The guide also includes 62 videos, which provide step-by-step instructions for completing the exercises. Vectorworks Landmark Tutorial Manual, Second Edition includes a series of projects to familiarize the user with Vectorworks Landmark concepts and techniques and includes more than 50 videos to walk users through each technique.

Pickup outlines various 3D modeling tools, giving tons of screen captures as well as a DVD containing associated videos. After learning some of the basic commands and uses for the tools, the tutorial takes you through a couple of full projects from start to finish.” To read the press release in full, please visit our website.   Read More
