Introduction & User Manual
The color and shape of this block was adjusted in the 3D view. The number of “guide dots” around this circle was changed in the 3D view. The selection area was selected in the 3D view. The dimensions of this block were changed in the 3D view.
A function of the first AutoCAD release was a new way to use three-dimensional (3D) objects, the “point-based” method. When creating a 3D drawing, instead of moving a pencil or other graphic device and then moving the object, the point-based method is used. Instead of using a standard method of moving objects based on the dimensionally displayed surface of an object, this technique moves a 3D cursor directly onto a 3D object.
When a user moves the cursor around in the 3D view, points are displayed around the object. The user selects a point, and the object changes to the dimensions of the point. The user moves the point in the x, y, or z direction, and the point moves along with the object. You can create standard geometric shapes and use them with this method. This tutorial uses the point-based method to create a helix of varying heights and depths.
Let’s begin with an example to show how the Point-Based Method works. A user creates an angled line, a 3D helix. A 3D helix is made up of a series of lines. A line is a series of points. The points are evenly spaced along the line. The 3D line is created by starting at a single point, moving the cursor along the line, and clicking at each new location. Moving the cursor in any direction causes the helix to change height and/or depth.

Select a Command
AutoCAD begins with the command line selected. You can select a command line with a keyboard shortcut or click the command button at the top-left corner of the display.
The command line displays the options available with this command. Note that you can select more than one command at a time with a keyboard shortcut.
Activate the 3D View
Click on the View tab.
Select 3D View
Select 3D View and you will see the 3D View menu.
AutoCAD 2012 had many improvements compared to AutoCAD 2010. In particular, it has been built with 64-bit architecture. It also has improved import-export functionality for DWG drawings, increased template customization, and other improvements. Among the notable improvements in functionality are:
New eXpress Tools for importing or exporting DWG files, as well as “Send to DWG” and “File D-Base” buttons (in various toolbars) that allow users to easily send DWG files to other applications
The ability to use DWG templates that are organized by project, instead of by drawing, with the new ‘Design Template’ option
One-click generation of either DXF or PDF files from a DWG file, for importing into other software
Improved HTML/XML-based exporting, for exchanging drawing information in both human-readable and machine-readable formats, such as DXF, DWG, PDF, SVG and Visio. (Supported by the DXF file format version 2.0).
The ability to associate the active model layer to a specific layer and view in the new Display Layer option.
The ability to save 3D objects (3D models), such as walls, in DWG format.
A new Shape selection tool that is available from the main drawing window toolbar.
A new right-click context menu containing some drawing functions and file commands.
An improved XML editor that allows creating and editing XML files with inline editing of the contents.
A new Guide editing and annotation tool, which can be accessed by right-clicking on any object in the drawing window.
In 2012, AutoCAD had a new plug-in architecture, which allowed for improved stability. Each plug-in is a class in the plug-in manager.
The Developer Workshop is released for AutoCAD 2011 and 2012, which can be found in the online AppCenter. In it, an Autodesk developer can find a reference manual, tutorials, samples, how-to’s, API and programming guides.
AutoCAD 2013 had new features, such as:
3D modeling, with the new Surface View, Wireframe View and Hidden Surface tools.
Improvements to XML document formats. (A new XML editor was added for editing XML files.)
Improvements to the Display Templates dialog.
Improvements to Visio integration with AutoCAD.
Improvements to the Web Topology Builder.
