Columbia, Maryland (June 3, 2008)—Nemetschek North America announced today the release of Service Pack 3, a maintenance update for the VectorWorks 2008 product line, which includes VectorWorks Designer, VectorWorks Architect, VectorWorks Landmark, VectorWorks Spotlight, VectorWorks Machine Design, VectorWorks Fundamentals, and RenderWorks.
"We are committed to providing continual improvements of our software based on user-feedback and internal testing. With this update, we focused on enhancing the behavior of referenced files in rotated plan, custom user origins, and design layer viewports when used in combination with each other," explains Paul Pharr, Chief Technology Officer for Nemetschek North America.
In addition, VectorWorks 2008 is now certified with 3Dconnexion's SpaceNavigator™ - a 3D mouse that can easily control and maneuver the 3D environment, which allows for a streamlined design process that increases productivity. Service Pack 3 also allows DXF/DWG file translation for machines running 64-bit Windows operating systems with 4GB of memory.
The 2008 VectorWorks family of design software was released on September 13, 2007. VectorWorks 2008 offers new CAD software technology to optimize workflows, enrich presentations, and facilitate collaboration.
