2009: AutoCAD 2010 with parametrics introduced
Innovation: AutoCAD2010 with parametrics introduced
Location: California, USA
AutoCAD 2010 was important to Architectural Engineers because of a new feature introduced called parametric drawing. Parametric drawing allows the user to program constraints to lines. These constraints could include, but aren’t limited to: staying the same length as another line, staying parallel or perpendicular to another line, or staying connected to a certain point on a shape. Constraints can be very useful in helping to meet the design requirements.
