like Filleting Edges of 3D Solids, and coloring, moving, rotating and offsetting individual faces of 3D solids.
- Patterns along paths - NEW
- Utilize the new Pattern commands to create copies of specified objects along a path. The established path can be in various shapes,
such as a line, polyline, arc, circle, ellipse, or spline, plus the alignment options will control the pattern's final appearance.
- Centerline construction - NEW
- Establish exacting centerlines between pairs of lines, arcs, and polyline segments and even set the extension for centerlines to
exceed the shapes that define the contour. Best of all, the specific LineStyle for centerlines is assigned automatically.
- Trimming options - NEW
- Cut quickly with confidence using the handy Trim and PowerTrim tools to precisely edit hatches and solid, single-color or multicolor-
gradient fills. Once the divisions are made, the resulting hatch and color fills will maintain their association to subsequent boundary objects
and remain as one object.

them. In addition, it can display a list of suggested command and variable names that will contain your typed substring.
- SplitDimension - NEW
- Divide lines wherever needed with the ability to split dimension and extension lines of dimension objects where they cross other
shapes. Conversely, you can also rejoin dimension and extension lines that were previously split.
- Object moves - NEW
- Use the ChangeSpace command to move objects, such as a title block or part list, from your Model workspace to a Layout sheet or vice
versa. During the command process, the selected objects will be scaled within the new workspace to maintain its visual appearance.
- EditXBlockAttribute -NEW
- Modify the BlockAttribute values and properties of your inserted Blocks within any drawing to display relevant information about a
particular piece or component as text, such as a quantity, weight or other characteristic. With this new functionality, you can also format the
attribute text so it will be visibly different and separate from other attributes in the drawing.
- Quick Input
- Establish a command interface in your project using the cursor in the drawing area. It's an efficient and time-saving feature that
brings commands directly to the cursor so when you move it, the tooltips track and enable input of coordinate positions, lengths, angles, lines
and more – when and where you need it.
- Layer tools
- Work in a consistent manner with Layer Preview and Layer transparency features to align project elements, including drawing
components from the recent versions of AutoCAD .DWG files.
- Layer States Manager
- Keep the layers in perfect order by using the Layer States dialog. Save in a LayerState to manage the appearance of design components
with named layer states, turn them on and off, and switch between displays. It will save, restore and manage configurations of layer properties

the starting point to the ending point, reverse the direction of the PolyLine, add a vertex to the midpoint, or convert a PolyLine to an arc or a
- Drawing constraints
- Add the precision you need by applying dimensional constraints to ensure your 2D designs meet your exact proportion, angle and size
requirements by forcing a geometric shape to perform in a specified way. In addition, you can use geometric constraints to control dependencies
and relationships between your objects.
