Training News: Sixth Edition of 3D Modeling in Vectorworks Manual Now Out

Author Jonathan Pickup has revised his popular book for use with the latest Vectorworks 2014 software


Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc., the maker of the Vectorworks CAD/BIM software product line, has announced the release of “3D Modeling with Vectorworks, Six Edition,” training manual by author and Vectorworks trainer Jonathan Pickkup.

“This manual covers one of the best capabilities of Vectorworks software, creating 3D models,” Pickup said. “It is really fun and rewarding to create the forms you want and be able to move around them to view your work from different angles.”

Through a combination of written step-by-step instruction, informational videos and practical tutorials, Pickup educates readers on new techniques for creating complex 3D models with Vectorworks 2014 software. He opens the manual with an overview of basic commands and tool functions and continues on to the completion of a practice project, making this guide essential for all professionals interested in expanding their 3D modeling capabilities. Once Vectorworks users learn to draw with objects rather than lines and place those objects on working planes, they can produce advanced models using simple tools.

U.S. customers can order the manual online at For sales outside the U.S., Vectorworks software users can contact their local distributors at
