About Autodesk AutoCAD 2021

Working smarter is easier with AutoCAD 2021

Detailed overview of the newest version of AutoCAD 2021 software inclusive of summary of key characteristics and central engines that are responsible for steadiness and efficiency of implementation of the most complicated tasks and design works.

AutoCAD is basically a software for computer-aided design (CAD) that is extensively applied by architects, designers, engineers, and construction specialists whose key objective is creation of precise 2D and 3D drawings. AutoCAD includes specific features that fully comply to the latest industry standards and various intelligent objects for architecture, mechanical design, electrical engineering, and other construction tasks. AutoCAD is generally accepted, recognized and widely used software for engineering design, which is famous for its reliability, simplicity in utilization and accuracy in completion of engineering works regardless of tasks complexity.

The latest function of Drawing History significantly improves the whole workflow, while delivering the highlights of evolution of engineering drawings constructed by the engineer. Finally, DWG Compare function for external references (Xrefs) has been included for the drawings. The graphics performance has undergone major enhancements as well. In addition, engineers now have the opportunity to maintain constant connection to the main block content anytime and at any location.

Moreover, the latest inclusion of Google Drive in of AutoCAD has significantly enhanced the entire working by allowing flexibility to access and save the design files anywhere and anytime, and to access DWG files saved in Google Drive directly via AutoCAD web app with authorization of Autodesk ID. Furthermore, AutoCAD subscribers now can edit and save design works straight to Google Drive. Latest features also provide the flexibility to view, edit and save DWG works as well as Xrefs with help of Autodesk’s cloud via AutoCAD web app and mobile.

Additionally, the blocks palette has been modified too and now allows synchronization of drawing blocks straight to your cloud storage, as well as access via web-based or desktop account. Engineers are now able to keep effectiveness at desired levels while including blocks out of the Libraries tab both on the web and desktop AutoCAD versions.

The graphics performance has undoubtedly been enhanced by our company’s top professionals and is very impressive. Orbit, zoom and are now faster and smoother due to improved performance of multi-core processors. While panning and zooming in 2D, AutoCAD in auto mode fulfils regeneration operations to create an unobstructed and quicker user experience. 3D orbit, pan and zoom features have are also showing better responsiveness with help of multi-core processors, especially in cases of sophisticated 3D models.

Besides that, the security modifications are very notable too due to inclusion of third-party audits that have provided with ability of internal testing. The AutoCAD Security team continues the enhancement process of all AutoCAD products and assesses arising threats, as keeps full compliance to established industry standards and best practices.

What customers say

Maddison, US
Excellent customer support. Well done! With the help of the support service, a non-trivial, from my point of view, problem with AutoCAD activation was solved. Helped to adapt the interface to the familiar UI 2014, sent an adaptation file. When I applied for additional licenses again, I was informed about a discount campaign, which made it possible to purchase two licenses for the price of one! Thanks!
Gottfrid, BE
Our company purchased the AEC Collection software from this store. On the issue of cooperation with the company, we express our complete satisfaction with the delivery time of the product, as well as the communication skills of the employees who provided significant assistance in activating the program.
Michael, US
I have been working with Revit for several years now, we use it to effectively interact with different departments. Among the advantages, I want to note an excellent rendering engine. And, for example, in this program, stairs can be quickly and easily modeled. Try all the features of Revit 2021 and make sure it's really effective!
Wayne Miller, US
AutoCAD is a wonderful software that I have been using for over 10 years. I really like that the developers are constantly working on improving new versions and fixing bugs. For me, the only disadvantage of AutoCAD 2021 is the lengthy installation and rather high requirements for the technical characteristics of the computer.
