For Landscape Architects & Designers
With the release of Vectorworks 2024 Update 3, you can look forward to including even more detail, data, and imagery in your designs, documents, and presentations in Vectorworks Landmark.
The new PlantMaster plugin grants those with an active PlantMaster subscription the ability to use their vast library for detailed plant reports and visually stunning representations.
The plugin from the Vectorworks Partner Network member can be easily installed by accessing the “Install Partner Products” palette inside Vectorworks.
Additionally, the optimized DWG export for Landscape Area objects helps you exchange DWG files while ensuring accuracy and precision.
To cater to your distinct needs as an architect, Vectorworks 2024 Update 3 includes better support of corner windows with defined wall closures for more accurate BIM models.
The Callout tool has also been enhanced to work with rotated plans. It allows you to annotate plan drawings intuitively and accurately.
For Lighting & Live Event Designers
Significant developments to the My Virtual Rig (MVR) import and export function deliver better support for Project Sharing, Gobo images, Seating Sections, and other data such as shutter information, color name, and fixture position, so you can easily exchange higher-quality files. The General Device Type Format (GDTF) import function has also undergone advancements, allowing easier access to fixtures and their data.
With Vectorworks 2024 Update 3, rigging experts using Braceworks can expect improvements in generating reports. Braceworks reports are now even more consistent and readable with a higher visual quality.
You’ll also find a performance boost when working with truss objects. Inserting truss objects in files with multiple light objects and other complex geometry is faster and provides a much smoother modeling experience.
For All Designers
Regardless of your design discipline, Vectorworks 2024 Update 3 offers support for dimension-type data fields in the Title Block Border. This improvement gives you greater flexibility in reporting project information in the title block. Plus, adding import/export support for Revit 2024 files improves the file exchange process with collaborators using the most current version of Revit.
