  • Share design views New

    STANDARD, PREMIUM, ULTIMATE

    Share your 2D and 3D CAD drawings in the cloud. Your reviewers don’t need a login or even an AutoCAD-based product to view your drawings, and they can’t alter your source DWG™ file.

  • Import PDFs New

    STANDARD, PREMIUM, ULTIMATE

    Many PDFs have been added to the Import File formats. Import the geometry, TrueType text, and raster images from a PDF file or underlay them into your drawing as AutoCAD objects.

    AutoCAD 360 Pro is now included with your subscription. The app lets you take the power of AutoCAD wherever you go to draft, edit, and view 2D CAD drawings across multiple devices, access drawings from any cloud storage service (such as Google Drive or Dropbox), and work offline and sync changes when back online.

    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.

  • 3D printing (enhanced) New

    STANDARD, PREMIUM, ULTIMATE

    You have several options for 3D printing: You can send your 3D models to an external 3D print service. Or, install the Print Studio tool and either connect to a 3D printer or create a print file for later.

  • Autodesk Raytracer renderer (ART) New

    PREMIUM, ULTIMATE

    The new ART renderer in 3ds Max software is a fast, physically based renderer, ideal for design visualization workflows used in AutoCAD Design Suite. Support for IES and photometric lights from Revit building design software help you create more accurate images of architectural scenes.
