Power your teams’ creativity with automation, collaboration, and machine-learning features of AutoCAD® software. Architects, engineers, and construction professionals use AutoCAD to:
Design and annotate 2D geometry and 3D models with solids, surfaces, and mesh objects.Automate tasks such as comparing drawings, counting objects, adding blocks, creating schedules, and more.Create a customized workspace to maximize productivity with add-on apps and APIs.
What’s new in AutoCAD 2024
Stay connected to data throughout your project lifecycle with details of multi-user activities in a DWG file. Be informed of relevant file changes and access with an activity log. Activity Insights helps bridge information gaps in your collaborative AutoCAD workflows.
Smart Blocks: Replacement
Quickly find the blocks you need and replace one or more blocks via machine learning-based suggestions, recently used blocks, and manual substitute block selection.
Smart Blocks: Placement
Automatically place blocks in your drawing in the right position and scale based on where you’ve inserted the same ones thus far in your DWG file, reducing the number of clicks required and saving you time in the process.
Markup Import and Markup Assist
Rapidly send and incorporate design feedback. Import feedback from printed paper via mobile or PDFs and add changes to your drawings automatically. AutoCAD uses machine learning to detect and execute certain instructions in markup text including "MOVE," "COPY," or "DELETE" commands.
AutoCAD subscribers receive exclusive additional functionality in AutoCAD on the web, including AutoLISP API on the web and batch plot to PDF(s).
