  • Design: Use industry-standard tools to design original ideas in both 2D and 3D.
  • Document: Create manufacturing or construction documentation with powerful documentation tools.
  • Communicate: Share critical design data securely and efficiently with robust PDF export capabilities and native DWG support.
  • Visualize: Shape ideas in 3D using powerful solid and surface modeling tools, and visualize designs in canvas with powerful rendering tools.

Get the best of both worlds: the 2D and 3D design tools of AutoCAD software and the Mac environment you love.

AutoCAD for Mac software offers the power, flexibility, and accuracy you need to create almost any shape imaginable--and take your design further.

Enjoy AutoCAD Productivity on Your Mac

Use the design software you want on your platform of choice. The user interface of AutoCAD for Mac software has a familiar Mac look and feel, and takes full advantage of the Mac OS X visual approach to drawing and layout management. Pan and zoom intuitively with Multi-Touch operation, and find designs quickly using Cover Flow navigation to flip through graphical previews of your files.

And because AutoCAD 2012 for Mac is still AutoCAD, it includes important features that help you improve usability and productivity. New autocomplete options help you access commands efficiently, while multifunction grips make it simple to directly manipulate lines, arcs, elliptical arcs, dimensions, and mleaders as well as 3D faces, edges, and vertices. An external reference (xref) visor helps save you time when working with xrefs. And with a UCS that allows direct editing, you can easily move the origin of an object, align the UCS with objects, and rotate objects around the X,Y, or Z axis without accessing the UCS command.

Explore Your Ideas

If you can imagine it, you can design it in 3D using AutoCAD for Mac software. Simply push and pull faces, edges, and vertices to model complex shapes. Refine mesh surfaces, create precise NURBS surfaces, and much more. See real-time previews of surfaces or solids as you explore ideas. Whether you need to produce design visuals for regulatory review or deliver high-impact renderings to pitch a cool new concept, AutoCAD for Mac gives you the tools you need to express yourself--and get the job done right. Go ahead and unleash your imagination.

Boost efficiency using the powerful AutoCAD documentation tools you require. Reduce rework by creating relationships between arrayed objects, such as windows on a building or trusses on a bridge. Array objects in rectangular space, with polar options, or along a specified path. Since you can also array objects in 3D space, you could save time when working with models. Plus, automation, management, and editing tools reduce repetitive tasks so you can work more quickly on projects of any size or scope.

Customize Your Software

Embrace your originality--make AutoCAD for Mac software work for you. It's easy to configure settings and screen real estate, build custom workflows, develop your own applications, and use applications created by others. With AutoCAD for Mac, you can get the power you need with the flexibility you want.

Communicate Clearly

Communicate your ideas more clearly. Use the integrated rendering tools in AutoCAD for Mac to create highly accurate, photorealistic images of your designs. Choose from hundreds of materials, apply photometric lighting, and control what you display to reviewers.

When it's time to share renderings and design files, you can communicate with teams using Macs and PCs with ease and confidence. AutoCAD for Mac gives you 100 percent DWG compatibility--letting you work natively in DWG, one of the world's most widely used design formats. Avoid inefficient data translations or conversions that can cause you to waste hours cleaning up files from clients and suppliers.

You can also share designs by exporting them to PDF. AutoCAD for Mac supports TrueType fonts and includes powerful publishing options when exporting to PDF.

Streamline License Management

AutoCAD 2012 for Mac software offers a choice of licensing options, including network licensing, which simplifies software asset management and provides more usage flexibility across teams. You can even choose a mixed network license that includes PC and Mac users, giving you more choice than ever before.
