To qualify for the intermediate classroom training, candidates must have completed the Core Concepts class within the last two years or understand all of the following topics listed below. If you feel that you do not understand one or more of the topics, we strongly recommend that you take the Core Concepts training class first, as time will not be available to cover these core concepts in the intermediate class.
Attendees must know basic 2D and 3D drawing navigation (panning, standard views, 3D Flyover tool, zooming in and out), selecting, moving and resizing objects, standard tool behavior (single click, two click, three click and continuous clicking tools). Additionally, this training requires understanding, creating and editing surface objects, as well as editing container objects such as symbols, plug-in objects and viewport annotations.
Intermediate students must also be familiar with basic CAD layout methods such as layer scale, smart cursor cues, duplicate array, mirroring, offset and aligning objects, conventions of snaps and X, Y and Z coordinates. Also, drawing organization structures such as Layers, Classes, Sheet Layers and Viewports, along with understanding the purpose of the following Vectorworks palettes: Object Info Palette, Basic tool palette, Attributes palette, Resource Browser, View bar and the use of the heads-up display (floating data display bar).
