AutoCAD Design Principles

In 1995, Autodesk introduced a new approach to CAD, designing a “user-centered” approach that included “design principles”. These principles outlined a series of non-technical requirements that Autodesk believed any commercially viable CAD product must meet, and dictated that Autodesk would decide what needed to be done to meet those requirements and how to implement it. These principles included things like intuitive graphics and navigation, as well as more technical criteria, such as a rigorous workflow. The design principles were generally not met by prior CAD products.

In 2001, Autodesk published an extensive set of design principles for the first time. These guidelines can be found on the Autodesk website.

AutoCAD User Interface

AutoCAD includes a number of tools that simplify the creation of objects and drawings, and a series of dialog boxes for working with the objects. AutoCAD also includes a customizable drawing environment, using grids, snap to line, snap to point, and other features to make it easier to create and edit drawings. However, one downside of the AutoCAD user interface is that it is not always intuitive for the novice user. Some of the dialog boxes, such as the Select menu, are also very complex to operate and can be a source of error. The distance a user needs to move the cursor to create a new line, for example, is very large, and the arc feature is not intuitive.

Tools and Methods

The Draw and Drafting Tools

The Draw and Drafting Tools consist of a series of commands to control drafting tools (lines, arcs, and area), drawing tools (polylines and circles), and other functions. Some drawing tools include the ability to change stroke width, color, and color line width, while the drawing tools let you add points, endpoints, and anchors.

Hands-On Drawing

The Hand and Move Tools

The Hand and Move Tools include commands to draw or move objects, line segments, and the general workspace.

Dimensioning Tools

The Dimensioning Tools enable you to add measurements to points, lines, and arcs.

General Tools

The General Tools include commands for text, 3D modeling, and equations.

AutoCAD versions

AutoCAD LT ( )

AutoCAD LT is an entry-level version of AutoCAD (originally Autodesk LT). AutoCAD LT is licensed as an upgrade or as an entirely separate software product. A perpetual license for AutoCAD LT will allow a user to upgrade to the full version of AutoCAD later, if desired. AutoCAD LT is designed to provide AutoCAD functionality on smaller devices. For instance, it features the ability to render a drawing on a smartphone.

AutoCAD LT is available in a 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) release. An x64 release is required to run AutoCAD LT on Microsoft Windows operating systems released after Vista (Windows 7 and later) and Windows Server 2008 (Windows Server 2008 R2 and later). It is also available as a part of a bundle (AutoCAD LT + Design Web Site Builder), or as a standalone component.

The AutoCAD LT includes the following features:
2D, 3D, and plotter-enabled raster;
BIM (Building Information Modeling), annotative 2D drafting, and interactive 2D web applications
2D shapes and 2D profiles
Viewport layout (based on AutoCAD’s Viewport Navigator)
Raster Import/Export (dwg, rtf, png, bmp, jpg, tiff, dwf, dgn, j2k, and eps)
Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) import/export
3D design (exploitation of AutoCAD’s 3D features, such as 3D modeling, 3D surfaces, and 3D solids)
Customizable, linked drawings (linking a drawing to a DXF, DWG, or dgn file)
User-defined symbols (for 2D and 3D)
Task-based drawing environment
3D modeling
Structural analysis, critical path analysis (analysis of critical elements in the drawing to determine which part of the drawing can be ignored)
3D renderings on mobile platforms
Non-destructive editing
Customizable drawings

The city of Bellmore is hoping for a savings of $120,000 annually by not having to shell out a license fee for a new, but already-approved, movie theater.

City officials are proposing that the taxpayer-funded Bellmore Civic Association — which owns the Ritz Theater at 366 Hempstead Turnpike — sell the screen as part of a purchase of the 4,000-seat theater for $1.5 million. The city would pay the remainder of the purchase price.

The city-owned center, which has been closed since the 2000-2001 season because of deferred maintenance and an outdated sound system, would be turned into a community theater.

“The movie theater is a great venue for our community,” said City Councilman John Menchaca. “It brings thousands of people to our city. We want to keep it available for our citizens.

“It’s a very good offer. They are very motivated to sell. It’s been open to the public for eight months,” he added.

The city council will hold a workshop to determine whether to go ahead with the sale on Tuesday, Feb. 19, said Menchaca, chairman of the city’s Arts & Culture Committee.

The deal will require approval of the state Department of Community Affairs, which currently regulates movies in New York, said Councilman Bob Fritz.

The Department of Community Affairs, however, has no objection to the transfer of control of the Bellmore theater to the Bellmore Civic Association, said Julie Ruggiero, a spokeswoman.

“A license is not required,” she said.

Under state law, the civic association can transfer a license for an outdoor concert or theater production without Department of Community Affairs approval, she said.

Any change in control of the theater must be approved by the U.S. Department of Justice, which is not required to approve the transfer of control of the theater under state law, Ruggiero said.

“There is nothing to do with the city,” said Fritz. “It is a civic association, and they are trying to turn it into
