Equipped with the right applications, a computer can be of great help in virtually any domain of activity. When it comes to designing and precision, no other tool is as accurate as a computer. Moreover, specialized applications such as AutoCAD give you the possibility to design nearly anything ranging from art, to complex mechanical parts or even buildings.
Suitable for business environments and experienced users
After a decent amount of time spent installing the application on your system, you are ready to fire it up. Thanks to the office suite like interface, all of its features are cleverly organized in categories. At a first look, it looks easy enough to use, but the abundance of features it comes equipped with leaves room for second thoughts.
Create 2D and 3D objects
You can make use of basic geometrical shapes to define your objects, as well as draw custom ones. Needless to say that you can take advantage of a multitude of tools that aim to enhance precision. A grid can be enabled so that you can easily snap elements, as well as adding anchor points to fully customize shapes.
With a little imagination and patience on your behalf, nearly anything can be achieved. Available tools allow you to create 3D objects from scratch and have them fully enhanced with high-quality textures. A powerful navigation pane is put at your disposal so that you can carefully position the camera to get a clearer view of the area of interest.
Various export possibilities
Similar to a modern web browser, each project is displayed in its own tab. This comes in handy, especially for comparison views. Moreover, layouts and layers also play important roles, as it makes objects handling a little easier.
Sine the application is not the easiest to carry around, requiring a slightly sophisticated machine to properly run, there are several export options put at your disposal so that the projects itself can be moved around.
Aside from the application specific format, you can save as an image file of multiple types, PDF, FBX and a few more. Additionally, it can be sent via email, directly printed out on a sheet of paper, or even sent to a 3D printing service, if available.
To end with
All in all, AutoCAD remains one of the top applications used by professionals to achieve great precision with projects of nearly any type. It encourages usage with incredible offers for student licenses so you get acquainted with its abundance of features early on. A lot can be said about what it can and can't do, but the true surprise lies in discovering it step-by-step.
Today, many professional engineers use AutoCAD and its related programs to create technical drawings and other types of engineering drawings and drawings for architects, builders, model builders, and students. Professionals of all types use AutoCAD for complex, multidimensional drawings, including rendering, animation, and rendering with parametric data.
AutoCAD Map 3D
AutoCAD Map 3D is a CAD extension for creating maps in three dimensions (3D). In addition to creating accurate maps of the world, buildings, or other landmarks, AutoCAD Map 3D includes tools to capture and edit 3D images and to generate and edit 3D maps. AutoCAD Map 3D does not require knowledge of 3D geometry and requires only minor programming skills.
AutoCAD Map 3D Version History
AutoCAD Map 3D was introduced in the 2013 release of AutoCAD. The first release included free student and professional versions.
AutoCAD Map 3D has been updated to AutoCAD 2018.
History of AutoCAD Map 3D
AutoCAD Map 3D first appeared in AutoCAD 2012. The new AutoCAD Map 3D introduced new features, including the ability to create 3D maps of the world, the ability to capture images of 3D objects, and the ability to edit 3D maps with editing tools that correspond with the native tools in AutoCAD. AutoCAD Map 3D also improved on the existing map rendering capabilities in AutoCAD.
The original AutoCAD Map 3D is a Windows application. The AutoCAD Map 3D 2015 release allows AutoCAD users to create and edit 2D and 3D maps in the Windows desktop.
AutoCAD Map 3D 2017–2018 release added new features, including the ability to import and export Map 3D objects.

How Do I Use AutoCAD Map 3D?
AutoCAD Map 3D is a program extension to AutoCAD that allows
Technically, AutoCAD is an application that supports PCL 6 or Drawing Exchange Format (DXF), a vector-based file format that allows working with drawings and models. It is used in product design and information management in architecture, engineering, construction, and manufacturing. A DXF is the foundation of the DesignCenter.
Some drawing and presentation features can be accessed directly from the command line using a script or batch file.
AutoCAD 2012 and later support an “extended” metafile (EMF) format (specifically.EML).
AutoCAD LT is a limited edition of AutoCAD that lacks the drawing editing, animation, or rendering features of the full version.
AutoCAD LT does not support DXF files from other CAD programs.
Autodesk started off as AutoDesk, Inc. in 1983, developing programs for building and construction. AutoDesk was founded by Bill Murdock, Paul G. Arnold, and five other students at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
AutoDesk first shipped CAD software in 1985 for the Atari ST computer.
In 1990, AutoDesk bought the rights to the original CAD program, Unigraphics, from its original developer, Autodesk, Inc.
In August 2004, as part of a restructuring of the company, AutoDesk changed its name to Autodesk, Inc. and split the company into two entities: Autodesk, Inc. (formerly AutoDesk) and AutoDesk Software.
While there are some former members of Autodesk, Inc. that remain with the company, Autodesk, Inc. remains Autodesk Autodesk’s current president and CEO is Andrew Anagnost. The company is headquartered in San Rafael, California and operates offices in Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Spain, and the United States.
In July 2013, Autodesk Inc. announced a merger with Hexagon AB to form Hexagon Autodesk, in a deal worth $2.38 billion. The merger received regulatory approval from the European Commission in April 2014, and was completed in August 2014.

Is it possible to put dot on the end of a string literal?
I was reading the C programming language book from Peter van der Linden and encountered the following:
If you think about this, you’ll realize that a string literal does
have a NULL character in it. It’s just a constant. If you want a
string without the zero, you can say
Can someone tell me why we need to write “abc” instead of “abc\0”?
is a string literal, and thus has a string termination character at the end.
\0 is a null character; it’s a character, but it has no specific meaning in a string (it’s just a character, i.e. a symbol which serves to indicate the start of a sequence of characters; in other words, it indicates that the string starts there), it’s just a sequence of zeros with no meaning.
is not a string literal, it is actually a string that starts with a literal “abc”,
