Nemetschek North America
has announced that it’s developing training CDs for its VectorWorks and Industry Series products. The VectorWorks training CDs are currently available; the Industry Series training CDs are still in development.
Nemetschek’s VectorWorks and the Industry Series products are a collection of 2D and 3D drafting and modeling applications designed for various needs ranging from architecture to mechanical drafting to landscaping and set design and lighting. Built around similar core technology, the new 9.5 versions of Nemetschek’s products are compatible with both Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X.
Developed in conjunction with In Medias Res, a Canadian training and consulting company, the training CDs cover basic and advanced topics in VectorWorks, RenderWorks, Architect, Landmark, Spotlight and Mechanical. The CDs will also feature hands-on exercises to reinforce concepts introduced in each lesson.
Each CD introduces concepts of the user interface of each application, specialized tools offered in each app and advanced usage instructions.
VectorWorks Foundations I and II are now available for purchase from the Nemetschek e-store for US$75 each or $125 as a bundle. (A 15 percent discount is also available for products purchased through December 28.) Training CDs for the Industry Series products will follow in January, February, and March.
