Product Details

What is Vectorworks Landmark?

Vectorworks Landmark, from Nemetschek company Vectorworks headquartered in Columbia, is a building information modeling (BIM) solution that provides a variety of tools to help designers build and present 2D and 3D design concepts, and illustrate site conditions for existing and potential sites.

As a landscape design solution, Landmark tools support planning and creative work for irrigation, hardscapes, interior design, and other site or building projects. With its search and layout, the software is designed to make it easy for designers to find the needed tools to design, analyze, report, and share, without struggling to find the right function. And with its integration with ArcGIS, the popular geographic information system from Esri, users can geolocate a project by entering an address. This allows the user to incorporate data, such as satellite data, or street maps.

Users can also import CAD drawings, maps, or BIM models in a variety of formats (e.g. IFC, gbXML, DWG/DXF, OBJ, STL, and 3DS, and PDF) from other CAD tools (e.g. SketchUp, Revit, Rhino) to use Landmark as a data store. Landmark includes tools to enhance modelling, such as history-based modelling, structural grids, materials with graphical and building attributes, as well as railings and fences, and a realistic foliage designer. Designers can deploy illustration tools to draw attention or explain a model while sharing (e.g. circle objects, draw or colorize landscape features for emphasis, etc.). For presenting interiors, Vectorworks Landmark provides tools for 2D graphical presentations, 3D walkthroughs for virtual reality, and image effects (e.g. area lighting) to provide a sense of immersion, as well as a web view for presentation on a website, or camera view.

Recently added features (2021) included with Vectorworks Cloud Services is folder sharing with access permissions, which was added to enable designers to more easily and securely share projects with teammates and stakeholders.

As landscape architects, we use Vectorworks throughout our entire design workflow, from schematic design and presentation drawings all the way through construction documents. Vectorworks allows us to exchange drawing information with architects and engineers on our project teams who might be using AutoCAD, Revit, or Civil 3D. Our entire professional staff uses Vectorworks on the Mac OS platform.
  • I tell people that Vectorworks is CAD for people who know how to draw. You can control the appearance of all the objects on a layer, or you can tweak the way a single object looks. Most of the barriers to producing good-looking, legible drawings are removed.
  • Vectorworks Landmark is made for landscape architects.Creating hardscape, planting, and irrigation plans is pretty straightforward.
  • There's a bit of inconsistency in the operation of some tools that would appear to the user to be more similar.
  • Importing complex Revit models takes a long time and, if the model has a lot of symbols in it, the import might not finish.
Vectorworks is just as useful for perfectly measured, hard-line CAD drawing as it is for making beautiful presentation drawings and renderings. Tools in the application allow you to transition between working drawings and presentation drawings without modifying the underlying geometry. DWG exchange with other design team members works very well.
  • There is a learning curve for new employees, as regionally Vectorworks is not in wide use and generally not introduced in the academies
  • However, because it is more intuitive as far as WYSIWYG drawing, most people pick up the basics pretty quickly.
  • It's a really powerful suite of tools. Sometimes it's good to spend some time afforded by a larger project to explore ways to use the software more efficiently (e.g., improving worksheets, using different smart object tools, etc.)
I was an AutoCAD user before switching to Vectorworks when coming to work with my current firm. Vectorworks Landmark includes tools specifically designed for landscape architects - it's not an AutoCAD add-on. The initial investment for a new seat is much less than AutoCAD, and the Service Select program pushes down the annual upgrade cost even more.
