How can I share information in and out of Vectorworks Architect?
Vectorworks Architect 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. Vectorworks alos allows for a direct import of 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 Architect 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.
In addition, you can share Vectorworks Architect files with your colleagues, clients, printing services and anyone who wants to open, view or print Vectorworks models or documents, using the free Vectorworks Viewer. With the Viewer, you can open files from all Vectorworks products, but the content cannot be changed; all tools except those for printing, navigation, and revision control are locked. Download it (http://www.vectorworks.net/support/downloads) free of charge.
