AutoCAD is computer-aided design (CAD) software that solar designers and engineers can use to create precise 2D and 3D drawings, layouts and blueprints of Solar PV plants.
As a software, it is extremely feature-loaded and broad. This program covers every basic and intermediate function that a solar designer would need to know, in order to create professional grade client-ready designs.
AutoCAD for solar is a highly sought-after skill by employers around the globe. As a software, AutoCAD allows solar designers and engineers to create comprehensive project designs for ground-mounted, rooftop, carport and sloped roof solar projects. AutoCAD also provides energy production modelling, automatic module layout, wire sizing and stringing, and electric single line diagram generation. Additionally, with AutoCAD, designers can easily compare and contrast different array layouts for their various projects and choose from a growing library of mounting systems to implement the optimal design.
