VECTORWORKS ARCHITECT VIRTUAL TRAINING
Monday, October 21 - Friday, October 25
1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Virtual training offers the convenience of attending a class led by an industry expert from your own home or office. The content of this virtual, live class will be delivered in a lecture format.
The Vectorworks Architect Virtual Training demonstrates creating a residential model from the ground up. Instructor Wes Gardner, an architectural industry expert at Nemetschek Vectorworks, will begin the seminar with instruction on best practices for file setup; organizing layers, classes and stories; and managing shareable drawing elements such as hatches, wall styles, slab styles, and symbols. Next, Wes will demonstrate how to create a residential model using various timesaving techniques and built-in architectural tools. Once the model is created, using viewports and worksheets, you will be able to extract out data from the model and easily produce a set of construction documents. Progression files will be provided to assist users in following along with the instructor.
OVERALL LEARNING GOALS
Complete a residential model from initial file setup to a set of construction documents.
Attendees must have completed the Core Concepts Training Class or have an intermediate to advanced knowledge of 3D workflows.
