This course covers how to get the best from Vectorworks Architect. using Building Information Modeling. In this course we will be working through a domestic project. The concepts we cover in this manual are useful in domestic and commercial work. We will learn how to set up the project, how to set up stories, layers, levels, and classes to make to easy to create the drawings from the model. We will learn how to work in the most efficient way possible.
This course is designed to follow on from the Vectorworks Fundamentals course. In the fundamentals you learned all the basic tools and concepts. In this course you build on those to create an architectural project. You must complete the Fundamentals course before starting this course.
