Best way to draw furniture on a large BIM project

Recommended Posts

What is the best i.e. most effective, efficient and manageable way to draw furniture using Vectorworks architect BIM on a large 500 apartment project? This is includes bathrooms, kitchens, beds, chairs and tables, which will all be identically replicated 100s of times and are likely to require ongoing editing.

 

We will need to show them on GA plans at 1:50, but not necessarily on the section drawings. We also need to provide kitchen and bathroom layouts at 1:20. Should we reference these directly from the same model or draw these separately? 

 

Thanks

Symbols.  it will cut down on the lag and file size since you will have so many instances of each.  and you can class the symbols so that the class can be turned on or off for the different views that you will need.  you can probably find many of the symbols you need already included with Vectorworks libraries.
