Q - question

What features are not available in the 32-bit version of AutoCAD 2017 and 2016?

A - answer Both AutoCAD 2017 and 2016 are still available also in the 32-bit version, which has access only to a limited amount of memory. This is one the reasons that the 32-bit version lacks some advanced 3D functionality.

The following functions are missing in AutoCAD 32-bit, compared to the 64-bit version:

  • attaching coordination models (from Navisworks)
  • attaching point clouds (3D laser scan)
  • model documentation - automatic generation of 2D views and sections
  • direct 3D printing with Print Studio

Due to the limited memory size available for 32-bit applications, rendering of some complex 3D scenes may fail, and even some DWG drawings may fail to open if they contain complex objects with individual size over 256MB (uncompressed).
