Learn something new or touch up your skills with one of our FREE webinars this month.
Vectorworks Design Day is in the books — but if you missed any of the three live sessions, we have a full recap for you. Find everything about the event in this blog post, including where you can watch the sessions on-demand.
With the release of #Vectorworks2021, we’re featuring some of our customers’ projects in our promotional materials. The first is a railway terminal proposed for Ülemiste, a subdistrict of the Estonian capital Tallinn.
Now that #Vectorworks2021 is out, here’s your chance to hear from Vectorworks leadership and users around the world about the latest innovations in the new version!
We’re back with another Marionette Monday!
In the past, we’ve shared a lot of custom scripts and networks that do a whole lot of different things (this gravity retaining wall design, this 2D to massing model automation, and this building story automation to name a few!) This time, we have a script that generates some unique geometry patterns. This network transforms an image into a triangulated panel by reading the image’s data for each pixel, then averaging colors per triangle.
BIM is one of the ways architects, landscape architects, and other AEC professionals realize their visions — with accurate and data-rich models. These models offer greater coordination, bringing in the expertise of everyone involved in the project.
We’re living in uncertain times, and the culprit is clear—the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the resulting global pandemic have transmuted our standards of work into a shell of what they once were. For many, it’s worse than that.
At Vectorworks, our top priorities are the health and safety of both our employees and our customers. Most employees are remote, with some returning to the office under strict guidelines to keep safe.
To that end, this blog post compiles all of our resources related to COVID-19 support for you.
In this time of social distancing, it’s a necessary yet sad reality that most of this year’s trade shows have been canceled. We’ve decided to bring the Vectorworks trade show experience to you virtually, so that you can take advantage of the learning opportunities you would have seen at the in-person events.
As we await the return to normal work life, there are still plenty of ways to keep your skills sharp. And what better way than free courses?
A common workflow in the early stages of landscape architecture/design is to represent structures with 2D geometry to provide the site with a frame of reference. You’d import 2D GIS shapefiles like roads, topography, and buildings, then maintain the geometry’s data in what Vectorworks calls “records.”
When you're ready to work in 3D, though, manually converting shapefiles to massing models can be time-consuming. What if there were a way to automate it?
