AutoCAD Crack Activation Key Download [Win/Mac]

Although AutoCAD can be used by students and hobbyists, professional users make up the majority of the software’s total user base. AutoCAD includes many standard tools for professional drafting and design, but is also used by professionals in several other fields. AutoCAD is used by architects, structural engineers, mechanical engineers, civil engineers, GIS professionals, geologists, interior designers, and landscape architects, among many other disciplines.

AutoCAD is also used in the field of instructional design and in user experience design, and is used to create educational materials such as educational videos, animations, and handouts.


AutoCAD was originally developed as a drawing application for the Apple II personal computer and first shipped with the 1982 version 1.1. The software was originally marketed as a design aid for engineers and architects, and was used to create detailed plans and diagrams. The original design for AutoCAD included a command structure similar to that of a computer operating system, and the developers also intended to add command options for view switching and editing as well as adding extra features.

In the original versions of AutoCAD, each user was given a separate display connected to an Apple II, and the application’s menu system was handled by the Apple II’s BASIC program, with the program asking users for input via the BASIC command line. In the early versions, users would be able to choose between using screen coordinates (pixels) or object coordinates (invisible, dimensioned entities), and users could also define different viewpoints for their drawings. Additional features were added to AutoCAD over time, including the ability to create cross-sections, special shapes for AutoCAD, and rendering tools.

AutoCAD was created in Chicago, Illinois at the Suggest Software Design Company, where it was first developed by an experienced artist and developer, Richard Scarnaglioni, and a small group of programmers, including David Wicks, who later founded The DHTML Corporation (1994–2000). Originally named “Door-to-Door” (dt2dt), the developers named it after the first line of a famous song by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. The initial code was written in 1972 by Scarnaglioni, and the first working version was delivered in November of the same year.

In September 1982, a few months after it was released, the first public beta version of AutoCAD 1.1 was released, and the

AutoCAD Crack+ [Latest] 2022

AutoCAD R12 introduced an object-oriented programming model, making it easier for Autodesk Inc. and third parties to write applications that interact with Autodesk’s CAD software, AutoCAD.

The major new features of AutoCAD R12 are as follows:

AutoCAD R12 introduces a new level of object-oriented programming known as the “Smart Document” model. Smart Documents have a unique identification number. This model allows AutoCAD to recognize information across different drawing files.
AutoCAD R12 introduces new ways to control the display of drawing components using functions such as Visual LISP, Visual LISP Python, Visual LISP Visual Basic, Visual LISP.NET, Visual LISP ObjectARX and AutoCAD Java.
AutoCAD R12 introduces new ways of developing applications for the AutoCAD software such as scripting, programs and macros.
AutoCAD R12 introduced a new drawing concept for Construction Documents. The new technique automates the drawing of construction plans and offers additional flexibility. The new technique can be used with AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT.

AutoCAD was also released for Windows tablet computers in October 2013.

What’s New In?

Simplify your drawing process. All your settings are stored in a single place, so you never have to worry about changing them again. Even better, you can now view multiple drawings at once, no matter where they are stored.

Easily share your drawing ideas. Share your work with colleagues, clients, and fellow students with AutoCAD 2023.

Customizable 3D lighting. The ability to customize your lighting environment in 3D.

New features in AutoCAD History

Pick up where you left off with your last drawing. No more having to finish up a drawing in a new file. AutoCAD History lets you resume your last drawing from any file without having to recreate the file. (video: 1:42 min.)

Save time working on your drawings. AutoCAD History records everything you do in AutoCAD. When you save a drawing, it stores it as an AutoCAD drawing history item. When you load a drawing, you can resume any point in the history and pick up right where you left off. You can even view your previous sessions in the history window. (video: 1:36 min.)

Working in multiple designs:

Get your bearings with CADLAB. Use AutoCAD to build an initial design, and add additional CADLAB views to give you more information about what you’re working on. There’s no need to switch to an external program or view.

Use multiple screens simultaneously:

Add information from a CADLAB view to a drawing. Now, you can display CADLAB views in the drawing window. (video: 3:45 min.)

Project drawings onto the computer screen. With 2D project drawings, you can now use them as virtual drawings. Simply create a 2D project on the screen, and add more drawing features. There’s no need to generate an actual file. (video: 2:15 min.)

Create interactive 3D models:

Use AutoCAD to build your 3D models. AutoCAD History supports both 2D and 3D project drawings, so you can create a project from a 2D drawing and add it to an existing 3D model, or vice versa. (video: 4:22 min.)

Use multiple screens simultaneously:

Add information from a CADLAB view to a drawing. Now, you can display CADLAB views in the drawing window. (video: 2
