Auckland, (29 October 2019): The New Zealand edition of Vectorworks 2020 has been released. This newest release brings improved software performance, quality enhancements and new data-driven workflows.
“Data and usability are the cornerstones of this year’s product line enhancements,” said Vectorworks CEO Dr. Biplab Sarkar. “When we looked at the future of the industry and what our customers’ needs were, we kept coming back to data, particularly data-driven insights. Vectorworks 2020 is centered around providing our customers with intuitive ways to use the powerful tools of our products, while also offering more practical ways to incorporate the use of data for an improved and insightful design workflow.”
With this focus on insightful design, Vectorworks 2020 extends the existing Data Visualisation feature to the design layer environment. This lets customers change objects’ attributes using dataparameters to visualise data for error checking, work validation and quality control.
Additionally, customers will experience optimised Open BIM capabilities, improved file performance and other updates that include:
- Increased workflow efficiency with the ability to directly edit fields in a list browser, such as in the Navigation palette or the Organisation Dialog.
- Improved file performance and responsiveness of large and complex models with the updated Vectorworks Graphics Module.
- A new Schematic View workflow to handle the complexity of modeling and documenting rigging workflows in Vectorworks Spotlight.
- Accurate geolocation of a project with the new Geographic Information System (GIS) toolset and integration with Esri’s ArcGIS online services.
