Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Advanced modifying tools, part of Learning Vectorworks (2014).
…We covered some basic Modification tools in an earlier video.…But there are more tools available to help you to alter your geometry to…suit your needs.…First, we're going to look at Offset, found here.…Offset can either offset a copy of the object or the original object, and…it can do this using a set distance or a chosen point.…We're going to start in Duplication mode as well as Distance mode.…And for my distance,…I'm going to enter in one, I'll use the Cmd key to select my line.…Now I can pick the side to offset to.…
In this case, I'm going to use the lower right corner.…We can see that the newly created object is the selected object.…So I can continue to offset it as many times as I need to.…Again, I'll use the Ctrl key to select a new object, in this case my rectangle.…And now I'm going to select Point mode.…And turn off duplication.…And this time I'm going to essentially offset my rectangle to the endpoint of…this line.…And click it once.…And again to confirm.…Another useful pair of tools are the Fill it and Chamfer tools.…
