      * Productivity data based on a series of studies commissioned by Autodesk to an outside consultant. The seven toolset studies compared basic AutoCAD to the specialised toolsets within AutoCAD when performing tasks commonly done by experienced AutoCAD users. Overall productivity gain calculation based on adding the completion times of specific tasks in the toolset and also in basic AutoCAD and then calculating the per cent difference between the two totals across seven studies. As with all performance tests, results may vary based on the machine, operating system, filters and even source material. While every effort has been made to make the tests as fair and objective as possible, your results may differ. Product information and specifications are subject to change without notice.

      • Can I install AutoCAD on multiple computers?

        With a subscription to AutoCAD software, you can install it on up to 3 computers or other devices. However, only the named user can sign in and use that software on a single computer at any given time. Please refer to the Software Licence Agreement (US site) for more information.

The version years must match and you'll need to download and install the correct software for your operating system. (If you download a free trial of AutoCAD and want to try it on both platforms, you need to sign up for 2 trials, one for Windows and one for Mac. You can choose to download and try each version simultaneously or one after the other. Note that the AutoCAD mobile app isn't a part of the trial, but is included in the subscription).
