With the 2D drafting and drawing features in Autodesk's 2D CAD software solutions, drafters can design, edit and share precise technical drawings and layouts.
AutoCAD software for 2D drafting can help you:
Autodesk offers specialised versions of AutoCAD software for architecture, MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) and piping design.
All AutoCAD products support the DWG file format, so you can easily review 2D drawings in 3D programmes. Download a free* trial of our 2D drafting software, such as AutoCAD LT and experience it for yourself.
AutoCAD Inventor LT Suite (US site) delivers AutoCAD LT and Inventor LT software together, providing a cost-effective way to introduce 3D mechanical design into your 2D workflows.
