This guide explains how to use AutoCAD in the traditional desktop or laptop PC environment and how to work with AutoCAD on a mobile device, including smartphones, tablets, and laptop computers running Windows and Mac OS. It does not explain how to use AutoCAD on a server or in a network environment.
This guide is designed to be accessible to those with basic knowledge of using a computer. A basic understanding of how AutoCAD works is assumed, along with a desire to use the software to create professional drawings. This is not an AutoCAD beginners’ guide.
The material in this guide is intended to provide an overview of AutoCAD, including how it works and how to use it to perform many tasks. It will not give detailed information on how to use and understand the entire feature set of AutoCAD, nor on how to use AutoCAD as a complete project lifecycle solution.
AutoCAD is designed to be used as a collaborative tool, and the included software is designed to enable collaboration by providing multiple people with the ability to view, update, edit, and submit changes to the drawing at the same time.
Wherever possible, this guide uses the terms “User” and “Editor” to distinguish between those with authorization to make changes to the drawing, and those authorized to view the drawing’s display only.
This guide uses the terms “sheet” and “page” to represent the display area that can be presented to an AutoCAD User or Editor in a sheet or page format.
AutoCAD features are not included in the default installation of macOS or Windows. The manual that shipped with AutoCAD 2018 and earlier versions of the software listed those features in a Mac/Windows version-specific chapter. That chapter was replaced with a global chapter that lists and describes the more than 500 features of AutoCAD. AutoCAD 2019 added 64 features, including Book and Tablespaces.
As always, if you find problems with this guide’s content or performance, please report them to the Autodesk User Community on Autodesk.com.
Learning to use AutoCAD
AutoCAD is a powerful, complex software application that is designed to be used by a professional designer and draftsman, who must have a thorough understanding of both how it works and how to use it effectively. Although AutoCAD is an extremely powerful and sophisticated software application, the only way to learn the ins and outs of how it
The ‘Inter-Application Communication’ feature allows applications to communicate with one another. This allows apps such as the AutoCAD Map and Static Map apps to import each other’s data. Many AutoCAD apps allow exporting to other programs.
Autodesk Viewer allows viewing of AutoCAD drawings. Viewer is freeware.
The Image Processing module of AutoCAD allows for resizing, rotation, cropping, printing, and optimizing of images.
The current version of AutoCAD was originally released in 1985, and consisted of Drawing and Archiving, which is now known as 2D Drafting. The second release was in 1987, which became 3D, and was released in 1988. This version was for windows. The most recent release was in 2000, when it was renamed to AutoCAD LT, which also included a Windows version of the software.
AutoCAD has come a long way since then and has evolved into the most important CAD package for architects and engineers. AutoCAD is used for 2D, 3D and Surface Design in Architecture, Civil, and Mechanical Engineering.
AutoCAD LT (formerly AutoCAD Classic) is Autodesk’s lower-end version of AutoCAD. It uses the same graphics engine as the Professional version. It is capable of displaying parametric surfaces, surfaces, and drafting components. It uses 2D DXF as a native file format.
In September 2014, Autodesk announced AutoCAD 2016, the latest version of AutoCAD. Version 2016 was released for both Windows and Macintosh in November 2015.

Install Autodesk Autocad 2010, 2010 R2, 2011, 2013.
First, launch Autocad. Select Customize>Macros>New Customization in the main menu. In the New dialog box, in the Macro Data Type, select the function of the “one of the following codes”, and then press Ok. You will then see a list of codes on the right pane of the Customization dialog.
Use the autocad_keygen.exe tool to generate your Autodesk key. Save it to your computer or use it online.
MTS, PPM, TC, NCS, VDI, VT, and ACI are the Autocad macros that were created. Autocad has other macro functions but they are not listed here.
They are listed below for reference.
Keys available in Autocad 2D and 3D.
Autocad 2010/2010 R2:
Draw a continuous line as you navigate the drawing
The new “Dynamic Dashboard” in AutoCAD improves the way you use the drawing canvas to preview and work on drawings. The dashboard allows you to browse through CAD settings, perform various tasks such as undoing, and view the latest work.
Draw a continuous line as you navigate the drawing
When you select a drawing object with a continuous line, such as a polyline, AutoCAD draws a dotted line to show you where the line continues.
The lines you draw during design review in Revit or MindSphere are no longer drawn when you save your design. The new “Snap to Display Area” functionality in the Sketch tab now automatically places points, lines, and circles within the display area.
Switch to edit mode with “control-right-click”
A free extension to the command palette allows you to switch to editing mode in a drawing with a single click. Use control-right-click to select a 2D edit command.
The “Fit” tool is no longer in the Windows menu
Use the “Fit” tool by selecting “Fit” from the list of available tools in the Drawing or Modeling tab. The “Fit” tool is no longer available in the Windows menu.
The “Fit” tool in the Drawing and Modeling tab now offers the ability to zoom in and out while maintaining the fit
Adjust the size of the fit rectangle with the options on the Edit panel of the Fit tool
Create custom templates for the Autocad-specific Office menu
A new Extension Manager allows you to manage custom-built templates you’ve created. You can manage custom templates through the Office menu. To access the Office menu, right-click the ribbon and select “Office.”
The “Tools Options” dialog box now offers a “Help” menu for several Autodesk applications
Use the Help menu to open the AutoCAD documentation, tutorials, and videos available for the current version of AutoCAD.
Work more efficiently with labels and annotations
We’ve redesigned the labeling tool. You can create and edit labels, mark-up drawings, or annotate drawings with the new labeling tool. Use the new “Mark” tool to add your own marks or annotations
Supported Operating System
Windows 7 SP1
Windows Vista SP2

The best thing about this product is that it runs silently without any user interaction. You can run it as a standard process in the background.
It does not need to run on top of your application as it is basically a system process that monitors the network traffic with the lowest CPU and memory footprint. It only takes up 100 MB of RAM.
It is also easy to manage. There is a scheduled task that runs
