Autodesk Homestyler for 3D home/garden design, AutoCad 2011?

Mac AutoCAD 2011 beta may be in the works

Autodesk has released an online home and garden design application, Homestyler, and is rumored to be about to release a Mac-native version of AutoCAD 2011, according to Architosh. Homestyler is a cloud-based 3Ddesign application oriented toward non-professionals but capable of exporting 2D/3D info in Autodesk DWG and Revit versions. It quickly creates floor plans with manufacturer-based items, using drag-and-drop to relocate items. It has been released as a public beta and is free.

Autodesk AutoCAD 2011 for the Mac may be coming as a public beta as evidenced by code comments in some recent ObjectARX 2011 SDK files, according to the same publication. Evidence for a Mac port can be seen in both comments and changes made to the files so that they can work with the GCC compiler and the Mac OS X libraries.

    AutoCAD 2011 is Interesting but a little late?

    While the engineering consulting firm I work for has been using AutoCAD for years now, we will be moving into Revit in the not too distant future. Truthfully, while Autocad 2011 will be nice for some, Revit is the future, and they probably should focus there attentions that direction for Mac.
