New in This Version
- Graphical scripting will play a significant role in the workflows of the future. This functionality, when built into an intelligent
information modeling application, presents designers with unlimited opportunities to generate, define, build, and explore form and function throughout
the design process. Integrated directly into Vectorworks Landmark 2018, Marionette is the first and only cross-platform graphical scripting tool for the AEC, entertainment,
and landscape design industries. Marionette is a Python-based scripting tool that operates within the Vectorworks platform; it delivers a robust and scalable
way to program well beyond the confines of traditional design software. When you use Marionette, you can create visual scripts that take advantage of
the superior 2D interface and robust 3D modeling capabilities that Vectorworks software offers, ushering in a new world of discovery that enhances your
workflows and integrates seamlessly into your BIM environments.
- Point Cloud Support
- Field surveys and other manual methods used to capture existing spaces can now be replaced by Point Cloud Support. Using your preferred 3D
scanning device, you can capture a physical location and import a 3D point cloud into Vectorworks software using PTS, E57, LAS, and XYZ file formats.
Capture a perfect, full- color representation of any location and manipulate and measure it.
- Horizontal Sections from the Clip Cube
- Explore your design floor by floor, space by space, and section by section with horizontal sections from the clip cube. Use this command
to isolate horizontal segments of your models to create conceptual, diagrammatic views, giving clients a deeper understanding of your design
throughout the development process.
- Roof Components and Styles
- Ensure accuracy in the documentation of your sections and elevations with the new ability to define more realistic roof components that
will interact with your wall components. Roof faces and roof objects now have the same component representation as walls and slabs, further extending
the power of BIM in your designs.
- Door and Window Improvements
- In Vectorworks Landmark 2018, improved window and door functions give you more options to create compelling designs. From three- and four-panel sliding windows,
to span wall options for corner windows, to control over door hardware positioning, designers will be able to add more depth (and more data) to their
projects than ever before.
- 3D Modifiers for Slabs
- Geometric flexibility now extends to slabs, allowing you to shape their surfaces to match design and construction requirements.
- Hardscape Improvements
- The enhanced Hardscape object now includes options to accomplish radial paving patterns and paving patterns based on curvilinear paths,
enabling site designers to be more creative in laying out pavements and walkways. You can also convey your signature style with sloping pavement
- Exacting Site Modeling
- Improved Slope Modifiers - Take your site designs to new heights with improved slope modifiers, tool modes, and definitions. Accurately
manage multiple sloping surfaces, choose how you prefer to display your slope labels, and more, to generate the most exacting site designs with less
- Site Model Flow Arrows Enhancements - Proposing changes to a site's terrain represents changes in the flow of rainwater. With advancements
in the graphic settings of the site model, you can use color and other line type changes to quickly recognize the difference in water flow direction
from existing to proposed to better plan how you manage water on a site.
- Improved Site Modifier Capabilities
- Collect Modifiers from Custom Sets of Design Layers - Gain greater site modeling efficiency with enhanced file organization to
collect modifiers from custom sets of design layers, as well as streamlined controls over fine grading.
- Save settings for site model dialog boxes - Save changes to your site model settings for future use, maintaining the consistency of
terrain studies from project to project, without having to memorize the settings for each scenario.
- Project Sharing
- Vectorworks Landmark 2018 gives you more resources than ever to streamline and optimize your workflow. With project sharing capabilities, access to reliable
cloud-based storage solutions, improved communication and visualization tools, and the industry-leading development team that is always working to
make your design software experience better, you'll design smarter than ever before.
