Our Vectorworks Foundation courses are always great fun as they bring together designers from different disciplines, and offer an opportunity to network and even find opportunities to collaborate!These courses are suitable for any new Vectorworks users whether you're an architect, landscape architect, garden designer, interior designer, lighting designer or event planner. It is not aimed at any specific design discipline, but will cover the basics of the Vectorworks interface, the basics of 2D drawing, introduction to 3D modelling and how to find and use the extensive resource libraries and create your own symbols. We even sneak in a peek at some of the more advanced tools, such as Walls, Doors and Windows. You'll move from a blank screen to completing a basic 2D plan, that looks great and is ready to print. Although the course is aimed at all designers, we do include some example plans for you to copy, which cover all the tools you'll learn, just in case you're short of inspiration on the day.
There are no specific Vectorworks pre-requisites for this course. However, if you are completely new to using a computer, we recommend that you familiarise yourself with how to use the mouse and keyboard, and how files are saved and organised on the computer, to enable you to gain the maximum benefit from the course. The trainer will be focused on use of Vectorworks.
