AutoCAD alternatives

Make a better choice

AutoCAD forces yearly subscription / rental. Don’t fall into their trap!

If you ever decide to stop your subscription, you won’t be able to open your CAD files!


BricsCAD is the leading AutoCAD style product. Ideal for AutoCAD trained users who want more for less.


RealCAD is the fastest alternative when superior, more affordable drafting and ease of use is required.


IronCAD is measurably superior for 3D productivity. Perfect for industrial and product design.


ArchLine.XP is measurably superior for Architecture, building design, interior design, cabinetry and fit-out work.

Better DWG

BricsCAD boasts 100% Open DWG file compatibility to seamlessly share AutoCAD drawings in an interface AutoCAD users instantly find familiar.

With the same command structure and 1,100+ of the same apps for AutoCAD now available for BricsCAD, who wouldn’t consider switching to a more affordable DWG based CAD software with some special improvements of its own?

BricsCAD is the perfect alternative for AutoCAD trained users and those that use plug-in applications for their industry. Offices with AutoCAD already installed can make the switch easily and with complete confidence that they will be productive immediately.

Windows, Mac and Linux compatible.

Easier, faster drafting

RealCAD is feature-rich with simplified methods of operation and a unique, streamlined interface that clearly set it apart, whilst still exchanging files via Open-DWG, PDF or its own native .CAD format – Make working with your peers easy.

Quicker to learn, faster to use and easier to remember, RealCAD is the best choice for new CAD users needing the highest quality professional drafting output in less time.

RealCAD’s superior 2D tools make it the most popular choice for general purpose drafting. It can be upgraded if required to the 3D version when your needs expand.

Mac and Windows compatible.

Superior MCAD

IronCAD pales AutoCAD into insignificance with the most powerful 3D from which your 2D drawings are automatically derived. It’s simply how 3D should be.

Typically quoted as being 20 x more productive, IronCAD gives you unsurpassed improvements to your bottom-line ROI (return on investment).

Design, test, animate, present, sell, draft and prepare for manufacture, faster and smarter than you’ve ever done before. This is next-generation CAD for discerning businesses.
