Residential Garden Design with Vectorworks Landmark is updated for 2014.

| January 24, 2014

Columbia, Md. — Nemetschek Vectorworks has announced the publication of a new training guide, Residential Garden Design with Vectorworks Landmark, Sixth Edition. In this book, author Tamsin Slatter, a leading Vectorworks Landmark expert in the U.K., covers the workflow for residential garden designers using Vectorworks Landmark with Renderworks software.

The tutorial, with an accompanying DVD, includes the typical work stages of the residential landscape designer. Readers will begin by setting up a work environment and then move through the various stages of the design process in order to create a garden plan that can be presented in both 2D and 3D. The book is designed to build a foundation of essential knowledge to help users understand the way Vectorworks software is intended to work within a design discipline.

“With the release of Vectorworks Landmark 2014, Nemetschek Vectorworks has once again improved the design process for landscape designers,” says Slatter. “The new and improved 3D modeling Taper Face and Twist tools help create bespoke landscape items quickly and easily whilst the Displacement Mapping of textures further enhances the photorealistic visuals that many designers use to convey design intent. In addition, the new Publish facility will save time for those designers needing to exchange drawings with other professionals on a regular basis. With these new tools and many other improvements, the latest edition of Residential Garden Design with Vectorworks Landmark has been produced after a complete review of processes to enable all designers to make the most of these fantastic new capabilities.”

The tutorial is now available for pre-order, and will ship on February 3. Residential Garden Design with Vectorworks Landmark is part of Nemetschek Vectorworks’ collection of training tools designed for people who like to learn on their own and at their own pace.
