Today March 22, 2018 is the day, AutoCAD 2019 was announced and now available for subscribers.
While there were many updates including 200+ dialog boxes and other User Interface elements have been updated and other requested updates and fixes, the biggest theme is:
AutoCAD now includes industry-specific features and libraries for architecture, mechanical design, electrical design, and more.
- Automate floor plans, sections, elevations, and other drawings.
- Draw piping, plumbing, and ducting for faster design with mechanical tools.
- Design ductwork, electrical conduit, and circuiting for HVAC, plumbing, and electrical with MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing).
When you subscribe to AutoCAD 2019, you will gain access to the following toolsets:
Use specialized building design features and 8,000+ intelligent architectural objects and styles to speed architectural drawing and documentation. Automate floorplans, sections, elevations, and other drawings with our architectural toolset.
Use specialized mechanical design features and 700,000+ intelligent manufacturing parts, features and symbols to speed product design. Automate tasks, such as generating machine components and creating bills of material.
Use specialized electrical design features and 65,000+ intelligent electrical symbols to boost productivity for creating, modifying, and documenting electrical controls systems. Quickly design panel layouts, schematic diagrams, and other drawings with our electrical toolset.
Use specialized MEP engineering features and 10,500+ intelligent mechanical, electrical, and plumbing objects to draft, design, and document building systems. Easily design ductwork, electrical conduit, and circuiting for HVAC, plumbing, and electrical with our MEP toolset.
Use the specialized plant design and engineering toolset to efficiently produce P&IDs and then integrate them into a 3D plant design model. Quickly create schematic diagrams, plant layouts, and other drawings with our 3D plant toolset.
Incorporate GIS and CAD data to support planning, design, and data management. Access spatial data stored in files, databases and web services, and aggregate it with your AutoCAD design data. Easily manage your GIS data with standard data schema, automated business workflows, and report templates for Electric North America, Electric Europe, Water, Wastewater, and Gas industries in our 3D mapping toolset.
Use raster to vector tools to help you edit scanned drawings and convert raster images into DWG objects. Quickly edit, cleanup and transform images, manipulate raster entities (images, lines, arcs, and circles), create vector shapes (lines and polylines), and more with our raster design toolset.
When you subscribe to AutoCAD 2019, you gain access to the new AutoCAD web and mobile apps. These apps provide fast, seamless access to DWG files wherever you are, from virtually any device. Files load quickly, and you can draft, edit, measure, and annotate with the core tools and technology of original AutoCAD. These powerful features make it possible to continue your CAD work with the most up-to-date files while on-the-go.
The new AutoCAD web app is included when you subscribe to AutoCAD 2019 including specialized toolsets.
For the first time, you can access original AutoCAD directly in your web browser. With the AutoCAD web app, edit, create, and view your CAD drawings in a simplified web interface from any laptop. There’s nothing to download — just type in web.autocad.com and login with your Autodesk account.
