Why Vectorworks Architect?

BIM Software for Every Design Phase
Start with pre-design to confirm design intent, then foster the creative vision with intuituve drawing tools and transition to 3D visualisations. Enjoy coordination and cost estimation as designs develop, and produce automatically updating construction documentation.

Imagine it, Design It, Document It
Vectorworks allows you to freely sketch, model, and document your design ideas with precision drafting capabilities and the most flexible 3D modelling engine available, powered by SIEMENS Parasolid.

Maximise the I in BIM
Vectorworks makes it easy to quantify and analyse information as early as the schematic design phase so you can make smart decisions. Run “what if” scenarios and automate schedules, calculate costs, analyse energy efficiency to maximise each design element.

Work with Anyone
Vectorworks allows you to easily collaborate and share files with colleagues, consultants, and clients. Vectorworks offers extensive import/export capabilities, as well as support for openBIM and IFC, and direct links with Revit, SketchUp, Rhino, Photoshop, and Cinema4D.
