Aired November 14 | Approved for One AIA LU
Spend more time designing and less time documenting using Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflows and smart documentation tools.
In this webinar, Sarah Barrett, associate AIA and senior architect product specialist at Vectorworks, discusses how data visualization and Data Tags can help document your model efficiently.
Watch this webinar to gain valuable insights on tools like Viewport Styles, Graphic Legends, Grid Lines, and Elevation Benchmarks to maximize your data automation and leverage smart tools for documentation.
Workflows for House of Worship Design
Aired November 20
With nearly a decade of experience in production and 15 years in IT and networking, Geoff Franklin brings a unique blend of skills to his work for Church of the Highlands.
In this webinar, discover how Franklin uses structured Vectorworks Spotlight files to create memorable moments that enrich the worship experience.
Understanding your project's carbon footprint
Aired November 29 | Approved for One Hour of Formal CPD
The Vectorworks Embodied Carbon Calculator (VECC) provides you with the ability to assess embodied carbon emissions through a project’s lifecycle. The analysis looks at individual materials, a project’s lifecycle stages, and benchmarks for set targets.
During the webinar, you'll hear of standards, guidance, and legislation that drive embodied carbon to the front of the sustainable construction conversation. Presenter Luka Stefanovic, senior architecture industry specialist, demonstrates assessing the carbon footprint of a design with built-in tools that enable regular evaluations during the design process.
Troy Diamond, technical support specialist, RAIA, hosts the webinar and a brief Q&A on how VECC can be utilized for Australian workflows.
With the Vectorworks Embodied Carbon Calculator, you’ll have the power to gather metrics and make informed decisions as you look to achieve carbon-reducing targets.
Better Collaboration with Civil 3D Files
Aired November 30 | Approved for One LA CES PDH and One APLD CEU
As a landscape architect or designer, you can find efficiencies in making use of “background” files from civil and survey engineers. You can apply their proposed work without recreating the base plan. And, with advancements in BIM software, working in different applications is easier than ever before with better file management and staying consistent with origin, georeferencing, and positioning.
Watch Tony Kostreski, PLA and senior landscape product specialist, to learn the benefits of importing or referencing files and how imported geometry and data can be transformed into smart hybrid objects. All of the methods discussed can provide essential context in your BIM for landscape workflows.
