AutoCAD 2006, the 20th release of AutoCAD software, increases efficiency with across-the-board improvements to bring productivity up and lag time down.
AutoCAD® 2006 is a software to realize your ideas with maximum speed, power, and efficiency.
Beginning with dramatically smaller file sizes in AutoCAD® 2004, and continuing with the Sheet Set Manager in AutoCAD® 2005, Autodesk is raising the bar on productivity once again with AutoCAD 2006. From the new dynamic blocks capability that allows you to quickly create, manipulate, and extract data from blocks, to heads-up design, which keeps your focus on your work rather than on the software,
AutoCAD 2006 makes an impact on the way you work, every single day.
Blocks are a lot smarter in this release. As designs become more complex, block libraries grow. And as block libraries grow, data becomes difficult to manage.
AutoCAD 2006 puts the control back where it belongs—with you. Dynamic blocks dramatically reduce cumbersome block libraries and enable you to modify block geometry during insertion with new grips and action features.
AutoCAD 2006 helps you no longer have to shift your focus between your drawing and the command line. In addition to the traditional method of entering information,
AutoCAD 2006 puts the power of the command line at the graphics cursor, where you can enter dimensional and command option information as you work. Also new in this release are customizable tool palettes. Whether you want commands, blocks, macros, company standards, or LISP routines, you can have the content you use every day, organized the way you use it.
What's New in AutoCAD 2006
Boost your everyday productivity with these new features:
Dynamic blocks give you more drafting control and flexibility over your current blocks, allowing greater manipulation while dramatically reducing the size of block libraries.
Improved annotation and composition features help streamline the creation, placement, and editing of textual and table information and greatly enhance hatching capabilities.
The enhanced user interface puts the power of the command line at the graphics cursor, where you can enter dimensional and command option information as you work and get immediate feedback.
Migration tools streamline the migration process, so you can upgrade easily while preserving customization of toolbars and menus.
