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.
We currently feature a good range that include: bathroom blocks, furniture cad blocks, table blocks, chair 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!
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.
CADdetails is the leading provider of manufacturer-specific building product information, delivering to more than 452,000 architects, engineers, contractors, and other design industry professionals throughout North America.
CAD Blocks.net continues to be high up on my list. Great selection of blocks, you can download for free and don’t have to register. Also have good images showing you what you will get, all categorised.
CAD Blocks Free has a pretty impressive range of blocks, both in 2D and 3D. They have good search functionality, categories and images of the blocks. Some items are paid items, but generally there is a great range of free stuff, and you don’t need an account to download. I like this site!
This site is a great starting point. It has everything from people and animals to fixtures, fittings, structural, vehicles and landscaping. Only problem – its not too easy to find what you are looking for. You have to do a lot of clicking before you find the download you want, and each download is one individual file, not a selection – so it can be a little time consuming. Having said that, they do have a good range of 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 – has a large collection – interesting range of stuff from normal blocks to colour symbols, to cad details and building layouts. Much of the content is paid access, and you have to have an account to download anything so it is difficult to see what is free and what is not….
BIM Object has replaced AutoDesk Seek. It has a massive collection of 2D but mainly 3D objects in many different formats, ranging from SketchUp to Revit, to ArchiCAD. Takes a while to filter through to find what you need, but I guess that comes with such a large database of files.
Bibliocad requires sign up but has a good mix of stuff – with preview images Some Free and some VIP ones. I use Bibliocad quite a lot, but one downside is that a lot of the content is user contributed so sometimes quality can be a bit hit and miss.
