Powerful AutoCAD design features

AutoCAD® design features include 3D modeling and comprehensive graphics in a crisp, visual workspace. Build real-world environments with integrated modeling tools and enhanced reality computing tools.

  • Stunning Visual Experience New

    See the details in your designs more clearly with visual enhancements such as Line Fading. Readability is now enhanced with true curves instead of line segments. Minimize the need to undo an operation by using Command Preview, which lets you see the results of a command before you commit to it. Move and copy large selection sets more easily.

  • Coordination Model New

    Attach and view Navisworks and BIM 360 Glue models directly inside AutoCAD software. Reference the Navisworks model as you design to avoid potential conflicts. Take advantage of Navisworks’ vast file format support to bring models into AutoCAD from other applications.

  • Reality computing (enhanced)

    Orient your work more precisely with the point cloud. Maneuver between horizontal and vertical planes more quickly with Dynamic UCS. Snap to edges, intersections, corners, and centerlines to quickly create geometry using point cloud object snaps.

  • Online maps

    Access online maps (formerly live maps) directly inside the canvas. Capture online maps as static images and print them with your design overlaid, or create PDFs that include the geolocation map.

  • Surface Curve Extraction tool

    Extract isoline curves through a specified point on a surface or face of a solid to determine the contour lines of any shape. The tool displays a preview of the resulting spline before you pick the point. You can specify the direction of the isolines, either in the U or V direction.

  • Context-sensitive PressPull tool

    Extrude and offset curves, creating surfaces and solids. Use the Multiple option to select multiple objects within a single PressPull operation. You are no longer limited to clicking inside a bounded area: Now you can select 2D and 3D curves for a quick and easy PressPull operation.

  • 3D free-form design tools

    Generate design ideas in almost any form imaginable with AutoCAD design features. Push/pull faces, edges, and vertices to model complex shapes and add smooth surfaces. Solid, mesh, and surface modeling give you flexibility and control when designing in 3D. The navigation bar includes frequently used tools such as steering wheels, view cube, and show motion, as well as pan, zoom, and orbit.

  • Surface analysis

    Analyze the continuity, curvature, and draft of 3D solids and surfaces. The Zebra analysis projects stripes onto a 3D model to analyze surface continuity. The stripes display continuously only across tangent surfaces.

  • In-canvas viewport controls

    Use new viewport controls to change viewport settings, views, and visual styles directly on the viewport canvas.
