It’s out, but I don’t have the guts to switch mid semester. If anyone does, let us know how it goes.
I tried…but it won’t install on my older white MacBook because “the graphics card is not supported”. I use AutoCad all the time on the same machine using Windows, so it should be possible on the Mac side, too. Maybe they’ll make a fix for that or else I guess I’m out of luck. I also use “Map” features a lot and Civil 3D, neither of which will be available on the Mac side for a while. Oh, well.
If I could only find the time to learn VectorWorks that would be another option.
cant wait to try it. awesome!
One of the construction studio students reports that it (free version) won’t accept custom CTB files. Always defaults to ACAD pens
It is an excellent program. i went ahead and switched mid semester and it’s very user friendly. All the commands are the same or pretty close to the AutoCAD lite version I had, but some of the symbols are different. Try it out, for sure and enjoy!
no xtrim. no quick select. booo.
i love it
does it really work? because i downloaded it and im scared if its a fake …..
Yes, Autodesk provides free copies of their software for students. It works the same on Mac as it has always worked on Windows. There are some problems with it since it is still in beta. For example, you can’t use a custom ctb file, and you can’t run the program on a older Mac because it isn’t supported by the old intel cards. The only place I recommend you download it from is the official Autodesk website. You have to declare your university affiliation and your school year.
What CAD software or combination of software is best for the process of designing to eventually manufacturing. I’m new at CAD I have solid works 2010 but I have been reading that CATIA or Rhino might be better for Auto and Aviation. Any help is appreciated.
I’m still amazed by the fact that Autodesk provides these free copies of their incredibly expensive software to students.
