Columbia, MD (November 20, 2019)—As part of the acquisition that was finalized in August 2019, global design and BIM software provider Vectorworks, Inc. brings ConnectCAD 2020 to market in conjunction with the Vectorworks 2020 Service Pack 2 release. From simple to complex, the ConnectCAD add-on to Vectorworks Spotlight and Designer allows AV system designers to lay out signal flows in an easy-to-read format.
“Since ConnectCAD is built on Vectorworks technology and available as an add-on for Spotlight and Designer, you can take advantage of the flexible and robust design and documentation capabilities that have made Spotlight the entertainment industry standard,” said Vectorworks CEO Dr. Biplab Sarkar. “With features like data visualization and bi-directional worksheets, along with an extensive manufacturer library and a customizable 2D/3D hybrid environment, you have everything you need to design with confidence.”
Moreover, collaboration among team members and project stakeholders has never been easier with this latest version of ConnectCAD. With ConnectCAD customers can:
- Create schematic drawings
- Effortlessly make changes throughout the iterative design process
- Diagram rack layouts

“At Vectorworks, I've found myself amongst a group of people that I can really communicate with, and we share a similar mindset and goals,” said Conrad Preen, ConnectCAD founder and now software engineer at Vectorworks. “The technical excellence of Vectorworks is important and has helped us grow immensely in our current development to get further towards what we would like the product to be. Plus, Vectorworks’ passion to expand the reach of the product is more than I could have ever hoped for.”
