AutoCAD 14 vs 2000

Recommended Posts

I have been using AutoCAD 2000 almost exclusively for the past 20 years under Windows 2000 and have been very happy with it. There seems to be alot of praise for release 14. Is this simply because R13 was not so good? Any adavntages of using R14 over 2000 (R15)?

I'm curious, why would you mention 2021 in the AutoCAD Museum forum?

I never used R13 or R14. I jumped from R12 to 2000, so I don't know about advantages of 2000 over R14, but here's an article that talks about some of the new features that were added in the 2000 release.  https://fcw.com/articles/1999/05/09/featurerich-autocad-2000-debuts.aspx

We used add-ons with R14, most if not all of those were eliminated with 2000i (barely used 2000 before we moved to 2000i), never used R13 very much if at all. Are you running AutoCAD 2000i or AutoCAD 2000? IIRC, AutoCAD 2000 was unsupported on Win 2000, but ran, that's one reason we moved on to 2000i. With the add-ons R14 wasn't as good as 2000i, don't remember if 2000 was much better or not, but it probably was or we would have stayed on R14.

I have been using 2000., I have 14 but never used it. The article that @Cad64 linked suggested 2000 has multiple "layouts" in paper space which I use extensively . The other improvemnets don't apply to me. I am thinking of unloading some software that's been unused but before I get rid of 14, I just wanted to make sure there wasn't anything special about it.

 

I try to keep things simple, that's why I stayed with 2000i, but there are obvious drawbacks.

I run my AutoCAD 2000i on Windows 10 at home with no problems as of yet.

R14 and 2000 are both solid versions, and each appeals to me in it's own way. In my experience, R14 is rock-solid and does not crash for any reason. But I will give a slight edge to 2000 for overall performance and is far and away the fastest-running AutoCAD ever created. Even the modern version on the most insane machine lags behind 2000.

 

2000 did have some nifty improvements, but nothing very game changing for me. I can produce drawings just as quickly in R14.
