If time is money, we’re about to save you some serious cash. These quick videos will help you pick up a few tricks that will shorten your workflow, increase your productivity, and let you get back to creative design.

Your light plot is already set up with lighting positions, label legends, and focus points—all you need now are the lights! From gel colors to field values, this video has all the information you need to ensure your light plots are accurate and easy to work with.


DWG files containing 2D topographical information may be helpful to designers, but they aren’t very visually appealing to prospective clients. This three-minute video walks you through transforming this 2D data into a 3D model with just a few simple steps. Your workflow just got a whole lot easier.


If ESP Vision software is a part of your design process, you’ll be happy to learn that ESP Symbols for use in Vectorworks software programs are now Renderworks compliant. That’s right, any model you create with ESP Vision symbols can now be used to create Renderworks stills without any modification. Check out just what you can do in the video below.


Finally, we released Service Pack 4 for Vectorworks 2015 today. You can download the update here or go to the About Vectorworks 2015 dialog box in the Vectorworks menu (Mac users) or Help menu (Windows users) and click Check for Updates.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns please reach out to us at or tweet at us @VectorworksHelp.
