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’s adoption among engineers, architects, and other architects, users, architects, and engineers (AOE) has increased dramatically over the years, and the number of copies of AutoCAD in use today is estimated to exceed 100 million. The majority of AutoCAD users are in the United States, and approximately 65% of AutoCAD users are in the A2 category. In 2017, 67% of survey respondents stated that they plan to continue using AutoCAD through at least 2020, and 75% of survey respondents were very satisfied with the application.
The User of AutoCAD
Many users have distinct roles in their organizations that rely on the application for their day-to-day activities. For example, an organization might use AutoCAD in the following manner:
• CAD users often create and modify geometric data, produce drawings and plans, and perform other tasks directly related to the design, engineering, fabrication, and construction of buildings and other physical assets, such as roads, bridges, railways, tunnels, water treatment plants, and factories.
• CAD users often create and modify mathematical data, perform specialized tasks (e.g., bill of materials, price tag and order entry, facility layout, and equipment layout), and perform other tasks related to the management, planning, and control of projects and operations.
• CAD users often create and modify organizational data. For example, they may be involved in organizational activities such as procurement, purchasing, and inventory management, or in engineering, manufacturing, or supply chain management, or for organizational-oriented maintenance, repair, and operations.
• CAD users sometimes use AutoCAD to import or export data, produce photos, and perform more general digital imaging functions.
• Architects and engineering professionals often use AutoCAD to create and modify geometric and mathematical data and to perform specialized tasks. They may also create content for documentation and marketing, update records, and perform other organizational-related tasks.
AutoCAD is typically used by AOE to accomplish the following tasks:
• Create and modify geometric and mathematical data.
• Create, modify, and organize the geometric and mathematical data in documents and views.
• Perform specialized tasks related to architectural and engineering projects, such as creating architectural documents, working with construction management software, rendering drawings, and performing engineering tasks.
• Access and use a variety of hardware and software tools.
Microsoft Excel file formats
Excel is a widely used spreadsheet and database program. It is a native file format of Microsoft Excel and can be used for input and output of AutoCAD drawings, as well as calculations, analysis, and basic reporting. It has the advantage of being readable to many people without specific CAD experience. Some of its limitations are that (1) all numbers are stored in scientific format with decimal precision; (2) Excel does not allow for real-time updates and visualizing and graphically manipulating changing data and its calculations.
J-Sheet is an alternative to the native Excel file format for AutoCAD. It is a vector format, which allows for higher-resolution drawings and more complex charts. J-Sheet is also very fast to draw. In comparison with Excel, J-Sheet is limited in its availability. However, J-Sheet is licensed for AutoCAD drawing creation and manipulation and is easier to write and use in AutoCAD. J-Sheet can also be used to store AutoCAD drawings as a.dxf file.
Open AutoCAD files in other programs
Microsoft Word can open some AutoCAD drawings as the native.dwg,.dxf, and.xsd formats. The Microsoft Paint program can also open AutoCAD drawings in the dwg format. Some downloadable freeware tools such as the free CAD Utility Suite can open AutoCAD drawings in both dwg and.dxf formats. As part of a free trial version of Microsoft Office 2010, users can import AutoCAD drawings into Microsoft Office Word.
Open AutoCAD files with third-party programs
Applications such as free downloader freeARX-Loader, Windows 7 zip software, Windows zip software, Windows ISO loader, and Ansoft.Dx2 are capable of extracting and loading files from a CD or ISO image directly into AutoCAD.
AutoCAD file formats
AutoCAD DWG, Autodesk’s native file format for drafting.
AutoCAD DXF, one of the two most-used native AutoCAD file formats. The other format is.dwg. This is an ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) text file, with markup for each object, line, curve, and text. An example of a DXF file can be found at CAD file format
