ATP244What’s new in AutoCAD 2010
Segment 3
 April 20, 2009
Kenneth Leary
All Levels
AutoCAD 2010
In the first segment we covered Parametric modeling which entails Geometric and Dimensionalconstraints. In the second Segment we covered dynamic block enhancements. In our third and finalsegment we’re going to cover the rest of the enhancements to existing commands that were added toAutoCAD 2010. These are the changes that are often referred to as the Fit and Finish features.
Drawing File Format
AutoCAD 2010 uses a new Drawing file format that offers better save times, especially when savingfiles with larger amounts of annotative objects. Another new feature of the new drawing format is theobject size limits have been increased; in older formats no single object in a drawing could be largerthan 256 MB. With the new format in AutoCAD 2010, the object size limit has been increased to at least4 GB. Since these large objects cannot be saved into old formats a new compatibility option has beenadded to the Open and Save tab of the Options dialog box.When the box is selected, or if you type LARGEOBJECTSUPPORT at the command prompt, the objectsize limits from previous versions will be used instead of the new 2010 format limits.
Quick Access Toolbar
The Quick access toolbarhas received a fewupgrades. Now whenyou right click over thetoolbar you have somenew options available.You can remove theQuick Access toolbar,add a separator betweensome of the commands, Customize the Toolbar and move the location of the toolbar below the Ribbon.
Ribbon Improvements
AutoCAD ruined, I mean changed, the popular Dashboard palette and created the Ribbon in the 2009version. The idea was to match the new menu configuration used by Microsoft Office 2007. One of theresults of this change was the loss of some of thefunctionality that the Dashboard contained.AutoCAD 2010 returns the Dashboardfunctionality and adds some more new features.
Vertical Layout
- the Ribbon can now bedetached or using the proper terminology,undocked from its original location and rotated toa vertical layout, much like the Tool Pallets andthe old Dashboard. Also similar to the Tool Pallet,the ribbon can be docked on the left or right sideof the drawing area and minimized until youmouse over the minimized palette to expand it.The Tabs will also be displayed along the side ofthe menu palette.When in the vertical position, the individual panelwill now expand horizontally when selected.Widening the panel the button will automaticallyalign to fit the new area.
Sticky Panels
– Panels can now be removed from the Ribbon and dragged into the drawing area.These panels are referred to as Sticky panels. When you switch from one tab to another in the panelthe sticky panel will stay on screen. When youmouse over the panel, menu bars appear in thesides. Selecting the Toggle Orientation buttonchanges the panel from expanding down toexpanding to the left or right.
Selecting the top button returns the Panel to itsproper location on the ribbon.
