Release 14/Mechanical Desktop R4 is a mechanical 2D/3D solid modeling version of AutoCAD.
AutoCAD 2000 R14 MDT R4 works successfully with CrossOver 18.5.0 for Linux. Almost every thing works including 3D solids and AutoCAD's built-in rendering feature. Printing and Plotting work great with Linux's CUPS spooling feature. AutoCAD 2000 runs quite fast in a Windows 2000 CrossOver bottle on a HP TouchSmart Model IQ840 Desktop computer with 8GB of RAM and 512GB Hard Disk partition, running OpenSUSE Leap 15.0 and Nvidia G03 graphics drivers. The only thing that doesn't work correctly is the AutoCAD's help category window doesn't display the categories in the help window. However, the help search feature does work for looking up AutoCAD commands.

What was not tested
The internet network connection feature was not tested during this period due to time limitation.
AccuRender Version 3 Build 265, March 5, 2001, was tested and although AccuRender menu works fine within AutoCAD 2000 R14 MDT R4, the AccuRender Version 3 rendering engine locked up AutoCAD to where the only way to get out of it was to open a terminal window, search for the AutoCAD process ID number and kill that process as root user.

1. Use recent version of Wine(tested with WineÂ-1.1.17)
2. Download winetricks by following command
3. Install required components by following command
sh winetricks corefonts tahoma

4. Change Screen Resolution in Wine configuration by typing
Then go to Graphics tab and change Screen Resolution from 96 to 108

2. POL Helper plug-in
