Within the intuitive, creative SketchBook environment, even new users can be productive within minutes.SketchBook Designer is especially helpful for:

  • Blank screen illustration
  • Combining and composing images
  • Graphic communication

  • Sketch directly in AutoCAD without using third-party software
  • Manipulate and composite images to quickly create variations for richer communication
