Autodesk® AutoCAD® includes specialized toolsets and industry specific functionalities, greater mobility with the new web and mobile apps, and the latest feature updates. Speed up your work with specialized features & libraries for mechanical design, architecture, 3D mapping, and more while working in a familiar AutoCAD interface.
Only AutoCAD, with the new web and mobile apps, gives you the freedom and flexibility to work on anything, anywhere, at any time. Design and draft using the latest features and functionality included in subscriber-only updates.
When you subscribe to AutoCAD 2019, you will gain access to the following toolsets:
Use specialized building design features and 8,000+ intelligent architectural objects and styles to speed architectural drawing and documentation. Automate floorplans, sections, elevations, and other drawings with our architectural toolset.
Use specialized mechanical design features and 700,000+ intelligent manufacturing parts, features and symbols to speed product design. Quickly draw piping, plumbing, and ducting with our mechanical toolset.
Use specialized electrical design features and 65,000+ intelligent electrical symbols to boost productivity for creating, modifying, and documenting electrical controls systems. Quickly design panel layouts, schematic diagrams, and other drawings with our electrical toolset.
Use specialized MEP engineering features and 10,500+ intelligent mechanical, electrical, and plumbing objects to draft, design, and document building systems. Easily design ductwork, electrical conduit, and circuiting for HVAC, plumbing, and electrical with our MEP toolset.
Plant 3D Toolset
Use the specialized plant design and engineering toolset to efficiently produce P&IDs and then integrate them into a 3D plant design model. Quickly create schematic diagrams, plant layouts, and other drawings with our 3D plant toolset.
Map 3D Toolset
Incorporate GIS and CAD data to support planning, design, and data management. Access spatial data stored in files, databases and web services, and aggregate it with your AutoCAD design data. Easily manage your GIS data with standard data schema, automated business workflows, and report templates for Electric North America, Electric Europe, Water, Wastewater, and Gas industries in our 3D mapping toolset.
Raster Design Toolset
Use raster to vector tools to help you edit scanned drawings and convert raster images into DWG objects. Quickly edit, cleanup and transform images, manipulate raster entities (images, lines, arcs, and circles), create vector shapes (lines and polylines), and more with our raster design toolset.
To take advantage of the industry-specific features and functionality include in the toolsets, you must download each of the toolsets individually. You can do this in two ways — the Autodesk Account, and Autodesk desktop app. The Autodesk Account portal is ideal for administrators who need to download complete software packages to create deployments. Alternately, the Autodesk desktop app is the ideal way to access products, toolsets and updates right on your desktop. For the downloads, go to the Autodesk Account or to Autodesk destop app. From there you will be able to pick and choose to download AutoCAD or any of the specialized toolsets.
When you subscribe to AutoCAD 2019, you gain access to the new AutoCAD web and mobile apps. These apps provide fast, seamless access to DWG files wherever you are, from virtually any device. Files load quickly, and you can draft, edit, measure, and annotate with the core tools and technology of original AutoCAD. These powerful features make it possible to continue your CAD work with the most up-to-date files while on-the-go. To make the most of AutoCAD on web and mobile, AutoCAD 2019 includes new “Save To Web & Mobile” and “Open From Web & Mobile” capabilities. Together, these commands enable you to move files between your desktop, and web and mobile so you can work anywhere. For example, you can take a drawing you were working on at your office, view and edit it in the field on the AutoCAD web or mobile app, and save it back to your local network drive to continue working at your office.
