I have been using AutoCAD since R.13. I heard many people don’t like that release, but it looks fine for me :). I use almost every release of AutoCAD since then. Some are not for so long, but at least I get how they look and feel. There are some features added in each release. Sometimes the new features are excellent, but sometimes the release is just feel like we see the AutoCAD n plus 1.
I think it would be interesting for us to share: which AutoCAD release is become your all time favorite?
Of course, not the latest if your reason is “because it has all the previous features in it”. But the release that you think actually add some cool and very useful features.
What’s my favorite?
I remember that Autodesk added some major features in AutoCAD releases. The dynamic block in AutoCAD 2006, 3D enhancements in 2007, Annotation scaling in 2008, and so on.
But my all time favorites is AutoCAD 2008. I love the annotation scaling and layer properties per-viewport. I think they are major enhancements in AutoCAD that very useful. I’m not really an AutoCAD 3D fans, so I skip the 2007 and 2010.
