Logo: VectorworksVectorworks released its 2017 product line, which includes Vectorworks Architect, Landmark, Spotlight, Designer and Fundamentals. The English version is now available with 10 additional language releases planned.

“Vectorworks software is unique compared to other competing products because of our company’s dedication to pushing the programming of the products to maintain flexibility while offering state-of-the art technology,” said Vectorworks CEO Biplab Sarkar. “Our continued commitment to reengineering parts of the code base enables Vectorworks products to constantly evolve with the demands of designers resulting in improved software performance, reliability and functionality.”

The Vectorworks 2017 line features more than 100 updates.

The new Resource Manager enables designers to create, find, edit and apply desired resources to their projects. Offering direct browsing of resources from multiple content locations, the new feature also includes all Vectorworks Service Select libraries for subscription users. Designers can now attach metadata tags and access resources directly with Vectorworks’ parametric tools.

New irrigation tools allow designers to create zones of similar watering needs with the new Hydrozone tool and then use built-in worksheets to analyze for water efficiency.

Professionals can easily share designs with clients and collaborators using Vectorworks software’s web view and virtual reality features. The feature generates a link that allows anyone, anywhere, to view and experience models in 3D on any device without any additional hardware. Additionally, project sharing enhancements allows designers to save project files in Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive and Box.

A unified symbol library, the addition of fixture modes, enhanced Vision Data Export Mapping and a new Send to Vision command are also available.

Lastly, Cloud Services is open for everyone.

The English-language version of Vectorworks 2017 software is available to Vectorworks Service Select customers by download. Shipping of the English-language version to all other customers begins Sept. 19.
