Vectorworks User Group: Site Improvements
A Vectorworks User Group
Tuesday, May 12, 2014
Free and open to all.
1.5 CES LUs
At this meeting we will focus on improving sites for building and landscape projects in a 3D environment, starting with creation of a basic site model from GIS data, then modifying it to suit existing detailed conditions and proposed site development: including creating roadways, retaining walls, building pads, hardscape elements, trees and other features. As usual, we will also host a forum for topics of general interest and field questions and offer solutions as best we can.
