Autodesk have extended to us their usual kindness of downloading the latest version of AutoCAD® 2014, for free. The download link is at the bottom of this post.
But, as you’d expect, it’s free for 30 days only. A word of warning – if you decide to try it out, make sure that any files you work on get saved as the version of AutoCAD® that you have already – I made the mistake a few years back of upgrading to a trial version and saving my files as that version, only to later find that I could no longer work on them due to my trial licence expiring! Luckily I was due an upgrade anyway…
