Previously AutoCAD 2023 relied on Rosetta 2 to translate AutoCAD to work on Apple Silicon Macs which resulted in slower performance and lag.

The new AutoCAD 2024 is now much faster because it harnesses the full power of Apple Silicon chips without the Rosetta translation layer in between.

AutoCAD 2024 also features new tools including:

  • Markup Import
  • Markup Assist
  • Smart Blocks Placement
  • Trace Updates
