The general aim of AutoCAD is to allow designers and architects to draw a building, or part of one, at a computer and then produce a plan, section, elevation, or isometric drawing from it. An accompanying program, AutoCAD Architecture, is used to draw a floor plan and create sections and elevations.

The price of AutoCAD is normally divided into two parts: a yearly subscription fee and a per-drawing fee. The subscription covers the ability to open and edit files, with the ability to run the software for a limited period after the last payment. If you wish to continue using the software after the subscription is finished you must purchase an additional license. In AutoCAD, the Design tab contains the following panels: 3D Modeling, Drawing and Annotation, Data Management, Layout, Plotting, and Exporting.

AutoCAD’s graphics engine is capable of rendering all common types of two-dimensional (2D) drawings. It supports both vector and raster data, and can display all line styles from a single file. The 3D drawings can be rotated, zoomed, viewed from all sides, exploded, and sliced. New objects can be added to 3D models from both 2D and 3D drawings and from other AutoCAD components, like groups or components. There are multiple views, alignments, and projections in 3D, and different drawing windows, brushes, and lassos. Tools are available for cleaning up or editing existing drawings and parts of them.

The features covered in this article are:


The layout of the main toolbars is managed by the floating palette on the right side of the screen. This palette contains the Toolbars Palette, which contains the AutoCAD Toolbars, the Customized Toolbars, and other options.

AutoCAD’s toolbars offer an extensive set of commands to perform drawing operations. The Toolbars Palette can be moved anywhere in the workspace with the ‘Palette’ option on the Home tab.

There are many customizable toolbars that can be added to the toolbars palette. Toolbars can be renamed, reordered, or duplicated by dragging and dropping. The Toolbars Palette contains several toolbars that cannot be renamed, reordered, or duplicated, so these must be moved manually.

The following toolbars are available on the toolbars palette:

Support for the ability to identify and edit specific layers and drawing items in a drawing. The concept of using layers in a drawing to facilitate hierarchy, document management, and versioning is central to AutoCAD.

Graphical interfaces for accessing functions. New windows such as the Command Line for AutoCAD R20 release is a graphical user interface (GUI) that allows users to perform operations on the computer without relying on the mouse. Command Line can be used in conjunction with the Command Line Interface (CLI), a text-based command line interface.

AutoCAD’s ability to save and load native.dwg (Autodesk’s native file format) files (2010) as well as various other file formats, and the extensive automation options allow users to use the CAD program as a general-purpose drawing program rather than a software-specific drafting and design program.

AutoCAD is one of the few commercial CAD programs still in active development. R20 was released in August 2016.

Autodesk received the EDDY (The Environmental Design and Design Excellence Awards) award for “Outstanding Product Innovation, Design Excellence, and its Leadership in Environmental Design” in 2014, the “Highest Performing Product” award for 2012 and 2013, “High Performance Product of the Year” in 2011, “Best CAD Software – Gold Award” for 2010, and “Best Business Products of the Year” for 2009.

AutoCAD was originally designed as a drafting and design program. Although it was originally developed as a 3D CAD program, it was extended to contain 2D drafting, 2D plans, and 2D drawings functionality.

AutoCAD was originally designed to be a low-cost alternative to CAD programs from other vendors. AutoCAD’s early success is attributed to its low price (around US$12,000) and its low system requirements (300 MHz Pentium processor).

The original version was released in 1994, with its first major revision being version 2.0.

AutoCAD 2000 (released in 1999) marked a departure from previous versions in that it was based on a commercial CAD program by another vendor, DGN, while maintaining the original naming and file formats. A major new feature was the ability to import and edit DXF files that were previously produced by 3D computer graphics modeling programs. The program was widely criticized as too similar to other CAD programs in the

Design Rules:

Extend the power of Design Rules to help you design your future using automated transformations and add transitions between drawings. Transitions between drawings can now be modeled using Bezier and line-based paths. (video: 1:30 min.)


Make rulers easy to edit and navigate. The rulers will now move with changes to the center point, and they’ll follow the coordinates you specify. (video: 2:40 min.)

Project Drawings and Pre-Printing:

Easily work with both 2D and 3D objects in your project files and pre-print drawings. A single model can contain 2D drawings or 3D models. (video: 1:18 min.)

About Andrew Hudson

With over 20 years of CAD design experience and an MBA from The University of Massachusetts, Andrew Hudson helps design firms and enterprises solve their most challenging problems with Autodesk technology. Andy was Autodesk’s Director of Product Management for Product Lifecycle Management before joining ViewSonic in 2015.The City of Portland has decided that it will continue to maintain the MAX Blue Line, a $207 million project to widen and improve Portland’s light-rail system, despite warnings from city residents that it would slow the buses and car traffic.

Residents and business owners complained to the Portland City Council last month that the project, which will add new street and parking lanes on N. Mississippi Avenue, should be halted until residents and business owners were given more time to plan and react to the project’s increased volume of traffic.

Rather than cancel the project, which is on track to begin in 2019, city officials have created a citywide “Traffic Advisory Committee,” which is scheduled to meet next week, to consider a set of mitigation strategies for the city’s traffic problems. City officials are hoping that this, combined with a new citywide “Vision Zero” traffic plan, will give businesses a better chance of mitigating the project’s impacts on business.

“I’m hopeful that this committee is going to come up with something that we can work with,” said Mitchell Baker, a city councilor who is a member of the Traffic Advisory Committee, at last night’s council meeting.

The mayor, who recently announced that the MAX Blue Line will be delayed until 2020 due to concerns about the traffic impacts,
