AutoLUX is built for Lighting Engineers


Lighting Design Software

Design software for creating working drawings of proposed lighting schemes


Quick creation of lighting scheme designs, providing verification of lighting and power requirements


AutoLUX software is a collection of commands which are added to the standard repertoire of AutoCAD.

These additional commands provide a calculation engine and many drawing editing commands to facilitate drawing completed scheme design. Luminaires and target points enter the drawing as CAD entities, and the calculated results are shown as text or as contours. The full power of AutoCAD remains available to you for manipulating all of these entities.
