Create simple or complex drawings from standard shapes such as lines, arcs, and circles. Modify existing geometry with commands such as stretch, copy, rotate, and scale. Add annotations—including text, dimensions, and tables—to help convey your ideas with real-world dimensions and technical detail.
Efficiently edit and repurpose drawings to iterate and evaluate design options. Use advanced tools like Associative Array and Dynamic Blocks to accommodate design changes.
Collaborate with Others
Get Industry-Leading Reliability and Stability
Create drawings using the latest DWG technology and have confidence in data integrity when sharing your work. Maximize productivity by reducing time lost tackling corrupted or incompatible data.
Incorporate External Files
Reuse data and create richer documents by referencing external information from colleagues or clients—such as DWG files, JPEG and TIF images, Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheets, and DWF and PDF underlays—in your drawings.
Benefit from AutoCAD Compatibility
AutoCAD 2013 software is fully integrated with other Autodesk software products, making it easier for you to share data with others or expand your capabilities.
Extend Your Desktop
Take full advantage of the features of the Autodesk 360 cloud-based platform through close integration with AutoCAD 2013 software. With the computing capacity and capabilities of Autodesk 360 cloud services closely integrated with AutoCAD 2013, you can store, review, and share files, keep track of file updates, and invite others to comment on designs.
Share Files Electronically
Electronically publish and distribute drawing sets in a single DWF or PDF file for faster, more secure collaboration.
Drive Efficient Design Documentation
Enhance your productivity with features and tools that can reduce the number of steps required to accomplish everyday tasks and create a drawing.
Efficiently Reuse Content
Save time and standardize drawings by using blocks, adding dynamic properties to accommodate multiple sizes or views in a single block. Get quick access to frequently used content such as blocks, hatches, and commands with tool palettes.
Tailor Your Work Environment
Quickly find your way around the screen with tools to locate commands, view all open drawings, and navigate between different areas in an open drawing. Optimize your work environment by tailoring the location and appearance of commands to help meet your needs and company standards.
