Activity Insights

Stay informed of relevant file changes and access throughout your project lifecycle with details of multi-user activities in a DWG file, conveniently requiring almost no setup for files on LAN, local, and cloud servers.

Markup Import and Markup Assist

Import feedback and incorporate changes to your drawings automatically when collaborating with teammates and reviewers, without additional drawing steps.

Smart Blocks: Placement

Smart blocks placement lets you automatically place blocks in your drawing based on where you’ve inserted the same ones thus far in your DWG file, reducing the number of clicks and saving you time in the process.

Smart Blocks: Replacement

Smart blocks replacement helps you quickly find the blocks you need by replacing one or more blocks via machine learning-based suggestions, recently used blocks, and manual substitute block selection.

Streamlined collaboration

With an AutoCAD subscription customers can edit their drawings anytime, anywhere.
