[Updated October 2023]
Welcome to our 22 best free cad block websites article! We have put together our favourite selection of free cad block websites below. But before we dive into that…a little shameless self-promotion…!
We have our own CAD block library, so do head over to our cad block pages to check it out. We will continue to build it, and if there is anything specific you want to see, just give us a shout and we’ll get right to work. Our aim is to provide best quality cad blocks, to correct scales, correct layers, that make it easy for you to drop directly into your drawing with no problems. Most of our cad blocks are available in both imperial and metric units. We also have a selection of premium blocks that you can purchase for a very small fee. You can head over to our shop to browse through this exclusive collection.
We currently feature a good range that includes bathroom cad blocks, furniture cad blocks, door cad blocks, window cad blocks, people cad blocks, tree cad blocks, vehicle cad blocks, landscaping cad blocks, sports cad blocks, and a whole load more!
Best Mixed Price CAD Block Websites
Pimpmydrawing is a valuable resource offering a free library of CAD and vector resources designed to enhance architectural drawings and illustrations. The downloads provided are of high quality and are accessible in both .dwg and .ai file formats.
The site has clear categories and is easy to navigate. The individual cad blocks are free to download. They also provide cad block packs that can be purchased for a reasonable price.
Studio Altenativi has an incredible collection of both free and priced cad blocks that come in both 2D and 3D. You can choose to download their packs that contain a variety of cad blocks in different formats or explore their free resources that are also of great quality.
What’s notable is the flexibility in licensing options—users can select between educational or commercial licences for using their cad blocks. Additionally, the platform showcases CAD block collections curated by other creators, such as CAD Lab Studio, and is open to creating custom collections for users in search of specific resources.
The Post Digital Architecture website follows a similar layout to our previous recommendation offering high quality cad blocks that are both free and for purchase. Just like Studio Alternativi you can choose the type of licence you’d like but this site sometimes gives you the additional option to download a free sample before you buy the cad blocks.
In addition to cad blocks, the platform offers a diverse range of resources in various formats, making it a valuable destination for exploration and discovery.
DWG models has a free cad block library full of 2D cad blocks. While not all blocks are available for free, the platform does offer a substantial selection of free cad blocks across various categories.
You can filter by paid or free, and the selection includes architectural details, bridges, construction details, fences, landscaping, urban planning, and lots more. There is plenty to explore on this site.
Cad-block.com has a very good range of cad blocks that are also organised in categories. The images are very clear and well labelled, so you know exactly what you are getting.
Some of the cad blocks are free and some are for purchase, catering to different user preferences. You don’t need an account to download these blocks. However, the site does have a couple of ads.
CADblocksfree.com has a pretty impressive range of blocks, both in 2D and 3D. They have good search functionality, categories, and images of the blocks. This website allows for user upload in return for access to the paid content, which means that some of the files may have issues with scale, layering, units etc.
Some items are paid items (which given the name of the site is a bit misleading!), but generally there is a great range of free stuff, and you don’t need an account to download. You can consider purchasing a membership if you frequently find yourself using the premium models.
When searching for blocks, you can use the filters in the sidebar to narrow down your selection. Do note that the site has ads that may affect its usability.
