AutoCAD® 2012:  Take Design Further

AutoCAD® delivers the powerful tools you need to seamlessly participate in 3D design workflows, helping drive your projects to completion more quickly than ever before, with new and expanded workflows for conceptual design, model documentation, and reality capture.

More easily explore, document, and communicate design ideas with a wide range of time-saving enhancements to the features you use most.


With flexible mesh, surface, and solid modeling tools - along with the benefits of Autodesk Inventor Fusion - AutoCAD provides the flexibility to explore design ideas quickly and easily.


New Model Documentation tools enable you to save time by automatically generating intelligent documentation for AutoCAD, Inventor, and other models.

Native DWG™ technology support allows you to effectively collaborate across teams, sharing critical design data securely, efficiently, and accurately.

Configure your settings, extend the software, build custom workflows, develop your own application, or simply select an industry-tailored version already available. And new migration tools help ease your transition to AutoCAD 2012 from previous versions.

Autodesk Design Suite combines the power and flexibility of AutoCAD software with leading visualization, presentation, conceptual design, and sketching solutionsin a single, cost-effective package.

Autodesk® Design Suites

Autodesk Design Suites extend the power and flexibility of your familiar AutoCAD workflow by integrating leading design and visualization software into a single, cost-effective package. With best-in-class workflows for design, sketching, illustration, and animated visualization, you can create powerful visualizations and interactive presentations that help you market and sell concepts before they are real.

  • Improve productivity and enhance design with a single suite of products that integrates easily into your existing workflow.

  • Communicate more clearly with clients and facilitate a smoother approval process at every stage of design.

  • Create compelling, emotionally engaging visualizations that inspire confidence in your presentation — and help you win more business. 

AutoCAD® for Mac

Now containing powerful 3D surface, mesh, and solid modeling tools, AutoCAD provides the utmost flexibility to explore design ideas. The intuitive tools enable you to digitally sculpt your ideas into almost any shape imaginable.


Move from concept to completion more efficiently and faster than ever before, using the timesaving documentation tools in AutoCAD. Parametric drawing tools, dynamic blocks, sheet sets, and an action recorder enable you to maximize productivity and accuracy when documenting designs.

And with native DWG™ technology support, you can effectively collaborate across teams, sharing critical design data securely, efficiently, and accurately. Presentation-ready graphics, rendering tools, and powerful plotting and 3D printing capabilities enable you to communicate your design intent clearly and effectively.

Plus, if you need to customize AutoCAD to meet your unique needs, it's easier than you may think. Configure your settings, extend the software, build custom workflows, develop your own application, or simply select an industry-tailored version already available.
