Over the years I have created several extra tools, or plug-ins, for Vectorworks.
These are very useful on older verisions of Vectorworks and some these are still

the basic concepts. Sometimes these basic concepts are abstract, and it can be
difficult for some students to understand how these basic concepts can affect
their later working.
