Watch for Vectorworks new 2017 version coming in September
August 18th, 2016 by Susan Smith
Biplap Sarkar, CEO of Vectorworks, spoke at the spring AIA 2016 Convention about the upcoming features for the new version of Vectorworks coming out in September.
Other architectural features include the ability to move slabs separately from walls or to be open or partially covered by walls.
“There is no change to the interface,” said Sarkar. “The shell is what people see, the core is the center. We have separated them so that we can change the core without disrupting the shell.”
According to the website, keeping current with Vectorworks software allows you to maximize your efficiency and take advantage of cutting-edge technology. Our subscription program, Vectorworks Service Select, is the most cost-effective way to ensure that you will always have access to the most current version of our software. We have updated our upgrade policy to reflect the continued growth of our subscription program and the advancements of our software.
As of September 14, 2016, Vectorworks, Inc. will discontinue the current upgrade options that are available for licenses four or more versions behind the current version. Users who are designing with one of these older versions will only be able to transition to the current version by purchasing a new license. For example, when Vectorworks 2017 is released this fall, users who are designing with Vectorworks 2013 will only be able to transition to the current version by purchasing a new license. This policy change applies across all product lines.
Vectorworks Service Select members will continue to receive access to the latest version of their software as part of their subscription benefits.
