AutoCAD 2013 Software Provides Power and Flexibility, Connects Users to the Cloud
2013 Releases Enable Users to Streamline Design and Documentation Workflows; AutoCAD LT Civil Suite Introduced in Japan
DUBAI, UAE April 10, 2012 ― Autodesk, Inc. announced the availability of AutoCAD 2013 software products ― the latest versions of the company's flagship 2D and 3D CAD design applications, including AutoCAD LT 2013, the AutoCAD LT Civil Suite and AutoCAD 2013. For the first time, the new software connects directly with AutoCAD WS and other Autodesk cloud-based services to help users access their designs and collaborate from almost anywhere.
Equipped with powerful new 3D design tools, AutoCAD 2013 enables architects, engineers and other design professionals to better explore design ideas, accelerate documentation and seamlessly connect the entire design workflow. AutoCAD 2013 software gives users increased flexibility to customize their software to meet unique industry needs and drive efficiency from design concept to completion.
"We're dedicated to helping our customers of all sizes and in any industry bring their innovative concepts to life," said Amy Bunszel, vice president, AutoCAD Products, Autodesk. "Our customers are facing new challenges in increasingly mobile and competitive design environments, and we're committed to delivering the power and flexibility required to meet these challenges with improved efficiency."
AutoCAD LT 2013 drafting and detailing software delivers powerhouse 2D documentation, collaboration and productivity tools. With a focus on ease and efficiency, AutoCAD LT 2013 offers:
Connect directly to cloud-based offerings for online file sharing and customized file syncing. AutoCAD WS is also at users' fingertips with the new Open On Mobile and Collaborate Now tools.
Enhancements to associative arrays, including a contextual ribbon tab during array creation, enable faster and easier creation of objects in a pattern. With path arrays, you can also specify whether to maintain a fixed number of objects, or to automatically adjust the count based on path length and item spacing.
Command line enhancements include even more functionality and configuration options. Dock it at the top or bottom of the screen, or float it transparently over the drawing window. Easily view your command history; access recent commands; and activate options within commands by clicking on them at the command line.
