Experience enhanced automation with AutoCAD 2022
AutoCAD® 2022 software includes industry-specific toolsets, an improved connected experience across platforms and Autodesk products, and new automations such as Count.
What is AutoCAD
AutoCAD® is computer-aided design (CAD) software that architects, engineers and construction professionals rely on to create precise 2D and 3D drawings.
- Draft, annotate and design 2D geometry and 3D models with solids, surfaces and mesh objects
- Automate tasks such as comparing drawings, counting, adding blocks, creating schedules and more
- Customise with add-on apps and APIs
AutoCAD on any device
View, edit, and create drawings in AutoCAD on virtually any device–desktop, web, or mobile.
Cloud storage connectivity
Access any DWG file in AutoCAD with Autodesk’s cloud, as well as with leading cloud storage providers.
Insert blocks efficiently from a most recently used list with visual galleries. (video: 1:07 min.)
Display all nearby measurements in a drawing simply by hovering your mouse. (video: 37 sec.)
New dark theme
Reduce eye strain with contrast improvements, sharper icons, and a modern blue interface.
Enhanced DWG compare
Compare two versions of a drawing without leaving your current window. (video 1:05 min.)
Remove multiple unneeded objects at once with easy selection and object preview. (video 1:11 min.)
AutoCAD web app
Create, edit, and view CAD drawings from any device through the browser. (video: 1:10 min.)
AutoCAD mobile app
Create, edit, and view CAD drawings on your mobile device. (video: 39 sec.)
Save to web and mobile
Save drawings from your desktop to view and edit on the AutoCAD web and mobile apps, Xrefs included. (video: 2:13 min.)
Publish design views of your drawing in a web browser for viewing and commenting. (video: 1:07 min.)
2D drafting, drawing, and annotation
Create single or multiline text (mtext) as a single text object. Format the text, columns, and boundaries.
Create dimensions automatically. Pass the cursor over selected objects to get a preview before you create it.
Create leaders with a variety of content, including text or blocks. Easily format leader lines, and define styles.
Centerlines & center marks
Create and edit centerlines and center marks that automatically move when you move the associated objects.
Create tables with data and symbols in rows and columns, apply formulas, and link to a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.
Draw revision clouds around new changes in a drawing to quickly identify your updates.
Save views by name to easily return to a specific view for quick reference or for applying to layout viewports.
Specify the size of your drawing sheet, add a title block, and display multiple views of your model.
Use fields in text objects to display text that can be updated automatically as the field value changes.
Enable simultaneous updates by creating a live link between a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet and a table in your drawing
Extract information from objects, blocks, and attributes, including drawing information.
Add flexibility and intelligence to your block references, including changing the shape, size, or configuration.
Create and modify objects in circular or rectangular patterns, or along a path.
Apply geometric and dimensional constraints to maintain relationships between drawing geometry.
Extend the power of AutoCAD with a collection of productivity tools.
3D modeling and visualisation
Solid, surface, and mesh modeling
Create realistic 3D models of your design using a combination of solid, surface, and mesh modeling tools.
3D navigation (orbit, ViewCube, wheel)
Use 3D viewing and navigation tools to orbit, swivel, walk, and fly around a 3D model to showcase your design.
Apply visual styles to control the display of edges, lighting, and shading of your 3D model.
Create section planes to display cross-sectional views through solids, surfaces, meshes, or regions.
Apply lighting and materials to give your 3D models a realistic appearance and to help communicate your designs.
Render 3D models online without consuming processing power or disk space on your local computer.
Attach point cloud files acquired by 3D laser scanners or other technologies to use as a starting point for your designs.
Generate 2D drawings including base, projected, section, and detail views from 3D models.
Share and reuse data from PDF files by importing, exporting, or attaching them as underlays.
Share and reuse data from DGN files by importing, exporting, or attaching them as underlays.
Attach DWG files to your current drawing as externally referenced files.
Attach image files to your current drawing as externally referenced files.
View, access, manage, and plot multiple drawings as sheet sets.
Model references and import
Attach Navisworks models as underlays to your drawings, and import models from other applications.
Geographic location and online maps
Insert geographic location information into a drawing, and display a map in the drawing from an online map service.
Installation and customisation
TrustedDWG™ technology alerts you to a possible incompatibility when a file was not last saved by Autodesk software.
Customize the user interface to improve accessibility and reduce the number of steps for frequent tasks.
Specify security restrictions for running executables in AutoCAD to help protect against malicious executable code.
Record commands and input values that can be played back as an action macro.
Multi-user (network) license sharing
Pool licenses on a server to reduce costs when not all licenses are in use at the same time.
System variable monitor
Monitor current system variables against a preferred list of values. Notification balloons alert you of deviations.
CAD standards checker
Define and monitor CAD standards to maintain consistent styles for layers, linetypes, text, and dimensions.
Application Programming Interface (API)
Autodesk App Store
Customise your software with Autodesk-approved extensions.
Autodesk desktop app
Get alerts and install software updates without disrupting your workflow. View tutorials about new features.
Articulate your design vision while delivering projects more efficiently
Autodesk Building Information Modelling (BIM) solutions for building projects provide accurate, accessible and actionable insight across the building lifecycle for all project stakeholders.
Autodesk’s BIM solutions for building design can help you to:
- Improve project understanding and decision making
- Share and use the same consistent data across the project lifecycle
- Respond quickly to change with processes that are smarter and faster
Autodesk® Building Design Suite is a comprehensive portfolio of building solutions supporting both BIM- and CAD-based workflows, giving architects, engineers and contractors the ability to design, simulate, visualize and construct better buildings. The Standard edition is tailored for building designers, drafters, and detailers who need a foundational set of documentation tools. The Premium edition provides an optimized set of tools to help architects, MEP engineers, and structural engineers take advantage of the power of BIM with intelligent 3D model–based design. The Ultimate edition builds on the value of the Premium edition, with additional comprehensive tools for design and construction that provide greater insight across the building lifecycle.
