AutoCAD was created by William H. (Bill) Silver and his colleague Norman F. G. (Nigel) Simkin. The two had previously worked together at Victor Technology Products, which was later acquired by Autodesk. They left in 1977 to set up their own consulting firm, Silver/Simkin Associates, and sold their first AutoCAD system in early 1978. The initial client base consisted of small businesses with modest requirements, and the software sold for $10,000. As they gained a reputation for doing good work, more clients came to them, and by 1980 they had offices in northern Virginia, and Miami. In the early 1980s, Autodesk began selling some of their products (notably, Inventor) directly to small businesses, instead of through consulting firms, and by 1983 they were the largest direct CAD seller in the world.
Autodesk, Inc. and AutoCAD
Autodesk, Inc. is a manufacturer of design software, digital media, and data visualization tools. It was founded by Bill Silver, Alan Cross, Dr. Myron Boomershine, and Rick Hemrick in May of 1982 as a merger of several successful software companies. Autodesk was originally based in Santa Cruz, California. Autodesk’s initial mainframe-based CAD software was released in 1982 as AutoCAD, originally on the Apple II, in 1983 on the IBM PC, and in 1984 on the Macintosh. Over a decade, the company went through a series of mergers and acquisitions. In 1998, Autodesk was acquired by San Francisco-based consumer-electronics manufacturer E-Trade, Inc. E-Trade spun off Autodesk in 2006.
AutoCAD is part of a family of products including AutoCAD LT (a lower-cost version for use by small businesses), AutoCAD Classic (an earlier version), Inventor, Inventor Autodesk.AutoCAD is AutoCAD’s flagship product. It is used to design everything from bridges and machinery to houses and factories. It has no predefined limits on the types of objects that can be designed. While there is a version for the Apple II and Macintosh, it was always the mainstay of AutoCAD development.
The main advantage of AutoCAD is that the software can be set up to work in conjunction with various types of CAD systems. Although it is mainly a drafting program, it can also be
AutoCAD Crack+ Keygen
AutoCAD, along with the other Autodesk products, are available as a desktop application (AutoCAD LT), a web browser plug-in (AutoCAD LT Web), a web service (ADCES) or a mobile app (AutoCAD Mobile and AutoCAD Mobile Lite).
