    Smile Help a new engineer!

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi, I appeal to those experienced engineers who in the past have used the initial version AUTOCAD. If one of them does not require that version, I beg him to turn into Santa and help me to begin this job using an original program that I in my turn will be able to give it away to another colleague who enter this job honestly, when I could buy the latest Autocad.
    Thank you very much for you time.

    Do you know there are low cost alternatives to AutoCAD? Ex. - Bricscad.

    Do you know there is a free 2D AutoCAD-clone called Draftsight by Dassault Systemes? They also provide a free user's guide.

    Thank you for your answer. Yes i know Briscad but i have some useful lisp that dosen't go with other soft Cad. To be able to get an ok from the autorities we need to work with an original Cad soft not a free soft. Thank you for your time.

    It is technically illegal for someone to sell or even give away their copy of AutoCAD.

    If you need access to lisp then try BabaCAD as it supports lisp and it too is free. BabaCAD is Bosnian by the way.

    hi. I don,t need a sudent version. It is not ilegal to make a ghift your old verion of Autocad if you do not use it any more. It is important to be 3d but not essential.

    No one said anything about a student version although if you were a student you could download AutoCAD for free.

    Yes, it is still illegal even to give away one's copy of AutoCAD since AutoDesk has sold the user a license to "use" the program. In the eyes and in the EULA of AutoDesk users do not outright own their copies of AutoCAD or any other AutoDesk program.

    OK, so now you need 3D capability. Thanks for letting us know.

    Under a new program by AutoDesk AutoCAD can be rented on an "as needed" basis. Contact your local AutoDesk reseller for pricing information. You pay only for the time you need it.

    Pay-as-you-go access to AutoCAD.

    http://www.autodesk.com/subscription/desktop

    Bricscad does 3D.

    https://www.bricsys.com/en_INTL/bricscad/3dmodeling.jsp

    By the way....Bricscad supports lisp too. Search on "Bricscad"+"lisp". You would have to look at the Pro or Platinum versions I believe. The Pro version retails for $600 U.S. and the Platinum version retails for $920 U.S.

    I just noticed that there is support for Lisp in the Classic version as well. No 3D though.

    HI. If anyone think that can help me is ok, if only one user use a version it is no problem. Of course it will not be ok to resell your original soft if you are not a reseller authorized. It will be ok all alternative which will came with a serial key (not use any more).
    I repet if anyone want to help me is ok, even with a advise regarding free software able 3d. I am a Autocad fan as much as i am a fan of nature ( a green man). Let me to make a remark: I am searcing for Santa (because i still belive). Thank you for your time.

    Anyone with any integrity that has a copy of AutoCAD they no longer use would not give it away to you or to anyone else who asks. So you are basically left searching for a Santa that has no integrity.

    OK...let's say you find your Santa. After a certain period in AutoCAD's history the person installing the software would have to go online (or call) AutoDesk to request an authorization code. Before the code is downloaded to the user's computer the "legality" of the software would be checked. If you were found to be in possession of a copy of AutoCAD previously licensed to someone else you would not receive an authorization code. This would leave you with a program that, at best, would operate for 30 days before it became unusable.

    Yes, there were versions (earlier ones) that shipped with a serial number (000-00000000) and an authorization code (XXXXXXXX). I happen to have several of these one of which is AutoCAD 2004. But it is registered to the company I work for and cannot be handed over (transferred) to anyone else even if the company wanted to.

    If you are looking for a free version of a CAD program that has 3D capabilities do an Internet search.
