Every now and then it’s nice to come across some free AutoCAD linetypes to use on that certain project.
Since the AutoCAD program comes with various linetypes, such as continuous (solid straight line), hidden, dashed, center and dotted lines (and more!), searching for free line types is something a CAD user may only need to do occasionally.
As you'll see throughout our site, we've taken some of the leg work out of searching the net for useful AutoCAD additions.
It is a good idea to download them all and store them in an easily accessible directory that you can sift through when needed.
