Autodesk AutoCAD:
Design anything.

AutoCAD provides best-in-class design experience with enhanced automation.
Trusted by millions. Built on decades of innovation.

AutoCAD is trusted by millions and with robust drafting capabilities, industry-specific toolsets, and web and mobile apps – no CAD alternative comes close.

Used by professionals

Architects, engineers and construction professionals use AutoCAD to design and annotate 2D geometry and 3D models with solids, surfaces and mesh objects. Create a customised workspace to maximise productivity with add-on apps.

A connected experience

Use AutoCAD in the field, at home, and on the go with the included AutoCAD web and mobile apps. Create, view, edit and annotate drawings on your mobile or using your PC browser.

Work faster

 Work faster with industry-specific features & libraries. The newest updates let you collaborate with teammates, gather drawing data more quickly and export designs to other Autodesk products.

The Difference

AutoCAD has 6 industry-specific specialised toolsets included with each subscription.

Across seven studies, customers increased productivity by 63% on average for tasks completed using a specialised toolset.

  • Architecture toolset: 8,000+ intelligent architectural objects and styles. Automate floorplans, sections and elevations.
  • Mechanical toolset: 700,000+intelligent manufacturing parts, features and symbols. Automate generating machine components and creating bills of materials.
  • Electrical toolset: 65,000+ intelligent electrical symbols for electrical controls systems. Design panel layouts and schematic diagrams.
  • MEP toolset: 10,500+ intelligent mechanical, electrical, and plumbing objects. Design ductwork, electrical conduit, and circuiting for HVAC, plumbing and electrical.
  • Plant 3D toolset: Produce P&IDs and integrate into a 3D plant design model. Create schematic diagrams and plant layouts.
  • Map 3D toolset: Incorporate GIS and CAD data to support planning, design, and data management. Access spatial data stored in files, databases and web services.
  • Raster Design toolset: Edit scanned drawings and convert raster images into DWG objects. Easily edit raster images, lines, arcs, and circles.
