But before you delve into my post below…remember to download your AutoCAD 2015 free trial, so you can experience all the new features.

All the New Features

The first thing to note about this new AutoCAD release is that the focus of the update was on improving workflow and efficiency. And AutoCAD 2015 delivers, with many improvements, the most notable of which are the darker theme and new interface design. Here’s where you can get an overview of what is new in AutoCAD 2015:

A Personal Take

Save on AutoCAD 2015

We all know that CAD software is not cheap. Here are three ways to save on Autodesk 2015:

  • AutoCAD LT: if you don’t need the full power of AutoCAD, consider using AutoCAD LT 2015. Here’s a handy table that shows what is available in LT. And now you can take advantage of this special and save 30%.
  • Maintenance Subscription: if you plan on using Autodesk software for more than a year, you need to get on Maintenance subscription this year. Starting next year, upgrades won’t be available anymore, making it very expensive to buy Autodesk software. This will save you thousands of dollars in the long run. Until April 25th, you get a free subscription when you upgrade from AutoCAD 2009-2014 to 2015.
  • Desktop subscription is the new way Autodesk refers to its monthly rental program. This is a great way to save if you only need an extra license for a limited time, if you are still unsure about purchasing AutoCAD 2015, or if you don’t have the cash flow to buy a perpetual license. Desktop subscription is available for AutoCAD 2015 and AutoCAD LT 2015.
