Vectorworks Architect 2011

This review takes a detailed look at the BIM capabilities of Vectorworks Architect, a relatively late entrant into the field of architectural BIM applications, and explores if it is indeed possible to create a full-fledged BIM model with it.  With advanced 3D modeling, rendering, and documentation capabilities, a price that is almost half of that of other BIM applications, cross-platform capability, and strong IFC support, Vectorworks Architect has a lot to recommend it, even if it does not have all the bells and whistles of more established BIM solutions.

  1. Hi Lachmi,

    Great review – have always been interested to find out more regarding Vectorworks’ BIM capabilities. Sounds like it is the kind of application that would represent a good first step for a practice thinking of implementing BIM, but for a firm already using Revit or ArchiCAD, Vectorworks might not seem as capable.

    One question – does Vectorworks Architect 2011 have the ability to export to gbXML for energy analysis?
