[Archoncad] Weekly Digest Email 20 (blogs and movies for Vectorworks)

BIM_SIG_021 Special Interest Group April 2013

In the session had only one attendee. Lucky for him, he was able to have
one-on-one training as part of his subscription. His main area of problem was
roofing. So in this session we looked at his roof challenges and how we can cope
with them in Vectorworks.

BIM_SIG_020 Special Interest Group April 2013

In this session we started to look at how to control 2D graphics on elevations.
This session followed on from the recent epodcast that looked at the ability to
use the 2D graphics from the classes to give the elevations hatching it would be
live to the 3-D model.

epodcast176 - Unshaded Polygon Rendering for Elevations

For a long time we wanted to have the ability to automatically hatch our
elevations. There are several workarounds, but no one had yet figured out away
to make the hatching on our are elevations automatic.

This week I posted the following blogs:
SST_1304 - Creating Construction Details

Creating construction details is a major part of your contract documentation.
But how should you create  these details? Is it possible to use BIM techniques
to create all your detailing?

For some projects, using BIM techniques will not give the content all the
graphic style required for detailing.

Online Sessions for April 2013

This month the online workshop sessions will be looking at detailing in
Vectorworks. we also have special interest group meetings for Vectorworks
architect, Vectorworks landmark, and for the education sector. Do not forget to
book now....

Education_SIG_003 Education Special Interest Group March 2013

In this session we looked at the resources that are on this web site and we
looked at t

epodcast175 - Clip Cube for 3D Modeling

Vectorworks 2013 introduced this concept called the Clip Cube. The clip cube
is a 3-D modeling technique that allows you to hide all the 3-D objects outside
of the clip cube.

Education_m_002 - Extrusions and Modeling


3D modeling in Vectorworks is fun and it allows you to create objects that have
never existed before.
