Its out, Vectorworks 2014 is now released. I have received about 10 emails to this effect in the last few days, plus I have also received Jon Pickups new 2013 3D modelling manual, plus I got the 2013 landmark tutorial manual as well, its all go for Vectorworks.
But first Vectorworks 2014, the new software includes more than 130 improvements that were developed for better modelling, BIM management, interoperability, usability, performance, and quality. The 2014 product line also features new BIM tools for architects, increased site design capabilities for landscape architects and designers, as well as enhancements to lighting devices, documentation, and graphic controls for entertainment designers.
The following list provides a sampling of what design professionals will find inside Vectorworks 2014 software:
- Enhanced 3D Modelling
- Better BIM Tools
- New Site Design Capabilities
- Improved Interoperability
- Usability Improvements
- Robust Rendering
- Increased Compatibility
- Cloud Services and Mobile Solutions
For one of the best write ups about Vectorworks and Nemetschek, try reading this excellent article on the upFront.Ezine site.
As always not all the improvements will be available for all packages, so users of Fundamentals, Architect,Landmark and Designer will need to check to see just what they have.
As soon as I can I will looking some of the feature and see just what we get for our money, but until then this nice little promo video is rather cool, does it sound like Google Glass oe what !.
