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
  • Customize with add-on apps and APIs

Work faster with specialized toolsets

AutoCAD now includes industry-specific features and intelligent objects for architecture, mechanical engineering, electrical design, and more.
  • Automate floor plans, sections, and elevations
  • Draw piping, ducting, and circuiting quickly with parts libraries
  • Auto-generate annotations, layers, schedules, lists, and tables
  • Use a rules-driven workflow to accurately enforce industry standards

Work anywhere with included mobile and web apps

The original AutoCAD 2D and 3D CAD software provides innovative tools for design and documentation.

AutoCad Architecture

Adds features for architectural drawing, documentation, and schedules, and for automating drafting tasks.

AutoCad Electrical

Adds electrical design features to help you create, modify, and document electrical controls systems.

AutoCad Map 3D

Incorporate GIS topology with AutoCAD so you can use and maintain CAD and GIS data for planning, design, and data management.

AutoCad Mechanical

Adds a library of standards-based parts and tools to help you create, modify, and document mechanical designs for manufacturing.

AutoCad Mep

Adds features to help you draft, design, and document MEP building systems in an AutoCAD environment.

AutoCad Plant 3D

Adds features to help you produce P&IDs, and then integrate them into a 3D plant design model.

AutoCad Raster Design

Adds raster-to-vector tools to help you convert raster images into DWG™ objects. Edit scanned drawings in a familiar AutoCAD environment.
