If you are getting crashes or visual display issues in your Autodesk software like AutoCAD, Inventor, Revit, 3ds Max, Maya  etc. it could very well be your graphics driver.

Only one problem, the newest version on AutoCAD they have listed is 2014. Did they change things in 2015-16? Do we not worry about drivers now?

Certain you've got the right site?  When I use that link I get 2016 products.

Without fail, every time I use an 'approved' driver, my system gets unstable, lol.  I think it is less an issue of their driver approval and more murphys law just smacking me around. LOL

AutoCAD? Not me, 2014 is the newest they have listed, like my screenshot shows.

Suites only go up to 2014; individual base-products (no verticals?) go up to 2016.

For my NVIDIA Quadro K4000 GPU, NVIDIA publishes driver version 311.50, whereas Autodesk publishes driver version 353.62.  :-o



... If only they made such progress with their own products!? Haha :-D

Apparently I already have a newer driver installed (354.13) - which after some memory jogging, came from here (see link below), where NVIDIA posts even more current beta builds (downloading 361.75 now), which claim better Win10 support, etc. for those who may be interested:
