AutoCAD 20.0 Crack+ X64

What does AutoCAD do?

AutoCAD is a CAD application that was initially designed to provide a drafting and visualization tool for architects, interior designers and construction professionals. AutoCAD is used for a wide variety of projects, including building construction, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, vehicle design, interior design and landscape architecture.

It is capable of creating 2D and 3D drawings. In addition to 3D models, it is also capable of converting 2D drawings into 3D models, using a technique called ‘reverse drafting’, which is the reverse of drafting.

AutoCAD has advanced 3D modeling features, the most popular of which is called ‘3D modeling’. It is a feature that allows creating and editing three dimensional (3D) objects using a point, line, and surface feature and is mainly used to draw objects such as houses, buildings, landscapes, furniture, machinery, plants and other industrial items.

It is also used to create virtual prototypes of products, using the feature called ‘simulation’.

AutoCAD is also capable of creating and modifying 2D drawings, such as drawings of architectural plans, blueprints, and shop floor drawings.

AutoCAD has powerful features for graphics, which are used for creating more interactive presentations. This includes features such as imported photos, textures, retouching, and 3D views. This makes it easy to present work to clients, management, colleagues, or customers.

AutoCAD also has a 3D modeling capability, which includes a wide range of tools that are used to create 3D drawings and models.

Another prominent feature of AutoCAD is its ‘DWG editor’, which is an editing tool.

The DWG editor is a popular feature of AutoCAD and it allows editing of AutoCAD drawings in a new way. It facilitates adding, deleting, and replacing components, changing the position of objects, and correcting the text that is associated with the objects.

Unlike many other CAD software applications, AutoCAD also offers several editing functions that are used to edit and modify drawings, including locking features.

AutoCAD also offers several drawing editing features that can be used to edit and modify drawings in the DWG editor. Some of these features include line, arc, polyline, rectangle,

AutoCAD 2015: General reference

This article is concerned with general information relating to AutoCAD and not to specific features available in AutoCAD 2015. All reference materials relate to AutoCAD 2015 unless stated otherwise.

Version numbering
AutoCAD has used incremental releases since the initial release of AutoCAD. Version numbering has been by the date of release in the format YYYYMMDD, where YYYY is the year, MM is the month, DD is the day of the month, so for example, AutoCAD 2016 was released on August 19, 2016, AutoCAD 2016 was released on January 18, 2016 and AutoCAD 2009 was released on January 18, 2009.


The term “AutoCAD” is an abbreviation for “Automatic Computer-Aided Design”, meaning that it was the first software program to automate drafting tasks.

Early development

The current name is an abbreviation of “Automatic Computer-Aided Design”, meaning it was the first software program to automate drafting tasks. Autocad was developed in 1972 by Arthur Lemmens, a young Dutch engineer at the National Aerospace Laboratory (NLR) of the Netherlands. At the time, architectural design was mainly being done by hand. Lemmens developed a way to work by both hand and computer, and the first version of his software, to do so, was named AutoCAD. The name AutoCAD was given to it, because it was an automatic CAD program and because it was written for engineers in the auto industry.

The first version of AutoCAD, released in January 1974, had a few basic functions, and allowed users to draw, rotate, and move objects. The first generation of Autocad had a “nosey” feature that allowed the user to trace over a shape before creating it, thus not just allowing the user to edit objects, but to manipulate them by tracing around them. The first object in AutoCAD was a rectangle, with the object properties being named with the letter R. The user could then simply type “R”, and the letter would be replaced with the value of the object properties as typed. This made it possible to, for example, create and rotate a rectangle with the “R” replaced with the value “45” and the letter “D” replaced with the value of the radius “5”. By 1986 the first commercial edition was released, and since then the product has been a growth industry.

What’s New in the?

Create a mark-up assist to easily show your team the steps required to change a part, add a line, or mark a change. Markup assist includes the capability to merge mark-ups together, and lock all markup features to ensure the integrity of your work.

Optional components to reduce complexity and merge drawings:

Simplify the creation of a static auto-generated drawing using a.pdf scan of a paper drawing.

Add a “Welcome to AutoCAD” intro to any new drawing.

Create a template and reuse, edit, and refine the template.

Create a template from a.pdf or other files.

Scribble Draw and Edit in Paint:

Engage in a richer design experience by drawing your designs in paint, and design in multiple colors, across multiple layers, and using a penscale slider.

Replace the default light gray colors with custom colors.

Tilt the pen to the left or right for extra fine control of the pen.

Reduce some of the latency in paint and note-taking by increasing the buffer delay.

Paint in new, easy-to-use brushes.

As you paint, use the context sensitivity to automatically update your drawing in real-time.

Import and export colors from Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, and from other drawing applications.

Add color to your symbols, lines, text, and blocks and fill shapes with color.

Share your designs with others in PowerPoint presentations.

Tilt your pen to the left or right for extra fine control of the pen.

The new pen behaves in ways similar to a drafting pencil.

The new pen responds to the pressure that you apply, and the stroke is always consistent with the line you drew.

Drawing nodes and their interconnections automatically, no extra steps or tricks required.

The new pen is pressure sensitive, so you can make smooth, free-hand strokes with a range of pressure.

Draw on top of a 2D map.

Design in color and effortlessly select, move, and resize objects.

Import and edit shapes in a variety of styles.

Perform dynamic layout, based on the elements you draw.

Create and maintain clean, hierarchical drawings.

Import and edit notes
