Aside from its use as a CAD tool, AutoCAD can be used to create other kinds of 2D and 3D objects such as technical drawing, architectural, mechanical, and electrical design.
AutoCAD includes three user-interface modes: drafting, engineering, and viewing. Drafting is the conventional mode in which the user can draw shapes or lines on the screen and manipulate the layout of drawings. Engineering is a command-line mode for editing objects and a 2D-graphics editor called «Draw.» Viewing is a mode to view and annotate existing drawings and drawing objects.

Blender: Blender is a free 3D computer graphics application, designed to work with any kind of 3D modeling software. It can import and export the 3D model and scenes from other packages. Blender can also be used for animation and video editing.
3ds Max: 3ds Max is a powerful three-dimensional computer graphics program that has been used as a film-making tool since its release in 1990. It can import and export a variety of 3D models including 3D animation data and 3D image data.
Maya: Maya is a 3D computer graphics application from PTC, formerly known as Pixar.
Softimage: An advanced 3D computer graphics application from Siemens PLM Software, which allows the modeling, simulation, animation and rendering of 3D objects and scenes.
In software engineering, visualization scripting refers to techniques for writing visual script to draw in-browser images, such as for web-based computer games, video animation and other graphics-intensive applications.
Scripts are computer programs that are created as code in a programming language. This code is often written using a text editor. In contrast, visual scripting consists of writing a script that can actually draw things on a computer screen. It is also sometimes referred to as visual programming.
Sometimes, when a script can accomplish a task more quickly than a conventional code, or when programmers cannot translate the script easily to the source code, visual scripts are used. Developers can write the script using a graphical software authoring tool, which can include object linking and embedding. Examples of authoring tools include Gamebryo, Authorware and Adobe Flash.
Other examples of visual scripting include:
HTML-based video animation and game
Open Autocad and create a new drawing. In this case, I will create a simple box.
I am choosing to save in «*.dwg» format.
Select «File» and then «Save»
Browse to the location where you have saved the «*.dwg» file
In the «Save as» field, enter «box2.dwg» and then click «Save»
Click «OK» and wait for a short while for Autocad to save the file.
Import the saved «box2.dwg» file into Autocad.
Open the «Import» dialog box.
Click the «Import» button and browse to the location where you saved the «*.dwg» file
Select the «box2.dwg» file and click the «Open» button.
Make sure that the Autocad project option is set to «Save to project» and click OK.
Other than doing all this, you can also get the password, if you have physical access to the computer.
New Detroit mayor hears outcry on plea deal
Posted: 11:57 AM, Nov 02, 2016
DETROIT — Detroit’s newly-elected mayor and the public’s top prosecutor want you to know something about the conviction and plea agreement of the man who became Detroit’s first white mayor in nearly two decades: They think it’s a travesty.
The Flint-area judge who presided over Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy’s plea deal with former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick heard the public’s outrage on Friday. Just hours after Kilpatrick was sentenced to 28 years in prison, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina rejected Worthy’s sentencing recommendation and offered Kilpatrick the chance to enter a blind plea instead.
«I understand people are upset about this situation. I understand why people are upset about this situation,» she said, according to The Associated Press.
Kilpatrick, 45, pleaded guilty in June to misconduct and conspiracy charges, and he was given a sentence of 28 years in prison.
In August, Worthy agreed to a plea deal with Kilpatrick for one count of obstruction of justice for lying to a grand jury and one count of lying to a judge about a $184,000 payment
Automatically assist you in creating details, proportions, and dimension details. Provide suggestions for more detailed edits that can be expanded into a fully editable drawing. (video: 2:37 min.)
AutoCAD 2023 now supports importing from a wide variety of drawing formats, including:
Microsoft Visio (Excel, Word, PowerPoint, PDF, DOCX, RTF, etc.)
Raster graphics formats (JPEG, PNG, GIF, etc.)
Vector graphics formats (DXF, DWG, etc.)
Collage files (images or vector graphics with a common source)
Interactive drawing files (iText, MS Access, Google Doc, etc.)
3D objects (3DS, OBJ, etc.)
Encapsulated PostScript (EPS)
Standard engineering files (g-code, NC-files, etc.)
Text and Text Wrapping:
Lengthen existing text, which can wrap onto multiple lines, to form new, multiline text. New text can also be defined within existing text, rather than creating new text. (video: 1:57 min.)
Create text with a wide variety of text styles and font properties:
Styled text: Use text styles to create more aesthetically pleasing types of text, such as italic, bold, and color.
Custom fonts: Let you define your own fonts for stylized text, with over 300+ choices.
Right-to-left (RTL) text: Support writing text that flows from right to left, rather than the usual left-to-right direction.
Drop shadows: Get the look of shadows in your text by manipulating the effects in the Appearance palette, or by drawing shadows in the drawing canvas.
Preview Text: A free application that can open and display your text in any file format, and even edit it if you have the right software.
New text-formatting options are available in the Fonts and Wrapping dialog box, so you can define additional text styles and improve readability of your text.
Define new text style choices that are based on any existing style:
Styles can be defined
