Alias Sketch for AutoCAD Technology Preview enables you to take advantage of the power of Alias technology directly in AutoCAD software. Part of the Autodesk solution for Digital Prototyping, Autodesk Alias Design software is the industrial design standard for communicating designs easily via sketches, illustrations, photorealistic renderings, and animation. The Alias Sketch for AutoCAD Technology Preview provides fully integrated illustration capabilities to enhance the AutoCAD workflow, enabling AutoCAD users to use freehand drawing techniques and assemble multiple images to make a final image.
The Alias Sketch for AutoCAD Technology Preview helps you modify and create composite imagery, create blank screen illustrations, and make freehand markups on top of AutoCAD 3D geometry. In addition, you can communicate via illustrations as well as DWG files. For example, you can create artwork or import images on top of 3D geometry to graphically express the context of designs, something previously requiring multiple applications to achieve.
