Create deployments of AutoCAD for Mac (2021 and later)

You can create custom deployments of 2021 and later releases of AutoCAD for Mac and AutoCAD LT for Mac. Deployment support isn't provided for 2020 and earlier releases of those products.


Perform these steps:

  1. Extract the .app package from the AutoCAD for Mac or AutoCAD LT for Mac .dmg file.
  2. Copy the package to a central network share.
  3. Use one of the following command lines, depending on whether you want to deploy silently or not. Adjust the product release date for your software.

Normal install:

sudo /path/to/Install\ Autodesk\ AutoCAD\

Silent install:

sudo /path/to/Install\ Autodesk\ AutoCAD\ –silent
