IMAGE EFFECTS

Now you can accomplish mainstream image editing right inside of Vectorworks. You don’t need to export your designs to other editing applications such as Photoshop® or Illustrator®. The new viewport image effects work with viewports and imported images, which lets you prepare your presentation boards in the same software you used to create your designs.

CLIP CUBE VIEWPORT OPTION

You asked for it, and now you can use the clip cube on sheet layer viewports. And, unlike other applications that have limitations on the visualization of clip cubes, Vectorworks enables you to use clip cubes in any rendered view or style, giving you the efficiency and capability you need to create remarkable sections, elevations, and presentation drawings.

LAYER AND CLASS FILTERING

Searching through long lists to find the layer and class you’re looking for is a huge pain. In 2019 you can instantly find what you’re looking for by typing in a keyword search or using filters to display classes and layers based upon specific properties. Being able to work with filtered lists, and instantly search to find classes or layers, will significantly improve your productivity.

System Recommendations

The following are real-world system requirements for running Vectorworks 2019. In some demanding cases, we would suggest a more capable machine than is described in these hardware profiles. Likewise, there are some less demanding situations where Vectorworks will perform well on older hardware.

General Requirements

Macintosh

Windows

 Operating System

macOS 10.13 (High Sierra)

macOS 10.12 (Sierra)

Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan)

Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite)

 Windows 10 (64-bit)

 Windows 8 (64-bit)

 Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

 Windows 7 SP 1 (64-bit)

 Minimum Hardware Profile

 Entry-level Profile

 Processor

 64-bit Intel Core i5 (or AMD equivalent) or better

 RAM

 4GB or more

 Graphics Card

 OpenGL 2.1 compatible graphics card with 1GB of VRAM or more

 Some integrated graphics cards such as Intel Iris graphics are acceptable for simple models/drawings, but a dedicated graphics card is preferable.

 Vectorworks with Vision requires a dedicated graphics card with 2GB of VRAM or more, preferably released in the past three years (e.g. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 series, AMD Radeon RX 400 series).

 Using multiple view panes with different visibilities in all panes requires a graphics card with at least 2GB of VRAM.

 Display Resolution:

 1440 x 900 or higher

 Hard Disk:

 10GB free disk space is required for the installation. 30GB or more is required for a full installation with all libraries.

 Recommended Hardware Profiles

 High-end Profile

 For large projects, complex and very detailed models/drawings, complex renderings (such as large BIM projects, large entertainment venues, commercial sites, GIS, high end landscaping design, photorealistic rendering)

 Processor

 64-bit Intel Core i7 (or AMD equivalent) clocked at 3GHz or better

 RAM

 16GB-32GB or more

 Graphics Card

 A dedicated OpenGL 2.1 compatible graphics card with 4GB of VRAM or more

 10GB free disk space is required for the installation. 30GB or more is required for a full installation with all libraries.

 Installing Vectorworks on flash storage (SSD) is recommended.

 Network Requirements for Project Sharing

 Project sharing requires high-speed network connections. As the network bandwidth increases, so does project sharing performance. Slower network speeds can still provide a satisfactory user experience if you minimize operations that transfer large amounts of data over the network (such as committing changes to the project file or refreshing a local working file).

 LAN Sharing

 Minimum: A Fast Ethernet (100Mbit/s) network connection

Recommended: A Gigabit Ethernet (1Gbit/s) network connection is required for large projects.

 Cloud Sharing

 Project sharing using cloud-based storage requires a high-speed internet connection (50Mbit/s or above). This method of sharing works best with small teams or small projects. It is not recommended for large teams or large projects.

 Hard Drive

 Storing large project files on flash storage (SSD) is recommended.
