Simplify Your Process

Unlike other software, Vectorworks has the flexibility to support your entire project from beginning to end, or anywhere in the process — from conceptual design, to fully coordinated BIM models, to construction documents. It’s the versatile solution you need to pull everything together and increase your efficiency.

Building design with drawings and 3D rendering  

Imagine it. Design it. Document it. 

BIM software isn’t exactly known for promoting creative expression. But Vectorworks is different. We allow you to freely sketch, model, and document your design ideas with precision drafting capabilities and the most flexible 3D modeling engine available, powered by SIEMENS Parasolid. So you’re not limited by presets and strict parameters — you have the flexibility you need to design anything you can imagine.

Maximize the I in BIM

Getting the most out of the “I” in Building Information Modeling is essential for optimizing your designs. Vectorworks makes it easy to quantify and analyze information as early as the schematic design phase so you can make smart decisions. Run “what if” scenarios and automate schedules, calculate costs, analyze energy efficiency to maximize each design element.

Making the switch is Easy.

Unlike other programs, Vectorworks doesn’t require you to upgrade all your hardware, retrain your staff, or toss your CAD standards and libraries out the window. We’ll make the transition easy by helping you migrate to BIM at your own pace.
