Get to Know AutoCAD 2022 – Pushing design forward
AutoCAD 2022 drive designs forward with automated and connected workflows, includes industry-specific toolsets and AutoCAD web and mobile apps. Let’s dive into how you can benefit from what’s new in AutoCAD 2022.
Streamline drawing review cycles with Trace
Trace improves digital collaboration, letting you work with collaborators on any device. You and your collaborators can markup DWG files without altering the existing drawing. Your collaborators, for example, can create a Trace in the web or mobile app and mark up design changes they want to see. The Trace can then be opened in AutoCAD on the desktop, where you can automatically see the feedback in the context of the DWG file and incorporate the changes. It’s a multiplatform digital workflow that lets you collaborate with your team wherever they are and streamlines the drawing review cycle.
Improve your collaboration process with Share
With Share, you can now securely share your drawings with your team and colleagues directly from AutoCAD. Using Share, you can select levels of access, such as “view-only” or “edit,” and send controlled copies of drawings to your team. You can generate Share links from AutoCAD and the AutoCAD web app. And the links open directly in the AutoCAD web app. Share gives you more control and is a secure way to digitally collaborate with your team anytime, anywhere.
Increase accuracy through automation with Count
Today’s work demands continuous innovation, and it’s all about automation. Count automates the counting of blocks or geometry to save you time and reduce errors. You can export data to a dynamic table and get updates quickly. By cutting down on manual counting, you can avoid miscounting parts or ordering incorrect quantities.
“Count will save an immense amount of time by eliminating the block counting exercises within the drawing while removing human errors. It’s a huge win.” – Chad, Corporate CAD Coordinator
Improve efficiency with Push to Autodesk Docs
Push to Autodesk Docs improves workflow efficiency within the Autodesk ecosystem by allowing you to publish CAD drawing sheets as PDFs directly from AutoCAD to Autodesk Docs. You no longer need to save PDFs locally, open a web browser, or upload the sheets to the cloud.
View and edit multiple drawings at the same time with Floating windows
You asked for a way to view and edit multiple drawings at the same time in a single instance of AutoCAD—with the new Floating windows, you can. Floating windows are a game-changer for your work. It lets you conveniently pull away drawing tabs to view them as fully functional windows side by side, or on multiple monitors in the same instance of AutoCAD.
“With floating windows, you can do your work within a split second versus waiting to open AutoCAD again and find the drawing. Now, you just click, drag, and you’re done.” – Brett, Drafting Technician III
Connect to Autodesk Drive and Autodesk Docs
With the AutoCAD web and mobile apps, you can access your files in the cloud. This year, we added Autodesk Drive and Autodesk Docs connections to the AutoCAD web app, so you can conveniently connect to your files within the Autodesk ecosystem. With these new integrations, you can take advantage of anytime access to any DWG file with AutoCAD.
Enhancements and improved performance
AutoCAD 2022 offers enhancements that include a faster and customisable installation letting you even work in AutoCAD while the program is being installed. With the new installation, the typical number of interactions to install the product has been reduced. You can also enjoy improved graphics performance and a redesigned start tab that allows you to easily access files and other helpful content directly from the home screen.
