AutoCAD Utility Design
MODEL-BASED ELECTRICAL DISTRIBUTION DESIGN
AutoCAD® Utility Design software combines design and documentation with rules-driven workflows and analysis for electrical distribution design. Improve design accuracy, analyze and optimize network designs for greater performance and reliability, and deliver more consistent and coordinated documentation.
As of February 7, 2017, Autodesk will no longer be selling AutoCAD Utility Design (AUD). Autodesk and Spatial Business Systems (SBS), a software/service provider in the Utility, Telecommunications and Government industry, announced entering into a strategic relationship. As part of that agreement, SBS will be responsible for any future development, support and licensing of successor SBS-branded products based on the current AUD.
