Free Vectorworks Training Tutorials
We recently put together a series of 12 Vectorworks training movies, giving tasters of our online training courses. When we originally put them together, there was a seasonal theme, but of course these movies can be used all year round.

Vectorworks Site Modelling Information for Surveyors
Vectorworks Landmark and Vectorworks Architect include powerful tools for creating models of the land and for making adjustments of the land to accommodate the design proposals. The starting point for an accurate site model is an accurate site survey. We're often asked for information to provide to surveyors to ensure that data is supplied in the correct format. This PDF explains it all and is free to download. Don't forget you'll also need to know about site modelling so why not book on one of our site modelling courses?

Free Vectorworks Paving Pattern Tile Fills
Click here to download the Vectorworks tile fills created by Tamsin. We're so obsessed with Tile fills that we made these to inspire you. All you need to do is download them onto your hard drive, save them somewhere sensible, and add them as a Resource Browser favourite. And get tiling! These tile fills are also available with the Vectorworks Service Select portal.
(These are for Vectorworks 2011 or later—they will not work with earlier versions of Vectorworks - even if we save them as an earlier version.)
Vectorworks Landmark Template for Landscape Design
This sample file contains a set of sample layers and classes that can provide a useful starting point for new users of Vectorworks Landmark 2011.
It is distributed on an as-is basis, without warranty of any kind. We will be updating this template for Vectorworks 2015 shortly.
