AutoCAD is the leading CAD (computer-aided design) software created by AutoDesk. It is a gigantic toolbox that lots of pros use every day to design and model new things, compute data, and manage projects.

What is AutoCAD?

Developed over dozens of years, AutoCAD stands as a worldwide computer-aided design leader. It provides hundreds of features to help industry experts design and model everything; and is used by architects, project managers, engineers, graphic designers, and many other pros.

What are the key features of AutoCAD?

  • 2D drafting: Many features are available to let you compose the 2D part of your creation. You can create single or multiline texts, automatically create dimensions, create and edit centerlines, organize using guides and views, easily extract information from objects or blocks, seamlessly purge useless objects, and lots more.
  • 3D modeling: You can easily create solids, surfaces, and mesh objects, and even apply various visual styles to control the display based on the lighting, shading, and edges of your model. In addition, you can control the way your objects are rendered by applying different materials to get the exact result you want.
  • Collaborate: Collaborating is also super easy thanks to all the different solutions included, such as the possibility to compare two versions of a drawing with external references, share and reuse data from PDF or DGN files, view and manage multiple drawings as sheet sets, and even add and review feedback from other people into your designs.
  • Toolsets: AutoCAD also provides industry-specific toolsets, including architecture, mechanical, electrical, map 3D, MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing), plant 3D, or raster design. That way, you will find very specific features to perfectly fit your needs.
  • Count: As your creation becomes bigger and bigger, counting all the blocks or all the selected objects is possible. That's pretty handy to easily detect errors, and navigate through them.
  • Almost endless possibilities: AutoCAD features hundreds of general or more specific features depending on what you want. Over the years, it has become a vast and convenient solution that empowers you to achieve almost anything you want.
