AutoCAD [Mac/Win]

Equipped with the right applications, a computer can be of great help in virtually any domain of activity. When it comes to designing and precision, no other tool is as accurate as a computer. Moreover, specialized applications such as AutoCAD give you the possibility to design nearly anything ranging from art, to complex mechanical parts or even buildings.
Suitable for business environments and experienced users
After a decent amount of time spent installing the application on your system, you are ready to fire it up. Thanks to the office suite like interface, all of its features are cleverly organized in categories. At a first look, it looks easy enough to use, but the abundance of features it comes equipped with leaves room for second thoughts.
Create 2D and 3D objects
You can make use of basic geometrical shapes to define your objects, as well as draw custom ones. Needless to say that you can take advantage of a multitude of tools that aim to enhance precision. A grid can be enabled so that you can easily snap elements, as well as adding anchor points to fully customize shapes.
With a little imagination and patience on your behalf, nearly anything can be achieved. Available tools allow you to create 3D objects from scratch and have them fully enhanced with high-quality textures. A powerful navigation pane is put at your disposal so that you can carefully position the camera to get a clearer view of the area of interest.
Various export possibilities
Similar to a modern web browser, each project is displayed in its own tab. This comes in handy, especially for comparison views. Moreover, layouts and layers also play important roles, as it makes objects handling a little easier.
Sine the application is not the easiest to carry around, requiring a slightly sophisticated machine to properly run, there are several export options put at your disposal so that the projects itself can be moved around.
Aside from the application specific format, you can save as an image file of multiple types, PDF, FBX and a few more. Additionally, it can be sent via email, directly printed out on a sheet of paper, or even sent to a 3D printing service, if available.
To end with
All in all, AutoCAD remains one of the top applications used by professionals to achieve great precision with projects of nearly any type. It encourages usage with incredible offers for student licenses so you get acquainted with its abundance of features early on. A lot can be said about what it can and can't do, but the true surprise lies in discovering it step-by-step.

AutoCAD Crack+ [32|64bit] (2022)


AutoCAD was conceived by British inventor Bill Harrison at the Electronics Design Group, a British company that had developed optical character recognition software, and whose president was one of AutoCAD’s initial customers. The first version of AutoCAD, a VGA graphics-based app on an 8088-based PC running on DOS, was released in December 1982. This was an internal, in-house development, not a commercial product.

Autodesk was founded in 1981 by a group of nine MIT alumni, including the three co-founders of that school’s Computer Graphics Lab (Thomas Howard, Bill Harrison and Larry Lenoir), and four graduates of Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Software Engineering.

The first commercial AutoCAD product was released in 1983 as a desktop app for PC DOS. A version for the Apple II and IBM PC/XT was released in 1985. The Mac version was released in 1990.

Two years later, the first version of AutoCAD LT, a stand-alone version of the software that runs on a floppy disk, was released for the PC. This version was largely rewritten to be compatible with the Windows operating system, and added new features.

In 1986, AutoCAD merged with the Adabas company, which was founded by Bill Harrison and one of his PhD students from MIT, Brian DeBrel. Following the acquisition, Adabas was merged into AutoDesk. After DeBrel’s death in 1995, Autodesk was renamed to Autodesk Inc.

In 1994, Autodesk launched AutoCAD Revit, a product intended to compete with ArchiCAD. AutoCAD Revit is a 3D architectural design product that was introduced in 1998.

Since then, Autodesk has released several new releases of AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT. In 2007, Autodesk acquired the software program Grasshopper, an industrial design software package used by Tesla, Fisker Automotive, Nissan, Chevrolet, and Ford.

Today, Autodesk is a global software company with a portfolio of leading software solutions including AutoCAD, Revit, Maya, and Smoke. Autodesk also offers visualization, construction, and cloud-based products and services, including cloud-based Autodesk Forge.

AutoCAD R14

Autodesk released AutoCAD R14 on November 15, 2009. AutoCAD R14 supports Mac OS X operating system as well as Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems. Many features were added to AutoCAD and the Update Manager was extended to allow unattended installation of AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT. Other features include native.Net 1.1.3 support and many bug fixes.

AutoCAD R14 Release Notes


3D Wireframe

Enhanced 3D wireframe has been introduced in AutoCAD. The new feature uses a 3D drawing object to help you visualize a 3D model, which looks like a thin wireframe. You can preview the 3D wireframe as you manipulate it, and you can view it from any direction. You can scale, rotate, and move the wireframe, and change its appearance. You can change the thickness of the wireframe, and whether or not the wireframe is visible. You can hide wireframe from the viewport and export wireframe images as JPEG, TIFF, and GIF.

This feature is available with AutoCAD 2010 and later, and the most recent version of AutoCAD LT.

Check Sum

Check Sum is a function that checks the integrity of all the sheets, and highlights the difference between the original document and the checked one.

Check Sum is available for AutoCAD 2009, 2010, and 2011 as well as AutoCAD LT.


Revisions is a feature that you can use to make multiple changes to a drawing at once. AutoCAD LT 2007 introduced Revisions. Revisions provides a way to store multiple drawing versions in the drawing database, and enables you to go back and change any drawing in the drawing database. Revisions makes it easy to modify drawings that have been changed in the past without losing other edits.

Revisions can be used with any drawing type, including presentation and plotters. Revisions are also available in AutoCAD 2009 and later as well as in AutoCAD LT.


AutoCAD LT supports importing and exporting XML, OLE, and dBase3 databases. XML is an XML-based object format for 2D drawings, 3D models, and drawings with information embedded. OLE is
