2D Components for Hybrid Objects in Vectorworks

In Vectorworks Architect, Landmark, and Spotlight, 2D Components for Hybrid Objects allows you to create 2D graphics for your 3D symbols and plug-in objects (PIOs) to easily present these objects at various levels of detail.

Use 2D and 3D hybrid symbol technology for all the standard views, not just Top/Plan view, combined with changing the level of detail so your symbols and PIOs can display the appropriate detail throughout a set of drawings.

For BIM Levels of Development (LODs), you can set up your 2D levels of detail to correspond with LOD 100, 200, and 300.

For those working in the UK, Vectorworks’ levels are the equivalent to LOD 1, 2, and 3.
