Extend the power of AutoCAD with a collection of productivity tools.
Create realistic 3D models of your design using a combination of solid, surface, and mesh modeling tools.
3D navigation (orbit, ViewCube, wheel)
Use 3D viewing and navigation tools to orbit, swivel, walk, and fly around a 3D model to showcase your design.
Apply visual styles to control the display of edges, lighting, and shading of your 3D model.
Create section planes to display cross-sectional views through solids, surfaces, meshes, or regions.
Apply lighting and materials to give your 3D models a realistic appearance and to help communicate your designs.
Attach point cloud files acquired by 3D laser scanners or other technologies to use as a starting point for your designs.
Generate 2D drawings including base, projected, section, and detail views from 3D models.
Print Studio provides the tools needed to prepare models for supported 3D printers and materials.
Share and reuse data from PDF files by importing, exporting, or attaching them as underlays.
Share and reuse data from DGN files by importing, exporting, or attaching them as underlays.
Attach DWG files to your current drawing as externally referenced files.
Attach image files to your current drawing as externally referenced files.
View, access, manage, and plot multiple drawings as sheet sets.
Model references and import
Attach Navisworks models as underlays to your drawings, and import models from other applications.
Geographic location and online maps
Insert geographic location information into a drawing, and display a map in the drawing from an online map service.
TrustedDWG™ technology lets you know of a possible incompatibility when a file was not last saved by an Autodesk software.
Customize the user interface to improve accessibility and reduce the number of steps for frequent tasks.
Specify security restrictions for running executables in AutoCAD to help protect against malicious executable code.
Record commands and input values that can be played back as an action macro.
Multi-user (network) license sharing
Pool licenses on a server to reduce costs when not all licenses are in use at the same time.
System variable monitor
Monitor current system variables against a preferred list of values. Notification balloons alert you of deviations.
CAD standards checker
Define and monitor CAD standards to maintain consistent styles for layers, linetypes, text, and dimensions.
