Equipped with the right applications, a computer can be of great help in virtually any domain of activity. When it comes to designing and precision, no other tool is as accurate as a computer. Moreover, specialized applications such as AutoCAD give you the possibility to design nearly anything ranging from art, to complex mechanical parts or even buildings.
Suitable for business environments and experienced users
After a decent amount of time spent installing the application on your system, you are ready to fire it up. Thanks to the office suite like interface, all of its features are cleverly organized in categories. At a first look, it looks easy enough to use, but the abundance of features it comes equipped with leaves room for second thoughts.
Create 2D and 3D objects
You can make use of basic geometrical shapes to define your objects, as well as draw custom ones. Needless to say that you can take advantage of a multitude of tools that aim to enhance precision. A grid can be enabled so that you can easily snap elements, as well as adding anchor points to fully customize shapes.
With a little imagination and patience on your behalf, nearly anything can be achieved. Available tools allow you to create 3D objects from scratch and have them fully enhanced with high-quality textures. A powerful navigation pane is put at your disposal so that you can carefully position the camera to get a clearer view of the area of interest.
Various export possibilities
Similar to a modern web browser, each project is displayed in its own tab. This comes in handy, especially for comparison views. Moreover, layouts and layers also play important roles, as it makes objects handling a little easier.
Sine the application is not the easiest to carry around, requiring a slightly sophisticated machine to properly run, there are several export options put at your disposal so that the projects itself can be moved around.
Aside from the application specific format, you can save as an image file of multiple types, PDF, FBX and a few more. Additionally, it can be sent via email, directly printed out on a sheet of paper, or even sent to a 3D printing service, if available.
To end with
All in all, AutoCAD remains one of the top applications used by professionals to achieve great precision with projects of nearly any type. It encourages usage with incredible offers for student licenses so you get acquainted with its abundance of features early on. A lot can be said about what it can and can't do, but the true surprise lies in discovering it step-by-step.
The graphical language of AutoCAD Serial Key, known as AutoLISP, is similar to Lisp. Therefore, it is understandable to anyone who has used Lisp-based software. You can find a brief introduction to AutoLISP in the Automation chapter.
The Commands for AutoCAD define how you use the software. By reviewing the AutoCAD Commands page, you can find more information about each command, including some tips and tricks for using it.
AutoCAD Commands in Detail
The three main sections of the AutoCAD Commands page (the command listing, the history, and the shortcuts) are further subdivided into sections, which contain brief descriptions of how AutoCAD commands are used and where you can find more information. For example, the Command Console window has a section for saving objects and a section for customizing the viewport and workspace.
For more information about each AutoCAD command, click the command name in the command list, which takes you to the command’s command descriptions page.

Here are some of the more frequently asked questions regarding AutoCAD:
If you can’t remember where you saved an object, choose Window | Saved Frame Objects and look for it there.
If you save a new drawing, the command line indicates when the file was saved, and you can retrieve the old drawing from the file.
You can change the tool to be used in a command by right-clicking the command name and selecting the tool from the menu that appears.
You can control where the command line appears by selecting View | Command Bar | Command Line.
If you save the drawing by pressing Ctrl + S (Save), then you can save changes to the drawing at any time by pressing Ctrl + F9 (Save As).
If you do not save a drawing before closing it, your drawing is lost when you restart AutoCAD.
To change the background of a drawing, you must save the drawing and close it. Then, choose Page Setup | Document Setup | Backdrop | Change. For more information, see Changing the Background Color of an AutoCAD Drawing.

Layout and AutoCAD Express
The intent of the 2.0 version of AutoCAD was to provide a common platform that would be compatible with all of the different functions of the newer versions of AutoCAD. The interface between the 2.0 and 3.0 versions of AutoCAD, which is called AutoCAD Express, was created in order to provide the functionality of AutoCAD in a new, simplified interface. The new interface was launched on April 18, 2009, with AutoCAD 2.0 and AutoCAD Express 2.0, and was compatible with Microsoft Windows Vista and Microsoft Windows 7. AutoCAD Express can also be installed on some flavors of Linux, and Windows XP.
Some of the new features of AutoCAD 2.0 are:
Open Table Design (formerly called “Open Table Drawing”) – The Open Table Design feature allows AutoCAD to import or create a table design from a file that is created in Microsoft Excel. It can import information from spreadsheet files created in Microsoft Excel (CSV, XLS and XLSX files) or from AutoCAD files. It can also import or create a table design from Microsoft Visio diagrams.
TurboCAD – A native X86 Windows application that incorporates the AutoCAD 2.0 drafting platform. It is designed as a low-cost CAD application. The software supports 2D and 3D drafting.
AutoCAD Architecture – A tool for creating architectural design projects.
AutoCAD Electrical – A tool for creating design projects in the electrical engineering field.
AutoCAD Engineering – A tool for creating design projects in the engineering field.
AutoCAD Graphics – A tool for creating technical documentation.
AutoCAD Hydrophobics – A tool for creating design projects in the hydrophobics field.
AutoCAD Inventor – A tool for creating 3D product design projects in the 3D design field.
AutoCAD Landscape – A tool for creating design projects in the landscape field.
AutoCAD Mechanical – A tool for creating design projects in the mechanical engineering field.
AutoCAD Product Design – A tool for creating 3D product design projects.
AutoCAD Project Management – A tool for creating 2D and 3D project management projects.
AutoCAD Sheetmetal – A tool for creating 2D and 3D design projects in the sheet metal engineering field.
AutoCAD Structural – A tool for creating 2D

The maximum width between the terminals of a pair of parallel-connected memory cells in a magnetic random access memory (MRAM) is determined by the distance between the magnetic-field-generating areas of the magnetic layer of the cell, and the thickness of the layer between these areas. Each memory cell is therefore isolated by a predetermined gap between the two terminals.
For a memory cell to store two values, one for each of the two states of magnetization of the layer, the two magnetic-field-generating areas must have different shapes.
For example, if the two magnetic-field-generating areas are identical, a magnetic domain wall formed by the two areas is generally extended over the entire width of the layer, as is illustrated in FIG. 1.
However, a magnetic domain wall has two different “heads”; that is, it has two stable states of magnetization on either side of the domain wall. These two states can thus store a “0” or a “1”.
When one of the magnetic-field-generating areas is small and the other is large, the magnetic domain wall is generally formed with a small head on one of the two sides and a large head on the other side.
It is then possible to store only “1” or “0” values, and not two different values, in this configuration.
In order to store two different values in an MRAM, the two magnetic-field-generating areas of a layer can be shifted apart along the magnetization axis of the layer. A change in the shape of the magnetic-field-generating areas generally enables the writing of two values in the memory cell; however, these values are then determined for each cell and for each position of the head of the magnetic
