Autodesk Updates 123D Design to 1.7

The 123D Design team at Autodesk recently released an update to their free solid modeling application to 1.7. In this version, the added new “Smart Alignment” tools which makes aligning objects really fast and easy using a very intuitive UI/UX similar to TinkerCAD. Another interesting feature is the ability to convert meshes into solids. In their press release, they show a tinkercad design being converted to a solid. This is going to be extremely convenient for folks in Tinkercad who want to bring their designs into 123D to add chamfers, fillets and shells. The update is free for both Windows and Mac. Check out their full release on the 123D Design blog.

123D Design 1.7 – A really solid release

We are really proud to announce the release of 123D Design 1.7 (Windows and Mac).

Definitely our best release ever, but you will think that everybody says that for a new release, a new record, etc.

Let me explain what makes this release our most epic one. Two key elements: Tinkercad and Solids!!!

For some time, we have received a lot of feedback about some interactions in Tinkercad that make a lot of sense, and we should adopt them in 123D Design. That’s exactly what we did with two very important ones: Align and Scale.

The new Align tool is very similar to Tinkercad’s Align tool. When multiple objects are selected, it displays some options for aligning to edges or center. You will get a preview before you need to click on your choice.
