About the Course

This weekly evening course is for complete beginners with no experience of Vectorworks.

This 5 week beginner’s course will introduce you to the best practices and approaches to working in Vectorworks. Each 2.5 hour session will cover the following:

Session 1
Set up a drawing – units, scale, paper, pens, palettes, saving and 2D CAD drawing tools – selection, line and text tool

Session 2
Create 2D objects – rectangle, circle and polygon to form shapes.

Session 3
Use the editing tools – cut, copy, paste. Duplicate array, mirror, rotate, move and send tools

Session 4
Create more complex objects – using Add, Clip and Combine surfaces tool and the attributes tool

Session 5
Add text and dimensions to drawings
Create furniture layouts for a studio apartment

Creativity is at the centre of what we do, with practical studio activity including experimental sketchbook work, constructing spatial models with expressive materials and generating drawings and images to communicate your ideas. Interior design is also a precise and technical subject, where scale drawing, perspective visuals and use of CAD software such as Sketchup, PhotoShop and Vectorworks, are all part of a very contemporary and innovative profession. Learning takes you outside the class, with real projects, visits and contact with London’s design professionals.
