Get rid of the unnecessary tools cluttering your screen.

F/X CAD, in conjunction with Land F/X, leaves you with all the fundamental tools to design more efficiently.

F/X CAD brings you the latest AutoCAD
improvements for 2018.




Selection boxes previously only worked on objects currently visible on the screen. You’re now free to zoom in for a precise second click, grabbing all objects within the selection box with increased accuracy.

New drawing
file type.


F/X CAD is a genuine AutoCAD engine with native DWG read-write capability. Freely access any DWG file you receive – including the new 2018 file type, which increases the efficiency of opening and saving items such as attribute objects.

auto saving.


The new file type also allows you to change your auto-save process to only save the parts of the drawing that have changed. Avoid auto-save slowdowns when working with larger, complex drawings.

Linetype gap


In previous versions, you couldn’t snap to the gap in a dashed line. Now you can! This small improvement will make a big difference for you on a daily basis.

Xref layer overrides.


F/X CAD 2018 highlights not only which layers have overrides, but also which properties, such as color or frozen state, you’ve changed. You can then right-click to reset the property back to what it is in the Xref.

Xref Layer Overrides.


Everybody overrides the layer properties of their xrefs. Now F/X CAD 2018 highlights not only which layers have these overrides, but also which properties, like colour or frozen state, that you’ve changed. You can then right-click to reset the property back to what it is in the xref. Also, VISRETAIN has been enhanced via VISRETAINMODE, allowing you to control which properties are retained.

Fix broken


Xrefs now default to a relative path, making it much quicker to assemble your drawing files. They’ll even list as relative if you haven’t saved yet, then update as soon as you save. Need to reorganize your entire drawing folder? Use the new find-and-replace feature to instantly adapt all paths in a drawing to your new folder hierarchy.

Tools organized for you.
