Another new version of one of the most popular CAD design programs.
AutoCAD 2024 is built to speed up workflows and enable you to seamlessly share your vision with innovations designed to unlock your creative potential.
The AutoCAD portfolio is flexible and tailored to your design needs with AutoCAD, AutoCAD LT and our latest offering – AutoCAD Web. From complex designs to field annotation, AutoCAD 2024 has something for everyone.
New AutoCAD 2024 features and machine learning technology enable teams to discover insights and leverage automation, all with software trusted by millions to design, engineer, and automate design processes anywhere, anytime.
Tailor AutoCAD to your business needs with customizations including APIs, thousands of third-party applications, and seven specialized toolkits with over 750,000 symbols, parts, and detail elements.
Autodesk continues to build industry-leading design software – such as Revit, Civil 3D, Inventor and Autodesk Docs – to create a truly connected design experience with AutoCAD 2024.
“AutoCAD 2024 introduces new machine learning capabilities to push the boundaries of productivity and speed up our customers’ workflows, whether it’s saving time in everyday tasks or introducing new ways to work and create,” said Dania El Hassan, Director of AutoCAD Product Management. “With new features like Smart Blocks: Place and Replace and new updates to Marker Assistant, we’re proud of the constant innovation we can deliver to our customers.”
Here are some of the new innovations you’ll find in AutoCAD 2024.
Close information gaps in collaborative AutoCAD workflows and stay connected to critical data throughout the project lifecycle. With Activity Insights, you can stay informed of important file changes and accesses throughout the lifecycle of your project, with details of multi-user actions in a DWG file, requiring virtually zero configuration for files stored locally, on LAN, and on cloud servers.
“Before the introduction of Activity Insights in AutoCAD 2024, we had to search and check information such as file publishing and publish date. Sometimes it took up to 30 minutes, and now we can see it right away. For other tasks, it can save us a minute or two here and there. All of this really translates into significant time savings.”

Quickly find the blocks you need and replace one or more blocks with machine learning-based suggestions, recently used blocks, and manual selection of a replacement block. These powerful automations save you the time you would have to spend manually searching for blocks and replacing each instance, giving you a boost in productivity.
Automatically place blocks in your drawing by inferring the position of the next block based on where you have previously inserted the same blocks in the DWG file, reducing the number of clicks and saving time.
Accelerate your cross-platform markup work with enhanced machine learning capabilities and essential experience enhancements, allowing you to safely and confidently share and annotate drawings on your desktop, web, or mobile devices. With Markup Import, you can incorporate feedback from a PDF or printed document and automatically make changes to your drawings. With the improved Markup Assist, you can now update existing drawing text and automatically fade out markups that have already been resolved. AutoCAD uses machine learning to detect specific instructions in the marking text, which allows shortcuts to commands such as “MOVE”, “COPY” or “DELETE”.
“Markup Import and Markup Assist in AutoCAD 2024 saves me 10-15 minutes of time when making changes and editing in the drawing.”
~ Brett Graverholt, Drafting Coordinator, Electronic Contracting Company (ECC)
AutoCAD 2024 offers new performance enhancements for 2D graphics and improved stability, accuracy, and performance, including up to 9x faster switching between layout tabs compared to AutoCAD 2023. AutoCAD 2024 installation has also been improved, allowing installation up to 2x faster than for AutoCAD 2023.
AutoCAD LT 2024 delivers a best-in-class 2D design experience. As in AutoCAD, Smart Blocks: placement functionality is included. And for the first time, AutoCAD LT 2024 includes AutoLISP – giving organizations an additional tool to streamline their processes, adhere to CAD standards, and leverage thousands of existing automations for AutoCAD-based programs.
With the recently released AutoCAD Web offering, users can create basic CAD designs online, and view, edit, and annotate drawings in the field using a web browser or mobile app.
The AutoCAD 2024 and AutoCAD LT 2024 subscription includes access to AutoCAD on the web and on mobile devices, enabling your new group of collaborators to effectively communicate ideas with colleagues and stakeholders on the go.
AutoCAD subscribers get access to exclusive web and mobile features, including using AutoLISP for customization to automate command sequences over the web, enabling local file access to access DWG files stored on a local drive or LAN, repositioning the ribbon commands on the web to mimic desktop locations, batch print to PDF, view or edit MTEXT objects, and directly open links on mobile devices.
AutoCAD for Mac 2024 and AutoCAD LT for Mac 2024 are also now available, including support for M-series chips.
