Product keys for Autodesk 2017 products

Hello!

Product keys are required for installation of Autodesk products and are used to differentiate products that are both sold independently and as part of a product suite.


For example, installing AutoCAD 2017 as a point product requires product key 001I1, but installing AutoCAD 2017 from the Autodesk Product Design Suite Ultimate 2017 requires product key 781I1. The same version of AutoCAD is in both software packages but the product key differentiates one package from the other.

What's New in AutoCAD 2017 (Part 1). Overview

Hello!

Autodesk has released the AutoCAD 2017! Just for the record this happened in 03/21/2016.

In my opinion, AutoCAD was and remains the best program for drafting, 2D and 3D designing.


AutoCAD 2017 is not full of a big number of updates, but some of them are very necessary and important for users and CAD managers.

My review of new and updated features in AutoCAD 2017 will consist of four parts:
  • What's New in AutoCAD 2017 (Part 1). Overview
  • What's New in AutoCAD 2017 (Part 2). User Interface, Commands and new graphics system
  • What's New in AutoCAD 2017 (Part 3). PDF Import, Share Design View and 3D Printing
  • What's New in AutoCAD 2017 (Part 4). Changes in API and Developer's Documentation

Let's get started!

AutoCAD 2017 (Part 1). Overview


AutoCAD logo and launch icon has been changed


Background image on splash-screen has not changed


System Requerements


Let's look at the system requirements. There are little difference with previous version and it's fine!

System requirements for AutoCAD 2017
Operating System
  • Microsoft Windows 10
  • Microsoft Windows 8.1 with Update KB2919355
  • Microsoft Windows 7 SP1
CPU Type 1 GHz Min 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
RAM For 32-bit AutoCAD 2017:
  • 2 GB (3 GB recommended)
For 64-bit AutoCAD 2017:
  • 4 GB (8 GB recommended)
Display Resolution 1360x768 (1600x1050 or higher recommended) with True Color
Display Card Windows display adapter capable of 1360x768 and DirectX 9. DirectX 11 compliant card recommended.
Disk Space 6 GB
Browser Windows Internet Explorer 9.0 (or later)
.NET Framework .NET Framework 4.6
Additional Requirements for Large Datasets, Point Clouds, and 3D Modeling
RAM 8 GB or greater
Disk Space 6 GB
Видеокарта 1600x1050 or greater video display adapter with 128 MB VRAM or greater; Pixel Shader 3.0 or greater; Direct3D-capable workstation class graphics card
Примечание 64-bit Operating Systems are recommended if you are working with Large Datasets, Point Clouds and 3D Modeling and required if you are using the Model Documentation feature of AutoCAD

Major changes - AutoCAD 2017 officially support Windows 10, increased requirements for minimum screen resolution (1360x768 againts 1024x768 in AutoCAD 2016).

DWG file format version


AutoCAD 2017 uses the same AutoCAD 2013 DWG format (official full name AC1027 AutoCAD 2013/2014/2015/2016)


The new AutoCAD 2017 supports TrustedDWG technology like previous versions. Let me remind you that TrustedDWG appeared in AutoCAD and products based on it since the 2007 version and is designed to guarantee the integrity and inerrancy of DWG files created in Autodesk products.

TrustedDWG functionality in Autodesk software identifies DWG files that were not last saved by an Autodesk product.

When you open the DWG file, AutoCAD checks the file to the correct format and issues a message that the file is actually created in AutoCAD or on the basis of its programs and the status bar icon appears TrustedDWG the Autodesk file format. 


If the file was created or saved in a third-party program, AutoCAD will inform the user about possible errors in the file, and the incompatibility of the loss of data integrity


Autodesk Desktop App


Autodesk Desktop App is a content delivery application. It replaces the previous in-product update components and the Autodesk Application Manager.


How it works? When a hot fix, service pack or security patch becomes available, Autodesk desktop app sends a notification alert on the system tray. Clicking the link in the notification launches Autodesk desktop app and opens the Updates tab. The Updates tab provides relevant details about the update. Users can install the update at the click of a button.

The Updates tab collects all available updates for the Autodesk products installed on the computer. 


Autodesk Desktop App does not require sign-in. However, it provides the most value when you’re signed in. If you do not yet have an Autodesk account, you can create one.

Migrate Custom Settings Utility


New Migrate Custom Settings Utility in AutoCAD 2017 has become more beautiful and more functional.  It detects and clearly identifies customized settings enabling you to choose which ones you wish to migrate.


The summary report created from the migration is also greatly expanded and redesigned to offer more information and become much more readable.

License Manager


AutoCAD 2017 introduces a new License Manager which allows you to switch between license types (local, network or trial) and save your files when a network license loses connection with the License Manager.

You no longer choose your license type and enter a serial number during the install process. Instead, you select the type of license when you first launch the program.


When you running AutoCAD in trial mode, the Infocenter clearly indicates the number of trial days remaining.


You can access the License Manager from the new option in the Infocenter menu or from the About box.

The License Manager gives you information about the software license as well as installed plug-ins, add-ons, and extensions that use Autodesk licensing. You can also change the type of license or, if you’re running AutoCAD in trial mode, you can activate it.


If you are using a network license and you lose your connection to the license server, you’ll get a message saying so.

System prompts you to Save drawings and quit. If you choose to Continue working, a six-minute timer starts counting down. The message is repeated at the four- and two-minute marks. Each time you choose to continue working, the clock continues its countdown until it closes automatically. If you choose to save drawings and quit, you’re prompted only for unnamed open drawings.  All other drawings are automatically saved.

It's very good new feature because in earlier versions of the license loss leads to loss of any unsaved changes in the working files.


In next time we look at the changes in User Interface, Commands and new graphics system in AutoCAD 2017. Thanks for joining me and stay tuned!

Sincerely yours
