We are ‘BIM’ing with pride to announce that the free BIMobject App is now integrated into Vectorworks 2017 software. The App manages and downloads native Vectorworks content and easily converts DWG, SKP, and 3DS content into information-rich Vectorworks content. This is done entirely in the background and delivers the same user experience no matter the source data format. Additionally, the app includes over 4,600 objects from more than 260 brands, an unprecedented amount of content for a newly-introduced App. In turn, the manufacturers who support BIMobject with these formats gain immediate access to the Vectorworks user base of up to 650,000 users.
If you weren’t among the more than 600 attendees who joined us in Chicago for the 2016 Vectorworks Design Summit, you might feel a little left out.

BIMobject, the free repository of manufacturer-specific BIM objects, is now home to Vectorworks symbols, allowing you to develop, communicate, analyze, and add value to your design process. This development arose out of a partnership between Vectorworks and BIMobject, one of Europe’s largest and fastest-growing digital content management systems, after the two companies joined forces in an effort to better meet the needs of the AEC industry.
Clients and contractors love detailed designs because they express a clear, creative vision and include accurate material and product specifications within the building model. Now, thanks to our partnership with BIMobject® announced just today, designers will soon be able to fill their Vectorworks models with manufacturer-approved BIM content that will assist everybody involved in building design, construction, and operation processes.
We are pleased to announce that Vectorworks Architect software has successfully passed IFC Coordination View 2.0 Import certification from buildingSMART International. With this announcement, Nemetschek Vectorworks joins an elite group of architectural software developers to achieve both IFC Coordination View 2.0 Import and Export certification.
The Specifiers' Properties information exchange (SPie) is a volunteer research effort aimed at standardizing (using open-BIM standards) and improving the distribution of construction product data. Our very own Robert Anderson participated in the first-round effort as "the geometry guy" which gave him the chance to show off Vectorworks' excellent general-purpose geometry tools and how they could be used to create IFC-based product data.
