Create 2D and 3D Designs with the New AutoCAD 2014

By Ivy Paloma

On Thursday, April 3, 2014

When designing buildings, objects and anything with precision in 3D or even 2D, I find AutoCAD 2014 the most complete software to do the job. Before I started using it, I had to go through an extensive documentation that goes along with its series of tutorials. I also had to get a powerful computer to run it, which does not come at a low price. Nonetheless, it was all worth it and I’ll tell you why.

AutoCAD is incredibly versatile. It is suitable for both 3D and 2D drawings which allow users like me to customize almost every aspect of my designing process. In recent years, the intuitive interface has been improved at a high level that now makes it easier for me to identify different available functions. I can create DWG files and edit them quickly and, now that the software is available on Mac, I can even work across platforms too.

On the other hand, I know some colleagues that don’t like it whenever they use the software to edit their designs and plans. Updating plans and designs has to be done very carefully because related files are not automatically updated. Even when a little detail in a section of a building design is changed, the entire plan has to be manually changed.

In addition to this, the biggest turn-off for many users is the cost. AutoCAD 2014 doesn’t come cheap. It is one of the most expensive software I have ever purchased. However, its complexity and power justified the cost more for many professionals.

Pros

  • Can be used to create a plan in 2D and 3D
  • Provides many features for its users
  • Enables users to create and edit DWG files in different platforms
  • Contains many features for customization

Cons

  • Requires powerful computer to operate it
  • Costs more than other CAD software
  • Difficult to learn and master
  • Cannot be printed in PDF version

A new, streamlined interface for the industry-standard computer-aided design software

By Beatrice Tan

On Monday, September 1, 2014

AutoCAD 2015 is the newest version of the flagship product of the software graphic industry. This new release sports an array of features that will help any graphic designer - novice, intermediate or expert – work more easily and efficiently.

Opening the software welcomed me to a new interface that allows me to start work on a new drawing, open recently closed drawing documents or access other file tasks. The tabbed configuration allows me to organize open documents easily and conveniently. The new color scheme also comes in a darker spectrum, which should let you view buttons and details more clearly. Inserting blocks is now also made easier, giving you access to these straight from the ribbon. Enhanced features like the command preview, new viewport controls and cursor badges allowed me to finish all my drawings quickly and easily.

All in all, the new release for this industry-standard software is truly a drawing application made even more perfect for any software graphic designer, engineer, architect or just about anyone who needs an accurate and precise drawing software application. You should try and download this software today!

Pros

  • Has a new tab-driven start-up interface
  • Shows a new animated help box
  • Darker color scheme for less eyestrain and added contrast
  • Enhanced lasso selection and object selection features

Cons

  • Lesser tools are shown on the ribbon
  • Speed and performance remain an issue
