  • Stunning Visual Experience New

    STANDARD, PREMIUM, ULTIMATE

    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.

  • Smart Dimensioning New

    STANDARD, PREMIUM, ULTIMATE

    Automatically create appropriate measurements based on your drawing context. Pass the cursor over selected objects to get a preview of the dimension—before you create it.

  • Enhanced PDFs New

    STANDARD, PREMIUM, ULTIMATE

    Produce documents more quickly with smarter, smaller, more powerful files. All text is searchable, and you can attach PDF files to your drawings for better performance.

    Prevent unwanted changes to your system settings. This feature alerts you to changes to your preferences that could affect your drafting work.
