Vectorworks is a versatile and creative application for architects and landscape designers. It provides extensive 2D drafting, 3D modelling, Building Information Modelling (BIM) and rendering capabilities, with designer-focused tools and features that give your workflows ease of use and flexibility. A key strength of Vectorworks is its ability to serve the entire creative process, from the initial concept stage through design development, construction drawings, and presentations. Our Vectorworks training will educate and inspire you to gain new skills, fine-tune workflows, and discover new ways to make the most of your Vectorworks software. We'll teach you how to utilise tools, menu commands and drawing organisation in Vectorworks. By the end of the course, delegates will have gained the skills needed to make use of 2D and 3D modelling techniques, to understand the use of graphical styles and outputs in presenting your drawings and how to follow best practice workflows in Vectorworks.
