stack the different parts of your building on top of each other. The fastest way to do this is by using walls, floors, columns, roofs and so on. You draw them in plan, and they exist in 3D.

Or you do it by hand, meaning that you build a model in the traditional way - like you would build a realworld 3D model, cutting out the walls out of some sheet material.

Both methods have their pros and cons, but the second method is the easiest one to start out with. It takes a bit of skill to use the first one, especially if you want to use the 2D-component as a plan representation as well.

To be complete: most of the time both methods are mixed. It almost always depends on the project and the amount of time that you have.

Have you ever built a 3D-model in VW before, or would this be the first time? And if you have, how did you proceed?

Kind regards,

BaRa

P.S.: if you're looking for someone who could give you some "decent" training, you could always get in touch with Nicoline from Enyacad - with my regards [smile]

First part of a tutorial at

la place bara

Choose VectorWorks, go to the end of the page where it says Crosslight.

WARNING: currently, it's Dutch only. Let me know if anyone wants it in a translated form.

Cheers,

BaRa

Edit: Second part of the tutorial has been added.

Rugged Ball & Peter

I have a hard copy of the VW8.5 instructions as to how to set up a simple House Model, I guess this no longer exists on the website. If you email me off forum at upj1@aol.com with your address I can mail you the instructions.

greetings all,

The Australian distributor of VW has a CD of tutorials covering from the basics to NURBS modeling and industry specifics (about 6hrs worth) for A$40 incl postage. (about EU$1 and a bag of potato chips I think the exchange rate comes out to)

It's not free, but nearly.......

go to

CD tutorial

cheers,

N.

Hi guys,

For what it's worth: 2 NURBS-related tutorials can be found on Design Express' website - go to www.designexpress.be and look in the support section. There's also a tutorial for visualising a VW model in C4D.

Warning: only Dutch.

Another NURBS-tutorial will be put online next week, which will show you how to model a chair.

Cheers,

BaRa

the Design Express web site is also in French.

You can copy the text of the tutorial and use a translator to follow the lesson.

Hi guys,

It will perhaps - I stress "perhaps" - be translated in French. It's rather technical, and not every translation office is able to transate this correctly. And I don't have the time to do it myself, so chances are it will never be translated at all. Keep in mind that most people in Belgium are at least bilangual, so even French speaking Belgians can at least understand those Dutch tutorials. Which means there's no real rush to make a translation.

They will without a doubt never be translated in English - again no time to do it. Of course, if NNA would request us to make a translation ... well that would of course change the picture ;-)

B.T.W.: the chair modeling tutorial has been put online.

Cheers,

BaRa
