Northern California Vectorworks User Group

Tuesday, March 08, 2016
Free and open to all. No RSVPs needed.

1.5 CES LUs

With the addition of component layers to roof and roof face objects and their common component elements in walls and slabs in Vectorworks 2016, we propose to focus this month’s discussion on these components. This user group will also cover the graphic and virtual parts of objects that we use in these and a wide range of objects in our designs, to develop a better understanding of their characteristics, their control and use.

Along with the discussion, we will provide a forum for questions, answers, professional networking and sharing of topics of common interest.
