ACAD 2022 New Features

This is only a basic summary of the new AutoCAD 2022 features.
See the links above for more details and videos.

Start Tab Redesign

The Start Tab redesign for AutoCAD provides a consistent welcome experience for Autodesk products.

Floating Drawing Windows

Drag a file tab off the AutoCAD application window, creating a floating window. This makes it easy to move the drawing to another monitor.

Share Current Drawing

Share a link to a copy of the current drawing to view or edit in the AutoCAD web app. The shared file includes all related dependent files such as xrefs and font files.

Push to Autodesk Docs and BIM 360

Teams can now view digital PDFs in the field for reference. Use Push to Autodesk Docs to upload AutoCAD drawings as PDFs to a specific project on BIM 360 or Autodesk Docs.

Trace

The new Markup interface for Autodesk apps. Think of trace as a virtual, collaborative sheet of tracing paper that's laid over the drawing, allowing collaborators to add feedback right in the drawing.

Count

Getting an accurate count of the number of object in your drawing is easier than ever. You can also use the Count palette to display and manage the counted blocks in the current drawing.

3D Graphics Technical Preview

Autodesk includes a Technical Preview of a completely new cross platform 3D graphics system being developed for AutoCAD. This new graphics system leverages the power of modern GPUs and multi-core CPUs to offer a smooth navigation experience for much larger drawings than in prior releases.
