Vectorworks User Group: Use of BIM In Small Projects

The Northern California Vectorworks User Group is meeting at AIA East Bay on Tuesday, May 12 at 7:00pm. Learn how to use Building Information Modeling (BIM) features on small projects and explore the BIM sample file.

You will watch a video of Francois Levy, of Nemetschek North America, showing the use of Vectorworks' Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools on a small, residential project. Then you'll go through one of the "BIM Examples" on Nemetschek's site to see how they recommend structuring a Vectorworks file.

I've had Vectorworks for many years in the office and used by staff. Now I need to become familiar with the system as I'm doing the work!! Are there any AIA members in Contra Costa County using Vectorworks that would be willing to help a "newbie"?

Thanks...

Thanks for using my presentation, but I am emphatically not a Nemeteschek employee; I'm a university lecturer and practicing architect in Austin, Texas.

Peter, have you checked into your local user group? Check out the NNA web page to find user groups: http://www.nemetschek.net/community/usergroups.php.

I think the nearest one to you will be the Northern California VW User Group organized out of Oakland:
