Let Beyond Drafting communicate your architectural designs while you focus on creating them.

BEYOND DRAFTING

Vectorworks

If you use Vectorworks, files can of course be exchanged and shared without translation.  (Beyond Drafting uses Vectorworks versions 2016 and 2017; files created in earlier versions can be opened, modified, and then re-saved in their original versions, however, translations aren’t always complete or as expected).  Either your file standards (establishing items such as layers and classes), an industry standard (such as AIA/NCS), or those of Beyond Drafting can be used.  Beyond Drafting’s standards have been developed to facilitate the modeling and drawing process, particularly as it’s accomplished with Vectorworks, and do not represent an attempt to accommodate an industry standard.
