Extrusions. Lofts. Revolves. Lets play in 3 dimensions…
When you need to reference another drawing into your current you can create a viewport on a design layer. To make this work, the reference file needs to be first saved to the same version of Vectorworks you’re using.
Once you’ve imported the reference you can draw your new design on top. This is a very useful tool for TDs who are touring the same set into different venues.
Printing, sheet layers & viewports – oh my!
Sheet layers are our output drawings. All annotations (notes & dimensions) and titles should be done on the sheet layer.
To add a view from your drawing to the sheet layer first create a viewport from the View menu.
To add annotations to the sheet layer right click on the viewport and select “edit annotations”.
Work on Assignment #4. Now’s your time to ask questions…
Tonight’s class was awesome. I really connected with them. I think they like me.
