Autodesk AutoCAD r10 (Mac)

AutoCAD, from Autodesk and first released in 1982, is a powerful Computer Aided Design tool. It was, and still is, often considered the standard for CAD tools. Primarily for the IBM PC platform, it was ported to x86 machines with higher video resolutions such as the Zenith Z-100 and NEC APC. Intermittently, versions for the Macintosh appeared. Later versions use a dongle copy protection.


Release notes

This is an M68k native port of AutoCAD for the Apple Macintosh. It was one of only three versions released for early Macintosh computers. The Macintosh platform port was plagued with problems and lagged behind the DOS and Unix versions.

Version 10 for Macintosh was the initial release. It features a user interface identical to the DOS version, including its command line usage. It was slower than the DOS version on comparable hardware.
