AutoCAD 2018 – This version of the software features enhanced solids and fillets, dimensionality modeling, and new features.
AutoCAD LT 2018 – This version of the software does not have the AutoCAD LT 2016 features, and instead offers drafting and schematic tools in the BI-RADS project file format.
AutoCAD WS 2018 – This version of the software includes BIM features, including eDrawings, Dynamic Visualizer, and AutoCAD WS 2018 Drafting Components.
AutoCAD WS2018 – This version of the software is fully compatible with the AutoCAD WS 2017 release.
The current version of AutoCAD (AutoCAD 2018) is one of the most powerful CAD packages available today. It features advanced features like BIM (Building Information Modeling), 2D/3D Drafting, and eDrawings.
In addition, this version of AutoCAD has native cloud connectivity with Microsoft Office 365 and online collaboration.
This version of AutoCAD also features new capabilities and enhancements, such as the following:
3D Drafting and Modeling
3D geometry and surface modeling, including advanced solids and fillets.
Ability to connect and update DWG files.
Extract and format DWG models.
2D drafting features such as dimensionality modeling and improved precision in line work.
2D drafting and design tools: including ability to open and edit drawing files in a drawing.
2D drafting features such as the ability to set the view.
Creation of custom columns and tables.
Improved units and shapes.
Actions that are dependent on the status of a drawing object.
Support for working with 3D solids and surfaces.
3D reference drawings that can be used in 2D and 3D drawings.
PDF/E printing of 3D and 2D drawings.
Interactive rendering in the Dynamic Visualizer.
The latest release of AutoCAD (2018) also offers features such as eDrawings, web browsers, and online collaboration. AutoCAD eDrawings lets you share and create professional, high-quality diagrams, including annotative vector drawings
List of interoperability tools
Since May 2015, AutoCAD’s source code has been available on GitHub. AutoCAD also allows users to contribute their own patches to the source code.
Other CAD programs
Although AutoCAD is primarily targeted at engineers and architects, it is also used by many other professionals, including planners, designers, and others who use CAD software.
The software is one of the first widely used mainstream CAD (computer-aided design) software to provide native file format support for the DWG (dynamic web graphics) format, which was developed by the Architectural Desktop company.
AutoCAD Architecture provides features such as BIM (building information modeling) support and 3D CAD, in addition to its AutoCAD functionality.
Some recent CAD vendors (including MicroStation, CorelDraw, and CATIA), have the ability to read/write DWG files, so AutoCAD or DWG files can be transferred between them, and there are also converters which can read DWG files in any CAD program.
AutoCAD LT is limited to use on home/office or personal use and is not intended for use in a professional context. AutoCAD is not available for lease.
AutoCAD is not available for workgroup installations or on Unix.
AutoCAD for AEC has a perpetual license, and is available for use in a commercial or professional setting. AutoCAD for AEC will be available in a new subscription model starting in 2019, with a dual-license model for the subscription and perpetual license.
AutoCAD R14 includes additional functionality beyond AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT, such as a flooring tool for detailed building design.
, AutoCAD is only available for Windows; Macintosh and Linux users must use AutoCAD LT. AutoCAD LT is also only available for Windows.

AutoCAD Crack With License Key
Select “Advanced” under the File menu and click the “Open Registry Entries…” button.
Add a registry key pointing to the free autocad-for-windows.exe file in the autocad folder of your Autodesk installation. It should look something like the following:
Note: Instead of using the full path, you can use a subfolder to save on space.
Press OK and restart the program.
Please share with us the results.
Using VBA in Excel, with the following script, I was able to load and activate AutoCAD on my Windows 7 32 bit machine with no problem.
‘Requires a 32bit instance of Autodesk AutoCAD to be installed
‘Performs the following:
‘1. Opens a dialog box for the user to specify a path to autocad.exe
‘2. Checks that autocad is installed
‘3. If Autocad is installed, starts it
‘4. Opens a dialog box asking if Autocad is to be activated
‘5. Checks to see if Autocad is already activated
‘6. If it’s not activated, Activates it
‘7. Exits the sub
Const CACADDIEMTEMPLATE As String = “C:\Program Files (x86)\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2010” ‘change this path to match the location of your Autocad installation
Dim AutoCAD As Double
AutoCAD = GetDlgItem(CADDLG_PATH)
‘The below function will display the supplied path dialog box
‘If the user clicks cancel, it returns nothing. The returned value is assigned to AutoCAD
If GetActiveWindow.Caption “About Autodesk AutoCAD” Then
GetDlgItem(CADDLG_PATH).List = GetDefaultDlgItem(CADDLG_PATH)
GetDlgItem(CADDLG_PATH).Edit = GetDefault
What’s New in the?
Whether you’re sharing your work in a report, proposal, or design review, you can send feedback from Acrobat to AutoCAD directly, even from a mobile device. Drawing printouts are no longer required.
You can specify what files to send, so you don’t waste time sending any file that’s not needed.
A speedier way to incorporate other types of feedback: you can import and insert tagged comments.
You can now turn existing comments on or off. You can assign colors and sizes to tags.
You can also create a set of predefined tags that you can apply to your drawing at any time.
A new way to communicate: you can easily create and share comments using the new X-ray Comment feature, which lets you write comments that pop out of your drawing, and keep your drawing clean.
Use the new 2D Chat feature to quickly communicate with other users of the system, without leaving your drawing.
The new Media Browser opens files directly from websites, from within AutoCAD. You can also send files directly from the Media Browser to your drawing. You can even upload to the cloud, so you can work from any device and share files with anyone, anywhere.
Also new in 2023: AutoCAD Cloud
Streamline your projects by using the cloud to store your drawings in the cloud. With the new Quick Start option, you can use the AutoCAD Cloud to access cloud-stored drawings and files directly from your drawing. And with custom settings, you can configure your drawing to sync with your cloud storage.
Add color-coded layers and materials to drawings.
Instant PDF with Media Browser integration. You can create PDFs from drawings that are stored in the cloud. (You can also store files on the cloud directly. To learn more, see the Getting Started With the AutoCAD Cloud article.)
New Quick Start options.
You can also import files stored in the cloud into your drawing. (You can also import files stored on your computer into your drawing.)
Import files from cloud storage.
New Cloud-to-cloud support.
A new Export to PDF function.
Create PDFs from drawings that are stored in the cloud.
