In August 2006, Autodesk sold its OEM automotive design business to Wards Automotive, a division of Wards Group, Inc. Autodesk retains ownership of AutoCAD. The tool set continues to evolve, with developments such as the introduction of 3D modeling and design features in 2016, but the original AutoCAD has remained virtually unchanged since its introduction in 1982. Based on the same principles of vector graphics, the design elements of AutoCAD are combined with traditional drafting and layout techniques to create a complete graphics system. More than 15 million AutoCAD users work in a variety of fields such as architecture, engineering, marketing, music, video games, and video, TV, and film production. History Development of the first version of AutoCAD started in the spring of 1978 at the MIT Lincoln Lab in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The first version was called AutoDraft, and it was designed as a desktop tool for drafting applications on microcomputers. Programmers had designed and built their own graphics software before the advent of the laser printer, and they used a variety of techniques to lay out and print graphics pages. In the 1970s, this kind of software was difficult to use. Many required designers to learn many skills to lay out a drawing, such as how to use the mouse, cut and paste, and move objects. This new drawing program had to work on many different types of microcomputers, and it had to work in as many different drawing styles as possible. AutoCAD was based on many of these earlier programs, but it was designed as an integrated set of tools. Drawing with AutoCAD was based on an idea called “coordinate capture.” In the 1970s, the laser printer allowed designers to start with a blank piece of paper and finish with a printed drawing. AutoCAD was designed to start with a large blank piece of paper and finish with a drawing ready to print. The AutoCAD team included several veterans of the laser printing industry, and they included these features in their design. One of the original goals of the program was to use vector graphics to make it easy for the user to make modifications to the drawing after it was printed. Instead of using pixels, the AutoCAD program created independent line and area objects that could be modified to create smooth, complex shapes. This same technique was used in the 1970s to develop the original laser printing industry. It used the dots created by the laser printer to

Editing a drawing or copying and pasting a command directly from a source file requires more than just simple drag-and-drop operations. Now, editing within the same context as your source file is possible through Markup Assist. Use the Markup Assistant to mark up your files. (video: 7:13 min.) You can now browse for your designs and their corresponding files (source files) in a single location. With this new feature, you can drag and drop any file to any other drawing, including CAD drawings. Find a missing file or a file that was accidentally deleted on your hard drive? The new “My File Sync” features on the Windows 10 desktop allow you to restore any deleted file to any drawing on your local machine, whether that file is on a network location or on your local hard drive. You can also browse through recent drawing files and quickly open any recently used file. If you’re running the latest version of AutoCAD and have received a new version of the same file from a designer using the RSVIPM.RST file extension, you can use the new Importer to quickly import the file. (video: 3:57 min.) Insert the point or dimension based on an object that is visible in the current view. (video: 7:03 min.) What’s new in AutoCAD 2020 Classification and Viewing in the Drafting Center: Improvements to the Drafting Center UI to facilitate classification. With a few clicks, you can now change the units of measurement used in a drawing. (video: 2:27 min.) Improved Z order controls for general purpose and specialized views. Easily toggle the visibility of a view. Click on the View Options button in the left toolbar. Toggling the visibility of a view is now quicker and more intuitive. (video: 7:18 min.) Show the scale in the Drafting Center. The new view options also includes the option to show the scale of the drawing. When you toggle this option on, the scale in the upper right-hand corner of the Drafting Center will automatically update when you change the scale of the drawing. (video: 2:27 min.) Drawing Components: With the addition of the Tab Selector, the Drafting Center has a new layout for drawing components. You can select the desired component type, and then drag and drop the component
