The Service Pack 2 update for Vectorworks 2017 was just released, and we’re beaming about the enhanced collaboration workflows it enables. The update includes a variety of general improvements, plus increased interoperability capabilities with Bluebeam Revu software, a PDF creation, editing, and markup software from Bluebeam, Inc., a leading developer of technology solutions for the architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) industries. This improved functionality will appear across the 2017 product line, including Vectorworks® Architect, Landmark, Spotlight, and Designer.
Service Pack 2,
We’re always pushing the boundaries of what design software can accomplish here at Vectorworks, but just like anyone else, we run the risk of getting caught up in our day-to-day responsibilities and losing sight of new possibilities. That’s why we have Innovation Weeks: times where we set aside our normal tasks to focus on new ideas and pursue unexpected solutions. In doing so, we’ve been able to bring you new tools like our integrated graphical scripting feature, Marionette, which started out as an idea pitched during an Innovation Week.

There's never a dull moment here at Vectorworks. Dr. Biplab Sarkar, a Vectorworks employee for more than 16 years who has driven the development of our software as chief technology officer (CTO) for eight of those years, has been appointed to chief executive officer (CEO). In other company promotion news, Darick DeHart is now vice president of product management and Steve Johnson is now vice president of product development. The three executives will work closely together in their new roles to pursue future technology advancements for the Vectorworks software lines.

We may be just two months into the year, but Vectorworks has been no stranger to the media as a company, brand, or software. We started 2016 off on a high note in January with some terrific hits:

If the audible gasps from attendees at our Vectorworks Design Summit are any indication, the potential for injecting point cloud data into the design process is awe-inspiring. In fact, when our CTO Dr. Biplab Sarkar delivered his keynote address and revealed how we plan to support the technology in our 2016 release this fall, the enthusiasm was infectious.
