AutoCAD 2017 Industry “Flavors.” Tailored for the Work You Do. Ready Now.

AutoCAD 2017 badge. AutoCAD 2017 industry-specific versions.

It’s like a happy family reunion where all you hear is “My, how you’ve grown!” Every AutoCAD® 2017 flavor—AutoCAD Architecture, AutoCAD Civil 3D, AutoCAD Electrical, AutoCAD Map 3D, AutoCAD Mechanical, AutoCAD MEP, AutoCAD P&ID, AutoCAD Plant 3D, and AutoCAD Utility Design—has shown up, ready to impress.

Take a look below. “Vanilla” AutoCAD 2017 is pretty awesome (see AutoCAD 2017: It’s… Alive!). And you can customize it any which way you can imagine. But the AutoCAD software of your dreams may already exist.

AutoCAD Architecture 2017 badge

Design and document more efficiently with an AutoCAD-based architectural drafting tool created specifically for architectural design.

AutoCAD Civil 3D 2017 badge

Use civil engineering software tools support Building Information Modeling (BIM) and help reduce the time it takes to design, analyze, and implement changes

AutoCAD Electrical 2017 badge

Create and manage designs using a complete package of electrical design CAD features purpose-built for electrical engineers and control designers.

AutoCAD Map 3D 2017 badge

Access, analyze, and share CAD and GIS data in support of planning, predesign, and management decisions.

AutoCAD Mechanical 2017

Use all the functionality of AutoCAD plus libraries of standards-based parts and tools to accelerate and enhance the mechanical CAD process for manufacturing.

AutoCAD MEP 2017 badge

Draft, design, and document building systems, and create more accurate designs, within the familiar AutoCAD environment. Increase productivity using automated drafting tasks, manufacturers’ parts, and interference detection.

AutoCAD P&ID 2017 badge

Quickly create and edit piping and instrumentation designs using familiar AutoCAD in-context editing tools.

AutoCAD Plant 3D 2017

Create 3D plant designs more quickly by laying out steel structures, model equipment, and route piping design using AutoCAD commands; no need to involve CAD administrators.

AutoCAD Utility Design 2017 badge

Use model-based electrical distribution network design, analysis, and documentation with rule-driven workflow to improve design accuracy; analyze and optimize network designs for greater performance and reliability; and deliver more consistent and coordinated documentation.

Leslie is fanning the glowing embers of the AutoCAD Blog into a raging (yet carefully managed!) bonfire, bringing light and warmth to AutoCAD customers wherever they're huddled. He has been writing, editing, helping design, and managing the production of high-tech marketing communications—everything from party invitations, web banners, and tweets to annual reports, white papers, and animated videos—for longer than he cares to admit. So don't ask. Leslie is thrilled to be back in the Autodesk saddle after 14 years spent wandering the desolate, non-Autodesk high-tech landscape.
