Getting the Most Out of AutoCAD 2016
Autodesk Technical Evangelist and Cadalyst columnist Lynn Allen takes you on a tour of the many AutoCAD 2016 productivity enhancements - Watch the recorded webinar
Design every detail with AutoCAD® software, one of the world’s leading CAD applications. Create stunning 2D and 3D designs with robust tools that can produce almost any shape imaginable. Share your work with confidence using TrustedDWG™ technology, the original and most accurate way to store and exchange design data. Speed detailing and documentation work with tools built to help increase efficiency and maximize productivity. Connect your workflow and collaborate with colleagues using integrated desktop, cloud, and mobile solutions. AutoCAD delivers the quality you can expect.
- Enhanced PDFs
Produce documents more quickly with smarter, smaller, and more powerful files. All text is searchable, and you can attach PDF files to your drawings for better performance.
- Smart Dimensioning
Automatically create appropriate measurements based on your drawing context. Pass the cursor over selected objects to get a preview of the dimension—before you create it.
- Stunning Visual Experience
See the details in your designs more clearly with visual enhancements such as Line Fading. Readability is now enhanced with true curves instead of line segments. Minimize the need to undo an operation by using Command Preview, which lets you see the results of a command before you commit to it. Move and copy large selection sets more easily.
- Coordination Model
Attach and view Navisworks and BIM 360 Glue models directly inside AutoCAD software. Reference the Navisworks model as you design to avoid potential conflicts. Take advantage of Navisworks’ vast file format support to bring models into AutoCAD from other applications.
- Sysvar Monitor
Prevent unwanted changes to your system settings. This feature alerts you to changes to your preferences that could affect your drafting work.
