Tips : The Right Mouse click...

I have been teaching a lot lately and one of the issues that I’ve noticed is how much faster you can draw if you add frequently used commands to the right-mouse click (ctrl-click if you only have one button).

One of the commands I use a lot is Add Surface. I used to have a keyboard shortcut for this, but that means taking your hand off the mouse. I added this command to the right-mouse using the Workspace Editor. Now when I want to use Add Surface, I can right-mouse click and choose Add Surface straight away.

Up-Comming Courses

We now have two course organised in Wellington in November. The first course in a VectorWorks Essentials course which will be in early November, followed two weeks later by an Advanced Architect course.

How Far Can You Go With VectorWorks Rendering

If you are wondering how far you can go with renderings from VectorWorks have a look at last month’s MacGuide magazine. In this issue I show you how to take 2 animations from VectorWorks, and make them into one movie with a sound track and voice over...

In the next article I will be showing how to get this movie into iDVD to name a DVD presentation for you clients.

VectorWorks User Group Meeting in Auckland

The next User Group Meeting in Auckland will be Tuesday 11th October 2005 from 6:30pm to 8pm. At the last user gorup meeting we were missing the log-in codes for the computers, so no-one could use the computers. The feedback was that this was one of the better user group meetings and we should have more like this one. In the future we will try to have more meetings in lecture rooms, rather than the CAD lab.

This user group meeting will cover Constraints, Preferences and Questions and answers...

Getting Started

i have heard a lot about blogs and I thought that it would be good to start one to let everyone know what was going on in NZ with VectorWorks.
