Program information

Program name: Vectorworks 2020 Vectorworks 2020 (Scientific)

Vectorworks is a 3D design software for modeling, extensive 2D drafting and more. While AutoCAD is the most suitable package for structural, large-scale design, Vectorworks is a good for drafting/illustrating/rendering. However it is limited in its design to cater to projects on a relatively smaller scale.
