ElementsCAD XS Libraries
ElementsCAD XS includes symbols from the office, living, kitchen, bedroom areas as well as 3D handles from various manufacturers, seating furniture or 3D sanitary objects from Villeroy & Boch in the Vectorworks library.
All parts of ElementsCAD XS, such as the Vectorworks library, are also included in the full version ElementsCAD.
CAD Explorer manages the Vectorworks library.
It contains objects such as hatches, symbols (blocks), databases, spreadsheets, etc.
The Architecture version allows a Vectorworks library to be exported directly to external library drawings.
In the basic version you should create the desired symbol or accessory directly in the corresponding accessory drawing.
Vectorworks Library – the different types of accessories
Vectorworks distinguishes various accessories.
All types of accessories are managed in the accessory palette. This ensures a clean structure. Any accessory that comes from another drawing or library drawing will be imported at the same time as soon as it is used in the drawing. If an object is deleted from the drawing,
this will NOT automatically delete the accessories! This can be done using the “Clean up” command in the “Extras” menu.
