Posted by Lisa Lance on 3/7/13 10:34 AM

The fifth edition of our Vectorworks Architect Tutorial Manual by expert Vectorworks trainer Jonathan Pickup of Archoncad is now available. This thorough, project-based training workbook has been updated for use with Vectorworks Architect 2013 software and includes instruction about the following:

  • Using layers and classes and developing an office layer and class standard
  • Creating an office library
  • Using the Property Line tool
  • Creating and manipulating site models and using them for height-to-boundary analysis
  • Using Walls and Wall Styles
  • Understanding stairs and vertical transport
  • Making a quick model of a project using spaces for bulk and location analysis
  • Using annotation tools, title blocks, and the notes database to quickly annotate your plans

Although the example in the manual is a residential project, the principles learned can also be applied to commercial building design.
