Catie showed a vwx project she assigns to her Vectorworks students at the Wood Technology Center:  Model a kitchen from a dimensioned pencil sketch of existing space and add new cabinets.

Rick brought paper print of a residential construction drawing set created in an old DOS drafting program, and some Vectorworks updates to the set.

Benson showed photos and the AsBuilt drawing set from his public art lobby glazing at the Wood Construction Center.

Basha brought photos of a mural project on her iPad, but we did not get to them.  We will take a look next time.

We spent most of the meeting creating and modifying viewports.  Members were controlled the keyboard to demonstrate several aspects of working with viewports.  This will continue next meeting.

In the discussions, we also touched on general work flow issues, eg whether to keep an entire project and all the design iterations and revisions in one giant vwx file or to create new files as the design develops.

 

Next meeting sometime in January, maybe at the Wood Technology Center.  Date & venue TBA
