- Enjoy enhanced folder sharing on the cloud.

Additional Service Pack New Functionality
- IFC export: This service pack includes improvements to the base quantities included for IFC export. Common objects, including walls, spaces, roofs, slabs, hardscapes, landscape areas, and columns, now have accurate base quantities assigned by default. This provides better interoperability with software packages that do Quantity Takeoff (QTO) calculations, and 4D and 5D BIM simulations. (Vectorworks Design Series)
