Video of the Month: Throwback to AutoCAD 2.18


Our video of the month for March is going full-on throwback.

This year Autodesk and AutoCAD celebrate their 35th anniversary, and AutoCAD officially turns the big 3-5 in December. Just recently, NASDAQ feted Autodesk with a shout-out on the jumbo tron in Times Square. And employees, partners, and customers got into the spirit with parties from Boston to San Francisco. Check out the pics of the old Autodesk t-shirts and gear!


But back to the video. Let’s take a walk down memory lane to 1985-1986, courtesy of Autodesk’s Shaan Hurley. Check out his blog article and this great video where he runs AutoCAD 2.18. This was the first release with AutoLISP and only had 90 commands at the time. AutoCAD has definitely come a long way—and just gets better with age.
