AutoCAD software has now moved beyond being simply a powerful but generic 2D and 3D draughting and modelling tool, but many companies are still not fully aware to what extent or what additional productivity they can drive within their businesses with the right CAD software investment. With the release of AutoCAD 2020, Autodesk raised the bar even higher with the introduction of One AutoCAD with specialised toolsets.

33 Useful Tips Every AutoCAD Users Should Know (Aug. 2019)
What is AutoCAD With Specialised Toolsets?
Traditionally Autodesk has released different versions of the software for different market sectors, however One AutoCAD now offers even greater value for money as it now includes specialised toolsets that give users access to specific industry focused functionality and libraries in a single subscription. These tools deliver further productivity improvements over and above normal AutoCAD and are all encompassed within the familiar AutoCAD interface.
Each toolset is designed to address many of the traditional bottlenecks facing specific industry sectors including automation of tedious manual tasks, industry calculators, industry specific and customisable content and also automated scheduling and material take off functionalities to mention a few.
- Work more productively with industry-specific toolsets for
architecture, mechanical design, 3D mapping and more.
- Speed up work with industry-specific features and libraries for
architecture, mechanical design, mapping, and more.
- Complete design tasks in a fraction when you use industry-specific
toolsets included with AutoCAD.

Building services design covers a multitude of different tasks, many of which can be difficult to consolidate and very time consuming to undertake using standard 2D and 3D functionality. The MEP toolset helps you to speed up traditional time consuming design, drafting and building services documentation tasks. Featuring over 10000 intelligent mechanical, electric, plumbing and HVAC objects, designing and documenting building services systems is far more productive.
Plant 3D Toolset
The Plant toolset is a collection of specialised tools to aid Plant design and associated documentation and drawing production. Simplify piping design, utilise specialist P&ID functionality, speed up modelling with parametric equipment definitions and structural models, generate piping isometrics and orthographic drawings with this exceptionally powerful plant design toolset.
Map 3D Toolset
The Map 3D toolset is designed to help you utilise and maintain CAD and GIS data to support planning, design, and data management, whilst enabling access to multiple external data sources. The toolsets powerful functionality also enables you to combine essential information in your AutoCAD design and automate workflows.
Raster Design Toolset
The Raster Design toolset delivers major advantages to any one that needs to work with raster data, legacy data from scanned paper drawings, or where re-drawing is simply not a productive or viable option. Raster Design gives users maximum flexibility with a set of tools that enable you to convert raster to vector/dwg or even to directly manipulate raster entities from within AutoCAD for a smooth and efficient workflow
