Did you recently switch to Vectorworks from another software and are now wondering where to begin? Look no further. Check out these in-depth courses from Vectorworks University for the best places to start your new workflow journey and to see the benefits now that you've switched.
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?
The best way to know that a product is right for you is trying it for yourself. The second-best way is hearing it from someone else.
If you’re familiar with our Marionette Monday series, you’ve likely seen many posts on all of the fabulous designs Marionette has been a part of producing as well as various tips for using the program. But what exactly is Marionette, what is an Algorithms-Aided Design (AAD) tool, and why is a Vectorworks feature exciting enough to get its own blog series?
Vincent van Gogh, born March 30, 1853, would be 167 years old if he were alive today. The artist has inspired many to create art of their own, including Dutch firm [delacourt][vanbeek], who recently recreated Van Gogh’s Self-Portrait with Grey Felt Hat on a courtyard in Zundert, the Netherlands. The brick mosaic now lives outside of the Van Gogh House where Van Gogh was born.

Landscape architects increasingly feel pressured to integrate BIM into their workflows to maintain ownership of the entire design and build process. This transition seems daunting, perhaps even unachievable, but several firms are up for the task.
