Drafters, architects, fine artists and professional designers of all kinds use AutoCAD to draw and edit 2D and 3D digital designs simply and efficiently. Before the personal computer was a fixture of the workplace, one had to draw designs by hand, and edits of any kind meant creating a completely new, hand-drawn draft. With AutoCAD, you can revise designs on the fly. 

Create precision designs, then share them easily with collaborators across platforms. 

Today, AutoCAD is primarily used in the construction, architecture, and engineering, but the software is amenable to any industry that utilizes drafting and design. Interior designers, woodworkers, graphic designers, and fine artists use AutoCAD to plan and realize 2D and 3D designs. Parts of designs are saveable in the program as well, which means that future iterations of an idea are easily replicable and malleable. 

With the rise of 3D printing, AutoCAD is more useful than ever. One person alone can brainstorm, envision, plan, and design a new physical product in AutoCAD, then 3D print it. This kind of creative independence allows industrial designers or mechanical engineers to conceive of new ideas then test them in miniature before having to build the product or project at full-scale. The possibilities are truly endless with AutoCAD.
