VECTORWORKS 2022 ARCHITECT
THE ULTIMATE SOFTWARE FROM SKETCH TO BIM
SIMPLIFY YOUR PROCESS
Built to showcase your skills and creativity, Vectorworks Architect offers all the design, rendering, documentation and collaboration tools you need—from 2D graphics to 3D modeling to fully integrated BIM. Architect is the comprehensive, powerful solution that combines absolute creative expression with maximum efficiency.
Unlike other software, Vectorworks has the flexibility to support your entire project from beginning to end, or anywhere in the process — from conceptual design, to fully coordinated BIM models, to construction documents. It’s the versatile solution you need to pull everything together and increase your efficiency.
BIM SOFTWARE FOR EVERY DESIGN PHASE
Phase 1: Pre-design
With more support for common file formats than any other BIM solution, Vectorworks Architect can pull together all necessary information to start your project, providing everything you need for conceptual design, site planning, and analysis all in one interface. Quickly confirm design intent while transitioning from massing models to concept models.
Phase 2: Schematic Design
Foster your creative vision with intuitive drawing tools supported by a flexible and easy-to-use modeling engine that’s perfect for space planning and programming. Easily transition from massing models to a BIM model, visualize concepts with integrated 3D rendering, and share high-quality graphics with your entire team through Vectorworks Cloud Services.
Phase 3: Design Development
As project detail increases, Vectorworks Architect facilitates smooth consultant coordination and aids cost estimation — all while refining design decisions. Intelligent information modeling keeps data exactly where you need it and ensures painless data reporting.
IMAGINE IT. DESIGN IT. DOCUMENT IT.
BIM software isn’t exactly known for promoting creative expression. But Vectorworks is different. We allow you to freely sketch, model, and document your 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 you need to design anything you can imagine.
MAXIMIZE THE I IN BIM
Getting the most out of the “I” in Building Information Modeling is essential for optimizing your designs. Vectorworks makes it easy to quantify and analyze information as early as the schematic design phase so you can make smart decisions. Run “what if” scenarios and automate schedules, calculate costs, analyze energy efficiency to maximize each design element.
WORK WITH ANYONE
Vectorworks allows you to easily collaborate and share files with colleagues, consultants, and clients. We offer the most default import/export capabilities available, as well as support for openBIM and IFC, and direct links with Revit®, SketchUp®, Rhino®, Photoshop®, and Cinema4D.
