Vectorworks BIM classes: Bay Area and Pittsburgh

Recommended Posts

I have a Vectorworks BIM workshop coming up this weekend (August 1-2) in the Bay Area, with another in Pittsburgh on August 15-16. Here's a link: http://is.gd/1dcIX.


The BIM Workshop is intended for users of Vectorworks ARCHITECT or DESIGNER (and even FUNDAMENTALS) who wish to integrate intelligent models into their design and documentation workflow. Topics covered include:

* Using hybrid 2D and 3D parametric objects such as site models, walls, windows, doors, stairs, etc.

* File organization and maximizing the effectiveness of classes, design and sheet layers, and viewports for efficiently extracting views of a building model

* General 3D modeling

* Embedding data in hybrid objects and generating tabular views (reports) such as door and window schedules, area takeoffs, and performance calculations

* Team collaboration using workgroup references, including integrating DWG (AutoCAD files) in your workflow, and importing and exporting IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) files

For a preview of projects demonstrating some of these principles (and others) please see these two online movies (approximately 40 minutes in length each):



Macintosh workstations will be available for all participants, and participants are welcome to bring their own laptops with Vectorworks installed. Fast-paced and comprehensive, this training is helpful to Vectorworks users wanting to take their expertise to the next level. For more information, email me info AT francoislevy DOT com
