CheckOut makes changes outside of the project structure to avoid frequent, unnecessary xref change notifications.
CheckOut also helps prevent team members from reacting to incomplete temporary changes or tests. No one else can view your changes until the file is checked back into the project structure.
When you CheckIn a drawing, it is saved automatically. Team members will be notified of the updated version.
Users can add comments to a new file upon CheckIn to ensure team members clearly understand the changes. With automatic saving of multiple backup versions, you can also quickly return to a previous state of a drawing.
Enhanced documentation features help you create, rationalize, and document 2D views.
Create 3D models in AutoCAD MEP design software and convert them to 2D for documentation needs. Utilize improvements in the command line with the ability to auto-complete and differentiate commands and system variables. Improve the appearance of your documentation with access to a diverse palette of fonts and colors. Improve drafting and modeling productivity with associative arrays improvements.
Quickly search for and access design files, objects, and content from within AutoCAD MEP design software with AutoCAD Content Explorer.
Easily search local and network drives for files containing content and objects to use within the design environment. This allows for more consistent company and industry standards, as well as real-world content.
Individually convert or batch-convert single or multiple AutoCAD blocks, MvBlocks, or MvParts to a device or schematic symbol.
Extrude standard 2D blocks to create a 3D solid, and then add connectors to create AutoCAD MEP content for your mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) designs. In addition, convert your AutoCAD blocks to orthographic symbols, as well as isometric symbols to facilitate your schematic design documentation.
Manage project drawings more easily by creating coordinated views based on MEP design parameters.
Create and manage project drawing sheet sets for all MEP construction documents. MEP design team members can access a centralized project directory of the most current documents, from project templates to sections and elevations.
