Global design and BIM software solutions provider Vectorworks, Inc. announces the 2019 release of Vectorworks Architect, Landmark, Spotlight, Fundamentals and Designer, as well as BraceworksTM and Vision. With a focus on increasing design efficiency through overall performance and quality, this new release offers innovations and enhancements to significantly improve the 3D and BIM modeling, 2D documentation and presentation workflows for designers in the architecture, landscape, entertainment and interior design industries. “For this release, we listened closely to our customers and balanced new innovations with exceptional quality and performance improvements,” said Vectorworks CEO Dr. Biplab Sarkar. “Specifically, in Vectorworks 2019 we concentrated on our customers’ most common workflows and usage patterns to increase their overall productivity with Vectorworks products across the board.” Users of all Vectorworks products will enjoy significantly faster workflows and improved software performance thanks to multiple core support in the Vectorworks Graphics Module, new layer and class search and filter options, and image effects. Vectorworks Architect and Landmark customers will experience improved BIM capabilities, including 3D site model sculpting; the unique ability to have BIM objects display with varying levels of detail in plan, elevation and section drawings; enhanced openBIM interoperability; and a new partnership integration with AutoTurn online for analyzing vehicle swept paths. Vectorworks Spotlight users will enjoy support of the new My Virtual Rig (MVR) import and export file format, as well as enhancements to 3D modeling with Spotlight tools and commands. Braceworks users will benefit from support for bridle analysis. And users of Vision will discover an improved user interface and up to 7x faster performance of the previz application. "Vectorworks 2019 is a release that will have a dramatic impact on productivity, allowing designers to make their day-to-day design work faster and easier,” said Vice President of Product Development Steve Johnson. “Users will experience the benefits of this version the moment they open the new software and see files open up to four times faster. Advances with the Vectorworks Graphics Module now take advantage of all available user hardware, and harnessing the power of all available CPU cores with increased usage of GPU on sheet layers makes all workflows feel much faster. Users will greatly benefit from the ability to refine renderings and images without having to export to Photoshop. And, the ability to add, show and adjust the level of detail that hybrid objects display in a drawing is something no other BIM program offers.” To learn more about the release of Vectorworks 2019, please visit vectorworks.net/2019.
