AutoCAD® is computer-aided design (CAD) software that architects, engineers and construction professionals rely on to create precise 2D and 3D drawings.
Every subscription to AutoCAD includes access to AutoCAD and seven industry-specific toolsets. Autodesk commissioned an outside consultant to conduct studies about each of the seven specialized toolsets. Across seven different studies, the average productivity gain was about 63% for tasks completing using a specialized toolset.*
(Time savings with the Architecture toolset up to 61%)
(Time savings with the MEP toolset up to 85%)
(Time savings with the Mechanical toolset up to 55%)
Map 3D Toolset
(Time savings with the Map 3D toolset up to 60%)
(Time savings with the Electrical toolset up to 95%)
Plant 3D Toolset
(Time savings with the Plant 3D toolset up to 74%)
AutoCAD® 2022 software includes industry-specific toolsets, an improved connected experience across platforms and Autodesk products and new automations such as Count.
