autocad-badge-128px-hd¬†So you may have heard that Autodesk released it’s latest and greatest, AutoCAD 2016. What you may not have heard is what’s new or enhanced. I’m here to tell you about both, so buckle in; here we go…

What’s New:

  • Visual Experience
    • Visual enhancements help you see your drawings more clearly. Readability is improved with true curves instead of line segments.Picture2
  • Coordination Model
    • Design within the context of existing BIM models. Attach and view Navisworks and BIM 360 Glue models directly inside AutoCAD.Picture4
  • Smart Dimensioning
    • Automatically create appropriate dimensions based on the geometry. Pass the cursor over selected objects to preview.Picture5
  • Sysvar Monitor
    • Prevent unwanted changes to your system settings. Get alerted to changes to your preferences that could affect your design work.ACAD_SysvarMonitor01

What’s Been Enhanced:
