As BIM technology matures across the Design industry, Nemetschek has significantly improved the capabilities of Vectorworks Architect to ensure that collaboration is more efficient and more productive. More freedom to create customized stairs, doors, and windows, and more automation of tasks is only useful when it is accessible. BIM in Vectorworks Architect 2012 brings features with groundbreaking technology that are Jaw dropping in their simplicity.
New BIM features include the addition of Stories to Vectorworks Building design – you can express the elevation of a layer in relationship to the story of a building – when you edit the story elevation, all releated layers adjust too. IFC support has also been upgraded as this openBIM standard has matured.
This paper is intended to answer those questions, as well as introduce BIM users to an additional opportunity to design, build, and operate as efficiently as possible: the concept of Integrated Project Delivery (IPD).
