Convert to previous - discontinued versions of VWX


Hi all


I am currently using vwx  2016 and all is fine there.


I run a theatre venue and do all my plans native to this format. I have recently upgraded from 2012.


A client coming in is still on vectorworks 2010 and has requested a copy for this format. I have recently upgraded the plans and do not have a working 2010 version that is accurate.


Is there a way to achieve this file version to help him out?


Many thanks

You would have to export to an older version that 2016 can export to, then export further from that older version to 2010. However, you will most likely experience a loss of geometry or data, which is why we no longer export so far back. The older versions don't know how to handle the new types of objects and geometry that now exist, and prior to 2011 we even used a completely different solids modeling engine.

Hi JIm


Thanks for the answer.


That is what I figured. I have an old license of 2012 and this allowed me to jump the file down to 2010. He is not looking for all the bells and whistles etc.


The process worked and I have passed on a v2010 version.



Thanks for the pointer.
