We always put our users first, and that’s why this year we’re letting you be the first to see the exciting things to come in Vectorworks 2018 with our Teaser Tuesdays.


What is Teaser Tuesday? Each Tuesday since July 25 and continuing for five weeks, we are posting a sneak peek at an upcoming feature on our Community Board.

If you haven’t joined in on the forum fun yet, here’s a recap of the features we’ve covered so far:

Multiple Drawing Views
Some things — like drawing views — are better together. With the new Enable Multiple Views command, you’ll be able to see multiple views simultaneously and switch between viewports, views, and visibility settings to do what you need.

This feature will also let you easily gauge the impact of a design change across your 3D, section, and elevation views.

Direct Section and Elevation Editing
Say hello to editing models directly in your section viewports. Add openings, align and distribute windows, repositions doors across multiple layers, reshape walls — it’s all possible.


Mirror objects, move them by points and/or align them all while directly editing sections and elevations.

You can even change the 3D views while in the section to see how edits affect model views.

Rendered Panoramas
Gather ‘round. Just revealed this morning, this new capability in the Renderworks feature set allows you to create a 360-degree, interactive view of your rendered model.

You’ll be able to put your clients in the middle of your model, no matter the size, and let them explore.
