1. Work Natively
Get the robust 3D free-form design tools and powerful drafting capabilities you expect from AutoCAD® in an intuitive Mac® interface. With AutoCAD® for Mac® software, you have the ability to go big with bold designs. Experience the power, flexibility, and accuracy of AutoCAD on your platform of choice.
2. Operate Effortlessly
AutoCAD for Mac takes full advantage of the Mac OS® X platform—the intuitive, graphical user interface makes it easier to bring your ideas to life. Take advantage of the familiar Mac environment as you draw and manage layouts using controls that work like you think. Pan and zoom intuitively with Multi-Touch gestures and find your designs quickly by using Cover Flow navigation to flip through graphical previews of your files.
3. Design in 3D
Explore your design ideas with intuitive tools that help you transform concepts into reality. Simply push and pull faces, edges, and vertices to model complex shapes. Refine mesh surfaces and create high-precision NURBS curves and surfaces to actualize anything you can imagine.
4. Skip the Rework
Because it’s AutoCAD, you’re working natively in DWG™, one of the world’s most common file formats. Share files easily and confidently with clients, suppliers, and partners around the world, regardless of platform. Reclaim design time and increase productivity by avoiding the complications of messy translators and hours wasted cleaning up converted data. With AutoCAD for Mac, you get right into your design. And with 100% DWG compatibility, files created in previous versions of AutoCAD will open seamlessly in AutoCAD for Mac.
5. Boost Productivity
External reference capabilities in AutoCAD for Mac let you easily reuse data and collaborate with others on projects. When you modify elements in one file, they are easily updated in all related design files. Go ahead and divvy up large project components and work on them simultaneously to maximize efficiency.
6. Visualize Your Ideas
AutoCAD for Mac transforms your designs into images that convey the beauty and nuances of your ideas. Powerful rendering tools let you choose from hundreds of materials, apply photometric lighting, and control the display to create highly accurate, photorealistic images.
7. Slash Revision Time
Define persistent object relationships and your design adjusts automatically as you draw—parallel lines stay parallel, concentric circles stay centered. AutoCAD for Mac provides tools for both geometric and dimensional constraints, so you can handle revision requests in less time, with less hassle.
8. Customize Your Software
Customizing AutoCAD for Mac to meet your specific needs can be easier than you think. Configure settings, extend the software, and build custom workflows. Develop your own application, or leverage existing ones. There’s no need to choose between flexibility and power—with AutoCAD for Mac, you can get both.
9. Extend Your Reach
AutoCAD for Mac software provides a flexible development platform that lets you create specialized design and drafting applications—such as industry-specific software or add-on applications from partner developers. Or use AutoCAD for Mac software as an interface for other applications.
10. Ease Your Learning Curve
If you’re a long-time AutoCAD expert, you’ll feel at home with AutoCAD for Mac—the commands and tools you use everyday work here too. And if you haven’t used AutoCAD in years, don’t worry. The intuitive interface and context-sensitive help function in AutoCAD for Mac can help smooth out your learning curve. Regardless of your background, you can spend less time on the software and more time on the design.
