Nemetschek North America ( has
released its first Service Pack for the Vectorworks 2010 product
line. While addressing issues with wall joining and the snap loupe in
particular, this Service Pack has also improved the overall stability
and performance of the package.

“Early feedback from our customers indicates that the initial release
of Vectorworks 2010 was of very good quality,” says Mark Farnan,
director of Software Development at Nemetschek North America. “We
traditionally create a Service Pack for our international localizers
about a month after our initial release, and this gives us a great
opportunity to fix any problems reported by early adopters.”

Currently, this Service Pack is available for all licenses as a
downloadable updater. To install the Service Pack, go to the About
Vectorworks dialog box in the Vectorworks 2010 application and click
Check for Updates.

The 2010 release of the Vectorworks line of design software was
released on Sept. 15 and included: Designer, Architect, Landmark,
Spotlight, Machine Design, Fundamentals, and Renderworks.
Building upon the integration of the Parasolid 3D modeling core in
2009, version 2010 is making change easy with the addition of
bi-directional associativity features and an intuitive,
easy-to-approach 3D modeling environment., says Farnan. These
capabilities ensure that changes are intelligently reflected
throughout the entire design which is a cornerstone for information
modeling workflows in the building industry and beyond, he adds.
