!Restored: Vectorworks 2009

Aaron Bourgoin

Has anyone on this forum seen Vectorworks 2009 - hands on and in the wild, as it were.

What I'm interested in is the adoption or licensing of the Parasolids engine for 3D. Apart from snappier graphics, does it really do anything to bolster VW's claim to being a BIM application.

Another question: Can the Parasolids engine produce reusable, parametric, 3D objects by itself?

How would a GDL-based wall and the Tool used to create it differ from the VW Parasolids-based Wall tool.

My admittedly naive view is that PS is a powerful modeling platform, but that the intelligence behind a M-CAD modeling platform using it as an engine relies on other programming do the lifting. Is Parasolids a shape engine? Or something more as well?
