For version 2012

Question

How about utilizing all the cores of a multiple core CPU.

It would also be great to use the GPU's for the better graphics cards available.

How about way easier ways of drawing or showing trim for doors and windows. Currently, it is way to convoluted of a process.

We should be able to selected what we want for interior and exterior trim for doors and windows.

Other software exists that will do this. Nothing to draw. Just select what style trim you want and it is done. Shows in 3D as well. Can even change in 3D.

You can even create your own. You can import profiles as well.

The idea of computers is to increase speed and efficiency.

How about options on roofs for Hip and full Hip returns instead of having to draw them.

Same goes for crown moulding. Especially for cabinets.

How about being able to pre-define the interiors of a room.

Ex: Select wall coverings (paint, wallpaper) be able to set multiple vertical layers. Lower portion of wall wainscoting, upper portion paint or wall paper.

Crown for ceiling trim. Base, shoe moulding, ceiling color, etc.

Pre-define the interiors of rooms.

Other software exists that will do this.

How about when placing sinks, they auto automatically cut the hole in the countertops.

How about edge profiles for countertops.

Good ideas but wrong thread title, let's get 2011 working properly first before we even start thinking about 2012!

Forget all the LazyBoy stuff, :) but Top Marks for bringing these 3 back to the top of the list.

Unify the "Dodgy Planes into ONE" would be good too!

I do not agree with what you call the LazyBoy stuff.

The idea is to be as efficient as possible.

Why spend the time drawing or creating if you do not have to.

We have pre-defined walls

We have roof options (parameters) to select before we create the roof

We have window and door options

I meant implement it in 2011 instead of coming with a new release too early and a whole new set of bugs and problems.....

I could be wrong, but I think it is to late for that.

VectorWorks releases new updates every year.

We are rapidly approaching the half way point to the new release.

I agree that it is more important to have a stable release that the "sell the sizzle" approach.

But that does not bring revenue in the door.

All one has to do is review the forums and see the issues they are having.

Yes, I am sure some of it is newvbie stuff.

Besides the advances that have been made in VW, they are still behind the curve in utilizing hardware.

Maybe they should go to a 2 year or 2-1/2 year product cycle.

I like to think/feel that VW is more concerned with a great product (quality) than Oh, we have to have a new version every year just to say they did it.

I love VW, but it needs work to get up to some other software that is available.

IMHO
