Aside from the VectorWorks Designer and the Renderworks package, which are included in the trial edition, there are also other modules that can be purchased separately, namely Fundamentals, Architect, Landmark, or Spotlight.
Create compelling CAD designs
Relying on the powerful rendering engine of CINEMA 4D, VectorWorks can produce accurate designs, enabling you to bring your ideas to life. It is compatible with some of the most widely-used file formats, such as DXF, DWG, DWF, EPSF, 3DS, PDF, SAT, Shapefile, IGES, Rhino, Parasolid and so on, while also featuring importing capabilities for SketchUp 3D models.
Depending on what you want to use VectorWorks for, you can download and install one or more libraries during setup, using the so-called ‘VectorWorks Package Manager’. The available collections include architectural objects for building designs, landscape elements, furniture, light systems and so on.
CAD tool for architects and entertainment designers
VectorWorks Designer enables you to create simple to complex designs and generate BIM (Business Information Models) and SIM (Site Information Modeling) capabilities for your project. This way, you can accompany a model with complete documentation to include material analysis, cost and energy efficiency estimations, as well as building surrounding inspection.
But the great thing about VectorWorks is its versatility: it is not limited to architectural modeling, but covers others areas, such as technical modeling (for mechanical components) or scenic and lighting design, which is specific to television and the entertainment sector, in general.
Powerful CAD tool that meets industry standards
Based on cutting edge technology, VectorWorks delivers a plethora of tools and options ready to help you create professional-looking designs and compelling product presentations. With its help, the road from concept to the 3D model and documentation is shorter.
Thanks to a powerful engine, it is capable of rendering complex models, while the sketch rendering capabilities enable you to turn simple drawings into stylish hand-sketched designs.
Whether your specialty is architecture, landscape, or entertainment design, Vectorworks gives you the freedom to create without having to use additional applications.
The program provides a competitive edge by offering a large set of design tools in a single, intuitive interface. Draft, model, and present with Vectorworks – the ultimate solution for the professional who needs it all.
