New AutoCAD Museum Forum

Recommended Posts

Yes, it's sad, but for some time now I've thought it would be a good idea to have an AutoCAD nostalgia forum. This is a place where we can collect images of legacy AutoCAD versions.

 

I bet you throw away all your old AutoCAD stuff with each new version. Or maybe there are some hoarders out there who still have the box that their R10 came in. I have to admit that I still have my R12 box - makes a great magazine holder (pictures later). :lol:

 

Anyway, let me know what you think of this idea and take a look at what's there already.

well i have to put in my time to get to where you guys are. i started on AutoCAD 98LT that my dad brought home from work, just in case he had to do something at home....

 

but i got my real taste of AutoCAD when i went to college, and got on 2000 & 2002. but i would LOVE to see old scanned boxes/floppy disks, and old screenshots even, and stories. i love history and the evolution of software.... 8)

 

good idea, this forum. i'm sure there will be plenty of people to keep it alive.

Yeah, that would be cool. Let some of the young-ins here see what we had to deal with back in the day ;)

First CAD package I used was DOGS. Drawing office graphics system.

 

Took forever to use as it had no mouse. It was during 1990, at Caledonia University.

Well, I have only had 3 ACADs, 2000,2004 and 2k7 so I'd also like to see how they were before the ones I know.

 

It's a really good idea, hope it doesn't bring you nightmares :D

at my last job, there was a computer that still had R12 installed. it was on an old 486 33MHz, or 66MHz, i can't remember. but, my boss made me retreive some old cut patterns off there, and i had to put them all on floppy. lol, maybe i'll give him a call, stop by and get some screenshots. haha

I still have my copy of LTr12 for students. I bought this WAY back at UNC Charlotte. I paid $50 for it. It is on 4 floppy disks! :shock:

 

I did install it not too long along on my old Win2000 box at the house and it actually ran pretty well.

It was a pain not having Polar Snapping and the improved Object Snaps.
