AutoCAD is available for Windows, Linux, and macOS (Mac OS X). AutoCAD for Windows is compatible with Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7, 8, and 10. AutoCAD for Linux is compatible with Linux (Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Debian, Ubuntu, etc.) and Apple macOS. AutoCAD for macOS (Mac OS X) is compatible with Mac OS X 10.6 or later. AutoCAD for Windows and AutoCAD for Linux are available for the cloud, allowing users to work remotely from a web browser or mobile device. AutoCAD for Mac and AutoCAD for iOS are both available in the cloud. AutoCAD LT is available for Windows, Linux, and macOS (Mac OS X) for use by students and enthusiasts. AutoCAD LT is less expensive than full-blown AutoCAD, but it does not offer some of the advanced features of the full-blown version.
We provide a complete tutorial on AutoCAD 2017. Below we also provide a great online tutorial by DLABS that will teach you how to create 2D and 3D drawings in AutoCAD 2017 and edit DWG files.
Unlike most CAD programs, AutoCAD is not a single program. It is a software suite comprising AutoCAD Civil 3D, AutoCAD Mechanical, AutoCAD Electrical, and AutoCAD Electrical Classic. These four programs are available as individual programs, or in a combined bundle (AutoCAD Civil 3D + AutoCAD Mechanical + AutoCAD Electrical).
What is AutoCAD 2017?
The newest version of AutoCAD is AutoCAD 2017. The AutoCAD 2017 program includes many of the features that were introduced in previous versions of AutoCAD, such as DWG format compatibility, but the user interface and other factors have changed. What follows is a list of all of the significant changes that you will see when you use AutoCAD 2017.
The most obvious change in AutoCAD 2017 is the user interface. The on-screen toolbar is larger and has more buttons on it.
The on-screen toolbar has four main areas.
Drawing area with a black grid and white text, where you will be creating drawings
Command area with a red background and blue text, where you will find most of the basic drawing commands
Dimensions area with a blue background and black text,
Source code of AutoCAD is available to the public under the GNU General Public License.
Prior to 2010, AutoCAD was available in two different software bundles: AutoCAD LT and AutoCAD Premier. These were initially for Windows only. AutoCAD was one of the first applications to support the new (then) standard of Open Design Alliance’s Open XML format; it is now one of the most popular applications for this format.
The source code is available to the public under the GNU General Public License (GPL).
The following table lists the features that are common to all editions of AutoCAD.
All AutoCAD versions can display and create working drawings (as well as sheets, viewports, slide-up windows, and templates). An optional feature, the 3D workspace, allows for working with 3D models. It also allows for creating and manipulating 3D solid objects and surfaces (also known as 3D solids), and allowing them to be viewed from various perspectives.
A detailed drawing history can be displayed and managed, and undo can be applied to actions to restore a drawing state.
Features specific to the Windows editions include floating and tiled windows, which enable the user to arrange the workspace in any way. Mac editions lack floating and tiled windows, but instead offer scrollable panes. The user can also set a custom theme.
User interface and tools
The interface is based on a three pane layout. There are tools on the top left, command line options on the top right, and the drawing canvas on the bottom. The menu bar along the top of the screen is used to access more tools or edit the drawing. When using the command line or the drawing canvas, the user’s mouse pointer is represented by a small, horizontal line.
The interface is customizable. The system, referred to as the “Customize Palette”, can be used to create different custom toolbars and palettes for the user to select from. This customization can be done by the user in the Customize Palette menu or through the Customize Palette add-in.
AutoCAD has its own and advanced Ribbon user interface. This allows the user to hide or show a number of features on the Ribbon, for example, switching between all the drawing modes of the application. In addition, users can also define custom button groups or even application shortcuts. All these can be configured under the Customize
Select file Autocad.exe, right-click it and choose Extract here.
Extract the file to the directory of your choice.
Run Autocad and open the file acedit.
AutoCAD file format
The program creates three files
Program file – acad.exe
Editor file – acedit.exe
Database file – aname.ddf.
The program is started from the Program file. The editor file and the database file are created and located in the same directory as the Program file. Aname.ddf is created in the same directory of acad.exe. The database file is intended to create (update) existing entities (cad models) if the editor file acedit.exe is opened. The aname.ddf is a file named entity (model) in Autocad. The DDF is a database file that stores the entity information, the name and the properties of the entities in Autocad, and also all the file links, scripts, etc.
Autocad File Format
The database file aname.ddf and acad.exe are in the same directory.
The acad.exe contains the function information of Autocad, and the aname.ddf contains all the entities information, including the model properties and the entities on the model.
Autocad is not a CAD program. It is a model-based engineering design software, with the file extension.dwg, among others.

AutoCAD’s Custom Menu allows you to access almost any AutoCAD command quickly. You can search for commands using the Find dialog box and access the results in the Custom Menu.
You can customize your Custom Menu to include the commands you use most often and ignore the rest. You can also add your own commands to the Custom Menu to run in AutoCAD.
The Custom Menu is open in the Run Dialog box. To open the Run Dialog box, click the right arrow (») icon.
The Commands category is separated into Commands, Main Menu Commands and Utility Commands. The Commands category is separated into Categories and Commands.
