Web / Cloud Autodesk AutoCAD Alternatives

Known for robust compatibility and as the standard application for computer-aided design, Autodesk AutoCAD supports a wide variety of files formats. Though there are other alternatives that support the opening of .dwg files that store 2D and 3D data.

As AutoCAD is paid software, you might want to look into the many free alternatives that are available. On top of this, though AutoCAD is available on most popular desktop and mobile operating systems, it does not have a Linux-based client, so alternatives to AutoCAD that run on Linux are available as well.

  • 3D Orchard

    3D Orchard is a free online platform for crowdsourced design. It includes free, built-in CAD tools and everything needed to turn an idea into a physical product. Because the computer-aided design (CAD) tools are built-in and free, people can edit and evolve each others 3D models. As the 3D models evolve over time, they trace out a tree (hence "3D Orchard"). Any 3D model can be downloaded and 3D printed locally.
