Press ‘Start’ to automatically generate the license file with the license key.
Enter the keygen’s serial key and press ‘Generate’.
Select the type of license, (print, network or the lifetime)
The key is automatically generated.
Getting started with AutoCAD
After the license file has been generated you will have to download and install Autodesk Autocad. For this you need an internet connection and your Autocad Account. If you have never created a Autocad account and want to do so then follow the Autocad setup process:
Once you have installed Autocad follow the Installation guide from the Help menu.
The license file is in a ZIP file. It contains the Autodesk account information and the license key. When you start the installation process the license file is automatically extracted to your Autocad installation folder and the license key is added to the KeyGen folder.
To retrieve the license file follow these steps:
1. Download the Autocad license file and unzip it.
2. Double-click on the Autocad license file to open it.
3. Enter the serial key, type an email address and press ‘OK’.
4. The license file is automatically added to your Autocad installation folder. The key is automatically added to the KeyGen folder.
5. To test that the license is valid, go to Settings | Options and double-click on License Status, select Network or Network and press Ok. If there is no permission error you have the right license file.
– A license file is valid for three years from the date that the license was activated.
– If you activate it more than three years after your first use you need to download the license file again.
– If you activate it more than three years after the last activation of your license file you need to download the license file again.
When you start the license key generator you will see the serial key of your Autocad account. Enter this key into the license key generator and press ‘Generate’. The key will be automatically added to your KeyGen folder.
To test that the key is valid:
1. Go to Settings | Options and double
AutoCAD’s new Markup import and Markup Assist tools makes it easy to communicate ideas and get feedback from anyone. Open a PDF, and draw new marks in your drawing to show what’s being discussed. The marks will automatically update your drawing. When you’re done, export your updated drawing as a PDF to share with colleagues. (video: 1:30 min.)
Measure on arc and arc segments. Draw a second arc on top of the first arc and then draw a straight line, like a shadow, that follows the second arc to create a second arc. (video: 1:30 min.)
Smart-guidance on arc and arc segments. Create a second arc by using the most efficient path on the arc. Arc and arc segments may be aligned with existing objects to create an alignment. (video: 1:30 min.)
The latest release of AutoCAD introduces a set of enhancements to Sketch, Curve, Object snap, 3D, and Text functions. New feature highlights include:
Smart Edge Creation:
Calculate and align edge edges in multiple directions. Using edge snaps, you can align multiple edge edges and center their alignment. The edge snaps are based on the intersecting vectors between the edges. (video: 1:30 min.)
You can now align edges from two different drawings. The results are used to calculate a third edge. This automatic edge alignment is good for comparison and updating, but it’s much faster and more precise than the older method. (video: 1:30 min.)
The AutoCAD Tips app is always with you to save time on daily projects. Help is at your fingertips with these new AutoCAD tricks. (video: 1:30 min.)
AutoCAD’s New Edge Creation Algorithm:
Simplify and align multiple edge edge vertices automatically. Edge snaps align and calculate edge vertices based on the angle between the edges. The edge snap features are available in multiple orientations and in multiple views. (video: 1:45 min.)
Create exact curves with fewer vertices. AutoCAD simplifies your edge edge and corner edge editing. Convex hulls are now a snap to edit in AutoCAD. (video: 1:45 min.)
