New functionality result of collaboration with fellow Nemetschek Group company Bluebeam
As part of a Service Pack 2 update for Vectorworks 2017, the CAD/BIM software tool now includes improved PDF export functionality thanks to tighter integration with Bluebeam Revu.
With the new functionality, PDFs exported from Vectoworks now automatically include Vectorworks space object data and attributes. Space objects can be used as dynamic, data-rich massing model components, supporting BIM workflows as part of the 2D/3D design process with parametric modelling. These PDF files can be readily imported by users of Bluebeam Revu PDF creation, editing and markup software. This, says Vectorworks, saves time and increases accuracy by eliminating the need to enter space object data manually every time an architect issues a revised set of construction drawings.
Both Vectorworks and Bluebeam are both part of the Nemetschek Group
