AutoCAD 2004 allows users to create two- and three-dimensional technical drawings. The 2004 version is faster than previous versions, and it contains improvements to enterprise management and file size. Drawing files with this version are 40 percent smaller, which allows the documents to load faster, saving users time. The program supports both DWG and DWF6 formats, as well as i-drop, which allows users to drag components from multiple designs and drop them into the current file.
AutoCAD 2004 supports a program called Object Enabler, giving users the capability of inserting digital signatures and utilizing objects in industry-specific applications. The program opens much faster than previous versions, and drawing windows is maximized by default upon start-up.
AutoCAD 2004 allows users to copy and paste from Microsoft Word, and it offers a full-display text drag. The program also features true colors and new commands. Additionally, AutoCAD 2004 provides the ability to share documents via the Cloud or other mobile app for easy collaboration with other users.
AutoCAD 2004 is available for a free trial download and is supported by Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Vista operating systems. The installation uses an offline installer and works with both 32- and 64-bit systems. The free download is valid for 30 days, after which users may choose to purchase a license or subscription.
