New 2022 Specialised Toolsets

AutoCAD 2022 includes seven specialised toolsets with industry-specific workflows, libraries, and automation for architecture, mechanical design, 3D mapping and more.

Studies showed an average productivity gain of up to 63% for AutoCAD tasks completed with the help of specialised toolsets.

Key benefits: Intelligent, Automations, Faster, Trusted

toolsets

Electrical Toolset: 95% Overall productivity gain, providing real time error checking and comparisons of requested changes to the current project. comprehensive project reports such as components, wires and bill of materials can be automatically generated. Quickly design panel layouts and schematic diagrams using a library of over 65,000 electrical symbols. 

autocad

Architecture Toolset: 61% overall productivity gain. Use your 3D model to generate evaluations and sections without the need to project lines from the floor plan, saving time to focus on valuable design decisions. 8,500 intelligent architectural objects and styles with features specifically for architects

autocad

MEP Toolset: 85% Overall productivity gain – Tasks that could take 100 hours, only take 15 hours with the MEP toolset. Efficiently draft, design, and document building systems with over 10,500 intelligent mechanical, electrical, and plumbing objects.

autocad

Plant 3D Toolset: Produce P&IDs efficiently and integrate them into 3D plant design models using specialized plant design and engineering features.

autocad

Raster design Toolset: Convert raster images into DWGTM objects with raster-to-vector tools. Easily edit and clean up raster images while transforming them into vector drawings within a familiar AutoCAD environment.

autocad

Map 3D Toolset: Improve planning and design by incorporating GIS and CAD data. Manage spatial data with standard data schema, automated business workflows, and report templates.

autocad

Mechanical Toolset: 55% Overall productivity gain through speeding up product design through automated mechanical engineering tasks. The intelligent layer management system places items on the correct layer, colour, and linetype as the drawing is created. Assists in making complete machine parts along with access to over 700,000 intelligent manufacturing parts, features and symbols.
