CAD Solutions

Industry-specific CAD solutions for design, drafting and documentation

Choose the right CAD solution for your needs

Today’s designs are often 3D based and increasingly used throughout business processes, though they are commonly complemented by drafting and documentation. There are also industries and design disciplines in which the main focus is and will continue to be on the 2D design. Whichever industry you are in and whatever your needs, you will find a proven solution in Autodesk’s portfolio. The right solution for you and your company’s needs and preferences is usually defined by a number of factors.

Choosing the right CAD solution can be affected by factors such as:

  • Where you are starting from and your history
  • The objective of your task/project and the specific task
  • The kind of collaboration needs you or your team have
  • How you want to handle the change management process
  • The roles of the staff (designer, engineer, reviewer, drafter, production planner, etc.)
  • The required end result
  • The desired delivery format
  • The experience in the company

It is most common to use an industry-specific solution, though there are also more generic options for both 2D and 3D.
