2D drafting, drawing, and annotation on Autodesk AutoCAD 2022
- Text settings
Create single or multiline text (mtext) as a single text object. Format the text, columns, and boundaries.
Create dimensions automatically. Pass the cursor over selected objects to get a preview before you create it.
Create leaders with a variety of content, including text or blocks. Easily format leader lines and define styles.
- Centerlines and center marks
Create and edit centerlines and center marks that automatically move when you move the associated objects.
Create tables with data and symbols in rows and columns, apply formulas, and link to a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.
- Revision clouds
Draw revision clouds around new changes in a drawing to quickly identify your updates.
Save views by name to easily return to a specific view for quick reference or for applying to layout viewports.
Specify the size of your drawing sheet, add a title block, and display multiple views of your model.
Use fields in text objects to display text that can be updated automatically as the field value changes.
- Data linking
Enable simultaneous updates by creating a live link between a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet and a table in your drawing.
- Data extraction
Extract information from objects, blocks, and attributes, including drawing information.
- Dynamic blocks
Add flexibility and intelligence to your block references, including changing the shape, size, or configuration.
Create and modify objects in circular or rectangular patterns, or along a path.
Remove multiple unneeded objects at once with easy selection and object preview.
3D modeling and visualization
- Solid, surface, and mesh modeling
Create realistic 3D models of your design using a combination of solid, surface, and mesh modeling tools.
- 3D navigation (orbit, ViewCube, wheel)
Use 3D viewing and navigation tools to orbit, swivel, walk and fly around a 3D model to showcase your design.
- Visual styles
Apply visual styles to control the display of edges, lighting, and shading of your 3D model.
- Section planes
Create section planes to display cross-sectional views through solids, surfaces, meshes, or regions.
Apply lighting and materials to give your 3D models a realistic appearance and to help communicate your designs.
