AutoCAD® software includes industry-specific toolsets; improved workflows across desktop, web, and mobile; and new features such as DWG™ compare.

Design every detail with AutoCAD software, one of the world’s leading CAD applications.

A software Desktop Subscription is a new purchasing option that allows you to license Autodesk desktop software on a short-term basis to meet a variety of business and budget considerations, such as taking on finite projects or hiring temporary staff. Customers who purchase Desktop Subscriptions receive similar benefits to customers who purchase perpetual licenses with Autodesk® Subscription. These benefits include basic support, access to the latest software and product enhancements and in some cases, access to select cloud services. Desktop Subscriptions grant license holders the right to use the software for a specified period of time with the option to renew their contract for additional payments.

Work faster with specialized toolsets.

AutoCAD now includes industry-specific features and libraries for architecture, mechanical design, electrical design, and more.

  • Automate floor plans, sections, elevations, and other drawings.
  • Draw piping, plumbing, and ducting for faster design with mechanical tools.
  • Design ductwork, electrical conduit, and circuiting for HVAC, plumbing, and electrical with MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing).
