Look out for Update 1 for AutoCAD 2009-based verticals

If you have Communications Center disabled (this is quite common, it seems) or you’re not currently using your 2009-based vertical product, you may be unaware that Autodesk has released versions of Update 1 (formerly known as SP1) for the architectural and civil variants of AutoCAD 2009. Expect the other verticals to follow soon. A visit to the Autodesk site and search for “Update 1” currently returns 18 results. As usual, read the Readme first and exercise caution (or even paranoia) before installing.


  1. You’re not paranoid if they are out to get you 🙂

    Watch out for the black helicopters

  2. Ah, but just because they’re out to get you doesn’t mean you’re not paranoid.

  3. does Autocad 2009 allow mass calculations for centre of gravity of components ??

  4. AutoCAD has a Massprop command that lists a Centroid property for 3D solids. This is only useful for objects of uniform mass. This is not new to 2009; it has remained unchanged since it was introduced by Release 13.
