With Vectorworks Architect, your firm will benefit from best-in-industry building information modeling tools. With the software’s design-oriented BIM capabilities, you will streamline costs, refine construction details, and increase your energy efficiency – all without altering your preferred process. Flexible parametric objects help you create a virtual prototype of your designs, with as much or little detail as needed. Edit and analyze your model while simultaneously generating interactive schedules.
Capture your visions in 3D and design without limitations withVectorworks Architect. Our first-in-industry, cross-platform graphical scripting capabilities offer new ways to explore form and function, while our advanced suite of Parasolid-based solids and NURBS-surface tools provides you with the ability to create any shape and easily transform geometry.
In addition, Vectorworks offers you the capability to model complex forms with our subdivision surface modeling built on Pixar’s OpenSubdiv library. With our intuitive interface, you will design in any 2D or 3D view using modes in modeling tools that react intelligently to faces of objects as you move your cursor.
Vectorworks software’s extensive suite of drawing and editing tools help you to produce beautiful drawings and high-quality, professional documentation with ease, as well as make quick work of any type of project. Define your signature look and meet industry standards with Vectorworks Architect’s precision drafting tools, intelligent objects for building, detailing, MEP, furniture, millwork, machine parts, and annotations, plus thousands of free symbols from leading building product companies.
