AutoCAD 2019 and 2019.1
AutoCAD is a CAD (Computer-Aided Design) software that engineers, architects, and other professionals rely on to create precise 2D and 3D drawings.
The AutoCAD 2019 version was released on April 2018.
The AutoCAD 2019.1 version was released after the 2019. It has some other additional features than 2019.
Features of AutoCAD 2019
The new features of AutoCAD update 2019 are listed below:
- Cyber security
Due to the emergence of the cyber security threats, the AutoCAD security feature team continue to recommend their user to install AutoCAD based updates as they become available.
- Performance initiative
The additional features continue to improve the 2D and 3D graphics performance. The performance gain also depends on the system resources, the size, and content of the drawing.
- Save to AutoCAD web and mobile
We can access our online drawing files with commands, Save to Web & Mobile, and Open from Web & Mobile.
We can edit and view our drawings with an internet connection anywhere in the world through the desktop, web, and mobile app. The subscription of AutoCAD provides us with the editing capabilities from the web and mobile devices.
- DWG compare
It allows highlighting the differences in the model space between two revisions of the same or different drawings. We can also differentiate the unique and common objects of each drawing using colors.
We can also exclude the objects to be compared by turning off the corresponding layer.
The primary commands are:
- Shared views
We can share our designs using the Shared views feature. It extracts data from our current drawing, stores in the cloud, and generates a link. We can share that link with our colleagues or clients anywhere in the world.
To access files in the link, the receiver can use Autodesk viewer (operates from their browser) to comment, view, review, and markup views from web-enabled PC, tablet, or mobile device.
The new features of AutoCAD update 2019.1 are listed below:
The improved performance with respect to handling external files such as font files, xrefs, and other ancillary files when they are absent or are in a location with slow access.
