AutoCAD for Mac has been shipping not even a week (10/15/2010) yet tens of thousands have downloaded and tried the new product. This is a great beginning and return after an 18-year hiatus from the Apple Mac platform. It was a 2+ year project to review and rewrite some 14 million lines of code and removing some platform dependencies. Some features did not make the first release, but we covered most everything that users will need for 2D and 3D design and drafting. The team is not slowing down and are hard at work with much more to do.Check out the "Behind the Scenes" AutoCAD for Mac video live on YouTube
