OneNote Add-in for AutoCAD!

Hi! This is Sameeksha from the OneNote Storage and Collaboration team!

In an effort to boost the productivity of engineering professionals, we have created the OneNote add-in for AutoCAD.

The add-in is available for download in the AutoDesk app store (details below).

What is AutoCAD?

  • AutoCAD is the most popular software used by architecture, engineering and construction professionals to create 2D and 3D drawings.
  • It is used by millions of professionals around the world.

What does the OneNote add-in for AutoCAD do?

  • Our OneNote add-in for AutoCAD allows professionals to take notes in OneNote alongside their drawings in AutoCAD.
  • Notes are automatically saved to the cloud.

How does it look?

This is how it looks in the AutoCAD software:


Let me see some code!

We have open-sourced this add-in on GitHub: OneNote-For-AutoCAD

Check out the code to see the integration with AutoCAD and calls to the OneNote API. You can use the code in OneNoteManager.cs to bootstrap your own OneNote C# projects.

How do I install and use it?

  1. To see the add-in working on your local machine, you will need AutoCAD installed (trial/full version, AutoCAD 2013 or above).
  2. Download and install the add-in from the AutoDesk app store here.
  3. The OneNote add-in will be visible in the Add-ins tab.

You can also see the add-in in action in this video.

Any feedback/suggestions?

We would love to hear any suggestions you have, to make this add-in better!

Thanks for your time!
