Design, Visualize, Document, Share
Design, visualize, and document your ideas clearly and efficiently with AutoCAD® software. From conceptual design through drafting and detailing, AutoCAD 2007 enables you to explore ideas like never before. Create, edit, and develop design alternatives using realistic solids and surfaces in an updated design environment. Communicate your ideas with powerful sketch, shadow, and rendering tools, including intuitive walk-through animations. Then turn your concepts into a set of documents with the new section and flatten functionality. It’s all here, whether you’re creating, exploring, managing, or communicating, AutoCAD keeps you on time, on budget, and on track.
Realize your ideas with efficiency and clarity, from conceptual design through drafting and detailing. Whether you’re creating solids and surfaces, studying the effects of lighting on your design, exploring design alternatives with walk-through animations, or producing an entire sheet set, AutoCAD® 2007 software has the tools to make it happen quickly and accurately.
Autodesk provides a complete set of tools to help designers clearly convey their design vision to clients and then quickly and accurately document those visions so that projects are completed on time and within budget. AutoCAD® 2005 built on the dramatic productivity gains of AutoCAD® 2004 software by adding tools that help designers efficiently manage sets of drawings. AutoCAD® 2006 enabled designers to work even faster and smarter on a wide range of day-to-day tasks with powerful new drafting features such as Dynamic Blocks and Dynamic Input.
Now, AutoCAD 2007 focuses on improving designers’ ability to create, navigate, and edit a conceptual design, clearly present the design to a nontechnical audience, and then easily document the design using all the powerful AutoCAD drafting tools. AutoCAD 2007 provides a huge productivity boost to users who currently do conceptual design in AutoCAD and to users who would like to do so. The common set of underlying technology “engines” and enhanced interface tools mean interoperability and cross-training between AutoCAD and Autodesk® products such as Autodesk® Revit® Building and Autodesk Inventor® software applications has never been better.
