    If there was a beta program and if, theoretically, I was on this imaginary program, then I would be restricted by NDA from telling you there might be some things you'll like, some you won't care about, and some you'll wonder why they still haven't done.

    If I were to be specific, anyway.
    therrien, FBlome, Hirvio and 6 others like this.

    So theoretically, basically the same as almost every year then?

    And I have AutoCAD LT 2020 running, but haven't looked at the 2019 version good enough to see what has changed as I try to get out of that program asap most of the time

    I'm curious what the upgrade timeline is with everyone? I have made the decision to upgrade every 3 years. Right now we are in AEC 2018.

    I pretty much upgrade every year, but usually start doing money making projects after the first service pack (or whatever Autodesk calls them), so most of the time during summer. This year most of my projects are still in 2018 because I have 3th parties to think about. One of them is going to do all their new project in 2020 somewhere during summer, so I will be doing their projects in 2020 from that time as well (they skipped 2019).

    I will be trying to run new projects in 2020 from summer, but it depends on 3th parties again.

    We have AEC collection licences and I'm seeing a couple of flavours of autocad 2020 today. Downloaded and installed on my machine.
    Previously I've waited at least for the first service pack in any release before rolling it out (and waiting to be informed by others) but I'm starting to think ill just crack it open when Revit 2020 is released and see what happens. Obviously I won't get new projects started on it straight away.
    I'm not that worried about addins because I see them as time savers rather than anything to do with something that can't be done natively, even if it takes longer, although I must say I don't (yet) rely on things like CTC. When the app/s gets updated then cool, things should speed up again.

    If a firm's only real need for AutoCAD is to occasionally open a civil DWG file, is there any reason to keep multiple versions installed? DWG files are backwards compatible, therefore they can be opened/accessed with the latest version.

    We use autocad to open all sorts of consultants files. Usually to remove crap floating off in the distance. Backwards compatibility is also why I have no hesitation in installing it straight away.
    i know barely enough about autocad to scrape by, and zero about the program's development, except that they are regularly leading the way with version releases. I just see autocad as the most long standing traditional user group so I guess that's why they're still at the front of the line.
