Vectorworks 2023 Promises Time-Saving Benefits for Designers with Enhanced Interoperability and a Focus on Process Automation

The latest Vectorworks 2023 product line, which includes Vectorworks Architect, Vectorworks Landmark, Vectorworks Spotlight, Vectorworks Fundamentals, and new 2023 versions of ConnectCAD, Braceworks, and Vision, has been announced by Vectorworks, Inc., a Nemetschek subsidiary and the world’s leading provider of design and BIM software.  The CAD/BIM software Vectorworks 2023, which will soon be available, has a strong process automation component. A number of upgrades for BIM workflows and improved interoperability will also be introduced to the Windows and Mac OSX applications, owing to the new Revit import capabilities. 

What’s New in Vectorworks 2023? 

Vectorworks 2023 promises product improvements, which put a strong emphasis on process automation and time-saving technologies, and will let you spend more time designing.  The Vectorworks product suite will get new features and improvements in the forthcoming edition. Dr. Biplab Sarkar, CEO of Vectorworks, said the following regarding the release:  “For Vectorworks 2023, we’ve spent our efforts focused on refining our software so that designers don’t feel bogged down by the technology but instead identify efficiencies that let them focus on inventive and creative designs,” the company stated. 

  • Improved Interoperability

Vectorworks 2023 promises to enhance the capabilities to collaborate and coordinate while remaining the unmatched choice for teamwork. Using the software to collaborate with consultants and clients is now more flexible thanks to new import options for Revit files. It will be simpler to create a project within the context of existing information and reference a Revit file directly for a more collaborative workflow thanks to Vectorworks’ new support for the translation of additional Revit object types and improved organization of the imported file data.

By utilizing BIM Collaboration Format (BCF) files, users can benefit from better, quicker, and more accurate BIM collaboration. Now that the BCF Manager is a web palette, it can be kept open to manage and model changes with cloud-based collaboration tools effectively and seamlessly.  Vectorworks 2023’s new features and updates will also enable better, faster, and more accurate collaborative efforts by offering: 

  • Greater versatility thanks to new Revit import options 
  • More Revit object types are being translated, allowing for better organization of imported file data. 
  • A new BIM Collaboration Format (BCF) web palette that can be kept open to manage and model changes with cloud-based tools in real-time. 
  • Better BIM for Architecture

Core architectural elements have been re-engineered and modernized for better intuitiveness through all project phases with the upcoming release of Vectorworks Architect 2023, thereby minimizing the amount of human labor required to prepare and edit regular documentation. The following improvements and changes will make your daily documentation better: 

  • Improved window and door object creation 
  • A new Graphic Legend tool that removes the manual process of creating graphic legends. 

The creation of object types and drawing key legends will have become less labor-intensive and error-prone with the use of a new Graphic Legends tool. Vectorworks claims that by automatically allocating resources, allowing for simple adjustment, and customizing the process, it fully eliminates the tedious process of creating graphic legends. 

The FUTURE is BIM Shaped, Connect with BIM Experts

Additionally, there are new ways to import Revit files, giving users more flexibility and control when collaborating with consultants and other users of the Revit platform. More Revit object types can now be translated by Vectorworks, and users can now directly reference Revit files for a more collaborative workflow.  New technologies and capabilities for the BIM Collaboration Format (BCF) files, which are the industry standard, are included in Vectorworks Architect 2023. The BCF Manager may now remain open thanks to a new dedicated web palette, allowing users to work and manage BIM model modifications via BCF while utilizing cloud-based collaboration tools and CDEs. In the context of Open BIM, this is a workflow requirement that is becoming increasingly crucial. 

  • Better BIM for Landscape Architecture

Vectorworks Landmark 2023 will also provide you with new and enhanced features that will further demonstrate why it is the BIM leader in the landscape architecture sector. These skills include: 

  • New site modifier modes 
  • Simple methods to account for adequate grading on both paved and unpaved surfaces 
  • A large collection of 3D plant geometry is available as a result of a collaboration with Laubwerk 

Vectorworks 2023 will also have an enhanced and extensive library of 3D plant geometry with a variety of detail levels, seasonal variations, and growth representations for more precise 3D plant representation, documentation, and collaboration thanks to the partnership with Laubwerk.  Finally, new tools for efficient drainage, vehicular and pedestrian usage, as well as contour sketching and editing, will be complemented by grading improvements. 

  • Upgraded Entertainment Design Tools

In terms of entertainment design solutions for the industries of theatre, performance, and exhibition space design, Vectorworks is the undisputed global leader. The most crucial tools in Vectorworks Spotlight 2023 will continue to receive upgrades and enhancements that reduce the amount of manual effort required of users.  Vectorworks 2023 will focus on implementing ongoing enhancements to Vectorworks Spotlight and ConnectCAD. Your most crucial tools will be upgraded, which will reduce the amount of tiresome manual work you have to complete.  Your workflows will be more productive and efficient thanks to the enhancements listed below: 

  • Faster cable planning and configuration 
  • Simpler object selection and editing with the Power Planning palette 
  • Options for managing cables and devices on the Property the Power Planning palette in view 
  • Now, all connected cables submit reports to Data Tags. 
  • Improved riser diagrams and reports in ConnectCAD that happen more quickly 

According to Darick DeHart, chief product officer of Vectorworks, ‘Delivering these frequently requested improvements to the existing functionality in our entertainment products will undoubtedly make the upgrading process for Vectorworks Spotlight users smoother than ever before.’ 

  • Enhanced User Experience for Designers

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqKrxQgsktY Video Source:  Vectorworks A designer’s initial experience with Vectorworks 2023 is accentuated by routine performance improvements that get you started, speed up tasks, and are less obtrusive.  Your experience in Vectorworks 2023 will be more streamlined thanks to the following enhancements and updates: 

  • A fresh Home Screen function 
  • The Shaded Render Mode has been updated. 
  • An improved Offset Edge to speed up your 3D modeling procedure 

All users of the software now have access to a single location for getting started, learning, training, and other possibilities for advancement through the new Home Screen.  The new tool called Offset Edge facilitates a streamlined and fluid 3D modeling process by enabling you to push/pull faces and offset edges from both planar and non-planar surfaces for quick modeling and effective design exploration.  The Shaded Render Mode has also been updated to support an infinite number of light sources, environmental lighting, reflections, and object reflections, giving designers a strong and realistic working rendering mode to aid in making better-informed design decisions and guaranteeing higher-quality rendering.  Director of Product Technology Dave Donley commented ‘It has never been easier to work in 3D. Now, you can view the model in a realistic environment that includes lighting and materials. Instantaneous changes to geometry, materials, and lighting help you get a true sense of how your design will appear, and the high-quality rendering makes this possible. One of those features, New Shaded Rendering, once you use it, you’ll never want to use anything else again.’
