Upcoming Version of the Design and BIM Product Line Focuses on Empowering Designers with Comprehensive Solutions for Faster Workflows from Start to Finish.
COLUMBIA, Md., Aug. 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Global design and BIM software provider Vectorworks, Inc. is preparing to release the 2024 version of its product line, dedicated to providing comprehensive solutions that automate processes and let designers tackle more complex problems with less effort. The upcoming version includes Vectorworks Architect, Landmark, Spotlight, Design Suite and Fundamentals, along with 2024 versions of ConnectCAD, Braceworks and Vision.
“Vectorworks 2024 represents a significant move forward in integrating our tools into specific design workflows. By taking a holistic and high-level approach, we work hard to ensure that our software aligns seamlessly with the natural processes of designers,” said Vectorworks CEO Dr. Biplab Sarkar. “From ideation to final execution, this latest version has been carefully crafted to ensure new tools and existing features work together harmoniously to diminish disruptions and enhance productivity.”
The 2024 product line is set to impress Vectorworks users across all industries, featuring a wide range of innovative tools and feature improvements. Get ready to experience these standout updates and many others soon.
For all Designers
In a continued effort to save designers valuable time, Vectorworks 2024 delivers an updated and modernized user interface that makes working in Vectorworks more efficient and easier to customize. The reorganized View and Mode bars bring a wide range of tools to the forefront, so users can decide how to organize tools and shortcuts for easy access.
Additionally, Project Sharing has been rebuilt to ensure project data and geometry is always current in a project file. Project Sharing+ tracks every change, every time, and substantially improves reliability regardless of your team or project size. Designers will see another massive productivity gain with the ability to save custom viewport settings as “styles,” making them easily transferable between viewports on different sheets or project files, cutting out the tedium of replicating viewport settings and avoiding errors.
Vectorworks’ commitment to delivering a transformative edge in BIM and other digital design workflows is evident in the 2024 version. The newly added ability to reference data from native Excel files reduces manual steps and the risk of user input error, resulting in better connectivity to external data and a new avenue for designers to enhance their collaborative data capabilities.
Creating higher levels of realism earlier in the design process can also be achieved with further improvements to Shaded Rendering. Designers can assess their designs more confidently with improvements to shadow casting and the addition of camera settings that allow them to define depth of field, exposure and bloom for real-world camera-like effects in the real-time Shaded Rendering mode.
For Architects and Interior Designers
Providing BIM tools that cater to the specific needs of architects is always at the forefront at Vectorworks. In the upcoming 2024 version, users will find improved geometry for thresholds and sills, so they’ll better fit with wall closures. Customers will also see more options to control interior and exterior conditions, gaps around doors and windows can be controlled for each side of the opening, and door handing has been standardized to allow for more detailed geometry and data that supports industry standards. Additionally, Materials can now be assigned to doors and windows, guaranteeing accuracy and consistency in visual representation and reporting.
The upcoming version also brings robust parametric objects redefined to address architects’ requirements. New parametric handrails and guardrails can be created from building objects, such as stairs, slabs and ramps, and they bring the flexibility and accuracy needed to create more custom configurations. New parametric cabinet objects for interior projects help easily create a greater range of cabinet configurations and provide more interactive placement and generation for easier editing and customization. With these improvements, designers can produce models and documentation confidently.
For Landscape Architects and Designers
Vectorworks is dedicated to empowering landscape architects and designers with intuitive design and creation tools, enabling their active and meaningful participation in the BIM process. The new, automated Fence tool will save significant time while designing in 2D and 3D and also allow for accurate material reporting, reducing the chance for errors in material specifications. It is optimized for simplified and detailed representations and supports integrated posts, gates and terrain-conforming options like sloped or stepped. Landscape designers now have the necessary tool to design a complete fence project in 2D and 3D for more accurate documentation and better collaboration.
For Lighting and Live Event Designers
The Equipment Lists feature exemplifies our focus on providing automated solutions to manual, complex and repetitive tasks experienced in the Entertainment industry by unifying the equipment and inventory tracking process. Equipment Lists streamline the preproduction process by providing the tools to plan and document all the equipment needed by a show or production.
And for those focused on A/V installation, the upcoming ConnectCAD “Share Reports” command lets designers upload design data to Vectorworks Cloud Services as a configurable worksheet so it can be viewed in a web browser on any device, ensuring that all project partners and installers are accessing the most up-to-date information.
In addition to empowering designers with advanced automation and problem-solving capabilities, Vectorworks 2024 will build on the platform’s long-standing commitment to continuously delivering quality improvements. Users can expect several significant quality enhancements in the approaching version, with more detailed information to come soon.
“Continuing our tradition of excellence, Vectorworks 2024 embodies our quality initiative, emphasizing solutions to complex problems,” said Vectorworks Chief Product Officer Darick DeHart. “We believe in the power of comprehensive workflows that address the challenges faced by designers and can’t wait to share more on the exciting improvements in quality that await our users in the new version.”
The upcoming English language release is expected to become available in September 2023 to active Vectorworks Service Select members and subscription customers.

- Decentralized control through Distributed Key Generation (DKG).
- Advanced protocols for zero-knowledge applications.
- Cross-chain compatibility with IBC and XCM.
- Easy migration of existing apps through Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) support.
- Smooth, forkless upgrades.
The Testnet launch kicks off with an in-depth whitepaper, followed by a series of engagement events during the testnet phase. Our mainnet is scheduled for a Q1/Q2 2024 launch, featuring hackathons, workshops, and a targeted grant program to accelerate the adoption of privacy-focused applications.

ChainUp Celebrates 6th Anniversary, Charting Blockchain Innovations beyond Digital Assets
SINGAPORE, Sept. 29, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — ChainUp, a Singapore-based trailblazer and global leader in the blockchain industry, marked its sixth anniversary celebration with more than 500 business partners at Ce La Vi Singapore. During the celebration, ChainUp Founder and CEO, Sailor Zhong reflected on the journey, “Six years in the blockchain industry showcases our resilience, innovation, and forward-looking approach. As we look to the future, we are committed to shaping a digital asset environment that is reliable, transparent, and unparalleled. ChainUp aims to champion blockchain solutions beyond the applications of digital assets and bridge the gap between digital asset markets and traditional finance (TradFi) to increase effectiveness and market efficiency.”
The DEX Renaissance
As decentralized finance (DeFi) comes into prominence and focused on returning control to users, one of the sectors impacted by DeFi are the exchanges where cryptocurrencies are traded. Data from CoinMarketCap reveals that trading volumes on Decentralized exchanges (DEX) reached $1.2 trillion in 2022, indicating a 340% YoY growth. However, factors such as poor user experience impeded the rate of adoption of DEX. Recognizing this trend, ChainUp has updated its white-labeled DEX solution, incorporating advanced features, strengthening its security, improving its liquidity and aims to provide a decentralized trading experience that is on par with commonly-used centralized exchanges (CEX).
Bridging TradFi and Digital Assets Market
The traditional financial sector has been progressing very cautiously on digital assets. As more institutions lean into RWA tokenization, they unlock unparalleled liquidity in a borderless trading environment. Amidst this evolution, ChainUp’s RWA solutions emerge as an industry pioneer, offering robust tokenization protocols, seamless integration, and enhanced security, bridging the gap between TradFi and the digital future with unmatched finesse.
Minimizing Risk and Maximizing Security
ChainUp’s MPC Wallet revolutionizes crypto security by integrating MPC technology with advanced hardware isolation, ensuring utmost safety and encryption on data. The wallet offers dynamic key-refreshing mechanisms, chain-agnostic compatibility, and eliminates single-point vulnerabilities. With efficient multi-address management and 24/7 expert support, users enjoy full asset control, scalability, and cost-efficiency, all under one roof.
Compliance: The Guiding Principle
Navigating global regulations in the blockchain sector can be complex. ChainUp’s KYT subsidiary, Trustformer, offers peace of mind for enterprises tackling compliance-related challenges. ChainUp’s advanced solutions in Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Counter-Terrorist Financing (CFT) show their commitment to a more secure blockchain environment.
