Design and shape the world around you with the powerful, flexible features in AutoCAD software, one of the worlds leading 2D and 3D CAD design tools.
Autodesk has been bringing efficiencies to your design process for more than 28 years. Used by millions of people globally, AutoCAD software is a world-leading design and documentation solution. Offering robust 3D free-form design tools and powerful drafting and documentation capabilities, AutoCAD drives design innovation for companies of all sizes in almost all industries.
Explore Your Design Ideas Create the previously unimaginable. AutoCAD gives you the flexibility you need to explore design ideas in both 2D and 3D. A powerful set of intuitive tools helps you visualize and shape your ideas, bringing innovative concepts to life.
Autodesk Inventor Fusion—An easy-to-use tool for direct modeling, helping you flexibly edit and validate models from almost any source.
3D Free-Form Design—Use robust surface, mesh, and solid modeling tools in AutoCAD software to investigate and refine your ideas.
Point Cloud Support—Bring your 3D scans to life, streamlining time-consuming renovation and restoration projects.
Powerful Visualization Tools—Add impact to your designs.
3D Navigation Tools—Quickly and intuitively walk or fly through a model.
Accelerate Documentation Speed projects from concept to completion with the powerful documentation tools in AutoCAD. Import 3D models directly into AutoCAD and instantly create intelligent 2D views. Minimize repetitive tasks and accelerate your workflow. No matter your projects size or scope, you can meet the challenge with AutoCAD software.
AutoCAD offers a broad toolset that helps you drive efficiencies throughout the drafting and documentation process, no matter what industry you are in.
Model Documentation—Automatically generate intelligent documentation for AutoCAD, Autodesk Inventor software, and other models. You can import and document designs from a wide variety of software applications including SolidWorks, Pro/ENGINEER, CATIA, Rhinoceros, and NX.
Parametric Drawing—Define relationships between objects, minimizing the time needed to edit or rework drawings.
Associative Array—Easily create arrayed objects, like windows on a building or trusses on a bridge. Plus, you can now array objects in 3D or along a specified path.
Sheet Sets—Organize and manage your drawing sheets efficiently.
Dynamic Blocks—Save time when using standard, repetitive components.
Multifunction Grips—Maximize productivity with context-aware, object-specific menus. Dont settle for second best. Rely on the drafting and documentation tools in AutoCAD to exceed expectations.
Communicate Seamlessly Share critical design data securely, efficiently, and accurately with AutoCAD (or online with AutoCAD WS web and mobile service). Native support for DWG, one of the worlds most widely used design data formats, helps you keep everyone informed at all times. With presentation-ready graphics, rendering tools, and robust plotting and 3D printing capabilities, AutoCAD helps to bring clarity and impact to all of your design communications.
AutoCAD WS—Enables you to stay connected to your designs over the web or from your mobile device.
Native DWG Support—Demand native DWG support, not a conversion or a translation.
PDF Import/Export—Share and reuse designs easily. Import PDF files as an underlay within your workspace.
Autodesk Exchange—With connected access to tips and tutorials, getting started videos, and help content, Autodesk Exchange brings the content you need directly to your AutoCAD workspace.
3D Printing—Connect online to service providers or print from AutoCAD to a local machine.
AutoCAD is communication at its best.
Customize in Ways You Never Thought Possible Your job is unique. Your software should be as well. With deep APIs, thousands of available add-ons, and a broad developer community, AutoCAD software can be customized for your particular requirements. Whether you simply want to arrange tools to match how you work or tailor the software for your industry, AutoCAD is flexible enough to fit your needs—perfectly.
Simplified Migration Tools—New and enhanced tools make it easier to migrate your custom settings.
Customizable User Interface—Get the tools you want, at your fingertips.
Programming Interface—Create specialized design and drafting applications.
Partner Products and Services—Extend AutoCAD software to suit all your needs.
Dont choose between flexibility and power. With AutoCAD, you can have both.
Model Documentation Tools ave time by automatically generating intelligent documentation for AutoCAD, Autodesk Inventor software, and other models. Import a wide variety of other formats including SolidWorks, Pro/ENGINEER, CATIA, Rhino, and NX. Drawing views, edge display, and location are instantly updated when an engineering change is made. Associative Array Functionality Save valuable rework time by establishing and maintaining a set of relationships between arrayed objects, such as windows on a building or trusses on a bridge. Plus, you can now array objects along a specified path (rather than just rectangular or polar options), saving even more time when creating conceptual designs or finished documentation.
Multi-function Grips The power of multi-function grips has been extended to more AutoCAD objects including lines, arcs, elliptical arcs, dimensions, and mleaders as well as 3D faces, edges, and vertices
AutoCAD WS With access directly from the AutoCAD 2012 interface, AutoCAD WS web and mobile application for AutoCAD software allows you to stay connected to your designs over the web or from your mobile device.
Command Line Enhancements AutoCAD 2012 now offers auto-complete options to help you access commands more efficiently. As you type at the command prompt, AutoCAD automatically completes the entry with an AutoCAD command or command alias. If you pause, it displays a list of commands whose prefix matches what youve typed enabling you to scroll and select from the list.
Autodesk Inventor Fusion Adds to the 3D conceptual design capabilities of AutoCAD and sets a new standard for professional 3D modeling ease of use. It enables you to flexibly edit and validate models from almost any source, helping you further experience the benefits of easy-to-use 3D in the native DWG format.
Simplified Migration to AutoCAD 2012 New and enhanced tools make it easier to migrate your custom settings or reset AutoCAD to the default install settings. Improved handling of tool palettes and new migration of custom materials help ease the transition to AutoCAD 2012, and a new reset tool helps easily return to default settings.
In-Canvas Viewport Controls New viewport controls enable you to change viewport settings, views, and visual styles directly on the viewport canvas.
Editable UCS Icon The UCS has been updated to allow direct manipulation. Select the UCS icon and use the multi-functional grips to change the UCS. Easily move the origin, align the UCS with objects, and rotate it around the X, Y, or Z axis without having to access the UCS command.
Delete Duplicate Objects Clean up your drawings by removing duplicate or unneeded geometry. The Delete Duplicates tool provides increased performance— especially when running on drawings with many objects.
Blend Tool Create spline objects with options for tangent or smooth continuity between two curves with the new Blend tool, speeding documentation time.
Autodesk Exchange for AutoCAD With connected access to tips and tutorials, getting started videos, downloadable plug-ins, and help content, Autodesk Exchange brings the content you need directly to your AutoCAD workspace.
Autodesk Content Explorer Instantly find your design content based on file objects or text attributes. Autodesk Content Explorer creates an index of your data based on where you instruct it to look, helping you quickly access files
3D Associative Array Use the associative array functionality to more easily define arrayed objects when designing in 3D. Each of the three types of associative arrays (rectangular, polar, and path) include the ability to array selected objects in 3D space.
