2D and 3D CAD software that makes it possible for design professionals to draft small or huge scale designs while collaborating with other designers on the same project
VectorWorks is a powerful, versatile and comprehensive suite of computer-aided design tools that will prove to be extremely useful when designing buildings, landscapes, theatrical productions, lighting plans, and so on.
Note that the VectorWorks trial installer provides access only to the VectorWorks Designer and Renderworks capabilities. In addition, you will need to buy a separate license for each VectorWorks module separately: Fundamentals, Designer, Architect, Landmark, or Spotlight.
Powerful CAD tools that meet the industry specific 2D/3D and BIM standards
VectorWorks packs everything you need for creating high quality designs in a clean, organized and user friendly interface. Moreover, the VectorWorks Package Manager application offers you the possibility to effortlessly download and install additional libraries designed to work with specific VectorWorks products.
Furthermore, VectorWorks provides support for most popular design data file formats, such as DXF, DWG, DWF, EPSF, PDF, PICT, Shapefile, Whorksheet, 3DS, IGES, SAT, SPET, Rhino, Parasolid X_T, or SketchUp. This way, you can import projects from other applications and modify the design by using the VectorWorks capabilities.
Create high quality CAD projects in a streamlined environment
VectorWorks enables you to develop Building Information Models, in 2D or 3D, with virtually no restrictions imposed. Thanks to the Parasolid 3D modeling engine, you will also be able to render complex models.
What’s more, VectorWorks is capable to analyze the site conditions and can run simulations in order to analyze the effect of the sun movement upon your construction. In addition, when designing entertainment events, you can simulate the effect of different lighting devices and create lighting plots.
Comprehensive design solution sporting a plethora of efficient tools and a streamlined workflow
VectorWorks provides a wide collection of computer aided design tools that can be used to develop high quality 2D and 3D projects, render the final result, and analyze the effect of the surrounding environment upon the constructions. To conclude, VectorWorks can help you bring your ideas to life and identify the best solutions for your design problems.
