Before you start adding content to a project, consider the following approaches to the design process:
- Using levels. Begin the design process by defining levels for the model. See Levels.
- Importing data. If you started the design process using another CAD program (such as AutoCAD), you can import existing data. Vasari imports various CAD formats, including DWG, DXF, DGN, and ACIS SAT files, as well as SketchUp (SKP) files.
- Massing. You can start a project by designing a conceptual model. After you create basic shapes with the massing tools, you can convert mass faces to building elements. See Massing Studies and Conceptual Design Environment.
