Are you ever curious how designers and drafters are using Vectorworks Spotlight? Or if they’re sitting on some advice that may work wonders for you and your workflow?
People with intellectual and/or development disorders (IDDs) often have difficulty with communication, social interaction, and executive function skills. As a result, they may benefit from specially designed environments that help support their needs.
Traditionally, 2D drafting has been the most common way for creators to design. But, in the past couple decades, 3D modeling has become more and more effective.
So, it begs the question: What's better — 2D drafting or 3D modeling?
Luckily, Vectorworks’ hybrid drawing environment means you never have to choose, and you can design without limits! You can seamlessly toggle between 2D and 3D views, meaning you can freely create 2D documentation and expressive 3D models in the same software.
