AutoCAD Service Packs & Updates

Autodesk typically releases one or more Service Packs for each year version of AutoCAD it rolls out. Each year's Service Pack(s) provide repairs of the all but inevitable bugs and issues that arise with each new version. Generally offered a few weeks to a few months after the initial release of each year version of AutoCAD, the Service Pack is a patch that you can download and apply to your installation of AutoCAD 2014 through 2017. Service Packs can fix everything from slow performance to issues with specific AutoCAD features.


Starting in 2018, Autodesk replaced the Service Packs with updates, available through the Autodesk Desktop App (available with AutoCAD but not F/X CAD).


F/X CAD users

F/X CAD 2018 and newer

Starting with 2018, Autodesk discontinued its Service Packs and instead began offering bug fixes within updates. Although we try to hold off on releasing F/X CAD until we can build any updates into the software, it's possible that a bug sneaks under the radar. For 2018 and newer, we bundle the update into the installer. If you need the update, you can uninstall and reinstall F/X CAD using the latest installer on our website for your year version.


However, we first recommend searching for your specific issue in our Knowledge Base using the search bar at the top of this page. You may be able to resolve it without having to reinstall.


F/X CAD 2017

We built the AutoCAD Service Pack into our release of F/X CAD 2017. First, try searching for your specific issue using the search box at the top of this page. Can't find the solution? Let us know of your issue via a technical support ticket.
