Vectorworks 2010 to incorporate Unified View

updated 04:10 pm EDT, Fri September 11, 2009

Due within weeks

Nemetschek has formally announced Vectorworks 2010, an update to its Mac CAD software launching later this month. A primary addition is the Unified View, which lets users work in 3D while retaining normal class and layer structure setups. The view also introduces VW09's snapping technology into the 3D realm, including cursor queues and automatic guide and extension lines.

A related technology, Planar Graphics, projects 2D information into 3D space with or without the separate 3D data. Among some 80 other new features is Dimension Constraint Management, an option that lets users control object dimensions by changing length figures in a text field. Performance enhancements have meanwhile been made to the suite's engine, and Nemetschek claims that the Mac version should be faster under Snow Leopard than the corresponding Windows Vista/7 edition.
