AutoCAD 2.6 included a sample drawing of a nozzle that has been one of the iconic sample drawings in AutoCAD release history. While it may seem trivial today to draw this, back in the early 1980’s it was really challenging for the creator of the drawing Don Strimbu in 1983 using a primitive featured AutoCAD running on floppy disks and a slow 8086 computer. I have a running version of AutoCAD 2.18 that I run in a virtual machine from time to time for fun as there wasn’t even an UNDO command back then, or the ELLIPSE command. I have always wanted to run a AutoCAD user challenge on an old 286 computer and see how todays top AutoCAD user would fare using it as it might be an entertaining Autodesk University event.
