AutoCAD 2011 OEM Debut

Autodesk, Inc has announced the availability of the 2011 AutoCAD OEM development platform, which provides tools to build custom AutoCAD software-based products for specific markets and extend design information to users outside the traditional CAD industry.

The AutoCAD OEM 2011 development platform gives developers access to the AutoCAD engine and enables them to take advantage of the innovation, functionality and new features in AutoCAD 2011 software to develop custom, industry-specific applications that offer the precise features, commands, menus and design data their customers require.

Expanded capabilities in AutoCAD 2011 software include new surface modeling tools that enable users to more easily create smooth surfaces and surface transitions while associativity maintains relationships between all of the objects; point cloud support for up to two billion points; new inferred constraints that enable designers to define constraints as they draw; enhancements to the Hatch command that bring improved drafting efficiency; and new gradient hatch patterns that permit users to add more colors and shading to drawings.

“There are hundreds of niche industries that need to use the power and precision of AutoCAD in their work but require the product to be highly tailored to the specific needs of that industry,” said Amar Hanspal, senior vice president, Autodesk Platform Solutions and Emerging Business. “To serve those unique markets, we rely on our trusted development partners and provide them with AutoCAD OEM 2011 to enable us to meet the needs of all of our customers.”
