Empowering you to design without limits.
Building Information Modeling
BIM modeling software isn’t exactly known for promoting creative expression. But Vectorworks is different. Freely sketch, model, and document design ideas with precision drafting capabilities and the most flexible 3D modeling engine available, powered by SIEMENS Parasolid. So you’re not limited by presets and strict parameters — you have the flexibility needed to design anything you can imagine.
In BIM Modeling, getting the most information out of the model is essential for design optimization. Vectorworks makes it easy to quantify and analyze the information as early as the schematic design phase:
- Quantify and analyze information
- Run “what if” scenarios and automate schedules
- Calculate costs
- Analyze energy efficiency
Collaboration and File Sharing
Vectorworks allows you to easily collaborate and share files with colleagues, consultants, and clients. The 3D modeling software offers the most default import/export capabilities available, as well as support for openBIM and IFC, and direct links with:
Technology in architectural modeling is advancing rapidly and Vectorworks makes new technologies accessible such as:
- Point cloud
- Cloud services
