Basic BIM stuff

Recommended Posts

Anyone knows where to find some decent tutorials about BIM?

The vectorworks 2015 commercials are telling how intuitive and awesome BIM is in Vectorworks but I can't even find a tutorial that describes how to connect a slab with a wall.

Sometimes I succeed in making wall and floor connect but as soon as I move 1 side of the slab out of the wall all connections are lost.

Have you "auto connect walls" OFF ?

I think that has to be set to ON,

otherwise you will generally loose any connections when moving something.

It's worth to try.

I learned this about walls some weeks ago for the first time.

I also always lost wall slab connections in the past so i do my slabs

How do you do the slabs manually? Just protrude them into the structural part of the wall?

I create slabs by walls, bucket or polygons.

I mean I edit them manually.

As I always lost my connection to walls sooner or later.

But that might have been the auto connect setting which

I usually have off because my wall connections needed to

be done manually most of the case.

But I will try again soon.
