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.
The app is a 2D drafting tool based on the widely used Inventor technology. It supports the entire drafting process, including 3D and surface construction. It allows users to create 2D drawings, project 2D drawings into a 3D model, and design a 3D model, then print it, plot and graph the design, or communicate with a 3D printer. The app can be installed and run on Windows operating systems. It is available in a Standard, Professional, and Advanced version. In 2019, Autodesk released an AutoCAD bundle with additional tools in addition to the standard AutoCAD.
AutoCAD was originally developed by Warren Martin, who was an engineer at Unisys, and he released AutoCAD to the public in December 1982. Its first version, “AutoCAD”, was originally available for the DEC PDP-11 and PDP-15 computer systems running OSF/1.
In 1993, Warren Martin left Autodesk and formed his own company, Rational Software, Inc. In 1995, Autodesk purchased Rational Software for $1.16 billion. Since then, Autodesk began to develop various design and drafting applications in its own offices. Today, Autodesk is one of the most popular companies on the planet, and Autodesk AutoCAD is the leading product in its CAD business.
Autodesk AutoCAD is an integrated software solution for 2D and 3D drafting and design, enabling users to quickly design, edit, view, project, and print information. It provides efficient 2D and 3D drafting, presentation, and publication, as well as rendering, color management, and other services. It is available in multiple versions including AutoCAD 2017, AutoCAD 2018, AutoCAD 2019, AutoCAD 2020 and various web applications.
The app is compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms. The free standard and professional versions of AutoCAD are available as a stand-alone app for desktop use, and a subscription to AutoCAD cloud is required for web access.
AutoCAD offers users drawing commands to enable them to create various types of 2D and 3D objects. These commands are grouped into four categories: drawing commands, object-drawing commands, annotation commands, and command-line drawing commands.
Automatically generates 2D drawing objects for
AutoCAD is designed to be a flexible tool, allowing users to configure how the software works and how it is used. It is easy to change the behavior of the application from one user mode to another, as needed. AutoCAD has a number of modes, including Insertion, Deflection, Rectification, Global Editing, Block Editing, which determine how the application behaves during a drawing session.
In addition to the standard main menu of operations, AutoCAD provides a set of tools designed for the particular types of drawings produced by the software. The tool groups can be altered from one user mode to another. For instance, in a drafting session, the designer can use the standard tools, such as AutoCAD’s Inventor-style blocks and 3D tools, to create an assembly drawing or an architectural drawing. When creating a mechanical drawing or an electrical engineering drawing, AutoCAD can use a library of symbols, such as typical parts, to speed the process of drawing the design. The tool groups can be configured to create different types of drawings, allowing the user to choose from among drafting, presentation, data entry, and other common drafting functions.
AutoCAD’s implementation of the Drawing Activity Charts enables the user to organize, review, and print drawings, and provides a means for recording the various stages of a drawing project. The system allows the user to insert progress and/or production charts with their drawings. This feature is generally not found in other CAD software.
AutoCAD can export several file formats, including AutoCAD DXF, DWG, PDF, DWF, DGN, DWF, IGES, XML, and PDF/A-1a. The document format is the native format used by the application for editing and viewing drawings, including hidden elements. The user can export drawings to a variety of file formats, including Postscript, EPS, XREF, PDF, Print, DWF, DXF, DGN, IGES, and VDA. There is also a PDF printer which can convert from the DXF format to any of the supported formats, although there is no output from this mode.
AutoCAD’s earliest releases followed the same series numbering system as the first releases of the Unigraphics family of products. The first release of AutoCAD, which was limited to the drafting, presentation, and drawing modes, was Unigraphics 2D Drafting, published in 1981. Unigraphics 2D was not
