VectorWorks 2008

VectorWorks is available in multiple versions for designers, architects, landscapers, or engineers. The software allows users to draw in 2D and manipulate designs in 3D.

In this version, the user interface has been simplified, incorporating new palettes to display information, select objects, and a new view bar. 2D plan views can be rotated, and new rotation modes have also been added to 2D tools. Additionally, a total of 180 new marking styles have been included in addition to the Tile command having been improved.

The software supports samples from Pantone, Benjamin Moore, Sherwin-Williams, etc. The opacity control can also be manipulated for each object, and image and PDF files can be directly referenced. Additionally, support has been included for importing Sketchup 6 and Autocad 2007/2008 files.

The system requirements are Mac OS X 10.4.10 or later, QuickTime 6 or later, and a G4 or later (including Intel processors.)
