Improvements in Underlying Technology

Vectorworks 2022 incorporates the latest technology

Vectorworks is subject to ongoing development to ensure it can take advantage of advances in both hardware and software technology. Vectorworks 2022 will run natively on the latest Apple silicon (M1) processors, giving positive gains in performance for Mac users and keeping Vectorworks' core technology well-aligned with the future direction of Apple hardware.

Developments have also been under way to increase stability, ensure long-term system interoperability, and improve interactive real-time graphics in critical areas of Vectorworks. As part of a modernisation initiative, Vectorworks have been working to ensure that the Vectorworks Graphics Module (VGM) technology is purpose-built for users' chosen hardware: Metal on Mac and DirectX on Windows. Vectorworks users will be able to leverage the most robust technology available for better file performance.

Redshift Render

Redshift is now in Vectorworks

In partnership with Maxon, Vectorworks 2022 now incorporates a new GPU-accelerated mode called “Redshift.” Redshift speeds up rendering time without sacrificing the quality of users' designs by using features like lighting, reflections, volumetric effects, camera effects, and anti-aliasing.

Direct Link to Twinmotion

Direct link from Vectorworks to Twinmotion

In Vectorworks 2022, there is now a direct link between the Vectorworks model and Twinmotion that allows users to quickly make changes in Vectorworks and easily have them reflected in the linked file. By eliminating the intermediate steps of exporting and importing, users can save time and easily control the quality of necessary geometries.

Interactive UI Improvements

Improved UI in Vectorworks 2022

There are significant UI improvements in Vectorworks 2022. Modernisation of the Attributes palette lets users organise their workspace with a more efficient tool palette layout. The new UI also provides accurate and immediate visual previews, removing the need to open dialog boxes. The new Status Bar gives users quick access to the smart cursor settings, hold snapping options, and toggle snapping on or off.

Per-Face Texture Mapping

Per Face Texture Mapping

Upgrades to the texturing workflow give users the ability to map textures to different faces of the same solid modelling object with the ability to rescale and more. Users can reduce texturing time with this efficient and more perceptive way to freely create custom objects. The render tab of the Object Info Palette has also been updated to let users easily view and manage the textures on the object’s various faces. This feature is not applicable to parametric objects.

Direct Stair Editing

Improved stair tool in Vectorworks 2022

It is now much easier to configure staircases. Enhancements to the stair plug-in object introduce interactive placement and reshaping in both 2D and 3D views. With the new rectangle and polygon mode users can easily place a stair between walls or follow a floor opening without measuring distances. Just draw a rectangle or a path and the stair object is placed. The new tool settings allow users to set the side length, width, and total rise of the stair without opening the dialog box. Users can also use control points to stretch and contract stairs to change the length or curvature within a space.

Wall Component Control

Wall Component Control

In Vectorworks 2022 users can define wall component wrapping at window and door openings for a more realistic BIM model and accurate 2D drawings. The round wall and straight wall object have been combined into a singular object type (Wall), providing more accurate data and easier reporting.

Worksheet Expansions

Worksheet Improvements in Vectorworks 2022

UI improvements make generating targeted reports, schedules, and material take-offs for complex objects easier. Vectorworks 2022 brings simplified worksheets and better visual cues to allow richer reporting of complex models. Between redesigned criteria, a new search function interface, and an improved formula bar with a new set of functions, users won’t waste time wrestling with documentation, leaving more time for BIM modelling.

Civil3D DWG Support

Civil3D File Import

Save time and avoid frustration with improved Civil3D file import. With the latest release, users no longer have to request specially exported DWG files to view Civil3D objects. Instead, these objects will become Vectorworks groups, each containing all of the necessary geometry. And the best part? Exchanges with internal and external civil engineers are handled more directly with less risk todata.

GIS and BIM Exchange

GIS and IFC Improvements in Vectorworks 2022

Vectorworks is now better capable of reading the georeferencing data embedded in a DWG file, an image, or an IFC import, so users can now import and export files without losing this data. There are also better default options and improved coordination and alignment when exchanging DWG and IFC files for projects.

Plant Root Zone

Root ball settings in Vectorworks 2022

Get complete representations of installed plants with the new root ball settings. The added geometry and specified data for plant root balls provide the crucial information users need to complete usersr BIM for landscape workflow and better collaborate with consultants. The new additions to the Plant Object allow for both 2D and 3D representation of root balls, and excavation zones.

ArcGIS Feature Layers

ArcGIS Feature Layers in Vectorworks 2022

See an efficiency boost within GIS/BIM workflows with easier integration for site planning and collaboration. In partnership with Esri, users can now access, download, and incorporate an incredible amount of information into a design with the vector geometry and data using Vectorworks Layers. Functionality to export and upload from Layers back to the ArcGIS Feature Layers makes it easier to manage specific geospatial data beyond traditional methods and collaborate with GIS professionals.

GIS Support for Tree Surveys

GIS Support for Tree Surveys

The process for importing various tree survey types is simpler with location parameters for geographical and cartesian coordinates built in with the newly added GIS support for tree surveys. users’ll benefit from the new geospatial import methods when documenting existing vegetation for biodiversity and biomass considerations, and import pertinent survey area types like mass plantings, meadows, and more.

Site Model Components

Site Model Components

Enjoy the ability to define subsurface geological strata as components within a Site Model. Site model components now create solid geometry that can be accurately represented in 2D elevation, section, and textured 3D views. The upgraded object components accommodate fixed or variable thicknesses of the strata, allowing users to create a more realistic BIM model.

Additional Details

Graphics Cards

Graphics cards should support at a minimum macOS Metal GPUFamily1 and Windows DirectX 11; cards not meeting this recommendation will not work. In general, the more powerful your graphics card is, the better your Vectorworks experience will be.  


macOS users should use the latest stable version of macOS available (non-beta), as macOS includes ongoing fixes for video drivers. From our testing, Metal drivers in old macOS versions may show serious issues on certain specific video hardware; after updating to the latest macOS the same hardware performed well and without issues. Similarly, minor version updates may improve stability; graphics problems seen on certain hardware on macOS 10.15.1 were resolved simply by upgrading to macOS 10.15.7. For these reasons we recommend using the latest macOS with your system.


Regarding macOS 10.14 (Mojave): Vectorworks 2022 uses Metal for graphics processing. In our testing, macOS 10.14 video drivers on certain hardware showed multiple serious problems with Metal processing. Therefore, Vectorworks system requirements require at least macOS 10.15. We expect this requirement will help users avoid serious issues with Metal graphics in Vectorworks 2022.

Using Multiple View Panes with different visibilities in all panes can be VRAM-intensive and require at least 2GB of VRAM, with 3GB or more recommended for large Vectorworks documents.


Vision requires a dedicated OpenGL 4.1 compatible graphics card, preferably released in the past three years. We do not recommend any integrated Intel video chipset. While Vision may run under these environments, we do not support them due to their lack of performance and speed. We recommend gaming cards over workstation cards for Vision due to the higher clock speed.  


Remote and Virtual Machines

Users should not expect high performance in remote environments such as Remote Desktop, Terminal Services and VNC or virtual machine environments such as Parallels and VMware.

Vectorworks will run under Boot Camp on Mac machines provided all drivers are up to date.
