Transoft Solutions and Vectorworks partnership offers vehicle swept path analysis

Vectorworks 2019 features a new partnership integration with AutoTurn online for analyzing vehicle swept paths.

Richmond, B.C. — Transoft Solutions Inc.’s AutoTURN technology was introduced within the recently released Vectorworks 2019 design and BIM solution. The integration of AutoTURN Online within Vectorworks translates to faster and simpler workflows for architects and designers who need to assess vehicle maneuvers within parking lots, garages, loading bays, driveways and other projects.

“We’re proud to partner with Transoft Solutions to make it simple to evaluate vehicle access on any project,” said Dr. Biplab Sarkar, CEO of Vectorworks Inc. “In the past, evaluating whether a design can accommodate the turning paths of vehicles was a time-consuming trial-and-error process. But now, Vectorworks customers have direct access to an excellent tool that takes the guesswork out of this task. Now, with AutoTURN Online featured within our solution, customers can simply upload a design, pick a vehicle, perform a simulation and export the results back into their project file from within the Vectorworks session.”

The collaboration between the two long-standing leaders within the AEC space marks a significant milestone for each and will enable design professionals to work with increased confidence and enhanced productivity across transportation projects large and small.

“It has been a great experience working with Vectorworks on making AutoTURN Online work seamlessly with their platform,” added Steven Chan, VP of Simulation at Transoft Solutions. “We believe our swept path analysis technology will be very beneficial to designers for the evaluation of vehicle turning maneuvers and operations as it has been proven and widely adopted by civil engineers from around the world.”
