Autodesk AutoCAD is a computer-aided design (CAD) software application that is used for creating 2D and 3D drawings, models, and animations. It was first released in 1982 by Autodesk, Inc. and has since become one of the most popular CAD software packages in the world.
AutoCAD is used by architects, engineers, designers, and drafters to create detailed technical drawings, floor plans, schematics, and other designs. The software allows users to create and manipulate objects, dimensions, and layers in a virtual space, and to export their work into a variety of file formats, including DWG, DXF, and PDF.
AutoCAD also features a range of tools for visualizing and presenting designs, including photorealistic rendering, animation, and 3D printing capabilities. It is available for both Windows and macOS operating systems, and is regularly updated with new features and improvements.
