Summary of all the most basic AutoCAD commands

What is AutoCAD? AutoCAD is CAD application software to draw (create) technical drawings with 2D vectors or 3D surfaces, developed by Autodesk Corporation. With its first version released in late 1982, AutoCAD was one of the first technical drawing programs to run on personal computers, especially IBM computers. In contrast, much of the technical drawing software of the day was used on a graphics terminal connected to a mainframe or workstation. Here are the most basic commands in Auto CAD.
