Powerful AutoCAD design features

Create 3D designs in almost any form imaginable. AutoCAD® software design features deliver 3D modeling and visualization functionality in a streamlined workspace. Build real-world environments with reality-capture and geolocation CAD design tools.

    Design

  • Online maps (enhanced)

    Access online maps—formerly live maps—directly inside the canvas. Now you can capture online maps as static images and print them with your design overlaid, or create PDFs that include the geolocation map.

  • Reality computing (enhanced)

    Reality computing lets you work with point cloud data directly in AutoCAD. The point cloud now behaves like any other design element inside AutoCAD, with the same flexibility and control. Enhanced point cloud functionality includes geolocation and the capability to display colors by elevation.

  • 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, add smooth surfaces, and more. Solid, mesh, and surface modeling give you flexibility and control when designing in 3D. The new 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

    New viewport controls enable you to change viewport settings, views, and visual styles directly on the viewport canvas.

  • 3D associative array

    Define arrayed objects when designing in 3D. Rectangular, polar, and path associative arrays enable you to arrange selected objects in 3D space. 

  • Editable UCS icon

    Select the UCS icon and use the multi-functional grips to change the UCS. You can move the origin and rotate it around the X, Y, or Z axis. Because the UCS icon lets you directly manipulate the UCS, you can align the icon with objects more easily—without having to access the UCS command.
