3D Modeling with Vectorworks
Simplify Your Workflows
Efficiency and productivity are critical, and you need the right tools to help you achieve your goals, on time and on budget. Enhancements in
Vectorworks Fundamentals 2020 help you seamlessly collaborate with others and streamline the creation of presentation drawings and construction documents,
letting you work faster and be more productive than ever before.
Customize Your Drawings With 2D Components For Hybrid Objects
You've made the move to working in 3D.
Now, optimize that effort by efficiently creating 2D drawings from your 3D and BIM models.
With the new 2D components for hybrid objects capability, we're putting you in complete control of
the detail level your symbols and plug-in objects display.
Simply right-click to edit the detail and display of any 2D/3D hybrid object so it draws exactly as you
want in plan, elevation, and section views.
Easily Create Concept Layouts With Image Effects
Now you can accomplish mainstream image editing right inside of Vectorworks.
You don't need to export your designs to other editing applications such as Photoshop or Illustrator.
The new viewport image effects work with viewports and imported images, which lets you prepare
your presentation boards in the same software you used to create your designs.
This command allows you to convert imported image files into snappable vector lines.
Enhance Your Modeling Process
Vectorworks Fundamentals 2020 gives you more opportunities than ever before to optimize your modeling process. No matter your project type or size,
Vectorworks provides you with intuitive and robust modeling functionality to help you save time and deliver exceptional results.
Create Remarkable Presentations With New Clip Cube Options
You asked for it, and now you can use the clip cube on sheet layer viewports. And, unlike other applications that have limitations on
the visualization of clip cubes, Vectorworks enables you to use clip cubes in any rendered view or style, giving you the efficiency and
capability you need to create remarkable sections, elevations, and presentation drawings.
Speed Up Your Modeling Process With Subdivision Iterations
We've continued to refine the ease of use of our subdivision feature, built on Pixar's OpenSubdiv library. A new setting in the Edit
Subdivision tool gives you the ability to quickly see how subdivisions will look with one to five subdivision iterations being performed, making
it possible to go from generic form to your desired result much faster.
Enjoy Exceptional Quality
We pride ourselves on listening to customers like you. We know you love the innovative technology we've delivered in the past, and we strive to
provide the top-notch quality you expect across all Vectorworks products. With Vectorworks Fundamentals 2020, we've listened to your feedback, and we've
doubled down on many under-the-hood improvements that you're sure to notice when you experience the latest version for the first time.
Multiple-Core Support For The Vectorworks Graphics Module
The Vectorworks Graphics Module has been enhanced to use intelligent ondemand object tessellation for loading only geometric objects
that need to be shown. This enhancement significantly speeds file and view loading in Vectorworks files of all sizes.
Improve Collaboration With Better Dwg Imports And Exports
When you collaborate with others, you expect the information you share is accurate and easy to manage. With enhancements to the layer
and class mapping for DWG imports, you'll enjoy a quick import process that doesn't require manual effort to rename and organize the DWG file
information. A new purge option lets you delete empty layers and unused objects for a cleaner import. And, new options give you more control
exporting images, fills, and tiles resulting in higher-quality DWG exports from Vectorworks.
Work Faster With The Vectorworks Graphics Module On Sheet Layers
The Vectorworks Graphics Module is an exceptional screen-drawing technology that makes it possible for you to enjoy smooth, fast, and
reliable generations of drawing and model views while you're using Vectorworks. With this latest release, your project's sheet layers now
from optimized, multi-threaded technology for use with advanced GPUs. As a result, there's no performance difference between panning and zooming
in a sheet layer compared to a design layer.
Improve Navigation With Layer And Class Filtering
Searching through long lists to find the layer and class you're looking for is a huge pain. In Vectorworks Fundamentals 2020 you can instantly find what
you're looking for by typing in a keyword search or using filters to display classes and layers based upon specific properties. Being able to
work with filtered lists, and instantly search to find classes or layers, will significantly improve your productivity.
Easily Handle Changes With Improved Chain Dimensions
Take advantage of new capabilities with Vectorworks dimensions that enable you to simultaneously add multiple dimensions in a chain
dimension and quickly split a chain dimension in two, so you can more efficiently handle changes with your design dimensions.
Take Control With Improved Flyover Sensitivity
With Vectorworks Fundamentals 2020, you now have easy access to settings for controlling the Flyover tool sensitivity, so you can stay in complete control of
your 3D flyover.
