Time for another dose of AutoCAD 2007 features. OK so I won't be covering multiple features in the sense as far as numbers goes, but the new Dashboard palette does show case many new features at one time. The Dashboard (or what I like to call AutoCAD's instrument panel) contains tools of all kinds. The Dashboard allows you to access both 2D and 3D commands, but its primary purpose is to ensure that you have most of what should be the commonly needed tools for the new 3D environment that is in AutoCAD this release. The Dashboard is broken up into what are called control panels. The Dashboard has a total of seven control panels. Below is a list of the control panels that are part of the Dashboard palette.
- 2D Draw
- 3D Make
- 3D Navigate
- Visual Style
That's it for now, I will post some more about the new features in AutoCAD 2007 in the near future.
