Dive into this month’s Tech Roundup with two new tutorial videos.

First, make a splash with your renderings. Take the plunge into this video that shows you how to use displaced textures and render settings to achieve realistic water caustics.

Next, pick up a few pointers on converting PLY files to formats that are compatible with Vectorworks software. This video will walk you through using MeshLab to convert your PLY point cloud files to point cloud or solid mesh file formats that can be imported into Vectorworks software.

Keep your head above water and be sure to email us any questions at or tweet us @VectorworksHelp.
