Latest release from Vectorworks, Inc. focuses on BIM usability, design productivity and analysis
Global design and BIM software developer Vectorworks, Inc. has released the Spanish version of its Vectorworks 2018 product line, which includes Vectorworks® Architect, Landmark, Spotlight, Designer and Fundamentals. New this year is Braceworks™, a structural load analysis add-on module targeted to designers and riggers working on temporary structures. The Spanish version follows the English version, released this past September, and joins the additional language versions of the product line that will all be available by spring of 2018, including: Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Japanese, Polish, Italian, Norwegian and Portuguese.
“The availability of our 2018 software in Spanish, along with the continued rollout of our other languages, solidifies our mission to empower designers worldwide, so that they can create unmatched experiences,” said Vectorworks CEO Dr. Biplab Sarkar. “What makes Vectorworks 2018 stand out from other releases is the emphasis on robust and efficient workflows, as well as the substantial usability improvements.”
A few notable features from Vectorworks 2018 include:
- Multiple drawing views: Use multiple views of a project simultaneously, and begin work in one view pane and finish it in another. Switch effortlessly between viewports, views and visibility settings — simply set up panes and view them all at once. Instantly gauge the impact of a design change across 3D, plan, section and elevation views, and even start a rendering in one view while working in another.
- Direct section and elevation editing: Edit models directly from viewports: add openings, align and distribute windows, reposition doors across multiple layers, reshape walls — it’s all possible. Change the 3D views while in the section to see how edits simultaneously affect plans and model views. And, create better-looking, more-accurate drawings in a fraction of the time.
- Easier title block customization: Customize items such as variables and orientation, choose from an unlimited set of information to include in a title block, and use styles to more simply manage many title blocks across one or multiple projects.
- Direct site model contour editing: Edit a site model easier than ever before with improved site model settings and direct 2D contour editing. Modify each contour line as easily as editing a polyline.
