    AutoCAD

    Created by Autodesk, AutoCAD is industry-leading software for 2D and 3D CAD and drafting. Versions of the program are available for both Microsoft Windows, and once again (after an absence for some years), the Apple Macintosh.

    The software includes an extensive set of customization tools, including scripting languages (AutoLISP, VBA, and others), and interfaces for programmers (APIs) including a C++ programming interface (ObjectARX). As a result, there are many freely available tools for AutoCAD users, as well as commercial products compatible with the software. Autodesk themselves have used the ObjectARX interface to produce vertical/discipline specific enhancements to AutoCAD such as AutoCAD Architecture (for architectural drawings), AutoCAD Civil (for civil engineers), AutoCAD Electrical (for electrical controls), etc.

    The popularity of AutoCAD means that its file formats (DWG and DXF) have become defacto standards for CAD interoperability. To some extent this popularity has even extended into the customization tools, and competitors have even tried to produce customization features compatible/similar to AutoCAD's own tools, such as their own versions of AutoLISP or ObjectARX.

    The full version of AutoCAD is quite expensive, so AutoCAD also do offer a cheaper (but reduced functionality) version of the program - AutoCAD LT. There are numerous differences between the full version of AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT, but some of the most important omissions in AutoCAD LT are the 3D capabilities, and customization features such as VBA, AutoLISP and ObjectARX.

    • Get efficient plotting through a streamlined plot user interface
    Product Description:
    The product images shown are for illustration purposes only and may not be an exact representation of the product. This Stand-Alone Permanent Version is for personal use only, and can not be used for an upgrade. Permanent version means it will never expire and does NOT require a subscription to continue using. Works on all 32 and 64 bit windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP and 2000. No Watermarks. Create, modify, render, and navigate 3D objects with AutoCAD 2007. AutoCAD is a software application for 2D and 3D designs and drafting. AutoCAD 2007 has come up with a new panel which has included many design tools this panel is known as dashboard. Dashboard includes many tools which are useful for creating and editing different designs. Creating a pyramid shaped object was never easy before the release of 2007 version. AutoCAD 2007 gives you the luxury to make such complex object with ease all you need to do is to give a newly added PYRAMID command. With this command making pyramid is as easy as creating a polygon. All you need to do is to provide some basic characteristics of pyramid like number sides top and base radius as well as height. Creating a helical shape is hell of a job and all the engineers as well as designers know how difficult it is to tackle with these objects. AutoCAD 2007 is there again to assist you and can save your day. Helical shapes can be created with ease by just indicating some basic properties of helix like height, number of turns top/base radii etc. AutoCAD 2007 is giving you to look all around in 360 degrees by adding a new 3DSWIVEL command. With the block authoring tools, you can add dynamic behavior to existing block libraries simplifying use of block libraries and reducing time spent manipulating blocks in a drawing. The software makes it easy to change any table property and creates table data with a variety of formatting options. The AutoCAD 2007 Visual Styles tools relate to all elements associated with the AutoCAD 3D display.
