  • Smart centerlines and center marks New

    STANDARD, PREMIUM, ULTIMATE

    It's easy to create and edit centerlines and center marks. When you move associated objects, the centerlines and center marks automatically move with your object.

  • Dialog boxes (enhanced) New

    STANDARD, PREMIUM, ULTIMATE

    Many dialog boxes have been made larger. You can resize other dialog boxes, and AutoCAD will remember your last setting. View more information with less scrolling, and make edits in dialog boxes more comfortably.

  • Predictive control New

    ULTIMATE

    In Alias Design software, the new Freeform Curve Blend tool provides predictable results for curves. And the new View Flip feature complements this function by letting you check your curves between modified and scanned surfaces.

  • Stunning Visual Experience

    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

    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

    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.

  • Sysvar monitor

    STANDARD, PREMIUM, ULTIMATE

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

  • Online maps

    STANDARD, PREMIUM, ULTIMATE

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

  • Professional documentation tools

    STANDARD, PREMIUM, ULTIMATE

    Capture the precise details of your design with AutoCAD documentation tools. Import models from a wide variety of other formats and automatically generate intelligent CAD documentation.
