Computer-aided design (CAD) modelling is an essential part of visualising design ideas for architecture and spatial design. This course will help you understand the general logic of Vectorworks, an industry-standard CAD software used for drafting, technical drawing and 3D modelling.
Computer models can aid in the process of experimentation and design development, complementing physical model making and drawing. Creating models in CAD can help you to better understand how spatial volumes work and how the user would experience them.
The course will introduce you to the various ways of using Vectorworks to create 3D designs and structures. Through tutor-led demonstrations and personal projects you will learn the different techniques that are most appropriate for creating 3D objects.
- Introduction to CAD
- Fundamentals of Vectorworks
- 2 dimensional design
- 3 dimensional design
By the end of the course you should be able to:
- Use appropriate techniques to create various objects with efficiency
- Have a general understanding of the logic of the software
- Understand the different palettes, tools and editing options used in Vectorworks
- Create 2D and 3D designs and structures
- Understand and use scale in your design drawing
Who Should Attend
Students and professionals wishing to learn to use Vectorworks for computed-aided design. Please note that this course is taught on Macs.
Mari Lember is a BA (Hons) Interior Design graduate from LCC, working as a visiting lecturer on the BA (Hons) Interior Design and FdA Interior Design courses at LCC and as a freelance Vectorworks tutor and visualizer. She is interested in how design and visual culture can be engaged in areas such as sustainability, alternative social movements and orders and social well-being.
