New features and improvements in AutoCAD 2023
Markup Import and Markup Assistant: Automatically import comments and make changes to drawings as you collaborate with team members and reviewers, thus reducing additional drawing activities.
My Info: My Info is an easy-to-follow guide with valuable tips and new features to help you work faster when and in the right context.
AutoCAD web app APIs: Automate in-process activities using the AutoCAD LISP Editor API in the AutoCAD web app available to AutoCAD subscribers only
Sheet Set Manager: The sheet set manager now allows you to open them even faster. Using the Autodesk cloud platform, transferring and opening sheet sets between team members is faster and more secure.
Share: Send controlled copies of your drawings to your team and colleagues, giving people who only need to view them and those who need to edit them properly accessible. Reduce design time by sharing drawings with AutoCAD
Count: This feature allows you to automate the counting of blocks or objects from a selected area or from the entire drawing using a menu that includes identifying errors and navigating the counted objects.
Trace: Add notes and tags for design changes without modifying an existing drawing from the AutoCAD desktop software and web and mobile applications.
Move to Autodesk Docs: Increase productivity and reduce drawing effort by migrating CAD drawing sheets as PDFs from AutoCAD to Autodesk Docs. Plus, access DWG files in Autodesk Docs from anywhere with the AutoCAD web app.
Floating windows: View and edit two drawings simultaneously in fully functional side-by-side or multi-monitor windows. There is no need to open another instance of AutoCAD.
Redesigned Home tab: AutoCAD’s new Home tab makes it easy to access files and other useful content from one place.
Graphics: Graphics have been updated in AutoCAD 2023 so you can render 3D objects up to 10 times faster than before with the visual styles of shading, shading with edges, and wireframe.
Personalized Installation: Reduce software setup time through faster and personalized installation. The ability to work in AutoCAD even during installation.
Protect your designs with TrustedDWG technology: Take care of the integrity of design data throughout the review process by using TrustedDWG® technology. The TrustedDWG technology on which AutoCAD is based in the original, most effective and accurate way to store and share design data.
