AutoCAD 21.0 Crack + Product Key Full Free [Mac/Win]

The software displays two-dimensional, three-dimensional and solid modeling environments and features a set of drafting tools that allow users to draw, construct, and edit geometric objects. In addition to the traditional drawing and drafting applications, the app has special features for the architectural, civil, mechanical, construction, and electrical trades.


Autodesk was founded in May 1982 by Gary Kildall, Bill Ratliff, and Paul Reckwerdt, who served as co-CEOs. Gary Kildall, the founder and first CEO of the program, spent most of the 1970s developing and commercializing the operating system and application program for the Apple II and later the IIci (a compatible IIcx, with hard drive). He was awarded the first US patent for a method of transmitting graphics data in 1983. Kildall left Autodesk in 1986 and passed away in 2013.

Autodesk’s initial product for the Apple II was a CAD/CAM package called CADDS for Apple ][, a product which was shipped in 1983. From 1983 to 1984, Autodesk developed AutoCAD for the Apple II for a price of $2,500. The initial product evolved to a three-dimensional (3D) computer-aided design (CAD) and drafting package.

By 1987, Autodesk released the original version of AutoCAD for DOS, followed by versions for the Macintosh in 1987, and Microsoft Windows in 1989. AutoCAD became the dominant CAD program for both the desktop and the architectural markets.

In 1993, Autodesk released 3D Studio for Windows, a program for designing three-dimensional objects, environments, and animations.

On July 15, 2012, Autodesk announced the acquisition of Maya, a 3D character animation software, for $674 million, adding to the products already in their portfolio.


In 1992, the average installed base of the AutoCAD product was at about 200,000 copies. In 2018, Autodesk estimated that the software had been installed on more than 63 million licenses, and that there were 200 million users.

Editing and exporting CAD files to other formats are supported through several AutoCAD features. The most advanced capabilities are supported through the program’s Distributed Engineering System (DES), which allows users to save their work in

The A360 APIs can be used for data conversion and file format conversion between CAD systems. In addition, the ACR APIs support the AutoCAD API for faster and better PDF/JPEG creation, file format conversion and other features. The conversion process is currently a one-way process, from PDF to DWG (and vice versa), but the ACR API (AutoCAD API for Quick Reporting) will allow bidirectional conversion. In the ACR API, the conversion feature can be used to dynamically construct PDF/JPG reports from DWG drawings.
AutoCAD can read and write in the AFP (advanced file protocol) standard.

Since the release of AutoCAD 2008, there have been multiple CAD vendors, including: Parasolid, BREON, Redline, Topcon’s Tekla Software, FLEXstudio, Autodesk’s SolidWorks, ANSYS, PTC’s Mirage, and Zeiss’ Creo.

In 2017, the IDC, a market-research firm, predicted that the CAD market would grow from $23.1 billion in 2016 to $27.5 billion in 2020.

Since 2016, the free version of AutoCAD is supported only on Windows 10, as of the release of AutoCAD 2019. It requires either Windows 7 or 8 (with compatibility layer) for installation.

AutoCAD claims to be the largest non-trivial open-source software project in the history of software engineering.

Other CAD applications

Autodesk Fusion 360
Autodesk Fusion 360 is a cloud-based free product that can be used to easily create 2D and 3D models. It was introduced in 2015.

Autodesk Fusion 360 is designed to make it easier and faster for anyone to create 2D and 3D models. With Fusion 360, you can create and shape your ideas into real objects with the tools you already use to edit and work with content in AutoCAD. You can assemble design elements and create 3D models using AutoCAD features, edit and manipulate them using software components, and use prebuilt visual effects to create breathtaking views and environments.

In 2018, Autodesk named Fusion 360 the “fastest growing solution” for design and manufacturing.

Category:AutoCADLONDON (Reuters) – Britain faces problems as it exits the EU, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Tuesday, as she struggled to contain a rebellion over her Brexit strategy that forced her to abandon a vote on her EU divorce deal.

“You can’t have your cake and eat it,” May said in a speech in the North East of England, repeating one of the most familiar refrains of the months of debate over the Brexit talks.

The United Kingdom is due to leave the European Union on March 29, 2019, but with no agreement about its future relations in place.

While May backed up her approach to leaving the EU, her own government has never been fully behind it. On Monday, two Cabinet ministers resigned in protest at May’s handling of Brexit.

“We face a choice,” May said in a packed hall at a former Royal Navy base on the North Sea coast of Sunderland, a northern English city with a heavy manufacturing past.

“We can embrace that choice, or we can turn away from the opportunities that are there to serve our country.”

May had been seeking to sell her deal to her party, while making clear to EU leaders and President Donald Trump in talks last week that the Withdrawal Agreement would not be reopened for a second round of talks, although talks will continue on a future relationship.

But that approach has not convinced her Eurosceptic opponents, including many members of her party, who have said they want a clean break and are not prepared to accept the status quo.

Trump described May’s approach as being the “worst deal ever” and said Britain needed to negotiate a new deal on its future ties to the United States and the EU.

May’s Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay said her new Brexit plan was the best way to ensure that Britain was not trapped in a no-deal scenario, a reference to a “hard Brexit”.
