Robust 3D free-form design tools and powerful drafting capabilities to your platform of choice. It takes full advantage of the Mac OS X platform, with an intuitive, graphical user interface that makes it easy to bring your ideas to life. And because it's AutoCAD, you're working natively in DWG format, so you can easily share files with clients, suppliers, and partners around the world, regardless of platform.
What is new in this release:
- Dynamic Blocks. Mac users gain the ability to create and edit Dynamic Blocks--a capability previously limited to Windows users. This feature enables them to insert one block that can change shape, size, or configuration instead of inserting several static blocks.
- Layer States. Mac users can also now save their layer settings as Layer States, which store information like color, linetype, and information about whether a layer is turned off, frozen, or locked. Prior to the 2015 releases, Mac users were unable to view any of the layer states information their Windows colleagues had embedded within a drawing.
- Data Linking. Users who need to link a table to data in a Microsoft Excel file can use the new Data Linking feature, and their table will automatically update as external changes are made. This feature is especially helpful when managing large amounts of information about things like materials or fixtures.
- Quick Select. The Quick Select tool allows users to quickly select objects based on query criteria, enabling users to easily select exactly what they need in their drawing. The Quick Select tool also includes a "preview" option so that users can see what they're about to select before they commit to the selection.
