Are you considering making the move to Vectorworks but haven’t made the jump? Before looking any further, first consider the ways Vectorworks compares with your current software. If you’re using AutoCAD, we’ve made it easy for you with the first installment of this three-part series, Why CAD Managers Should Make the Move to Vectorworks.
The upcoming feature we are showcasing today is likely to be a crowd pleaser. In Vectorworks 2019, we are introducing clip cube support for viewports and Renderworks modes in design layers and sheet layers.
Alex Rose understands the value of saving time in the entertainment industry. As a project manager at AV Matters in Orlando, Florida, he oversees the production and technical details of a wide range of events, including corporate conferences, galas, and social and charity events. Although the process of producing an event from start to finish can be stressful due to tight deadlines, it’s become much easier for Rose, as the firm recently made the switch from AutoCAD to Vectorworks Spotlight to help with the design and execution of each event.
When it comes to Vectorworks software, we always strive for quality, but for the 2018 latest release, we also wanted to focus on connection.
This year’s launch came with several new and superior features, but at Vectorworks we are always looking to improve. Our staff worked hard to address issues presented to us by you, the users, and made the necessary changes in the Vectorworks 2018 Service Pack 1, available now for download. These downloads will update all English-language Vectorworks 2018 products (Designer, Architect, Landmark, Spotlight, and Fundamentals) to version SP1.
