"A popular program that is used to create 2D and 3D professional designs"
Written By

AutoCAD 2012 is a program that is used for computer-aided design (CAD), and to make 2D and 3D drawings. It was first released in 1982 and it is still considered as one of the best CAD programs available today. The program can be used to create and design schemes, maps, plans and many other things. It isn't the easiest tool for beginners to use, but tutorials have been included.

AutoCAD 2012 has received many new features and improvements. One of these new features is AutoCAD WS, this allows you to store all your work on an online server. You will have to get an account to be able to upload your drawings. You can view your drawings on a mobile device or from your computer. It also has basic editing tools and allows you to use basic commands.

The developers have improved the snap mode: it now only restricts your cursor on certain areas. You can now nudge objects; simply select the object, hold [Ctrl] button and you will be able to move it with your arrow keys. Every time you press an arrow key, it will move the object by two pixels. There has been a button included that will delete duplicate or overlapping items. This will 'clean' your drawings, giving them a professional look. The 'DesignCenter' has been improved and renamed to 'Content Explorer'. New buttons have been added, there is are new 3D perspectives and many small changes have been made to give you a better experience.
