Nemetschek Vectorworks releases new Nomad 2.5

Nomad gets nifty new Dropbox integration, including processing of Vectorworks files via VCS as well as new top plan viewport snapping


This month Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc., has released a new improved version of its mobile CAD/BIM application, Nomad 2.5.

Key new functionality includes integration with Dropbox and snapping to top plan viewports. Users can now link their Dropbox cloud accounts to Vectorworks Cloud Services and access Dropbox files from the mobile application. This expands on flexibility for how users utilize popular as well as vertical cloud storage services.

Additionally, Vectorworks Cloud Services can now “process” Vectorworks files that are stored within a Dropbox account and generate PDFs as output.

“The integration with Dropbox and the improved user interactions for measurement in Vectorworks Nomad 2.5 are direct results of customer feedback,” said Dr. Biplab Sarkar, chief technology officer of Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc. “When we surveyed our users, we found that the ability to use available file storage products was one of their top priorities, and their number one wish for improvement was mobilesnapping.”
