AutoCAD is computer-aided design (CAD) software trusted by architects, engineers, and construction professionals to create accurate 2D and 3D drawings. Draw, annotate, and design 2D geometry and 3D models with solids, surfaces, and mesh objects. Automate tasks like comparing drawings, counting, adding blocks, creating BOMs, and more. AutoCAD 2022 software includes industry-specific tool sets, an enhanced connected experience across all platforms and Autodesk products, and new automations like Count. Create single or multiple line text (mtext) as a single text object. Format text, columns, and boundaries. Create dimensions automatically. Hover over the selected objects to preview before creating. Create leaders with a variety of content, including text or blocks. Easily format leader lines and set styles. Create and edit centerlines and center marks that move automatically as you move related objects. Create tables with data and symbols in rows and columns, apply formulas, and link to Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.
Draw revision clouds around new changes in a drawing to quickly identify their updates. Save views by name to easily return to a specific view for quick reference or to apply them to gallery windows. 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 when the value of the field changes. Enable concurrent 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 shape, size or configuration. Create and edit objects in circular or rectangular patterns, or along a path. Apply geometric and dimensional constraints to maintain relationships between drawing geometry.
