CAD, or computer-aided design and drafting (CADD), is technology for design and technical documentation, which replaces manual drafting with an automated process.
If you are a designer, drafter, architect or engineer, you have probably used 2D or 3D CAD programs such as AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT software. These widely used software programs can help you draft construction documentation, explore design ideas, visualise concepts through photorealistic renderings and simulate how a design performs in the real world.
Autodesk 2D and 3D CAD software is used by engineering disciplines across all industries. Explore how various professionals use CAD tools to improve processes – from concept to handover.

Fusion 360 is the first 3D CAD, CAM and CAE tool of its kind. It connects your entire product development process in a single cloud-based platform that works on both Mac and PC.
|Why is CAD software better than drawing by hand?|
CAD software allows the user to include precise dimensions in their drawings. When designing in CAD, it is also much more efficient to make updates to a drawing and it streamlines the file sharing process.
|What are the advantages of CAD software?|
CAD software like AutoCAD provides many advantages including:
|Who uses CAD software?|
CAD software is used by many different professions including architects, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, interior designers, civil engineers, landscape architects, industrial designers, P&ID designers, plant engineers, piping designers, MEP engineers, surveyors, urban planners, and GIS specialists.
