The Simple Design Tool for Smart Ideas

Clearly Communicate Ideas
Use AutoCAD Freestyle to deliver highly polished drawings to clients, architects, contractors, and other project partners--it's better than a hand sketch any day. Share your drawings with nearly anyone, because AutoCAD Freestyle produces files in the same format used by AutoCAD: genuine DWG. You can also more efficiently create high-quality PDF, DWF, JPEG, PNG, or BMP files for digital communication, archiving, and reuse.

Get Started Quickly
It's exceptionally easy for people unfamiliar with CAD software to use AutoCAD Freestyle. Download it and start drawing right away--without any training. AutoCAD Freestyle has a simple user interface and just the tools you need to draw floor plans and layouts quickly and easily, all in one place. Check out the AutoCAD Freestyle community site to get productive faster, with support from video tutorials and user-submitted tips.

Leave No Room for Error
AutoCAD Freestyle lets you draw quickly without sacrificing quality. Create accurate, detailed plans and layouts to scale with a simplified toolset for creating standard shapes (lines, arc, circle rectangle), annotating your drawings (dimension, text, fills), sketching, doodling, and inserting images and symbols. The grid on your drawing surface helps you understand spatial dimensions, such as proportion and distance, to solve problems more easily. It's just like drawing on graph paper.

Don't Start from Scratch
When you use AutoCAD Freestyle, you don't have to reinvent the wheel. To save time, select from a library of pre-drawn, commonly used symbols--such as doors and windows--or insert and trace over a photograph. If you don't want to start from scratch, start with one of the sample drawings provided or download one from the AutoCAD Freestyle community site.

Built for You
AutoCAD Freestyle is ideal for drawing garden and landscape designs, room addition and remodeling plans, electrical schematics, custom parts, and more. Unlike other general drawing and office productivity software, AutoCAD Freestyle is purpose-built for creating plans and layouts. If you need simplified 2D drawing software you can use without training, AutoCAD Freestyle is for you.

Create Files That CAD Professionals Use
Whether you want to view files created in AutoCAD software or share your ideas with CAD professionals, it's simple because AutoCAD Freestyle is AutoCAD compatible. It produces files in the same format used by AutoCAD--DWG--which is also one of the most widely used design formats.

Windows 7 Support
Use a touch-enabled device with support for Microsoft Windows 7 multi-touch functionality, including flicks.

What's New

Numeric Entry
Adjust the size of an object--line, rectangle, circle, or arc--by simply entering a measurement. It's much easier than dragging the object to an exact size.

Flip Objects
It's simpler to create symmetry. Make mirrored shapes by copying and then flipping objects vertically or horizontally.

Erase Using Windows Selection
Erase just a selected section of an object.

DWG Support
Open DWG files from AutoCAD software and other DWG-compatible applications.

Scale Multiple Objects
No more dragging individual objects of a complex drawing to adjust their size. Simply select all of the objects and drag to the desired size, or right-click on it and enter a percentage.

Predrawn Content
New symbols for trees, shrubs, stoves, and more help you draw faster than ever.

Rotation Grip
Gives you more control while rotating an object, and provides easier-to-read feedback.

DWG Roundtrip Mode Buttons
It's now easier to work with DWG files created in software other than AutoCAD Freestyle. New buttons allow you to toggle between the viewport mode and paper overlay mode so that you are always drawing to scale--even if your source DWG file is highly complex.
