What People Are Saying About AutoCAD 2018

Because I'm a sole proprietor and a one-person LLC, I need to be able to put work out quickly. AutoCAD has been really instrumental because I can change floor plans easily and send it to the contractor instead of having to hand-draw the floor plan. It is one expense for your business that is so worth it.

SARAH WILSON,
Interior Designer, Chansaerae Designs

We do all of our drawings in AutoCAD, and all of our standards are set up in it from detailing through lineweights and page sizes. It really is an integral part of our business... we have used AutoCAD to organize all the ways we put together drawings and communicate with other consultants.

TOM PULK,
Senior Associate Vice President, CallisonRTKL

With AutoCAD mobile, I could use the phone [and document] how big the door was and how far it was along the wall. It was better than walking around with a clipboard with the drawing. I was able to complete the initial drawing of the school’s library and do it all in about four hours.
