AutoCAD Serial Key is a commercial computer-aided design (CAD) and drafting software application. Developed and marketed by Autodesk, AutoCAD was first released in December 1982 as a desktop app running on microcomputers with internal graphics controllers. Before AutoCAD was introduced, most commercial CAD programs ran on mainframe computers or minicomputers, with each CAD operator (user) working at a separate graphics terminal. AutoCAD is also available as mobile and web apps. History AutoCAD is a product of Autodesk, which was established in 1982 by Charles Simonyi. Simonyi created the CAD program later on after he returned to his home country of Hungary in 1981 after working for AutoDesk in 1979. Autodesk was an established design and development company before it introduced AutoCAD, which they continue to focus on and develop today.
Autodesk first released AutoCAD on December 9, 1982 as the first drafting software application available on a microcomputer. The first version was released for MS-DOS compatible personal computers with the Intel 8086 CPU. Over time, AutoCAD grew to include many other features and continue to develop. Autodesk released their first version of AutoCAD for the IBM PC on October 1, 1983. The company released the first version of AutoCAD for the Apple Macintosh on October 18, 1983.
As of December 9, 2012, the current version is AutoCAD LT 2010.
Features AutoCAD is a desktop program that uses a 2-D wireframe model. It consists of several layers, with each layer containing its own objects. The layers are:
1. The Background or “whiteboard” layer. This layer is where the user adds all of the objects and drawings to the computer screen.
2. The Canvas layer, which is usually a transparent layer that covers the objects and drawings the user created in the Background or whiteboard layer.
3. The Layer 0 layer. This layer is automatically named “Layer 0”, which is the default layer. It is most often used to start and finish drawings. The Layer 0 layer, unlike the others, is not a true layer, but the objects and drawings the user created in the Layer 0 layer get their own distinct colors.
4. The Layer 1 layer. This layer is most often used to store the object lines and settings, which includes colors

Last month, a U.S. District Court judge in San Francisco ordered San Francisco Bay to release fish affected by the BP Deepwater Horizon oil disaster. Judge William Alsup of the Northern District of California ordered BP to fund construction of a $1.4 billion fish-passage system for the north-central part of the bay. The current fish-passage system is inadequate, and Alsup argued that it is better to build a new fish-passage system rather than further pollute the bay.
Last week, EPA signed an agreement with Shell Oil to construct a fish-passage project at a cost of approximately $27 million.
“The EPA’s immediate action on the Shell project is a great first step. The EPA’s funding should be seen as a signal to other energy companies to do their part to protect San Francisco Bay,” said Earth Justice staff attorney Bill McAllister.
BP responded by saying that they are proceeding in two directions:
“BP has been and continues to be a strong supporter of safe, responsible marine oil exploration, production and transportation,” said attorney Bruce Nilles in a press release. “BP is also pleased to work with the State of California and EPA to continue working on safe and environmentally sound oil-passage options.”
BP also announced that they intend to appeal the court order and remove the $1.4 billion price tag from the judge’s ruling.
Earth Justice staff attorney Bill McAllister said he is encouraged by EPA’s decision, but said the court order is not the only way to solve the problem.
“While an appeal will slow things down, we don’t believe it will ultimately change the outcome,” McAllister said. “And given the amount of money involved, if the court order is not appealed, the costs to repair the bay will be very high.”
Earth Justice, the National Wildlife Federation, and numerous other environmental groups have been calling for more robust fish-passage systems for San Francisco Bay since

Build and edit files in parallel. AutoCAD 2020 introduced the ability to build and edit a drawing simultaneously, opening both the drawing and a Drafts window, while keeping both windows visible at the same time. With AutoCAD 2023, you can now use the same functionality to build and edit a drawing in the same window, with both the command and drafting windows open at the same time. (video: 3:00 min.)
New Hints and Tips:
Enable and disable Hints and Tips on a per-window basis. You can now disable Hints and Tips from the Command Line (CmdLine) and the Drafts window to give you more control over the Windows experience. (video: 2:45 min.)
