BIM and virtual reality were the center of attention recently at Swissbau, Switzerland’s biggest building tradeshow. This year’s event included lectures, exhibits, and an Innovation Lab focused on new opportunities through digital transformation, with demonstrations related to the future of design. Our distributor ComputerWorks played an integral role in this interactive and educational show.

In the 2017 summer semester, students of the Detmold School of Architecture and Interior Architecture developed an exciting project involving sunscreen possibilities for a building façade. The result is five designs created with Marionette, the algorithmic modeling tool natively available in Vectorworks.

This May, “M” is for Marionette, our integrated graphical scripting tool, as we’ve just launched the Marionette Resources section on our Community Board, where you can easily upload, describe, reuse, and share inspiring algorithmic designs with the world.

While it might feel like we just launched Vectorworks 2017, we’ve been hard at work preparing for the release of our Vectorworks 2018 product line. As a part of these efforts, we’re pulling back the curtain on one development to come in our next release later this year: Braceworks.

While many of us were gearing up for the New Year, Germany and Austria experienced a tour like no other – if design is your thing, that is. Our Vectorworks distributor, ComputerWorks GmbH, tackled 20 cities with its "Inside Vectorworks 2016" tour, attracting nearly 1,500 attendees and seizing every chance to share our latest software release through group demos, one-on-one sessions, and workshops that touched upon everything from collaborative workflows and 3D planning in landscape architecture to Spotlight training by one of the program's biggest worldwide users PRG, as well as interesting case studies, and quick tips for architectural design success.

Nemetschek Vectorworks' BIM Camp events took the U.S. by storm beginning in 2012, providing attendees with the knowledge to effectively transition to a Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow. Since then, BIM Camps have traveled to Japan, Switzerland, and the Benelux region.

On May 22, architects in Switzerland will have the opportunity to attend BIM im Klartext at the Architekturforum Zürich. "BIM im Klartext" simply means "BIM in plain language," and attendees of this event will learn what BIM (Building Information Modeling) is, what the benefits of BIM are, and how BIM is used in Switzerland and other European countries.
