Easy and Powerful Landscaping Platform.
Comentarios: Landscaping and easy irrigation tracking solution, that provides excellent design options for the landscape 3D design production.
Puntos a favor:
Powerful BIM solution which provides Architects and Engineers with excellent landscaping design and planning functions. The easy interface to manipulate the system, excellent data import capabilities and to schedule using the software.
The tool has nothing to dislike, with experienced Architect, the rest can effective be perfect through the platform.
Satisfied Landscape Architect Looking for More
Comentarios: I consider myself a true Vectorworks power user and I generally really like the software. I don't think that any other BIM options exist for full scale landscape architecture practice, but that doesn't mean they wont appear. I worry that Vectorworks, if it doesn't focus on the key user experience and demands, trying to boost performance in many of the fundamental aspects of the software (speed, documentation, etc.) it will be surpassed by another company that does or has more resources to devote to these issues. Overall, very pleased, just wanting more.

I think the BIM/modeling capabilities of the software are impressive and on track for where platforms need to be to compete in the growing technologically integrated, data intensive design workspace.
I feel the program makes certain workflows complex and others too simple. More attention needs to be devoted to large scale landscape architecture project and workflows and needs. If it scales to the maximum it can easily be scaled back for less complicated situations. Additionally I really feel attention needs to be paid to speed and file size. The more data intensive a design gets, the software often results in longer than acceptable lags, openings, crashes, simple tasks. The creates a dilemma for the designer, do I or do I not invest in a workflow upfront that potentially could help down the line, but may cause the software to break and lose the entire investment. On a practical level, more resources need to be dedicated to enhancing the documentation side of the software. Text, notes, internal links, details, viewports, etc. are all things that are fundamental to our everyday workflow, but many of them haven't been updated in years or operate in truly efficient BIM ways. Often it seems like VW caters its development time to the new exciting tools and less to fine tuning and perfecting the tools that have been there forever that need the most help. I hope this changes.
The good and the bad
Comentarios: I think the program has a lot of capabilities, but some functions don't work as easy as they should. Some things are not as intuitive as they should be. It is a good program with many features and is overall helpful, but as you you can see there are also many frustrations that come with it. Overall, I like it and wouldn't change because we are heavily invested in it at this point. I do believe it is the best program for what we do - landscape and hardscape design-build, but also believe there is a better way for many features and tech support.

Capabilities of the program are immense. Visualization for designers and clients is great. I love every drawing being in color and capability of doing 3d visualization in the same program. Customization is also a bonus. I love the rotate plan tool, color symbols, 3d (although this is a total pain to use most of the time), and customization options. Many useful drawing tools as well. The sales guys are nice and helpful when needed. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] answers emails and ?'s MUCH faster than tech support. Training is good. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] knows it all and is a great resource too. Highly recommend the training as soon as you begin the program. The Summit is also a great learning experience and a great opportunity to meet with other designers while upping your VW game at the same time.
It took entirely too long to set up - should come with a landscape template, symbols, and useable worksheets and some amount of training. I did the Core Concepts and Intermediate Training courses and those were helpful. The program often stalls, no matter how nice the computer, the blue circle of death is very irritating. Service Select doesn't answer in a timely manner (usually at least a week when I've already completed a project by the time they FINALLY call/email back). Very little, good up to date resources on You Tube and in help menu. They do training ALL THE TIME, why not share those videos and organize and market them for users? We've had many private training sessions, and I'd be more than willing to share those with others who have the same ?'s. Seems like some basic things aren't set up correctly. I've spent more than 2 years creating my library and would LOVE to share that with others (of course for a fee because we've invested heavily in it - to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars of time, resources, etc.). If you have time and patience, creating library is okay. When you change to a new version, you have to resave every drawing - UGH - and then find your library and reattach, etc etc so I have to call EVERY year which is annoying to get that set back up.
Comentarios: I have had no business issues with VW since I got the program in 2011. The company has a great program for owners of the software with extensive learning capabilities. The initial purchase price of the program is very reasonable and the annual support thru Vectorworks Service Select gives me unlimited support and I alwys get the most up to date versions. The very best thing about the company is that I own the license and I am not dealing with a subscription.

I use the Landmark version with render works. I am pleased with the ability of the software to allow the import of base data from virtually any other site program. While most of my work is in land planning I do use the landscape architecture elements in planting plans and site studies for my clients. This is the best landscape architecture based program I have ever found that was inclusive with 2d and 3d drawings and modeling, BIM ready, and full rendering capability built in for a great price. The VSS portal allows immediate access to technical support. They answer quickly and they are always willing to spend whatever time it takes to solve your issue.
I was an Autodesk user for over thirty years when I first acquired the software in 2011. There was a learning curve to get adapted to the VW way of working but I was in good shape within three months. I was functional with the product after the initial 40 hour basics class. The learning curve was the only con I could think of.

I love the ability to turn on and off layers, so I can really see what is going on at different levels and make sure that everything is working together to create a fantastic experience for the client.
There is a LOT to learn to really use this product to it's fullest potential.
