Tech Roundup: July 2015

Posted by Pete Hicks on 7/9/15 11:26 AM  |  1 min read time

They say the devil is in the details, but the details that give your work a competitive edge don’t have to hinder your workflow. That’s why this month’s tech roundup is all about making your designs the best they can be — whether that means adding an extra touch of style to a model or pulling valuable data out of work that you’ve already produced.

In the first video, we’ll explain how to model realistic curtains and drapes. While these detailed pieces of décor may seem overly complex, they’re actually very simple to make if you know what tools to use. Although, you don’t have to mention their simplicity to your impressed clients!


The next video is a little bit more complex, but it can provide a lot of value to your designs. In less than four minutes, we’ll show you how to pull out the contours of your site model for export to another application. Not only will this wow your clients, but it will also streamline your workflow with your projects’ contractors and anyone else involved in the construction process.


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