Columbia, Maryland (April 20, 2010)—Nemetschek North America is pleased to announce the publication of a new training guide for users of Vectorworks® software. Architect, author and experienced Vectorworks user Daniel Jansenson wrote the guide, Remarkable Renderworks, to help users gain proficiency in Renderworksâ„¢, the essential rendering tool designed to work seamlessly with Vectorworks software.
This tutorial uses an exercise-based format to cover the basic tools and techniques that will enable designers to create impressive renderings of Vectorworks projects. By reading the chapters and then experimenting with the included files, the reader will gain a clear understanding of the methods discussed in the book. This practice-based format was developed to help the newcomer become familiar with the tools quickly and achieve productivity in a short amount of time. The manual is intended for the Renderworks user who already has some experience with the fundamentals of Vectorworks programs.
"Beyond the basic Renderworks tools, the book includes information about rendering lighting scenes using a variety of techniques," said Jansenson. "While teaching, I've often found that people sometimes shy away from experimenting with certain rendering methods because of the time it can take to complete a rendering. One of the purposes of this book is to help reduce the time invested in setting up renderings by providing basic lighting and rendering guidance for different light types and rendering methods."
Remarkable Renderworks is part of Nemetschek North America's self-paced training options. These training materials are for people who like to learn on their own and at their own pace. For more information and to purchase this tutorial, please visit www.nemetschek.net/training/guides.php.
