Vectorworks, Inc. to Showcase Software and Preview Future Immersive Technologies at AIA
April 27, 2017Demos and presentations of features that support entire design phase planned at booth 2863
Orlando, FL (April 27, 2017)—During the AIA Conference on Architecture 2017 in Orlando, Florida from April 27-April 29, global design and BIM software developer Vectorworks, Inc. will be at booth 2863 in the Software & Technology Pavilion. Vectorworks will offer personalized Vectorworks Architect software demos and presentations on features that enable designers to complete any project in any phase of design. Upcoming immersive technologies will also be previewed.
Vectorworks Architect is an industry-leading architectural design and BIM software that helps connect the entire design process from concept to construction in one platform. From 2D drafting and 3D modeling to creating coordinated construction documents and fully developed BIM models, Vectorworks Architect’s broad set of design and BIM capabilities allow architects to do more than just information modeling, while increasing productivity and unlocking creativity. With Vectorworks, designers can take on a project of any scale, from urban planning, high-rise buildings, to interior renovations and fit outs.
“Depending on the types of projects or the phase of design, an architect’s workflow can vary greatly,” said Dan Monaghan, vice president of marketing at Vectorworks. “This can lead architects to use many different software programs to get jobs out the door. Although BIM is essential in today’s processes, the truth is, as an architect you need more than BIM, and Vectorworks offers more.”
Furthermore, Vectorworks Architect has the largest number of import and export capabilities in the industry, allowing designers to seamlessly collaborate and share with everyone involved in the design process. During AIA, attendees can take an in-depth look at Vectorworks Architect by scheduling a personalized demo. Specifically, there will be demo stations of 3D laser scanning, advanced 3D modeling tools, virtual reality and BIM.
There will be three new immersive technologies in the years to come that will offer new ways to view and present models to better sell clients. Demos for the following will take place at the show:
- Previously introduced with Vectorworks 2017 in September of 2016, web view and virtual reality will receive substantial usability and visual improvements, such as ambient occlusion.
- Using panorama capabilities, designers and clients may experience the model in wide immersive view.
- Using an iOS® or Android™ mobile device and a 2D floor plan, designers may benefit from Augmented Reality technology to view a 3D, virtual version of their model on top of their plan.
Email Vectorworks’ Senior Marketing Program Coordinator Samantha Link at SLink@vectorworks.net to schedule a demo of these technologies during AIA.
