Vectorworks 3D Modeling 2017
(all costs are shown in $US)
This course covers one of the best parts of Vectorworks, creating 3D models. It is really fun and rewarding to create the forms you want and be able to move around them to view your work from different angles.
This course starts with an introduction to modeling in Vectorworks. This section explains the basic concepts you need to create complex models effectively. There are a series of modeling exercises designed to show you how individual tools and commands work. Some of these exercises will use a few tools or commands together to show you the flow of work from a simple block to the final model.
Following the Introduction, there is an architectural modeling exercise to bring several modeling tools, commands, and concepts together to develop a model and create drawings from it.
The next part of the course is an introduction to Subdivision Modeling. Subdivision modelling is a very powerful and flexible way of creating complex forms. It is also a new way of creating objects and Vectorworks. This chapter will introduce you to the concepts behind subdivision modelling and show you how to use this to create specific objects.
The final part of the course is a bus stop exercise. The aim of this project is to work through a long series of exercises to create a final project. You will learn how to break the project down into small parts and model each of these. You will learn how to do more advanced modeling by making street furniture, how to use some of the advanced tools for creating curved 3D models, and how to move through a series of tools and commands to get the model that you want.
When you are drawing in Vectorworks, draw the objects to the correct real-world sizes regardless of the scale of the layer that you are working on.
It is much easier to maximize the potential of Vectorworks by using objects to draw with, as they can be easily edited (for example, doors, windows, rectangles, etc.). You could say that Vectorworks is designed to draw with objects.
When you want to draw shapes, you may be tempted to use lines and arcs to draw the shape. Always try to draw with solid shapes, rectangles, and polygons. I have created a series of exercises that show you how to make complex shapes out of simple shapes by adding the shapes together or by clipping a portion of a simple shape away to make a complex shape.
It’s very important that you use these new drawing methods to draw your buildings, landscapes, or models.
