Look at other more advanced modeling features like Subdivision Modeling, NURBS and Wall tools.
- [Instructor] Now that we have a basic understanding…of 3D modeling in Vectorworks,…let's take a look at a few more features.…So far, we've only been modeling…hard surface polygonal models.…Let's take a look at how we can create…curved surfaces.…We'll go to Model,…and Create Subdivision Primitive.…So, a subdivision primitive…is a polygon…that has been smoothed out, essentially.…So, it's like a lump of clay.…So, let's just stay with the sphere, and hit okay.…Now, let's click in the screen,…and now we have a sphere,…or sphere-ish thing,…and you'll notice it has a box around it.…
That box is essentially a cube…that is smoothed out.…Let's take a look at how we can edit this.…Let's go to Tool Sets,…and make sure that we have our…3D modeling tool set selected,…and by clicking on the Edit Subdivision tool,…we now have access to the different planes,…and edges, and vertices,…that create this box that shapes the sphere.…So, this is what's called a cage,…this box that we have here,…and if we click on one of these objects,…the edge, we have this manipulator.…
