This class will be a continuation of the Vectorworks 3D class that was offered in the spring. Participants should be familiar and comfortable with the topics that were covered there (extrude, extrude along path, and sweeping). Topics will include: building complicated objects and hierarchies, working with OpenGL and other general Renderworks outputs, and an overall approach to organizing drawing packets from 3D models. Class will be a demonstration of these techniques - participants wanting to follow along should bring their own laptop with Vectorworks already installed. Other topics and general Q&A will happen as time allows.
