Model Documentation Tools : Import a wide variety of other formats including SolidWorks?, Pro/ENGINEER?, CATIA?, Rhino, and NX?. Drawing views, edge display, and location are instantly updated when an engineering change is made.
3D Free-Form Design Tools : With tools for surface, solid, and mesh modeling, AutoCAD 2012 provides the utmost flexibility and control when designing in 3D.
Autodesk Inventor Fusion : Adds to the 3D conceptual design capabilities of AutoCAD and sets a new standard for professional 3D modeling ease of use.
Parametric Drawing : you can infer geometric constraints in real time—as you draw—eliminating the need to manually define all of your object relationships.
Point Cloud Support : Bring your 3D scans to life, streamlining time-consuming renovation and restoration projects. With support for up to 2 billion points, you can quickly visualize and snap to the surface of your scanned objects directly within your modeling workspace.
Associative Array Functionality : Save valuable rework time by establishing and maintaining a set of relationships between arrayed objects, such as windows on a building or trusses on a bridge. Plus, you can now array objects along a specified path (rather than just rectangular or polar options), saving even more time when creating conceptual designs or finished documentation.
PDF Support : Sharing and reusing designs has never been easier thanks to robust PDF support within AutoCAD 2012. With TrueType font support, import and underlay capabilities, and powerful publishing capabilities, AutoCAD 2012 helps facilitate clear communication when using PDF.
