AutoCAD 23.0 Crack+ Activation Free Download [Latest]

The original home-computing version of AutoCAD Crack Free Download (1982) was a DOS application written by Autodesk’s first programmer, Lloyd T. Copeland. After Autodesk was acquired by the software company, Corel in 1996, Corel stopped supporting AutoCAD, causing the software’s decline in popularity. As of 2016, AutoCAD is still the most popular CAD program in the world, ahead of rival programs by the likes of AutoDesk, Microstation and Aspire, and is in the top 10 most-used desktop programs.

A notable feature of AutoCAD is the “block editor”, which allows the user to draw a 2D diagrammatic object and then apply commands (called “blocks”) to it. The graphical user interface (GUI) provides means for the block selection and placement, with tools such as blocks, arcs, arrows, text, line drawings, dimensions, solids, and others. The toolbars provide access to the commands, as well as to blocks. Blocks are the building blocks of AutoCAD drawings, which can be built from these, and from groups and layers of objects.


AutoCAD started as a graphics program that would draw lines and shapes. It was released to the public in October 1982. The original name for the program was “Big Ed” (Big Easy), but was changed to AutoCAD to avoid confusion with another AutoCAD program for the Apple II called Big Easy.

Version history


AutoCAD’s capabilities have been credited with the “democratization” of computer-aided drafting and design. Before AutoCAD, such designs were the realm of commercial CAD vendors such as McNeel, M&E Systems and Parametric Technology.

According to a 2004 survey of users in major cities, AutoCAD is the most-used CAD package, and the leading software application overall, when desktops are grouped. A related 2005 survey found that AutoCAD is the “most heavily used CAD application” by 11% of the 2,000 participating offices. A third survey of AutoCAD users in 2005 found that 85% of such users had either purchased the software themselves or had already licensed the software to their employees.

In 2003, the largest-ever survey of desktop CAD applications found that AutoCAD was the most-used CAD program in use in companies with 5,000 or more employees (50% of the sample). An earlier survey found
