AutoCAD is licensed by Autodesk at various price levels to Autodesk customers who have the CAD software application (installation) on their own computer, and are using that computer for design, drafting, or other graphics-related activities. AutoCAD can also be purchased in a perpetual license, or as a perpetual license with a software maintenance plan (SMP) that provides support, upgrades, and add-ons. AutoCAD is not available as a hosted solution.

Customer license types

AutoCAD is available for a wide variety of licenses. A customer is an individual, company, or organization that buys the software application for its own use, rather than for distribution to others. AutoCAD is available as a perpetual license, a perpetual license with a Software Maintenance Plan (SMP), an upgrade subscription, a subscription, or a trial license.

Perpetual license

With a perpetual license for AutoCAD, the customer has the right to use the software application on their own computer indefinitely, so long as they continue paying the license fee (AutoCAD subscription or perpetual license fee). Perpetual license includes all future upgrades and upgrades. Perpetual license comes with the following benefits:

Software maintenance plan (SMP)

A software maintenance plan (SMP) is a subscription to AutoCAD that includes a maintenance contract with Autodesk, and AutoCAD upgrades and add-ons for a fixed period of time, such as two years, or five years. With a software maintenance plan (SMP), the customer is bound to AutoCAD by contract; therefore, the customer is not free to use or upgrade any other CAD application. The annual fee for software maintenance plans is generally much higher than the subscription fee for perpetual license.


AutoCAD offers upgrades to existing customers every year. These upgrades include new features, new add-ons, or new ways to use the software application.


AutoCAD has a suite of add-ons. Add-ons are optional software components that can be added to AutoCAD that extend its functionality. Add-ons are sold as parts in the AutoCAD Add-On Catalog.


AutoCAD offers a subscription option that is a mix of a perpetual license and a software maintenance plan. The customer receives a perpetual license and a software maintenance plan (SMP), for a fixed

In addition, AutoCAD has also been adopted as the main file format for Autodesk 3D Studio Max and Autodesk Animator Pro, although the latter is in fact more of a graphics editor. All of these have applications that interface with AutoCAD to provide additional functionality.

AutoCAD was originally developed by AutoDesk for use in the drafting industry. The first version of AutoCAD was shipped in 1981, for use with the Autocad LT (Laser Tape) software. The first release of AutoCAD was called AutoCAD 3.0, and was initially used for CAD drafting. The company’s first widely released CAD program, AutoCAD LT, was shipped in 1986.

AutoCAD LT is built using the native programming language AutoLISP. The original release was called AutoCAD LT-1.01, or “Autocad LT”. However, the original release used only the AutoCAD LT-1.0 features. The AutoCAD LT-1.01 release supported both LT-1 and LT-2 features. Later releases included support for older AutoCAD releases, such as AutoCAD 1.0.

In April 2007, the company released the first commercially supported C++ API: the AutoCAD Application Programming Interface (API) 3.0.

AutoCAD first shipped with a concurrent editing capability in 1982, the same year that the AutoCAD LT software was released. Since the introduction of concurrent editing, AutoCAD has been the only commercial program that supports concurrent editing, allowing for multiple users to work on the same drawing at once.

The first 3D drawing capability was added in 1985.

AutoCAD is the first CAD program to support scripting languages. In 1985, AutoCAD added its first version of LISP, AutoLISP, which was later replaced with Visual LISP.

AutoCAD has been ported to several operating systems. In 1986, the Windows port was released. A version for the Atari ST followed in 1988. In the early 1990s, a version for MS-DOS was released as well. The Macintosh port was released in 1989. In 1994, a version for Unix was released, and a version for Apple II was released in 1995.

The first add-on software was introduced in 1989. AutoCAD was the first CAD program to introduce Add-On Tools
