Portable Autodesk AUTOCAD 2021 R47.0.0 (x64)
Autodesk AutoCAD Portable design and documentation software, of the world’s leading 2D and 3D CAD tools. It will allow you to design and shape the world around you using its powerful and flexible features. Speed documentation, share ideas seamlessly, and explore ideas more intuitively in 3D. With thousands of available add-ons, AutoCAD software provides the ultimate in flexibility, customized for your specific needs. It’s time to take design further.
AutoCAD Portable enables you to create and explore ideas like never before. It is all you need to create, visualize, document, and share your ideas. From conceptual design through drafting and detailing.
AutoCAD Portable is full of new features built for the way you work and automation to boost your productivity in the process. A subscription to AutoCAD including specialized toolsets gives you access to seven industry-specific toolsets, such as Architecture and Electrical, which can automate tasks and save you hours, even days, of valuable time. Check out our productivity studies to learn more.
With state-of-the-art AutoCAD web and mobile apps included with an AutoCAD subscription, users can access AutoCAD on virtually any device to design and draft with the most up-to-date files, in the field and on the go.
There is so much to experience with AutoCAD Portable. The new Drawing History feature can be a game changer for your workflow, giving you insights on the evolution of your drawings. Now, you can use the popular DWG Compare feature for external references (Xrefs) attached to your drawing. Graphics performance is further enhanced. And you can stay connected to your block content anytime, anywhere.
There is a brand-new integration with Google Drive. Anyone can now open DWG files stored in Google Drive directly in the AutoCAD web app using their Autodesk ID. AutoCAD subscribers are also able to edit and save those files back to their Google Drive, enabling customers to work from anywhere. Of course, you can also view, edit, and save DWG files and Xrefs with the AutoCAD web and mobile apps using Autodesk’s cloud.
“Our subscribers will really appreciate what our development teams have been working on to modernize AutoCAD based on their feedback,” says Marcus O’Brien, Director of AutoCAD product management. “This new release delivers enhancements and features that will make a difference in efficiency and productivity right away.”
Now let’s take a closer look at what’s new in AutoCAD 2021
The TRIM and EXTEND commands have been changed to make the workflow quicker. It utilises a previously optional method which has now been made the default way of operating.
At first, I wasn’t sure if this `new look’ was quicker but after awhile it does begin to feel more efficient. What I like, is if the new method isn’t to your liking, both TRIM and EXTEND can be reconfigured to the original way of operating which is, `Standard’ as opposed to `Quick’. The trimming of lines across hatch patterns to their boundaries is a real time saver. Again, this can be reconfigured to the original method with the addition of a new system variable called `TRIMEDGES’.
REVCLOUD has been given a long overdue update. For those who use this command frequently it’s always been frustrating. Arc lengths are nearly always the wrong size. Now, this shouldn’t be the case anymore. It uses the size of the drawing area to automatically set the arc length to a more appropriate size. Of course, it might not always be perfect, but the change required should only be minimal.
To help make changes much easier than previous versions, REVCLOUD’s are now recognised as such and no longer as a Polyline. So, how is that beneficial? There is a setting within the Object Properties Palette, ‘Arc Length’, which enables changes to be made to the REVCLOUD quicker than in previous releases.
BREAKATPOINT is a new command which enables a break to be made at a specific point along a Line, Arc or open Polyline.
BREAKATPOINT has two major enhancements. Firstly, it works, both accurately, reliably and far better than the previous method of doing this using the Break command. Secondly, it’s a repeatable command by either pressing Enter, Return or Spacebar. I was always hesitant to teach the old method owing to its unreliability and quirky way of not operating as expected. Not any longer!
When I first saw QUICK MEASURE within AutoCAD 2020, I was very impressed. Well it just got better. I’m even more impressed. It now has the capability, to very quickly, display area and perimeter information.
Simply clicking within a closed boundary, area and perimeter information instantly appears. If these enclosed areas include further closed areas (Islands) these will be automatically detected and removed from the calculation. Pressing the Shift Key enables multiple closed boundaries to be selected and cumulative area and perimeter data displayed. The same key removes already selected areas and the data updated accordingly.
DWG HISTORY utilises the drawing history benefits of the following cloud storage providers, ONE DRIVE, DROP BOX and BOX. The cloud storage provider sets the number of versions stored and manages when they will expire.
When signed into your Autodesk account and opening a drawing for the first time, from the cloud storage area, a balloon notification appears in the lower right corner indicating previous versions of that drawing can be compared using the DRAWING HISTORY palette. The DRAWING HISTORY palette lists previous versions and when each is selected uses the DWG COMPARE utility to show the differences between that and the current drawing.
