Focused on fundamental best practices, this course prepares designers in the architecture, landscape and entertainment industries to use Vectorworks software’s tools and technology in their professional practices. The objective is to establish a core understanding of a design workspace and then integrate the most important aspects of 2D and 3D drawing, including essential drawing techniques, principles of file organization for common drawing types, and creation of objects represented in plan, elevation, and model views. This course will also help designers develop proficient workflows related to graphics and symbol resource creation, reuse, and management, as well as data- and rule-driven parametric design.

• Navigate a design software’s workspace and organize their drawing files with industry-standard conventions and best practice considerations for improved file management and successful collaboration with other design professionals.
• Accomplish hybrid design processes, integrating 2D and 3D elements typical of their industry, which will be used in essential plan documentation and model analysis, as well as presentations.
• Create and manage drawing resources, such as hatches, tiles, fills, line types, and symbols, as well as develop and access external files (libraries) of industry-essential resources, enabling them to become more proficient in their design workflows.
• Experience parametric design by creating and managing objects with data and rules, an essential part of the Building Information Modeling (BIM) process.
