Jonathan Pickup’s 3D Modeling in Vectorworks Now Available for Purchase

Columbia, Maryland (July 27, 2009)—Nemetschek North America is pleased to announce that Jonathan Pickup’s latest training guide, 3D Modeling in Vectorworks, is now available for purchase. The tutorial is a must-have workbook for anyone seeking to learn how to free-form model with Vectorworks, as it will bring users to a competent level of 3D capability through exercises aimed at building a foundation of 3D Vectorworks skills. Specifically, the tutorial will show users how to create 3D forms through the use of extrudes, sweeps, solids, NURBS, loft surfaces, and 3D primitives.

“I've just finished teaching from this manual, and it's always amazing how much fun 3D modeling is with Vectorworks,” explains Jonathan. “The users learn quickly and have a lot of fun. Vectorworks has some amazing power in 3D modeling, and this manual is designed to show you how easy it is to get started.”

Although the tutorial is based on version 2009, it can be used successfully with prior versions of Vectorworks. In addition, this intelligent, instructional manual is appropriate for both students and professionals and provides a very practical approach to learning 3D Vectorworks skills. The hard-copy workbook comes with a companion CD that contains exercise files and the entire manual as a PDF file with embedded instructional movies. Each workbook retails for $75.

This tutorial is part of Nemetschek North America’s self-paced training options and is for people who like to learn on their own and at their own pace. To read the sample chapters or to purchase the tutorial, please go to:
