AutoCAD is available in a number of editions. The Basic edition is free. The Standard edition is also free, and includes additional features such as the ability to create 2D and 3D drawings, and full-featured text, equation and block functionality. The entry-level Professional edition adds CAD modeling tools for 2D and 3D drawing creation and editing, basic 3D modeling tools, and a collaboration feature. The most advanced version of AutoCAD is the Enterprise edition, which is available as a subscription-based service with additional tools for AutoCAD engineering and architectural workflows.
All AutoCAD editions are compatible with all other AutoCAD software, including other AutoCAD editions and AutoCAD LT (autocad, lt).
Advantages for engineers:
Autodesk is the market leader in AutoCAD.
A number of extensive 3D application programming interfaces (API) exist for AutoCAD, allowing third-party software to be integrated into the design process.
Advantages for architects:
All AutoCAD editions support both 2D and 3D drawing creation and editing.
Most editions include a collaboration feature, allowing multiple AutoCAD users to work on the same project simultaneously.
Advantages for illustrators:
The free AutoCAD Basic edition includes several features and tools not found in AutoCAD Standard or Professional.
AutoCAD has the largest user base of any commercial CAD application.
AutoCAD supports a variety of file formats, including.dwg and.dxf, making it compatible with almost all other CAD applications.
Advantages for graphics professionals:
Because AutoCAD is compatible with other Autodesk software and hardware, AutoCAD users can leverage the full capabilities of their CAD system, including project visualization, to enhance their design workflow.
Advantages for CAD vendors:
Autodesk has been the market leader in AutoCAD for almost 30 years, and its dominance continues.
Because AutoCAD is compatible with the standard file formats of other Autodesk CAD applications, it is easier to integrate AutoCAD with third-party systems, whether they are in-house or cloud-based.
Autodesk claims that AutoCAD is the most widely used commercial CAD application in the world.
History of AutoCAD
The CAD/DGN file format is a geometric, topological, and associative data format used in the design of three-dimensional objects. Originally developed by Unisys for use in the AutoCAD Serial Key program, the format is widely used throughout the CAD industry, and is defined in the CAD standard ISA 1002.
The first version of Autodesk AutoCAD was released in 1987. The first AutoCAD R18 version was introduced in 1992 and was based on the UNIX operating system. The first AutoCAD for Windows release was AutoCAD 2000. The first version of AutoCAD for Mac OS X was AutoCAD 2008. With the introduction of the integrated drawing editor in the 2010 release, Autodesk dropped the name “AutoCAD” from the product. The official name now is Autodesk AutoCAD®.
AutoCAD is based on two file formats, dgn and dwg, a predecessor of dwg which has since been deprecated. The dgn file format consists of a list of objects that are arranged on a page. The objects can be marked with a specific attribute (e.g. Hidden or Locked) or a changeable attribute (e.g. Text). Each attribute can be applied in a region. The attribute of each object can be used to set properties such as color and transparency. An object can be a line, point, polyline, polygon, text, solid, circle, ellipse, parametric, spline curve, arc, arc segment, region, and multipolygon. The dwg file format is very similar to the dwg predecessor, but dwg objects can be linked, i.e. linked objects can be positioned as a whole. This makes it possible to change the size of an object without changing the sizes of the other objects. The dwg file format was introduced in the DWG 2000 release.
Autodesk produces a variety of software accessories, including the award-winning:
AutoCAD Web Applet, a free web applet for HTML5 browsers, supporting both mobile and desktop devices.
Autodesk also develops a range of Autodesk 360 software products, which are accessible through Autodesk 360 content and integrate with Autodesk 360 cloud services. These products include:

Open the file and put a breakpoint on the method AcKey(void).
Open QuickWatch.exe and press F5.
Watch the method parameters.
The key is a passed parameter named _tj_active_key.
The other parameters are passed to the method.
You can see them in the watch window.
This opens the QuickWatch window:
You will see the following parameters:
The method in the watch window is:
So we can open the file “Quickwatch” and decode the parameters.
Also, the names of the variables are shown:
So there is no need to keep the name of the parameters and the method names in memory.
If you look at the quickwatch method, you see that it creates a key, which is needed for the ‘Create’ method.
The parameters are used in the method:
After a key has been created, it is used for most of the operations.
To create a polyline, for example, you can use:
To set a line style:
To export a line to a DXF file:
What’s New in the AutoCAD?
Incremental and cached rendering:
Uniformly render your design in the fastest and most efficient way. Drawings are automatically cached for faster rendering the next time you draw the same scene.
Display your finished design in the AutoCAD® world. Now when you share a drawing with the built-in Showcase feature, you can take a snapshot to share with people in a file format they are familiar with. Additionally, if they are using a modern computer with a web browser, they will be able to take a look at the drawing online.
Create and edit your own user variables:
Add powerful new variable attributes to AutoCAD drawings. Create and edit multiple user variables at once, and they will appear in the same place in your drawing that you define them. You can organize and group user variables in any way you want. (video: 2:14 min.)
