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.
This discussion is only for users of AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT and how to use the AI (Automatic Interpreter) macro language to write macros. This does not apply to AutoCAD LT Intergraph users, as the use of macros is prohibited on that product.
AutoCAD is an extremely powerful drafting and design software application for the CAD and drafting community. It is widely recognized as the industry standard for creating and editing drawing sheets, block diagrams, and other graphics and drafting documents. It is the only desktop CAD that is free to use by students and hobbyists.
The main advantages of AutoCAD are:
AutoCAD is constantly evolving and improving, creating new features and improving old ones.
The software runs on a variety of computer operating systems and uses a graphical user interface (GUI) that is widely regarded as the best in the business. It has made the transition from MS DOS to Windows and from DOS to Unix systems.
The interface is easy to use, with built-in help. AutoCAD is designed with the beginner in mind, to help him or her learn how to use the software and design effectively. It’s not a complex application, just a very powerful one.
AutoCAD is loaded with powerful tools that allow you to create an unlimited number of objects and move them as you need. It is very simple to create your own custom blocks that can be placed on your drawing page.
AutoCAD also provides an advanced snap, control, and constraint system. For example, you can tell AutoCAD exactly where a block or a line should be placed, how it should be oriented, and whether it should be visible or hidden.
AutoCAD is designed to run on all popular computer platforms, from a PC to Mac to Windows and Unix. AutoCAD is released under the GNU General Public License version 2 (GPLv2) and has a user interface that is the same on all platforms.
OpenGL is a versatile and cross-platform 2D and 3D graphics API that enables you to take full advantage of a wide variety of available hardware features. The API is designed to draw graphics that look good and are easy to animate.
The program provides a simple and powerful graphical editing environment with 2D drawing tools for creating vector-based drawings, and 3D modeling tools for creating and editing 3D solids. You can use all the tools in a 2D context
AutoCAD Cloud Services: Autodesk makes AutoCAD subscription cloud services for AutoCAD users (Autodesk Design Review, AutoCAD 360°, AutoCAD Mobile, AutoCAD 360 Mobile and AutoCAD Mobile 360 Design app) and use partners (Siemens, SaviGroup, Nedap and Isaa). These services are provided by Autodesk’s subsidiary Autodesk Labs.
AutoCAD 360° and AutoCAD 360 Mobile: Both solutions have an iOS app, which provides an iOS version of AutoCAD Mobile. This is not a version of AutoCAD, but instead an application that combines the functionality of AutoCAD Mobile and AutoCAD 360°.
Training and education
Autodesk offers a learning management system that allows users to find AutoCAD training and certifications through a searchable catalog.
In 2016, Autodesk launched Autodesk University, which provides free online training videos, webcasts, and classroom courses.
Upon its introduction in 1992, the market reacted with confusion and skepticism: “Is it a CAD program?” “What is it?” “What is that?” Despite the interest, and to the chagrin of its competitors, AutoCAD has been praised for its extensive design capabilities, powerful features, and the fact that it runs on all major Windows platforms. In its early days, the product was also criticized because it was not immediately available on the Macintosh platform. Since then, the Macintosh version has been one of the best-selling applications, with over 15 million copies sold. Although it is most often used for CAD, AutoCAD can be used for a variety of other applications.
AutoCAD has won a number of awards, including a special “Peer Award” in 1992 from the Autodesk Alumni Society, and an “Editors’ Choice” award for “Best Software Development” in PC World magazine in 1994.
Users of AutoCAD often have reported having a memory leak on Windows 2000. An automated memory leak test using a script that calls certain functions many times caused a memory leak on the affected systems. This problem was fixed in later versions of AutoCAD.

Goa: 2019 Elections May Be Final Round for Willing Willows and Nandees
(Last Updated On: May 23, 2019)
Those who love to call himself a believer of the Power of the Vote, is a politician who do the same. And that’s why in the eleventh hour of a battle they call a war, Willows with the help of traditional leaders are looking for votes in Nandy Island’s Wankhede and Nandees.
The elections in Goa are only a few days away, and despite the non-existence of Congress in the list of political parties, many who have deserted the party are still looking for the place they can vote for.
Expelled from the Congress, young and middle aged men and women decided to form a new party with a name as representative of the people, the Willows. The party is looking for a place of business.
“At one place and another, our last party was disqualified for a long time. But we have spent a huge amount of money on advertisements, and now we need to work to get a spot for our candidate. The place where we will find the
Support for Adobe PDF:
Use the Adobe PDF Export format (PDF/A-2). PDF/A-2 is a widely adopted standard that enables digital documents to be preserved and shared, even when unaccessible. (video: 2:34 min.)
Enhancements to the Panning Camera:
Pan and zoom into the drawing, and easily locate objects with arrows, to see them in context. (video: 1:17 min.)
New Ribbon Design:
The ribbon design has been updated to improve its readability and reduce the number of toolbars. The change is significant, as more than 40% of active users access the ribbon. (video: 1:16 min.)
Support for Dynamic Data Masking:
Autodesk has partnered with Spotfire, Autodesk’s Business Intelligence (BI) partner, to enhance the ability to work with data masking. (video: 1:12 min.)
The dynamic data mask is now capable of removing dimensions that have been added by a user, saving time and avoiding the need to re-enter dimensions from scratch.
