LANDMARK TRAINING

PART 1:

Course Information

Focused on Vectorworks Landmark's program fundamentals, this course prepares you to use Landmark's specialized tools and technology in your workflows. It is intended for those already familiar with the basic operation of Vectorworks software and who work in landscape architecture, design, contracting, or other related design disciplines. The objective is to lay a foundation for the most important aspects of 2D and 3D drawing, including essential drawing techniques, principles of file organization for common drawing types, and creation of a simple landscape plan/model consisting of a base plan, hardscapes, planting, and a plant list. 

 Learning Objectives

1. Learn how to organize your drawing files with industry standard conventions and best practice considerations for improved file management and successful collaboration with other design professionals. 

2. Utilize both imported file formats and field-collected site data to create base plans and opportunities for other site inventories to be used from schematic design to construction document phases.

3. Accomplish hybrid design processes intergrating 2D and 3D represented site elements, such as pavements, structures and plants, which will be used in essential plan documentation and model analysis and presentations. 

4. Use built-in worksheet features to aid in material quantification and scheduling, establishing time-saving resources which will be useful in future project assembly.

Course Prerequisites

Those considering this Vectorworks Landmark Online Training must understand basic drafting concepts, such as plan and elevation projections, scale and actual size, and drawing units. Attendees must also be comfortable with operating either a Macintosh or Windows computer system and understand basic mouse operations such as single click, double click, click and drag, scroll wheel, right click, and two click operations. Attendees must also know basic keyboard keys such as Spacebar, Tab, Control, Alt, Shift, Delete, Command (Mac), and Option (Mac) keys. 

 

PART 2:

Course Information

This training session will demonstrate how practitioners can reapply the old ideals of sustainability, and the newly recommended 'Site Design Sections' by the Sustainable Sites Initiative (SITES), to current methods of computer aided design. The practical exercises included will emphasize how these site-specific CAD tools enable sustainable design functions such as erosion control, runoff calculations, cut and fill calculations, existing/proposed plant tracking, native plant selections, and sun/shade analysis can be accomplished.

Learning Objectives

1. Learn how to quickly create, modify and analyze a 3D site digital terrain model promoting SITES objectives for soil and water management. 

2. Evaluate the effects of proposed plantings by introducing solar directional light into a 3D site model and producing still views at times recommended by SITES to control solar heat gain.

3. Create hydrozones from intelligent polygonal objects capable of reporting water usage, and utilize customizable worksheets to tabulate their water use data for water efficiency as promoted by the US EPA's Water smart program and SITES.

Course Prerequisites

Those considering this Vectorworks Landmark Online Training must understand basic drafting concepts, such as plan and elevation projections, scale and actual size, and drawing units. Attendees must also be comfortable with operating either a Macintosh or Windows computer system and understand basic mouse operations such as single click, double click, click and drag, scroll wheel, right click, and two click operations. Attendees must also know basic keyboard keys such as Spacebar, Tab, Control, Alt, Shift, Delete, Command (Mac), and Option (Mac) keys.
