Nemetschek North America today released a free, downloadable VectorWorks Viewer application that has been updated for VectorWorks 12. The Viewer enables those who do not own the program to view and print projects created in VectorWorks Fundamentals, VectorWorks Architect, VectorWorks Landmark, VectorWorks Spotlight, VectorWorks Machine Design, and VectorWorks Designer.

"The Viewer for VectorWorks 12 enables collaboration between designers and clients during the creative process, as well as the ability to print projects created using VectorWorks," explains Paul Pharr, chief technology officer with Nemetschek North America.

The Viewer lets an individual open a VectorWorks file and make use of the viewing tools and commands, such as the Pan and Zoom tools. As the Viewer can be used by anyone who does not own VectorWorks, this not only benefits clients, but it also allows service bureaus to print VectorWorks files for their customers.
