Compared with the standard AutoCAD software, this new release delivers a 63% productivity gain for AutoCAD tasks completed with the help of a specialised toolset. This productivity boost is attributed to the software’s included specialised tool sets and enhanced automation. The solution’s dedicated web and mobile apps allow users to achieve maximum connectivity and collaboration, whether in the office or on-site. Distributed across Africa by WorldsView, the 2023 release will be available in April 2022.
AutoCAD 2023 enhancements include seven specialised tool sets (mechanical, electrical, MEP, Map 3D, raster design, Plant 3D and architecture), featuring libraries of over 750 000 symbols, parts and detail components. The new release also offers superior industry-specific, rules-driven workflows, and design automation. Graphics and 3D objects are rendered up to ten times faster than before, shaded with edges and wireframe visual styles. With the LISP web API, it’s easy to automate web app workflow steps, enabling greater efficiency and productivity.
The most highly anticipated new AutoCAD 2023 features and functions include:
- Trace: enables users to add design changes, notes and markups from their desktop, the web and the mobile apps.
- Markup import and markup assist: enables users to automatically import feedback and incorporate collaborative changes to drawings – even from printed drawings – with a few clicks, without additional drawing steps.
- Count: automates the counting of blocks or objects within a selected area throughout a drawing, with a menu to identify objects or navigate easily through counted objects.
- Sheet set manager: allows users to send controlled copies of drawings to team mates anywhere, for quick and safe collaboration.
AutoCAD subscribers will benefit from access, technical support, and remote assistance to online resources.
