As we approach the launch of Vectorworks 2023 this September, it has been officially announced that Vectorworks will continue offering monthly and annual subscriptions, while retiring the option to purchase new perpetual licences beginning 1st January 2023.
This change will provide all Vectorworks customers with access to a more stable product by increasing the frequency of updates and consistent quality throughout each version.
Additionally, subscriptions will be enhanced to include all the same premium benefits of Vectorworks Service Select – at no additional cost – granting access to additional product library content, exclusive training, more Cloud Service storage, and cloud rendering.
I Have an Active Service Select Membership
These upcoming changes do not affect the terms or status of any existing Service Select agreement. As long as you maintain your licence(s) under Service Select, you will be able to continue to renew your agreement annually and enjoy the same benefits you do today, including access to new software releases.
While you will continue to have access to your perpetual licences after January 1st, your Service Select membership ensures that you can continue to enjoy the benefits that you do today, including upgrades to the current version as they are released. If you cancel your membership after January 1st, you will not be able to resume it in the future and will need to transition your perpetual licence to a subscription to access new software releases.
