Key features of AutoCAD are rendering (3D) design, detailed editing, and rendering for printed or web applications. There are two components to AutoCAD: AutoCAD Architecture and AutoCAD LT. The Architecture component is the most commonly used part of the product. It contains the 3D modeling and rendering tools, and supports pre-press file preparation, print or web publication, and document management. The AutoCAD LT component supports 2D drafting and plotting tools. AutoCAD Architecture (and AutoCAD LT) does not include 2D drafting or any kind of drawing tools. It can only import and export 2D drawing formats.
There are two versions of AutoCAD. AutoCAD LT does not provide most of the tools of AutoCAD Architecture. AutoCAD Architecture is a more powerful version of AutoCAD LT, including some of the most important AutoCAD features such as creating 2D drawings, editing and rendering. As the name implies, AutoCAD Architecture is available in both a free and paid version. The free version is still relatively powerful, but does not support multipage editing or rendering. AutoCAD Architecture costs $999.00 annually, whereas the AutoCAD LT version of AutoCAD costs $299.00 annually. As of 2019, a standalone AutoCAD Architecture program costs $1,299.00.
If you are already a licensed AutoCAD user and would like to upgrade to AutoCAD Architecture, there is a licensing option to purchase AutoCAD Architecture from Autodesk, or you can purchase the software from other CAD vendors. You must contact your local Autodesk representative to purchase AutoCAD Architecture, but licensing is available from $1,299.00 annually or $1,499.00 for a perpetual license. Note that this does not include AutoCAD LT or other AutoCAD-compatible software.
AutoCAD Architecture is available in the following languages: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese (Brazilian, Spanish, and Portuguese), Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Russian. Additional language versions are available for AutoCAD Architecture.
History of AutoCAD
When AutoCAD Architecture was introduced in 2014, it became available as a subscription-based service or as a perpetual license. AutoCAD Architecture was first released in 2008. It was initially released as a competitor to Solidworks by Dassault Systèmes (now Solidworks Corporation), and

AutoCAD PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) and CATIA have Eclipse-based development environments, and AutoCAD’s Eclipse plugin was based on that of AutoCAD LT.
AutoLISP is a language written by John Warnock (and others) in the late 1970s. It is a Lisp-like macro expansion language.
Visual LISP is a visual development language (also known as a visual Lisp) with which users can develop applications for AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT. In this case „visual“ refers to the user interface. In contrast to Visual LISP, Visual Basic is a programming language.
AutoCAD is able to interpret Visual LISP scripts.
AutoCAD LT does not allow any programming, but users can develop macros with Visual LISP and send them to AutoCAD LT. These macros can be used in Autodesk Animator, Maker of AutoCAD-based motion graphics tools. Visual LISP development for AutoCAD LT is a part of the Visual LISP product line.
ObjectARX is an architecture-centric extension for AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT, released in 2003 and discontinued in 2006.
Extended Reality Toolkit (XRT)
In January 2011, the Autodesk Research group published XRT, a framework that enables the use of existing engines in Autodesk 3D design and visualization software. XRT is being offered as a free software product for cross-platform development. In the meantime, Autodesk plans to implement an XRT-based plugin for AutoCAD for Windows and AutoCAD LT. This plugin, announced on 19 September 2010, is based on Unity3D.
XRT uses the following principles:
A state-of-the-art toolkit for enabling new functionality: it consists of programming tools, the XRT Language and XRT Project, the XRT virtual environment and the XRT Developer Studio.
Automated scripting for development and deployment of custom applications that run in a virtual environment.
The XRT Language is a declarative and functional programming language.
XRT plugins are plug-ins that can be developed with XRT.

What’s New in the?
Toggle with a single keystroke: In all other major CAD applications, you typically have to use the mouse and press a button to toggle between two choices. AutoCAD offers an unprecedented range of flexibility with your drawings, allowing you to toggle almost any feature in your drawing. (video: 1:12 min.)
More command abbreviations: Command abbreviations make it easy to produce drawings quickly. In addition to the abbreviation tools that AutoCAD 2023 introduces, you can now use F6 and F8 as a shortcut for the two most popular command abbreviations, DW and DM. (video: 1:17 min.)
Accelerate your workflow with faster graphics: Now you can more easily see what is going on in your drawing as you work. With the new Drawing Graphics View, drawing tools can now display on a static frame of the drawing, even when you are not actually drawing. (video: 1:06 min.)
Add columns of numbers easily: With AutoCAD’s latest spreadsheet integration, you can add and edit columns of numbers in a spreadsheet in a drawing. No more manually assigning number blocks and setting scale factors. (video: 1:23 min.)
Improve the look of your work with new tools: By combining the look of your original design with a new color scheme, you can more easily incorporate your design into the context of your drawing. With AutoCAD’s new Cross-Reference capability, you can now create an exact copy of your drawing and incorporate it into another drawing with just one click. (video: 1:04 min.)
Discover the new 3D modeling tools in AutoCAD 2023. Get creative with 3D modeling tools that let you explore and model a 3D world. Save and share your work easily with 3D printing. (video: 1:18 min.)
