How can I share data in and out of Vectorworks Designer?
Vectorworks Designer software handles a large variety of image, vector and model formats. You can import or export drawings in DXF/DWG or DWF format, which will allow you to seamlessly and accurately send files back and forth between our program and other CAD applications. You can also exchange BIM models successfully using our certified IFC support, as well as import Point Cloud data – 3D scans of existing environments – to provide context for your models. Plus, you can create presentations and images using PDF, DWF, JPG, TIF and EPS files. For exchanging 3D data freely with a great number of other modeling applications, Vectorworks Designers supports Parasolid X_T, SAT, IGS, 3DS, STL, SKP, KML, 3DM, STEP, 3DPDF and OBJ formats. You can even export Cinema 4D, FBX and COLLADA models for use in other standalone modeling and rendering applications. Vectorworks Designer also enables native Data Exchange with Lightwright, ASCII Patch files, Hoist Data exchange and Native Vision export files for entertainment professionals.
