AutoCAD 2013 System Requirements
File format

New file format "AutoCAD 2013 Drawing" is used.

AutoCAD 2013 introduces a new file format that includes changes to the thumbnail preview file format, as well as new controls for graphics caching.
Thumbnail previews in the new AutoCAD 2013 DWG file format are now stored as PNG images, providing higher-quality thumbnail previews in a smaller file size. Image resolution is still controlled by the THUMBSIZE system variable. However, the maximum valid value has increased from 2 to 8. If you do not wish to include thumbnail previews in the drawing you can still use the RASTERPREVIEW system variable (or the new THUMBSAVE) to disable them. Note that only 3D drawings make use of a larger thumbnail. The UPDDATETHUMBSNOW and UPDATETHUMBNAIL system variables are no longer needed and have been removed from AutoCAD 2013.

When you save a drawing containing 3D Solids in the new AutoCAD 2013 file format, a graphics cache file is automatically stored in a folder named “GraphicsCache” under your user app data folder. Two new system variables, CACHEMAXTOTALSIZE and CACHEMAXFILES, enable you manage the cache files.

Command Line Enhancements

The command line has been enhanced. Color and transparency can be changed. It works better as undocked and can be made smaller. It features a semi-transparent prompt history that can display up to 50 lines.

Hatch Editor

Editing multiple hatch objects can now be done using the contextual
Hatch Editor ribbon tab.

Array Enhancements

Several enhancements, ease of use and new grips.

In‐Canvas Property Preview

When selecting objects and making changes of properties like color and transparency a preview is seen directly in the drawing.

Layout and Model Viewports

The viewports panel on the ribbon is renamed to be specific to Model Viewports or Layout Viewports. Model Viewports are accessible from the View ribbon tab and are relevant when creating viewports in model space. Standard model space viewport configurations are easily accessible from a drop-down menu. Layout Viewports are accessible from the Layout ribbon tab and are relevant when creating viewports
on a layout.

Point Cloud Support

Attach and manage point cloud files in same way as with xrefs, images, and other externally referenced files.

The Attach Point Cloud dialog box has been updated to provide a preview image and detailed information about the selected point cloud.

There is a new contextual Point Cloud ribbon tab appears with all the necessary Point Cloud tools when a Point Cloud is selected.

A new bounding box appears when you select a point cloud (making it easier to visualize its position in 3D space).

If intensity data is included, you can use the analysis tools to view point intensity with different color schemes.

Point Clouds can be clipped. Additional options enable you to specify whether the bounding box is displayed and provide easy access to the External References manager.

The Properties palette is updated to include new point cloud properties such as intensity and clipping.

Point cloud indexing is significantly enhanced in AutoCAD 2013 to provide a smoother and more efficient workflow when working with raw scan files. You can index scan files from major industrial scanner companies, including Leica and Topcon in addition to Faro.

The new Create Point Cloud File dialog box provides an intuitive and flexible interface to select and index raw point scan files. You can select multiple files to batch index and even merge them into a single point cloud file. When creating PCG files, you can specify various Index settings, including RGB, Intensity, normals, and custom attributes.

When you save from AutoCAD 2013 to an older version DWGTM file, a message alerts you that the attached PCG file will be re-indexed and degraded to be compatible with the previous version of the drawing file format. The new file is renamed to a corresponding incremental file name.
