Like Google SketchUp, AutoCAD is primarily a 2D drafting and design application, but it can also be used to create 3D models, including stereoscopic and computer-generated imagery. This article covers the basics of using AutoCAD to create two-dimensional drawings. This article is part of an exclusive series of tutorials from the world’s leading CAD architects, engineers, designers, drafters, and 3D artists. Read more articles in the series. AutoCAD is used primarily for architectural, engineering, and construction design, and for mechanical and mechanical-electric design, but it can be used for civil and electrical design. AutoCAD is most commonly used for the following types of drawings: Architectural and structural drawings Mechanical, mechanical-electrical, and plumbing drawings Plans and sections Engineering drawings, including fluid-flow and piping systems Construction drawings, including construction contract drawings Working drawings, such as submittals, shop drawings, assembly drawings, and so on AutoCAD also supports creating the following types of drawings: Drawings in stereographic format (used for stereoscopic and computer-generated imagery) Non-standard drawings, such as perspective or orthographic drawings Detailed drawings, such as construction blueprints and architectural drawings Types of drawings AutoCAD is primarily used for drafting and design of architectural, mechanical, and construction drawings. However, it can also be used for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing designs. Architectural drawings All architectural drawings are two-dimensional (2D) or three-dimensional (3D) documents. The three most common types of 2D and 3D architectural drawings are: 2D architectural drawings 2D architectural drawings include: Floor plans Section drawings Profile drawings 2D architectural drawings can be either drawings in the computer graphics file format Adobe Illustrator (.ai) or in the paper graphic format, such as Adobe PostScript (.eps) or Portable Document Format (.pdf). In the past, 2D architectural drawings were traditionally created in Adobe Illustrator, but the same drawings can be created in Adobe Photoshop, Corel Draw, and other 2D-graphics programs. 2D architectural drawings are 2D documents, meaning they do not contain dimensioned drawings or perspective views. That means that all 2D architectural drawings are represented with a single perspective view
On April 3, 2015 Autodesk released “AutoCAD Architecture” software for free to all subscribers of AutoCAD. In April 2016, Autodesk released AutoCAD 3D for free to all subscribers of AutoCAD. AutoCAD 3D can be purchased for non-subscribers and gives access to the same features as the regular version of AutoCAD. Raster and vector graphics In addition to a raster-based editor, AutoCAD has also had various vector-based editors. These vector editors are partly meant to work with AutoCAD Architecture, and partly to work with engineering applications like Catia. Vector editors Prior to 2010, all AutoCAD vector tools were provided by a set of separate drawing components. Some of these, such as the right-click menu and the cross-hatch/blended-hatch palette, were available in the main program; other tools, including grips and the ability to annotate, were found only in separate vector editors. The two main vector editors in AutoCAD are the Dynamic Input Editor (DAE) and the Graphic Editing Workbench (GEWB). The DAE was introduced in version 14.3, and was the primary vector editor until its removal from later versions of AutoCAD. Since the release of AutoCAD 2016, vector components are provided in the main drawing package, which allows editing to be carried out in the main drawing viewport. However, the vector components are not editable by users in their own personal drawing space, as they are contained in their own layers and cannot be viewed or edited in the same way as a component in a layout. In these newer releases, there is no longer an option to use the DAE as the primary vector drawing tool. The GEWB, in its current form, was first introduced in the 2010 release of AutoCAD. The GEWB consists of a series of new classes that manage the use of the vector data and the brushes. It supports a wide range of drawing and editing operations including annotation, line/area/polygon/arc/circle/ellipse/arc/text, mirror, extraction, layering, polar grid, polar diagram, t-spline, curve, pen, solids, extrude/bevel/trim/extrude/helpers, transformations and parameter editing. It is possible to edit vector drawings through the use of external programs like 3813325f96
Select the Direct Draw profile. Click on the Print button. The current profile selected is taken as the default profile for printing. The profile is saved in the Autodesk Autocad Configuration Menu | File | Application Settings | Data Files The printing starts. To print a drawing in formats other than A4: Open the print dialog. Click on the Print button. In the Print dialogue, select the profile you want to use for printing. Step 5 – Selecting the correct profile A4 or A3 Select A4 as your print format. Click on the Print button. A4 with landscape Select A4 as your print format. Click on the Print button. In the Print dialogue, select the Profile1 from the list of profiles available. Click on the Print button. A4 landscape Select A4 as your print format. Click on the Print button. In the Print dialogue, select the Profile2 from the list of profiles available. Click on the Print button. Note: You can also use the Smart Profiles to easily select between A4 and A4 landscape Autocad Keygen Autocad A4 Print A4 landscape Step 6 – Printing from the command line To print a drawing from the command line: Install Windows Vista Install Windows Vista. Install Autodesk Autocad Open the command prompt. In the command prompt type: C:\Documents and Settings\YourLoginName\Application Data\Autodesk\AutoCAD\acad.exe In the prompt that appears, replace acad.exe with your user profile folder. For example, if you want to print to a PDF file, type: C:\Documents and Settings\YourLoginName\Application Data\Autodesk\AutoCAD\acad.exe -print 2 “/home/YourLogonName/AcadPrinting/printPDF.prn” You will get the following prompt: Press Enter to print The acad.exe will ask you for the drawing file. The print command is inserted before the drawing filename. If the file is not present in your default user profile folder, you may have to specify the full path to the file. For example: C:\Documents and Settings\YourLoginName\Application Data\Autodes
Embedding Images: Embedding images to your drawings is now faster and easier. You can now download images from the web and embed them into a drawing with one click. AutoCAD is also able to determine the format of the image and automatically extract all necessary parts. (video: 1:28 min.) Drawings in CADDie The new design center displays drawings from all over the world, together with metadata and notes from the person who created the drawing. The possibility to add your comments to the drawings as well as comment on other drawings has been increased. Create Freehand Lines: Make a smooth transition from drafting to design by adding freehand lines. Use the new tool to get rid of unwanted lines in your designs. AutoCAD will continue to clean up the freehand lines and separate them from any other elements. Printing on Open Architecture: Integrate a new multiprinter directly into the drawing window. Create new designs by combining different parts. Find the right paper for your drawings and create new drawing sets with specific printers and paper profiles. Improved 3D Experience: The 3D experience has been improved significantly. AutoCAD helps you to find the best 3D views and enhances the navigation experience by providing a full workspace in 3D. Drafting Clusters: Create a complete set of 3D models by easily combining several 2D designs. Designing in the 3D environment is now even easier thanks to an intuitive interface and enhanced 3D editors. CADexpert: An open framework for CAD applications. Autodesk’s CADexpert framework for application developers provides a comprehensive API that can be used in any application that needs information from Autodesk AutoCAD, and now supports AutoCAD 2023. CAD Viewer: AutoCAD Viewer is a web browser plug-in for AutoCAD that provides a cross-platform way to view all types of CAD drawings on the web. CADWebDrawer: The new CADWebDrawer tool is an easy way to download and import full page images from the web into your AutoCAD drawings. This tool is available for users of Windows, Mac, and Linux. CADDie: CADDie is a new web-based product suite that contains the industry-leading CAD application AutoCAD as
