best workflow template for drawings?


Recommended Posts


i currently have a workflow where i have one file for everything.. im experimenting with other workflows and saw nick sonders & 30x40s setup for inspiration but im wondering whats best for vectorworks

any ideas would be helpful while creating it! aslo quick question... can you reference viewports form other projects? so i can have a master detail file and reference it for every project?


current workflow

one file : draw / document all plans


concept workflow

one model file

one site file


one ducument file with all plan sheets and such that reference the model and site file



another concept workflow

one model file

one site file


several document files as follows


cover / project info sheets


all site plans


floor plans


sections & elevations

I have just one template. I think it would be really difficult to try to keep many templates up to date. Big projects will have big files, but I have not had the luck of getting huge projects. You can reference Design Layers into Design Layers (even when the original is in another drawing and "have a master detail file and reference it for every project") and then into Sheet Layers but not Sheet Layers from one drawing into Sheet Layers on another drawing.
