AutoCAD 23.1 Crack+ [Mac/Win]
Autodesk’s AutoCAD software evolved from an earlier graphics system, originally called DGN, which began development in the early 1970s. The system was released in 1971 for internal use at Autodesk. The name AutoCAD was chosen in 1980 because “it was the year the computer was introduced into our workplace; at the time, the operator was called the AutoCAD operator. That alludes to the fact that now we are going to change our role.” The AutoCAD Operator was the first person who used the CAD software, and the “first rough draft” of the design could be traced directly back to their work. The early users of AutoCAD were not engineers, but artists or draftsmen who needed to plan, draft and edit drawings of buildings and other architectural projects.
In the early days of AutoCAD, the computer had to be connected directly to a picture tube screen and a bitmap-based graphics engine, which was far slower than vector-based graphics. For some time, AutoCAD users could not use the application to draw anything more complex than a single straight line; the graphics hardware could not keep up. There was even a delay of hours or even days between the original drawing, and a “correct” rendering of it. AutoCAD’s start as a 2D drafting program also meant that the program was not able to be used to design and manufacture parts in 3D (except for simple geometric shapes).
Acquisition of software rights
The owner of the trademark name for AutoCAD, AutoDesk, Inc., had a long history of licensing AutoCAD to various companies. In 1985, Autodesk was acquired by AutoDesk, Inc. The company has continued to sell the AutoCAD software, and the trademark remains with Autodesk, Inc. However, after Autodesk acquired the trademark, a new version of AutoCAD was released, called AutoCAD LT, which was a scaled-down version of the original software to fit the limitations of an 8-bit microprocessor. This version of AutoCAD LT used a vector-based graphics engine with the ability to quickly draw complex designs.
With the acquisition of Autodesk, the AutoCAD source code was also made available to other software developers. Eventually Autodesk released the AutoCAD source code for non-commercial use under the General Public License.
AutoCAD 23.1 Crack+ Incl Product Key Free PC/Windows
AutoCAD 2D for Windows is a version of AutoCAD that runs on Windows. AutoCAD 2D was based on the previous Architectural Productivity System (APS), which was based on the MacIntosh. AutoCAD 2D shares many concepts with the AppleWorks suite of products, and the name may have derived from the latter. The 2D software was originally developed by 3D Total Environment. The 2D software was, in turn, replaced by AutoCAD 2D on macOS starting with AutoCAD 2016. AutoCAD 2D is the only version of AutoCAD available for Microsoft Windows, and it is also used in AutoCAD 360, AutoCAD AppMan and the AutoCAD Mobile Apps for iOS and Android.
AutoCAD for Android
AutoCAD on Android was developed by Autodesk as part of a license agreement with Google to market AutoCAD. The agreement required that Autodesk continue to develop AutoCAD. Autodesk developed the Android version of AutoCAD at the same time as it developed the iOS version of AutoCAD.
In 2013, Autodesk reported that more than 300,000 licenses had been sold, and that 90,000 users had downloaded the Android AutoCAD app, which is the only Android AutoCAD app on the Google Play Store.
The features offered are the same as AutoCAD in the desktop versions. The design time is one of the main features of the Android AutoCAD application. It has four tools: the pencil, ruler, rectangular and line snapping. These tools can be used during design or sketching. It also has snap options, grids, layouts and multiple selection.
AutoCAD 360 is an app for iOS and Android devices, which enables real-time collaboration between AutoCAD users. AutoCAD 360 allows users to view and annotate any layer of any drawing on screen. A particular feature of AutoCAD 360 is its “smart” layers, which respond to changes made to the model by either deleting, moving, or duplicating layers. This feature allows the user to show and hide only the layers that are needed.
AutoCAD 360 Mac
AutoCAD 360 Mac is a version of AutoCAD 360 for macOS.
AutoCAD AppMan is an app for macOS, which is based on the Autodesk Exchange Apps.

What’s New in the AutoCAD?
Use the new Markup Assist feature in AutoCAD 2023 to quickly complete the rest of your drawing. The new Markup Assistant feature was designed to be a quick, intuitive way to create new drawing elements. You can use it to add lines, text, and arcs as you type. Plus, you can build a markup sheet that is stored in the drawing. (video: 1:16 min.)
The new Markup Sheet lets you quickly set up a new drawing or edit an existing drawing with a subset of all the drawing commands.
Importing a drawing:
The new Link Import feature allows you to connect to and import a DWG or DXF file that is stored on your computer or the cloud. You can specify the connection information, then choose to link to the file or a folder that contains the files. (video: 1:02 min.)
In AutoCAD 2023, you have a lot more ways to customize and personalize your workspaces. You can now:
Customize the style of your workspace
personalize your layout with different workspace layouts

By default, panels from the DesignCenter are now grouped and rearranged according to their preferences and last appearance.
You can also now customize the look and feel of the ribbon:
Drag and drop style icons to customize the default ribbon
Choose the color of the ribbon background
Choose your preferred color for all buttons
Change how the menu looks
New shapes and connectors:
The new set of tools and commands in AutoCAD 2023 allow you to quickly and easily create and annotate vector shapes and lines. You can:
create simple shapes with the Drawpoint tool
create complex shapes with the Drawpolygon and Drawpolyline tools
use the Snap to selection feature to create or modify objects
use Shapebuilder to create objects from blocks
use the Lettering tool to add text to shapes
use the Arc tool to create circular and elliptical shapes
