AutoCAD 2020 23.1 Activation Key X64

In the late 1980s, Autodesk released AutoCAD LT, a simplified, lower cost version of AutoCAD. The free version of AutoCAD (AutoCAD LT) is available for Windows, macOS and Linux operating systems, while AutoCAD Architecture is available for Windows only. AutoCAD LT only allows for 2D (2D) drafting, while AutoCAD Architecture and AutoCAD LT Level 1 allow for 2D and 3D (3D) drafting. AutoCAD LT Level 2 offers 3D drafting.

Since 1991, AutoCAD has been an official Microsoft Registered Trademark.

The primary use of AutoCAD is to create 2D drawings and 2D architectural designs. The drafting process includes choosing, manipulating, and otherwise editing components to be used in the drawing. Once the drawing is complete, it can be printed, e-mailed, attached to a Microsoft Windows application, or saved to other formats.


AutoCAD can be used in a series of different layouts to accommodate different computer setups. The right choice depends on what you use AutoCAD for and how you plan to use it. For example, the default layout is 2x. This may be appropriate if you plan to use the computer for some non-drawing tasks. If you plan to be doing a lot of drafting, though, the default 2x layout is slower and less efficient. If you need to work with larger files or do more drawing, you might want to switch to the larger (but slower) 8x layout.

See Work Areas.

In contrast to most other CAD packages, the final position of a component is never locked until it is “flowed” from the drawing. This allows the designer to have an open editing session for components.

The selection handles around an object can be modified with grips. These grips are used in many other types of computer software. See Drawing with Grips for more information.

Select objects by clicking on them with the mouse, or using one of the selection tools (see Selection Tools below).

To move an object, use the arrow keys to move the cursor, and click the mouse to activate the object.

To rotate an object, use the arrow keys to move the cursor, and click the mouse to activate the object.

To resize an object, use the arrow keys to move the cursor, and click the mouse

AutoCAD 2020 23.1 Crack + [2022-Latest]

AutoCAD Activation Code is compatible with Microsoft Office’s ActiveX Controls and with Microsoft Visual C++ libraries. The VBA API is accessible from Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications and third party software such as PowerBuilder, Visual Basic.NET and programming languages such as C++ and Delphi. AutoCAD supports.NET as well as several Java APIs for automation using an Eclipse Java EE environment.


AutoCAD is based on the proprietary AutoLISP language, which supports the basic functions of drawing, editing and organizing parts of the drawing.

Extension of AutoCAD functionality
The AutoCAD Application Programming Interface (API) is the principal means by which AutoCAD application developers integrate AutoCAD functionality into their own applications. An API is an interface between a software application and another application. It is the programming language the developers use to access and utilize AutoCAD functionality.

The AutoCAD Application Programming Interface (API) is the primary interface AutoCAD uses to integrate other software applications with the AutoCAD product.

Extension programs
AutoCAD has a huge number of add-on products for specific purposes.

For example,
AutoCAD Architecture is software that provides architectural design in the AutoCAD product. It is produced by Autodesk Architectural Products LLC (AUP).
AutoCAD Electrical provides electrical design and representation functionality in the AutoCAD product. It is produced by AutoCAD Electrical Systems LLC (AES).
AutoCAD Civil 3D provides civil design functionality in the AutoCAD product. It is produced by Autodesk Civil 3D Systems LLC (AC3D).


The AutoCAD product is based on the technology originally developed by Bentley Systems, which spun off as Autodesk. The first version of AutoCAD was released in 1986 and used the program language. In 1989, the first Macro language was developed. In 1992, the program was ported from to the Microsoft Windows operating system. AutoCAD 2000, released in 2000, used the programming language. AutoCAD 2004, released in 2004, used the programming language. In 2006, AutoCAD LT was released for Mac and Windows. AutoCAD 2009 was released in 2009 and added function. AutoCAD 2010 was released in 2010 and added functionality. AutoCAD 2013 was released in 2013 and added function. AutoCAD 2014 was released in 2014 and added.

What’s New In AutoCAD?

Help in AutoCAD is now included in the setup and licensing process for AutoCAD Professional.

The AutoCAD Runtime Environment has gained a new “Markup Assist” function that helps you design right the first time by automatically presenting context and guidance about how to create features such as splines and spline connections. It also prompts you about essential drawing properties such as perspective and position.

The Highlight level is a new design layer in the Drawing Manager that helps you to identify boundaries in your design, including 2D wireframe, 3D boundaries, and layers, without obscuring the geometry of the underlying drawing.


The EditMe extension now has a new user-configurable column to allow you to quickly toggle visibility of the marker line between edit and construction states. (New in AutoCAD LT 2023)

Collaborate in the Cloud:

The COLLAB extension for AutoCAD now provides the option to collaborate on files directly in the cloud with Microsoft, in both read-only and edit modes.

See a list of supported cloud services in the Documentation.

The POINTIMAGE extension now provides a color-coded overlay of all the points created by the current graphic, including data points, line segments, closed linestrings, and other common types.

Using Coordinate Conversion in Windows Server 2016

The GUI for converting coordinate systems and distances to use Lat/Lon coordinates in Windows Server 2016 is now available for use in the Coordinate System dialog in AutoCAD. It has a new setting for converting all Coordinate values to use Longitude and Latitude coordinates (ALTRES_SS_CONVERSION), which allows you to be more precise with your mapping and plotting of geographic data.

Dynamic Dimensions:

You can now dynamically change the width and height of dimensioned objects.

The dimension labels for objects with dynamic dimensions, including rulers and spline handles, are no longer shown when the dimensioned object is hidden (or maximized).

You can now easily update the width and height of dimensioned objects by selecting the layout element from the Dimensioning tab of the Dynamic Dimensioning context menu.

You can now right-click a dimension line and specify the height and width of the dimensioned object.

The Offset Dims command is now available to change the dimension size.
