Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Layers for architectural design, part of Up and Running with Vectorworks.
…When creating complex architectural models,…it's important to be as organized as possible.…So you're not spending time fighting the program looking for objects, or…manually turning on and off objects to get your work done.…In this chapter we're going to build a small house with two floors.…So it's important to start an organized layer system and document setup.…Also in this chapter we're going to be using the architect workspace, so…make sure this is the active workspace as you begin drafting.…You'll need the tools found in…the architect workspace to complete this chapter.…However, some of the topics can be worked around.…
For example, in fundamentals, you do not have the option of underlaying a PDF file.…You can, however, underlay a JPEG.…Again, we're going to start in a blank drawing.…I'm going to go up to the Tools menu, and open up the Organization dialog box.…I'm going to make sure Design Layer-1 is selected, and click Edit.…And, I'm going to change the name of this to Scan 1.…I'm going to change the scale to 1:50.…
