Feeling wary about integrating BIM into your workflow? Thinking that adopting BIM will disrupt your design process?
Here are two ways that we can help.
Nothing happens in a vacuum, and architecture is no exception. Architectural projects don’t often get to start from scratch — they often deal with existing building conditions, such as a renovation or connection of new construction to an existing structure. And usually the documentation must reflect multi-phase construction, such as design-built construction delivery or traditional design-bid-built with several phases.
Topics: Architecture, Vectorworks, 2D workflows, IFC export, multi-phase construction, design-bid-built, demolition plans, phased construction plans, design-built construction, BIM workflow, layers and classes, object libraries, views and viewports

Looking to optimize your workflow with clients through the use of Vectorworks software? Then take two minutes out of your busy, design-filled schedule to learn about the view transition animation Vectorworks preference. This feature allows you to smoothly animate the transition from one view to another, resulting in a constant understanding of your designs so you can more effectively refine your models and present design views and options to your clients.
Does Marionette intimidate you? Alan Woodwell, architectural designer at Playoust Churcher Architects, offers helpful insight in his recent AECbytes article, “The Many Marvels of Marionette and How to Make the Most of It.” Marionette is one of Vectorworks software’s smartest tools because it allows users to speed up their design workflows and simplify repetitive tasks, leading to impressive finished products. When Marionette made it’s debut, AECbytes Editor Lachmi Khemlani, Ph.D., commented: “From what I saw, Marionette seemed fascinating, and I would have to rate it as the ‘coolest’ feature I saw at this year’s AIA.”
