Go All-Digital

Supporting the global environment we supply all software as digital downloads only. How can you participate?

We all can be part of the solution. Digital downloads are the "green" answer to demanding fewer resources for your computer's needs. What you get is software with an environmental footprint of zero while still staying up-to-date.

Digital downloads are one part of the larger trend in making our lives - both professional and personal - cleaner, more efficient, and better. Continue reading to see what else you can do to improve your green computing.

Limit screen-saver use. A screen saver does not save energy. In fact, more often than not, a screen saver not only will draw power for the monitor, but also will keep the CPU from shutting down. Instead, set your computer to turn off the monitor first, then go into standby mode after a longer period of inactivity.

Disconnect your Virtual Private Network (VPN) when not actively using your corporate network. Being connected may limit your system's ability to enter standby mode.

Many popular computer games and other third party software packages that run in the background will not allow the computer to go to sleep - even if they are paused or the active window is minimized.

Some web sites or pages that have active banners and or animated advertisements will not allow the computer to sleep on its own and must be closed, or the computer put manually into a sleep state.

Enabled power management to place your monitor, hard drives and computer into a low-power "sleep" mode after a period of inactivity.

Monitor/display sleep: Turn off after 15 minutes or less

Turn off hard drives/hard disk sleep: 15 minutes or less

System standby/sleep: After 30 minutes or less

Advanced users may wish to establish multiple power schemes to address different usage models. For example, you can create a power scheme for playing music CDs that shuts off your hard drive and monitor immediately, but never puts your system into standby mode.

To further reduce power consumption, turn off computing and peripheral devices that are not being used or being used for an extended period of time such as overnight.

Plug all your electronics into one surge protector, so you can easily switch them all off when you leave the room or go to sleep. Most power supplies (such as your cell phone charger) continue to draw power and generate heat even when not attached to a device.

Capture and showcase CAD models

AutoCAD® Design Suite increases the power of AutoCAD. The suite includes raster-to-vector conversion and visualization software, as well as tools to capture and showcase 3D CAD models.

Included Products

Design every detail and share your work with confidence using AutoCAD software.

Capture design information from scanned drawings and raster images and convert them into AutoCAD DWG™ files.

Turn AutoCAD models into 3D rendered presentations to share live, online, or on mobile devices.

Capture and integrate reality data directly into your design process with ReCap reality capture software and services.

Create comprehensive modeling, animation, simulation, and rendering solutions.

Power your creative design process with exceptional surfacing capabilities and preferred modeling tools.

Capture

Coordination Model Attach and view Navisworks and BIM 360 Glue models directly inside AutoCAD software. Reference the models as you design to avoid potential conflicts. Take advantage of Navisworks' vast file format support to bring models into AutoCAD from other applications.
Reality computing (enhanced) Orient your work more precisely with the point cloud. Maneuver between horizontal and vertical planes more quickly with Dynamic UCS. Snap to edges, intersections, corners, and centerlines to quickly create geometry using point cloud object snaps.
Capture scanned design information Use AutoCAD Raster Design raster-to-vector conversion software to capture design information from scanned drawings and raster images.

Connect

Exchange Apps Customize your software with Exchange Apps, which are Autodesk-approved extensions. The Exchange Apps marketplace includes general productivity tools, drawing content, and applications for specific disciplines. All apps have been extensively tested and are easy to download and install.
Automated workflows AutoCAD Design Suite presents an economical way for you to extend your AutoCAD workflow. With the purchase of a license to a single package, you can maximize results and achieve greater consistency with expanded toolsets, interoperable software, and enhanced collaboration through the cloud.
Design feed Use the design feed on an intranet, Internet, or cloud connection. The design and the conversation happen in the same place, but when it's time to send your final drawing, you have a choice. You can keep the comments intact, or strip them using built-in tools in the eTransmit and File Save workflows.

Create

Stunning Visual Experience See the details in your designs more clearly with visual enhancements such as Line Fading. Readability is now enhanced with true curves instead of line segments. Minimize the need to undo an operation by using Command Preview, which lets you see the results of a command before you commit to it. Move and copy large selection sets more easily.
Smart Dimensioning Automatically create appropriate measurements based on your drawing context. Pass the cursor over selected objects to get a preview of the dimension—before you create it.
Enhanced PDFs Produce documents more quickly with smarter, smaller, more powerful files. All text is searchable, and you can attach PDF files to your drawings for better performance.
Sysvar monitor Prevent unwanted changes to your system settings. This feature alerts you to changes to your preferences that could affect your drafting work.
Online maps Access online maps (formerly live maps) directly inside the canvas. Capture online maps as static images and print them with your design overlaid, or create PDFs that include the geolocation map.
Professional documentation tools Capture the precise details of your design with AutoCAD documentation tools. Import models from a wide variety of other formats and automatically generate intelligent CAD documentation.

Showcase

Advanced surfacing capabilities Create exceptional surfaces with Alias Design industrial design software. Alias software provides a range of sketching, modeling, surfacing, and visualization tools. Create designs with tools tailored for industrial design, automotive design, and technical surfacing. Get the advanced features you need, from initial concept sketch to development of production-ready Class-A surfaces.
Cinematic-quality presentation tools Create stunning 3D renderings with 3ds Max 3D modeling software. 3ds Max software provides a comprehensive solution for architects, designers, civil engineers, and visualization specialists. Validate and sell designs before they're built, and get rapid iteration of designs, accurate daylight analysis, and high-impact visuals and animations.
3D visualization software Transform AutoCAD models into 3D rendered presentations with Showcase 3D visualization software, and share them online or on mobile devices. Showcase provides presentation and design exploration tools for architects, designers, engineers, and marketing professionals. Quickly transform 3D CAD models into interactive walkthroughs and presentations so you can evaluate aesthetic and design alternatives in real time with peers, constituents, and customers.
