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.
History of AutoCAD
AutoCAD’s roots lie in AutoPlant, a command-line program that was first developed at the outset of the PARC (Palo Alto Research Center) project. AutoPlant was an evolution of the Drafting Machine project, which was primarily a UI design project. Peter Deutsch, who became the Executive Creative Director for the PARC CAD group, developed a first version of a UI for AutoPlant in 1974. The UI was the precursor to the AutoCAD UI.
From 1976 to 1981, the original AutoPlant code was used as the basis of AutoCAD. Later, in 1981, the UI work was fully incorporated into the desktop CAD program as it was being developed at PARC by Don Reay. AutoCAD was first released in December 1982.
The best-selling program in history, AutoCAD has gone through several major revamps:
1980s: PARC (Palo Alto Research Center) first releases AutoPlant.
1984: AutoPlant evolved into a full-fledged CAD program.
AutoCAD was introduced to the market in 1982.
1985: AutoCAD runs on the Xerox 680×0 minicomputer. The program required the same amount of disk storage space as a full-fledged CAD program, but a fraction of the time. At this point, AutoCAD was designed for one person to use.
1986: The first 3-D version of AutoCAD is released.
1987: Autodesk is founded.
1988: AutoCAD continues to be the best-selling CAD program on the market. The 4.0 release introduces the ability to edit and view all types of drawings.
1990: AutoCAD releases the first version to use a point-and-click user interface (UI).
1991: AutoCAD releases its first portable version.
1992: AutoCAD releases its first personal computer (PC) version.
1993: AutoCAD releases its first QuickCAD version.
1994: The first Mac version of AutoCAD releases.
1995: AutoCAD releases its first version to run on Windows 3.1.
1996: AutoCAD releases its first version with a 3-D view.
1998: The first version with version control releases, and the first release to support creating websites.
New Wears The Word (And Flies)
Hollywood Undead have announced a plethora of tour dates in support of their new album, “Live From Austin, TX.”
The tour, which includes dates in North America, South America, Europe and Oceania, kicks off June 20 in Vancouver, Canada. Additionally, the band is also featured in Rock Band 2, a game that allows players to make their own musical instruments.
Hollywood Undead are selling a “Ticketmaster Bundle” with five different colored and numbered tickets for $150.00.
Check out the tour dates for “The Final Solution Live from Austin, TX” after the jump.
There are some pretty awesome visual elements, like bands flying in from all over the globe to catch an in-person concert, and mini skulls with maniac eyes, and I love how the skull kills the skull, and I love how the skulls kill the skull and the skulls kill the skull, and the skull kills the skull…Share this story
Nelson Mandela Bay, South Africa is making strides in transitioning its garbage infrastructure from bagged trash to garbage collected by specialized vehicles. The port on the Indian Ocean is set to become the first jurisdiction in the southern hemisphere to do so. The project is part of Nelson Mandela Bay’s newly passed development plan, which includes the transit of waste from all of the region’s cities to one facility in the city of Port Elizabeth.
Both the recycling and sorting of the waste are being performed by MSCi, a South African waste management company that is partnered with the International Solid Waste Association. Garbage is being collected in three ways:
The garbage is being picked up on the front end of a truck, where the garbage bags are removed and filled to capacity before being placed on a scale.
The garbage is being collected by a specialized vehicle, which is filled in front of a scale and then emptied into containers.
Residents are receiving collection appointments through text message, which is set to increase as the city ramps up its service level and needs to scale up its collection capacity.
The overall goal of this initiative is to cut down on emissions from the garbage trucks, which are large and heavy and have been burning fuel to pick up and deliver trash. Instead, the trucks are collecting trash that is already separated in the sorting facility and using a smaller vehicle, or trailer, to pick up the trash and take it to the sorting facility.

These are quite simple requirements. You are not required to have a very high end computer. You will not be running this game at 1080p. It is a fairly low poly game, so low end graphics cards will be fine.
