AutoCAD has evolved into a program capable of designing entire buildings, detailed mechanical parts, and even entire fleets of automobiles. Its popularity has led to software suites such as AutoCAD LT and AutoCAD 360.

AutoCAD Basics

AutoCAD is an application used to design any type of mechanical drawing or 2D sketch of any shape. If you select it, the program will prompt you for which type of object you’d like to work on. You can create basic sketches, drawings of mechanical parts, and much more.

To begin work on a new drawing, select “New,” “Draw,” or the “Draw” tool from the toolbar. AutoCAD starts by drawing a two-dimensional sketch (sketch, line, arc, circle, etc.), and a 3D model (solid, surface, volume, etc.). You can also draw a drawing in your current document.

After you’ve drawn something, the application will determine which view you want to use to see your creation. You can choose from two, three, and four views, or you can switch back and forth. If you have several views open at once, you can select which one you want to use by clicking on the view with a drop-down menu.

A drawing can be saved to your computer in several ways. You can choose “File” and navigate to “Save,” “Save As,” or simply double-click a file in the folder to the right.

When you start a new drawing, you have the opportunity to set your default options. Go to “Options” and then choose “Default Options.” You can set the following:

• Set background color

• Draw and type objects

• Choose between 2D or 3D views

• Select background drawing colors

• Select color for objects and linetypes

• Select background or object color

• Save a copy of the drawing or add it to your desktop

• Use the Autosave option

• Always save a drawing

• Use a project file

• Use grids and guides

• Choose to automatically save the drawing

• Select spacing

• Lock your drawing

• Set the color of your computer screen

• Set the drawing and annotation background color

• Set the drawing and annotation color

• Draw dimensions and labels

• Use tab stops for coordinates

• Set scaling and placement

Raster and Vector Product formats

The maximum raster resolution for AutoCAD (and any AutoCAD-based application) is greater than that allowed in the Microsoft Windows operating system. This is because AutoCAD allows importing and exporting raster graphics. The limitation is on the 32-bit OS (2 GB) and is lifted in AutoCAD 2016, and AutoCAD LT 2016.

In earlier versions of AutoCAD, the Vector product format support only limited formats, and the exported vector format (for example, DXF and DWG) was always a subset of the imported file format (for example, DXF and DWG). The Vector product format now supports arbitrary formats, and the exported vector format is always complete and accurate.

The Raster and Vector product formats are incompatible in most cases. For example, they cannot be used to create a raster and vector-based electronic watermark in the same document.

In February 2012, AutoCAD released a product, AutoCAD Add-In, to solve this problem. It allows developers to create an application that can be installed to any AutoCAD-compatible application, then the same file can be used for raster and vector operation. This is useful for certain applications that require high-resolution raster graphics, such as photomasks for 3D printing, or generating rasterized graphic for the rotational 3D printing or projection 3D printing.

Since 2012, the official AutoCAD Add-In has not been updated to support AutoCAD 2016 and later. However, there is a development team working on this issue.

What’s New in the?

You can now insert paper in the paper space. Previously, the paper space only had a paper symbol that was unavailable for importing paper. (paper symbol: 1:15 min.)

Diverse tools can be used in the paper space, including line styles, fills, colors, and gradient fills.

You can add a toolbox in the paper space.

You can now increase the paper space height and width to suit your design.

You can also change the paper space to extrude, scale, or scale-wrap.

3D models can now be imported into paper space. The paper symbol now reflects the 3D model in the 3D space.

Tools and features for designers and engineers

Smart Tools and Adaptive Behavior:

New tools that were previously unavailable to designers: Select and place a 2D object in the paper space. You can select from a library of 3D objects or import a custom model. (video: 1:39 min.)

Use the Select tool to move a 2D object to the paper space and create a temporary path between the 2D and 3D space. (video: 1:44 min.)

Use the Toggle Selection tool to toggle back and forth between paper and 3D space. You can now toggle back and forth between a 2D and 3D path. (video: 1:36 min.)

Use the Select Paths tool to select a path between the 2D and 3D space. (video: 1:32 min.)

You can now change the color of the 2D object in the paper space with the Select Color tool.

New tools for better visualization:

Use the Axes and Grid tools to view and create axes and orthogonal grids. You can now easily identify and rotate an axis or grid by clicking in the paper space. (video: 1:13 min.)

Export a new slice that contains 2D and 3D information. This feature makes it easier to export and manage your documents. You can combine slices from 2D and 3D models, or separate them for viewing. (video: 1:43 min.)

Use the Expand and Contract tools to easily fit paper space objects to or zoom out from the paper space.

Use the Geometry Selection tool to easily select and snap to objects in the paper space.

Use the Layer and Group tools to change
