Three new training guides for users of Vectorworks software are now available: 3D Modeling in Vectorworks, Fourth Edition; Vectorworks Architect Tutorial Manual, Fourth Edition; and Vectorworks Essentials Tutorial Manual, Fourth Edition. All three manuals were written by Jonathan Pickup, a leading Vectorworks trainer from New Zealand, and have been updated for use with the 2012 version of Vectorworks software.
3D Modeling in Vectorworks helps the reader build a foundation of skills for creating 3D forms through the use of extrudes, sweeps, solids, NURBS, loft surfaces, and 3D primitives.
Vectorworks Architect Tutorial Manual walks the user through a residential renovation project and demonstrates the process of documenting the existing site, preparing and presenting proposed designs, and creating working drawings/construction documents.
Vectorworks Essentials Tutorial Manual is designed to help the user build a foundation of essential Vectorworks knowledge, and it covers simple 2D drafting, 3D modeling, planar objects, and file organization.
"I am quite excited about the updates to these manuals,” said Pickup. “With every edition, I make sure we use the most up-to-date methods. I’m particularly excited about the 3D modeling tutorial, as it shows how a user can keep an entire design within the Vectorworks program without needing to use any other software.”
