To update your language, simply select your preferred language in the Application Preferences dialog, and restart AutoCAD for Mac to see the change. With AutoCAD for Mac, the dark theme has a modern dark blue interface designed to work with recent icon improvements. This fresh new look provides optimum contrast without distracting from the drawing area, where your focus should be. Rather than manually defining each measurement, you can now measure 2D drawings simply by hovering your mouse. Dimensions, distances, and angles are dynamically displayed as you move your mouse over and between objects. You can simply drag and drop blocks into the drawing or double-click from Current Drawing, Recent, or Favorites tabs.
Subscribe to AutoCAD and get access to specialized toolsets, an all-new web app, a mobile app, new features, and more. Speed up your work with specialized features and libraries for mechanical design, architecture, 3D mapping, and more; enjoy greater mobility with the new web and mobile apps; and take advantage of new features and performance enhancements, included with new subscriptions to AutoCAD including specialized toolsets, available starting today, March 22, Increase Productivity With Specialized Toolsets With access to 7 specialized toolsets, subscribers have more than , intelligent objects, styles, parts, features, and symbols to choose from when drawing.
Designers can automate floorplans; quickly draw piping, plant equipment, or electrical panel layouts; incorporate GIS data into the planning process; edit scanned drawings and convert raster images into DWG objects all while working in a familiar AutoCAD interface. The toolsets now included in AutoCAD offer intelligent features that will help users work faster and be more efficient.
Now imagine how productive you could be with all of the industry-specific toolsets at your fingertips. When you subscribe to AutoCAD , you will gain access to the following toolsets: Architecture Toolset: Mechanical Toolset: Electrical Toolset: MEP Toolset: Plant 3D Toolset: Map 3D Toolset: Access spatial data stored in files, databases, and web services, and aggregate it with your AutoCAD design data.
Raster Design Toolset: Use raster to vector tools to help you edit scanned drawings and convert raster images into DWG objects. And there is nothing to download or install. You can see the dimension, the contrast, the color, just all the depths to be seen on a 2D drawing. The resolution is just excellent. Quickly view changes, see clashes, review constructability, and more. And there is no need to worry about missing something, turning revision clouds on will further highlight the changes, and you can systematically cycle through each one to make sure every detail is accounted for.
Avoid the cumbersome commonly used workflow of publishing and emailing designs via DWF or PDF files; instead, a viewable file is created in AutoCAD, and circulated via a shareable link that can be viewed and commented on in the browser of any device with internet access.
And this year, comments that collaborators make on the shared link appear right back in your AutoCAD desktop product.
Operations that typically require AutoCAD to redraw or regenerate 2D graphics like changing draw order, zooming, panning, and changing layer properties, particularly in large drawings or drawings with raster images are now up to twice as fast.
New controls in the Graphics Performance dialog box let you easily configure the behavior of 2D graphics performance. These icons provide a better visual experience when using AutoCAD, especially on a high-resolution monitor. The new releases even dynamically match icon sizes to your monitor resolution or pixel density. Current subscriber or maintenance plan customer? Find out what this means for you.
