The perfecet computed-aided design software to create 2D and 3D drawings

By Steven Moore

On Friday, April 11, 2014

AutoCAD 2014 is part from the suite of AutoDesk and it serves to create and design 2D and 3D images and objects. The improvements in regards to the previous AutoCAD version are quite numerous, but I will talk about just a bit of them; the most important ones. Let's see the new interface. It has been highly improved and now, the new logo and branding are more visible. Tabs have been reorganized and now everything can bee see at first glance. In addition, if you click on a tab that is active, you will see a preview of the paper space and files model, what provides you with a quick access.

The second most important improved feature is the Command Line. Now, the autocomplete function is more accurate than ever. If you start typing a command, the autocorrect will help you to spell it correctly. In addition, you will be given a list of commands to choose instead of typing them, so you will be able to save time.

Pros

  • Your creations will look quite professional
  • It has a wide variety of tools
  • You can customize the interface

Cons

  • The full version is not free

IF YOU WANT TO DEVELOP OBJECTS OF 2D AND 3D,THEN USE THE AUTOCAD 2015 FOR THAT WORK.

By Rock Raymond

On Wednesday, April 15, 2015

Auto CAD is a Computer-aided design that helps the user with designing the objects and also the images.When designing things with this software,you do that piece of work in an easy way and you can even go on and download so many different elements from the computer and modify the drawings you have made in a 2D and 3D system.I choose to be using this system because of its work rate when processing figures and more,the help provided by the nice tools that it contains when you are creating different projects in your computer.

What makes this tool somehow hard to use to the bigginers is that it is usually used by the architectures to design big buildings but you will get used to it as soon as you start working with it because this tool can overall do any kind of the work that you wish to.There is the 3D Free-Form Design Tool which allows each and every user to manipulate is objects by pulling them in different sides and then changing their shapes.There is also the scanned drawing capture which helps you to digitalise your hand drawing and even allowing you to alter the items that you want to alter.

This is the best powerful design tool since all the others competitors such has the Ashampoo3D CAD Architecture or Flash CAD can not even near its work rate and it functions are far ahead of these others.

Pros

  • It has the design feed option to let you communicate with your co-workers.
  • There is the library to view,select and edit materials.
  • There is the option to delete the objects that you no longer see useful.

Cons

  • For one to get the required license,you will use alot of money making it more expensive.
