Description of this Book

The best-selling CAD software on the Mac and an industry-standard on Windows, VectorWorks 10 includes a slew of new enhancements to its robust 2D drafting and 3D modeling tools, including a streamlined interface, new tools to help you draw faster, advanced presentation features, improved VectorScripting, native Mac OS X support, and integrated 3D modeling tools. VectorWorks 10 for Windows and Macintosh: Visual QuickStart Guide will help you get up-to-speed on all of these new features quickly and easily. Updated to reflect the program's streamlined interface and tools, this step-by-step task-based reference explains the new Resource Browser, touches on the advanced 3D modeling tools, and includes an entirely new chapter on customizing the VectorWorks interface to make tools more accessible, create custom keyboard shortcuts, and create highly detailed and structured templates that allow you to maintain consistency over all of their drawings.Unlike competing books, which mimic the software's manual in their text-heavy formats, VectorWorks 10 for Windows and Macintosh: Visual QuickStart Guide comes loaded with screenshots that enable you to get up and running fast with this powerful, yet affordable, CAD software.

Tom currently works in the Orthopaedic Biomechanics Laboratory at the University of Iowa.
