I found Release 12 sitting around. Anyone use this? What is the best version?

I have been using autocad for 14 years, currently using 2000, and it is really nice. Do all types of architectural and structural stuff and works great. Have fun.

I have used AutoCAD r13 and more recently 2000i. The newer versions do the same things as the old versions, but have many new features. 2000i has some really cool 3d capabilities. I am a surveyor and use it all the time at work. I also use it at home for designing new projects for the house.

I know what you mean, I had one of those kanuseit valves once. But the giggling pins kept falling out so I got fustrated and replaced the whole works with a hydraulic torque myster.
My pysciatrist says I'm okay nowoooooo.

We use r14. Most of the people that I work with moved up to 2000. I have it, but there are some things that I don't like about 2000, so I stick with r14 and use 2000 only if I have to open a dwg saved in 2000 that 14 won't open. R12 is a good program, you can add a lot of lisp routines to add automation to a lot of different things. You can even download quite a few for free. I have written several lisp programs for what we do. If you just use it for 2D dwg, r12 is just fine. R14 and 2000 have some 3D capabilities that r12 doesn't. Other than that you can do most anything with r12.

Have fun!!

I think Release 12 was one of the first for windows.
Realistically it doesn't matter what release you use, they all work. Dad's office used I think 10 for a long time since the new releases are so expensive.
There are lots of different versions depending on what you do, like specifically for Civil or Mechanical or whatnot. They all have the same stuff but the commands will be in different places...
