  1. When I emailed my local sales rep (after no response from Nemetcheck a few days ago) about reverting back to VW2009 from VW2011 because of the unbearably SLOW speed and HUGE file sizes in VW2011, she said the SP3 for VW2011 would be out very soon.

    Does anyone know more about the SP3 and what fixes might be in it? When it might be out?

    After being Vectorworks biggest fan since VW2008, I'm testing a 3rd set permit of drawings in ArchiCAD 14 (far SUPERIOR architectural software) and ready to toss VW to the curb, BUT I own VW and locally there are far more VW users. So I'm looking for a ray of light to stick with VW2011 and not have flushed $1000 down the toilet in VW upgrading.

  3. Have been a VW Architect & Renderworks user since 2008. Upgraded to VW2011 from VW2009. Have since upgraded to new MacBook Pro, then upgraded that to 8GB ram and solid state hard drive. But VW 2011 is seriously sow. Cinema 4D is very fast compared to previous rendering, but rendering is presentation fluff when it's the city & contractors who need 2D B&W drawings to get the building built.

    VW 2011 Problems:

    - does not fully use multi-core processors (although cinema 4D does)

    - elevations & sections redraws are dysfunctionally slow

    - sheet set publishing PDF almost unbearably slow

    - file sizes are getting too big on (even when purged)

    - plus I've experienced almost all problems mentioned above.

    Solution: ArchiCAD 14

    - full 64 bit multi-core processing

    - near instant sections & elevations

    - direct plotting to greyscale PDF under 20 seconds 10-12 pages

    - file sizes about 1/10 the size of VW
