Benefits of the Map 3D Toolset

See how the Map 3D toolset provided up to 60% overall productivity gain* compared with basic AutoCAD, when these tasks were performed by an experienced AutoCAD user.

In this productivity study, you will see how the Map 3D toolset saves time through:

  • Offering three mapping/GIS workspaces: Planning and Analysis Workspace, Maintenance Workspace, or 2D Drafting Workspace.
  • Providing coordinate geometry commands that can use bearings, azimuth, and deflection, combined with distances, to create geometry and parcels
  • Linking database data to block attributes to display correct, up-to-date information.
  • The Map Explorer tab providing a full visual breakdown of the database and the tables linked to the drawing.
  • Using the MAPIMPORT command to be able to use the ESRI® ArcView™ ShapeFile in its native format.
  • Any mapping/GIS drawings including objects created with the FDO features stylisation engine.

*As with all performance tests, results may vary based on machine, operating system, filters, and even source material. While every effort has been made to make the tests as fair and objective as possible, your results may differ. Product information and specifications are subject to change without notice.
