When you download a software, it is actually the latest iteration of the particular tool. Over time, the developers release updates and enhancements for the software. These updates bring in new features, crush any bugs or glitches, and fix any residual issues that have been reported by users or detected by the developers themselves.

AutoCAD also is such a software. Every month, Autodesk tends to release bug fix updates or new features to the AutoCAD platform, and as such, it has become imperative for AutoCAD users to keep their copy updated. This ensures that the tool works better, and more than anything, remains compatible with your systems without any unforeseen errors.
