Draw wall layouts that reflect actual construction. Modify walls and their endcap conditions on a component level for improved handling of common wall conditions, such as angled, cornered, or intersecting fire- rated walls. 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. Save time and minimize frustration with simple tools to fix broken paths for externally referenced files. See significant improvements in the performance of AutoCAD—including in 3D navigation when zooming and panning.
Allyn Tidball, owner of Allyn C. Tidball, P. AutoCAD has many what I would call high-value, low-profile improvements. Flashy new features are probably great for marketing, but I want to thank the Autodesk team for providing many improvements that I value much, much more in this release.
Some key updates include: The team has continued to make enhancements to this feature. Add to that the enhanced Text to Mtext tool, enabling you to convert a combination of single- and multi- line text objects to a one multi-line text object, automatically inferring formatting. External Reference Path Enhancements Enhancements in AutoCAD help reduce the problems created by broken reference paths by saving time and minimizing frustration.
Create designs and documents more efficiently, in the familiar AutoCAD software environment built specifically for architects. Immediate Productivity: Purpose-built with architects in mind, AutoCAD Architecture automates tedious drafting tasks to help reduce errors and increase efficiency. As you work, you can discover new and useful features at your own pace. Smooth Collaboration:
