Firstly, we have our own CAD block library so head over to our cad block pages to check it out. I will continue to build it, and if there is anything missing you want to see just let me know and I’ll get it on here. My aim is to provide best quality blocks, to correct scales, correct layers, that make it easy for you to drop directly into your drawing with no problems. Here are just a small selection of our cad blocks below:
If you still haven’t found what you need then here are our top ten alternatives. Although it is really useful to find free AutoCAD blocks and place them in your models, make sure you are a bit savvy about it. I have had many a problem with AutoCAD blocks and learnt that they are not always worth it. For example, they can be in the wrong units, crazy scales, be corrupt and damage your model, generally badly drawn, have strange layering, and the list goes on. If you are still keen to take a shortcut and find a quick and easy solution in the form of a free AutoCAD block, I have sought out the websites that seem to have the best pickings.
Great selection of blocks at Cadblocks.net, you can download for free and don’t have to register. Also have good images showing you what you will get.
This site is a great starting point. It has everything from people and animals to fixtures, fittings, structural, vehicles and landscaping.
A good range and selection of CAD blocks.
There are a few good quality trees, people and cars that you can download for free on this website, or subscribe to a paid account to access all the blocks.
Syncronia has been suggested to me by a reader. It is a bit different to some of the other options here in that it provides more 3D blocks, and also textures. They are from suppliers so the quality is good and there is a wide range. Worth checking out. You have to register but the blocks are free.
Cad Architect – A reasonable selection with good preview images.
Cad Corner has a huge selection of blocks and details but sadly no preview images.
Good site – American and European dimensions and generally from manufacturers and producers. A huge range of 3D, 2D, Revit, Cad and Sketchup blocks.
Bibliocad requires sign up but has a good mix of stuff – with preview images Some Free and some VIP ones.
Good selection of blocks with preview images. Recommend.
If you still haven’t found what you are looking for there is a fairly comprehensive list of sites here at Xmarks.
