We know you’ve been on the edge of your seat in anticipation of the latest editions of the Vectorworks Essentials Tutorial Manual and Vectorworks Architect Tutorial Manual, and the wait is finally over. Written by expert trainer Jonathan Pickup, who has over 25 years of industry experience and is the author of several Vectorworks training manuals, the eighth editions of each of these manuals are now available in hard copy with accompanying DVDs and are designed to educate readers on how to make the most of Vectorworks 2016 software.
Specifically, Vectorworks Essentials is structured to demonstrate basic concepts, such as simple drawing, modeling, and file organization. New to this year's manual are the "Test Yourself" exercises at the end of all eight chapters, so readers may apply what they've learned from the book to real-world situations.
"One of the training manuals we have at the office is Jonathan Pickup’s Vectorworks Essentials," said François Lévy, AIA, principal at Lévy Kohlhaas Architecture. "Jonathan’s book is clear, methodical, systematic, and thorough. He’s pioneered mixing text, video, and training files to produce manuals that are easy to follow, with deceptively simple exercises that elegantly capture the skills everyone needs to use Vectorworks to its fullest.”
Lévy added, "You might think you're buying a book, but you're really getting a whole training curriculum."
Building upon the Vectorworks Essentials manual and updated for use with Vectorworks Architect 2016 software, the Vectorworks Architect Tutorial Manual teaches readers to draft more efficiently by drawing with intelligent parametric objects rather than basic 2D geometry, as well as how Vectorworks software enables a BIM workflow.
