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.
An AutoCAD drawing.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
AutoCAD is a commercial CAD program which is both freeware and a commercial product. It is available for Microsoft Windows, MacOS, Linux, and iOS.
History [ edit ]
AutoCAD is part of a family of software products developed and marketed by Autodesk. All products are based on a common ‘raster’ graphics file format, which provides dynamic, interactive rendering of 3D drawings.
First released in 1982, AutoCAD version 2 was a DOS-based Windows-only desktop application for use in the office. The first AutoCAD for the Apple Macintosh was released in 1986, and AutoCAD Release 1 was based on the earlier version 2 release.
AutoCAD Release 2 was released in 1992 as a combined Windows-only desktop app and the first AutoCAD version compatible with Linux and Macintosh computers. It was the first release of AutoCAD that ran on an object-oriented design. Later releases of AutoCAD, such as Release 3, were fully object-oriented, meaning that the program ran as a single process in the background on a PC. AutoCAD Release 3 was also the first AutoCAD product to incorporate the idea of ‘persistence’, or saving the object state after the program is closed. This allowed the drawing to be recalled in the same condition after the user had closed the application. In 2002, AutoCAD Release 4 was a major update to the product and featured 2D and 3D wireframe graphics.
AutoCAD Release 5 was released in 2005 and features a new user interface that focuses on ease of use. It also supported CAD styles and enabled the user to save drawings with specific settings. AutoCAD Release 5 also incorporated a completely new user interface called ‘The AutoCAD Brain’.
AutoCAD 2008 was introduced in 2008, and included the ability to remotely connect to other users’ computers and control their work. It was the first release of AutoCAD that did not require a perpetual license.
In 2012, Autodesk released AutoCAD 2013. It introduced the ribbon interface and the ability to annotate drawings. Annotation includes such options as using an image from the user’s computer, creating a custom image with a bitmap editor or vector graphics, and dynamically adjusting the size and shape of the image.
On October 22, 2016, Autodesk announced a new release of Auto
Data exchange formats
AutoCAD Crack and other products from Autodesk exchange data and files through the DXF (Drawing Exchange Format) standard, which is based on ASCII-based text and on the DGN (Drawing) format.
The drawings in AutoCAD Crack For Windows are stored in a database which can be extended through plugins, and which is accessible through scripting (FASTScript). FASTScript is a domain specific language that is usable for all applications from AutoCAD. The scripts are stored in FASTScript files which can be read into AutoCAD and then stored in the database. The user may also design and edit a script and write a FASTScript file to be used by AutoCAD. FASTScript allows creating templates for all common tasks.
User-defined variables can be used in FASTScript and can be saved for further use in other scripts.
Multi-layer publishing and rendering
Starting with AutoCAD 2012, the interface is multi-layered, and can be designed with the help of advanced GUI tools such as smart rulers, hot-spots, ribbon bars, etc. The menus of all these interface parts are stored on the right-side of the interface; most of the tools are accessed through a context-sensitive dropdown menu, just by clicking on a corresponding icon, or by choosing a function from the menu displayed in the ribbon bar. For example, the top right menu of the graphics window has commands to adjust the color of the lines in the graphics window.
AutoCAD uses the MELP language. AutoCAD has a MELP API, which can be used to create macros and automate certain tasks in AutoCAD. When creating a macro, the user can use variables to reference the objects or to show dialog boxes. MELP provides visual programming in 3D, and allows the creation of parametric functions, and it is possible to use different programming languages. AutoCAD 2010 introduced the Visual LISP programming language.
AutoCAD supports the Structured CAD Application (.sca) language, which is used to describe drawing entities and their relationships to other drawing entities.
AutoCAD 2016 and later versions have a 2D drawing toolkit including the pen, lines, rectangles, and circles (for drafting). The pen tool is used for creating freehand lines, while the freehand tool is used for creating
