This week’s #TeaserTuesday is all about empowering users to make informed design decisions.

With live data visualization, you can use data to define graphic attributes say, for example, you want to classify walls, walkways, and doors according to fire code standards. You can set the walls’ colors, so you have a visual reminder of what’s appended to the wall: restrictions, criteria, parameters, etc.

Data visualization first appeared in Vectorworks 2017, but back then it was confined to viewports. 2020 brings data to the forefront: right in the design layer where you make your design decisions. It’s a live working environment where you can accurately discern the impact of your data an addition that goes a long way in designing intelligently.
“Data is information. Information is knowledge. And we know that knowledge is power,” explained Hugues Tsafak, director of product development.
This feature is a useful new way to make design changes and see their impact immediately creating an all-together proactive design environment.
