Summary: What's new in AutoCAD 2013 compared to other versions

This table summarizes the news that AutoCAD 2013 has in relation to the changes reported by AutoDesk in the latest versions (AutoCAD 2012, 2011 and 2010)

Autocad 2013 freeIt is clear that these are the significant news that AutoDesk reports, some of these have been modified or improved in other versions and also some had slight functionalities in previous versions but that AutoDesk made them official until they were fully operational.

As you can see, from AutoCAD 2009 when the big interface change is made, 2010 hardly meant 7 substantial improvements. There is a balance between three other versions with a slight increase in AutoCAD 2012.

It is not the same as the case of the Mac version, which started with 2011 and the implementation of functionalities is slower, in 2012 a good amount of features were seen (17 in total) although in a great majority of debts that were pending of the version 2011 2013 hardly report 7, although with the advantage that these are already properties of the 2013 version for PC.
