Equipped with the right applications, a computer can be of great help in virtually any domain of activity. When it comes to designing and precision, no other tool is as accurate as a computer. Moreover, specialized applications such as AutoCAD give you the possibility to design nearly anything ranging from art, to complex mechanical parts or even buildings.
Suitable for business environments and experienced users
After a decent amount of time spent installing the application on your system, you are ready to fire it up. Thanks to the office suite like interface, all of its features are cleverly organized in categories. At a first look, it looks easy enough to use, but the abundance of features it comes equipped with leaves room for second thoughts.
Create 2D and 3D objects
You can make use of basic geometrical shapes to define your objects, as well as draw custom ones. Needless to say that you can take advantage of a multitude of tools that aim to enhance precision. A grid can be enabled so that you can easily snap elements, as well as adding anchor points to fully customize shapes.
With a little imagination and patience on your behalf, nearly anything can be achieved. Available tools allow you to create 3D objects from scratch and have them fully enhanced with high-quality textures. A powerful navigation pane is put at your disposal so that you can carefully position the camera to get a clearer view of the area of interest.
Various export possibilities
Similar to a modern web browser, each project is displayed in its own tab. This comes in handy, especially for comparison views. Moreover, layouts and layers also play important roles, as it makes objects handling a little easier.
Sine the application is not the easiest to carry around, requiring a slightly sophisticated machine to properly run, there are several export options put at your disposal so that the projects itself can be moved around.
Aside from the application specific format, you can save as an image file of multiple types, PDF, FBX and a few more. Additionally, it can be sent via email, directly printed out on a sheet of paper, or even sent to a 3D printing service, if available.
To end with
All in all, AutoCAD remains one of the top applications used by professionals to achieve great precision with projects of nearly any type. It encourages usage with incredible offers for student licenses so you get acquainted with its abundance of features early on. A lot can be said about what it can and can't do, but the true surprise lies in discovering it step-by-step.

A feature known as Layout, introduced in AutoCAD 2.5, allows CAD users to design and produce 2D drawings from scratch on their computer, rather than on paper, and to use the software’s graphics functions to translate the 3D objects they have created into 2D drawings. AutoCAD has since been released for both the Apple Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows operating systems.
In January 2019, AutoCAD was added to the Google Play Store as an app for the Android mobile operating system.
AutoCAD is used in the design of mechanical parts and assemblies. It is also used to design shapes, symbols, text, and other shapes. Most features are similar to those found in other CAD packages.
AutoCAD can model solid objects, including solids, surface curves and surfaces, surface patches, boundary curves, and boundary surfaces. More complex solids, such as holes and nubbins can be defined, and holes and nubbins can be filled with surfaces and edges. It can model surfaces through the use of control surfaces, such as draw surfaces, fill-holes surfaces, and extruded surfaces.
The use of solids, solids layers, textures, and templates, and the creation of 3D solids from 2D drawings and 2D sheets are among the most important features in AutoCAD. The use of solids enables a designer to build a complex 3D model, without using a series of 2D drawings. However, AutoCAD requires that surfaces be prepared and assigned before they can be used. It can produce vector graphics, which enables a designer to create complex 3D shapes without the need to start from a digital model.
AutoCAD is used in the design of plant components. It is used for 2D drafting of drawings, 3D modeling of objects, and part design. It is used to generate parametric surface families for the design of rollers and curved flanges.
AutoCAD has a project management feature that allows multiple users to work on the same drawing. It includes project management features that track the progress of a design project and help to keep track of deliverables and budgets. It can track the progress of a design, which can be used to determine whether it is complete and how much time it is taking to complete the project. A project, or a set of coordinated tasks, is created when a user starts the drawing or a project
The XML-based files DWG and DXF can be read directly into and out of SolidWorks.
AutoCAD has historically run on a wide variety of operating systems. It runs on Windows, Mac OS X, and several other operating systems, ranging from major manufacturers, such as Microsoft, Sun Microsystems, and Apple Computer, to niche operating systems such as Palm OS, Microsoft Windows CE, Pocket PC OS, and Linux. AutoCAD for the Web is available for Windows and Apple computers, as well as for Mac OS X. AutoCAD LT is supported on Windows NT and Linux. In the past, AutoCAD ran on Palm OS, but now that operating system is unsupported. There have been other operating systems that have also been supported in the past.
AutoCAD uses a variety of hardware devices, some of which are specific to AutoCAD while others are made for specific functions in the drawing process. In AutoCAD 2000 and earlier versions, specific functionality was tied to specific hardware. For instance, AutoCAD 2002 was dependent on Intel’s Pentium processor, while AutoCAD 2006 could run on any Pentium processor. On the other hand, AutoCAD 2010 used the processor from Tyan Computer, and could only run on a Tyan N1555C (Pentium D) or Intel Core 2 Duo processor. However, starting in AutoCAD 2012, the drawing engine is platform-independent. AutoCAD 2012 can run on a Tyan N2304B (2.4 GHz, 2 cores), Intel Core 2 Duo (2.26 GHz, 2 cores), or an Intel Core i7 (2.8 GHz, 4 cores) or better.
AutoCAD for the Web
The AutoCAD drawing and modeling application is now available in the form of a Web application. This enables people to use a web browser and run AutoCAD to create and modify drawings and models directly on the web. The web version is available on the Web for Windows, Apple and Linux operating systems. This application is provided by Autodesk and is available for free download.
The AutoCAD web application is intended to operate like a stand-alone application. It can only be used on the client device on which it is downloaded. This means that it cannot run on a web browser on a mobile device such as a smartphone. Users can export their documents in Web format, rather than using the file
Open Autocad and open the project.
On the left menu bar go to the “File” option, and then click on “Open Recent Files”.
Choose the file that is located in the drive, that you wish to clone. The most efficient way to clone your files is to open your drive where the project is located, because it will take a lot less time to copy your files than if you would have opened the drive in the computer.
When you click on the “Open Recent Files”, you can see a list of the latest projects that you have opened.
However, you can always add a location to the list, by opening your “Documents” folder or your “Downloads” folder.
Open the file that you wish to edit. You can also do that by opening a “New File” option and save your file with the same name as the file you will use to make your edits.
Open the file you downloaded.
Select the main document or the desired part in the document you opened.
Open “Windows”, “File”, “Export Clipboard”
Choose “All Files” and then the name of the file.
Click on “Apply”
Save the file in your desired location.
In case you missed your files
Depending on the version of AutoCAD, the file that you have downloaded is a.cdb or a.dwg file.
For 2017 versions, the.cdb file is the one that needs to be opened.
For earlier versions, the.dwg files are the ones that you need to open.
In case the file you open is a.dwg, you can double click on the document, in order to open the project.
In case you want to clone all projects
We are going to use the method for automatically cloning all projects for now.
Open the menu bar, and then click on “File”, “Recent Files”, and then “Open Recent Files”.
You should now see all the projects that you opened in your last session.
You can add more projects to the list, by clicking on “Open”, and then on “Add Location
