INDUSTRY-LEADING 3D SOLUTIONS

The first-in-industry, cross-platform graphical scripting capabilities offer new ways to explore form and function, while the advanced suite of Parasolid-based solids and NURBS-surface tools provides you with the ability to create any shape and easily transform geometry.

Vectorworks offers you the capability to model complex forms with subdivision surface modeling built on Pixar’s OpenSubdiv library. Design in any 2D or 3D view using modes in modeling tools that react intelligently to faces of objects as you move your cursor.

SUPERIOR DOCUMENTATION

Design without constraints. With a broader array of drafting and annotation tools than other BIM applications, you will produce stunning presentations and the highest quality documentation while you design. Use your Vectorworks BIM model as the basis to create and refine custom schedules and construction documents directly from your design, supporting changes you make throughout your iterative design process.

MULTIUSER ENVIRONMENT

Collaborate and maximize efficiency. Project Sharing enables architects, interior designers, and others to unify their workflows by allowing the project team to work on the same Vectorworks file concurrently. Streamline your journey
from simple sketch to final product.
