The Vectorworks Architect Tutorial Manual by expert Vectorworks trainer Jonathan Pickup is a thorough, project-based training workbook. The tutorial walks the user through a residential renovation project and demonstrates the process of documenting the existing site, preparing and presenting proposed designs, and creating working drawings/construction documents. Although the example in the manual is a residential project, the principles learned can also be applied to commercial building design.
This third edition of the tutorial has been updated for use with Vectorworks Architect 2012 software. It includes an expanded visualization chapter with the addition of massing models and a solar animation exercise, as well as a greater focus on concept drawing and site analysis.
