"The world of design is changing. BIM has a continuously growing influence on the AEC Industry, cloud technology is adding freedom and convenience to the design process and the competitive economy is increasing the need to create stunning presentations to win business," commented Sean Flaherty, CEO of Nemetschek Vectorworks.
"Whether you're an architect, a landscape professional or an entertainment designer, we know your process as a designer is evolving. With Vectorworks 2013, you'll discover new tools and forms of collaboration to support your design practice, streamline your workflows and improve your efficiency."
The Vectorworks 2013 product line contains more than 80 improvements, including new commands and tools. Performance in many areas of the program has also been improved, and examples of this include wall network manipulation, hidden line rendering, changes to Vectorworks Spotlight lighting devices and 2D navigation of Vectorworks scenes.
"Feedback from our users is one of the most important resources we have to identify opportunities for improvement, and this release of Vectorworks software reflects the requests we've received from designers who use the program every day," said Dr. Biplab Sarkar, Chief Technology Officer of Nemetschek Vectorworks. "We've improved our 3D modeling capabilities, added new file export options for greater interoperability and enhanced the performance of several key functions."
The English-language version of Vectorworks 2013 software will be available for download later this week.
