What’s New

Experience more intelligent tools and richer design context with new AutoCAD® 3D CAD software’s new features including Stunning Visual Experience, Smart Dimensioning, and Coordinated BIM Model.

  • Smoother 2D curves make it easier to separate out and highlight details in your drawings.
  • Design within the context of existing BIM Models using Coordinated BIM Model.
  • New collaboration tools allow you to integrate various products, such as a Navisworks model into AutoCAD for integrated design, with greater ease.
  • Save time and design with more accurate measurements with new Smart Dimensioning tools, which automatically create appropriate measurements based on drawing context. Pass the cursor over selected objects to see a preview of the resulting dimension before you actually create it.
  • Produce documents faster with smarter, more powerful, and smaller files using PDF Enhancements.
  • For better performance, all text is now searchable and you can attach PDF files to your drawings.
  • Enjoy greater security with new monitor alerts that notify you of unwanted changes to your system settings that may impact your drafting work.
