3D Modelling Enhancements
Audio Tool Improvements
The updates to Vectorworks’ 3D modeling can’t be beat. Improvements to the Push/Pull tool now support additional drawing tools like the Line tool, which creates a streamlined method to split the face of a solid and manipulate the geometry.
Other modelling enhancements include simplification of editing solids created with fillet, chamfer, shell solid, and more. Rather than navigating through layers of history, you can simply highlight a face or edge for direct editing and speed through your 3D modeling process.
Vectorworks 2021 brings you quality and performance improvements that open files up to five times faster. You’ll find the responsiveness you need for all levels of detail in your projects.
Additional information caching is engineered to unlock the full potential of your hardware by making more operations multi-threaded and eliminating redundant operations to shorten your wait times and enhance your experience in the 3D environment.
The first is the new Quick Search functionality, which means you can quickly find and activate any tool or menu command simply by typing what you need. Moreover, Vectorworks will make suggestions based on your search and most-used tools.
Next up is the Smart Options Display, which allows you to change tools, modes, and views without moving your mouse from the drawing area or without memorising keyboard shortcuts.
With 2021, you can transfer data between Excel and Vectorworks worksheets with extraordinarily high accuracy, so formatting and formulas are preserved. This means you can import Excel spreadsheet data such as cost schedules, and survey data.
Vectorworks have also integrated Excel export into our Publish feature to publish multiple reports to Excel with a push of a button. Imagine being able to import native Excel data into Vectorworks, modify the data in Vectorworks, and export it back to Excel while preserving the formula and formatting.
The new IFC-compatible 3D Grid Line tool lets you create a structural grid that is customisable and streamlines the drawing creation process by letting you draw your grid in plan and having it and any future changes automatically appear in all views.
2021 has given a boost to drawing markers in Vectorworks 2021, creating a documentation workflow that is sure to exceed your expectations. Section markers, interior elevation markers, reference markers, detail callouts, and drawing labels are now consolidated into tools that are completely customizable.
The Speaker and Speaker Array tools now work with Vectorworks Symbols, giving you access to a wide range of content and the ability to create a more realistic looking model. For convenience, the active speaker configuration can be selected from the tool mode bar, making quick work of your audio layouts and easier management of your symbol library.
