A new option, Create Type, appears when you add architectural building objects such as walls, curtain walls, railings, slabs, and roof slabs. This lets you draw regular shapes much faster and more accurately. You can easily create these objects as a rectangle, circle, polygon or free-form polyline.
Architects can now create and modify roof outlines with more control using grips. When you add a vertex, both edges will have the same properties as the initial edge. A straight edge can be turned into an arc, and existing segments can be offset. When you remove a vertex, the properties of the lower-numbered edge will be used on the resulting edge.
Easily adjust a design in Section or Elevation view. This streamlined process removes many previous manual actions. You can easily modify objects in the current drawing or in any level of Xref.
When you subscribe to AutoCAD you get access to AutoCAD vertical products and libraries – now referred to as specialised toolsets – plus web and mobile apps, new features and more.
