Auto CAD

1. What is Auto CAD

AutoCAD® is computer-aided design (CAD) software that architects, engineers, and construction professionals rely on to create precise 2D and 3D drawings.

Draft, annotate, and design 2D geometry and 3D models with solids, surfaces, and mesh objects Automate tasks such as comparing drawings, addings blocks, creating schedules, and more Customize with add-on apps and APIs Reference from AutoCAD

2. How to use it

The UI of autoCAD2018 Some official learn information for reference:link

4. Install

Reference here to install AutoCAD 2018 , for another version of CAD ,the method is similar.

5. Input fusion data to AutoCAD

  • Create standard 2D drawings from your 3D geometry by entering the DRAWING workspace. See the Drawings section of the help for more information.
  • Choice Drawing>from design
  • In creating drawing,we can determine the size and other information , I choice IOS standard, unit is mmsheet size A4,etc
  • Output from dxf formate and then open in AutoCAD
