Now, author and architect Jonathan Pickup can help you make the most of the program in a newly updated version of one of our most popular training guides, “Vectorworks Architect Tutorial Manual, Sixth Edition.”

Vectorworks Architect Tutorial Manual

“The new edition of the Vectorworks Architect Tutorial Manual is a must-have for anyone looking to master their skills in Vectorworks 2014,” said Rubina Siddiqui, senior product specialist – BIM solutions at Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc. “One of the most important key elements to learning our software is knowing the ins-and-outs of those basic concepts, and that’s exactly what this tutorial provides. Architects can always count on Jonathan Pickup’s tutorials to get them to the next level with Vectorworks.”

The tutorial covers basic concepts including 2D drafting, simple 3D modeling, and file organization. Notes and practice exercises throughout the tutorial and on an accompanying DVD provide additional guidance, and the DVD also includes a PDF copy of the book with embedded, narrated movies that depict steps documented in the text.

Additional concepts covered in this guide include:

  • Basic concepts of layers and classes and how they relate to developing an office layer and class standard
  • Using the Property Line tool
  • Creating and manipulating site models and using them for height-to-boundary analysis
  • Walls and wall type library
  • Linking stairs between layers, controlling stair graphics and saving the settings for other projects
