Vectorworks Architect Joins an Elite Group of Architectural BIM Software Programs to achieve Both Import and Export Certification

Columbia, Md. – Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc. is pleased to announce that Vectorworks® Architect software has successfully passed IFC Coordination View 2.0 Import certification. With this announcement, Nemetschek Vectorworks is one of a small group of architectural software developers to achieve both IFC Coordination View 2.0 Import and Export certification.

The IFC Certification 2.0 procedure, developed and managed by buildingSMART International, requires BIM software vendors to pass new, more comprehensive and rigorous tests with the intent of promoting consistent and reliable interoperability across all the participating certified BIM programs.

"With this milestone, we once again show that Vectorworks is a leading-edge BIM solution for architectural design and documentation," said Robert Anderson, vice president of integrated practice at Nemetschek Vectorworks. "We continually strive to be in ‘the front of the pack' when it comes to open-standards interoperability, given the building popularity of IFC and its increasing presence in practical, real-world solutions for all the stakeholders in the AECM marketplace."

Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) is a neutral exchange format, not controlled by any single software vendor. As such, it provides a robust way to exchange BIM models between various software programs.

With this certification, Vectorworks Architect has demonstrated support for IFC Import, based on the Coordination View 2.0 and supporting the Architecture Exchange Requirements. IFC Interfaces are delivered with Vectorworks Architect and automatically installed, as they are fully integrated into the software.

The certified Coordination View 2.0 IFC Import will be available with Vectorworks Architect 2014 Service Pack 2, which will be released this month. Vectorworks Architect achieved IFC Export certification in June of 2013.
