Equipped with the right applications, a computer can be of great help in virtually any domain of activity. When it comes to designing and precision, no other tool is as accurate as a computer. Moreover, specialized applications such as AutoCAD give you the possibility to design nearly anything ranging from art, to complex mechanical parts or even buildings.
Suitable for business environments and experienced users
After a decent amount of time spent installing the application on your system, you are ready to fire it up. Thanks to the office suite like interface, all of its features are cleverly organized in categories. At a first look, it looks easy enough to use, but the abundance of features it comes equipped with leaves room for second thoughts.
Create 2D and 3D objects
You can make use of basic geometrical shapes to define your objects, as well as draw custom ones. Needless to say that you can take advantage of a multitude of tools that aim to enhance precision. A grid can be enabled so that you can easily snap elements, as well as adding anchor points to fully customize shapes.
With a little imagination and patience on your behalf, nearly anything can be achieved. Available tools allow you to create 3D objects from scratch and have them fully enhanced with high-quality textures. A powerful navigation pane is put at your disposal so that you can carefully position the camera to get a clearer view of the area of interest.
Various export possibilities
Similar to a modern web browser, each project is displayed in its own tab. This comes in handy, especially for comparison views. Moreover, layouts and layers also play important roles, as it makes objects handling a little easier.
Sine the application is not the easiest to carry around, requiring a slightly sophisticated machine to properly run, there are several export options put at your disposal so that the projects itself can be moved around.
Aside from the application specific format, you can save as an image file of multiple types, PDF, FBX and a few more. Additionally, it can be sent via email, directly printed out on a sheet of paper, or even sent to a 3D printing service, if available.
To end with
All in all, AutoCAD remains one of the top applications used by professionals to achieve great precision with projects of nearly any type. It encourages usage with incredible offers for student licenses so you get acquainted with its abundance of features early on. A lot can be said about what it can and can't do, but the true surprise lies in discovering it step-by-step.
What is AutoCAD?
AutoCAD is a CAD program that allows users to create and edit 2D and 3D models. An engineer or designer can use AutoCAD to create a model of a building or any other structure, add lines, create faces, create and edit polygons, create dimension lines, and rotate, move, resize, copy, move, or delete objects in the model.
AutoCAD includes the ability to import files such as DWG and DXF formats, as well as 3D solid modeling, and wireframe drawing formats such as 3D SVG, OBJ, and IGES. A model can also be exported to different formats including PDF, AutoCAD DWG, or AutoCAD DXF.
AutoCAD and Other Types of CAD
AutoCAD can be used to create 2D drawings. This includes 2D drafting and 3D modeling. Drawings created in AutoCAD can then be printed or exported to file formats such as PDF, DWG, and DXF for viewing and editing.
AutoCAD is often used with other types of CAD programs such as MicroStation, Autodesk AutoCAD Plant 3D and AutoCAD Civil 3D. Autodesk has also developed AutoCAD for iOS, which is used to create 2D drawings.
There are many other types of commercial CAD programs, including those from other manufacturers, such as Dassault Systemes’ CATIA and SolidWorks.
Use AutoCAD to Create Drawings
With AutoCAD, you can create 2D drawings. When creating a drawing, you can choose to create a 2D sketch, a plot, or a project.
To create a 2D drawing, start by creating a new drawing, or open an existing drawing. A 2D drawing can include two kinds of objects: dimensions and annotation objects.
Dimensions are lines or other objects that define a boundary or set of boundaries of an area of a drawing. To create a drawing in AutoCAD, choose the Create New Drawing command from the File menu.
When you have created your drawing, you can choose to insert a dimension object into a drawing. The dimensions can include line, arc, or polyline types. The polyline type of dimension is often used to mark the perimeter of an area or an object, such as a 3D structure, within a 2D drawing.
AutoCAD LT – the entry-level version of AutoCAD. Released in 2006, it has fewer features than AutoCAD, lacks DXF support, and is not compatible with older versions of AutoCAD. It is sold by Autodesk for PC and Mac, and is available on the market for free on the PC and the Mac.
AutoCAD 2015 – the last version of AutoCAD that runs under Microsoft Windows Vista and Windows 7.
AutoCAD Architecture – a companion architecture and planning program.
AutoCAD Electrical – an integrated suite of electrical design tools.
AutoCAD MEP – an integrated suite of building information modeling (BIM) design tools for mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection.
AutoCAD Print – a user interface for clients to create and print professional drawings. It can also be used to produce prints from other software that use the same printer.
AutoCAD Revit – an integrated suite of building design tools for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems.
Revit MEP – an integrated suite of building information modeling (BIM) design tools for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems.
Revit Design Review – an integrated suite of building design tools for reviewing 2D and 3D drawings.
Revit Architecture – a suite of architectural design tools.
Revit Construction – an integrated suite of construction design tools.
Revit Structure – an integrated suite of building design tools for steel, concrete, and wood structures.
Revit Utilities – a set of modules that can be used by Revit users in a number of applications outside of Revit.
In addition to these products, Autodesk also sells subscriptions for AutoCAD LT, AutoCAD Architecture and Revit Architecture. AutoCAD LT subscribers can use their subscription on any computer that can run AutoCAD LT, and in turn can use all of the features of AutoCAD LT, which are all also available on AutoCAD Classic (formerly AutoCAD R13 or AutoCAD 12), except for restricted functionality. A subscription to Autodesk Architectural Desktop also allows for the use of AutoCAD Architecture, AutoCAD MEP and Revit MEP.
AutoCAD Architecture is also available as a standalone application.
AutoCAD LT is the non-pro version of AutoCAD, but is still used by many architects and engineers. The current version of AutoCAD LT is AutoCAD LT 2016.
Start the game and open the map.
