The weather outside may be frightful, but this month’s tech roundup is so delightful! Here’s what we have in store for our users:
Sun Effects is a design and production company located in Helsinki, Finland that has been in operation for 20 years, mainly working on projects in Europe and Asia. With a specialization in light art and designing scenography for other forms of living art, the firm’s range of expertise includes architectural light art, light art festivals, living art festivals, large scale events, projection mapping, theater, touring, outdoor lighting, exhibitions, museum and installation works, and corporate shows. One project in particular has grown to become a standing partner and an annual Vectorworks design tradition for Sun Effects — an event called Slush.
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.
Topics: Markus Graf, Project Sharing, ComputerWorks, Marionette, Jan Philipp Wotschke, Constant Nieuwenhuys, Networked Design, Hans Sachs, Pascal Volz, Marius Hagen, Michael Niemann, Maximilian Pytlik, Philipp Hengstenberg, Shared Towers, Detmold, Nico Günnewich, Kea Stockbrügger
Good news! Vectorworks 2017 Service Pack 5 is available and, with this update, the software is now compatible with macOS 10.13 High Sierra.

#Vectorworks2017 will be released in the coming months. But before you get too excited about launching into our new software, take a minute to refresh your skills with some of the big features released in Vectorworks 2016 with these tutorial playlists.
Working as a team is often an integral part of the design experience, but it doesn't have to be painful. With the new Project Sharing feature (which is part of Vectorworks 2016, by the way), you can work concurrently on the same file with as many people as you want without worrying about accidentally saving over someone else’s work. See? Painless! Although, we can’t do anything about that one teammate who isn’t pulling their weight. Sorry.
