The term Autodesk, Inc. was coined in 1992 by Frank Kowalski to describe Autodesk’s salesforce.
AutoCAD is available in a variety of versions, depending on the capabilities and application of the intended users. There are AutoCAD versions aimed at beginners, professionals and students. The lowest-priced version, the AutoCAD LT (formerly AutoCAD 2008), is offered to students for free. Other versions include AutoCAD 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2016, and 2017.
Autodesk was founded in 1982 by Frank Kowalski and Dennis Thomas and is headquartered in San Rafael, California, USA.
“This software is for professionals and artists, and not your standard hobbyist. We are talking about the big guns in the CAD world, the people who have a computerized design business.” – Frank Kowalski

The first version of AutoCAD, called AutoCAD LT (also known as AutoCAD 2008 or AutoCAD 2008 LT), was released in October 1982 as a desktop app. It was developed to fill the gap that existed between the first personal computer (PC) and the first CAD software. AutoCAD LT allowed users to save, load and exchange files with a standard, low-cost microcomputer.
AutoCAD LT was developed over a period of several months by a team of about 20 developers and spread across several development centers. The first version was a DOS-based application running on a 286 computer using an internal graphics controller. Some early models included the MC17050, MC14550 and the MC1415. It was also available for the Apple Macintosh and IBM PC-compatible computers.
Versions 1.5, 2.0 and 2.1 were released in 1983, 1985 and 1987 respectively.
The first version of AutoCAD for Windows, AutoCAD 2000, was released in 1989.
A version for Macintosh, AutoCAD LT, was released in April 1990. This version is
AutoCAD Product Key, released in 1989, was the first integrated CAD product available to users. Though there were previous modelling applications on the market, they were not integrated into a single file format that others could read. With AutoCAD, users could draw on the screen, add layers, modify objects in real time and have the drawing processed and printed. It was compatible with Microsoft Windows, Mac OS, and DOS.
The first version of AutoCAD was developed by Mitch Tulloch, a programmer at McRee’s Computer Graphics. Bill Sienkiewicz, a draftsman at SIGMA Corp., worked on AutoCAD’s first incarnation. Tulloch and Sienkiewicz worked on the drafting program until SIGMA was acquired by McRee, whereupon Tulloch was asked to finish the product for release.
The first version of AutoCAD was released to the public in January 1990 as AutoCAD 1.
In 1994, he released the second version of AutoCAD, AutoCAD 2000. This version included new features such as “themes” for the GUI and improved drafting functionality. This version also included a few bug fixes and an extended time line for use with a newer version of AutoCAD.
In 1995, he released the third version of AutoCAD, AutoCAD 2002. This version includes additional engineering functionality and a new color palette system to highlight and separate layers for more flexibility. AutoCAD 2002 is the first version of AutoCAD to support the AutoCAD .dwg file format.
In 2004, he released the fourth version of AutoCAD, AutoCAD 2005. This version allows for the exchange of data between the engineering and architectural CAD systems through the.DGN file format. This makes it possible to have both systems in one document.
In 2007, he released the fifth version of AutoCAD, AutoCAD 2009, which includes many improvements to the interface and enhanced functionality for engineering. The new interface is now based on the U.S. Navy’s MATE (Mobile Applications using Enhanced Techniques) project and uses a new programming language called AECAD. AutoCAD 2009 is the first version to support AutoCAD .dwg files with the.dwg extension. AECAD was created to offer the flexibility of programming a GUI with Autodesk Design Review, to program and automate drawings using programming languages such as Visual

Vascular anomaly of the liver.
Vascular anomalies of the liver are extremely rare. Hepatic arterial portosystemic shunt and Kasabach-Merritt syndrome are the most common. About one-third of patients have no cutaneous findings or only a mild skin lesion. Of the remaining cases, a large number have visceral manifestations. We report a patient with Kasabach-Merritt syndrome associated with a hepatic vascular anomaly, congenital portosystemic shunt.Bulk-fill-based resin composite restorations: a clinical study.
In this in-vivo study, the clinical performance of bulk-fill-based resin composite restorations (two- and three-step; Z350, Z350XT, Tetric EvoCeram; 3M ESPE, St. Paul, MN, USA) was evaluated. In particular, the aim was to evaluate marginal integrity, marginal discoloration, microleakage, secondary caries and the survival rate after 2 years. Moreover, the wear of the materials was evaluated after 12 months. The results indicated that all materials performed well clinically. However, 3M Z350XT had a significantly higher survival rate (89.5%) than the other two materials (Z350, 78.5%; Tetric EvoCeram, 74%). Regarding the wear rate of the materials, 3M Z350XT and Tetric EvoCeram were significantly lower (P = 0.000) than 3M Z350. Regarding the marginal integrity, no statistically significant differences were found among the materials. For marginal discoloration and microleakage, no statistically significant differences were found among the materials. Secondary caries were found in four 3M Z350XT restorations, none in 3M Z350, and one in Tetric EvoCeram. In conclusion, 3
