AutoCAD 2004 and you:

· Quickly create: New and enhanced tools that will optimize your workflows include Autodesk® Express Tools, which reduce the number of steps required to complete a task, new pallets Tools that combine frequently used data, or the optimized DWG file format, which speeds up the recording, opening and transmission of files.

· Easily Share: New and enhanced data exchange capabilities include support for multi-sheet Design Web Format ™ (DWF ™) files and optimize the exchange of drawings over the Internet. You can view and trace DWF files but do not edit them. Digital signatures and password protection secure your files. The management of CAD standards ensures that the entire team uses the same drawing standards.

· Manage efficiently: Track, manage, and lend your licenses with the new AutoCAD® 2004 tools. Designers can safely borrow a network server software license to work off-line on a laptop.

AutoCAD® 2004, the fastest and easiest-to-use version of AutoCAD, offers new and improved features designed to make design data creation and sharing easier and faster, and to optimize the management of your software.

General information
AutoCAD 2004 – Create and share your design data more quickly and easily than ever before.
AutoCAD® 2004 software is the 2D drawing and 3D design tool most used by designers worldwide as any other CAD software. In addition to its native DWG compatibility, it allows you to customize or program the software or add an add-on application to meet your design requirements. In addition, AutoCAD now includes new and improved productivity tools, graphical presentation tools, standards checking tools and much more. These tools will accelerate and facilitate the creation and exchange of design data.
Quickly create
From opening and sending files to editing annotations, to creating presentation drawings, speed is essential in daily tasks. New and improved tools that will accelerate your work processes include:
· Express Tools that reduces the number of steps required to complete a task.
· Tool palettes, which you can customize with the most frequently performed operations.
· Optimized DWG file format, which speeds file opening, recording and transmission.
· Integration of true colors and presentation graphics, allowing you to create high-quality presentations directly in AutoCAD.
Share easily
Many prospects, a solution. AutoCAD software makes design data exchange between team members safer and more efficient. It thus helps the team to gather its skills to achieve a common goal. New and enhanced data exchange capabilities include:
· Improved multi-sheet Design (DWF ™) file format, which secures the transmission of drawings over the Internet between members of a team who wish to view and draw drawings without modifying them. The DWF format is lightweight and offers the same visual fidelity as a native DWG file.
· Digital signatures are used to validate the origin, authenticity and integrity of your drawings.
· Password protection protects your plans.
· AutoCAD® DesignCenter ™ and DesignCenter Online allow you to share pre-designed data with other team members.
· The CAD Standards Manager helps you ensure that the entire team works with the same design standards.
Manage effectively
Manage your licenses efficiently with new software inventory tools, including:
· Autodeskо Product Manager tracks the version, serial number, and PC numbers of multiple licenses.
· FLEXlm® Network License Manager (NLM) allows designers to borrow a license from the server to work off-line and automatically renew the license upon completion of the borrowing period.
