Equipped with the right applications, a computer can be of great help in virtually any domain of activity. When it comes to designing and precision, no other tool is as accurate as a computer. Moreover, specialized applications such as AutoCAD give you the possibility to design nearly anything ranging from art, to complex mechanical parts or even buildings.
Suitable for business environments and experienced users
After a decent amount of time spent installing the application on your system, you are ready to fire it up. Thanks to the office suite like interface, all of its features are cleverly organized in categories. At a first look, it looks easy enough to use, but the abundance of features it comes equipped with leaves room for second thoughts.
Create 2D and 3D objects
You can make use of basic geometrical shapes to define your objects, as well as draw custom ones. Needless to say that you can take advantage of a multitude of tools that aim to enhance precision. A grid can be enabled so that you can easily snap elements, as well as adding anchor points to fully customize shapes.
With a little imagination and patience on your behalf, nearly anything can be achieved. Available tools allow you to create 3D objects from scratch and have them fully enhanced with high-quality textures. A powerful navigation pane is put at your disposal so that you can carefully position the camera to get a clearer view of the area of interest.
Various export possibilities
Similar to a modern web browser, each project is displayed in its own tab. This comes in handy, especially for comparison views. Moreover, layouts and layers also play important roles, as it makes objects handling a little easier.
Sine the application is not the easiest to carry around, requiring a slightly sophisticated machine to properly run, there are several export options put at your disposal so that the projects itself can be moved around.
Aside from the application specific format, you can save as an image file of multiple types, PDF, FBX and a few more. Additionally, it can be sent via email, directly printed out on a sheet of paper, or even sent to a 3D printing service, if available.
To end with
All in all, AutoCAD remains one of the top applications used by professionals to achieve great precision with projects of nearly any type. It encourages usage with incredible offers for student licenses so you get acquainted with its abundance of features early on. A lot can be said about what it can and can't do, but the true surprise lies in discovering it step-by-step.
Key features include two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) drafting and 2D modeling, a 2D/3D designer, and a variety of tools, including the ability to draw and edit free-hand. Autodesk offers five editions of AutoCAD, ranging from Professional to Architectural, including the latest AutoCAD 2019 version.
Autodesk originally offered the first commercially successful graphics and drafting software for the Apple II microcomputer (first released in 1977), such as in-flight systems for airlines. However, these were proprietary, based on DOS/VGA, and were not easy to use.
AutoCAD was the first Autodesk software to use a graphical user interface (GUI), which presented a point-and-click toolbox of features.
While the current version (2019) of AutoCAD still runs on DOS/VGA, Autodesk is working on porting the application to Linux, Macintosh OS X, and Windows on modern graphic cards.
Originally introduced in the 1990s, AutoCAD LT is a stripped-down version of AutoCAD. It’s intended for entry-level users who do not need complex drafting and modeling features. It is for designers, architects, engineers and anyone who wants to use the design process in a fast, easy, inexpensive, small footprint solution. AutoCAD LT uses the default Windows Graphical User Interface (GUI). It also contains a set of tools called Basic, which allows users to perform drafting operations such as creation, deletion, drawing, placing, moving, and grouping of drawings and objects. Users can also combine these drawings with basic drawing commands. The user interface is based on a point and click function. For users new to CAD, the base application is AutoCAD LT 2004.
AutoCAD LT 2004
AutoCAD LT 2004 is based on AutoCAD 2002 and incorporates the user interface and toolbox of AutoCAD LT. The software allows simple 2D and 3D drawing and modeling. The software is available for Windows PCs, Macs, and select mobile devices.
AutoCAD LT 2008
AutoCAD LT 2008 is a major upgrade of AutoCAD LT 2004. The software is now completely based on Microsoft.NET technology and has the same interface as AutoCAD LT 2012. This version contains a new interface with an almost completely different set of tools

Autodesk Project Cloud
Autodesk Project Cloud is a cloud service offering based on the Autodesk Project application (formerly known as ProjectBuilder, and now named Project). It allows clients to work on any device, on any location and at any time from their Autodesk Project application on the web. Users work on the same drawings from any device, on any location and at any time. A client can connect, login, and navigate through all Project Cloud resources, from their Project application using their Autodesk account.
Computer Aided Design
Autodesk added CADD to its suite of applications, which stands for Computer Aided Design. It has traditionally been used to describe a complete suite of software for drafting, modeling and animation in 2D. The term CAD is also sometimes used in a broader sense to refer to any computer-based drafting or modeling software.
AutoCAD 2000 was released in September 1998. It was the first of the Autodesk product lines to be based on a new architecture, which allowed it to be natively available on Windows, OS X and Linux. Prior to this, the only Autodesk products available for those operating systems were the older legacy products, namely AutoCAD R14, AutoCAD 2000 and AutoCAD LT.
AutoCAD 2002 introduced many improvements and added new functionality. Notably, it introduced local editing. Previously, the user was always editing a drawing in a read-only mode. The new feature allowed the user to make changes to a drawing, while in an editing mode. The user could then commit the changes and produce a modified drawing.

“I had a role model that didn’t get it done.”
That was a statement from Mike Brown, in the month after police shot and killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Brown’s older brother, Eric, who was with the slain teen that fateful August night, put the media on notice that he wanted accountability for his brother’s death. He also stood by his pledge to remain with the protest — he’d been at the front lines for days.
The family had been demanding answers from police, and the community was responding in the streets with outrage. Mike Brown’s observation about his brother was the definition of “playing the blame game.”
For many, this comment also described our culture — in an instant, we hold the “grown man” responsible for the wrongdoing of others.
On his latest album, 24 Karat Gold, Los Angeles-based artist Rocky L.O. aka Roc Reals (pronounced Rock-a-real) takes on this theme, rapping: “Like a teenage misstep, I think I’m out of luck. I’m 24-karat gold, just a mistake.”
This line is immediately followed by another: “But I’m a true hero/Tryna save the life of a thug.” The track then ends with more self-assessment: “I’m not smarter than a fool/But I’m smarter than a fool.”
The song — which can be streamed at the link — is the latest release from Rocky L.O. who, along with collaborator, Antwain, has been working on 24 Karat Gold since May 2013. This is their second album.
His debut, 101, was released in 2012, and included features from Jay Electronica, Big K.R.I.T., Bun B, Machine Gun Kelly and more. He cites J. Cole, Pac, Stevie Wonder and Common as influences. He performed alongside the likes of MGK and Pootie Tang on Jimmy Fallon’s “Roc Reals Presents: Grown Man” last year, in celebration
