3D & BIM TRAINING

VECTORWORKS HAS INDUSTRY LEADING 3D TOOLS AND CAN MODEL ANYTHING YOU CAN IMAGINE, DESIGN AND COMMUNICATE. WHY NOT LEARN HOW TO GET THE MOST FROM YOUR 3D SOFTWARE.

Training Outline

Our Vectorworks Trainers have years of industry experience. As part of the course the 3D & BIM training is tailored towards your individual requirements and skill levels.

Our Vectorworks 3D & BIM Training Course show you how to leverage the power of 3D design and modelling directly inside Vectorworks, replacing SketchUP or other 3D software. We can cover all the main 3D tools and modelling techniques from freeform modelling, too advanced NURBS, and Sub Division for furniture to site and terrain modelling for landscape and urban design as you require.

Course Content

• Introduction to the working environment

We look at project set up including layer, screen and working planes. As well showing reference and organise your 3D models properly.

• 3D tools & commands

As well as the basic extrudes, sweeps and solid additions and subtractions, we cover fillet, chamfer, extracting surfaces, tapering and more.

• History based modelling

Vectorworks has history based modelling and we show you how to access this to explore deisgn options and retain flexibility over changes.

• Advanced 3D NURBS modelling

Freeform modelling via NURBS and Subdivison tools opens up a whole new level or modelling for complex buildings and furniture items.

• Creating 3D & BIM Libraries Renderworks Textures

We cover importing 3D & SketchUP resources  and creating texture libraries and getting beautiful renders.

• Real-Time Rendering

Bing your models to life by exporting for real-time rendering via Twinmotion or Enscape directly from your Vectorworks 3D model

BIM

REALISE YOUR POTENTIAL

3D design and modelling is one of the fastest developing fields in architecture and construction, and the last few years have seen amazing new real-time rendering software like Twinmotion and Enscape democratise the world of rendering and animation.

If you have not fully embraced 3D design with Vectorworks, then you are not making the most of your most create powerful assets than now mean everyone can enjoy working in 3D and produce compelling presentations for your projects and clients. See what you can achieve with Vectorworks here.
