New and Improved Tools for Architects in Vectorworks 2017

A Northern California Vectorworks Users Group

Tuesday, January 10, 2017
Free and open to all. No RSVPs needed.

1.5 CES LUs

Vectorworks 2017 provides architects with several new tools, new commands and improvements.  In our first meeting of the year, we will continue exploring some of the most significant.  First, we will review the Structural Member Tool that we started discussing last November. We will then explore the features of the new Custom Cabinet and new Railing/Fence Tools, as well as the new Interior Elevations Command.  Time permitting, we will discuss some of the many improvements to parametric objects and 2D and 3D graphics that enhance the design process and our documentation.
