AutoCAD Crack + Free Download [Win/Mac]
Initially released in 1985 for the Intel 8086 family of microcomputers and used only by U.S. customers, AutoCAD underwent several revisions over the next two decades to expand its capabilities and make it available internationally. Today, the latest version of AutoCAD is AutoCAD 2020.
Today, AutoCAD is part of a category of commercial CAD applications called 3D CAD. An increasing number of firms now offer such applications. The growth of 3D CAD is due in part to increased demand for 3D modeling and printing, and is now a $2.3 billion market, according to ABI Research.
Some of the major AutoCAD competitors include Creo 3D, Vectorworks, Pro/ENGINEER, and Revit.
Unlike the other 3D CAD programs, AutoCAD includes a significant amount of engineering design data. AutoCAD is widely used in the construction, automotive, and aerospace industries. The annual AutoCAD World Conference brings together engineers from many industries who use AutoCAD.
History of AutoCAD
In 1982, engineers at Pitney Bowes created a program to model parts for the company’s first laser printer. They called it PTool, and it was soon renamed HP Toolbox, but in 1987 the name was changed to AutoCAD (for Autocadpletes), reflecting a new emphasis on the software’s usefulness to engineers, and to the development of the first significant commercial 3D CAD program.
The software’s initial purpose was to automate the manual drawing of mechanical parts, such as wire harnesses, for use by the company’s laser printers. Because engineers also used manual drawing software for 2D drafting, Autodesk tried to create a program that would do both simultaneously. The program was designed to run on the then-new Intel 8086 family of microcomputers.
The first version of AutoCAD ran on IBM PC compatible microcomputers using the Microsoft DOS operating system, and required 6.5 MB of hard disk space. The first version of AutoCAD (1985) was capable of 2D drafting and rudimentary 3D plotting, and could import and export DWG files. In 1987, Autodesk released AutoCAD for the IBM PC and Microsoft Windows 3.0 platforms.
The company began selling AutoCAD in the United States in 1986. Initially
In February 2014, Autodesk announced that support for AutoCAD Free Download in Microsoft Office would cease on October 28, 2018.
On April 9, 2012, Autodesk announced that it would be dropping the existing direct connection from AutoCAD Serial Key to Microsoft SQL Server. Instead, users can connect to AutoCAD via ODBC or OleDB.
Over the course of 2006 and 2007, Autodesk used their Web engine called eCommunications or EC to present AutoCAD over the Web. This was an open-source effort based on the open-source Tk toolkit. This project was replaced in late 2008 by the new Autodesk ePlatform.
AutoCAD was originally created by John Walker for the National Center for Supercomputing Applications in 1987. In 1989, the National Center for Supercomputing Applications merged with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s National Center for Supercomputing Applications to become the National Center for Supercomputing Applications & University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign. In 1996, the National Center for Supercomputing Applications and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign purchased the company Autodesk, and renamed the product AutoCAD.
AutoCAD LT was initially a separate product from AutoCAD until it was merged into AutoCAD in 1997.
AutoCAD is available for Microsoft Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X operating systems. While the current version of AutoCAD was designed for Microsoft Windows, AutoCAD LT was originally designed to be used on IBM OS/2 and Microsoft Windows. In 1998, the name “AutoCAD” was changed to “AutoCAD LT” in order to comply with the US trademark law regarding product names.
In April 2000, Autodesk launched AutoCAD R15 for Internet Explorer 4 and Internet Explorer 5 on Windows 2000. This was followed in June 2000 with a Beta version for Internet Explorer 6 and Autodesk’s Web Services Developer Kit.
In 2002, Autodesk launched AutoCAD Architecture and AutoCAD Electrical, as two new business units within the company. AutoCAD Architecture was developed to address engineering problems in architecture, engineering, and construction companies, while AutoCAD Electrical was targeted at electrical contractors, electrical engineers, and electrical subcontractors. AutoCAD LT Architecture and AutoCAD LT Electrical are available for free. AutoCAD Architecture requires a paid subscription. AutoCAD Electrical is
