Autodesk recently released an update that has some really exciting features, however, the update is strictly for subscription-only users. Well, this means that I cannot even provide you a link (because one does not exist) to this update. So how do you get it? You can only find it in the Autodesk Desktop App. It is titled, "AutoCAD 2017.1 English Update 64-bit."
Some of the new features that I find most exciting are. . .
- You can now import a PDF file that contains SHX geometry. Several popular SHX fonts are supported.
- The performance and reliability of 3DORBIT are improved for rendered visual styles, especially for models with a large number of small blocks containing edges and facets.
