Vectorworks 2011 ?Release note

Recommended Posts

Aloha, I noticed in the announcement about VW's partnership with Maxon Computer Lisa Lance wrote, "Beginning with the next release of Vectorworks? software, which will be available on Sept. 14, 2010, ..."

Wondering if anyone seen a list of improvement, features etc. somewhere?

Thanks

Can we PLEASE have a timely release of the demo disks in the UK this year! I need to review the new version and persuade the partners that the upgrade is worthwhile. With a 12 month cycle I don't want to wait 6 weeks for the disk, take 2 weeks to review it, wait 2 weeks for the partners to meet...you get the idea.

It took so long for the demo disk of 2010 to arrive we thought we'd wait for this year's release!

The video says..."anything you can do in 2D, you can do in 3D..." If that applies to object constraints.....! (I hope, but my breath is not being held!!)

I don't find that very exciting to be honest. I can't place my finger on why, but it doesn't look as good as SolidWorks or SpaceClaim.

Besides, just before the circles are isolated, the screen goes all blochy because of his navigation and I find that messy.

Let's see what else vw2011 has to offer.

Just my 2c

I found interesting the way 2011 new features are promoted :)

Demonstrated push/pull isn't as flexible as in SU or Spaceclaim but it's small step in the right direction ..

I'll be the stick in the mud then. I don't care much for the marketing technique. I'd rather the software did the talking. Perhaps a few marketing personnel could be dropped so they can take on another interface designer?

Perhaps ...

In fact marketing technique has very little or zero impact on my decisions. It's just only amusing (sometimes);)

It's just irritating.....just put out a couple of 'normal' YouTube screen-casts instead of these childish fake home videos.......... even a written list of improvements/additions beforehand would be more professional!

Looks like the interface hasn't seen any change at all from what I can see...which will please many on these boards.

I'd rather they were more radical and introduced a dynamic workspace that adapted to the operations you were performing. We're gonna be scrolling through that unwieldy Object Info palette for a few more years yet...

Just makes me wonder if this ad campaign was actually planned, or just something thrown up quickly due to the Autocad Mac announcement.

Looks like a good step forward. I would assume you could select all the circles and push/pull them together.

I would love to see some bigger changes to the UI. Things that keep your focus in the drawing/3D model. As an example, how about the mode bar options for a tool showing up below the heads up display, allowing you to cycle through them with a single key..... sorta like I mocked up below for the polyline tool....

I am looking forward to taking VW 2011 for a spin!
