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.

Aperture Finance Secures Series A Funding at a $250M Fully Diluted Valuation to Build Intent-based Architecture for DeFi

Published

on

aperture-finance-secures-series-a-funding-at-a-$250m-fully-diluted-valuation-to-build-intent-based-architecture-for-defi

 $APTR native platform token set for release on May 31, 2024

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 29, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Aperture Finance, a decentralized finance (DeFi) platform pioneering AI-powered intents, has raised a Series A funding round, bringing the total across all rounds to $12 million and valuing the project at $250 million. The round was led by top-tier venture capital firms including Skyland Ventures, Blockchain Founders Fund, and Krypital Group, with participation from notable investors like Alchemy, SNZ, Stratified Capital, Tide, Cipholio, ViaBTC, CatcherVC, and Double Peak. Previous rounds included participation from ParaFi Capital, Arrington Capital, Divergence, Blockchain Founders Fund, Laser Digital (Nomura Group), Skyland Ventures, Costanoa, Rarestone, Krypital Group, Big Brain Holdings, LD Capital, ViaBTC, Cipholio, Double Peak, Athena Ventures, Coinseeker, Artemis Capital, and AWS.

Aperture Finance is innovating the use of Intents, a novel approach designed to streamline complex DeFi operations. Unlike traditional transactional methods, Intents allow users to specify their desired outcomes, simplifying interactions with DeFi protocols and enhancing accessibility. This innovative system leverages Uniswap V3, enabling users to declare end goals, such as liquidity rebalancing at specific price points, with transactions executed only when these conditions are met. The platform is already live on 9 EVM-compatible chains, processing a transaction volume exceeding $2.7 billion with 280,000+ unique users and 15k+ daily active users.

“Intents architecture bridges the gap between sophisticated financial strategies and everyday DeFi users,” said Yonkuro, Head of Crypto at Skyland Ventures. “By enabling users to articulate their financial goals in natural language, Aperture is  making advanced DeFi tools accessible to a broader audience, from retail investors to institutional players.”

The platform’s decentralized network of solvers calculates optimal transaction flows, which are then simulated and ranked by Aperture’s smart contracts. Initially launching with a centralized solver, the network has expanded to third-party solvers including Propeller Heads and Enso Finance with other solvers like Tokka Labs set to join in Q3 2024.

Aperture plans to further leverage its Large Language Model (LLM) interface that will convert user intents expressed in natural language into a domain-specific language (DSL) that can be codified on-chain. This feature aims to ensure clarity and precision in user instructions, further democratizing access to complex financial instruments.

“Aperture Finance is committed to reducing the learning curve in DeFi and providing more strategic options for our users,” said Peter Tan, Head of Product at Aperture Finance. “Our goal is to offer the same level of execution and pricing typically reserved for large institutions, making DeFi more inclusive and effective.”

The new funding will support the development of Aperture’s Intents infrastructure, expand its solver network, and enhance the user experience with the forthcoming LLM integration. This investment underscores the growing confidence in Aperture Finance’s potential to transform the DeFi landscape.

Following a successful airdrop campaign with participation from over 300,000 users, Aperture Finance will launch its $APTR token on Bybit on May 31, 2024.

About Aperture Finance
Aperture Finance is a pioneer in AI-powered intents to enhance the DeFi experience. Featuring an IntentsGPT interface and an AI-driven smart solver simulation, Aperture’s native solver network provides any DeFi user with institutional-grade intelligence. Combining the brightest minds in technology and finance, the founding team includes alumni from Amazon Web Services and Google, Stanford, Cornell, and UC Berkeley, and Citadel, JPMorgan Chase, and AIG. Aperture was a cohort member of Most Valuable Builder V by Binance Labs and participated in CoinMarketCap (CMC) Accelerator and HK Cyberport Incubation Programs.

Vitalik Buterin claws back crypto community’s right to redefine ‘inflation’

Published

on

vitalik-buterin-claws-back-crypto-community’s-right-to-redefine-‘inflation’

Ethereum’s co-founder argues for the crypto community’s authority to redefine “inflation” as the expansion of currency supply, challenging conventional economic definitions and tackling misinformation.

Vitalik Buterin, one of the creators of Ethereum, has emphasized that the crypto community has already staked its claim to redefine the term “inflation.”

Buterin’s remarks were prompted by a post from digital media outlet Axios, which humorously suggested that “inflation” now refers to high prices rather than the traditional concept of rising costs.

Although the Axios post was presented in a lighthearted manner, Community Notes (CN) clarified that the definition of inflation remains unchanged.

Buterin’s response, posted on Farcaster, contested Axios’ interpretation of inflation by asserting that the crypto community has already reshaped the meaning of the term.

“[…] we already decided that it now just means ‘increase in the total supply of a currency’.”

Buterin’s rebuttal garnered support from other users on Farcaster, including former Coinbase employee Binji.eth.

Traditionally, inflation refers to the general increase in the price level of goods and services, resulting in decreased purchasing power as currency value diminishes.

However, Buterin’s argument suggests a cultural shift in the definition of inflation, proposing that ongoing global inflation arises from an essentially unlimited increase in the total supply of currency.

Tech investor Lee Edwards criticized Axios’ initial post for perpetuating misconceptions rather than educating readers.

Buterin has recently been active on Farcaster, advocating for community-driven solutions and initiatives focused on preserving privacy and addressing exploitation issues.

While Buterin has not commented on the concerns surrounding Ethereum Foundation researchers Dankrad Feist and Justin Drake’s involvement with EigenLayer, their decision to become advisors at EigenLayer in exchange for significant compensation in EIGEN tokens has sparked debate within the crypto community.

While some members support the transparency of the disclosures, others have criticized the decision, suggesting that the substantial compensation could influence decision-making.
