Where is it written that landscape design software has to be expensive or difficult to use? Certainly not at Vectorworks. We've designed Vectorworks Landmark with our users' input, so it is reasonable and easy, yet sophisticated. It features a short learning curve, advanced 2D and 3D site design capabilities, automatic schedules and reports, a vast plant database, a suite of building tools, free landscape and site symbol libraries, AutoCAD® compatibility and support for GIS files. It is a comprehensive package that lets you document and present your designs with efficiency and elegance. We put that in writing.

OzCAD produces a special version of Vectorworks Landmark called Landmark Australia, which is localised for Australian practice. It contains Australian libraries, additional tools and commands, along with high quality 2D and 3D entourage libraries for people, vehicles, trees, furniture, hatches, colour palettes, image fills and gradients. For more information, read the detailed descriptions below.
Australian Plant Database
The Australian Plant Database utility provides an comprehensive range of data on 1350 plants. This utility can be searched using complex search criteria and is designed to allow users to expand the number of entries and add information such as the projects where a particular plant has been used, or the local government areas to which the plant is indigenous. Each entry in the database is designed to fit onto an A4 page so you can easily provide clients with a series of print-outs containing detailed information about their proposed plant list.
The database is tightly integrated with Landmark and also has the ability to directly search Google Images or Wikipedia for additional plant information, which can then be easily transferred to the database.
Existing Tree Tool
This tool allows users to identify existing significant trees on their plans, then enter relevant information such as Latin and common names, height, spread, calliper, condition, SULE, significance and what action needs to be initiated.
Australian Colour Libraries
This command provides access to libraries of professional Colour Systems commonly used by Specifiers in Australia. Standard libraries include Dulux®, Taubmans, Porters, Murabond, Colorbond®, Laminex®, Concrete Colour Systems and Cabots®.
Coordinate Marker Tool
Allows a drawing to be setout with coordinates that refer to a user defined origin or datum. If datum changes, objects can be updated to display the new settings. Options include whether IDs are displayed (as in the example below), and whether X/Y or X/Y/Z values are shown.
Custom Dashed Line Tool
Useful for boundary lines, piping runs or electrical wiring, this tool is designed to draw straight sided polygons with edges comprising of dashed lines with a cross line or piece of text in the dash space. Once drawn, the polygon can be reshaped with the 2D Reshape tool.
Equal Dimension Tool
Replaces the numeric dimension value on a picked dimension with the text ‘EQ’.
This tool allows a much greater variety of handrail objects to be drawn as a single piece or as multiple mitred lengths at any angle. It includes a library of predefined types that include glass, wire, timber and aluminium.
For doing shadow diagrams and sun studies. The tool makes it much faster to set the sun position, can store an unlimited number of locations and also has the ability to view the model from the sun. You can also step though the times of the day in any view and watch how a shading device or other aspect of your building performs. Solar calculations can be done using solar time as well as clock time, removing ambiguity from shadow diagrams. As well, you can produce on-screen or QuickTime® solar animations viewed from the sun, providing a much faster way to assess solar access or to evaluate shading devices.
Entourage and Resource Libraries
- Additional hatch libraries
- Additional paving brick, vegetation, stonework and other materials image fills and textures
- Additional colour palette libraries
- Additional gradient fills
- Extensive and new 2D and 3D libraries for people, trees, cars, furniture, etc.
- New 3D tree and people image prop objects for rendering
Quick Building Tool
Produces simple block models that can be used for shadow diagrams, floor space calculations or any time you need one or more simple shaped buildings quickly. Buildings can have flat, hip or gabled roofs.
3D Tape Measure Tool
Quickly determine distances between points or objects in a 3D model using this new tool. Like its 2D counterpart, it provides a running total length as well as the length of the last segment drawn.
Title Block Tool & Issue Command
The VAA Title Block tool and VAA Revise Issue Print commands provide a complete and flexible system for adding title blocks to drawings, entering issue or revision notes, batch printing and creating or updating a comprehensive transmittal. These tools are designed to speed-up drawing management whilst maintaining more accurate and detailed revision and issue history for the full duration of a project.
In Vectorworks 2008, there are new options which include north points, drawing stamps and custom names for title block symbols.
AnimationWorks allows you to create complex camera or object animations entirely within Vectorworks, then save them as QuickTime movies which can be viewed by anyone who has QuickTime installed. Read more and see sample movies.
Creates simple or complex windows and doors which are fully editable parametric objects. It allows design and documentation to happen more quickly and provides increased control over component sizes, greater flexibility with door and window designs, better line weight and class control, and the ability to do corner and bay windows with a few clicks. Supports a much greater range of door and window styles for both residential and commercial construction, including parallel sliding door systems, louvred windows, sashless glass windows, pivot doors, glass doors, glass block windows, along with all other conventional door and window types.
WinDoor also includes a custom library of standard Australian doors and windows that can be added to or edited by the user, then used to replace or modify an existing object. With the latter option, it is possible to copy one, some or all attributes from a library item, then apply these to one, some or all WinDoor objects in the drawing. Other new options also include pivot, hopper and round windows, as well as overhead doors.
All WinDoor objects can report both glazing and ventilation areas and have additional data entered such as glass and frame type, screening, egress, compliance and so on.
