An introduction to AutoCAD as most referred architecture and engineering software-

AutoCAD may not be the pioneer of Computer-Aided Design programs. Still, it is, undoubtedly, the most recognized by far, to the point that it has also become the undisputed and most accepted reference, along with other programs and alternatives from his own company, Autodesk, for professional architecture and engineering.


If we had to define AutoCAD in a few words, we would say that it is a CAD-type of software oriented to drawing and modeling in 2D and 3D. The program allows the user to create and modify geometric models with an almost infinite and innovative capacity to develop all types of structures and objects.

This most robust ability to work in different fields has made AutoCAD transcend its traditional use in architecture and engineering to enter the world of graphic and interior design. Currently, AutoCAD software has many specialized auxiliary tools that cover every kind of industrial field related to 2D and 3D modeling.

The present article briefs our readers with most of the salient features about AutoCAD 2022. We have mainly described the latest and other software elements below.

AutoCAD today 2022

Currently, AutoCAD is refining its 2D and 3D design features, its interaction with the cloud, and its compatibility with other programs and alternatives, expanding its functionalities.

As, for example:

2D Design AutoCAD

In the latest version of the software, AutoCAD has substantially improved the functions for several 2D designs, refining the accuracy and innovation of the tools by improving some options like-

  • Create dimensions automatically
  • Different Linkable forms with spreadsheets applications
  • Storing custom views and dynamic blocks
  • Ability to extract any data from objects, blocks, and attributes
  • Matrices creation and innovation

3D Design AutoCAD

For 3D modeling in the software, Autodesk has focused on improving rendering and compatibility with other programs which complement AutoCAD

  • More realistic 3D modeling
  • Attach point cloud files
  • Apply realistic lighting in renderings
  • Create cross-sectional drawings
  • Rendering directly in the cloud

Latest features 2022

Following closely and describing the latest technologies, Autodesk is focusing its efforts on cross-device compatibility and working increasingly in the cloud

  • Cloud storage and querying
  • Multi-device support
  • Quick measurement section
  • File’s progress history
  • Block pallet


We describe some fundamental importance and information about the most advanced and accepted CAD software, which has proved a boon to the professional architecture and engineering field. We have provided sufficient information regarding the AutoCAD software in the above content.

Happy Reading.
