AutoCAD was initially designed by Gregory Gesell and David Capriotti. They originally intended to produce a DOS-based program, called XpressCAD, with a customer base of “people that like to draw stuff”. Upon realizing that DOS-based programs would not appeal to the intended target market, they decided instead to concentrate on Windows-based programs.
The first Windows-based app was released in December 1982, under the name XpressCAD. In January 1983, in order to appeal to a broader market, the name was changed to AutoCAD, as it was felt that a new word would catch on more easily.
A question in the “Software License Agreement” obtained from the supplier said: “3.4 DISCLAIMER AND LIMITED LICENSE. The software is licensed, not sold. You may not rent or lease the software. You may not transfer the software. You may not decompile, reverse engineer, or disassemble the software.” (Note: In 2012, when asked why Autodesk “sells” software rather than “licenses” it, when in fact Autodesk sells only software licenses, they replied that this was a mistake, which they had not noticed and had not changed since 1988, and that Autodesk no longer sells software.

In 1983, AutoCAD was released as a 16-bit program running on computers with 80286-based Intel CPUs and 32MB of RAM (up to 256MB was possible). The following year, Windows 3.0 was released, with AutoCAD ported to run on the new platform. When DOS version 1.1 was released, it supported AutoCAD and XpressCAD.
XpressCAD was re-released in 1994, on floppy disks, and later on CD-ROMs, as XpressCAD 2.0. This version was re-released as AutoCAD Classic in 2000. This software included support for the legacy Windows 3.1 environment, and was backward compatible with XpressCAD. In 2001, Autodesk introduced a new version of AutoCAD, known as AutoCAD 2001.
In 2002, Autodesk introduced AutoCAD 2002 for Windows, and AutoCAD 2002 for OS X
New AutoCAD release
In February 2017, Autodesk announced plans to release a new AutoCAD version in May, followed by beta testing in April. In March, 2018 Autodesk released AutoCAD 2017.
Autodesk makes AutoCAD available on multiple platforms: Windows, macOS, and Linux.
AutoCAD is licensed by Autodesk on a per-seat basis. Commercial use requires an AutoCAD subscription. The 2017 release is a perpetual license, the subscription does not include the software. Subscriptions are also available for academic institutions for those working on one project.
Autodesk provides support for AutoCAD in the form of a phone support (US, Canada, and UK) and online chat, and is also active on social media. A contact form is available at the support website. AutoCAD’s online chat is active during US business hours.
Autodesk also offers a limited number of in-depth technical support hours via telephone. These hours are recorded and maintained on a schedule, so as to maximize use.
The AutoCAD product documentation and support is offered by other companies, too. Although Autodesk maintains a separate support website, the support offered by other companies is not limited to AutoCAD.
In 2004, Autodesk released a script manager for AutoCAD.
With AutoCAD 2014, Autodesk introduced a Visual LISP scripting environment.
The Visual LISP programming environment is based on Visual LISP and extends the AutoLISP scripting environment.
In 2000, Autodesk offered an online publishing package, as well as a server and technical support to build websites. This version, known as AutoCAD Site Manager, is based on the same code as the AutoCAD itself.
The AutoCAD product includes an application extension system. This allows users to develop and deploy add-on applications. AutoCAD 360 offers a series of bundled add-on applications for specific use cases.
AutoCAD is available in multiple languages. The most commonly used versions are English, Japanese, Spanish, German, French, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Russian, and Brazilian Portuguese. The mobile versions of the product support multiple languages.

The San Francisco Giants have made themselves very clear that they are the best team in baseball. That was the case after they swept the Houston Astros in the World Series, and it’s been the case throughout the regular season, where they have run away with the National League West and are currently on pace to win 114 games. It seems like the “choking” excuse is completely out of vogue in 2018, and maybe even last year. The Giants have been America’s team for a while, and I think the public has grown tired of the constant “best team ever, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves” mantra that the front office has been preaching all season.
I know Giants fans are tired of the same thing. We’ve heard it all season, and we’re sick of it. I get it, I really do. We’re all over the board when it comes to playoff rankings, we’re all upset with the national media for giving a team like the Braves a two-game lead in the NL wild-card race, and we’re generally convinced that the only way to be good is to win a World Series. That doesn’t mean there are not legitimate criticisms of the Giants front office. They have a terrible farm system, it seems like no matter what manager they put in charge of a young team, they always make mistakes and overpay on free agents. You can point to a ton of evidence for that if you want. I don’t believe it has anything to do with choking, and more to do with the Giants being old and in decline. They
