AutoCAD R17 is free for everyone to use. However, AutoCAD’s competitors, including Illustrator and Inkscape, are paid-for.

Free AutoCAD alternatives

The free AutoCAD alternatives below have similar features to AutoCAD. However, they are developed and marketed by different teams and organizations than Autodesk and hence are subject to a different degree of quality and support than AutoCAD. In many cases, free software, especially when compared to commercial alternatives, is also lacking in features and quality. It is not recommended to use these applications on a regular basis and in many cases, they are intended for prototyping or for specific purposes and hence are not suitable for your regular work.

Some alternatives to AutoCAD also come with additional software that is not included with AutoCAD.


ArchiCAD is a powerful, feature-rich CAD software suite. A fully-featured desktop application for designing and printing structural drawings, ArchiCAD includes drawing tools, models, and plotters. ArchiCAD integrates with other Autodesk and non-Autodesk applications, such as AutoCAD, SolidWorks, and Insight.

ArchiCAD has both a Web-based component, called ArchiCAD Web, and a commercial desktop component. ArchiCAD Web is free for both single-user and multi-user use. A registration fee is required to use the ArchiCAD desktop component.

ArchiCAD is licensed for use by individual users or in small and medium-sized businesses. ArchiCAD Professional Edition and ArchiCAD Architectural Edition are priced at US$ 1,795 and US$ 3,795, respectively.

ArchiCAD Architectural Edition is a full-featured version of ArchiCAD that is optimized for the creation of architectural 3D models and buildings.

New features:
DWG import and export formats were added (2003)
DXF importing and exporting
Feature layers were added (2003)
New JavaScript API for programming of graphical elements (2003)

AutoCAD 2003 was announced and released on September 10, 2002.

The ability to export to DWG was added in AutoCAD 2003. It was a major departure from past editions, as DWG was an open format, not a proprietary format. This allowed for easier portability and exchange with other applications.

Another new feature of this release was a new drawing class library in C++ for generating and manipulating drawings. This was the beginning of the development of the C++ programming language that became part of AutoLISP in AutoCAD 2008.

New methods were added to the scripting languages VBA and AutoLISP. These methods replaced features such as the ability to write to specific cells of the Clipboard, and the ability to implement formatted printing.

On December 9, 2003, AutoCAD was announced as the “World’s Most Frequently Used CAD Application” by the American Productivity and Quality Center, based on usage statistics collected from 300,000 survey respondents. The following year, on September 9, 2004, AutoCAD was listed by Gartner, Inc. as one of the top software products of the year, based on the popularity of the AutoCAD software product.

AutoCAD 2004

AutoCAD 2004 was released on September 17, 2003. It introduced a new file format in the DXF standard, introduced 64-bit floating-point numbers, and changed the UI of the program to a new look.

AutoCAD 2004 was the first release of AutoCAD that was released exclusively for Windows.

Also introduced in AutoCAD 2004 was the dynamic block technology. In previous versions of AutoCAD, blocks were ‘fixed’ elements that stayed in the drawing no matter what the current settings in the drawing preferences might be. For example, an existing block can be saved in two different formats. One is its traditional layout and the other is a smaller format suitable for use in a menu bar. Both of these formats are saved in the drawing as a block. In AutoCAD 2004, a block is a ‘dynamic’ block. It can be placed anywhere within a drawing, and it can be moved to another location. It is associated with a new XML (XML interchange format

What’s New In?

Increased drawing-authoring flexibility:

Remove columns and rows for rows or columns so you can insert objects anywhere without restricted rules. (video: 1:30 min.)

Progressive Refinement:

Refine the 2D draft drawing creation process with parametric refinement, so you can refine the drawing in 2D based on 3D geometry and dimensions, 2D perspective and angle, or object properties.

AutoCAD’s new 3D modeling capabilities:

Work with 3D block models and import blocks from other applications (Autodesk Revit, SketchUp, Rhino and others), and incorporate blocks in your drawings with CAD objects. Enable anyone to access and create 3D models.

Enhanced Object Navigator:

See multiple properties and dimensions for the same object, and manage a wide range of display preferences.

Cross-platform experience:

Use AutoCAD from any platform, including Mac and Windows, as well as mobile devices. Easily connect to other apps, including AutoCAD Lite and AutoCAD for Android and iOS.


The new features and improvements will be available as part of the new release on January 31, 2020.


The AutoCAD 2023 software incorporates a host of new features that will help users to:

Launch drawings and projects faster with new drawing-authoring capabilities and enhancements to the 2D draft design process.

Quickly annotate designs with new markup tools that let you import, highlight, copy, cut, and paste text, graphics, and other objects.

Import and annotate parts and sections of drawings from other applications. Create and work with 3D block models. Design with parametric refinements for 2D objects.

Use Pro/ENGINEER and Revit models as parametric objects, and import 3D models directly into drawings.

Refine the 2D design process and increase user productivity with the new cross-platform capabilities and enhanced object navigator.

And much more…

New Object Navigator for parametric refinement

Based on extensive customer feedback, we are enhancing the 2D design experience by refining the 2D design process.

When you create a 2D drawing in AutoCAD, the drawing engine creates the initial design. You then have to refine the 2D drawing creation process to define the dimensions and other properties of objects, parts, and groups
