On this Throwback Thursday I share with you a scan I just did of one of the most important floppy disks in Autodesk’s over 30 years of history besides the original AutoCAD 1.0 floppy disks that I also have,
This floppy contains the demo drawing files shown at COMDEX 1984 where AutoCAD R2 took the industry by storm and became what it is today 31 years later. I will share images of the drawings at a later date. Remember these drawings and AutoCAD didn’t even have the ability to UNDO back then and less than 20 commands.
Read Autodesk founder John Walker’s writings about Comdex 1984. Shown in John’s photos are one of the infamous CAD/Camera products which I still have a complete package of, bonus points if you know what it did.
