What's New

AutoCAD Architecture: Room Documentation

Room Documentation
The Roombook feature enables multiple finishes to be applied per surface, then calculates these surfaces (walls, floors, and ceilings), as well as room circumference and furnishing elements, for enhanced room documentation. You can create a detail schedule easily within AutoCAD Architecture for each surface and export the data to a Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheet, or export a DWF™ file to Autodesk Quantity Takeoff (QTO) software for cost estimating.

Layer Key component display in architectural software by Autodesk

Layer Key Component Display
The Display Properties dialog has the capability to display all components and control the visibility of specific components in a drawing. Set the display component to inherit the layer name from the current Layer Key Style to get a cleaner, more organized set of documentation.

AutoCAD Architecture: Transparency Integration

Transparency Integration
Easy-to-use transparency controls for individual display components enable you to determine how you want to define each component.

Schedule table enhancement in architectural software by Autodesk

Schedule Table Enhancement
This powerful scheduling feature is now enhanced to enable grouping and subtotaling, so you can organize the schedule table based on your project needs. Group, format, and subtotal similar data at different levels, and export grouped and subtotaled schedules to Microsoft Excel.

AutoCAD Architecture: Content & Catalog Browser Migration

Content & Catalog Browser Migration
The custom settings dialog enables you to more easily migrate the content catalog from previous releases to AutoCAD Architecture 2013 architectural software. Any new settings introduced into the catalogs in the latest release will automatically be added to legacy catalogs when they are migrated.

AutoCAD Architecture: Hatch display components enhancements in architectural software by Autodesk

Hatch Display Components Enhancements
The hatch display component has a new annotative property that enables the scale of the hatch pattern to respond to the annotation scale.

IFC Enhancements in Autodesk Architectural Software

Industry Foundation Class (IFC) Enhancements
AutoCAD Architecture 2013 continues to improve on Industry Foundation Class (IFC) file format support, including recertification from buildingSMART for importing and exporting version 2x3 IFC files. Toolkit enhancements make it easier to migrate changes from one release to another.

AutoCAD Architecture: Geometry Sharing Performance Enhancement

Geometry Sharing Performance Enhancement
This enhancement enables you to begin working while the drawing is still regenerating. You can work more efficiently, as you no longer have to wait for the entire drawing to finish regenerating to get started.

Features: Design & Documentation

AutoCAD Architecture: Sections & Elevations

Sections & Elevations
Generate 2D sections and elevations with material hatching directly from your floor plans. If your design changes, AutoCAD® Architecture architectural drawing software generates fully updated section and elevation graphics, maintaining layer, color, linetype, and other properties.

AutoCAD Architecture: Walls, Doors & Windows

Walls, Doors & Windows
Draw and document using walls, doors, and windows that mimic real-world behavior and construction. Modify walls and their endcap conditions on a component level for improved handling of common wall conditions, such as angled, cornered, or intersecting fire-rated walls. Insert and place doors or windows into your architectural drawings with more precise control. When you move any wall, all connected walls and spaces automatically update. Use familiar AutoCAD architectural drafting commands such as Fillet and Chamfer on flexible wall components.

AutoCAD Architecture: Detail Creation & Annotation

Detail Creation & Annotation
Document and annotate architectural drawings faster with the robust library of detail components and powerful keynoting tools. Automate the creation of details and maintain consistent annotation. When your architectural details are complete, you can generate keynote legends in just a few clicks.

AutoCAD Architecture: Streamlined User Interface

Streamlined User Interface
AutoCAD Architecture software, the version of AutoCAD® software for architects, features a sleek user interface that offers optimized desktop organization, a larger drawing window, and improved access to tools and commands you need. Find your favorite tools faster, locate lesser-used tools more efficiently, and discover new features more easily. The user interface design is consistent across many Autodesk products.

AutoCAD Architecture: Integrated Rendering

Integrated Rendering
Bring architectural designs to life for impressive client presentations at any stage. Streamlined visualization capabilities are fully integrated into the AutoCAD Architecture workflow. Accelerate architectural review cycles by publishing directly to DWF™ or DWFx file formats.

AutoCAD Architecture: Wall Dimensioning

Wall Dimensioning
With AutoCAD Architecture AEC Dimensions, you can dimension any wall and all its components according to your own dimensioning standards, including wall stud centerlines and faces. Associative dimensions automatically update as your designs change, eliminating the need for manual updates.

AutoCAD Architecture: Scheduling

Easily customize the look of out-of-the-box schedule styles to meet your company's standards. Or create new schedules from scratch, complete with your required calculations. Schedules link directly to your designs and can update instantly to reflect design changes.

AutoCAD Architecture: Space Tagging & Documentation

Space Tagging & Documentation
Automatically tag every room in your architectural drawing, complete with room areas. When you change the bounding elements, spaces update automatically, saving you time and helping to make documentation more accurate. Space definitions can include offsets from bounding elements based on preset rules or rules you define, enabling area calculations that reflect a variety of industry standards, including BOMA, DIN, and SIS.

Features: Renovation

AutoCAD Architecture: Architectural Renovation

Architectural Renovation
The building renovation tools in AutoCAD Architecture architectural drafting software help you to speed the design and production of renovation projects. The tools enable you to graphically represent design changes to existing buildings as existing, new, or demolished and coordinate renovation drawing views.

AutoCAD Architecture: Point cloud support

Point Cloud Support
Bring your 3D scans to life, streamlining time-consuming renovation and restoration projects. With point cloud 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. AutoCAD Architecture also includes support for larger point set displays, the ability to extract shapes, and API enhancements.
