5 What's New in AutoCAD 2013

Some of the innovations we have seen in the beta version of AutoCAD 2013 called for this Jaws version tell us what trends we would be seeing for April of the 2012 year, when it will be officially launched; although we barely digest What's New in AutoCAD 2012.

Autocad 2013From the start the news already known: A new dwg format 2013 !. What happens is that it does not surprise us, because badly used we understand that AutoDesk does this every 3 years (I used to do it every year), so the time of dwg 2010 has expired, which was the same for 2011 and 2012. While AutoDesk says it is to optimize the format, we understand that it is also to control competitors and frustrate the life of OpenSource platforms.

But to see that not everything is bad, now AutoCAD 2013 is multilanguage (well almost). It is no longer necessary to install each version in the specific language, but you can download another language and install it ... just like other programs do (hace 800 años)

There are also improvements in Ribbon functionality, rather than to search for commands. After the Ribbon arrived, features that make it attractive, especially the contextual ones, have been increased. It can be seen in commands such as Array and Hatch, which instead of lifting the annoying floating window are displayed in the palette of the headband, facilitating the preview and interactive options.

1 Welcome panel

It has been integrated a welcome panel at the start of the program, something similar to the panel that has Corel Draw X5, with options to make a new drawing, open an existing one, open examples or know what's new in the version. Very good functionality, especially for new users who enter and do not find what to do with so much scattered button, there are also access to initiation videos and social network links Facebook and Twitter.

Below you have an option to avoid this when you enter, and you can also call from the help menu. Also the help can now be offline.

2 The command line

Autocad course 3d 300 A good AutoCAD 2012 course freeIn the version of AutoCAD 2012 the option to autocomplete commands was added, and although this is an archaic functionality, it will be difficult to completely disappear. Now the option that can be taken as a hanging window has been set, adaptable to different placement options.

Course of AutoCAD 3D for only US $ 34.99

I think of the best changes applied by AutoDesk, which started from AutoCAD 2011, the historical command line maintains transparency, so it bothers less the drawing or the workspace. Although we clarify -Thanks to the intervention in one of the comments- the color supports and the alternatives of the command show the letter in different color, it is not new; but it is now possible to click on the option, with what we believe that the prehistoric use of the keyboard will definitely die, as the right mouse button was annoying. Additionally, we believe more capabilities will be integrated to avoid the keyboard, such as the enter, space or scape.

Autocad 2013

In spite of everything, the command line was always better than the Keyin of Microstation and it will cost the traditional users to release it; although for the users that knew AutoCAD for the first time already with the Ribbon, they will continue thinking that it is an old functionality like the Command Prompt of the DOS.

3 Preview changes

Currently, if you have something selected and the properties panel is raised, it is not possible to see previously how it will be grips and dotted lines. That will no longer be the case ... the change is very good, although we would expect it to be extended to the preview of the change of line type, source or properties of the boundary.

Autocad 2013

Autocad 20134 The model documentation

This was implemented in AutoCAD 2012, and for this version brings new improvements, quite good indeed in the handling of cuts and cross sections of 3D objects. This is especially reflected in the cutting of cuts, handling of different types of units, parameterized stretching and associative limitation. While this has a lot of potential in the handling of layouts, very little has been appropriated by users of the civil area, especially because they are waves that were placed there to look for compatibility with Inventor (even now you can import Inventor models); On the side of Bentley it is seen more with the implementation of dynamic cutting sections in hypermodels.

5 Support for point clouds

Autocad 2013Nor is it totally new, although now the option appears in the Ribbon in the Insert option, and some capabilities have been extended. While the improvements for managing external references and raster files is still miserable (compared to other programs that support more formats and excluding Civil 3D), the expansion of options in pointcloud support as a normal routine is striking. Now when selecting an object of this type, the ribbon is activated in a contextual way for easy access, among these options the clip clipping.

Also in the properties table, you can filter specific actions for pointcloud objects.

Supports Faro type scan files (fls, fws, xyb) ASCII standard (xyz, txt, asc), the, Leica (ptg, pts, ptx) and Topcon (clr, cl3). The way it operates is similar to the loading of reference files, being able to configure color, intensity and clipping options.

It remains to be seen how it handles the memory of the computer, which has always been a weakness in AutoCAD, it is supposed an improvement in this 2013 version in the indexing and import in batch. We are left with the question of how the issue will go with Pointools' relationship, which has had a lot to do with what AutoCAD now achieves in this, however, as that company Acquired by Microstation And what they intend to do with Descartes, will surely be difficult to overcome.

When saving the file in the previous version to the dwg 2013, the system alerts by the change of compatibility.

Other minor changes

  • The Viewports panel is now no longer in the Viw tab but in Layout
  • The miniature previews of the drawings are now a little more eye-catching
  • In the handling of 3D objects, very little, just the curved surface extraction and the extrusion with the command PRESSPULL that although it is not new command (rinsing), raises the option of extrusion distance no more is selected the object.
  • When you export the layout, the regen command is now executed so that the circles do not go as polygons
  • The offset can now be seen in preview, as does the parallel command of microstation
  • Double click now activates text editing
  • There is support for storing in the cloud, you can share and open collaboration via AutoCAD WS

But this is a preliminary review, almost 5 months before it is released AutoCAD 2013, so you have to wait more; As well as the almost parallel update of AutoCAD for Mac.

The beta testers version can be downloaded from: https://beta.autodesk.com/

The installation includes the update of the .NET Framework Runtime 4.0, the Faro SDK, DirectX Runtime and some Visual C ++ libraries.

Here you can see a complete summary of What's New in AutoCAD 2013, Compared to the versions of other years.

  1. Hello everyone seeing several pages that try Autocad and seen comments for and against it, for my part I will tell you that autocad is friendly either through its icons or its short commands but it all depends on what we are going to draw. Since if we want to draw a mechanical part quickly I suggest you use Inventor, SolidWork or CATIA and if you are going to draw an architectural plan is the REVIT, for more than 20 years and used Autocad and drawn architectural, mechanical, structural, paileria plans , etc., and it has given me results. In Mexico most of the small and medium industries use Autocad and not a current version if not versions that go from the 2000 to the 2005 since buying a new version each year would be expensive, so the artist has to adapt to this versions. Good to summarize all CAD software is good and each one has its advantages and disadvantages everyone is friendly if the artist or designer puts the best of himself to be able to dominate him and have the patience to study his handling, without the patience and the desire to learn any program we will see it not as a tool but as an enemy. Best regards to all.

    Thank you very much

  7. Hello! I am using the 2013 autodesk, when I open a file that was saved with the 2012 or 2011 autodesk, I realize that several letter formats are configured do not look the same, as I do so that everything is exactly the same as when I work it in another version and thus not have to correct the formats again.
    I hope you can help me!!
    THANKS!

  12. How can I put the autocad2013 in classic mode? Also, I have it in English and I do not clarify much. Thank you

  13. Start menu A> Options> Visual> Window elements> Show scroll bars. In the drawing window

  14. No, in the bottom right there is an icon that looks like a pinion, it stings there and different options come out, click on the one that you need and already, it is more can be saved with different specifications ..

  15. It is by the FILEDIA command that is disabled
    Look for an article in this same site that explains how to solve it.

  16. Hello, when I press the "open" command, I don't get the explorer, what appears to me is a floating command line with the address of the last open plane. How do I get the windows explorer to appear again?

  17. One question, In AutoCAD 2013 in the work space, disappeared the classic mode and drawing and modeling in 2D?

  18. In the left side corner of the bar you will observe a punticos from there you drag it towards the corner that insinue a big picture and the loose ones and you will leave you like the previous versions

  19. I have a question regarding autocad 2013 ... ..as I do so that the command line looks like the previous ones ... big ... I see that it is very small and I do not like it ... thank you

  20. Is very ex3lente the new packages incluooo no longer have no problemass graxias

  21. HELLO DANIEL IN YOUR AUTOCAD YOU OPEN TOOLS AND YOU GO TO OPTIONS TO ELIGES OPEN AND SAVE AND YOU CHOOSE HOW TO SAVE YOUR AUTOCAD FILES SO YOU CAN SEE AND WORK IN LAST VERSIONS

  22. HELLO GOOD DAY TO YOUR AUTOCAD 2013 CONFIGURALO TO SAVE ALL YOUR WORKS IN A DELAYED VIEW SO YOU CAN VISUALIZE THEM AND WORK THEM IN ANY OTHER VERSION YOU WILL GO TO TOOLS YOU GO TO OPTIONS AND YOU CHOOSE OPEN AND SAVE AND YOU CHANGE WHEN VERSION IS RECORDED

  23. When you save the files in AutoCAD 2013, choose to save them as 2010 version, so you will not have problems to see them with the version you have in your house.

  24. A query, in my university we have cad 2013, but in my house I use 2011, and I can not open the 2013 file, how can I do it to open it, can I or do I have to install the 2013?

  25. When I started using computers, around in the bachelor years, I could not find anything that caught my attention, until I met the autocad (10 version), when I learned about this program, I understood many things that can be done with these machines, from the games of entertainment, to the advanced programming in autolisp, I could never finish a plane inked by hand with leroy and much less that I would be satirfied with the results, without having done with autocad I have finished hundreds or thousands, since I became Engineer, thanks to this tool with which you can program the calculations resulting in the drawing (automatic)

    There are other very respectable programs such as archicad, which may be better, depending on the determination that each of us has to take advantage of them.

    I do not use the autocad to 100%, since each one of us has different needs, in my case, I was lucky enough to start my career almost at the same time as the autocad era, always at the forefront, that has allowed me to be more competent.

    If it is faster using the abbreviated commands, and the mouse only to control the zoom, with programming by means of scripts, can do really surprising things.

    Greetings ..

  26. Greeting I have been reading the comments on the subject of the car cad me guitaría limit the following
    When I learned how to use this design tool, they were taught to handle short commands as a way of knowing the origin of them, I have given several courses on auto CAD courses and I have taught them to use both the short commands and the commands that appear in Each window of the program as such but the worst is that in many offices. The program is blocked by the operators and they do not know how to solve the problem or how to exit it is embarrassing and I do not seem to criticize in a bad way those who operate the program with the keyboard but if I tell them that the way to work only with the icons anyone draws my son draws through the icons and is 14 years old and has moments that he wants to solve some problem in what he is drawing and if it does not appear in the icons, what he is doing is paralyzed, those who have a lot of time using the software know what I mean, I do not criticize those that are handled through the icons and the truth is that we do not handle the program at 100 by% but at 25% and at most 35 / 40% this tool has a range of thing very useful, make more intelligent plans. With spreadsheets, computations, to name something so I recommend you to scrutinize the software more and then comment on it, there is and I think that the improvements should be made in the 3d part there MicroStation is more friendly if I could say

  27. And because I have not read anything about how long it takes the civil 3d 2012 to open, to perform every task that is put on and the worst if you have many windows, you can go to sleep for a while in what you load ... with the technology that is there and the machines that ask for the programs to run and this civil utility 3d 2012 does not seem that I am using 13 autocad for windows 3.11 an eternity in each task ... hopefully and as they make so many improvements outside the drawing so fast as when the autocad 14 for windows rifaba! for it has been the best version, I do not know why they can not improve it ... Thanks.

  28. If you want speed, I recommend you stop using autocad and try with Archicad, I just change and despite being a novice, in archicad and expert in autocad, I stay with file for speed and friendliness, so that comment the drawing in 3D, Be impressed, it's like a professional sketchup, regards.

  29. Does anyone know how horizontal and vertical scroll bars are displayed in autocad 2013? I am using it for the first time and I can not move on the screen because the bars do not appear ...

  30. Hi Claudia.
    What I believe is that the new generations, if they are not taught a course as you do, will neglect the keyboard, especially in the 3D work where the commands come nested in a tab, something that could not be done before. The practice of one hand on the mouse, and the other on the keyboard is oral transmission, a user who learns alone, in an online course or in a "classic" course without having an instructor who knows the advantage, will not appropriate .
    Obviously, if we put two technicians at the same time making a flat of a house, both with equal experience, the one that uses the keyboard will do it faster.
    Although the exercise would not work if they were using a vertical version, such as Civil3D or an architectural 3D modeling.

  31. I teach AutoCAD, my students show them both ways of doing things: icons and commands. Invariably they end up choosing to work with one hand on the keyboard with aliases and the other hand on the mouse. They come out quite skilled, in particular I am very demanding with the way of working, that I work clean, precise, well and fast. I have hired several for urgent jobs, and the people who dominate the program and work with speed, always work with the abbreviated commands, some do not use a single command bar, let alone the ribbon.
    I have found no one in practice to draw fast and well based bit of icons. A lot of time is lost in scrolling, even if the scrolling is minimal (it really is not 5 cm that the mouse moves to cross the screen).
    So that the keyboard will fall into disuse will perhaps be for those who do not have the need to work competitively.

  32. I think that sometimes we demand a tool, forgetting that it has come to solve the work that we used to do from the drawing board.
    But I think that also the comparison with the routines that make other applications of the competition makes us think that the advance of AutoCAD is somewhat slow, to give an example the 3D modeling.

  33. It is the first time that I enter a forum, my name is Luis and I have the ACP AUTODESK certification, a lot of experience with the software management; I use not only AutoCAD from its version 10 but also Land, Map, Civil among others .. imagine ... The best thing that was done in that time was the introduction of the 14 version ... and then the 2000 version (the obligation of the denomination by the new millennium appears Windows 2000, office 2000 etc) from here AutoCAD starts its denomination of 4 figures, although for the experts we know that the odd versions of AutoCAD were the worst reason why the 2000 that should have been 15 started badly that immediately Autodesk Corrected certain aspects and the 2000 version appeared i and from here there were no more changes in form than in the background.
    Regarding the use of the keyboard, it is very important in clear AutoCAD that we optimize time if we use both keyboard and mouse simultaneously when drawing, well if we use a mouse designed and programmed with functions for AutoCAD.

  34. Dear Stephanie

    That's the way we humans are, personal tastes often lead us to criticism many times unproductive. But that's what this space is for, to discuss news and question limitations. Most of the things that AutoCAD does, came like this, from the questioning of users for waiting for the existing to improve.

    Greetings.

  35. Thanks for the info. Although I must say that his sarcastic ecritura is very annoying for a subject that does not merit it. Those of us who use the program know that they lack things to improve but that since it came out it was a wonderful invention or ask them to draw by hand.
    Regarding the commands, I think that most of us want to learn all the camanders, so that we can work with the “model space” as cleanly as possible and as quickly as possible. Greetings to all colleagues loads using Auto CAD! =)

  36. Very good and very useful, I leave this web that has tutorials of Autocad and Revit 2013 tutorials all free.

    Improveyourwork.blogspot.com
    There are many videos

    regards

  37. Jajaj laughs at the retrograde phrases and the fright that gives them to release the keyboard, CLARO¡i if with luck they turn on the computers and / or check the mail.

    I think they have been behind in much more ways to modernize, we should have already released the keyboard and mouse, using multi touch screens with tools much more versatile and manageable especially for the architecture and design environment.

    If I rescue what the new versions say their advances are few and almost null.

    Sl2 a PC Architect

  38. I am an architecture student, at the university where I am, they demand that we modernize with respect to the programs we use to design !! and I've worked from autodesk 2004 to 2012,
    And regardless of the improvements of interfaces and tools of work, one of the best work options is the keyboard, it is true that you must have enough skill and experience, the simple fact of running the mause removes an infinite amount of time, I think Is a solution only for people who have experience with the keyboard, new generations are accustomed to nothing more than icons!

  39. I would like you to send me the new autocad verifications as well as more efficient ways of using the tools for the time being.

  40. !!! I really do not know if those of us here are too late !! or the man without keyboard is very advanced !! I tried the new autocad after forcing myself to do it in the 2012 that for me actually in practice is a torment! for me I would stay in the 2004 or 2006 maximum! when I could work in 3d without so much process that the shade is damaged on screen and things like that ... I think we all know that this is a business and since the 2007 version they do not know what to do with the program which does not evolve at all meaningful ... they try to make it a word type that anyone can use it and that does not exist ... it has taken us all a while to master it so that it comes and a beginner tells us that in his life he must have made a project against the time that the keyboard it's obsolete ... incredible!

  41. THE NEW AUTOCAD USERS DEFINITELY SHOULD NOT LOOK LIKE “COMFORTABLE” AND EFFICIENTLY THE USE OF THE KEYBOARD, JUST THEY ARE KNOWING THE PROGRAM AND IGNORE THE TIME YOU WIN “KEYING” A LETTER AND MAKE ENTER WITH THE SPACEBAR WITHOUT MOVING LOOKING FOR AN ICON THAT, EVEN EVERY TIME APPEAR MORE ON THE DISPLAY, SOMETIMES ARE UNUSABLE AND WHAT THEY DO IS OCCUPY SCREEN SPACE.
    NO DOUBT ANY CHANGES IN AUTOCAD HAVE BEEN HIGHLIGHTS AND EVERY TIME BETTER (ESPECIALLY FOR SOMEONE LIKE ME WHO WORKED FROM THE R12) THE INTERFACE HAS BEEN IMPROVED AND ESPECIALLY THE HANDLING OF THE MEMORY (ALTHOUGH WITH THE TECHNOLOGY OF THE CURRENT PCs ANY PROGRAM CAN RUN FREELY, i7, 16GbRAM, VIDEO4Gb, ETC).
    ... I WANTED TO SEE THE SCREEN OF ONE OF THE FRIENDS WHO SAY THAT THE USE OF THE KEYBOARD IS OBSOLETE IF YOU HAVE TO WORK WITH THE CIVIL3D, FOR EXAMPLE ... THERE IS NO SPACE ON THE SCREEN BUT FOR THE CIVIL ICONS + ALL THE ICONS THAT ME IMAGINE YOU MUST USE AUTOCAD!
    GREETINGS TO ALL!

  42. Well, you must do, save as and choose the version that your client requires. Or if not, using the Autodesk true converter is free and allows conversions in different versions.

  43. HELLO,
    I WAS MAKING A DRAWINGS IN 2013 AUTOCAD BUT WHEN THEY ARE SENT TO THE CUSTOMER THEY TOLD ME THAT THEY COULD NOT OPEN WHY THEY HAVE A VERSION OF 2010 OR 2009, HOW DO I DO SO THAT YOU CAN OPEN THE DOCUMENT?

  44. Hello, someone can explain to me how I can configure the bounded in Autocad 2013. Thank you

  45. Well, greetings to all.
    The versions of Cad are good as long as they do not affect the performance of the work.
    What I do not think too logical, is to use a very modern version, secillamente for being the "last".
    I'm one of those who think that programs, while compatible with others ... pull miles.
    a greeting

  46. The second question, is done with the blocks command, search the Internet and you will see that there are furniture already made in 3D or 2D only to insert them.
    Also AutoCAD brings the Design Center, where there are also blocks.

  47. hello everyone a taste, I would like to know how to cut the maya that is done with the extrusion to make a window in the autocad 2013

    The second I would like to know how I can add simple objects for a room, I explain, when I make a kitchen I would like to put the kitchen, furniture, table, chairs, etc.

    Thank you for answering me

    PS: I would like to be sent the information to the mail

  48. Hi. I would like to know: I have the 2013 bus for mac (This in English) always saved in 2013 bus and I can not find how to set it up so that it is automatically saved in a previous version so I do not have to put it in every time I save ... Since many Sometimes I forget. In the Autocad for Windows it was very easy to put it but in the Mac there is no way to find this option ... Does anyone know anything?
    Thank you

  49. Sirs! it is time for them to update, the keyboard is already out there is very prehistoric, do not be afraid to adapt to the new icons, with the keyboard apart from that you have to know all the shortcuts of the commands you have to have a lot of skill with the same and not to say in what language you have your Autocad, English is not the same as Spanish. I work with autocad from the R14 and I have updated to all the versions that have come out until today, since they left the toolbars was the best that could have been removed and now improved with the ribbons of options (previously called Ribbon ), the commands and icons are very, very useful and it's just a matter of adaptation and making your work space more comfortable for you, therefore these tapes is not only for beginners as many mention it but also for those who are agile with the mouse, there is very little that I use the keyboard is mostly to give values, I make plans very fast and I know the commands both in English because previously they came in this language and in Spanish that nowadays it is not even necessary to look for the program in this version but simply update the language and you're done. I know the shortcuts by keyboard, but that if the Autocad has so many commands that it is impossible to learn them all as well as use them, only the most important ones are used and that is why I recommend you to let go of that keyboard and to use the mouse is what better than there is.

  50. THE KEYBOARD ALREADY FOLLOWS FASTER FOR SOME COMMANDS, YOU MUST PROVIDE THE NEW AND EVALUATE THE PERFORMANCE BY MAKING A PLAN

  51. Definitely the use of the keyboard is very useful, the new versions are adapting «shortcuts» in the same commands, as in the COPY, before in Acad2004 you had to write M later for multiple copies, but then that happened by default, the Ribbon style It makes me interesting for new users, but for more advanced ones it is annoying, at least I tried to use it in Acad2011 and I couldn't get used to it, it took me twice as long in that week that I tried to use it.
    regards

  52. Setting dimension styles should not be too complicated

  53. Have you known how the disuse of the keyboard has evolved?
    Because if you had used it when I started using AutoCAD, you will know that we wrote each command (I use AutoCAD and I teach from the R12 version). Little by little we use the keyboard less, and the shortcuts are useful, but on the way you lose time when what you do is repetitive. Hence, many commands along the way were discontinued, such as the Fence case for Trim, although there was a long time ago, as only who knew that it was necessary to enter the letter F after the Fence command, stopped evolving for little use. Things like entering vectors via directions and distances are honestly archaic.
    Undoubtedly, those of us who learned before AutoCAD 2009, learned to use the keyboard with the shortcuts and the scape key with great skill. But my question is that much of this can be improved with contextual menus.

  54. Archaic use of the keyboard? you see that you have never used autocad, working only with the keyboard is the wonder and what makes time optimal

  55. I do not think that the handling of commands by keyboard can become archaic is very practical and saves time than doing it with the "mouse" for example "zomm" "Extents"
    z enter and enter (does not take a second) and then to point to "E" with the "mouse"
    I think that you should see the way with a command or double click on the abbreviated command file (the custom) can be loaded or downloaded quickly

  56. If you want speed to make plans, it is best to set the keyboard to one letter per command and two when repeated (try to save time), use the space bar as enter. The icons are used by beginners, or only use autocad to review a piece of information, or those who stayed accustomed and are not looking for new ways.

  57. I do not understand, what is the need to complain to Autodesk about more drawing space if the use of key combination gives us access to the commands that you can configure according to your needs from the command alias, now the drawing space can be attached to the whole screen, in particular the novelties that you comment on are all old from the previous versions, and to the poor and I find nothing more relevant than the new format.

  58. I have the Autocad 2012, in the trial version and it can not be installed on my PC. An error message appears for each product, AUTODESK & INVENTOR FUSION ...
    When you begin to install NetFramework 4.0 Runtime, it stops and the cover appears with ERROR messages.
    I did a course and I approved it very well and I want to learn more every day, but I regret not being able to install the program. I have an HP 610 1262, 8 Mb RAM, Intel 5i-
    I already signed up for beta.autodesk.com, but I don't understand how to be a beta tester, if g! Can you explain it to me, to be able to download Autocad 2013, maybe it doesn't trouble me…
    Thank you.

  59. Sign up at beta.autodesk.com and there they will give you the information. Well, those who participate as beta testers accept certain rules when they are accepted and maintained as such.

  60. Good afternoon, some of you have installed AutoCAD 2013 Beta RC. Would you like to please give me the Product Key, which I need to install it?

  61. Of course, it's one thing to use shortcuts:
    L + enter
    Z + enter + x + enter

    But before arriving at this, practically every command was written.

    However, I consider that there are things about the operation of commands that can be simplified, especially when they are repetitive routines. For that matter, write individual line text, you should always be indicating the size and orientation, when it could be something more practical.

  62. 'Prehistoric use of the keyboard' is the use that is made today. It seems that no one notices the kilometers that are made on the screen,
    Simply by moving the mouse to go to the command (icon) and then return to where you are drawing. Not to mention the on-screen site that all the bars, tapes, etc. are all about.
    It takes space to draw, and teach people that you can work with both hands, with abbreviated commands, etc.
    Regards

  63. Thanks for the information, but you can see that you do not know how useful it is to work on the keyboard and how fast you can draw, saving being clicking and looking for the icons to do something and not only in autocad but in all the programs, I say this from experience and also because I have seen many professionals who work with pure commands with the keyboard and their speed to draw is greater than someone who works only with the mouse and icons. Greetings.

  64. Autocad needs to boost the work in double line, in addition to an automatic intersection. Expand cutting tools, in short, develop the advanced work in 2d.

  65. Greetings:

    Certain modifications and autocad 2012 has them, regarding the comment of leaving the keyboard seems naive. every day it is more confusing to work in new interfaces, however the keyboard shortcuts always remain so it does not matter where the keyboard is always the wonder.
    I'm about to see what effects these new things have on the autocad architecture that is what I really use. thanks for the info

  66. Several of the tools you point out that are new, were already available in 2012 versions and some in 2011, such as point cloud support, and let's not say the text color and transparency for the command line. Another command that is not new is Presspull. I think you are not so updated ...
