Industry Leading 3D

See your visions come to life in 3D. An advanced suite of Parasolid-based solids and NURBS surface tools lets you create any shape and easily explore geometry. The intuitive interface lets you design from any 3D view using modes in modeling tools that automatically infer working planes as you move your cursor. More accurate object information and better snapping make drawing in 3D easy. Anything you can imagine is possible to express in Vectorworks Designer.

Seamless Interoperability

Exchange NURBS models with Rhino or concept models from Sketchup®. Support of both import and export of OBJ, STL, 3DS, and SKP file formats lets you explore the full range of design options by incorporating information from multiple sources. Using IFC, an industry-standard file format, communicate effectively with your consultants and collaborators who may be using Revit® or other BIM software—or use your model for clash detection and model checking. Vectorworks Designer supports IFC, gbXML, DWG/DXF, Revit, PDF, and more for document and model exchange.

Flexible Workflows & Project Sharing

Enable multiple designers to work concurrently on the same Vectorworks Designer file with our Project Sharing feature. Whether you’re a sole practitioner collaborating with other professionals or a large firm dividing work among different members of the team, Project Sharing provides a flexible way to manage productive workflows for even the most complicated project. Create, model, present, and develop your designs easily and precisely with just one application.

Superior 2D Documentation

Designer offers precision drafting tools, intelligent objects for building, detailing, MEP, furniture, millwork, machine parts, and annotations, plus thousands of free symbols from leading building product companies. Batch print drawing sets or export them as multipage PDFs at full or reduced sized. Plus, use our exclusive sketch rendering technology to change hard-lined drawings into soft, hand-sketched illustrations, blurring the line between clear, accurate technical documentation and compelling presentations.

Superior SIM Tools

Vectorworks Designer provides an efficient way to introduce Site Information Modeling (SIM) capabilities into your workflow. The program’s tools will help you analyze your design for area, volume, slope, cut/fill, and other data such as water flow and sun/shade. Use the property line tool to define a site’s boundaries and setbacks. Scan in planting plans and trace over them with ease, or simply enter your field measurements.

Unmatched Experiences

Vectorworks Designer software gives designers in the entertainment industry an edge to advance their ideas from concept through completion. Our users include entertainment design professionals, such as lighting and scenic designers for theatre, film, television, exhibits and events, as well as students starting out in their careers in these disciplines. The extensive libraries of signature brand lighting are complemented by best-in-class documentation tools, so you can quickly create light plots, automate paperwork, and visualize your design in rendered 3D views.

Integrated Rendering

All Vectorworks software packages include Renderworks, the best-in-industry rendering feature set built on the award-winning Cinema 4D render engine. Renderworks provides the tools necessary to visualize your work throughout the design process while producing clear and accurate illustrations with stunning quality.
