AutoCAD

One of the world's most known CAD software to design anything. Work faster from anywhere with industry-specific toolsets and AutoCAD web and mobile apps.

What is AutoCAD?

AutoCAD® is computer-aided design (CAD) software that architects, engineers and construction professionals rely on to create precise 2D and 3D drawings.

  • Draft and edit 2D geometry and 3D models with solids, surfaces and mesh objects
  • Annotate drawings with text, dimensions, leaders and tables
  • Customise with add-on apps and APIs

Work faster with industry-specific toolsets

AutoCAD® now includes industry-specific features and libraries for architecture, mechanical design, electrical design and more in industry toolsets (previously separate AutoCAD products). 

You can complete design tasks in a fraction of the time. Automate common actions such as inserting doors, generating bills of materials and creating PLC I/O drawings. Access over 750,000 intelligent objects and parts with industry libraries.

Architecture toolset
Speed up architectural drawing and documentation with over 8,000 intelligent architectural objects. Automate floorplans, sections, elevations, and more.

Electrical toolset
Boost productivity while designing and documenting electrical controls systems with over 65,000 intelligent electrical symbols. Design panel layouts and schematic diagrams.

Mechanical toolset
Accelerate product design with mechanical design features and over 700,000 intelligent manufacturing parts and symbols. Automate tasks, such as generating machine Components and creating bills of materials.

Plant 3D toolset
Produce P&IDs efficiently and integrate them into 3D plant design models using specialized plant design and engineering features. Quickly create plant layouts, schematic diagrams, and more.

MEP toolset
Efficiently draft, design, and document building systems with over 10,500 intelligent mechanical, electrical, and plumbing objects.
Easily design ductwork, electrical conduit, and circuiting for building systems.

Map 3D toolset
Improve planning and design by incorporating GIS and CAD data. Manage spatial data with standard data schema, automated business workflows, and report templates.

Raster design toolset
Convert raster images into DWG™ objects with raster-to-vector tools. Easily edit and clean up raster images while transforming them into vector drawings within a familiar AutoCAD environment.

Take the power of AutoCAD wherever you go

Stay connected to your CAD drawings at job sites and in clients’ offices with the AutoCAD web and mobile apps, included with an AutoCAD subscription.

AutoCAD mobile app
View, edit, annotate and create drawings in the field and on the go from a mobile device.

AutoCAD web app
With no installation required, simply log in to view, edit, annotate and create drawings quickly in your local web browser.
