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.







AutoCAD 2022 24.1 [Latest]

Autodesk wants to enhance the drawing capabilities of the AutoCAD platform. According to the official Web site, the main goals of the next version of AutoCAD are to further improve its data modeling and technical integration. This time Autodesk promises faster and more accurate drawing results, and better integration with cloud computing.


AutoCAD is an in-house development and the main product of Autodesk. Since its introduction in 1982, the software has become more and more powerful over the years, allowing the designers, engineers, and other users to create more complex projects. In 1987, Autodesk gave it the tagline of “AutoCAD for everybody”.

With the new AutoCAD 2020, Autodesk says that it is for all: from amateurs, to professionals, and beyond. The software will also provide innovative collaboration and communication tools, along with improved task-oriented features, and an easier work flow.

To kick off the new AutoCAD version, Autodesk released a video, which goes over the following seven features:


User interface that focuses on a single task. This feature, in addition to being very easy to use, is an excellent choice for simple and repetitive tasks.

Geometric View

The feature allows users to look at the actual drawing from any point. This enables the designers to preview the geometry, work with it as if they were drawing right on paper.


The feature allows users to control the process of applying a component to an object, saving the components or work stages, and bringing back previous objects from a previous stage.

Project Library

Allows the users to create their own libraries and save them.

Additional Features

Some of the additional features include collision detection, freeze editing, and the ability to have new objects appear on the canvas, which are then deleted as soon as they are no longer visible.

More Complex Project

The new version will allow users to create a project containing drawings in layers, which can be exported to other programs or web platforms. In addition, the version will include the new GHS color-accurate 3D rendering.

The Web API

This is a platform-independent API that will allow the users to interact with AutoCAD from other programs or devices.


The AutoCAD 2020 release will also include a set of new tools, which, according

AutoCAD 2022 24.1 X64

Basic information, such as filename and dimensions, can be modified using Direct3D (using DirectDraw and DirectWrite interfaces). These include dimensions/measurement.

Use the functions in the CADApplication module for parametric geometry objects, parametric views, parametric dimensioning, and parametric surface displays.

Use the functions in the DrawingDisplay module for displaying non-parametric objects, non-parametric views, and non-parametric dimensions.

Productivity tools
The AutoCAD Application Programming Interface (API) and the Application Programming Interface (API) have allowed programmers to extend the user interface and capabilities of AutoCAD. The C++ programming language, which includes the AutoLISP programming language, has been used to automate many different tools, such as:
Autodesk Indexer: A standalone indexing program used to index a drawing set to help organize it.
Autodesk Architectural Desktop: A standalone version of AutoCAD for creating architectural blueprints.
Autodesk Mechanical Desktop: A standalone version of AutoCAD for creating mechanical blueprints.
AutoCAD Structural Analysis: A standalone version of AutoCAD for structural analysis.
AutoCAD Structural Desktop: A standalone version of AutoCAD for structural design.

Productivity tools that use the CADApplication module include:
AutoCAD Add-In Tools: tools which extend AutoCAD functionality. AutoCAD Add-in Tools include Inserts, Data Collection, Menu Utilities, Drawing Collections, 3D Graphics, and others.
AutoCAD Network: Allows users to add the AutoCAD CAD Application functions to their workstation through a network. This includes two-way communication from AutoCAD to a remote application or website. There is also a legacy remote API using TCP/IP, RMI/RPC, and JMS (Java Messaging Service).

The DXF importer module allows users to import drawings to a CAD Application that is running on a PC.

AutoLISP is a code-based programming language (similar to BASIC and similar early procedural programming languages).

Use of AutoLISP was discontinued in 2009 with the release of AutoCAD 2011. Support for AutoLISP was offered in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

AutoLISP is similar to Visual Basic and Microsoft Visual C++ with the following differences:
AutoLISP uses syntax similar to Visual
