October's Tech Roundup Includes Release of Vectorworks 2015 Service Pack 1

Posted by Julie McClure on 10/15/14 11:59 AM

It’s time for another tech roundup where we highlight some of our best tech tip videos from our YouTube channel to help designers get the most out of their Vectorworks software, as well as share recent tech news you may have missed.

First, we have released the first Service Pack for the Vectorworks 2015 product line. This Service Pack fixes problems when rendering viewports in OpenGL, opening Mac files that contain special characters such as / or : as part of the file name or file path, and displaying a black screen when creating animations. We also corrected multiple issues with exporting to image files, centering the drawing on internal origin, and using the Publish command, as well as problems running Vectorworks 2015 in Windows XP 64-bit.

This Service Pack is available for all non-localized English language licenses as a downloadable updater. To install the Service Pack, please click here or go to the About Vectorworks 2015 dialog box in the Vectorworks menu (Mac users) or Help menu (Windows users) and select Check for Updates.

Next, we continue to publish great videos on our YouTube channel. For example, here's a video that covers the basics of preparing a 3D model created in or imported into Vectorworks to export to the STL format, the standard 3D file format for 3D printing.

This second video reveals how to best utilize freely available 3D object library resources.
