AutoCAD Torrent (Activation Code) Free Download [March-2022]

As of February 2020, the latest version of AutoCAD is 2019 (v19). In September 2019 Autodesk announced the release of AutoCAD 2021, the next generation of AutoCAD for the 2020 edition of the ARES Report on Architecture and Engineering Software.

AutoCAD is often bundled with other Autodesk apps and products. At the time of writing, Autodesk has a free perpetual license for all AutoCAD users.

As AutoCAD is used by architects, engineers and drafters in the construction industry, information technology, product design, manufacturing and manufacturing support, it is considered one of the most widely used desktop CAD applications.

What is AutoCAD?

AutoCAD is a commercial software suite for the creation, modification, viewing, and documentation of 2D and 3D models.

AutoCAD is a desktop CAD program for Windows-based personal computers. Although the first version of AutoCAD was a desktop application, users can now also download it as a web application.

AutoCAD is available in a desktop edition (AutoCAD, AutoCAD LT) and a web-based edition (AutoCAD LT Web). The desktop version can also be used as a mobile app (AutoCAD Mobile App for iOS and Android).

Since AutoCAD LT only runs on PCs with a certain minimum hardware configuration, AutoCAD LT Web can run on any web-enabled device. In addition, it is free for use.

One of AutoCAD’s unique features is its ability to work from a network folder. To connect to a network folder, you need a folder with the name “Server Name”. This folder could be on any PC within the network. AutoCAD needs to connect to the computer on which the folder is located.

Autodesk’s CAD software suite has been available in different formats for a long time.

In the beginning

Despite today’s enormous software market, the first CAD software for personal computers was Autocad. It was introduced in 1982. Before AutoCAD, most CAD programs ran on mainframe computers or minicomputers, with each CAD

File formats

AutoCAD 2022 Crack is able to read and write other CAD file formats, such as DWG, DXF and STEP. In addition, AutoCAD is able to read and write object data files and extended data files.


AutoCAD is able to save and restore a project by serializing the project state. AutoLISP, VBA, Visual LISP, and C# as well as certain data types, can also be serialized. In addition, the format of all data can be saved and restored.

Drawing navigation

The AutoCAD drawing environment is defined by a drawing space hierarchy. This hierarchy contains objects such as solids, surfaces, and parts which can be placed into a drawing. An example of the drawing space hierarchy is shown below.

Objects and tools are added and moved to the drawing space and are also called ‘named’ as they are named during the drawing process. Moving objects to different parts of the drawing space causes the object to be named differently. An example of a drawing space hierarchy with named objects and tools is shown below.

An object can have multiple instances, e.g., multiple columns on a table. Instances can be named independently, so you might have a table with columns ‘A’ and ‘B’. To move an instance, AutoCAD would move a single instance of the object and keep the instance name for the object that was moved. Moving the object would cause the name for the object to change to the instance name.

Placing objects into the drawing space can be time consuming, so to speed up the process, AutoCAD has shortcuts available which allow objects to be placed almost as fast as typing them in the drawing space. These shortcuts are called on the fly. On the fly shortcuts are available for a number of different tools such as e.g. objects, named objects, dimension names, datum points, datum reference, drawings, text, entities, and other actions.

On the fly shortcuts are also available for tools such as dimension, text and entities. For example, one could place an entity into the drawing space by typing ‘e’ for entity.

Lines and objects can be placed by using the keyboard (and the mouse) only. An example is shown in the following image:

Another example is shown in the following image:

**Collapse All**

The Collapse All button (Figure 6-21) shows all the panels in the drawing, regardless of their current state. You can then select the panels you want to work on by clicking them.

What’s New in the AutoCAD?

Open a new PDF document from the Command-line by using AutoCAD without installing a viewer program.

Linting and more:

A comprehensive maintenance mode to help prevent unexpected errors while working in AutoCAD.

A new Lint tool checks the syntax of commands used in drawings and helps the user spot mistakes. You can now also use the Lint tool in Advanced functions by choosing Tools | Lint | Check Syntax.

Nested collections of block types are now supported. Use Collection Panel » Block Types to create collections of various block types (e.g., ACAD_NODES and ACAD_CIRCLES).

The Shadow option for Block Styles now provides a visual indication of the shadow effect when using fill or line styles.

A new setting called Auto-Hide Title (Preferences | Files | General | Display) lets you hide the title bar of AutoCAD on all but the first drawing page.

Dockable toolbars:

Dockable toolbars now show in the bottom-right corner of your screen. You can toggle between them and open more quickly.

You can hide and display toolbars and palettes by right-clicking a toolbar or palette item and choosing either Show or Hide.

You can now share a drawing via one of your email accounts.

Prevented drawing out of scale:

When your drawing scale is changed, you can now choose between the old scale and the new scale to apply to all parts of your drawing. This makes it easy to combine two drawings with different scales (e.g., a smaller drawing within a larger drawing).

Lighten and darken your drawings (including the command line):

You can now use the Darken and Lighten commands to darken or lighten a section of your drawing. You can also specify a percentage of the entire drawing to darken or lighten.

You can now specify the color intensity for the Lighten command. Use the slider to adjust the amount of light or darkening. (Currently, this feature is available only when you select a color in the Fill and Stroke palette. A feature is being developed to provide access to this functionality when selecting an object that has a fill color.)

You can now use the Lighten and Darken commands to lighten or darken the settings in the Insert Tab or Insert dialog box.
