AutoCAD® 2009 is packed with new tools and capabilities to drive productivity improvements across your design workflows. With a redesigned interface, AutoCAD 2009 puts the tools you need at your fingertips.


Ribbon User Interface
With the ribbon interface, overall drafting productivity is increased as the number of steps to reach a command is decreased. The ribbon is both customizable and expandable so that it can be optimized for each user and can meet each company’s standards.


Action Recorder
The new action recorder saves time and increases productivity by automating repetitive tasks without requiring the skill or assistance of a professional CAD manager. Users can quickly record a task, add text messages and requests for input, then quickly select and play back recorded files.


Autodesk ViewCube and SteeringWheels
The Autodesk® ViewCube® 3D navigation widget is an interactive tool used to rotate and orient any solid or surface model in AutoCAD. The new Autodesk® SteeringWheels® tool allows quick access to the pan, center, zoom, and orbit commands. It is highly customizable so you can add walk-through commands to help create and record a walk-through of your model.

Menu Browser
Reviewing and working with several files is no longer a tedious and time-consuming process. The new menu browser interface enables you to browse files and examine thumbnail images and provides detailed information about file size and file creator. Plus, you can organize recently used files by name, date, or title.


Layer Dialog
The new layer dialog makes creating and editing layer properties faster and less prone to error. Changes are instantly reflected in the drawing as they are made in the dialog.


Quick View
The quick view feature uses thumbnails instead of file names, making opening the correct drawing file and layout faster and decreasing.
