Columbia, Md. (Oct. 27, 2010) - Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc. is pleased to announce that a number of its European distributors have released localized versions of the 2011 award-winning Vectorworks® line of design software, including: Vectorworks Designer, Architect, Landmark, Spotlight, Fundamentals and Renderworks®. Versions in each country's native language are now available in Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.
"I'm sure the French users will appreciate the way 2D and 3D have been integrated in Vectorworks 2011, bringing the power of 3D to ordinary 2D objects," said Thierry Beurey, owner of CESYAM, the Vectorworks distributor in France. "This version also brings many long-awaited improvements, such as text formatting, that will satisfy the needs of all Vectorworks users."
The English-language version of the Vectorworks 2011 product line was released in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia, New Zealand, and other international markets on September 14, 2010.
The 2011 version of Vectorworks software delivers several major improvements, including:
o 2D/3D integration. Vectorworks software has now, more than ever, a true 3D modeling environment. 2D planar objects can be created and edited within a planar context, where they display with all their attributes. Users can work in Top/Plan view as usual, or switch to a 3D view and continue working in the same way, with the same tools and operations.
o Improved Building Information Modeling (BIM) capabilities. The Vectorworks Architect program is even easier to use, and its state-of-the-art capabilities, new tools and features help get the job done faster and better, while communicating and exchanging files with colleagues and partners. It offers a greatly improved space object, along with new 3D wall components, and a new slab tool to enable architects to more accurately model and associate building components.
o Best-in-class rendering. Renderworks 2011 is faster, easier, and more powerful than any previous version. Now based on the robust CINEMA 4D render engine, the results are breathtaking and easier to achieve. The new engine is fully integrated into Vectorworks software, so users can seamlessly visualize their work throughout the design process, producing clear and accurate renderings. With the click of a button, rendered viewports will update as the design evolves.
Vectorworks 2011 also includes more than 70 improvements in usability and addresses some long-time wishes, such as the addition of "perfect preview" text editing, new tile fills, improved access to resource libraries and smaller file sizes.
