When it is simple to do everything, you can create anything.
In this latest version, Vectorworks 2021 has focussed on providing more efficiency and reliability with your designs.
Work smarter with Smart Options Display
Stay in the modelling space with tools at the tip of your mouse.
The new Smart Options Display is customisable so that you can easily access your most used tools, last-used tools, tool modes, and standard views with fewer mouse clicks.
Dial in on Quick Search
Find any tool or menu command by simply typing in what you need. Quick Search ensures that you can quickly and easily access these whilst at the same time freeing up space on your monitor.
Customise your interface with detachable tab palettes
Handle complex models and documentation work with increased visibility. Now you can detatch tabs from palettes and either dock them or let the float – or even move them to a second monitor to have a clear field for modelling, whilst having them accessible.
Faster 3D navigation with saved VGM cache
With the new optimised Vectorworks Graphic Module (VGM) you can have 5 times faster file loading speed. Transition to 3D views and layer visibility is also faster, with smoother navigation in 3D using the Flyover tools or changing views.
3D modelling enhancements
Improvements to the Push/Pull tool now support additional drawing tools such as the Line tool, which creates a streamlined method to split the face of a solid and manipulate the geometry.
Duplicate array and move by points
This enhanced tool now works in 3D views. The modes available by the Move by Points tool have also been updates to allow a live preview of your operation, giving you real-time feedback as you design.
Grid Line tool for structural grids
You can now create a structural grid that is customisable and streamlines the drawing process by letting you draw a grid in plan – and having it and any future changes automatically appear in all views. No need to draw in multiple drawing views.
Create accurate models with materials
The new Materials resource allows you to define the graphical attributes and data of building materaisl all in one location, inclusing 2D and 3D representation in plan and section views.
Streamline dosumentation coordination with smart markers
New options allow you to toggle off and on annotations, improve snapping, control background fills, and quickly resize and align multiple PDFs at the same time.
Boost BIM exchange process with Revit export improvements
Last year Vectorworks became the first BIM authorised program to support Revit export format provided by the open design Alliance. Now there is even better quality in the modelling objects and data exchange between Vectorworks and Revit.
Simplify data transfer and formatting with Excel import/export
New Vectorworks fully supports Microsoft Excel formats, so you are now able to directly transfer data and formatting between Excel and Vectorworks worksheets, export Vectorworks worksheets to Excel to share information with your collaborators, and import Excel spreadsheets to Vectorworks to continue working with the same data.
Whether your specialty is architecture, landscape, or entertainment design – or anything in between – Vectorworks Designer software enables you to draft, model, and present in a single, intuitive interface.
Explore the possibilities of BIM and beyond while benefiting from the freedom to design in 2D or 3D with a suite of intuitive, flexible tools that encourage you to create and explore any form.
Innovative irrigation tools, industry-specific objects, powerful worksheets, and more help you produce 2D and 3D concepts, analyse pre- and post-development site conditions, and create construction documents.
Develop and deliver ideas to create your next unmatched experience with industry-leading drafting and modelling tools, realistic renderings, integrated database worksheets, lighting devices, and more.
Vectorworks’ basic design software package offers 2D/3D capabilities and an intuitive, easy-to-use modelling and documentation platform that works the way designers think.
Vision software puts the power to pre-visualise and cue your show at your fingertips, working with your console of choice to help you pre-program before you even set foot in your event space.
The Braceworks™ add-on module for Vectorworks Spotlight and Designer provides design, production, and rigging professionals with an easy way to gauge the performance of temporary structures under load.
Service Select is a premier maintenance program that provides you with the best pricing, priority technical support, VIP access to downloads, access to a growing library of on-demand learning tutorials, and more.
