Whether your specialty is architecture, landscape, or entertainment design, Vectorworks® Designer software enables you to draft, model, and present in a single, intuitive interface. Enhance your workflow and follow your inspiration. Explore your ideas, and discover new ways to simplify your process with Vectorworks Designer – the ultimate solution for the design professional who needs it all.
INDUSTRY LEADING 3D
See your captured 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. Plus, with graphical scripting tools, subdivivision surface modeling, point cloud support, you can create any shape and easily explore geometry. Our intuitive interface lets you design from any 3D view using modes in modeling tools that automatically infer working planes as you move your cursor, and enjoy the superior quality that allows you to manipulate your model with ease. More accurate object information and better snapping make drawing in 3D easy. Anything you can imagine is possible to express in Vectorworks Designer.
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, making sweeping changes quickly and easily. 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.
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. Scan in planting plans and trace over them with ease. Or, simply enter your field measurements. Use the property line tool to define a site’s boundaries and setbacks. Plus, building tools and site objects easily document existing structures and site conditions. In addition, you can use the program’s drawing, modeling, and 2D and 3D graphics capabilities to create compelling presentations.
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, including 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.
