Additional 2D drafting tools are now available like single-click fill and hatch. More verification tools have been added for bounding box and curvature circles; support now exists for multiple viewports, background gradients and images; performance improvements have been made to large assemblies; 3Dconnexion’s SpaceNavigator “3D mouse” is now supported; and TurboCAD Mac files (V1, V2 and V3) are supported.
