Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Views and rendering styles, part of Learning Vectorworks (2014).
…As we begin working with 3D objects,…navigating the 2D representation of a 3D space can be quite challenging.…Vectorworks has some tools to help us retain our bearings and…steer our way around.…For starters, the View drop-down and…the View bar here is a great shortcut to some standard views.…Top Plan is unique and…it's the only standard view that uses the 2D representation of hybrid objects.…I'm not going to display every view, but…the main isometric views are great for getting a bearing on your drawing.…
Before we look at too many of the views,…I want to make what we were looking at a little clearer.…And the wireframe is probably one of the most confusing styles to use.…So let's look here under the teapot and switch to OpenGL.…OpenGL is one of the fastest and…less strenuous ways of getting a good 3D representation of your work.…It's not terribly high definition.…And doesn't calculate things like light or reflections.…But does give a good sense of space and materials.…Hidden line, again, gives a good space of the shapes, but without any of the fills.…
