Command line search — Architecture styles AutoCAD has added more features to the Command Line search, and AutoCAD Architecture has extended this to allow faster and easier access to all architecture styles in a drawing. To customize the search features on the left of the Command Line select the wrench icon and choose Input Search Options. In the Input Search Options dialogue box select Architecture. Once this is checked, type in any part of styling on the Command Line, this place list of all the styles that contain that word.

For example, AutoCAD Architecture formerly Architectural Desktop permits architectural designers to draw 3D objects, such as walls, doors, and windows, with more intelligent data associated with them rather than simple objects, such as lines and circles. The data can be programmed to represent specific architectural products sold in the construction industry, or extracted into a data file for pricing, materials estimation, and other values related to the objects represented. Additional tools generate standard 2D drawings, such as elevations and sections, from a 3D architectural model. Similarly, Civil Design, Civil Design 3D, and Civil Design Professional support data-specific objects facilitating easy standard civil engineering calculations and representations. Civil 3D was later developed and Land Desktop was retired.
