Automatically insert and place doors or windows with complete placement control. Move any wall, and all connected walls and spaces automatically update. Spaces Automatically tag every room in a drawing, complete with room areas.
As room boundaries change, you can easily update spaces, causing tags and areas to refresh, maintaining accurate documentation. Sections and Elevations Generate 2D sections and elevations with material hatching, directly from your floor plans. If your design changes, fully updated section and elevation graphics are generated, maintaining layer, color, linetype, and other properties. Scheduling Customize the appearance of out-of-the-box schedule styles to meet company standards or create new schedules from scratch, complete with required calculations, with ease.
Schedules are linked directly to your designs, enabling you to update them to reflect any design changes with the click of a button. Rendering Bring designs to life for client presentations at any stage of the design with integrated rendering. The streamlined visualization capabilities are fully integrated into the AutoCAD Architecture workflow.
Make your presentations stand out by visually communicating richer design information. Extend rendering capabilities even further using the FBX file format to export designs to modeling and animation software such as Autodesk 3ds Max Design. Dimensioning Greater flexibility in AutoCAD Architecture enables you to dimension any wall-and all its components, including wall stud centerlines and faces-according to your own dimensioning standards.
And since the dimensions are associative, they automatically update as your designs change, eliminating the tedium of many manual updates.
Renovation Documentation Tools Speed the design and production of renovation projects with tools to help create correct representations of existing, new, and demolition plans. AutoCAD Architecture renovation documentation tools enable you to assign objects to different renovation categories, and then change these assignments at any time.
Using a single revision plan helps you switch between renovation, demolition, and revision plans more quickly and avoid the need to create and maintain redundant data sets. Thank you for your consideration and support. The new AutoCAD release hit the streets last week, bearing a limited list of new features but accompanied by significant licensing changes that may make you rethink how you handle your AutoCAD purchases.
After all, you know your boss is going to ask you about this, so the time understand it all is now. Here goes. Those include: Certainly, if you use multiple toolsets and you previously had to pay for the verticals separately, then this may be a bargain for you.
While these conclusions may seem negative, the reality is that there are still a lot of people who use vanilla AutoCAD without any web or collaborative functions and no product extensions now called toolsets. You can run the software as long as you wish; this license type never expires. If you want to upgrade to the next version of the software, then you must pay a maintenance fee which Autodesk has already stated will escalate in coming years.
This license type is essentially rental for a term of months, quarters, or years. Perpetual license holders lose value. Subscription license holders will see higher prices. Migration requires some effort. Autodesk is pushing customers to subscription. By restricting new products and features to subscription holders only, the perceived value of perpetual licenses is diminished in comparison.
