Autodesk Inc, a world leader in 3D design software for entertainment, natural resources, manufacturing, engineering, construction, and civil infrastructure, announced the release of AutoCAD Architecture 2018.1, is one of the leading software that has helped engineers to design some awesome architecture and will boost the productivity in large projects.
Autodesk AutoCAD Architecture 2018 has been specifically configured for the architectural market place and to that end contains productivity tools specific to this market sector.
Built on the familiar AutoCAD platform new user after a small amount of initial training can transition with relative ease to this powerful architectural CAD software platform and speed up drawing creation, the production of schedules and of course other related documentation.
The AutoCAD Architecture 2018 toolset comprises of a comprehensive set of keynoting tools, a substantial detail components library, scheduling and automatic tagging (and updating) of spaces as room layout changes.
AutoCAD Architecture's drawing productivity tools include automated functionality for building elements such as windows, door and walls, initial generation of 2D elevations and sections from corresponding floor plans and subsequent generation resulting from design changes.
- High Resolution (4K) Monitor Support
Most AutoCAD Architecture and AutoCAD MEP user interfaces are now optimized to work with high resolution monitors. As a result, dialog boxes such as the Style Manager and Display Manager dialog boxes, and palettes such as the Tool palettes and Styles Browser, scale correctly when you increase the text size in Windows display properties.
Approximately 400 new MVBlocks and block references are added to the metric content in the Design Center. The content includes lighting, furnishing, elevators, escalators, and electrical services.
- Performance Improvements
The value of the HPMAXLINES system variable has been optimized to reduce the time taken to open drawing files. The occasional crashes that occurred when opening and saving files, as well as when mirroring drawings containing Architecture entities are addressed.
- Seamless Updates
Whenever an update is installed on AutoCAD Architecture 2018 or AutoCAD MEP 2018, the ribbon highlights the feature that was updated.
- Product Quality Improvement
Projects addressing product reliability have resulted the following improvements:
. Exporting and converting schedule tables to Excel produces correct results under conditions it would not in previous releases.
. Transparency values are retained when set through the Display Properties dialog.
. Isolate Objects now correctly retain divided spaces when one of the spaces is isolated.
. It is no longer necessary to refresh a project to display new sheets in the Project Navigator.
. The Manage Content Library dialog is no longer suppressed when launched from the Style Browser, soon after migrating from a previous release.
. Issues with PDF drawings that did not import correctly in previous releases have been identified and rectified.
. The EXPORTTOAUTOCAD command no longer results in a system crash when exporting drawing files containing Open Light entities.
. Product Updates are now visible in network deployment when added through the Add Updates option.
. 2D block references will no longer participate in section creation operations.
. You can now split or trim mass elements when using non-default UCS.
