Key features

Cadmium is a free, multi-purpose CAD software with DWG support. It can create simple or complex drawings, and supports standards used in a variety of disciplines, mechanical engineering, building design, architecture, landscape design, and more.

INTERFACE WITH RIBBON, COMMAND LINE & PROPERTY GRID

The combination of ribbon tools, command line and property grid helps you work faster and it is familiar and easy to use. Even if it's been years since you've spent much time on CAD, you'll be able to get up to speed, and be productive, quickly and easily.

FILE TYPES SUPPORT

Cadmium natively opens and saves DXF, DWG (AutoCAD) and SKP (Sketchup) files. It can also export to PDF and various image file formats.
