AutoCAD 24.2 Crack

AutoCAD 24.2 Crack








AutoCAD [Mac/Win] [Updated-2022]

AutoCAD uses block-based drafting techniques. The drawing canvas contains geometric shapes (blocks), which are composed in various ways to form shapes and surfaces. The entire drawing process is performed using commands that are written into "blocks" (text windows) in which the user types the commands.

AutoCAD has three types of drawing (or model) files: DWG, DXF and SVG. A DWG drawing is a conventional sheet of paper containing vector, or geometric, objects, which can be manipulated by editing the drawing text. It can also be opened in other programs for post-production editing. The DXF file is a conventional paper drawing in which all objects are in raster form. The SVG file is an acronym for Scalable Vector Graphics, an XML-based vector file format.

AutoCAD supports numerous types of drawing objects. These objects include:

Objects can also be used to display content on a surface. For example, you can add a text box on the surface of a block (the method AutoCAD calls "graphics") or add a shadow (the method AutoCAD calls "hatching").

Other AutoCAD functions include:

• The ability to create, edit and manipulate shape and surface objects

• Dynamic updating of the drawing canvas as the model is manipulated

• The ability to create compound geometric shapes called spline objects, or curves. Spline objects have predefined shapes called knots. They can be manipulated using curves tools to create an infinite number of shapes.

• The ability to generate freehand or freeform drawing without being tied to the traditional axes.

Types of objects

AutoCAD supports two types of objects. The first is the solid, or geometric, object. The second is the surface, or graphical, object. A solid object may or may not have a surface.


Geometric objects are geometric shapes that you create in a drawing. You define a geometric object by defining its boundaries.

An object's extent is the volume of space that the object can occupy.


A shape is a geometric shape created by drawing boundaries. Examples of shapes are rectangles, circles, lines, and triangles.

A shape is usually defined by four points of reference, which determine its boundaries.


Available tools

* Form templates for: drafting, drafting, Bill of Materials, drawing construction using form templates, 3D modeling and rendering, building data to drive visualization, Autodesk Exchange Apps are available for use in AutoCAD
Collaboration: AutoCAD Architecture, AutoCAD Electrical, AutoCAD: Civil 3D are the first editions of AutoCAD to include a graphical user interface, which supports document file storage, collaborative editing, and sharing (or viewing) by multiple users (or clients). Its 2.6, 2.7, and 2.8 are released under the cross-platform AcrobatReader license.
Bill of Materials : for creating structures based on drawings.

AutoCAD LT and AutoCAD Classic are available only as command line applications.

AutoCAD LT (and later) does not have its own user interface.

Other products

AutoCAD Map3D is a stand-alone mapping and land surveying tool. It has also been integrated into AutoCAD but remains a separate product.

In June 2005, Autodesk released AutoCAD 2008, a combined AutoCAD LT and AutoCAD package. The former product was discontinued in 2011, along with the majority of other AutoCAD and related products. AutoCAD 2013 was released in 2013 and was discontinued in 2018, as well as previous releases. In 2019 Autodesk released AutoCAD 2020 which is a completely new revision of AutoCAD.

In the PC version, AutoCAD stores its drawings in its native format, DXF, which is basically ASCII text. However, it can read and write a number of other file types, including PLY and STEP.

AutoCAD is cross-platform and runs on the Windows, Linux and Mac OS X platforms. It can be installed to, or run from, removable media, such as a CD-ROM or USB flash drive. AutoCAD can also be run from a network server. The 'drawing' view is Windows-based, whereas the 'edit' view is either OS X- or Linux-based depending on the platform.

On Windows, AutoCAD can be accessed by double-clicking on the AutoCAD icon on the desktop, or by running the program from a drive letter. The program can also be started via a command line. In this case, the program will accept options through a command-line window.

What's New In?

Get maximum fidelity from your AutoCAD drawings by generating and rendering features automatically. Automatically generate points, lines, curves, fillets, intersections, and tangent lines from simple 2D wireframes. Add features to render 3D or 2D drawings with crisp, high-quality output. (video: 1:36 min.)

Redesign the way you work with parametric models. Start designing more intuitively using existing AutoCAD parametric commands. Drop parametric models into your drawings with AutoCAD’s new parametric modeler. Automatically update your models as you go. (video: 2:13 min.)

Model and draw in 3D. Quickly convert paper designs into 3D models and drawings. Your initial idea may be just a 2D model, but bring it to life as a 3D object in Autodesk 3ds Max. (video: 2:55 min.)

Place, rotate, and scale 2D images, including photos, drawings, and line art. Use the Image Insert command to import 2D images as a 3D object. (video: 2:35 min.)

3D print using a standardized design for straight and smooth lines. Automatically plan and print simple straight and curved lines using a single set of dimensions to produce 3D models or drawings. (video: 2:12 min.)

Get your models created faster with the new Automatic Drafting Assistant. Spend less time generating and editing drawings. Receive a three-step response to your creation requests. Change your mind? Just undo! (video: 1:50 min.)

Enhance and refine your designs with the new Symbols and Markup command. Easily align and attach symbols and text to shapes, lines, and areas. Add comments with notes and fillet paths, and style your symbols with brushes. (video: 1:59 min.)

Save time and increase productivity with a faster, more efficient way to place symbols and text. Place symbols and text with the new Symbol Assistant that provides a feedback-rich response when placing symbols and text objects. (video: 1:30 min.)

Receive more timely responses from other users when you comment on drawings. Comments are displayed at the same time as you type them. Your comments and responses are broadcast to other users who can also review your comments as they type. (video: 1:25 min.)

Use Windows 10 to edit drawings directly from Microsoft Office, cloud

System Requirements For AutoCAD:

OS: Windows Vista / Windows 7 / Windows 8 / Windows 8.1
