OzCAD Australian Vectorworks Distributors

Education - School, College, University

The Education edition of Vectorworks is available for schools, colleges and universities at specially reduced prices. This version is cross platform – able to be installed on both Macintosh and Windows computers – and is supplied with on-line manuals, training and software DVDs.

The Education edition is Vectorworks Designer with Renderworks and contains all the tools and commands from Architect, Landmark and Spotlight. This means it can fulfill a broad range of curriculum requirements.

Files created with the Education version will have a watermark in the border at the top and bottom of the drawing. This watermark will not appear on drawings printed from the institution's network version, but is will appear if the drawing is printed from the student or teacher version.

The Education version comes with a network USB dongle (a small hardware protection device) which must be connected to a server or admin machine that is on the same network.

With a network dongle, you can install Vectorworks on any number of computers on the network (sub-nets are OK too), but the dongle will only let the quantity of licenses you have purchased run at one time. For more information or support on network dongles, please click here. There are no set purchasing quantities (such as a 30 pack). You just order the quantity of licenses you need, and the network dongle.

Single teacher copies are also available to teachers or lecturers working at institutions that have Vectorworks installed. These require with a USB dongle each.

Both network and teacher dongles can be reused for future versions, and so they only need to be purchased once.

Please call or email us if you require a firm quotation for your school, college or university. Upgrade pricing is available to institutions running older versions of Vectorworks.
