  1. During the AIA Conference on Architecture 2017 in Orlando, Florida from April 27-April 29, global design and BIM software developer Vectorworks, Inc. will be at booth 2863 in the Software & Technology Pavilion. Vectorworks will offer personalized Vectorworks Architect software demos and presentations on features that enable designers to complete any project in any phase of design. Upcoming immersive technologies will also be previewed. Vectorworks Architect is an industry-leading architectural design and BIM software that helps connect the entire design process from concept to construction in one platform. From 2D drafting and 3D modeling to creating coordinated construction documents and fully developed BIM models, Vectorworks Architect’s broad set of design and BIM capabilities allow architects to do more than just information modeling, while increasing productivity and unlocking creativity. With Vectorworks, designers can take on a project of any scale, from urban planning, high-rise buildings, to interior renovations and fit outs. “Depending on the types of projects or the phase of design, an architect’s workflow can vary greatly,” said Dan Monaghan, vice president of marketing at Vectorworks. “This can lead architects to use many different software programs to get jobs out the door. Although BIM is essential in today’s processes, the truth is, as an architect you need more than BIM, and Vectorworks offers more.” Furthermore, Vectorworks Architect has the largest number of import and export capabilities in the industry, allowing designers to seamlessly collaborate and share with everyone involved in the design process. During AIA, attendees can take an in-depth look at Vectorworks Architect by scheduling a personalized demo. Specifically, there will be demo stations of 3D laser scanning, advanced 3D modeling tools, virtual reality and BIM. DEMOS There will be three new immersive technologies in the years to come that will offer new ways to view and present models to better sell clients. Demos for the following will take place at the show: -Previously introduced with Vectorworks 2017 in September of 2016, web view and virtual reality will receive substantial usability and visual improvements, such as ambient occlusion. -Using panorama capabilities, designers and clients may experience the model in wide immersive view. -Using an iOS® or Android™ mobile device and a 2D floor plan, designers may benefit from Augmented Reality technology to view a 3D, virtual version of their model on top of their plan. Email Vectorworks’ Senior Marketing Program Coordinator Samantha Link at Slink@vectorworks.net to schedule a demo of these technologies during AIA.

  2. What is the best i.e. most effective, efficient and manageable way to draw furniture using Vectorworks architect BIM on a large 500 apartment project? This is includes bathrooms, kitchens, beds, chairs and tables, which will all be identically replicated 100s of times and are likely to require ongoing editing. We will need to show them on GA plans at 1:50, but not necessarily on the section drawings. We also need to provide kitchen and bathroom layouts at 1:20. Should we reference these directly from the same model or draw these separately? Thanks
  3. Can someone help me add a column within a framing member report that would show the framing member class for each member? Thank you
  4. We have been using vectorworks for 2d drafting exclusively, and have come to the conclusion that we would like to intergrate BIM, that said my primary questions are, How do we get started?, are there more "meaty" resources and tutorials somewhere that really get into the "nuts and bolts" of the entire process and workflow? has anyone else made the switch and if so what was your approach? also any and all advice is welcome. Thank you,
  5. The crux of global design and BIM software developer Vectorworks, Inc.’s philosophy has always involved leveraging input and implementing product feedback from practicing architects, landscape designers, landscape architects and lighting designers, among other design professionals. To further this commitment, three new industry experts will be joining Vectorworks’ ever-growing product marketing team: Luc Lefebvre, senior architect product specialist, Jim Woodward, senior entertainment product specialist and Brian Nicholson, senior landscape product specialist. Led by Jeremy Powell, senior marketing director at Vectorworks, the broad team of industry experts acts as advocates for customers and the industry relating to the marketing and development of products. They provide one-on-one demonstrations of product capabilities, participate in professional association committees and visit firms in the field as a means to generate current insights for industry-specific tool development, as well as act as fountains of industry knowledge for other internal teams. Regarding the new additions, Powell said, “We are elated to welcome Luc, Jim and Brian to the Vectorworks family. With their diverse backgrounds and histories of excellence and service to the advancement of design within the architecture, landscape and entertainment industries, I’m sure they’ll make an immediate impact as champions of our software. And, as recently practicing designers, they’ll bring additional perspective to our team to ensure our products speak to the needs of designers.” Delve deeper into these new industry experts’ skills, backgrounds and career plans. Luc Lefebvre, OAQ, LEED AP BD+C, Senior Architect Product Specialist at Vectorworks Coming from a family of builders, Lefebvre knew he wanted to study architecture from adolescence. He kick-started his journey at Montreal University, where he received his undergraduate degree in architecture. Since then, he’s enjoyed more than 20 successful years in the business. Most recently, he served as project manager and BIM manager at King + King Architects in Syracuse, NY, where he focused on designing educational facilities and acted as a BIM consultant for both internal employees and other firms. Some of his past projects include Le Moyne College Master Plan and Madden School of Business, SUNY Cortland DeGroat Hall and SUNY Morrisville Mohawk Hall. In his office, Lefebrve was responsible for streamlining building information modeling processes and played an integral part in King + King Architects’ company-wide transition to BIM using Vectorworks Architect. This, in part, was his motivation to work for Vectorworks, as he enjoyed moving his firm from 2D to a 3D BIM workflow. Regarding his shift in careers, Lefebrve said, “I felt like I had just scratched the surface of Vectorworks’ capabilities, and I needed to know more about the software. I wanted to help other people experience that same excitement from learning how to do BIM projects with Vectorworks.” In his new position, he plans to narrow in on the BIM process, as he’s an ardent believer in Vectorworks software as the all-in-one design tool because it eliminates the need for further applications in the total design of a project. To explore Lefebrve’s BIM know-how, register for his upcoming webinar, “The Why and How of BIM Implementation,” on February 23 at 2:00 p.m. ET. Jim Woodward, Senior Entertainment Specialist at Vectorworks Woodward is another long-time Vectorworks supporter. With more than 35 years of experience in the entertainment design industry, Woodward began touring cross country as a lighting technician as a teenager and never looked back. He later opened his own design company in Boston, ExhibitLogic, with his wife, Shirley Woodward, where they tackled 3D visualization, rendering and modeling for a wide variety of industries, such as concerts, theatrical events, film, television, corporate events, trade shows, museums, architectural firms and retail stores. From spearheading concert-like booth and exhibit designs for the NAB Show, the Comdex convention and the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) to touring with artists like Aerosmith, Neil Diamond and Yes, he’s had an illustrious career that has taken him around the world. Furthermore, he has guest lectured at places such as Boston University and Symphony Hall in Boston, as well as worked on productions such as “The Proposal” and “Ted 2.” While Woodward’s day-to-day was never the same in his career, there was one common thread: a passion for technology. He started out using Vectorworks Spotlight early on in its existence and immediately came to realize it as the go-to design software for entertainment design. As he dove deeper and deeper into the program, he discovered his passion for pushing the technology’s limits and became widely known in the entertainment industry as a Vectorworks expert. Eventually, he began regularly providing training and consulting services with the software. “After I gave my first Vectorworks demo, I was on cloud nine,” said Woodward. “All these years, I’d been under the stage, behind the stage, pretty much anywhere but on center stage. It was my first time in the spotlight, and from there, the rest was history.” With his Vectorworks skills so advanced at this point, it was only logical that this was his next career move. In his new role, he intends to be a liaison to help communicate industry trends back to the team at Vectorworks, as well as help intermediate designers take their drawing skills to the next level. To see Woodward in action, register for the upcoming webinar he’s hosting, “Adapting New Technologies to your Production Design Workflow,” on February 28 at 2:00 p.m. ET. Brian Nicholson, ASLA, PLA, GRP, LEED AP, Senior Landscape Specialist at Vectorworks Growing up in the mountains in southern Colorado, Nicholson was ingrained with an appreciation for nature and the outdoors early in his childhood. Thus, he received an undergraduate degree in landscape horticulture with a concentration in design/construction from Colorado State University. This degree, along with multiple summers of construction experience, prepared him to own and operate an award-winning residential design/build firm in Denver. He later earned a master of landscape architecture at the University of Colorado Denver and began practicing urban design and landscape architecture internationally. After laying the groundwork for his career in landscape architecture, Nicholson quickly discovered his inclination for sustainability. His passion for eco-friendly design shines through in projects from his past 18-plus years of experience in horticulture, landscape architecture and construction administration for firms like studioINSITE, RNL and Wenk Associates. Nicholson has applied his sustainable expertise to a variety of projects, including international community master plans, institutional campuses, municipal buildings, streetscapes and residential homes. For one of his most notable projects, he worked as the lead landscape designer for the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s (NREL) Research Support Facility, which was designed to be net-zero energy and achieved LEED platinum certification and sustainable SITES gold certification. He also handled the site construction administration for additional projects across 35 acres on NREL’s campus. Currently, Nicholson maintains multiple landscape architect licenses and is an accredited green roof professional and LEED accredited professional. He also serves as the ASLA Colorado chapter president where he develops value-added programs for members and advocates for the chapter at the national level. Regarding his career move, Nicholson said, “Technology is my passion, whether it’s design software or products incorporated in my designs. I’m constantly looking at tools on the leading edge of sustainability, like Vectorworks, so I’ve had my eye on the company for a while.” As a result, when the job opened up, Nicholson said it was a perfect fit for where he wanted to take his career. Nicholson is very experienced with Revit, AutoCAD, SketchUp and the Adobe suite from prior roles, and he’s eager to dive into Landmark. His long-term goals are to expand the adoption of Landmark within the landscape architecture, design and urban planning industry.
  6. Hi all, I wanted to know if anyone may have examples of BIM project execution planning implementations for any of their recent projects. I am working with an instructor at Taliesin (The Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture) that is teaching a course on contracts. She'd like to highlight how BIM projects may differ from "traditional" projects, especially in context of my work related to the National BIM Standard - United States Version 3 and the Penn State BIM Project Execution Planning (BIM PxP) materials. Part of the course is to get the students to examine a BIM PxP case study and possibly role play and construct a new scenario for themselves. Any help is greatly appreciated. We can redact sensitive information, but also give recognition where desired and deserved. If you have a project, please contact me via email or PM. Thanks, Jeffrey W. Ouellette, Assoc. AIA, IES Sr. Product Specialist - Architecture Vectorworks, Inc.
  7. I'm having issues importing manufacturer product RVT files from a BIM store. The files open ok but there are no textures, just class texture objects. i can't see a way of bringing in the respective material library. From the same place i've brought in a rfa file and that seems to work fine with the objects rendering correctly and when i look in the Resources Browser there are attached records. Can anybody share any tips on how to do this/ resolve please
  8. Good afternoon everyone, This is more of a wish list item more than anything. Dealing with different engineers that work in autocad, i find it a bit frustrating to export elevations with hatches in BIM mode to be converted into linework. More importantly, when selecting option for hatches to be converted to a separate layer, any exported elevation (not plans) hatches in vectorworks aren't converted to a different layer, instead they remain in the original layer of the wall type class. As a result the dwg files become bloated and hard to modify. Any way to change this? I know a workaround, however, its a bit cumbersome - which essentially converts any surface into a poly - that can use hatch information. This exports just fine into required hatches, just a nuissance to do for every job. Perhaps there is another way? Thanks in advance !!
  9. Any advice over 'best' file format to use to bring objects (furniture and sanitaryware in this particular case) into VW2017. Of the manufacturers I'd like to use, Revit families are most popular, & skp, and some ifc's. I created some from a manufacturer's 3d dwg's (Morgan furniture), looked perfect but there was something in them that VW just didn't seem to like. Successful methodologies/ hints/ tips for creating good quality VW models from manufacturer's models most effectively (ie. with minimum of re-modelling & time) from other file formats would be appreciated.
  10. CAD blogger Ralph Grabowski has an interview with the Bricscad CEO on his blog. Apart from the CEO's talk on his own dwg based CAD program it also contains his perspective on the future of CAD and how it may change. It also mentions BIM/IFC future (his perspective) and interoperability vs a move to cloud and open vs closed formats/systems, increasing regulations pressure etc. The article can be found at http://www.upfrontezine.com/2016/11/erik-de-keyser-on-the-future-of-bricscad.html Even though it does not address Vectoworks directly (except for the BIM part) of what he says aligns with things I've seen/read over the past year or two. @JimW I'm a bit curious how Vectorworks thinks the CAD/BIM market will develop and how it may affect VW users given that a lot of VW users are small offices sometimes working in multiple disciplines.
  11. For those interested, on Architosh there is an article about a book describing using BIM and Vectorworks, it has showcases etc. as well as tips on how to use Vectorworks in BIM. Even though it is somewhat UK centric it may still be useful for those outside the UK as the underlying information can probably be used elsewhere too. http://architosh.com/2016/01/review-evaluating-the-case-in-jonathan-reeves-new-book-innovative-vectorworks-bim/

  14. After fighting it for years - out of the blue the partners here have decided that we are going "Full On BIM." We are moving from a 2D only workflow (a basic one at that) - no plugin objects - no walls or doors. Any advice on the transition? Any missteps to try and avoid?
  15. The eighth edition of the Build Earth Live (BEL) series has announced the seven winning teams for this year’s Hyperloop competition. This edition challenged teams to collaborate across borders and time zones within a 48-hour time frame by using BIM technology to design Hyperloop termini connecting Dubai and Fujairah. As headline sponsor of the event, global design and BIM software developer Vectorworks, Inc. is proud to congratulate the winning teams that rose to the top. The winning teams were among 65 participating teams made up of 250 participants from 29 countries. Other sponsors include the Dubai Future Foundation, Hyperloop One and Dubai’s Road and Transport Authority. After the seven teams were narrowed down as finalists, two representatives from each team traveled to Dubai to present their projects to a live audience and judges panel. Finalists included team members from the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, United Kingdom, Northern Ireland, Brazil, Japan, the Dominican Republic, the United States, France, Ukraine, Poland, Germany and Canada. Team Mobius was deemed the overall winner for the event, followed by team BIM Unlimited taking home the Best Multi-Disciplinary BIM & Use of Interoperability award. Additional award accolades included team HyperNova and Future Architect’s, who both won a Discretionary award, team BIM Fusion’s BIM for Sustainability or Constructability award, team rLoop’s Best use of BIM for Design, Drama and Excitement award and team Hyper Poland’s BIM for Innovation award.

In past years, the winning designs were never more than models. This year’s edition was unique, as the United Arab Emirate (UAE) government is planning to build Hyperloop infrastructure in the near future, so one of the winning designs might be built. If built, the travel time between Dubai and Fujairah would be reduced to less than 10 minutes. “The Build Earth Live Hyperloop competition has exceeded all expectations. With thanks to His Excellency Saif Al Aleeli, CEO of Dubai Future Foundation backing the 8th edition of the competition, we received phenomenal international attention and team registrations,” said Tony Ryan, CEO of Asite. “In short, the response was off the Richter scale. The results speak for themselves.”
  16. How work VW Architectural users ?
  17. Past week I was working on a project where i needed to use surface hatches. I think it can be implemented beter. When i was thinking about this i realized its 'bigger' then only the surface hatch part. To be honest i think there should be an overhaul of how classes work an what you can do with them. In general classes should have to ability to work as materials. This would mean you would create a class for every material with al the specifications needed (including R-ratings and other properties like weight/m3 etc.) With the new forum its easier to look for previous comments and discussions about this. I will included these because some things i borrowed from there. MOCKUP AND WISHES: ability to create 1 material / classes that you can set to use different settings for different scale. When you create a viewport (1:10) on a sheet layer that's different then the scale on your design layer (1:50) it automatically uses the properties of 1:10 instead of 1:50 This option could work as class overrides do now, but more automated. For every material you can set Lambda values so you don't have to do that in your wall style. The wall styles gets the options to use the values from your class or material or just use a different value. This should work like the attributes palette works: it can be set by classes, but it doesn't have too. Ability to use hatches and tiles in surface hatches. (I'm never been able to create in a simple way a hatch as I can with tiles) I don't like how hatches work together with textures. I think this should be 2 separate things that can work together but don't have to. It should not be part or your renderworks texture but something you can set separate. Beside that I think its confusing that you have a scale for the hatch in your recourse browser, as well in the renderworks edit texture. At the moment if you change the scale of your resource it changes in the renderworks texure as well. In someway this is logic but it worked unexpected for me. You should be able to change in % the scale of your hatch in the class/material without editing the resource in the resource browser. For a section and a surface we should be able to set different hatches without overrides, so lets split that up in different options. I wanna set the pen, fill, hatch, opacity, scale, thickness separately for: sections plans elevations
