IDRA Software Feature: AutoCAD for MAC 2012

The new AutoCAD® for Mac® software is here, helping you create stunning designs on your platform of choice. AutoCAD for Mac CAD software delivers powerhouse 3D design tools and timesaving drafting tools. It takes full advantage of the Mac OS® X platform, with an intuitive user interface. Share files regardless of platform with native support for DWG™ technology. And new network licensing support may help you more easily manage your licenses and save money.


Design and shape the world around you with AutoCAD® for Mac® software. Explore your ideas, speed documentation, and share data seamlessly. With the power, flexibility, and accuracy you expect from AutoCAD® software in an intuitive, native Mac interface, AutoCAD for Mac helps you take your design and documentation further.

Native Support For Mac OS

Get the robust 3D free-form design tools and powerful drafting capabilities you expect from AutoCAD in an intuitive Mac® interface. AutoCAD for Mac software takes full advantage of the Mac OS® X platform. Draw and manage layouts using controls that work like you think. Pan and zoom with Multi-Touch gestures and find your designs quickly using Cover Flow navigation to flip through previews of your files

3D Free-Form Design Tools

Explore your design ideas with easy-to-use tools that help you transform concepts into reality. Push and pull faces, edges, and vertices to model complex shapes. Refine mesh surfaces and create high-precision NURBS curves and surfaces. Preview surfaces and solids as you create them—in real time

Productivity Tools

Auto-complete options help you access commands more efficiently. The power of multi-functional grips extends to most AutoCAD objects, including lines, arcs, dimensions, and mleaders as well as 3D faces, edges and vertices. External reference (xref) visor puts xref tools at your fingertips. Elements modified in one file are easily updated in related design files. Divvy up large project components and work on them simultaneously to maximize efficiency.

Rendering Tools

AutoCAD for Mac software transforms your designs into images that convey the nuances of your design. Powerful rendering tools let you choose from hundreds of materials, apply photometric lighting, and control the display to create highly accurate, photorealistic images.

Associative Array Functionality

Reduce rework by creating relationships between arrayed objects, such as windows on a building or trusses on a bridge. The automation, management, and editing tools in AutoCAD for Mac software help you reduce repetitive tasks

Parametric Drawing

Define persistent object relationships and your design adjusts automatically as you draw—parallel lines stay parallel, concentric circles stay centered. Infer both geometric and dimensional constraints in real-time.


Configure settings, extend the software, and build custom workflows. You can even create specialized design and drafting applications—such as industry-specific software or add-on applications from partner developers.

Network Licensing

AutoCAD for Mac offers a choice of licensing options – including network licensing – to help simplify software asset management and give you more flexibility in maximizing the software across geographically dispersed teams.

Native Support For DWG

Work natively in DWG™, one of the world’s most common file formats. Share files easily and confidently regardless of platform.
