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.
In June 2011, Autodesk released AutoCAD LT for Windows, a low-cost entry-level version of AutoCAD, priced at US$299. AutoCAD LT allows users to draw a two-dimensional (2D) sketch or a three-dimensional (3D) model. Also, it features simpler drawing commands than the full version, which is released as AutoCAD Professional or as a part of AutoCAD Architecture & Design. A smaller version of AutoCAD named AutoCAD Essentials is targeted at the home user or school students. AutoCAD LT is targeted at the DIY market and students.
AutoCAD in India
Autodesk, Inc. created Autodesk Animation Guru (previously known as Autodesk Animator) for the Indian market in early 2012. The tool is designed to create animation clips and integrate with AutoCAD.
In April 2011, Autodesk acquired BIM.com (formerly BIMobject.com). BIM.com was an Indian e-learning company. Its website contained courses for students at the Engineering, Architecture, Civil Engineering and other institutions. AutoCAD, Civil 3D, Inventor, ArchiCAD, DesignSpark, and other Autodesk tools and BIM-based software are available for India.
In October 2013, Autodesk acquired FARO Technologies.
At the core of Autodesk products lies a toolset that facilitates the transfer of designs from the mind to the computer screen, or from the computer screen to the workshop. The most common method is drawing. But, Autodesk products are used for creating documentation, animation, video, rendering, cloud computing, and more.
Originally developed as a desktop CAD application, AutoCAD is based on the idea that drawing is the most fundamental skill needed for designing. When first introduced, AutoCAD was designed to operate on desktop computers, which then became common.
With the advent of tablet computers and smartphones, AutoCAD and other Autodesk products have been ported to tablets and smartphones, and have even made it onto the Apple App Store. AutoCAD is available for iOS, Android, Windows, and Mac. Autodesk products are now available on most major mobile platforms, including Windows, iOS, Android, and WebOS.
When drafting a design
As part of the military specification for drawing creation, JOM II, the Cracked AutoCAD With Keygen architecture was adopted as the core framework and extension capabilities were added to allow enhancement to user requirements. The specification was later superseded by JOM 3.
AutoCAD supports a variety of shape cutting options and commands. Options include making the cut perpendicular, horizontal, or any angle relative to the edge. The cut can be removed, or the shape can be mirrored. Operations can be performed in detail mode or in a single operation. A cut can have a hole created, and a sketch based on the cut can be drawn. Commands include the ability to cut along a specific edge.
The Shape Painter allows the user to interactively move a corner point of an existing shape to a new location. There is also an option to delete the existing shape and create a new shape. The coordinates of the point can be adjusted to define the edge or vertex of the shape being created.
AutoCAD supports a variety of shapes that can be drawn and manipulated: lines, arcs, circles, ellipses, polygons, splines, freeform, and beams and pipes. Polylines are collections of connected lines.
Parts and Assembly
Parts and Assembly allows the drawing of a generic assembly consisting of a number of standard parts, including hinges, bolt heads, rivets, spring clips, etc. Parts can be connected to each other, based on a variety of criteria, such as simple distance or angle, and on standard settings for length, spacing, etc.
AutoCAD supports a variety of options for drawing graphics and adding mathematical formulas: line, gradient, centerline, marker, arc, ellipse, diamond, and polygon. Addition of colors, gradients and markers may require an installer to register.
AutoCAD supports the printing of photographs and images of any format (jpeg, bmp, tif, etc.) and allows the background and image to be separated into layers.
