Designers in France can now produce accurate energy analysis calculations thanks to a new plug-in for Vectorworks software. Developed by French distributor CESYAM and designed to help users comply with a new thermal regulation, RT-2012, the free plug-in exports Vectorworks-created BIM models to ArchiWIZARD, which is a powerful software suite that lets designers evaluate the impact of their architectural choices on the energy performance of buildings (e.g., heat balance, lighting, solar energy production).
By now, you've probably heard about all the exciting new features in Vectorworks 2011. Today, we're happy to announce that localized versions are available from several of our European distributors. These versions in each country’s native language are now available in Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands.
