Here are a couple training treats for you to enjoy this month.
Whether you are brand new to 3D modeling or a seasoned pro, everyone has something to learn from “The Art and Function of 3D Modeling” webinar, now available on demand. In just 60 minutes, Luis Ruiz, senior product specialist at Vectorworks, demonstrates how the tools and capabilities of Vectorworks software allow users to create beautiful 3D projects all within the program.
Topics: AIA LU, Architecture, Entertainment, extrude, parametric modeling, The Art and Function of 3D Modeling, 3D Modeling, continuing education, Inspiration Page, Landscape, Luis Ruiz, Marionette, webinar
Point cloud technology is an incredibly useful tool for designers. Whether you need to work with an existing space or just learn the lay of the land, transforming data captured with 3D scanning into point clouds can revolutionize how you design. But do you know how to best incorporate point cloud information into your workflow? With the webinar “From Point Cloud to Documentation,” you can discover how to make point cloud technology work for you and then take an associated quiz to earn one AIA LU credit.
To celebrate Architecture Month in October, also known as Archtober, the AIA Orlando hosted BIM BAM BOOM!, a charrette style “shoot-out” aimed at showcasing the advantages of Building Information Modeling (BIM).
