Import PDF files
PDFs have been added to the list of importable file formats.
Now you can import the geometry, TrueType text, and raster images from a PDF file or underlay them into your drawing as AutoCAD objects.
Share design views
Share your 2D CAD drawings in the cloud. Your reviewers don’t need a login or even an AutoCAD-based product to view your drawings, and they can’t alter your source DWG file.
Smart centerlines and center marks
It’s easy to create and edit centerlines and center marks. When you move associated objects, the centerlines and center marks automatically move with your object.
Migration tool enhancements
Migrating your custom settings and files from previous releases has never been easier. Your custom settings are detected, allowing you to choose which ones you wish to migrate.
