The worldwide rollout of Vectorworks 2015 software has hit Japan, with A&A Co., the local Vectorworks distributor, hosting launch events in six major cities across the country to introduce designers to this year’s new features.
“We are showing designers all over Japan how Vectorworks software has evolved to enable them to improve their workflows and bring their ideas to reality,” says Eiichi Kawase, president of A&A Co., Ltd. “The software’s integral focus on inviting users to discover new possibilities really speaks to everyone who experiences the new release.”
“We sensed a strong enthusiasm for the new release, which is great to see because Japan is our largest market and boasts our biggest concentration of large-seat firms—many with hundreds or thousands of licenses each,” says Sean Flaherty, CEO of Nemetschek Vectorworks, who traveled to Japan with colleague and Architect Product Specialist Jeffrey Ouellette, Assoc. AIA, IES, to connect with software users attending the launch events. Flaherty says that designers who came out to test drive the features in Vectorworks 2015 were particularly excited about the Deform tool, the new gradient options, enhancements to the text editing options, and the seamless, visual transition from 2D to 3D views thanks to the Vectorworks Graphics Module.
