Site Planning Tools for VW Architect

Recommended Posts

I'm just realizing that my VW Architect doesn't contain some of the basic Site Planning Tools I would expect to find, even for primarily Architectural uses. Is there really no Landscape Area Tool for me to use? Does Vectorworks offer any way for Architects to designate general Site Plan areas (such as pervious and impervious surfaces) using a BIM feature? We need this too.

You need to hire a Landscape Architect who is using Landmark or Designer!


I don't have an answer to your question.


Just wanted to put that out there! :-)

In all seriousness, if I were to hire a landscape architect who is using Landmark, I would think that would be all the more reason to have some of these tools available with which to coordinate. As an Architect, it's important to get in the ballpark with these elements in order to move forward with early design drawings.

@mgries You are absolutely correct this would be helpful. For this reason and some others I upgraded from Landmark to Designer to have full access to all the Architecture Tools as I often have to model my client's homes when doing a design.
