And since you're a beginner and don't really know Autocad very well, you're probably doing more harm than good creating drawings that the drafters will have to spend more time fixing.
    I am doing my job, and I am as good as some drafters, and better than some.
    Thanks

    I suggest that if you are just looking to interrogate CAD drawings and learn CAD basics then you should look into Draftsight. It's a free CAD program that can open AutoCAD drawings.
    This would be ideal if you want to work from home and look over drawings.

    However, if you wish to install it on your works PC, you MUST inform your company that you wish to have it installed, rather than going ahead and doing it without their consent.

    This is correct,
    The problem would be if you installed the AutoCAD software your PC without the company being aware you have done so.
    If you pull one of those network licenses and then a certified user cannot gain access, the CAD manager can interrogate the users logged in. If your name pops up, questions will be asked on how you gained permission to get a license and how the software became installed on your PC.
    This can be seen as a form of gross misconduct and can be a sack-able offence if you install software without the companies knowlege.

    Thanks a lot for your advice. l will let them know. They will buy the license and configure the network.
