2D DRAFTING AND DRAWING

Autodesk has software, apps, and resources for 2D drafting and 2D drawing. 

What is 2D drafting and drawing?

2D drafting and drawing is the process of creating and editing technical drawings, as well as annotating designs. Drafters use computer-aided design (CAD) software to develop floor plans, building permit drawings, building inspection plans, and landscaping layouts.

CAD software for 2D drafting can be used to draft designs more quickly and with greater precision, without using stencils and technical drawing instruments. 2D CAD software also allows users to document and annotate drawings with text, dimensions, leaders, and tables.
