Vectorworks Core Concepts Course
This is the best hands-on training option to learn how to utilize tools, menu commands and drawing organization in Vectorworks. Core Concepts starts from the ground up, teaching you all of the necessary basics needed to become a Vectorworks pro. Make use of 2D and 3D modeling techniques from the start and learn the entry points and correct workflows to help master Vectorworks.
Those considering beginning classroom training must understand basic drafting concepts, such as plan and elevation projections, scale and actual size, and drawing units. Attendees must also be comfortable with operating either a Macintosh or Windows computer system and understand basic mouse operations such as single click, double click, click and drag, scroll wheel, right click and two click operations. Attendees would also need to know basic keyboard keys such as Spacebar, Tab, Control, Alt, Shift, Delete, Command (Mac), and Option (Mac) keys.
Overall Learning Goals
Drawing fast; keeping accurate; incorporating flexible drawing structures; employing efficient techniques; introduction to Vectorworks conventions and concepts.
