Learn about different tools, modes, and techniques that are consistent with other tools throughout Vectorworks.
- [Instructor] Now let's make a hard…line drawing of the sketch.…Through this process we won't be concerned…with drafting best practices.…We'll go over different tools, modes, and techniques…that are consistent with other tools through Vectorworks.…First, let's make sure that we're in the right layer.…Let's go up to our pull down menu up above here…in the info bar, and let's switch that to Table Top.…First draw out the table top of this table.…All right, now let's start drawing lines.…Let's go to the Basic pallette…and click on the line tool,…and click anywhere on the left side of that table top,…and drag over, and let's draw anywhere on the other side,…just roughly eight feet.…
Now that we have that line selected,…let's go over to the Object Info palette.…Toward the middle we have a delta X.…That tells us the length of that line in the X direction.…Since it's perfectly horizontal,…let's change that to eight feet.…And now we know that that is exactly eight feet.…So, while we have that line selected,…let's go ahead and duplicate it by using the Offset Tool.…
