Autodesk launches AutoCAD for Mac 2017
Autodesk has launched AutoCAD for Mac 2017 which it says has been in development for the past year.
Among the new features, the company says the more intuitive user interface immediately stands out, with its new model and layout tabs, and updated status bar.
Tool sets are said to be easier to use, as they now have the ability to customise panels to suit the user’s needs. They can be collapsed, moved, reordered and resized in real time, which gives added flexibility to tasks.
The 2017 version is also said to give the user more control over PDF imports, which can now be used to attach text, images and more. Furthermore, users can now import geometry directly as AutoCAD objects, a process which can be controlled by the user, with choices over scale, rotation and insertion point.
AutoCAD users now have the capability to access their Autodesk accounts from AutoCAD, which makes it easier to upload files to the cloud.
