Autodesk Impression is a graphics application developed by Autodesk, Inc. This tool allows users to create graphics for presentations, animations, slideshows, and videos. It enables them to build graphic effects from CAD files in either DWG or DWF file format. It also allows users to import revised CAD geometry.
It is an application that is able to read CAD data, which includes blocks, hatches, and layers. In addition, it has pre-built blocks and styles to help users in their projects. Users can make graphical presentations by adding blocks from the built-in block libraries. Also, they can customize, save, and share styles created and stored in the libraries. Saved data in DWF files can be shared in another file format, such as PDF, PSD, EPS, JPG, BPM, and PNG.
This program is designed with an easy-to-use and intuitive interface. It features a toolbar and a layer palette that are similar to other Autodesk CAD-compatible products. To create a new graphics project from an existing CAD file, users simply launch AutoCAD and export the CAD file to a DWG or DWF file. Users can then launch Autodesk Impression and open the file. Likewise, users can save files in CAD format and export these to AutoCAD.
