- Multiply information
- Hide them
- Controlling information
Bar along the top shows your current views and shows different views so you can see it 2D or 3D.
Set up mm’s, square meters and cubic meters.
On the object info, there are three circles in a row and when you move them is extends where the point is
- Ctrl and z is the undo button

We imported our plan of 32 Cambridge Street onto Vectorworks by going to File-Import-Import Image File.
We started to go around the plan with the line tool and connected them altogether which I then used the offset tool to get lines going around the interior walls as well. Pressing space bar and dragging helped get around the plans easier. They crossed over at the edges which I got rid of with the connect/combine tool.
File, import, import image file to upload work onto Vectorworks
Modify, scale objects then fit to objects to get the right scale for your plans
View, layer options, show/ snap layers for when you are drawing
- Connect/ combine tool
- Diagonal line to each one to get rid of cross hatching
Modify, clip surface
Before the session finished we went to Model-Extrude and then went to the current view tool to see my lines 3D.
I learned the basics today in Vectorworks which I enjoyed however we did not get much done in the lesson due to just learning the software and trying to all stay on the same task together.
