Welcome toAutoCAD 20001In This ChapterWelcome to AutoCAD 2000, a product with a rich and Understanding what’s new inAutoCAD 2000unique history. First released in 1982 under the nameMicroCAD, the first AutoCAD ran under the CP/Moperating system on Intel 8080 computers. That first Learning AutoCAD Migrating to AutoCAD 2000 Using Help Using Technical support andAutoCAD release started a revolution in drafting andWeb resourcesdesign. Today, AutoCAD is translated into 18 languagesand used by millions of users worldwide on computersa thousand times more powerful than those early 8080microprocessors.AutoCAD 2000 continues the AutoCAD heritage, andthis User’s Guide is the key to its power. In this chapteryou will find descriptions of new features and resourcesavailable to help you learn to use AutoCAD 2000.33

What’s New in AutoCAD 2000AutoCAD 2000 provides many new features that improve and enhanceAutoCAD. This section gives a quick summary of new features and listsreferences to topics where you can learn more.Heads-Up Design EnvironmentHeads-up Design means you focus on the design, not on the keyboard.AutoCAD 2000 provides new tools to help you make the most of your legacydesign data, reducing the time you spend accessing and reworking similardesigns. Other features simplify how you work, making AutoCAD moretransparent and easier to use.Heads-up design environmentFeatureWhat’s new?For more informationMultipledocumentenvironmentWork with multiple drawings in a singleAutoCAD session and copy, move, andpaint objects, plus associated data,between them.See “Working with MultipleDrawings” on page 55.AutoCADDesignCenter Use the new AutoCAD DesignCenter tolocate and load content, such as blocks,layers, and named objects, into yourdrawings.See chapter 14, “ManagingContent with AutoCADDesignCenter.”Quick dimensionsUse the new QDIM command toautomatically create any number ofdimensions with a simple selection ofgeometry.See “Dimensioning MultipleObjects” on page 405.New object snapsUse the new Parallel and Extensionobject snaps to draw more precisely.See “Parallel” on page 176 and“Extension” on page 177.AutoTrack Use polar and object snap tracking tocreate objects at specific polar angles orat angles relative to object snap points.See “Using AutoTrack” on page 178.Partial open andpartial loadOpen and edit only needed portions ofdrawings and Xrefs.See “Using Partial Open and PartialLoad” on page 311.Real-time 3DrotationUse the new 3DORBIT command toeasily manipulate views of 3D objects.See “Interactive Viewing in 3D” onpage 601.34 Chapter 1Welcome to AutoCAD 2000
