Snap to geometric center
A new object snap mode – geometric center, or GCE at the command-line – allows you to snap to the center of closed polylines, whether regular (such as the ones shown below) or irregular.
Revision cloud creation
The REVCLOUD command has some new options: you can easily create rectangular or polygonal revision clouds, for instance, as well as modify them afterwards.
The DIM command now infers the kind of dimension you want to create as you hover over/select geometry.
You’ll also see enhancements around wrapping of long dimension text in this release.
System variable monitor
This feature is intended for users to make sure they don’t have impolite apps or scripts running that don’t reset sysvars to their previous settings when they’ve finished what they’re doing. But this is also likely to be a very handy debugging tool for application developers to identify when their applications are misbehaving in this respect.
Higher quality graphics display
Those of you with capable graphics cards will see some nice improvements in terms of the display of curves in AutoCAD 2017. We’ve gone beyond the line-smoothing work in 2016 to make greater use of the GPU for elaboration of curves and line-weights.
You can now attach Navisworks and BIM360 models (.NWC, .NWD) directly into AutoCAD using the new CMATTACH command, allowing you to model within and around them. The “BIM underlay” feature team did a great job delivering the ability to attach large models with very good performance.
Point cloud sectioning and floorplan extraction
Fans of Reality Computing are really going to like AutoCAD’s new 2D floorplan extraction: it’s great to see some point cloud feature extraction capabilities being introduced in the product. The SECTIONPLANE command has been updated to generate the new “slice” section which works with point cloud objects. You can then use the PCEXTRACTSECTION command to generate geometry based on this slice through the point cloud:
AutoCAD 2017 creates better PDFs:
- They are smaller – typically half the size or less than the 2016 output – and are generated more quickly
- All text is now searchable and selectable (unless you choose otherwise), even with with multibyte and Unicode characters and SHX fonts (which have the source text added as a comment)
- Hyperlinks are maintained, whether embedded URLs or links between drawing content (e.g. callouts linking to named views)
- Publishing sheet sets results in PDFs with named pages, and can be launched directly from the Sheet Set Manager as a one-click option
- There are now a number of PC3 files containing commonly-used output settings, usable from PLOT, PUBLISH and EXPORTPDF commands
PDF underlays now have much better performance
It’s definitely worth taking another look at AutoCAD’s PDF support if you haven’t in a while.
A lot of work has been done on rendering, in this release. We’ve simplified the options available – creating a number of handy presets, such as “Coffee-Break Quality” 🙂 – and introduced image-based lighting. Many of these enhancements relate to our integration of Autodesk’s RapidRT engine into AutoCAD.
