I have always liked the Trim and Extend commands in Autodesk Inventor, and now AutoCAD 2021 incorporates the same simplified behavior. As you might remember in previous versions, when using the Extend or Trim command in AutoCAD, you were always prompted to select the boundaries first. Now in 2021, AutoCAD detects the boundary(s) automatically, saving the step of having to choose one or more items before selecting the actual items to Trim/Extend. Another nice change, is that the command default to a fence selection, making it ideal for selecting groups of objects.
With the introduction of the industry-specific toolsets included in your AutoCAD 2019 subscription, Autodesk offers improved workflows for your entire team allowing you to work faster and more precisely. You can download and use only the toolset that you need, when you need it, tailoring the software to fit your needs. Identifying the right toolset for your business might seem overwhelming at first, but we are here to help!
It’s that time of year, when Autodesk rolls out the latest version of their flagship products, like AutoCAD and other AutoCAD-based applications. While the discovery of new features and improvements can be quite exciting, what’s not so great is migrating all of your custom menus, shortcuts, and settings into the new versions. Often this can be a daunting task. The good news is there are tools and methods that can help with this chore. Today I will talk primarily about plain AutoCAD migration, but other AutoCAD based applications may apply here as well.
