Learn about classes and how to use classes.
- [Instructor] Where design layers can be seen…as stacks of transparent paper, classes can be seen…as similarities of the drawn objects on the sheets.…In this file, we have four layers.…Let's go ahead and go to the info bar…under the active layer, and see that we have table legs,…table top, bench, and chairs.…To the left of this pull down menu,…we have our classes, our active classes.…So, right now it's set to none.…So, none is the class that is active right now,…and all of these objects are set to this none class.…
It's a typical thing with VectorWorks…when you start working with files.…You don't necessarily need to set up your classes,…but it's an extra tool that you can use…to organize your work.…So, let's say we want to hide all the seating,…and because the bench and the chairs…are in their own unique layers,…we'd have to hide those layers.…So, we can access that with the organization window,…but a quick way to access that is just to the left…of our active layer we can click on this layers button.…
That brings up the same window that we had before…
