Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video 3D concepts, part of Up and Running with Vectorworks.
…As we move from 2D to 3D in the course, there are a few topics I…want to cover that are specific to working in a 3D environment.…The first of these is the Z coordinate.…In an earlier video we discussed the cartesian plane,…the grid layer on the drawing to locate objects in space.…Values for points in the cartesian plane are given in an X comma Y fashion.…In 3D we add a third dimension for depth, referenced by the Z coordinate and…added to the location which now becomes X, Y, Z.…The positive values on the X, Y axis are considered right and up respectively.…
A positive Z coordinates are ones that will move forward toward you…from the screen or above the flat display.…As we begin to work on an architectural project,…this Z coordinate becomes the elevation of the structure.…The next concept we need to address is hybrid objects.…This refers to the display of a symbol or an object in its 2D or plain view and…its display in a 3D view.…Many of the objects you'll find in the resource libraries installed with…Vectorworks are hybrid objects.…
