AutoCAD software lets you design, visualize, and document your ideas clearly and efficiently. With AutoCAD 2009, Autodesk has one goal: increasing productivity. New features accelerate tasks, allow commands to be easily found, and help rapidly train new users.
Solid and Surface Modeling and Visualization
Robust modeling capabilities enable you to shape and visualize your ideas unlike ever before. The redesigned interface uses a single, easy-to-learn environment for creating both solids and surfaces. Users can now create solid objects that have faces defined by complex surfaces. Applying materials to a model is a simple task. Just drag materials from a predefined library onto any solid face or surface defined in their model.
Users can now make highly accurate, photorealistic rendered images available for any purpose. Use these images to win contracts, meet planning requirements, or study the effects of changes on the design.
With the ribbon interface, overall drafting productivity is increased as the number of steps to reach a command is decreased. The ribbon is both customizable and expandable so that it can be optimized for each user and can meet each company™s standards.
