Nemetschek NA launches new Vectorworks 2010 product line

Nemetschek North America announces Vectorworks 2010 product line up to the public today. The new update features big technology changes, further Parasolid integration and a new Unified View workflow.


Nemetschek North America officially launched the new Vectorworks 2010 product line today, marking a significant milestone for the company. A year ago the company launched Vectorworks 2009 and told the press and their customers they were moving to an annual release cycle with no significant dot 5 release in between. Not only has the company stayed up with its annual cycle promise, Vectorworks 2010 features some major software changes and new features.

We have already covered several new items in other reports and will cover some items more thoroughly later. However, here are the key new features in version 2010:

    Congratulation to Nemetschek for Vectorworks 2010, but for me the most significant “feature” is this is the first Intel only release for Mac OS X. I will not be able to upgrade with my “legacy” 3 year old PowerPC hardware.
