The new AutoCAD 2017 is the latest version of AutoCAD. It is the successor of the 2015 release, and is the most current AutoCAD release at the time of this article’s publication. Autodesk has also released a preview of the newest AutoCAD 2019.
Why buy AutoCAD?
AutoCAD is considered the most complete and reliable 2D drafting, design, and visualisation tool. The software is used in more than 100 industries, from architecture and engineering to manufacturing, construction, and others. A professional AutoCAD license is typically required for CAD or engineering purposes. It can be used to create 2D and 3D models, design 2D and 3D architectural and mechanical objects, and prepare technical drawings. It can also be used as a graphic designer in order to create 2D graphics and websites. The software can be used to create technical documentation, data management projects, and large architectural projects.
AutoCAD is widely used for engineering, architectural, and mechanical CAD, where AutoCAD users take advantage of extensive options and tools available in the software. The software has comprehensive features for engineering, planning, and mechanical drafting. It includes features to create and modify parametric blocks, construction details, and cross-sections. The user can create assembly drawings and mechanical drawing.
AutoCAD uses standards to define the format of all drawings, ensuring that documents created by AutoCAD users are compatible with different apps and softwares, and that the format can be re-used or converted to other formats. AutoCAD enables the user to make multiple versions of the same drawing, or to print, email, upload to websites, and analyse and generate reports from a drawing.
AutoCAD can be used by both beginners and professionals. It is an inexpensive tool that can be purchased for a single user for US$199 or for a multi-user licence for a company or organization for US$999. Autodesk also offers AutoCAD plans and offers a free 30-day trial for new users.
What can AutoCAD do?
AutoCAD users can create, modify, and edit drawings or projects.
Drawings may be 2D or 3D.
2D drawings may be architectural, mechanical, engineering, or architectural planning documents.
2D or 3D drawings may be static or dynamic, with the ability to change their size, position, rotation, and orientation
AutoCAD Crack Mac is available for Windows and macOS. In 2003, the program was ported to Linux, but there were problems with the performance and there were no updates in the software until 2011. In 2015 AutoCAD was released as an Android app that runs on Android 4.0 or later devices.
The interface in AutoCAD is very similar to that of AutoCAD LT, and is described in the main Autodesk manual as follows:
There are three main levels of menus: the Project Menu, the Drawing Menu, and the Drawing Tab Menu. The Project Menu is used to create and modify project properties and to perform more complex tasks, such as moving, copying and linking drawings. The Drawing Menu is used to manipulate the visible drawing, and provides the following controls:
Viewport Controls: Allows the drawing to be viewed in more than one viewport simultaneously, or to be resized.
Palettes: Allows the addition or removal of items to the drawing, to create, place or manipulate dimensions, etc.
Attributes: Provides an interface to edit drawing properties
Drawing Options: Allows the user to control project or AutoCAD options (e.g. apply 2D or 3D, which layers to enable)
Drawing Panel Controls: Allows the user to set the position of the drawing panel on the screen.
Dimensioning Controls: Allows the user to create, edit or delete dimensions
View Controls: Provides the ability to make drawing modifications such as copy, insert or delete
Type Controls: Allows for the manipulation of object types
Drawing Tab Controls: Allows the user to move, copy, resize, and edit objects in the drawing.
The tabs can be displayed and hidden by clicking on the tabs above the drawing area or by clicking on the tab itself. The drawing itself is stored in the active viewport, and can be changed by clicking on the drawing area. The drawing area is a rectangular region in the lower-right corner of the drawing area, and contains the active viewport. It is used to view the current drawing, and is also the location where most of the drawing controls are located.
The following features are in AutoCAD:
Drawing and annotation capabilities: Drawing lines and curves, creating rectangles, triangles, circles, lines, arcs, polygons, splines and text; annotating with text, dimensions, callouts, circles, freehand curves, straight lines,

Obesity remains a serious health problem and it is no secret that many people want to lose weight. Behavioral economists typically argue that “nudges” help individuals with various decisionmaking flaws to live longer, healthier, and better lives. In an article in the new issue of Regulation, Michael L. Marlow discusses how nudging by government differs from nudging by markets, and explains why market nudging is the more promising avenue for helping citizens to lose weight.
Two long wars, chronic deficits, the financial crisis, the costly drug war, the growth of executive power under Presidents Bush and Obama, and the revelations about NSA abuses, have given rise to a growing libertarian movement in our country – with a greater focus on individual liberty and less government power. David Boaz’s newly released The Libertarian Mind is a comprehensive guide to the history, philosophy, and growth of the libertarian movement, with incisive analyses of today’s most pressing issues and policies.
In an interview in May, Michael Powell, the Chairman of the FCC, stated his belief that the U.S. broadband internet access services market was one of the most competitive markets in the world. There’s just one problem with this assertion. That problem is the definition of “competitive.”
In the interview, Powell stated, “If you’re talking about prices, if you’re talking about cost per gigabyte of data that people are paying, that’s the most competitive market I’ve ever seen in my life, with the possible exception of some of the telco markets, where AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint are competing.” He then listed several other categories which he claimed proved his point, such as “costs of access,” “speed and data capabilities,” and “customer service.”
However, in reality, the U.S. broadband internet access market is not competitive at all. For example, according to the OECD’s Broadband Price Index, which
Support for user-defined dimensions:
Dimensional properties can be assigned to user-defined dimensions. You can save the dimensions to files and easily read them back in to your CAD model. (video: 8:59 min.)
Automatic dimension-based masking:
You can automatically create masking in your drawings by adding dimensions. An arc, polyline, or circle dimension automatically produces masking based on that dimension’s endpoint. (video: 6:25 min.)
Automatic arcs and hidden lines:
Arc tools can now be used with the intersection option to automatically create arcs and hidden lines. (video: 2:20 min.)
More ways to efficiently work with blocks:
You can use the new block reference to link a block to a user-defined dimension. You can also create blocks from blocks, or use a reference block. (video: 5:44 min.)
Easily search for blocks:
Search for blocks and groups in your drawings by using keywords or the block name. You can even select part of a drawing to search for blocks or groups in the current drawing only. (video: 6:00 min.)
Quickly add blocks to your drawing, while ensuring that they’re displayed correctly in 3D views:
Interior blocks can be hidden or enabled in the drawing options, so you can choose the best approach for your design. (video: 3:05 min.)
Annotate your designs even more efficiently and accurately:
Use the new Anchor tool and Grab points to add and edit text and draw arrows. You can also use the new Paint Brush tool to quickly annotate your drawings. (video: 5:32 min.)
Print and export:
Print more easily:
The new print and export options let you configure several important settings. For example, you can choose to preview a drawing in a new tab and change the paper size, resolution, and scaling. (video: 6:01 min.)
Send drawing documents securely and share them with others:
Share drawings with others by using the new Send Drawing command. You can also send files directly to your Dropbox account. (video: 3:52 min.)
