Vectorworks has an easy way to create an animation, called the orbit point. While this is the simplest way to create animation, it also has the least options, making the result rather simplistic. However, if you want a quick method that give your clients an idea of the building, then this is an easy way to do it. It's also the easiest method to start using if you haven't created animations before.
There are some options that I don't cover in this movie but you will find them in my movie on this website : http://learn.archoncad.com

You might have ended up at my new web site because you were looking for www.archoncad.co.nz. So why the new site? Well, for the past year I have been planning on changing my web site so that it can be more user friendly, so that it can contain all my movies and manuals, and so that it is searchable.

This month we are looking at animations in Vectorworks. You can make movies directly inside your Vectorworks files using the tools and commands. Of course, you have to be careful how you set up your lighting, models, views and rendering. When you set up the file correctly, you can produce high quality movies.

One of my clients was asking about drawing a stone capping on a wall. There are two ways to deal with this, drawing a 2D plan view, or correctly modeling the stone capping in 3D. This applies to more than just a stone capping, it applies to any wall that has a capping on it.
