It’s that time of year again-Christmas for us drafting/design folks! By that, I mean that Autodesk has released their newest offerings for 2018 and many of us have already upgraded or are planning to. Improvements range from “efficiency” tweaks to improved pdf importing. With this release, AutoCAD® 2018 continues to improve the way you interact with AutoCAD.
