AutoCAD 2021 features cloud storage, quick measure, drawing history, and more.
AutoCAD 2021 is here and has some robust new features. First released in 1982 by AutoDesk, it has remained the industry standard for architecture, engineering, and design. There are new features in 2021 that you should be aware of. We think you will be excited about many of of these updates. Here we will go over those.
- New web apps
- Version history. Now you can compare changes, throughout the life of a drawing.
- Improved graphical performance. This update speeds up rendering and viewing of 2D and 3D graphics on your Windows and Macintosh computers. AutoCAD 2021 now takes full advantage of multi-core processors.
- Blocks Palette. Now you can access your blocks from AutoCAD
There are many more features, but we are most excited about these. Some other new features include save to web and mobile, purge redesign, and Xref compare.
Autodesk also offers their 3D design software called Revit. Revit is a 3D BIM (Building Information Modeling) software that is slowly eclipsing AutoCAD as the leading design software.
