…Vectorworks, like any program, has its own environmental concepts and…approaches to drafting and design.…Vectorworks uses what it calls classes and layers to help manage objects and…information in your drawing.…So becoming familiar with the differences and…the uses of these tools is very important.…But simply, classes are the what and layers are the where.…Starting with classes.…Objects are grouped in classes based on the object type.…This is determined by you, the user, so…you can group things as needed, but in product suites,…like Architect, certain objects are created in classes all on their own.…
In a blank drawing, there are two classes by default none and dimension.…In the exercise files I've taken the liberty of creating some objects and…assigning them to different classes.…Using the navigation palette we find down here we can control the visibility of…these classes.…There are three levels of visibility in Vectorworks, visible, invisible, and gray.…These are pretty self explanatory as you can see here as I…
