10.1 Updater Page

Vectorworks 10.1 updaters for Mac and Windows are now available. Version 10.1 contains wide-ranging quality improvements and introduces several new features for creating and editing walls. You can find more information on the changes in the release notes document.

The Vectorworks ARCHITECT 10.1 updater contains a number of wall improvements, including a new Cavity Join tool that allows users to correctly join together walls containing complex cavities. In addition, a global Show/Hide Cavity preference makes it easy to display cavity walls correctly at varying scales. And lastly, Y joins can now be completed in a single step in all Vectorworks products.

This single download will update the 10.0.1 versions of ARCHITECT, LANDMARK, MECHANICAL, Vectorworks, and Renderworks to version 10.1. If you are currently using a version of Vectorworks prior to 10.0.1, you must first install 10.0.1 and then update to 10.1. The online updater for Vectorworks 10.1 does not affect Vectorworks SPOTLIGHT 10 as it was released as a 10.1 product. If you need to install Vectorworks SPOTLIGHT 10.1, you must obtain the 10.1 CD as described below.

This updater will ask for the current location of your Vectorworks installation and will update it in place. It modifies only files which were originally installed with the product and leaves other files untouched. If you have customized Vectorworks since installing, you should make a backup prior to installing the 10.1 update.

For a nominal shipping fee customers can request the final 10.1 installer on CD by visiting our website, https://secure.nemetschek.net/10_1update/10_1_CD_request.html or by calling 888-646-4223.
