Autodesk also offers a free version of AutoCAD, AutoCAD LT, that lacks some features.
This overview focuses on AutoCAD, but Autodesk states that the principles of AutoCAD apply to all of its products. See also: About AutoCAD LT
What’s in AutoCAD and other Autodesk products?
Autodesk released AutoCAD for the first time as a 2-D program that was restricted to the desktop. The program was an immediate success. Within a few years, AutoCAD was the most popular 3-D program in the world.
A year after AutoCAD’s release, Autodesk released AutoCAD LT, a 2-D version of the software. For the first time, the program was available on minicomputers with no graphics capability. (AutoCAD LT never gained wide popularity; the program was discontinued in 1998.)
During the early years, AutoCAD was sold in a variety of ways. The basic version was sold for about $300. However, at the time, the company’s wares were not cheap. As a result, Autodesk began selling add-ons.
Over the years, Autodesk has offered a host of add-ons that further enhance the functionality of AutoCAD. To help it compete against other CAD programs, Autodesk provided product and service updates. To make more money, Autodesk offered subscription add-ons for annual or monthly fees.
Today, Autodesk offers a variety of add-ons, including license upgrades, plug-ins, data sets, and training.
In 2017, Autodesk introduced the AutoCAD 360 cloud app, which allows users to access the desktop version of AutoCAD from smartphones, tablets, and other web-connected devices. The app also provides users with the ability to make revisions to a drawing created on a desktop computer.
AutoCAD and related products
AutoCAD currently comes in four editions. The regular (pricing is for individual users) version is priced from about $1,500 to $5,000, depending on the features. The Architect and Architecture versions are priced from about $2,000 to $6,000, depending on the features. The Construction version is priced from about $10,000 to $20,000,
In 2016, the software’s first Autodesk Digital Design (DDS) Format was released. This format is designed to open and work with Revit objects.
Support for Microsoft Windows
In 1994, the software was renamed Autodesk DWG. DWG stands for “Drawing”, a term which may be ambiguous in this context. Since version 2.0, Autodesk DWG supports an extended set of AutoCAD drawing features. In 2009 Autodesk introduced AutoCAD Civil 3D, which allows architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) professionals to create 3D models in the same space as their 2D drawings. Civil 3D and AutoCAD DWG are sold separately. AutoCAD Map 3D, announced at the 2010 Autodesk Show, adds 3D modelling tools to Civil 3D. AutoCAD Map 3D is sold separately. AutoCAD Map 3D, announced at the 2012 Autodesk Show, adds a collection of tools for land planning and road design.
Autodesk DWG can read and write a wide variety of file types, including: AutoCAD, DXF, DWG, DWF, OFX, FBX, PDF, PS, EMF, IFF, HPGL, AI, XPS, PBF, PRC, SVG, and VRML.
The software was named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World’s Most Sustainable Companies 2012 list.
AutoCAD LT (long running tools) is Autodesk’s lower-end 2D CAD software for schools and small businesses. It supports creation of 2D drawings and 2D drawing components, such as profiles, views and layers, but lacks the functionality of the other AutoCAD products. It includes a set of tools similar to those of the 2D drafting feature of other AutoCAD products. The software is a freeware, and is available both as a downloadable product and as an online streaming product. AutoCAD LT has a subscription-based free-to-use term allowing the student to use the software as long as they meet certain criteria, or as a perpetual term. Its successor, AutoCAD LT 2020, was announced on 16 September 2017. The successor, like the original AutoCAD LT, is free to use, and is fully interoperable with the original AutoCAD LT.
AutoCAD LT has been criticized as being difficult to learn,

A church sign that reads “Jesus died for your sins” has been defaced in Florida, with “TRUMP 2016” written in its place.
The letters “TRUMP” are seen on the bright red and green sign, which is located outside a church in Sarasota, Florida.
The church, Bayshore Assembly of God, posted a video of the sign on its Facebook page on Thursday.
“We aren’t sure who did it or why, but the worst part is that they took the time to write ‘Trump 2016’ over the Jesus Sign,” the post says. “With everything going on in our country, our way of life and our world, we can’t even be happy that this sign was covered up.”
TRUMP PICK FOR COURT OF APPEALS SAYS MELANIA TRUMP’S IMMIGRATION RULE IS ‘SCHOOLMATES, STRANGERS AND RACISTS’
Bayshore Assembly of God Pastor Craig Carpenter told The Sun-Sentinel that the vandalism did not hurt the sign’s structural integrity.
“I think that’s despicable,” he said. “Just like our national political discourse, sometimes you have people who don’t like what’s being said and they try to silence the message.”
“It’s unfortunate what’s happening in our world,” he added. “It’s
