AutoCAD did not exist on Windows. Indeed, Mac versions existed before 1992, when the publisher Autodesk abandoned the Mac platform. On September 1, 2010, the Autodesk editor announces the return of AutoCAD on Mac, which will be available at the end of 2010.
Autodesk stopped supporting apple computers in 1994. Over several years, no compatible version for Macintosh computers was developed. In 2010 Autodesk announced that it would support the Mac OS X again in the future. Most of the functions found in the 2012 version of Windows can be found in the Mac version of 2012. The main difference is the user interface and the program layout. The interface is designed so that users who are already familiar with Apple OS X software find it similar to other Mac applications. Autodesk also has different features to take full advantage of Apple’s Trackpad capabilities as well as full-screen mode in Apple’s X Lion. AutoCAD 2012 for Mac supports both editing and backing up files in DWG format which will allow the file to be compatible with other platforms in addition to OS X. AutoCAD 2014 for Mac supports Apple Mac OS X V10.9.0 or higher (Mavericks), OS X v10.8.0 or higher (Mountain lion) with the 64-bit Intel processor.
AutoCAD LT 2013 is available through the Mac App Store for $ 899.99. The full featured version of AutoCAD 2013 for Mac, however, is not available through the Mac App Store because of the $ 999 price limit set by Apple. AutoCAD 2014 for Mac is available for purchase of the Autodesk Website for $ 4,195 and AutoCAD LT 2014 for Mac for $ 1,200, or from an Autodesk Authorized Reseller
