The AutoCAD 2022- What’s New?Tweet
The new version of the AutoCAD 2022 the renowned 2D/3D CAD program is now focusing on collaboration tools and automations.
The core of AutoCAD remains the same but with the AutoCAD 2022 and AutoCAD Lt 2022 the idea is to collaborate workflow and automations.
Push to Autodesk Docs/Drive: With this feature the team can view digital PDFs in the field in case reference is required. Using this you can also connect to files which are stored in Autodesk Docs and Autodesk drive or even other cloud storage such as Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive and Dropbox. Now uploading drawing templates, plot styles and various other support files or create the DWG files is now possible using the AutoCAD web app.
Drawing review using Trace: For designers drawing reviews are extremely important. With the Autodesk’s trace you and your collaborators can markup the DWG files without having to make changes in the original. When you open the markups, you can find the feedback in context of the original DWG file and make the required changes.
You can now collaborate with Share. The moment in which you share your DWG file you are asked to choose who can view it and decide the level of access you want to give to each user with “view-only” or “edit”. Share links can be generated using AutoCAD and the web app, the links open automatically on the web app.
There are updated toolsets for mechanical, electrical as well architecture in AutoCAD to help boost productivity by allowing access to libraries with hundreds of thousands of intelligent parts, symbols and features.
The count tool provides the accuracy that is always desired. It helps in automatic counting of the instances of objects in a drawing. The count list consists of blocks that are nested within other blocks.
The floating window- floating window is the window found when you drag a drawing file tab off the AutoCAD application window. Now multiple AutoCAD drawings can be viewed and edited either on the same computer or on multiple computers.
Now you can customize shortcut keys (including recent to repeat commands), block library access, blocks palette helps in displaying blocks as a list which can further be sorted according to name and type, while inserting a block you can rename it, export layout which can now save all visible objects from the current layout to the model space.
The new command export layout helps in creating a visual representation of the current layout in the model space of a new drawing.
