As a valued member of the Vectorworks community we would like to welcome you to this exploration file, provided by Vectorworks. We provide an overview of the project's objectives below, but to jump straight into exploring the project, we suggest running
through the Saved Views and/or the Sheet Layers. The House Residential sample file consists of 3 files:
The first two, named House in Half an Hour, provide a simple and straightforward way to get to grips with modelling using parametric tools such as Walls, Slabs, Roofs, Windows and Doors. The first file is a template providing a blank slate with guides
and instructions for quick start modelling practice. The second file shows how the model should look like once finished. The third file is a developed stage model that provides an insight into some of the more advanced workflows in Vectorworks - particularly
model data processing. Materials have been used extensively, to provide both graphic attributes to objects and also as means to obtain quantity take offs, which in turn populate our Embodied Carbon Calculator and Bills of Quantities live worksheets.
Energos energy analysis project settings and results can also be explored using this model.
Project organisation in these files includes a generic Storey setup and Design Layers linked with Storey Levels. A Class structure is based on the UK's Uniclass2015. Resources such as Wall Styles which work with Storey Levels can be found in the Resource
Manager. This has been setup so you can immediately start modelling using those resources and project settings.

To jump straight into exploring the project, we suggest running through the Saved Views and/or the Sheet Layers. Then, dissect the file by digging into the individual design layers to learn more about all the features in Vectorworks Landmark.
The sheets we provide are not intended to be a full set of drawings, but instead a sample collection - from masterplan to details. There is also a set of Guide Sheets with more detailed information on the individual actions. The saved views relating to
these are also marked with 'Guide'. If you're following the saved views, you'll see that they're structured on the LI Digital Plan of Works (For more details, please visit https://www.landscapeinstitute.org/). This file also includes a set of resources
- feel free to adapt anything you find via the resource manager.
The brief for the project is a green, relaxed outside space for an office building (The Cube). The rooftop garden is phase two and will be available in a separate demo file.
The Gallery project for 2022 gets an addition, the Northwest Building, exemplifying the use of level offsets to achieve a variation in building elevation. This project is also a great example of the BIM process which includes a full set of drawings, details and Schedules. Several techniques such as Class overrides, Data Tags and Styles are used throughout the project along with various rendering styles. In addition, the file includes a site model, plant objects, landscape areas as well as hardscape elements.

This Fashion show exploration file illustrates how an entire workflow can be implemented using Vectorworks. From conceptual design to fully rendered 3d model. Once the model has been created, Lighting Plots, Seating Staging and Speaker Layouts can be added. Once your event is complete, you can ensure safety with our Braceworks calculation plugin. In this file, you will also see a selection of ConnectCAD Schematics keeping all of your event planning needs in Vectorworks and reducing the reliance and cost of additional software.

This Residential Kitchen exploration file illustrates how a project can be taken from conceptual stages to a fully rendered model with Vectorworks and the additional plugin Interiorcad (designed for custom joinery). Once the model has been
created, construction drawings, cutting lists and part layouts can be printed or exported directly from Vectorworks.
This project was completed in collaboration with our Vectorworks partner Interiorcad, you can view the webinar accompanying this file on the Vectorworks University (Residential Interior Drawings: Kitchen). The project
uses out of the box Vectorworks tools for the modeling of the building, the freeform conceptual modeling and layout phase and for standard cabinetry. The Interiorcad plug-in was used for generating cutting lists of the custom cabinetry including fixtures
and fittings, all with accurate construction joining details i.e. mitered joints and drawer handle profiles.
Please note that without Interiorcad installed, those cabinets created with the plug-in are not editable.
The Riverwood Townhomes project file demonstrates Vectorworks Landmark features including plants, landscape areas, site model and massing models. The file also includes hardscape, railing, stair, wall, data tags and worksheets.
The Silver Dog Café is an interiors project within an historic Greyhound Bus Terminal. The terminal was designed by William Arrasmith in the 1930s with streamlined horizontal banding and curved wrap-around facade epitomizing the Art Deco aesthetic popular at the time. A double-height space in the rear of the building presented an opportunity to design the café with outdoor seating. The project uses two reference files; one comprised of the shell building and the other a small exterior lighting element.
The High Tor project is a modern suburb townhouse development project. The main strip of residences was detailed using a data-driven BIM workflow using a typical Vectorworks file organization of Layers, Stories, and Sheet Layers for the drawing set. This project utilizes all drawing techniques with smart markers, data tags, title block, and more. You will find a developed Interior for one unit of this residential town home complex. One PDF file of the entire drawing set is included.
The Urban Residence is a small landscape project comprised of a garden courtyard and parking space. Use this file to explore the use of hardscape styles, data tags, custom records, worksheets, viewports, and smart markers. See the benefit of hyperlinked smart markers in the included PDF drawing set.
This file shows how you can use ConnectCAD to design a TV studio for a video game competition. This file is set up to show how ConnectCAD can support the installation process and help make delivering the final as built documentation at the end of a project easy and straight forwards. You will see examples of error checking; cable route planning and project tracking are used.
This simple file is intended to show you how you can start from a DWG import and using the tools and Vectorworks create a building shell and design an event for corporate conference. In this file you’ll see how data visualization can communicate when trussing should be loaded in, how audio and video tools can help you layout and play around video screens, cameras, and speakers.
This file is laid out to give you an idea of what tools are available to layout a festival. In this simple file you will see examples of how to use the Geo imaging tools, marionette objects, as well as default symbols and our event planning tools.
