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.
It is used by thousands of professionals in the engineering, architecture, construction, architecture, manufacturing, animation, video game and others, as a design and documentation tool. AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT are used in the film and television industry. AutoCAD LT allows you to share your drawing with other users.
AutoCAD is the most successful CAD application in history, with over 85% of the CAD market.
The current version of AutoCAD is AutoCAD 2017, released in September 2017. The previous version was AutoCAD 2015. AutoCAD 2019 was released in October 2019.
Your account is the core to all AutoCAD functionality. When you create a new AutoCAD account, you can only use a trial version of AutoCAD. After the expiration of the trial period, you can use the full version of AutoCAD and pay for the license. If you lose your license, you can still use your trial account, but the trial version of AutoCAD is disabled. You can upgrade your license as long as it is valid.
The features included in AutoCAD are limited to the ones that are considered necessary for professional CAD drafting. They include the ability to import and export DWG, DXF and JPG files, print and embed vector graphics. For a brief list of the features of AutoCAD, see Comparison of CAD programs.
AutoCAD AutoCAD features The most important features of AutoCAD are:
AutoCAD is free to use as long as you own AutoCAD itself. You can get AutoCAD for free and use the trial version for 14 days. After that, you must buy AutoCAD in order to continue using the software. AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT are available in several versions. The AutoCAD software family contains the full version of AutoCAD, the Standard version and the LT version. There are also mobile and web versions of AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT. Autodesk recommends AutoCAD 2017 as the software version. You can install AutoCAD on your computer or choose AutoCAD LT if you prefer to use a license on a server. You may also need to buy other software to be able to use the full version of AutoCAD. AutoCAD enables users to save DWG files on the local hard drive. You may use these files to export them to other CAD programs. This feature is usually only available to
The following 3D products, technology and features are available in AutoCAD:
3D ANSI CAD, allows users to import and export 3D drawings. 3D CAD includes enhanced functions, such as viewports, dynamic/static shading, and animation, as well as other advanced 3D editing and design tools. There are also new features available for industry partners including components, surfaces, entities, constraints, and automatic collimation.
AutoCAD 3D modeling and documentation
AutoCAD 3D features 3D modeling, documentation and reverse engineering tools. The new version offers Reverse engineering technology that lets users to extract 3D information from a 2D CAD drawing.
Partis (2016–2018) was a product suite by Autodesk. With this tool, AutoCAD is able to create and print 3D models. While Partis is only available as a licensed software product, it is an Autodesk Core Data product which is preinstalled on many Autodesk products, including Autodesk Inventor and AutoCAD LT.
Partis provides a solution for rapid prototyping and manufacturing. Autodesk’s 3D Manufacturing product, ReMake, is based on the same core technology. It was initially available for the 2009 launch of the new AutoCAD LT, and the 2011 launch of Inventor, but was removed from the latter product in 2014, and from the former in 2016.
Reverse Engineering technology: Extract 3D information from a 2D CAD drawing and print 3D models from the extracted data.
ANSI CAD: Create a 3D model directly from a DXF, DWG, DGN, or a PDF file
For AutoCAD LT users, ReMake automatically converts model information created in Partis into the DXF format.
When importing Vray model files, it automatically detects what vray material is in the file, and converts the material to an appropriate CAD model.
For AutoCAD LT users, ReMake automatically converts model information created in Partis into the DWG format.
Reads DWG, DXF, and IGES format files. Aurora can create workorders or report a CAD file if you’re not already in the project or task.

Category:AutodeskYouTube Red, YouTube Premium, YouTube Music and YouTube Kids are all great additions to Google’s vast library of streaming services, but one of the most exciting, yet slightly confusing, additions to the line-up is YouTube Gaming.
I tried the service out on a few occasions over the weekend and while it’s still not entirely clear what it is, I’m intrigued.
The first time I turned it on it asked if I wanted to download the app and keep the service to myself, or install it on my phone. I chose the former.
From there I was presented with a menu of games that were running, as well as a list of popular channels.
So far so good, and I was getting excited.
A problem appeared, however.
Notably on this occasion the YouTube Gaming app was also installed. You can’t install two apps of the same name on Android and after a while of fiddling, I had to cancel both apps and start again.
That doesn’t sound all that bad, but what happened next was a bit concerning.
The following morning, I went back to the app, only to be greeted with a message that YouTube Gaming was stopped.
After some clicking I got the option to stop it from restarting at regular intervals, and I can now live with that if it’s going to happen. But it has got me wondering: is YouTube Gaming going to make its debut in the UK?
Because we’ve been able to test out the service in the US, but it hasn’t yet hit these shores.
The same questions that have arisen about the music service and the standalone subscription video service can be asked of YouTube Gaming: what exactly is it?
When does it launch here? Will it be free to

PCL Polyline Add-On:
CAD to STL, SolidWorks to Autodesk’s Converter, and more. (video: 1:36 min.)
When you create your own CAD format, as a developer, you need to define what your format is about. Our new PCL Polyline Add-On, available for free download, will help you answer this question in an automated way. Polyline-based CAD formats are ideal for representing polylines, extrusion, and other geometric primitives in 3D, but they also require less storage than vector formats. PCL Polyline Add-On supports the import and export of your own format, as well as the import and export of three popular Polyline-based formats.
