VectorWorks 2009

Nemetscheck North America has released the latest version of its design software suite, VectorWorks 2009, adding a Parasolid modeling kernel. The set of programs includes Designer, Architect, Landmark, Spotlight, Machine Design and Fundementals, and Renderworks. The addition of Siemens' Parasolid kernel further develops VectorWorks' 3D modeling capabilities, pushing the speed four to five times faster than the previous version and 16 times faster when triangulating curved surfaces, according to Nemetscheck.

User interface technology has been enhanced, improving cursor selection, pre-selection, and intelligent snapping including a Snap Loupe function. The suite of tools allows users to create designs, render models, and present the final product.

Other additions to the programs include a landscape area tool, duplicate array command for objects in walls, unfolding surfaces, similar object creation, and move command for objects in walls.

VectorWorks 2009 programs are available from Nemetscheck, with prices varying from $1,300 to $2,500 for new licenses; other options are available for upgrades or multiple seats.
