Since its inception, AutoCAD Crack For Windows has been sold primarily by the direct sale of software to customers as well as through an OEM arrangement with software application vendors such as Dassault Systemes and SAP. As of November 2015, approximately 4.7 million AutoCAD users are active. (1)
With over three decades of history, AutoCAD is a mature software application and more than 2,000 enhancements and new features have been developed. AutoCAD also offers many other design functions such as the ability to generate stereographic images, interact with a 3D design database, import and edit common CAD data formats, and create custom procedures for specific project requirements. For more information about AutoCAD’s core products and features, see the AutoCAD 2020 Overview.
