Nemetschek North America has announced that several new training workbooks for VectorWorks 12 are now available to novice and experienced VectorWorks users. Produced by Resolve Software Solutions, Nemetschek North America's training partner, the workbooks include VectorWorks Fundamentals, VectorWorks 3D Modeling and Rendering, VectorWorks Architect, VectorWorks Landmark, and VectorWorks Fundamentals Teacher's Edition. Each training guide offers a mixture of step-by-step instruction and real-world context and comes with a CD containing exercise files and tutorial projects.

"While I consider myself pretty savvy on all things 2D in VectorWorks, a resource such as the VectorWorks 3D Modeling and Rendering training guide will help to extend my use of the program into 3D," says Roberto Rovira, assistant professor, Landscape Architecture Program, Florida International University. "I took a VectorWorks 3D training seminar some years ago but find myself involved in a project where I need to expand my expertise in modeling directly in three dimensions, especially because the design involves complicated non-orthogonal geometries and makes extensive use of NURBS curves. This new training resource will help me reach a new level of proficiency and enhance the powerful 2D capabilities I already take full advantage of."
