Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc. Announces Partnership with NCS Colour AB

Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc.’s new partnership with NCS Colour AB, will bring the availability of NCS’s web-based color palette tool, & NCS Navigator, to and tailored for Vectorworks Architect.


With NCS, Vectorworks software users will have access to 1,950 standardized colors in the Natural Colour System®©, a logical color notation system that builds on the way in which humans see color. Each notation represents a specific color precept and describes the color visually—it is not dependent on limitations caused by pigments, light rays or nerve signals.

By using the NCS Navigator online tool, architects can create custom palettes and export them to the Vectorworks program for use in their designs. This will help ensure accurate color selection for finishes in their designs.

“Vectorworks is all about design, and designers need to be able to control color, the dynamic and intuitive NCS color portal will allow Vectorworks users to custom build high-quality project color schemes in no time.” said Robert Anderson, Vice President of Integrated Practice, Nemetschek Vectorworks.

“We are excited about our collaboration with Nemetschek and the potential it brings to Vectorworks users to support color exactness throughout the process of communicating, visualizing and realizing a design project. It is a partnership based around facilitating the efforts of every Vectorworks user by incorporating color reliability and color design to their processes and projects via NCS Navigator 2.0 Premium.” Anderson concludes.

To see it in action there’s a video with step-by-step instructions regarding how to create and export custom color palettes from NCS Navigator to Vectorworks:
