The new interface has a updated look and feel that improves the design process.
Work in a modern, aesthetically pleasing look similar to that found in many other professional and consumer products. The darker background makes fine lines, buttons, and text stand out better and helps to reduce eyestrain.
Save time and clicks by accessing drawing content directly from the ribbon.
To add a block to your design, for example, hover over the ribbon for a block insertion. You can see thumbnails of all the blocks in the Block gallery, and you can insert your selection right away, without having to move off your drawing into a dialog box. It’s intuitive, visual, and fast.
Quickly open new and existing drawings and access a large selection of design elements that help you start on a project.
Enhancements include the capability to use design feed on an intranet, as well as on through an Internet or cloud connection.
The design and the conversation happen in the same place, but when it's time to send your final drawing, you can choose whether the conversation should go along with it. Built-in tools in both eTransmit and File Save workflows strip the comments when the design and collaboration is over and it's time to deliver.
Access online maps—formerly live maps—directly inside the canvas. Now you can also capture maps as static images for printing.
The maps that were integral to your design can now be part of your final drawing. Now you can plot to paper or create PDFs that include the geolocation map.
Confidently share CAD files with TrustedDWG technology, which helps ensure the fidelity of your AutoCAD drawings.
