Nemetschek North America Releases the Vectorworks 2009 Product Line

Columbia, Maryland (September 15, 2008)-Nemetschek North America today announced the 2009 release of their award-winning Vectorworks® line of design software, including: Designer, Architect, Landmark, Spotlight, Machine Design, Fundamentals, and Renderworks. The Vectorworks 2009 product line features a robust new engine that gives users superior 2D and 3D capabilities, at speeds that are up to 4-5 times faster for modeling operations. In addition, new features and enhancements were developed with direct input from Vectorworks users, resulting in a new version with enhanced usability, improved 3D modeling, and optimized workflows that will turbo-boost productivity and facilitate collaboration.

The Vectorworks 2009 product line is powered by Parasolid®, the industry-leading CAD/CAM/CAE modeling kernel from Siemens PLM Software. Given the large-scale modeling requirements of the A/E/C industry, Nemetschek North America believes the best way to build a strong modeling platform is to leverage the investment the manufacturing industry has made in software development. Embedding a mature modeling software engine like Parasolid into the Vectorworks products-which already had unique free-form solids and surface modeling capabilities-establishes Vectorworks as a best-in-class architectural 3D solution. If you can imagine it, Vectorworks can represent it.

"For years the MCAD industry has been taking advantage of the robustness that the Parasolid modeling kernel provides, and with Vectorworks 2009 product line, we’ve laid the foundation for bringing that true modeling robustness to the A/E/C industry" says Dr. Biplab Sarkar, Nemetschek North America's Chief Technology Officer.

Additionally, innovative new interface functionality in Vectorworks 2009 products enhances usability. The pre-selection indication feature provides intelligent feedback from the cursor. Used in conjunction with drawing tools, SmartCursor snapping allows users to draw with more precision.

"Using Parasolid modeling, and the simplicity of smart point and smart edge snapping with pre-selection highlights on every move, makes designing a breeze," says Katerina Panagiotakis of Thalassi.

There are more than 70 other features in version 2009 that provide users with a software application that gives them the flexibility to design the way they want, the versatility to address all phases of design, and the intuitiveness to enable them to work the way they think.
