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

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
