Omnix International, the MENA region’s leading provider of computer aided engineering solutions, has announced the Middle East availability of Autodesk’s new AutoCAD 2015 edition, the latest release from one of the world’s leading Computer Aided Design (CAD) applications. Dubbed as the most ambitious redesign of the AutoCAD interface in over a decade, the enhancements included in this latest software release will allow customers to connect workflows across integrated desktop, cloud and mobile solutions. Also as an added first, AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT are now also being made available on a ‘Pay-as-you-Go’ subscription basis. 

According to Omnix International senior executives, AutoCAD 2015 offers a more refined interface that allows for a richer user experience. It is also presented in a darker and more modern look that lets colors stand out and reduce user eyestrain. In addition, the New Tab page feature allows users the ability to quickly open new and existing drawings, while ribbon galleries save time and clicks by visually accessing drawing content directly from the ribbon. 

“Users of AutoCAD in the Middle East region rely heavily on this design software solution for production and to stay organized. Looking to keep abreast of the latest design technologies, we are pleased to announce the Middle East availability of AutoCAD 2015—which features the most ambitious redesign of the AutoCAD interface in over 10 years,” said Dr. Jayant Deshpande, Director - CAE Division, Omnix International. “With the release of this new edition, design professionals can now design almost any idea imaginable with maximum productivity and connectivity. The AutoCAD platform, particularly in this latest version, continues to provide users with great flexibility--allowing them to use it for everything, which ranges from initial schematic design drawings and consultant collaboration to reviewing DWG files with contractors.” 

Some of the newer features offered in the AutoCAD 2015 edition include the ability to format text within a drawing similar to a word processor, with features like automatic bullets and numbering and super/subscript; the introduction of the new Autodesk Application Manager, a new tool that informs users of product updates and extensions and seamlessly downloads and installs them and the use of TrustedDWG technology, the original and most accurate way to store and exchange design data. Lastly, AutoCAD 2015 also offers easier ways to work with online maps and other geographic location information, as well as point cloud displays and other reality computing information. 

AutoCAD 2015 is available in three versions;  

Autodesk AutoCAD LT, which contains essential 2D drafting and detailing tools.

Autodesk AutoCAD, which adds 3D modeling tools and point cloud support.

AutoCAD Design Suite Standard edition, which lets users extend their AutoCAD design workflow from pre-concept to completion with AutoCAD Raster Design and visual communication solutions. 

For the first time, AutoCAD is now available through Desktop Subscription plans that allow pay-as-you go monthly, quarterly and annual purchase options. It’s never been easier for customers to license AutoCAD with a variety of purchase options to meet unique business needs. AutoCAD Desktop Subscription provides a low cost of entry, makes it easier for customers to ramp up or scale down, provides access to the latest tools and gives customers budget flexibility.
