In addition you can now capture them as static images and print them. The maps that were integral to your design can now be part of your final drawing - you can plot to paper or create PDFs that include the geolocation map Enhanced Reality Computing Enhanced point cloud functionality now includes geolocation and the capability to display colors by elevation.
Reality computing lets you work with point cloud data directly in AutoCAD.
Additionally, the point cloud now behaves like any other design element inside AutoCAD, featuring the same flexibility and control Enhanced Design Feed Enhancements include the capability to use design feed on an intranet, as well as on an Internet or cloud connection. The design and the conversation happen in the same place, but when it's time to send your final drawing, you can choose whether to include the conversation along with it - Built-in tools in both eTransmit and File Save workflows can strip the comments, if desired.
AutoComplete supports mid-string search. AutoCorrect spellchecks your input and offers suggestions from a synonym list, reducing the chances you'll see the Command Not Found message Section and Detail Views Easily access tools for creating Section and Detail views.
Choose from common section methods including full, half, offset, and aligned Associative Array Functionality Establish and maintain a set of relationships between arrayed objects, such as windows on a building or trusses on a bridge. After you select the objects you want to array, you can dynamically preview the array while you modify its properties. Design Surface Curve Extraction Tool Extract isoline curves through a specified point on a surface or face of a solid to determine the contour lines of any shape.
A preview of the resulting spline is displayed before you pick the point. An option within the Extract tool lets you specify the direction of the isolines, either in the U or V direction Context-Sensitive PressPull Tool Extrude and offset curves, creating surfaces and solids. Use the Multiple option to select multiple objects within a single PressPull operation.
Solid, mesh, and surface modeling give you the utmost flexibility and control when designing in 3D. The new navigation bar includes frequently used navigation tools such as steering wheels, view cube, and show motion, as well as pan, zoom, and orbit Surface Analysis Analyze the continuity, curvature, and draft of 3D solids and surfaces.
The zebra analysis projects stripes onto a 3D model to analyze surface continuity - the stripes display continuously only across tangent surfaces In-Canvas Viewport Controls Viewport controls enable you to change viewport settings, views, and visual styles directly on the viewport canvas 3D Associative Array Define arrayed objects when designing in 3D.
You can move the origin and rotate it around the X, Y, or Z axis.
TrustedDWG helps ensure that all the elements in your drawings, and the relationship between those elements, are maintained A Connectivity Use Autodesk cloud-based services to synchronize your files and custom settings. Find the tools and customizations you need in the Exchange Apps marketplace.
