Next Generation Technology
With Vectorworks 2022, key areas of core technology and interface development make Vectorworks products faster and more intuitive, while providing the stability and precision required for maximum efficiency. Vectorworks is the first major BIM application to run natively on Apple’s silicon processors.
Vectorworks 2022 tests showed speed increases of two to four times. Further improvements in this area include the full use of Metal on Mac and DirectX on Windows in the Vectorworks graphics module, Maxon’s Redshift render mode, and a new direct link to Twinmotion. In addition, an overhaul of the attribute and capture palettes and a new texture mapping by face support an intuitive process for creating and viewing designs.
3D and BIM workflows
Vectorworks continues to provide design-driven tools for BIM workflows that work for all designers. Improvements to the direct editing of the stair tool help simplify the process of designing complex objects. Updates to the Spreadsheet Database and Data Manager provide a consistent interface, better visual cues, a new search mode and an improved formula bar with a new set of functions to make it easier to generate reports, schedules and targeted material take-offs.
With a focus on reengineering and modernizing key architectural objects such as wall components and data reports to support the creation of accurate BIM models, Vectorworks 2022 offers enhancements to your workflow for more precision. , control and precision for both the visual model and the corresponding data.
Vectorworks is proud to be a design hub and continues to invest in optimizing popular file formats, supporting value-added partner products, and ensuring project teams and collaboration BIM remain unmatched.
Version 2022 includes enhancements to importing DWG files to support Civil 3D, DWG, and GIS georeferencing. In addition, IFC import / export capabilities are enhanced for quantitative surveys and improved GIS workflows.
Landscape and GIS
As the BIM platform of choice for landscape architecture, Vectorworks Landmark 2022 offers more options for precise modeling reflecting actual design considerations. Improvements to the site model make it easier to define and report soil layers. Updates to the factory tool, landscaping objects, and integrations with Esri make it easy to produce landscape BIM models that leverage GIS workflows while meeting the demand for sustainable site creation.
Our commitment to users in the entertainment industry is to invest first and foremost in reengineering for better file performance and to provide highly responsive tools. Version 2022 of Vectorworks Spotlight, Braceworks, ConnectCAD and Vision offers greater consistency between tools and features focused on simplifying processes such as cable and power planning to make your overall workflow efficient. This latest version also offers many usability improvements such as better controls on the camera tool, a position name field for the farm, and context menus for moving data. Improved placement and direct editing of objects in schematic views make day-to-day documentation work in Vectorworks Spotlight faster and more intuitive.
