Drew Tegg has used Vectorworks to create this detailed drawing of a watch. Note how the textures look so realistic in this “rendered” image.

Yoshinobu Yamakawa works at Polygon Architects in Tokyo, and has created these interesting shapes in Vectorworks. Check out the Gallery for other objects he’s drawn.

A really good design is one that can stand alone because something like that will always look good in a variety of environments. That means making something that’s unique.
– Forest Dickey, Founder and Lead Designer, Varian Designs

If you are drawing products rather than buildings or landscapes, Vectorworks Fundamentals may be all you need.
