Maximize your productivity with new and updated tools for conceptual design, model documentation, and reality capture in
AutoCAD 2013 3D and 2D CAD design software.
- Simplified migration to AutoCAD 2013
Help ease the transition to AutoCAD 2013 with improved handling of tool palettes, a reset tool that returns you to the default settings, and a new migration of custom materials.
- Autodesk 360 connectivity
Sync drawings and folders with your online account directly from within AutoCAD with Autodesk 360. Export and attach files directly to your single sign-on account and share files with others via your Autodesk online account.
- AutoCAD companion apps on Autodesk® Exchange
Easily extend the power of AutoCAD software using AutoCAD companion apps created by members of the Autodesk® Developer Network. Visit a single destination to select from hundreds of Autodesk screened extensions.
- Section and detail views
Create section and detail views more quickly for improved workflow. Choose from common section methods including full, half, offset, and aligned and specify circular or rectangular boundaries for detail views. Constrain section lines and detail boundaries to key points in the drawing views to help maintain fidelity even as the model or layout changes. Maintain consistency across multiple section or detail views with customizable view styles.
- Surface Curve Extraction
The new Surface Curve Extraction tool extracts isoline curves through a specified point on a surface or face of a solid.
- Context sensitive PressPull
You can now use the PressPull tool to extrude and offset curves, creating surfaces and solids. Select multiple objects with a single operation using the new Multiple option in the PressPull tool.
- Viewport change preview
Dynamically preview changes to the in-viewport display as you pass the cursor over each object.
- Property edit preview
Dynamically and instantaneously preview changes to object properties before applying them.
- Modern user interaction
Improved interface features include a less intrusive, yet more flexible command line, additional contextual ribbon tabs, and more objects with multi-functional grips. The streamlined interaction with powerful tools, such as associative arrays and hatching, helps you save time and focus on your design.
- Strikethru text
A new strikethrough style for Mtext, Mleaders, Dimensions, Tables and ArcText provides increased flexibility for representing text in your documents.
- Modern user templates
Updated Templates in AutoCAD 2013, designed to better fit user needs, include new title blocks, more relevant hatch patterns, and additional text, dimension, table, and mleader styles.
- Inventor file support
Create AutoCAD documentation drawings from Autodesk® Inventor® models while maintaining an intelligent and associative relationship between the AutoCAD and Inventor files.
- Social media sharing
Share your AutoCAD designs with your social world using built-in connections for Facebook and Twitter.
