Innovative Irrigation Design

Planning for a site's irrigation involves considerations and calcutions related to both its physical features and resource availability. Vectorworks Landmark software meets all of these needs with innovative irrigation design tools. Create zones of similar watering needs with the new Hyrozone tool and then use built-in worksheets to analyze for water efficiency which makes satisfying a site's water budget allowance easier than ever. Whether specifying lateral and main piping, sprinkler heads, drip systems, valves, controllers, or other system components, the automated and manual placement methods are designed to meeting industry stadnards while giving professionals the flexibility to design, document, and estimate proposed and as-built systems efficiently.
 

Superior 2D

The software's 2D functionality helps you to produce beautiful drawings and high-quality, professional documentation with ease. Our extensive suite of drawing and editing tools make quick work of any type of project, helping you to define and communicate your firm's graphical preference and meet industry standards. Tap into our large libraries of entourage, customizable line types, gradients, dash styles, and unlimited color palettes. Add tile and image fills, stipples, and hatching. Use our exclusive sketch rendering technology to change hard-lined drawings into soft, hand-sketched illustrations, blurring the line between clear, accurate technical documentation and compelling presentations.

Seamless Interoperability

Exchange NURBS models with Rhino or import concept models from SketchUp®. Support of both import and export of OBJ, STL, and 3DS file formats lets you explore the full range of design options by incorporating information from multiple sources, making sweeping changes quickly and easily.

Using IFC, an industry standard BIM file format, communicate effectively with your consultants and collaborators who may be using Revit® or other BIM software. Vectorworks Landmark offers IFC, gbXML, DWG/DXF, and PDF support for document and model exchange.    


 

 

Creative 3D Modeling

Go beyond the limits of traditional CAD software. An advanced suite of Parasolid-based solids and NURBS surface tools lets you create any shape and easily explore geometry. Subdivision surface modeling lets you push, pull, blend, twist, sculpt, deform, or punch holes, creating unique focal pieces, sculptures, water features, play structures, and more. Design from any 3D view using modes in modeling tools that automatically infer working planes as you move your cursor and enjoy the superior quality that allows you to manipulate your model with ease. More accurate object information and better snapping make drawing in 3D easy.

Flexible Workflows & Project Sharing

Go beyond exploration and into development as your concepts mature into concrete solutions all in one application. Work on practically any type of project within a flexible and robust digital environment. Start with any image, sketch, or formal iteration and move easily between 2D and 3D views in a unified working environment.  Then, take advantage of new ways to collaborate and maximize efficiency with Project Sharing, which enables landscape professionals to streamline design document production and manage planting, hardscape, grading, and more — all while multiple designers are working on the same Vectorworks file concurrently.

New in 2019


2d component arch thumb

2D COMPONENTS FOR HYBRID OBJECTS

You’ve made the move to working in 3D. Now, optimize that effort by efficiently creating 2D drawings from your 3D and BIM models. With the new 2D components for hybrid objects capability, we’re putting you in complete control of the detail level your symbols and plug-in objects display. Simply right-click to edit the detail and display of any 2D/3D hybrid object so it draws exactly as you want in plan, elevation, and section views.

image effects arch thumb

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.
 

clipcube arch thumb

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 class arch thumb

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.
 

data tags arch thumb

DATA TAGS

Some aspects of your workflow thrive when flexibility works in predictable ways. The new Data Tag tool in Vectorworks 2019 gives you a consistent and robust method for tagging and displaying data about the intelligent objects and symbols in your model and viewports. Tag objects individually, or automatically tag multiple objects, all while having complete control over the graphic appearance of data tags. This will save you time and simplify the process of managing displayed data in your documents.

site contour land thumb

3D SITE MODEL SCULPTING

Unlike SketchUp and Rhino, site model sculpting in Vectorworks BIM products can be performed on both geometry and on an intelligent site model, so you can run a site analysis and calculate the effects of your changes without having to use specialized add-ons or entirely separate products. With 2019, you can quickly, easily, and intuitively sculpt the site for your project using a variety of Vectorworks direct modeling features, such as reshape and push/pull.

autoturn thumb

AUTOTURN ONLINE

In the past, evaluating whether a design can accommodate the turning paths of vehicles was a time-consuming trial-and-error process. With a new partnership with Transoft Solutions, we’re making it simple to evaluate vehicle access on any project. From Vectorworks’ new AutoTURN® Online browser, simply upload a design, pick a vehicle, perform a simulation, and export the results back into your project file.

VECTORWORKS GRAPHICS MODULE SUPPORT FOR SHEET LAYERS

Our Vectorworks Graphics Module is an exceptional screen-drawing technology that makes it possible for you to enjoy smooth, fast, and reliable generations of drawing and model views while you’re using Vectorworks. With this latest release, your project’s sheet layers now benefit from optimized, multi-threaded technology for use with advanced GPUs. As a result, there’s no performance difference between panning and zooming in a sheet layer compared to a design layer.

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)
