With new and updated tools for 3D conceptual design, model documentation and reality capture, AutoCAD software helps design professionals maximize productivity.
Powerful functionality and customized tools allow each type of AutoCAD software to assist with projects across building, infrastructure, product, factory, plant, and other types of design. One of the best ways to purchase AutoCAD is in the new Autodesk Design Suites. These cost-effective, fully integrated packages include AutoCAD plus a range of specialized tools for conceptual design, analysis, and visual communication. Compare AutoCAD products.
"One of the reasons people buy regular computers is because they think they are saving money. But in reality, you can get a great workstation for less than the cost of a standard PC. For example, the Lenovo E30 is a fabulous workstation. It's very robust. AutoCAD runs wonderfully on it."
